    i did it like this in a ubuntu vm and it worked for me

    install everything needed to compile oscam

    sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install build-essential subversion libssl-dev libpcsclite-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev dialog pcscd

    get the latest build from the official oscam svn

    svn co oscam-svn

    configure the build with all the options i need (like smartcardreaders etc.)

    cd oscam-svn
    make config

    build it with libusb support (not sure if this is needed or a simple make does the same job...think i accidently build it once with PCSC support. libreelec doesnt have the pcsc librarys and it didnt work thats why i used this)

    make USE_LIBUSB=1

    when the build is complete

    cd Distribution/

    and there should be your new shining oscam build similar to a filename like this


    copy it to your librelec box into


    give it a test run with --help to see if it pops any errors

    disable the oscam addon in kodi for now

    rename the old oscam binary to oscamold (for backup purpose)

    rename the new oscam binary to oscam and make sure its chmod 755

    enable oscam addon in kodi


    works great for me so far.

    only thing what bothers me is when i listen to music it doesnt show the correct song play time / total length on the "now playing" screen. the time basically is just running forever...which actually is a bit annoying if you have a karaoke like lyrics addon installed. not that of a big deal though i´m not a singer anyway.. :D

    also the "next song" isn´t displaying at all.

    any way to get this running in the future or is it just not possible code wise?

    So i´ve finally upgraded from libreelec 7 to. 8.0.1 on my dedicated htpc yesterday. Wiped everything and did a fresh install.

    Everything working well so far except my Wireless Dongle (TP-Link Archer T4U AC1200 V1.0).

    It keeps disconnecting from my 5ghz network from time to time and won´t reconnect. If i try to reconnect manually in Kodi it just gives me an Input/Output Error.
    Only rebooting or replugging the Device helps until it disconnects again in like 10mins or so.

    Don´t know whats going on, performance was meh but worked on libreelec 7 for me.


    (Disconnecting the Device in the log is me unplugging it...)

    Any help would be gladly appreciated.


    im trying to get a ASUS AC54 AC1300 USB Wifi Dongle running on my dedicated HTPC running Libreelec. Couldnt find any Info on this particular Dongle and which Modules to load. Any Help?
