CoreELEC 19.2-Matrix_rc2 Discussion

After freshly installing the latest version and restoring my backed up data, all my artwork is missing.
I checked the tar file and there’s no thumbnails folder, I added the thumbnails folder from an old back up to \storage.kodi\userdata\ but the artwork still isn’t showing.

I then backed up and deleted Textures13.db to see if that would fix the problem. After that I put the Textures13.db file from my old back up in storage.kodi\userdata\Database.

I’m trying to avoid rescanning for artwork since my films are spread across a lot of external hard drives. Would backing up my current MyVideos107.db file and replacing the version in my old back up keep my watch list? If so, I will restore my old back up.

You wrote: "As per kshi’s post, just reflash the boxes back to stock Android firmware using USB Burning tool "
Wait a second… :thinking:
kshi said to flash to one of the custom 7.1.2 ROMs since the stock ROMs on those devices have never been updated and are stuck on the 6.0 ROM versions.

Backing up artwork was disabled in 9.2.x because it usually took way too long and took up way too much space.
In CE 19.x you now have a choice where you can select to backup the artwork or not.

Ah, thanks for explaining. I will try restoring my old backup with my current MyVideos107.db file.

s905x cannot play hdr10plus contents it always reboots after failing to play.

s905x3 can play hdr10plus contents just fine.

i believe ever since i installed coreelec 19 it has had this problem but i just recently created an account to report this. happy to provide any info you need.

Go over this thread: HDR10+ on Amlogic S905D and S905Y2
Please post which Android version you have on the box, post dmesg output during playback attempt (explained in the linked thread how to achieve it).

got it, thank you!

is it possible to update xpadneo driver to newest version, actually buildin is 0.6.0, newest is 0.9.1

master branch is 0.10.0 but it needs kernel 4.18 so not for us :slight_smile:

Your s905x doesn’t need to be updated to Android 8 or higher.
Android 7.1.2 is the version you need.
You can try this ROM (lots of positive feedback from the owners of various s905x boxes):

Today I did a fresh install on my Venz V10 Pro, a generic gxl_p212_2g/S905X device.
Previous version was CoreElec 9.7.2

Using the remote.conf from the original installation everything used to work fine with 9.7.2. But with this release at least the down button does not work.

In the log from 9.7.2. it reads (up and down pressed)

2021-08-01 19:58:49.773 T:4087472112   DEBUG: Keyboard: scancode: 0x67, sym: 0x0111, unicode: 0x0000, modifier: 0x0

2021-08-01 19:58:50.563 T:4087472112   DEBUG: HandleKey: down (0xf081) pressed, action is Down

In the 19.2rc2 log it reads:

2021-08-01 19:13:52.077 T:5842    DEBUG <general>: Keyboard: scancode: 0x67, sym: 0x0111, unicode: 0x0000, modifier: 0x0

The CLibInputPointer is the only response to the down button.

The sections (yes, the up and down buttons appear twice) in remote.conf are:

		0x05 103    #up
		0x00 108    #down

		0x25 103	#up
		0x26 108	#down

Any recommendations??


I am facing a very strange problem,
I just bought a second Khadas Vim3 pro box. I transferred the MicroSD card from one to the other, and I have a problem with this new box that I don’t have on my first Khadas Vim 3 pro box (older). However, both have the same firmware. I have done the test several times, and the problem is systematic.

The problem is : Movies crash after 2min of playback.
The last time it happened around 6:20 pm :

Need some informations. I am now on 9.2.7 version. Can i update to 19.2 Matrix . Is the chipset supported ?

Guess what, we need some informations too, like which chipsets?

I see there are other questions, but let me share my research with you. It happened again, and here’s what I can read as it happened :
