    I have been away and missed the last few updates but I just tried to update the emmc to the latest version using the latest file in .update and the update failed with the missing /dtb/rockchip/rk3566-quartz64-a.dtb among other things. So I guess the emmc install isn't very useful with these pre release kernel builds.

    Continuing on, since my emmc is no longer usable I installed the new image to SD card but it still doesn't take the mac= parameter The udev rule approach you suggested was working from the emmc.


    I copied the update to .update but this broke the emmc installation

    Code
    Retrieving file: /dtb/rockchip/rk3566-quartz64-a.dtb
    ** Unable to read file /dtb/rockchip/rk3566-quartz64-a.dtb **
    Skipping LibreELEC for failure retrieving FDT
    SCRIPT FAILED: continuing...
    libfdt fdt_check_header(): FDT_ERR_BADMAGIC

    I mounted the emmc and noticed there was only a dtb_old folder so I copied dtb folder from the image, but it still doesn't boot. It says could not mount Label=LE_EMMC

    Yes I am sure. I tried several times and it failed, so ended up using another emmc and it boots fine from it now. 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


    I am not sure what you mean by ArmbianTV but I installed one of the Armbian desktops I had made sure it worked ok, then run the LE setup to emmc and I guess it finishes since it goes to black screen. It did something because desktop no longer starts but neither does LE, the boot hangs with the pxeboot.


    It has U-Boot SPL 2022.04-armbian (Jul 07 2022 - 08:50:57 +0300) and log is here

    I just burn to emmc with Etcher since installtoemmc.sh doesn't work.


    Turning on EGL rendering gave me the OSD thanks.


    When I say no MAC address, I need to use a fixed IP since every time LE boots it has an new MAC and my DHCP server gives a new IP address.

    ver 20220819 kernel 5.19.1

    Thanks for the test builds. I installed this Quartz64a build and it easily passes my test of hosting a pvr server and allowing Kodi to play live TV on the host and stream to another box, while recording a third show, with lots to spare (writing to SD)


    However some that things continue to be a problem


    - emmc installs complain that LIBRELEC is not mounted. SD card installs work fine.

    - there is no OSD over video.

    - no MAC address
