- ARM devices like the RPi's and ODROID's cannot supply enough power from USB ports to run HDD's and other power hungry USB attachments reliably. You need a powered USB Hub. These are not Intel boxes you are using.

- Frequent Reset issues are usually caused by inadequate power supplies, or poor quality, thin USB to mini USB (otg) power cords.
sad to hear that :(. How do AML devices tell a TV the difference between 1080p, 720p and 24hz 25hz and so on to switch to the appropriate framerate automatically? Is there anybody who is involved in LibreELEC/Odroid delepoment who is in charge for this kind of questions? I would also be willing to donate something for this -_-
Considering this device uses the HDMI 2.0 spec and CEC is a possibility, I believe it should be possible to signal the TV to switch the 3D mode and it would be just a matter of code/software.

My Pi2s are running Kodi 16.1 Git:c327c53). Platform: Linux ARM 32-bit

The only changes are the latest test 3D.MVC.ISO version that changed MySQL configuration from advancedsettings.xml and brought it into the Kodi GUI (found under Settings > System > Services). That is why its a test version.
I'm not using the 3D.MVI.ISO version. I've deleted the dbases and added the sources again in Kodi. No problems so far so maybe it just needed clean install.
As for Heat, you will need to pull back the CPU/GPU Governor back a bit
Done, I've not seen the rebooting issue again.

Regarding 3D autoswitch:

Koying made that work somehow for Amlogic devices back in 2014

http://spmc.semperpax.com/
13.3.1 (2014/08/06):
  • Rebased to latest XBMC 13.2
  • Add suspend on rooted devices (thanks to @elmerohueso)
  • Possible fix for recurrent startup crash
  • Switch TV to 3D automatically on amlogic
  • Allow mouse long left click to bring up context menu
hmm...unfortunately I can't find any way to contact him. His github does not have any contact data or so :(

I found him on twitter(https://twitter.com/koying). I will contact him see what he says, maybe he can contribute/donate the code.

Wow perfect! That was fast! Thank you very very much koying :)

As wrxtasy stated already that he has no interest in investing time for this, I hope this at least doesn't get lost somehow. wrxtasy, If you will have some time in the future i'd appreciate if you could have a look at this. Meanwhile I think I'm not the only one who understands, that you have a lot other stuff on your to-do-list :) For us it's mostly the hope seeing this in the future that matters :) . What about donation possibilities for you guys? Any plans about providing paypal contacts or so to reward your awesome work? And I don't just mean the 3D stuff... I am absolutely amazed by DTS-HD also and the whole Odroid C2 work done so far!

Thanks Koying.
Already have that patch in the 3D LE, but a few bits need changing to de-Androidify it, that I have forgotten. ;)
Plus I have to correct 0666 RW in ppmgr_drv.c in the Kernel.

Thank you very much for this build, I really appreciate the fine work that has been done here. LibreElec works really fast on my C2.

I want to report about a disturbing behavior that my C2 suffers: when I switch of my TV the C2 sort of turn off the HDMI as well. If I turn on the TV again there is no signal coming in from the C2, I have to unplug/plug the HMDI cable from the TV to see the C2 screen again. Does anybody have the same problem ?

best regards
Pepe

just in case, some DMESG stuff .... from TV on to TV off to TV on againg

I want to report about a disturbing behavior that my C2 suffers: when I switch of my TV the C2 sort of switch the HDMI as well. If I turn on the TV again there is no signal coming in from the C2, I have to unplug/plug the HMDI cable from the TV to see the C2 screen again. Does anybody have the same problem ?

@wrxtasy I noticed a few issues with the newest build of LibreELEC.

1. Some talked about that pixel in the left top corner, I get this as well. It wouldn't bother me as I'm at UHD resolution, and the only reason I noticed is because of my local dimming on the Television. Since my TV uses local dimming, the pixel illuminates the LED edge lighting and there is always a band of light on the very left side of my Television after this pixel appears.

2. Globally the audio is about 150ms ahead. I fixed this by going in to a TV show and delaying the audio by about 150 and applied it to all.

3. The SQL section in Settings does not reapply after reboot. I have to go into the menu, disable and enable again then all my content is visible again.

Anyone else have experienced #2,#3 as problem?

I have #1 and #2. I also have an issue where a video will often begin playback at around the 7 second mark (the video skips the first 7 seconds or fast forwards/sputters forward 7 seconds into the video as if it were catching up or syncing with the audio or something. Not sure what the root cause would be. Seems like short videos that are 15 or 30 seconds are mostly OK, but any video that is a couple minutes or longer is not.

