Not in general settings, but settings which can be opened during video playback.
I see! Does this setting correspond to every single video playback? I see I have to disable it on every channel separately. And when I disable this, there seems to be no issues really! Thanks for your help, Jernej!
However, please check if disabling deinterlacing helps in any way. Check in settings menu, right from pause, stop, rewind buttons.
Sorry Jernej, but I can't find it! Which settings menu should I search? I've got "System", "LE", "Player", "PVR"...
Hi Jernej! I confirm I have those issues described in my previous message: RE: Nightly images for A64, H3, H5, H6 and R40 boards
Please remind me how can I grab those log files from hidden Linux folders? I use Putty for Windows and SSH. Or I can use my Ubuntu if needed. Sorry but I used Linux commands some time ago and forgot them, unfortunately. 😞 I could get in hidden folder (ls -a) but I couldn't copy those files to my PC through SSH.
How often freeze happens? Same amount as image corruptions before?
Hi Jernej! I have found out that today a problem with my IPTV provider appeared. I have changed to another CDN server and now there is no buffering on my Kodi and Samsung smart TV.
Now, how does Kodi behave after your update. It has almost no image corruption. It appears only when I scroll channels list fast (while video play back is at the background) and for very long time (````approximately one minute) and there is very little corruption that disappears as soon as I stop scrolling. Also the sound started to lag a little during scroll. It is much-much better then it was before!!!
But when I close menu the image sometimes stops, or sometimes starts to lag. Stop and play channel solves this but not always and not for all channels! And another strange problem occurs after this. When I press to play any other channel there is a very big delay (about 30-40 seconds) before it turns on. The reboot solves that. I can say I should definitely reboot after this issue, otherwise there are present issues mentioned above (video lag, and/or long time channel switch). I would provide you a link with log files soon. Just want to replicate it some more times to give you true description.
Many thanks for your kind support!!!
Hi Jernej! I have just tested your update few times!
Now here is no image corruption, but the images freezes (with running sound). Stop and play channel solves it. The second time I had frozen not only image but the whole Kodi that had self rebooted after a while.
It's first time I see this kind of error. But then again, CEC behaves differently on different devices. I have experience only with my LG B8 TV, where CEC behaves normal. Just experiment...
Yes, Jernej, it's sad 😞, because I have Pioneer Blu-ray player that works perfectly with my Pioneer plasma TV. HDMI CEC (KURO link) works as it should: Blu-ray player powers up TV and TV turns off player.
But I have to disable HDMI control in TV now, because I've got problems with Orange Pi then (start up with no image as I said above) even though it's on 3rd input, while Blu-ray player is on 4th...
The only difference between my test image and nightly from that day are just two lines of debug output. You can treat them same. Clean install is recommended every now and then, when bootloader is updated.
OK, thanks, Jernej! I have one more question. I see there are settings for buttons repeat time in CEC adaptor. Should they be set to the corresponding brand's TV remote model, or not? I am just trying to figure out why I have problems with CEC on my old Pioneer Kuro plasma TV. I've got multiple CEC100 errors when CEC adaptor (in Kodi) and HDMI control (in TV) are enabled (see the attachment).
The only way to eliminate these errors is to disable CEC adaptor in Kodi. But I've got a black screen (no image) if Kodi was started while the TV has been set to any other input before. And the Kodi is workable at this moments (hear GUI control sounds). The reboot from Kodi remote app makes the board to start showing image again after such issue...
I see, Jernej! Thanks for your time and support! Please explain wether I can continue to install nightly updates on that image you made with some output, or should I better format and do a clean install?
Understood. I don't know weather it can help, but as I mentioned above this thing appear when I start to scroll the channels list fast while the video playback is at the background, first I notice some lags and then even this image corruption appears. If I scroll channels list easily (one by one, or only 3-5 channels) this doesn't happen.
In other words it's very like as the hardware is not capable to hold that stress load during such moments...
Jernej, I have installed your update, turned on debug logging and run dmesg through SSH, but I've got only multiple strings like these:

Have I done something wrong?
Can you confirm that streams use H264 codec (press "o" during playback)? If it possible, try seeking for few seconds back or forward. I have one H264 sample with broken frame which cause similar issue and picture is fixed only when seeking back or forward...
Thanks for your feedback, Jernej! Yes, I confirm all of my IPTV channels (HD, FHD, HD orig) use H264 codec. I have just checked that (pressed "i" that turns on info panel). Interesting thing is that seeking back, or forward causes this issue instead of being fixed! The video starts to either lag, or to produce corrupted image (as above). The solve method is to stop playing and then turn this channel on again. If this doesn't help, the reboot is the only way...
Hi Jernej! I have formatted the SD card and installed fresh LibreELEC-H3.arm-10.0-nightly-20210412-142b163-orangepi-plus2e.img and latest PVR Simple client v.188.8.131.52 from repo as you suggested. Even though the performance (menu navigating) became even better, the bug still persists. 😢
Again I can replicate it easily. I have to start playing any HD orig channel and then turn on GUI menu and start navigating in it fast (while the channel's video playback is at the background). The best way to cause this issue is to just start scrolling the channels list up, or down.
First it cause's video playback image corruption (see attachment) then, when I stop the channel and then I turn on any HD (even not orig) channel the video playback would lag. Only reboot would restore playback to normal.
What do you mean without compression? I can't imagine uncompressed full HD - bitrate would be enormous.
I have chatted with my IPTV provider support and they say these HD orig channels are really without compression. If you need minimum 3-5 Mbits connection for usual HD (25-30 FPS) and FHD (50 FPS) channels, for HD orig you need about 20-30 Mbits. I have stable 51 Mbits connection. May I send you a generated link again with pastekodi after I have reinstalled the Kodi? Perhaps, you can find there new key for solution? Or maybe I have to try how it works from eMMC? But I remember my board worked worse on eMMC, rather then from SD card...
Many thanks for your support!
Note that repo might have a slightly older versions of addons. iptv.simple was recently updated, so even if it is in repo, check version and compare it to that from nightly image download page.
I have compared it and current versions on the nightly image download page and in repo are both 184.108.40.206. So, should the current nightly image LibreELEC-H3.arm-10.0-nightly-20210412-142b163-orangepi-plus2e.img see it in repo? I can see it my current system...
Thanks again! Hope it would be even possible to just install it from repository after fresh install of nightly image. 😊
P.S. You have provided me a link with compile guide once (https://wiki.libreelec.tv/compile) but it doesn't work any more. Could you resent me the current link, please?
Got it! Many thanks, I would try to reinstall with new nightly image. Oh, and are those PVR Simple clients suitable for Plus 2E that are in
Images and updates on the first page? Or should I build (compile) my own PVR client as it was earlier? I see there are ARMv7 and ARMv8 PVR addons. Would they suit my board?
Jernej, just want to clarify that you are talking about files that are on my SD card. Because I have a very old image installed on my EMMC (Kodi 16) but the new Kodi 19 with nightly updates is located on my SD card.
Jernej, I have sent you a PM with URL. I suppose I've read on my IPTV forum that HD orig channels are streamed with no compression (aka original quality), but may be I am wrong. I can ask them to say more detailed about these channels...
