a good reason for me to buy the Khadas Vim (besides the ability to decode H265, which it does very well under LibreELEC) was the built-in IR receiver and the GPIOs.
Now I must experience that this is not so simple. The usual RPi methods (“dtoverlay=…” in /flash/config.txt, there is not even an overlay folder) do not seem to apply, and I could not find any hint, neither in this forum nor in the documentation, how to activate the IR receiver under LibreELEC.
The same is for the GPIOs. Khadas presents a pinout, well, but no instructions whatsoever how to communicate with the pins. I simply need to flash an external LED, but this seems to be impossible. Khadas advertises the Vim by directly comparing it with the RPi, having not only GPIOs but also a built-in IR receiver, but what is my profit from it if there is no way to use it?
Or is there any? …
