    Didn't I mention that already?

    Yes, you did, but you also said:

    All videos from the 3D samples section of the Kodi Wiki play here on the RPi-4 with 9.2.4

    Hence, my request for clarification. To me this statement implied that you tested the 3D files in a setup that could ostensibly play 3D.....otherwise, why test 3D files since you wouldn't you know they are working to begin with? Pi4 has played 2D since it was first released.

    Sorry for my confusion....


    That being said, I'd be willing to help test it on my Pi4 through a Denon Atmos receiver and BenQ-2050 3D projector if that helps

    but the display is still showing two images.

    I haven’t tried any of the millhouse builds yet because I am still using the Pi3B+. When the Pi4 has a release that supports 3-D I will start messing with it. I have tried the native LE build with 2D and it worked fine a few months back.


    When you say it’s still had to images are you talking about 3D-MVC?

    Sorry for the very late reply. Here is a list someone else compiled.

    You're sorry! It's been 6 months for me!


    I have seen that thread before and it has a lot of good info, especially if you want a ready to go box. However, my goal is to use an open source platform like LibreELEC to do this on a Pi.

    I am running LibreELEC v9.1.002 on a Pi3B+. That in itself is not a problem. Works great!


    However, I have an extensive Plex infrastructure with a server, multiple clients, DVR, etc. All my family members use and like Plex. I prefer the interface myself over Kodi. I'm not here to compare the two or discuss switching to Kodi. I use LibreELEC for the ability to play 3D-MVC. So I installed the Plex For Kodi add-on which gives me the Plex interface and user-account-based login, library access etc but also the ability to play 3D-MVC......ostensibly......


    However, when I run it in LibreELEC (as compared to the old OpenELEC or just Kodi) it will launch and run, but with some issues. My Plex library is there, I can browse, change users, etc. However, if I try to play a 3D-MVC movie (one that plays fine in LibreELEC natively) I get that pop-up screen asking me how I want Kodi to treat it:



    Problem is I can't do anything in that panel. I can't navigate it with the remote and I even hooked up a mouse to it and still can't click on it. All I can get are the Kodi controls on the bottom. It's like there is a clear Plex or Kodi screen on top of that popup windows that is keeping me from "touching" the popup window to select anything or even click "OK". The Kodi control work, but obviously I can't see most of the screen and I can't tell Kodi what 3D mode I want to run it in.


    Second problem is that if I hit "Stop" on the remote or "Back" as per Plex control, it just completely stop and gives me a black screen. System isn't locked up. I can reboot it via SSH, but that's the ONLY way I can get it to do anything. I can't get back to any other screen.


    I know LibreELEC doesn't make this plugin but I'm curious if anyone here has used it successfully .


    Thanks!

    For anyone who wants to know, I originally installed v9.1 on the 3B+. When I ran 3D-MVC videos (possibly with all of them, but I didn't add anything but MVC to my Kodi library yet) the video would stutter/stop a lot and was not really usable.

    When i went into the update repositories and checked for LibreElec updates it said it found one, but it was the v9.02 version, which is actually a LOWER version number. I let it "update" the system and it ran stable after that.

    I'm guessing the v9.1 series is still beta maybe?

    Thank you for the explanation. Being new to the Pi other than installing an imagine and using it, I wasn't sure.

    When you said:
    I've tested updating the USB controller firmware from LibreELEC (as described in the article, just drop "sudo" as it's not needed in LE) and it worked fine.

    You ran a command line in LE? How did you do that? All I see is the GUI.

    The link seems to suggest that it is a firmware update. Without knowing exactly what the program does, the best solution is to create a new SD card and install Raspbian. Run the commands under Raspbian and once complete and the version check is correct. Reboot with your LE SD card and all should be fine.

    So is there normally a need for updating firmware that is independent of the OS itself or is that normally part of the OS in the Pi world?
