Version 20221130. Kernel 6.0.10
Hi! can somebody help me? which image should I choose for my h96max rk3318 box?
These versions are not intended for RK3318.
I'm trying to get LE working on a Quartz64b. Any suggestions on where to start?
The Qurtz64B version requires other bootloader and DTB versions. I don't have this model, I don't create images for it.
In general it would be ok for broadcast, but using s/w decoding is not why I buy nextgen boxes
The difference between "old" equipment and "new" is the ability not to think about which mode the SW or HW device is used in. The main thing on the screen is the same result. It is impossible to use SW mode for "old" equipment, it can provide high-quality playback only in HW mode.
I am happy to test the new version. Currently I am using an older Armbian build on SD card and it quite good on Quartz64a so I like to keep the two separate but usable, and I haven't worked out which I prefer.
install on eMMC the system that you use more often. And run other systems from an SD card or USB flash drive. Personally, I prefer to have the Armbian system on eMMC (it allows you to watch 1080p videos in full screen, including directly in the browser). And run LE from a USB flash drive (for those cases when you need a simple home theater)
I hope you can get an Rock5 B one day.
I have a RockB5, but for LE I prefer finished devices that are ready for use by ordinary users right away - Station M1\P1\M2\P2\M3, it's much easier and more convenient. For me, the perfect device for Station P1 pro

is it possible to force s/w decoding of only specific formats?
If you use content no higher than full hd or 1440 x 1080, you can switch to SW altogether, there are enough chip capabilities.
Version 20221108. Kernel 6.0.7 fixed the installation on eMMC and the update works through the tar archive (tested on Quartz64).
mpeg2video but the one that only has audio and flickering video is SD
I checked your video. To play in EGL mode + OSD menu, simply disable hardware decoding (the line in the settings above the OSD.using EGL\DRM). Video of this format is easily processed in SW mode (the performance of the chip is quite enough for Full HD).
The question about the emmc install was about the stability. Each of your builds has a new OS and new Kodi which is fine. In the past I have had trouble with the bootloader changing so I couldn't just put the current tar file in .update. Is that now possible? I am reluctant to do this because the emmc stops works and I have to then flash Armbian to SD, write to emmc then load LE then copy LE to emmc.
The problem is not the update, it's a problem with the latest kernel (does not work with eMMC).
Is mpeg2 video supposed to play in EGL mode?
Menu overlay on video works only in EGL mode. I don't understand the question about mpeg-2, show a link to a video of this format for testing.
Also is there going to be a static OS build allowing easier LE installs to emmc?
Describe it in more detail, I don't understand the question.
I checked with myself, the installation and updating of eMMC work without problems. Show the UART output when the system does not start after the update.

Is there a special version of Armbian I need to install before running this? I can get Armbian booting off emmc fine but when I install LE to this same emmc it will not boot. It seems to be looking fro uefi?
I did a full test. Downloaded the latest version of ArmbianArmbian_22.11.0-trunk_Quartz64a_jammy_edge_6.0.0_xfce_desktop.img.xzПосмотреть и скачать с Яндекс.Дискаdisk.yandex.ru

and recorded it on a USB flash drive, run and installed LE on eMMC. I started LE with eMMC and performed the setup, everything works without problems.
Which eMMC module and power supply do you use ? How do you install Armbian ?
Version 20220906 kernel 6.0-rc4.
Fixed installation\update in eMMC for kernel 6.0 and added the function of installing mac via extlinux.conf
Version 20220831 using kernel 6.0-rc3.
I do have the mac=... showing in /proc/cmdline
Try the latest version, the mac= installation function should work in it via the command line in extlinux.conf
I have a few rk3188 boxes (cs918) that I'd like to run LE on, but LE kernel panics about 1 sec after starting kernel.
I have suspended work with rk3188\rk3288 for now, there is not enough time, so I can't help you with anything.
force a persistent MAC address:
it is enough to add to these steps "from_cmdline" a check for the presence of mac= in the command line, this will work for all platforms.LibreELEC.tv/ethmactool-config at master · LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tvJust enough OS for KODI.

I can't get it to save a fixed IP address via LibreElec settings and can't set the mac (or ethaddr) in extlinux.conf
Try creating file /storage/.config/udev.rules.d/99-fix-mac.rules with the following content
SUBSYSTEM=="net", KERNEL=="eth0", RUN+="/sbin/ip link set dev %k address 00:14:22:c8:c8:37"
Yes those are what I have been using use but they just say Armbian not ArmbianTV on the filenames. Maybe you use the term interchangeably?
Are you sure you have a Quartz64 model ? Which eMMC module do you use ? Run Armbian and show the output of the "fdisk -l" command. Try to completely erase eMMC from Armbian (with the dd command) and perform the entire installation procedure from the beginning (installing Armbian, and then installing LE).
