    Pi devices have no RTC chip so on boot before NTP has updated the clock the time will start from the release date of the current version of glibc which probably dates from a release in April. Once the network is up NTP updates the clock and dateTime changes.


    How are you running MariaDB? .. it doesn't look like the DB is up/running before Kodi attempts to access it.

    You realise that on anything with 1GB+ RAM we already load the entire OS into RAM? .. and the amount of read/write generated by Kodi on /storage is not particularly high - not high enough to make those solutions worth chasing.

    systemctl stop kodi

    nano /storage/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml

    find and edit videoscreen.screenmode to contain <setting id="videoscreen.screenmode">0192001080060.00000pstd</setting>

    find and remove any content in videoscreen.whitelist, e.g. should look like <setting id="videoscreen.whitelist"></setting>

    save and exit

    reboot


    As long as the device presents [email protected] modes, it should now be the desktop resolution. This should all be selectable in the GUI anyway.. but without debug logs and such there's no way to guess why not.

    RPi4 requires GBM/MMAL code paths in Kodi, and while MMAL exists in the Kodi v17 codebase the GBM bits do not, so it is not (and is unlikely to ever be) possible to run Kodi v17 on an RPi4 board. There is sub-zero official (LE, Kodi or Pi Foundation) interest in exploring that direction. It's not impossible to backport .. but that depends on your personal coding and distro packaging skils?


    NB: In LE the base OS, dependencies and Kodi are tightly coupled. You cannot update Kodi without updating the base OS at the same time, and you cannot just swap Kodi versions in/out as you like.

    LE supports a single GPU being used, and if you have multiple devices the one used is determined through udev, see:


    LibreELEC.tv/97-xorg.rules at master · LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub


    ^ the i915 device will be detected first, the amdgpu or radeon drivers are later. The simplest option to prevent i915 from being used is to blacklist the kernel module so it's not loaded at boot, e.g.


    Code
    1. echo "blacklist i915" > /storage/.config/modprobe.d/i915.conf


    This will prevent udev seeing the node from the driver and it should find the AMD card instead.


    NB: the above assumes i915 is the module name. It's about 10-years since I booted LE on anything with an Intel GPU so check it's right first.

    Not being able to use the original hardware version with Apple PSUs isn't really a big obstacle. All the cheap(er) PSUs/cables that are advertised for RPi4 use will be fine with it - and the Pi Foundation already started shipping revised hardware that fixes the problem a couple of months ago (released silently to avoid inventory issues) so if you're buying from one of the tier one resellers it's unlikely you'll receive the old version now. RPi4 firmware already started to drop temperatures a little by adding power efficiency - but the gains from that direction will be small and will come slowly over time. Some kind of cooling is mandatory - and for an HTPC use-case the best thing to do is get a case that acts as a heatsink. I'm using the Kodi flirc case and the device runs around 50ºC in a closed and poorly ventilated space. It would be niceer if it ran at 35ºC .. but it's not running at 75ºC like it was in bare-board state in the week after launch. The flirc case is a nice looking case too.

    Hello, could you provide the source data to building the 9082xs.ko kernel module for Ubuntu (Debian)?

    The company that released the module will only provide a pre-built module. We assume this is because a) they ripped off someone else's chip design and sharing the source code will make that rather obvious, b) the source code reveals the chip is crap, c) a + b .. so no sources exist.
