chewitt M88RS6060 is very popular chip updated for S2X and in may opinion stable and signal sensitive tuner chip, i also have one on mecool-m8s-dvb-s2x, alexelec builds have most complex releases for that device (based on kernel amlogic 3.xx ) with driver implementaion lacking s2x extensions because standard linux kernel also today (6.7) have incomplete support for S2X DVB API ... and i think it is not technical problem to enable it, thru blocker is milions stboxes with s2 only ...
missing package "
expect" //libreelec 11<br>
already included deps:
bluetoothctl, pacmd, pactl, awk //libreelec 11<br>
also util "btmgmt" from package bluez-tools and firmware will be missing on some board where MAC BT adrees change is neccesary for hci0 to be accesible<br> by change in blueetoth.service like here<br>
Hi. maybe author of this addon have better knowledge and wan't to implement "combined audio output"

Hi . Anyone tray this ? this thing today like boomerang incoming to my head ...
Hi ... For LaFrite 512MB and probably for 1GB this CMA value should be not 128MB but 160MB i am also checked 192MB but Kodi GUI not starting. But I don't know if this will be changed in Libreelec repo statically in kernel config other sbc/box-es will start normally (especially 512MB) ,
by now solution is to append in extlinux.conf at the end kernel boot parametr line additional parametr "cma=160M"
this must be set to proper hardware decoding and acceleration by drm_prime...
I can confirm now , avc1/h264 up to 1080p works on LaFrite 512MB with hardware acceleration..
don't use crazycat TBS driver for that device, it is know bug for some transponders, if you use libreelec x86_64 you must upgrade to latest nightly //where kernel have support included
from Index of /
LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-9.80-nightly-20201010-45d6ccb.tar copy to /storage/.update/
and copy firmware dvb-demod-m88ds3103b to /storage/.config/firmware/
your device is probably not listed yet in linuxtv wiki version 3103B of Geniatech HD Star DVB-S2 USB2.0 - LinuxTVWiki
this group of devices from 2018 > like cinergy s2 , s4600 and some others too have already proper support in current kernel , maybe for only this one support was not merged to dw2102 or dvbsky modules
firmware version 3.B as you reports is exactly for 3103b versions so you don't need experiments with various kernel branches , install some stable kernel 5.7 or never , rpi kernel is always outdated comparing to what x86_64 Libreelec have...
for x86 install Debian 11 bullseye whith kernel 5.8.10, changes from Brad media_build firstly was merged to 5.7-rc1 but this changes was about support "3103b" chip
For ARM related support in Open Source exist :
"Lima" for mali-400 and mali-450 soc gpu's aka Utgard gpu's
"Panfrost" for both Bifrost and Midgard Mali GPU: Mali-Gxx GPU and Mali-T6xx / Mali-T7xx / Mali-T8xx GPU
LibreELEC is focused on that drivers not on ARM Corp. versions like mali- utgard,midgard,bifrost
and Ciolabora now writing panfrost code with ARM developers for upstream Linux
under this link is LibreELEC img compiled today for LibreTech LaFrite models with 512MB/1GB RAM compiled from master but with newer kernel version 5.8.10
watching livetv in h264 is possible with enabled >> ffmpeg drm prime, but disabled >> hw for prime and "Direct to plane" enabled, cpu1-4= 7-17 % for sd
hw acceleration works ok for vp9/h264(avc1) videos from yt downloaded by youtube-dl only for tvheadend raw htsp streams fails,
any suggestions why for live tv streams is not possible from tvheadend stable, what change in settings for better experience ?
Hevc to test...
Hi. I have one technical question about this problematic state of support for hardware decoding on Amlogic and other SoC platforms. If I understand correctly for proper hw decoding is needed mainly codec as library from some vendor/programist/company which have extension for hardware capabilities for platform which is bundled for running. On Amlogic for example s805x with mali-450 mesa have 3d extensions for that gpu but on desktop also have for gpu like vaapi vdpau fo radeon and intel and nvidia for hw decoding. On Soc cpu/gpu if i think about this state instruction for handling hw acceleration for codec formats should have mesa but i remember on linuxtv git v4l tree have something to do with that code, situation is even more complicated because meson build system have some layers beetwen things to get everything done if i understand this. So codec is ffmpeg or something on other layer like for example libde265 for hevc, maybe in opensource world not exist codec with implementation for every SoC and ffmpeg code base sometime have this futures. Modularity is for to get things done wery well but it this time consuming effort... Sorry for my mistakes in writing , im not native speeker
I found some possible solution for better kernel support not only for Amlogic in Libreelec , if it is possible and have some advantages over current support for kernel maybe some integration from KernelCi project in Libreelec have sense.
Hi ! I have question about unfied API for multimedia websites. In many video/audio/etc sites where content is served over internet something like unified global API for database where any desktop/mobile/embedded "end user player app" should be able to aquaire something like content index on any level where customer navigate in player for example like KODI , this API should level extensions dependend on content type on website for example if youtube wideo have section description/stats/comments this should have also menu in 2'nd level atop video to display this sections, rest of magic should be app/player dependend /read metadata/custom parsing/ai algorythms etc.
This API probably should be standard like HTMLv5 etc.. but i don't find something like this .
Maybe on Linux your box will be properly recognized with short pin method as amlogic in lsusb, for burning IMG user this tool
try to restore oryginal firmware for that box not only u-boot by preparing micro sd card with firmware from vendor, use for that Burn Card Maker v2.0.3 - FreakTab
proces is automatic, after that you can combine with other systems...
https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/21895-i…Line_110_6115d2usb_burn- Burning with amlogic format package in usb
but prepare usb with "burn card maker" not with dd comand , preparing pendrive usb or sd card with dd command it is also possible but requaire some additional steps
Linux + windows instructions how to do that here:
