Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

That should read 500000. It might have been intended , it might even have worked at a point in the past, Idk, but...setting absolute microvolts is removed, or broken, now . Fortunately it is totally unnecessary since the range of meaningful arm core voltages is largely covered by the relative over_...

Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

But today I downloaded latest Raspbian Desktop, put it on a new SD card. Initial reboots etc were fine, until the automated setup installed updates and then wanted to reboot. The reboot hung on the splash screen. Was this just the first reboot after updating or is it every reboot? First is possible...

Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

@mikeschn Thanks for report. If we can get a couple more confirmations we'll push the updated version out tomorrow.

@pica200 The latest test firmware I linked to should still support gpu overclock (in a slightly safer implementation).
Feel free to test it if that is an important feature for you.

Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

@kerry_s @mikeschn @hectorkvs (and any others with the issue)

Can you try this firmware ?

Rather the reverting the commit it attempts to make it safe.
That means we still have the fix for gpu overclock settings causing a failure to boot.

Can you just clarify:
Did the first pair of files when updated together (start4.elf/fixup4.dat) work correctly?
Did the second pair of files when updated together (start4.elf/fixup4.dat) work correctly?

For fun, try:

Code: Select all

arm_freq=1600
in config.txt
It will run at this speed fine with no special cooling or over-voltage.
There is no guarantee this will be stable on all Pi 4s.

Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

Anyone who has this issue and finds it resolved with over_voltage=1
can you try:
test firmware scb125
test firmware volts

with over_voltage=1 removed and report if either firmware fixes the USB issue.

I think you expect too much. In window mode you already get lost frames when you play a 1080p50 video (not in overlay mode!) on a 1080p screen. It will get worse on larger screens or double screens.

No, this issue is related to running at low voltages with dvfs which only occurs on a Pi4.

Re: Issues since kernel got updated to 4.19.93

What would be the issue? Hardware related? I never did overclocking. The firmware commit identified was the main one that reduces power by reducing voltage when idle. It seems like there is a clock required by USB that is not happy (on some boards) at the reduced voltage. Do you have anything non-d...

It could be in the VC firmware, but @6by9 would need to confirm.
Yes, raspberrypi/firmware is best (it is the interface between firmware and kernel, so a fix is likely to affect both).
It doesn't appear to be a mesa issue (problem not observed on vc4-kms-v3d on Pi3).

I note that the 64-bit kernel keeps my Pi4 significantly cooler than the 32-bit one. Are you comparing the updating firmware/kernel with and without arm_64bit=1?

Re: Is it possible to play 4k movies only when a 4k monitor/tv is connected?

There is no problem playing 4k videos on a 1080p display (you can display them on SD composite display if you want).
Your issue is probably down to memory. What have you set gpu_mem to? Probably want at least 360M for 4k decode.
Make sure video files are HEVC format.

Re: VLC testing

Pi 4 here, cma=512M set, it seems the new VLC build can't play my video... Can you start by posting mediainfo (apt install mediainfo) of file? Assuming that is okay, we'll probably need a sample of the video (e.g. cut a 1 minute chunk and upload to a file hosting site like google drive or dropbox).
