We gotta make our own builds. It seems LibreElec is only for the PI moving forward..

What makes you say that?

It's not so much fixing anything for Nvidia users, the simple fact is that these Intel patches (in their current form) are not going to be merged so why continue using them in these test builds?

The purpose of these builds is to test changes that *will* be committed upstream. By including commits that are only in these builds and are never merged upstream I could be introducing problems that are not seen in official releases. Or worse, I could be masking problems that are then only seen in official releases once it affects tens of thousands of users.

Yes, I/we realise it sucks to drop these Intel commits. Patches welcome. Smile

Fair enough an understandable.

According to the discussions it seems adding the appropriate commands to the autostart.sh file will fix the issue for intel users anyway?

Yes it should do. It's not ideal, but for those willing to edit autostart.sh then that is the solution. Hopefully longer term a solution will emerge that makes editing autostart.sh unnecessary.

Keep up the good work @Milhouse


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - atoulmin - 2016-08-01

So can someone confirm this is what's needed in the autostart.sh to patch intel?

OUTPUT=`xrandr -display :0 -q | sed '/ connected/!d;s/ .*//;q'`
xrandr -display :0 --output $OUTPUT --set "Broadcast RGB" "Full"

No ... just look at the dropped patch ... it's all in there.

Thx for dropping the intel drivers! Instead of a movie I can watch a green screen now :/

@Fritsch: Can you provide more info or post the script how to patch it? I'm a noob in that Wink


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - Engelsen - 2016-08-01

According to fritsch's commit I think you have to paste this into your autostart.sh ...

Not related, but another commits most likely Updates deint settings in a non compatible way. Try changing these while playing a video.

intel cherry audio is _not_ supported. It lives somewhere out of tree and it will eventually come back if it properly fits into the patchset. This is when the upstream author merges it mainline or when he rebases on kernel 3.7

For the green screen: 10211 (PR) <- this will fix it.

@fritsch: is this the right way ?? Is this enough ?

(A bit confused form the pull)

Thx for helping!

Yes. Don't copy the #!/bin/sh twice.

Use it in combination with kodi's "Use Limited Range" setting.
