    I have a number of Minix X8H-Plus boxes that have been running LibreELEC 16 for a few year.


    12 Months back I had tested LibreELEC 17 from an SD card.


    Recently I updated them to LibreELEC 17 using the update directory method using this build


    "LibreELEC-X8-H_PlusGen1.arm-8.2RC-kodi_17.6-final"


    I have tried to upgrade to 18 using builds from post 1 using the the update directory method.


    However I always get the message that the build is not compatible with X8-H_PlusGen1.arm hardware


    I also tried to burn 8.3 to SD and booted with toothpick but I end ups with a message after the 120 seconds as below


    invalid argument...

    ...3.0.28 2015-05-16

    read only file system

    xt4....read only file system while ........open /dev/mmcblk0p2

    ......

    fsck failed .... Your system is broken beyond repair

    ........


    if I boot the box without sd it goes to internal 17.7 fine.


    UPDATE....


    This morning I went back and put the 8.3 tar from page 1 + .ncompat in the 17.6 update directory.


    This worked and I now have 18.3 installed.


    However it appears the repositories are a bit strange


    I compared to my RP3 and both have LibreELEC Add-Ons 9.01 but when I go in there is way less categories and in particular PVR clients has old versions listed that ar not compatible.


    eg PVR Clients


    Argus TV is 3.5.4.3 on PI and 2.5.6.1 in Minix box


    The Enigma2 Addon I need is not listed just the old VU+ one.


    Is there a way to clean out the repository structure ?


    I tried a complete reset of Libreelec and now when I try to access the Libreelec repository it says it can't connect ?


    Update


    The problem is that the LibreELEC Add-Ons Repository - Team LibreELEC - 9.0.1 is not available to download .


    Any advice would be appreciated
