    I have the same issue running the generic x86 build on a intel i3 Shuttle machine.

    Change the video calibration once machine is rebooted/powered off and booted back into LibreELEC the video calibration is reverted.

    chewitt I have enabled debugging logging and restarted re-created the issue and uploaded the logs to as suggested a couple of post above, Here is the URL

    Hope this helps.


    I solved the issue myself, I purchased an Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160 M2 card for both machines from Amazon and the wireless has been perfect.

    On the Shuttle website it shows that these two models WLN-P & WLN-S are the only wireless cards supported for the XH97V and XH81V but that's not true.

    I thought I'd update this post for other shuttle users if there having the same issues. At the end of the day Realtek drivers for Linux Sucks!

    Please mark this post as solved.

    Thanks to everyone that tried to help.

    Hi All,

    Just to let you know I went ahead an purchased an 8TB. I used gparted live ISO on a usb stick to boot to the gparted software. Created the new GPT Primary partition and formatted the drive with EXT4. Labelled the partition and applied changes. Everything works as expected. Although I lost nearly 1TB once formatting as you lose a bit anyway.

    Just thought I'd update the post just in case someone else is thinking about doing this.

    Hiya here is the URL as requested YdCN
    Thanks for having a look

    Ethernet cable connects, even when using Realtek nic's, should be far more stable that any wifi connection.

    The question for me is: if Kodi 15.2 was/is working fine, why upgrade now? ("If it isn't broken, don't fix it").

    I know it would be more stable than wifi

    I upgraded as I thought OE was dead and everyone was moving over to LibreELEC. I wanted to upgrade to the latest where the skins have change etc but I do get where your coming from though. Don't really want to go back to OE if I don't have to. I will try the nightly build you suggested once you've had a look at the pastebin URL

    Appreciate your help.

    Thanks for the reply, I have the setting "Wait for Network" enable even if set to 60 secs sometime it still doesn't connect and a couple of reboots and then it will connect but for how long is different each time. The Ethernet port on the back of the machine is also Realtek 8111G X1 so I expect I have issues with that as well. Thanks for the link to provide logs I shall do that later today and share it with you.

    Thanks for you help

    Thanks for your reply, its defiantly stable with OE with Kodi 15.2, I can go back to that and make sure and maybe then upgrade to OE 16.1 and see if it changes. I was running OE 15.2 for a long time as I was waiting to see when they where to release 16.1 but then realised most of the Devs had gone and created LE so I moved over.

    Both machine have DHCP client reservations and I've checked the Wi-Fi and our Wi-Fi is the only one on channel 11 for 2.4GhZ and our Virgin media router doesn't support 5Ghz. One machine is -50dBm and the other is -69dBm so I know its not the signal strength. I've also tested one of the machines at a friends house to rule out the Wi-Fi and it did the same there.

    I'll try the test build as well as see if that makes any difference.


    Hi There

    I have two Shuttle machines both have different Realtek wireless cards. However the wireless cards keeps losing/dropping off the network. Both machines are in different locations in the house one is in the same room as the router and the other is upstairs. When they drop of the network (at different times) other wireless devices are fine like laptops, phones etc So I know its not the Wi-Fi itself.

    One machine is a Shuttle XH97v

    Shuttle Global - XH97V

    wireless card is WLN-P - WLAN-ac / Bluetooth Combo Kit (Mini PCI-Express type)

    Shuttle Global - WLN-P

    Driver is here - WLAN_Realtek_8821AE
    Shuttle Global - WLN-P

    The other is a Shuttle XH81V
    Shuttle Global - XH81V/XH81

    Wireless card is WLN-S - WLAN Kit for Shuttle Slim PC
    Shuttle Global - WLN-S

    Driver here - Wireless_Realtek_RTL8192CE
    Shuttle Global - WLN-S

    Both machines have intel i3 4130T with 4 GB of Ram

    We were running Openelec with 15.2 version of Kodi which the wireless was stable without dropping out everything worked perfectly. Once you all left OpenElec created LibreELEC I upgraded both machines and it became unstable. Now that the new version is out (LibreELEC Krypton v8.0.1 MR) I was hoping this might get fix but I'm still having issues with it. I don't really want to go back to OpenElec. I found if I reboot the machine a few times it will re-connect. I use Yatse as my remote for my machine on my phone and I can be half way through watching something and then the machine loses it connection and I then can't control the machine unless I plug a mouse into it to reboot it which can be frustrating at times.

    How do I provide with logs etc to prove there is a problem with the drivers built into LibreELEC?

    Happy to try what you need me to do to resolve this.

    Kind Regards

    Bigger file sizes are not the problem. According to the EXT4 wiki page:

    The bigger problem IMO could be the USB controller of your external harddisk enclosure. Full compatibility with Linux should be okay with a good brand disk enclosure, but... there is always that small chance.

    Thanks for replying. The HDD is going to be internal. I'm running a Shuttle XH81V (specs on the link below)
    Shuttle United Kingdom - XH81V/XH81
    Just wanted to make sure the HDD will be alright before purchasing it.

    Hi All,

    I'm looking to buy an 8TB 2.5 HDD for my media player which has LibreElec installed on. I currently have a 2TB drive which has all my media on it and I'm pretty much out of space on. What I would like to know is if I buy an 8TB Drive and create a EXT4 partition, can I have 1 partition with the whole 8TB (not that i'll get the full 8TB).

    I know EXT4 will support it but I've not created a Partition bigger than 2TB before using EXT4. I assuming I can use gparted to create the partition and I know it will probably need to be UEFI however this drive is just for storage and not a boot partition.

    I have a 30GB msata installed on my motherboard which is the boot partition with LibreElec installed on.

    Can some clarify that I can do this before I go an blow £200+ on a bigger HDD

    Thanks in advance


    Just a suggestion which is really just cosmetic and personal preference. When shutting down LibreElec on the generic x86 build you see a load of services/processes being closed/shutdown. Is it worth having a splash screen of the LibreElec logo or something to hide theses processes being closed/shutdown?

    I get a big list run down the side of the TV until my HTPC turns off, I think it would look better with something that would hide those unless you think its helpful to see those processes on shutdown for problem shooting.

    What do you think?

    Hi All,

    Would libreElec work on a MyGica ATV 1200/3200? I'm currently using Ember as it was the only Linux OS i could use instead of the Android OS on the device however it doesn't pick up the internal HDD. I'd rather use a Linux OS as the Android OS is too bloaty and uses a lot of memeory/CPU before even using Kodi. I wondered if LibreElec would work on this device. I believe its a g02ref/STVMX

    This is the spec

    • ARM CORTEX A9 x 2 Dual Core CPU, frequency 1.5GHz
    • 1GB RAM, 8GB Flash NAND memory
    • Bulit in 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi with External Extended Range Antenna
    • USB interface, supports mobile HDD, supports mouse and keyboard operation
    • HDMI Supports 1080i and 1080p Video Playback
    • Supports SD card up to 32GB and 4 USB ports

    Many Thanks in Advance