Thats correct.
@wrxtasy: HK merged 2 of my 4 commits you included to fix jurands issues. Apperently I had to revert 2 commits because they caused trouble on LG TVs. But the "auto switchback" issue is fixed and the other issue jurand reported (cec going deaf) wasnt fixed with the reverted commits anyway.

Can't figure out why xvid playback (which is 90% of my films) drops many frames, irrespective of the video fps.
H264/h265 is OK.
I use audio pass through to an external decoder.
Any hints?

Try re-encoding your DVDs and Blu-rays using H264/H265, you'll have smaller file sizes and better quality. The XVID format is antiquated.

Could be your network, and it might be buffering on larger files.
Is your network Gigabit Ethernet?

Not using network, using attached USB HDD. Even videos directly from the eMMC have the same issue. Buffering makes no difference unfortunately.

I don't illegally download movies for my library so I can't comment any further on the status of XVID support.

H264/h265 is OK.
I use audio pass through to an external decoder.
Any hints?
Xvid = MPEG4:
Settings > Video > Acceleration > Accelerate MPEG4 > Always

The files are very likely not even encoded correctly in the first place, especially if they are torrents.
If that does not work sell the C2 and get an Intel Box, plently will buy the C2 ;)

@MidnightWatcher,
Settings > Video > Playback > Pause during refresh rate change > increase the time...

Cannot help any further for a problem I cannot reproduce, Nor see as a widespread user issue.
Personally I would backup LE and Kodi and store the .tar backup externally and them re-flash an image and restore from backup.

@Raybuntu,
Are these the only two commits needed then ?
- don't init node while hal_flag is set
- changed TX busy handling a little bit rewritten

@Exist2Resist,
I will direct Davilla who wrote the MySQL Kodi settings mod to your post. Looks like a bug.

Audio delays, especially once you start using passthrough are usually needed across numerous Hardware platforms. Each individuals settings are usually unique as well to suit their A/V gear. I too have noticed it occasionally and just do a Global "Save as default" once I get the delay setting correct.

@Everyone,
3D Signalling to autoswitch a TV into a 3D mode is badly broken in the C2's v3.14 Kernel. The code is incomplete and HK or AMLogic themselves will have to fix it:

I get frame drops also with video acceleration.
I don't think it's a CPU related issue, as CPU load is very low during playback
I can't think every single xvid I have is broken (I've tested many of them with the same result)
What can I do to dig into the problem?
is there any logging that could be useful?
can I activate in some way an on-the-fly transcoding with ffmpeg?
the box is terrific (thank to your fantastic work) and I really don't want to sell it, but if can't fix this bug it's a pain

@wrxtasy: Yes you can just go ahead and remove the patches for cec. HK also remove the debug flag so you shouldn't need any patches for CEC if you're using the current HK source.

I'm trying to completely disable CEC as the last resort to stopping the C2 powering off when the TV is switched off but can't find a way to do it.

I've tried using the libCEC options in peripherals but it seems to ignore both options that might be responsible for this (Devices to power off during shutdown & When the TV is switched off) as well as disabling it.

Changing the boot.ini hdmi_cec variable to 0 doesn't do it and even completely removing the cec part of the setenv bootargs doesn't seem to change anything.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

These options should work. "Ignore" for when TV is switched off option. It's currently not possible to turn of cec completly. Although you can disable libcec in kodi.

Thanks but unfortunately not. Does it work for you? I can't disable it on the TV (no option) and all HDMI ports have CEC.

3-5 more heartbeats and it appears to shutdown. I've tried it a few times and made sure I reset the C2 so it used the new settings. I've also tried to specify incorrect physical address, using 2, in the libCEC configuration but that reverts to 0 on reboot.

For a PI you can just add hdmi_ignore_cec_init=1 to the config.txt but I can see in boot.ini it's not quite that simple for the C2.

Is it worth trying to compile my own image without CEC or is it going to be a lot more painful than just removing what I don't need?

I stumbled yesterday about this code here adressing similar stuff, but as I am not a coder, I don't know whether this is just a nonworking copy and paste or a working solution:
https://github.com/150balbes/Amlogic_s9 ... pmgr_drv.c

Regarding the kernel issue: Is there a way to contact HardKernel (besides your github comment) for paying attention to this?

I think I know what the problem is @Arthritis. Try to edit your remote.xml. I guess your TV is sending the Power key as "user control keypress".

