libreElec will do that already I believe.

Currently no direct kernel support in standard Raspbian.
Do you have any idea when this will be ready?
No.

Re: Compute Module 4

Perhaps if enough people here say they want one, that will encourage them to make one. They already know that people want a CM4 so threads like this aren't very productive. However, if you do actually use a lot of Compute Modules then you should submit feedback on https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/h...

HDMI0 or HDMI1?

There are currently issues with audio on HDMI1, so use HDMI0.

Re: stuck in wifi - Debian wheezy

Dougie is right, Wheezy is very old, we are currently two entire OS releases newer. Try a new SD card with a fresh install of Buster, if that still goes wrong, then we can look at it.

Re: How to watch a stream in SRT protocol with Pi4

At the moment, the only software which uses the H265 (HEVC) decoder on the Pi 4 is LibreElec (which uses Kodi). I am sure that supports streaming, but I don't know how you set it up. I'd suggest getting an install on LibreElec going and having a google on how to set it up for receiving streams.

Re: Display not displaying my raspberry PI

Use the edid-decode app built from the above commands to decode the EDID you dumped.

Working from memory on how these things work.

tvservice -d fred.bin
edid-decode fred.bin

and cut and paste the reply here.

Re: Farnell sells RPi4s with LPDDR4-2400?

This appears to be a typo on the Farnell website, 3200 is the correct speed. I've forwarded this to marketing/sales to get fixed. All Pi4's (Farnell, RS) come off the same production line (used by Farnell or RS with their own supply chain), and should be identical. Different memory speed needs diffe...

Re: Display not displaying my raspberry PI

Looks like you need the detailed timings patch, currently being code reviewed here. But that;s aimed at the Pi4 so I would need to push it to the Pi3 firmware branch as well. Hmm. I'll have a think. So what I think is happening, the display is 1366x768p60 which is a non-standard resolution, so the t...

Re: A modest (passive) suggestion

It's a nice idea (and passed on), but not going to happen on the Pi4 for routing reasons, as mentioned above. The current board was a nightmare to route as it is, adding a couple of extra through pins would make the nightmare even more nightmarish.

Re: trying to buy more than 1 pi zero

Interestingly, you can go to any Micro Center in the States and buy as many Pi Zero computers as you need at a time with increased per-unit pricing. That's the most bizarre pricing I have seen, for a Pi Zero W - 1 at $5.00 each 2-5 at $14.99 each 6+ at $19.99 each https://www.microcenter.com/produc...

This is of interest to those using the Official LCD/touchscreen. I've just found a bug in the touchscreen driver that means the refresh rate is limited to about 25Hz, even though it should be 60. There's a PR going through the system, but thought people might be interested to know the slightly chopp...

Something in the desktop startup process is knackered, but it's very difficult to tell what from that display. Can you C&P the dmesg somehow to get the full thing?

I haven’t seen anything about it before. The thing that I don’t understand is why the audio stopped working after an update, so it isn’t a hardware problem, and why it hasn’t been fixed yet.
Why? Time.

Please add an issue to our linux github repo, otherwise it will get lost on here.
