But the build doesn't work because of your graphics card... what point is there in retaining support for the SIL680 when you (the only person that needed it) can't use it? Or am I missing something here?

I suppose your right. I have been trying for nearly a month to get SIL680 to work with my current Kodi 16.1/xpenology system. Tried Ubuntu minimal, kodibuntu, opensuse kodi and no matter what I ran into problems usually with video. See:

I followed lrusak guide on how to make the build myself and failed more times than I can count. My skills just arnt up to snuff for getting this to work. I will gladly stay on 16.1 kodi for the foreseeable future if I can at least get a build that includes sil680. Now heres the big question. Would you be willing to make me a current stable build of LibreElec 16.1 with Sil680.

I would be forever grateful. Big Grin

For the record I have 3x systems with Geforce series 7 cards. So this next release will kill all 3 systems in a single blow. Also this is strange, appears that Driver for Linux 340.96 does support geforce series 7 cards. See:

Update: Ok according to what Ive read 340.96 is for series 8 & 9 but the driver update in 340.96 is identical to series 6 and 7 driver update in 304.131. So LibreElec is choosing to drop series 6 and 7 cards because its just 1 more driver rather than it being some fault of my hardware. That really sucks. "Nvidia also released legacy drivers on the same day for the GeForce 6 and 7 series, and those are marked with the 304.131 version. The changelog is identical with the 340.96 driver mentioned above."

Update 2: Include [env] patch: xf86-video-nvidia-legacy: bump 304.131 to 340.96 that killed my 3 systems in 1 update. Good Grief..
