Re: Help attempting to watch live tv on kodi

I have done that for a similar if not the same tuner some time ago. I believe that you only need the correct firmware file. You can copy it/them from https://github.com/LibreELEC/dvb-firmwa ... r/firmware to /lib/firmware/

Re: 64-bit operating system

Fake KMS support MMAL, the problem is that the implementation in some programs don't work yet. Raspivid is a small program, but much more complex programs like VLC, Chromium, Kodi, etc. won't be easy to get hardware video decoding to work. VLC fullscreen mode, with that option, I didn't tested, but ...

Re: 64-bit operating system

Though from the description, fake KMS is supposed to permit MMAL in 32-bit mode. Which description? What I have read is that fake kms allows access to dispmanX. DispmanX and MMAL are 2 different things. I know that there is work in progress to get MMAL working with the VC4 open source fake KMS driv...

Re: 64-bit operating system

without the closed-source graphics driver, there is no hardware video decoding and the OpenGLES performance is much worse. Shouldn't video decoding still work with Fake KMS? Per: edit the vc4-kms-v3d overlay to: dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d you will end up with Eric's arm side v3d driver, supporting desk...

I really doubt that. What game that can run on the Pi, requires more than, let's say, 700MB of RAM (to have some spare for the OS)?

I recommend that you follow this tutorial to install and configure Kodi on Raspbian Stretch.

If after that it still does not work, post your Kodi debug log:

Re: How to root OSMC and install a desktop environment alongside Kodi

However, they do not state that a desktop environment can be installed and that you can use OSMC as a desktop OS. All that needs to be done now is a way to run desktop apps on top of the Kodi interface instead of having to exit Kodi and load the desktop environment. You can't do that, unless you co...

Yep, just like him, when debug logging is enabled the gui shows up when I pause (and stop) the video. So I can't post a log. The issue seems to be related to the Estuary skin because when I changed to another skin the problem disappeared. For a workaround until it is fixed, you can remove the overs...

There is a really bad timing issue with the startup of Raspbian. If I have "wait on network" set in raspi-config I most likely will not have lxpanel working correctly when I boot.
