    yes, also 18.04 LTS made no problems, since 18.10 with kernel 4.18 we had this problems. but with 4.19.2 (4.19.0 and 4.19.1 are not working) all seems to be ok ...

    I keep my home servet on 16.04 since it is working perfectly, no need for any upgrade. So I don't know 18.04, but I saw the kernel version and than I postponed the test and migration.

    On LE I have family members with Rpi all in one solutions, there I wait for this update.

    Hello gurabli!

    I have updated to LE 8.9 too and having issues ("poll timeout") with my S960 ever since. To which version did you downgrade? How did you downgrade? Did you get it working? Thanks!


    sorry, but actually I didn't manage to resolve this at all. For a very long time S960 doesn't work with LE, and once a long standing issue is fixed, a new one is introduced :( I'm also waiting if there would be a solution for this in near future. However, based on the past few months/years, I would look for another combination. For example, running several DVBSky cards in my home media server (Ubuntu Server 16.04), it works like a charm for years, not a single error. And running Debian on RPi also works fine. If you don't have high demands, you can run an RPi2/3 with a Debian base for DVBSky S960 and configure TVHeadend server there. Be prepared that Rpi is awful for LAN and USB, but single DVB-S2 works fine (tested). Should you need more tuners, go for a stronger rig than RPi.

    Would be nice if RPi2/3 with LE8/9 + DVBSky USB would work reliable, as that would mean a cheap, simple, low-power combination for Kodi and Live TV.

    Take a look at Odroid C2 and Wetek Play2 devices (later is hard to find).

    yes they are now at the image

    The S960 has still an unresolved problem, no patches are there yet. So if you can stay at something with Kernel 4.8 or older.

    Thanks. Tried the new drivers, but s960 doesn't work with them, only default LE.

    Which version of LE should I revert back until this is resolved? The latest with kernel 4.8 or maybe a custom build that has older kernel?


    Excellent, will test and report back. I am really busy now, but will do my best.

    Do you plan to release a version for LE 8.2.5? Would be great. Or at least to support that branch if a fix is required.

    Many thanks, sounds great!

    Testing on CoreElec Odroid C2 started.

    EDIT: btw, are there any differences in terms of quality in using Kodi vs ALSA mode?

    hi chewitt

    I get a build error on bzip2. Any idea what can I do?

    I updated the of bzip2 as per this: Link Still, it fails. Do you know maybe what else do I need to change?

    EDIT: I managed to fix the build issue with some trial and error.

    Yes, dual-audio patch is horrible, I remember many conversations about it back few years ago. But it works for many years:) I won't ask for support regarding dual-audio, like you said, if it works, then works, if not, I won't use it.

    There is a built version with dual audio patch for 8.2.5 fully working, just not with nvidia legacy drivers. So I wan't to build a version with dual-audio and nvidia legacy drivers. I'm building it right now, will see if the cherry-pick will resolve the build fail because of bzip2 url.

    Will report back for sure.

    Thnk you!

    So if I understand correctly, the way I do it is fine for 8.2.5, plus the bzip2 fix with the cherry-pick line you said.

    This will keep me to the 8.2.5 branch with fix to bzip2, but will not pull the changes added to xorg and mesa that will not work with 304 drivers?

    Did I put the Dual Audio patch at correct location?



    I still use a super Asus board with nVidia ION, and the system needs dual audio support. I know dual audio support is not a great way to go, but it works. Since I both need legacy nVidia drivers AND Dual Audio patch, I will need to compile my own LE 8.2.5. This is the first time I do this, therefore your help would be so much appreciated.

    What I do:

    1. I Forked LE at github.

    2. I modified the nVidia Legacy driver with adding a commit.

    3. Downloaded the patch for Dual Audio from here: Patch

    4. I cloned my fork, changed to 8.2.5, and to the nVidia legacy commit:

    1. git clone
    2. cd ~/
    3. git checkout 8.2.5
    4. git checkout 0d3857e0d755d2f571760b3213c40a3858663a2b

    5. I copied the downloaded Dual Audio patch to: /packages/mediacenter/kodi/patches/

    6. I start to compile:

    1. PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64
    2. PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 tools/download-tool
    3. PROJECT=Generic ARCH=x86_64 IMAGE_SUFFIX=gurabli_nvidia_legacy_dualaudio make image

    Is this the correct way to do this?

    Your help is very much appreciated! I'm on Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS.
