LibreELEC for Khadas VIM1 VIM2 VIM3 (SD & USB & eMMC)

Версию 9.0 с ядром 4.18 от 08.08.
Khadas Vim1 Pro
Проблема с перемоткой видео сохранилась, все так же зависает. Проигрыватель видео выглядит так, как будто сдвигаются слои интерфейса. Настройками декодера проблема не решается.
Порадовала скорость интерфейса и работа HDMI CEC - ни одного зависания/отвала за все время тестирования.

Версии с ядром 4.18 тестовые и там многое не работает.

To all
Update image 20180814 Libreelec kernel 3.14.

Update 20180816 image LE-9 kernel 4.18.


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.


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.

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.

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).


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.

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

That, I can do.:grin:

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

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.

Update 20180902 image LE kernel 4.18.


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 !
