I would like to pick up the discuassion again which was started over at the LibreELEC forum back in November last year. The situation we discoverd there still persists, but I may have some additional pertinent information.
Meanwhile, I have Armbian running with the 3.14.29 kernel on my 905W box:
Linux amlemby 3.14.29 #131 SMP PREEMPT Wed May 16 16:14:24 MSK 2018 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
On this box, I installed the Sundtek driver in the usual fashion using their netinstall-script. after that, I find:
However, with CoreELEC on the box I find:
I am pretty sure that this is the problem. Also, @Ray had already provided a tvheadend version for kszaq’s LibreELEC which worked with the Sundtek sticks.
It would really be great if you could provide a stable solution to this, since these sticks are really first rate and I would hate not to be able to use them with your otherwise really great piece of SW!
EDIT: on the other hand, if I replace the tvheadend addon provided in the repos with the one I got from @Ray way back then, it works - so maybe it is not a driver problem on the Sundtek side? I am a bit flustered.
Anyway, it is great to be able to watch Sky UHD football with these boxes - this does not work with kszaq’s LibreELEC, where I only get a black screen. With CoreELEC 8.90.5, however, it seems to work like a charm (at least for the last five minutes …)
