Is the C2 being CPU throttled due to some sort of temperature problem ?

Does the device crash all the time when left on 24/7 ?

If none of this is happening then what is this compulsive obsession with temps ? Wink

The answer to the first three questions is: NO. Wink

mpeg2 Software decoding (dc:ff-mpeg2) will put more load on the CPU and produce more heat.

Have you ripped off the heatsink and pointed an IR gun at the SoC to accurately measure the temps ?

Yes, hardware decoding works as expected. No, I didn't rip off the heatsink.

I'm contemplating ripping out the erroneous temp readout for LibreELEC as its causing so much grief and now costing users more money chasing different cases and cooling methods which I think are unnecessary.

Around 70 degrees C seems normal.

Thanks for your appreciation.

I have another last question for the moment:

Why do I get the plugin updates on the odroid c2 later than on my windows 10 clients?
