As I know, AndroidOS doesn't support the ethernet and Wi-Fi simultaneously(at the same time) even though a device has an ethernet port and Wi-Fi card, such as Linux or Windows.
But somewhere on internet posts(i don't remember...), I read that Android TV OS supports it.
That's why, I'm here since I have ODROID-XU4 board.

My Android application on ODROID-XU4 has to use the ethernet for another board and the wi-fi for internet at the same time.
So, the question is that...
1. Is the Android TV OS able to get 2 or more different IP addresses per each NIC?
2. Is it possible to use ethernet and wifi at the same time on Android TV?

@fse
No answer yet. I hope they can give us a solution early September.

@SACHOMAN69'
Yes, it works.
We tested some Bluetooth speakers, Keyboards and Mice.

I have minor problem, however frustrating, with navigation menu's in system settings and applications. I can't see the selected menu item, because the selected menu item background is the same (or almost the same) like whole menu. Because of that going trough options with TV remote is really difficult... Of course when you use mouse problem disappears because you know what you click. But not with TV remote. Could selected menu item background be modified somehow?

We've updated the hdmi driver including 1080p24hz and 23.976hz on Hardkernel Android 4.x version.
And so far no response for 720p yet. :(
I will check if the hdmi driver of LineageOS-14.1 Android TV has been updated.

@Voodik is there a possibilty to get the RTL8191SU (rtl8192su) driver included in the next build? I can't see it being present/loaded when checking

Code: Select all

dmesg | grep rtl

Thanks! :)

If you have a little bit of linux/unix know how, you can do it manually. Remember, that android is "just" a nice user interface and beneath it the full power of a linux kernel and minimalistic userland is running.

If you have no shell experience at all, I suggest to give up here. If you have - that is what i would do:

- Connect a notebook with linux the way the box would be connected
- use ip and route (or ip route) to setup the connection as you want/need - i.e. a private subnetwork for the ethernet card and the wireless route for the wifi to use internet
- if it all works, you have an idea what you exactly want
- now replace the xu4 with the linux notebook
- open a terminal and connect a keyboard. use the same, or similar commands to setup your ethernet and wifi
- you might need to do some google research if i.e. one network interface is disconnected and you cannot just use the ip command to bring it up
- if you get both interfaces enabled i am sure you can manually set routing and addresses
- if it all works, write needed commands to a .sh file. reboot, execute .sh file, see if it works
- once you can start your setup via the .sh file, put that file to /system/etc/rc.d/ or /system/etc/rc.local

done.

Hello,

I have some questions about the current state of the ROM.

Media-Player:
  • Does H.264/H.265 run smoothly with 1080p24/50/60?
    Is HDCP 2.2 supported?
    Is Multi-channel PCM supported via HDMI?
    Is Audio-Bitstream passthrough supported via HDMI (Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby ATMOS, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, DTS-HD Master Audio, etc.)?
    Do the Netflix and the Amazon Prime Video App work properly?
Navigation with Google Maps:
  • What GPS-mouses are supported?
    Is there any compass/gyro/accelerometer hardware supported?
Thanx for any hint! :-)

I tried H265, ended up pretty laggy no matter if I used Kodi/VLC/MX player. H264 does run smoothly last I checked. I believe some of the other details you'd like to know can be answered when checking in general for Android 7/Linageos, but voodik can probably give you the best answer there. Some firmware is baked in Android by default.

*Edit: You might have some luck checking https://magazine.odroid.com/article/bui ... tep-guide/ on how to build your own version, and perhaps compiling the drivers yourself if they are missing, depending on which hardware you use.

Hey guys,

What's the different between the regular LineageOS and LineageOS Adroid Tv version?

Which one should I get if I want to use my Xu4 mainly as a media center/server?

By the way, I'm curious about these questions as well:

@Voodik is there anyway to get the DVR function to work? I have an HD Homerun prime. I've tried formatting the hard drive to both file systems said to be compatible with silicon dust's driver. But still can't get it to work.

I just installed this ROM and make an update. My intereface is Andoid TV like interface. I am wonder how it is able to install more apps from store not only the one dedicated to the Adroid TV version. In particular I want to install Google's "find my device", but I cant find it in playstore.

No sir, just using native Android "Live TV" app with an HD homerun it is suppose to enable DVR functions; fast forward, rewind, pause, and recording. Silicon dust and Google teamed up to provide a free easy method to have DVR, I'm wondering if I need to take my build.prop to make Live TV app think it's a Nexus player or Nvidia Android TV device.

Indeed I was able to install an app from apkmirror, but particularly for "find my device" it is not able to use Internet. Not sure ...is there any problem with allowing Internet on apps which are installed not from Play Store. My Box have internet.....not sure why only this app reports that there is no internet. Any advice ?

@rosz
I don't think the app supports the Ethernet connectivity. It may work with only WiFi or 3G/4G connectivity.
You might need to contact the app developer to fix the issue.

