So CEF is definitely a thing and I wouldn't be surprised if we see online DRM content being played back using CEF very soon whether Sam incorporates it in OSMC for netflix and amazon video playback OR someone else implements it but i can almost bet it's coming.
Interesting, sounds as if they are a media player software using CEF as a framework for web based plugin addons as I suggested

Another person not listening to what I am saying.

I am committed to upstreaming any changes that we make. Have you ever tried to build Pi's mainline support? There are still a good 80 patches downstream in popcornmix's repository that have not made it up. Some are not suitable (either too platform specific or do not meet upstream conventions). I am sure we will get things upstream eventually, but these things take some time. We want to stay as close to Kodi as possible: for reasons of compatibility, maintainability and out of respect to the community and developers.

Apple TV !st running fine on Gotham 13.2 - whiteruud - 2015-01-04

I have Apple TV !st generation and three friends with the same - all running Gotham 13.2 - all of us are enjoying all that it has to offer and it's right now they working fine. So from what i am reading does this mean that they will all be garbage soon ?


RE: Vero OSMC - nickr - 2015-01-05

If they work now on Gotham and you don't mind sticking to Gotham then they will continue to work until they physically die.


RE: Vero OSMC - Hudson_Hawk04 - 2015-01-05

I believe they will continue to be supported, don't quote me on that....I was poking around on the forums overe there and that's how I took it

Nope still a capable little box, still superior videos modes compare to the Cubox. (and its now 8 years old!)

You might be pleasantly surprised - Kodi 14.1 with Crystal HD support is back Smile

RE: Vero OSMC - mdburkey - 2015-01-29

A few questions regarding the Cubox -- which I am considering for general Kodi use and potentially streaming from an HDHomeRun Prime via UPNP.
Right now, I'm using a FireTV with Kodi sideloaded -- but the Fire's UI is rather horrid and I haven't (yet) taken the steps to create a sacrificial front screen app for launching Kodi.

Specifically, has anyone on here tried the Cubox (any variant) with streaming from a HDHomeRun via UPNP/DLNA? Especially with full ATSC MPEG2 video streams at 1920x1080i?

Also, is anyone on here familiar with what version of the kernel and what bootloader they are using?
I know that the mainline kernels tend to be somewhat lagging in support for some of the video functionality for the iMX6 and the the newest Freescale official fork of 3.10.53GA has been adding a lot more support for updated video interfaces to DirectFB, Wayland, etc.

I do kernel and driver work on an iMX6 daily and did the initial port of barebox over to the Variscite iMX6 SOM, so I'm also sort of interested in the Cubox and Vero's as a potential development platform/testbed for home use.

I wouldn't say it's exactly off topic -- over half this thread has been about the Cubox/Vero and how they work (which are essentially the same iMX6 hardware in different colors).

What I'm really wanting to know if anyone on this thread has ever tested either of these with ANY media player Kodi, full OSMC, etc. streaming from an HDHomeRun Prime and how well they handle MPEG2 decode.

My question on the kernel variants is because I know that Freescale has been making some major updates to the kernel regarding the video drivers and GPU interface in their most recent release versions (new GA release just within the last few weeks) and was curious as to what kernels are CURRENTLY in use on these boxes/what OSMC is currently using. Basically, if they are still using mainline kernels or older Freescale forks, then there might be some performance improvements coming (which is never a bad thing).


RE: Vero OSMC - zag - 2015-01-30

Just a reminder to people to keep this thread on topic about the Vero hardware box.

I've now added it to the Hardware List sticky.

Looks like an interesting project. Love the design and the remote.

RE: Vero OSMC - fritsch - 2015-02-02

Looks like a real flagship device - and already fully working. Has features the imx6 boxes can't do - like 23.976 fps support according to: ยง33.2.6.1 of iMX6Q RM or via: http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/drivers/staging/imx-drm/imx-hdmi.c?v=3.16#L273

LMAO that was mean Koying mean! but since this is a thread not just to promote or be biased towards any single product, I would have to agree, whatever proposition or advantage VERO (or other ARM box) offered has literally been killed. Even if VERO shipped at exactly the same price, The Pi 2 IMHO will be leagues ahead, and the remote doesn't do anything for me. ironic that some users that didn't pre order VERO have the Pi 2 right now with new openelec builds running right now. I wish you luck Sam but the landscape has changed dramatically.


RE: Vero OSMC - fritsch - 2015-02-03

That's something that can always happen, especially in fast living technique market. No need to start a laughter. The vero / cubox still has their markets. The cubox has an esata port and gigabit ethernet, it can be a nice NAS and so on.


RE: Vero OSMC - MediaPi - 2015-02-03

very true fritsch Smile good times ahead for users (and hopefully developers Smile )
