Cheers for all the feedback, especially Noggins detailed stuff.
At the moment I have AMLogic HDMI CEC enabled in the boot.ini file as well, this may be causing conflicts.
I suspect this does not actually need to be enabled if you are using Pulse8 libCEC in Kodi. As a test if you disable libCEC in Kodi you fallback to the AML implementation. Those having HDMI CEC issues should disable CEC in the boot.ini file and then report back.
LibCEC is found in:
Settings > System > Input Devices > Peripherals >
Still tracking down this annoying Ethernet issue, seems some HK - Kernel update is causing issues as the underlying Linux OS has had very few changes since the initial .img release went out. I only see it when using SD cards. I will put the original one back up for those having problems.
I will also pull out the patch that disables the mouse by default, its a hangover patch from the WeTek Core as the mouse caused all sorts of GUI navigational issues when left on by default.
Another .tar update will be incoming this time using Owersuns Audio implementation.
For those with Ethernet issues, Backup your LibreELEC settings and pull the .tar file from the backup folder and save on a Mac/PC before updating.
I am considering rolling back the Kernel to the original version as well.
