LibreELEC for Khadas VIM (SD & USB & eMMC)


#282

Update 20180816 image LE-9 kernel 4.18.


#283

The renewal of the image LE-9 (4.18). Added support for USB sound cards. You can use the sound output on the Tone Board.


#284

Checked the work of Tone Board with the latest version of LE-9, perfectly defined and works. Please to those who have the opportunity to check the operation of the SPDIF (in the Tone Board and the Board itself VIM1).

п.с. Починили перемотку, нужно дважды щёлкнуть мышкой на новой позиции.

Hello balbes150, I tried for SPDIF over Tone board. Running LE LibreELEC-Khadas_VIM.arm-9.0-devel-20180817143145-34a3aa6.img from USB card reader.

I was unable to get SPDIF output from the Tone board. I configured LE to xcore SPDIF.

It should be noted, I have not got it to work on Android Nougat 20180619 either.

In both cases, the Tone board continues to output over analog outputs.

I have also posted the Android results in the Tone section.

Let me know if I have missed something.
Thanks.

Hi RDFTK
It is possible that the kernel 4.18 is not yet ready to work with SPDIF. Try to run the image LE with kernel 3.14 and test the SPDIF.


#287

CONFIG_SND_SOC_MESON_SPDIF isn’t enabled in the current kernel config and mainline device trees don’t expose the hardware. It’s known and on the to-do list once we start digging into audio support (sometime soon hopefully, but no timescales).


#288

Not sure how to swap kernels. I remember reading about it, but have been unable to find it again.

Note: Results are the same with or without TB on LibreELEC.


#289

You don’t need to change anything manually. :slight_smile: Just take another image of LE from here.


#290

That, I can do.:grin:

I will let you know what I find.
Thanks. :slight_smile:


#291

Hello balbes150, Same results.

With Tone board - LibreELEC-S905.arm-9.0-devel-20180813185847-d35efa1.tar
-No SPDIF output. Tone board’s analog outputs carry signal when set to SPDIF.

-20180619 Android same SPDIF result as LE.

Without Tone board - LibreELEC-S905.arm-9.0-devel-20180813185847-d35efa1.tar
-No SPDIF settings option available in LE.

-20180619 Android GPIO SPDIF works.


#292

Update Libreelec images with kernel 3.14 (20180831).


#293

Thanks for image. Is github source code repository already up to date?
I recently have issues downloading from yandex. I will contact you personally.
I can try to build myself should download continue to fail. :slight_smile:


#294

Hi. I don’t have time to update git. I’ll do it in the next few days.

#297

#298

Update 20180902 image LE kernel 4.18.


#299

Perfect, I could build and run LE+addons just fine for KVIM2 EMMC 3-in-1 libreelec (kernel 3.14.29). I still have trouble downloading from Yandex but will contact you 1:1 about it.

Thanks so much for your amazing work !

Updated image LE-9.1 (kernel 4.18) .


#301

Hi guys, i just installed the latest alpha build on my vim1, by burning it on a sd card.
So now i would like to install it on emmc, if possible without keeping android. How should i do it?
I guess it should depend of the uboot installed on emmc, right ?
I’m not afraid of complex solution, i just need the steps. Unfortunately the khadas vim docs is a mess and inconsistent, and forum posts are not documentation.