Copy the remote.xml to your user directory (~/.kodi/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml) and remove the mapping for the power key:

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/maste ... te.xml#L75

Change it from:

Code: Select all

.....
<power>ShutDown()</power>
....
to

Code: Select all

.....
<power></power>
.....
Normally you can disable libcec in the peripherals menu completly that would revert it to the AML cec keyboard mode. But that mode will send a Power key stroke too. But with the above fix in the remote.xml and libcec enabled it should work.

Genius. I've changed it to Noop (no operation) and it stays on.

I had to do the same with volume controls as that was also sending commands to the C2 as well as the TV but for some reason didn't think power was working the same way, which it obviously is.

Thanks again Raybuntu and of course wrxstasy.

@wrxtasy - Do you think that your LibreELEC build for Odroid C2 would run on this box:
http://www.xtreamer.net/mxv/ ?
It looks as the similar HW.

I've already ordered Odroid C2 but this one looks nice because it comes packaged in the box from the get-go.

I doubt that. This build is made for the C2 there are some differences in the uboot. Also be carefull with these chinese piracy boxes. As far as I can tell no one in the LE dev team is working with these ripoffs.
And you won't have any support from them either.
Do yourself a favor and wait for the "Wetek Hub" if you want a clean finished box. Wetek (and also HK) is a reliable company and they are supporting the development. Although its more expensive.

OK. Duly noted. But I would say that Xtreamer is not a cheap ripoff - usually.
Among the things they claim is that components are from South Korea which would indicate more similarity to the Odroid C2 as indicated in the "XTREAMER mxV Vs MXQ" table on the product page.
But, as you said if no one has a direct experience with it, it would be wise to wait until some verified box appears.

As far as I remembert Xtreamer had some good products some years ago, also the reputation was not so bad... but you point it out here (I'm shocked a bit now)... apparently they now just label some cheap chinese boxes or perhaps they just even sold their domain or so to some rubish company which needed a foot in europe for distribution... :/

Also, at first glance I am wondering that this boxes don't have gigabit lan.

And bear in mind:
This product will be shipped from Hong Kong.
Vat & local taxs (if applied) are not included.

Panasonic Viera 40CS650A. I bought it on special for $AUD499 just because of the picture quality, very rich colours and you can't tell black from off, as I was going to use it as a dumb screen. Got it home and to my surprise it not only has quite decent software including Netflix, excellent picture processing which even on low make SD content look better (haven't even tried the other settings) but also ethernet and a wifi component with a very decent antenna. It even very kindly tells you if it hasn't got enough power for a USB device. So happy with it that it made me glad lightning took out the HDMI port on my old TV, especially once my video card failed a few months later and Gigabyte replaced it :D

The only negative really has been no 2.0+ amps from USB and you can't disable CEC but some nice bloke helped me out with that ;)

@mmesh Yes Xtreamer have been around for a while and made some good early generation NMT's but I'd take Raybuntu's advice or buy a case for the C2 as it's a great device.

@blackride Are you setting the time zone in Kodi? That may modify it so if it's not set it could be reverting back each time.

I'm also having the dead pixel issue (top left of the screen). :-(

wrxtasy, do you personally have any recommendations on what file format to use for my external drive? I'm currently using ExFat, but I'm considering reformatting it to NTFS or even EXT3/4. Which one would you recommend? I have a Mac with all the drivers installed for either of those.

I will try that tonight, hopefully it'll work.

@Raybuntu , is the IR receiver on the C2 capable of accepting generic MCE remote commands, or only the ones from the specific remote designed for it?
If not, how do I view live button presses so I can implement the <universalremote> functionality? DO i just enable debug logging?

What's happening I'm using the Harmony Smart Control hub (universal remote) and my activity has the shutdown command, and I can not remove it.
Removing the Shutdown() line from remote.xml does not work, it still shuts down the system.
But I know if I add a generic MCE remote instead it will not insert the shutdown command in my remote activity.

- Never used it but there is NTFS support in LE. That or EXT4 recommended. NTFS has better compatibility with PC's.
https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC. ... tions#L121

- So far as remotes are concerned please read Page #1 there is a link all about configuring Remote controls and MCE's compatible ones.

- There is a real Time clock Post in the last couple of pages somewhere, no idea where. Searching will be required.
I really cannot help with No RTC Hardware here. You would need to modprobe pcf8563 for the RTC.

Code: Select all

hwclock --help
would give some setup options.

- For Xvid and mpeg4, try disabling mpeg4 Hardware decoding by setting Accelerate MPEG4 > Never
If that does not work. No solution will be possible.

If that does not work. No solution will be possible.
Has anybody successfully played an XVID?
I just want to understand whether the frame drop problem is only mine ( :o ) or it is related to C2 ( :( )
