Thanks for the update.

I’ve been trying to find the main issue that was found with Leia beta1 and fixed in v2 on github, but could not find it. Curiousity will get me one day :wink:


#5

Greetings,

Thanks for the update.

Best regards…


#8

Thanks for the update! Is automatic resolution/colourspace switching working in this build between 1080p and 4K 10bit and vice versa?


#9

No, it doesn’t yet.


#13

Excellent release once again.

Are there any plans to update docker to a newer version? Is it possible for us to do it ourselves? I have PiHole running on my box and the new version 4.0 image does not seem to be working on Docker 17.10


#15

Hi guys, Hyperion addon is missing from CoreElec Repository on this version. Where I can get it from ?
Thanks for the great update and for hard work.


#16

Thanks for the update! Just quickly flashed and tried it on H96 Pro+ but I experience freeze when seeking in HEVC MKV video. Skipped a few versions because I wasn’t near to my device for 2 months so not sure if this is new.


#18

Can anybody explain what this means? What should now be better than before?


#19

Hevc playback. Less buffering.


#20

Technically, I do not know what changes the algorithm. The amount of data buffered has increased? The used data are more quickly deleted, to give place to the news?

According to my observations, buffering is more sophisticated. It adapts better to the linear flow of videos, as if it anticipated peaks better. This has the following effect:
I have the ability to read http://jell.yfish.us/ up to 160 Mb / s, against 120 Mb / s with the previous version of CoreElec. Great !

However, I see a random instability with videos that have average speeds around 110 Mb / s and more. It translates as : Sometimes some videos pass perfectly. Other times, these same videos will jam / block, for no apparent reason. Strange.

To summarize, before, it was less efficient, (blocked at 120 Mb / s), but more stable. Today, we can go to 160 Mb / s, but instabailites above 100 Mb / s.


#21

Unless you can back this up with logs or other hard data, all your stories remain fairy tales.


#23

This release too gives me the purple screen on my beautiful Bravia x900e… Do I really have to remove my colour space settings in autostart to fix this or is revert going to land?


#24

Purple unicorn issue is confirmed. A possibile patch is already in testing.


#25

Thanks for the update.

In the effort to get “PBS ThinkTv” working again, I would appreciate if you would update “inputstream.adaptive” to the latest version: 2.2.25 in your next release.


#26

Have auto-updates been disabled? Get notifications, but nothing ever downloads. Thanks.


#27

If you think you have a bug to report then please open a thread, versions 8.90.0 and 8.90.1 did not auto update, all others will update after you reboot.


#29

Hello, has this build solved the problem of video calibration? Well after doing the video calibration in the settings everything was ok, but when you restart the calibration the calibration is reset to the default settings. And another, does she accept the RCA connection? Because the Libreelec builds up to version 8.2.3.1 supported this connection, the Coreelec that I had tested until a few months ago only supported connection by HDMI.


#30

I don’t think that calibration issues were CE related.
And yes, RCA should work, as long as you are using it for both video and audio output.


#31

The calibration issue is CE related, and isn’t fixed.
Specifically the calibration issue is that when the default GUI is set to 60Hz, the calibration settings are not saved after reboot. It’s only in CE, and only with the 60Hz, all other refresh rates work fine.

-> Ricardo_pablo, In System Display settings, if you select a default GUI other than 60Hz (anything except 60Hz, I have mine at 50Hz), then the calibration issue is fixed.

Edit: also you need to use the correct aspect ratio in the settings of your TV, usually called “Just scan”