I've tried the newest image with a clean copy on sdcard. I get no picture on a HDMI connected TV. The Fan spins on full for a while, then stops for a second and returns to full-speed. This has been going on for ~45 minutes before i aborted. HDMI is the only connection method I have available. The older lineage image I can run just fine. The XU4 did not connect via ethernet during this procedure.
I've checked the sdcard afterwards and it seems the (auto) partitioning went ok. What I can do to debug this problem? Or maybe there's a known issue with the image?

Post by kot_behemot » Mon Nov 27, 2017 10:23 pm

Hello and great thanks for this image! I'm a new ODroid XU4 user and I have a few medium to minor issues with this image.

1. On 1080p display mode I have weird artifacts in the home screen. Not immediately after boot, but whenever i exit any full screen app, the bottom of the home screen gets "smeared" while scrolling up and down - see screenshot here: https://imgur.com/yDNi8Wr And it stays that way until reboot. EDIT: This doesn't happen in lower resolutions, e.g. 720p.
2. In most cases when the system crashes, it automatically reboots, but cannot fully boot and instead stays in auto-reboot loop until I manually pull out the power cable and put it back in, which is quite annoying.
3. When I turn on the "HDMI CEC switch on" option, the system theoretically boots when I turn on my TV, but often it falls into reboot loops and sometimes spontaneously boots on its own - so this option is practically unusable.

Out of these issues, 1. and 2. bug me the most. Do you guys know any workarounds?

Thanks for your help.

Hello all, and I just would like to say, Great thanks for the people here helping others out. I myself have benefited a lot from this forum for years, and never had I am stuck to a problem like this.

Now to the problem. I am facing the same problem @luutz and few others are facing. I have XU4 and I have tried the lineage-14.1-ATV/Alpha-1.0_20.11.17 image on a SD card. I get no picture on HDMI, Fan spins, then stops and then continues. I have let it run this way for hours to test it. The older lineage images and the mainline android 4.4.4 images suggested by @odroid are working fine.

I have observed the sd card after fresh flashing, and inspected the uboot configuration in the boot.ini file. It seems fine. However, after I boot it, and wait some time (suggested 20min to hours), abort and check the sd card again, now 4 partitions have been created. But none of them has the boot.ini file anymore. It is my understanding that to boot we need the uboot configuration.

I have tried older android / lineage versions, and they seem to work fine. so from my novice understanding, it seems the problem is with missing uboot configuration, or is it something else. Also the same issue is with the normal latest Android version lineage-14.1/Alpha-1.2_25.11.17.

Any idea guys. I wish I knew more to debug the problem myself.

Voodik is living in Bali. As you may know, there is a big disaster of a volcano explosion.
So he can't access Internet these days probably. Please understand this urgent situation. I don't know if he is safe or not. :(

Thanks a lot for this image Voodik. It is really awesome and works very well. Just wondering would it be possible to get support for AF9015 based TV Tuners? It works very well on my XU4 on Debian and source is easily available.

I was having tons of issues getting my XBox 360 Wireless Controller to work on RetroArch on this. All other apps worked fine, including ePSXe & FPSe. Just not RetroArch and would have issues with my D-PAD & Joysticks.

Here is the solution. Simply add

Code: Select all

Vendor_045e_Product_0719.kl -> /system/usr/keylayout/
&

Code: Select all

Vendor_045e_Product_0719.kcm -> /system/usr/keychars/
and reboot.

Hi guys.
I can't get this to boot on the emmc (using sd2emmc image) on my XU4.
The installation seems ok (looking at the logs via UART). The XU4 goes to power off. I remove the SD card and flip the switch to boot from EMMC
the logs show some errors regarding some config files not beeing found.
Using the Sdcard image the OS boot properly.

Strangely the Android TV version also boot without problem from the EMMC

Any clue what's happening ? (I'll post logs output tonight)

Stupid question (maybe). Why isn't there a selfinstall image we can flash on the emmc directly like for the C2 ?

Hi.
I've just run the newest build and it turns out there's no audio via HDMI.
Is there any solution?

dvb_usb_rtl28xxu.ko

So made some more progress, after I loaded r820t.ko, rtl2832.ko & dvb-usb-rtl28xxu.ko, it appears as if the card initializes correctly, but if I start TVHeadEnd, it just crashes. It starts perfectly without the DVB modules loaded. Any ideas?

Hi!

First of all, thank you voodik for putting this up. I had some troubles to get it to run, but mainly because I didn't quite follow all instructions in details. Now all is up and running, and rather smoothly at that.

One important things to those who have no display showing up: I had to edit the boot.ini to get it to show up. Just plug the eMMC in the SD adapter and on to your PC, and edit the file manually. You should "force" a resolution & refresh rate that works with your monitor. For some reasons on mine the default one didn't work; took me ages to figure out.

On a side note: has anyone been able to make Netflix run on this? I got the latest Android TV apk from apkmirror and it crashes on launch... Any suggestions / guidance would be nice.

Thanks!

M

Voodik is there a way to setup a keyboard shortcut for the power menu to do a clean shutdown without doing reboot -p in terminal? I have my device enclosed otherwise I'd just use the power button on the board.
