    TomHardy1975 if you dont need the CEC you can disable it in the config... that might prevent your tv remote from turning on your RP

    use a computer to edit the config.txt file or if you have ssh set up on your RP you can use the below to mount and edit the file. try that and see if it solves your issue.

    mount -o remount,rw /flash

    cd /flash

    vi confg.txt

    NOTE: in vi to edit you use the "i" key then you can edit then use "esc" to exit edit mode and then ":wq" to save and exit. or use the text editor you are used to using.

    # Force HDMI even if unplugged or powered off


    # Doesn't sent initial active source message.

    # Avoids bringing CEC (enabled TV) out of standby and channel switch when

    # rebooting.

    # hdmi_ignore_cec_init=1

    hello all, just got my new 4gb Raspberry PI4 in to day. loaded it up with Libreelec 9.2.5 and all updates. i then started playing around with the config.txt file as i have a notes from setting up my Raspberry PI3. the issue is when i adjust the GPU ram past 640MB the video output cuts out after reboot, just a black screen the TV knows somethings there but its just a black screen. i will see the Raspberry PI splash then nothing. i can still ssh into the pi, configure and reboot as need. i did try and kill -9 the kodi.bin to see if it was just a crash at boot but no luck. not sure if its a bug or if anyone else has had the same issue. i did started at 512MB and walked it up by 128MB each time, 640MB works however, 768MB+ will produce the no video output issue.

    let me know if anyone else has this issue kind of curious on it.

    Raspberry PI4 4GB model

    CPU - Broadcom BCM2711B0 quad-core A72 (ARMv8-A) 64-bit @ 1.5GHz.

    GPU - Broadcom VideoCore VI

    With the launch of the new Raspberry Pi 4 - 8gb model i was wondering if there was going to be a 64bit version of LibreELEC? not a big deal if not i just, cant wait to get my hands on one and start testing and playing with it.


    Thank you so much. worked like a charm. the only problem i had with is is this

    docker pullnetdata/netdata:latest-armhf

    just missed the space, 5 seconds in the man page for docker and i found the issue. thanks again for your help. if anyone else is wanting to do this below is the edited line.

    docker pull netdata/netdata:latest-armhf

    Hello all, I was wondering how hard it would be to install Netdata for the Raspberry Pi. Netdata can monitor lots of systems from a web browser witch i think would be useful for trouble shooting issues. I have tried some of the ways listed on the gethub page with no luck. I'm new to Linux but trying to learn, any help would be greatly greatly appreciated.

    GitHub - netdata/netdata: Real-time performance monitoring, done right!

    I am using the last version (LibreELEC (Krypton) v7.90.010 ALPHA ). I was tested also with 0 but nothing changes. I will run more tests tomorrow.

    oh the good old alpha. yes i am having the same issues as you are. still not quite sure as to why kodi is not reading the AVconfig file. i can post screen shots of nmon running later tonight to show that it is not using any more ram than stock. i have set it to 0 and 10 GB to get it to show any signs of reading the file and as far as i can tell its not. i am still using the stable version on the one in my living room and it is using the above config and works find ( i will get the version tonight ) so i know its not a formatting error. could be something to do with compiling
    thanks to  gwilly7 and some googling i was able to find the link. im testing it as soon as i get home. hope this helps @<OP>

    what version of libreelec are you using? also 157286400(bytes) is 150MB cache. (please correct me if I'm wrong) not sure the format of the config file on your system on the RasPi i have mine looking like this


    i make the file and then add in the text some times (windows) likes to add in hidden characters so i would recommend using nano or vi to check on your device.

    i have had the same problem.. try this



    ssh into your openelec/libreelec using username root and password

    1. vi /storage/.config/

    add the following to the file

    (sleep 30; \
    /usr/sbin/ntpdate; \

    save and exit
    change execute permissions

    chmod +x /storage/.config/

    then reboot your RasPi and it should be good to go

    Thank you all for your help i really want to give a shout out to awiouy and escalade. you guys really do rock. i have not tested this as of yet (been away for a business trip). i am very excited to test this when my plan lands. again thank you all for your help, wisdom, and time.


    thank you for your advice and i will look into it. x256 is somewhat ok for 720p but unplayable in 1080. as it was mentioned it is software driven and i have been using TOP to see the system when playing x256 in 1080 to find what, and how i can make small improvements for it. TOP is ok but i would like to see more system information. the Alpha build (17 i think) is better. i think there needs to be a 64bit version to make it a little bit better. i have done some adjusting with the "advancedconfig.xml" file just to play with how videos load over the network.

    Hello, im new to this form and have been using LibreELEC on my raspberry pi 3 for 4 months now and i really love it. i made the switch form openELEC before.

    I did not know where to post this or even if its in the right place. just looking for some help with it. i would like to use the nmon to see system usages. especiallyi when i am testing the Alpha builds, and stressing out the system with x265. i have been foiled at every attempt to install it on my raspberry pi. if anyone could help me or point me in a direction i would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you
