S905x CoreElec Hyperion.NG external Grabber not working

Hi there.
I’m newly registered (though being here for a long time) because I cannot (after hours of searching/reading) find the issue-- so Please Help . :slight_smile:

My Setup:

  • Khadas Vim 1 (S905x)
  • CoreElec (9.0.3)
  • Hyperion.NG (9.1.101)
  • Logilink VG0001A (recognized as Fushicai USBTV007 Video Grabber [EasyCAP])

other addons installed: (though I don’t think this info is needed)

  • TvHeadend (server&client on kvim)
  • Panasonic 4k TV
  • Onkyo

USB Grabber does not bring up LED lights at all

USB-Grabber itself could be defective (and cannot be tested, since no Windows PC at hand)

The Grabber is detected as /DEV/VIDEO10

Hyperion.NG works like a charm for 4K-HDR & TVheadend, (priority:250) but ceases as soon as I enable “Enable USB capture” (priority: 200).

After that no analog input (old wii via AV-cable) seems to bring the LED back on.
Neither DEVICE:AUTO nor DEVICE: /dev/video10 nor DEVICE: ‘/dev/video10’

maybe the V2L always tries to reference to VIDEO0 instead of VIDEO10 ???


  • CoreELEC: ~/.kodi/temp # v4l2-ctl --list-devices*
    amlvideo (amlvideo-000):
    Failed to open /dev/video0: No such file or directory

please help - additional info can be posted upon request

THANK YOU very much in advance :wink:

Tested it with 2 other Fushicai UsbTV007 UTV007 devices on 2 fresh CoreElec 9.2.0 setups (Khadas Vim v1 and MXQ PRO 4K) ==> I guess the video4linux driver is broken – WHERE can I find the .log for further analysis ?
