CoreELEC 8.95.6

Thanks for that information…
Question is for me I installed the fantastic CE on my MINIX U9-H
How can I get the remote working again?
MINIX remote works but with my harmony it stopped working on the rc2. ( beta version worked fine)

Read the first post.


I have to do the “echo” thing for my Minix. I am just unsure of the process. I know how to SFTP in to the device, but at a loss when it comes to entering the commands. Is there a step by step posted? Thanks.

You can use something like “PuTTy” to SSH into your box.
It will give you a command line where you can enter commands.
Simply copy and paste the correct “echo” command to the command line and press enter.

@d-vine you haven’t given enough information… what remote do you have your Harmony configured as?

@Vinylity It’s nothing to do with SCP, the process is very simple, download PuTTy as Arthur has said above and SSH into the device and then copy and paste the above corresponding command, then reboot, it’s not rocket science :yum:

took me some time to figure out everything but manage to do it. (sorry just new on CE but I find my way)
Got Harmony Elite on MINIX U9-H

I made a file and post it on this section if I did it wrong tell me :wink:

Everything works now.

Would be nice If there is a kodi add on so you can select a remote from list and you good to go instead of SSH commands… but this tweaking Is lot of fun I be honest :smiley:

Absolutely right @adamg . Not rocket science, i did exactly that and it worked fine. :joy:

@d-vine you would have been better to configure your Harmony as a MCE or Tanix remote, no additional configuration is required then.

@d-vine I use my Harmony remote to turn on my system and the Minix works with it.

@Vinylity I test the remote and nothing works with the CE rc2 version… beta no problem
the MINIX remote worked.
I understand I could set the MCE but manage to make a new file where all my remote buttons are in.
And it is fun to do so…

Same for me, everything worked until this update. Followed what @adamg said about SSH into the Minix and the Harmony worked.

Hi, updated no problem on my S905 Minix and S912 H96Pro+.
Image quality is fantastic.

Question: how do I know colourspace autoswitching is actually working for my HDR videos?

I use my AV receiver to check it. I have a Denon receiver, so i go to General > Information > Video and it shows me everything.

@Spinecho, ssh into your box and run the following:

wget -O

Thanks…what does this do?

@Spinecho the is a script I made to collect graphics debug info and make it easy to post online.

If you just want to see info about the current display settings such as bit depth it is easier to just use the following.

cat /sys/devices/virtual/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/config

Which will show just the current display configuration.

Do I do this when I’m playing a video?
Also, what results would I expect to see?

Sorry for the questions.

@Spinecho, Yeah. If you run the command before you’ll see this result

------------ /sys/devices/virtual/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/config ------------
cur_VIC: 16
VIC: 16 1920x1080p60hz
Colour depth: 8-bit
Colourspace: YUV444
Colour range: limited
YCC colour range: limited
PLL clock: 0xc000027b, Vid clock div 0x000a339c
audio config: on
3D config: off

If you run the command during playback of 10-bit HDR10 content you’ll see

------------ /sys/devices/virtual/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/config ------------
cur_VIC: 93
VIC: 93 3840x2160p24hz
Colour depth: 10-bit
Colourspace: YUV444
Colour range: limited
YCC colour range: limited
PLL clock: 0xc000029a, Vid clock div 0x000b0000
audio config: on
3D config: off

@CI6N0Z…wow! Fantastic. Works perfectly and shows me autoswitching is functioning.

One question…why is colour range limited? Is this normal?

@Spinecho, If you read about how TVs and PCs handle video signals, you’ll find that they handle it differently. TVs have a smaller colour space which means that they have a smaller range (“limited”), 16-235 as an example for 8-bit signal vs 0-255 (“full”) - the range PCs use. This is nothing to worry about as the loss from “full” to limited" in range is minor compared to the difference between example 8-bit and 10-bit. The important factors regarding best possible quality are resolution, colour depth (range), which is 10-bit for HDR10, and the colourspace, YUY444 or YUY442.
