I also have no more HDMI audio devices on #0313. Reverting to some build where these devices are still available.

Try the blacklist workaround as mentioned a few posts above.

Ok, thank you for the hint! :-)

will we need to use work around from now on or will kodi devs fix it?


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - threz_ - 2019-03-14

I'm unable to play video across my network with LibreELEC versions since LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-8.90.006, including 9.0.0, 9.0.1, and #0313 posted just above. 

I've installed #0313 as per the instructions above, using a completely fresh install of 9.0.1 then updating to #0313. The only config changes I made were to change the hostname and to add the network path to the video. 

When I try to play the video, the loading screen sits for a few seconds and then the video starts playing but immediately starts stuttering/buffering. It buffers for a while, then plays again for a bit, then buffers. Some videos just plain close after a cycle or two of this. 

Everything works fine in 8.90.006 but I'd love to be able to update. 

Is there a fix or workaround? 


Here is my logfile: http://ix.io/1DxM

looks like it could be the same RT81xx ethernet issue affecting Chromeboxes, which started with kernel 4.19.0.  Try the workaround listed in the Chromebox wiki page, ie add 'pci=nomsi' to the kernel command parameters and reboot.

 for HDMI output on SKL/KBL devices? that's not a Kodi issue, it's a LE / kernel one.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - threz_ - 2019-03-15

That seems to have worked! 

I'm not using a Chromebox, but instead a Gigabyte Brix BXi3-4030. I didn't think to look in the Chromebook wiki. 


Will I have to re-apply this fix after every update?

 yes, I know - I just looked at your log and saw it was using the same ethernet controller (Realtek 81xx) and speculated it might be the same issue.  That's actually good for me, in that it implies that the fault is likely with the kernel/driver and not my firmware.

syslinux.cfg is only overwritten when doing a fresh install, updates will not affect it


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Milhouse - 2019-03-15

@matt Devo, @threz_, @Nekromantik both these issues are kernel related, not Kodi.

The network issue has a bug report but it's not getting any attention, so don't expect a fix any time soon - the workaround is the best we have right now.

I have no idea what is causing the audio issue, there's no bug report as far as I'm aware, and again the workaround (blacklisting snd_soc_skl) is the best solution. Anyone affected by it is welcome to open a bug.

The workarounds only need to be applied once (unless you clean install).

Same sound issue here on KabyLake (Intel NUC7i3BNK) since build #312. Solved with the workaround. Just upgraded to #315 and it's working. I'll keep that blacklist fix.

I have also some strange issues with the network, but I'm still investigating. Will report once I understand better, too random for now.

Thanks a lot for your support.
