The RPi doesn't support hibernate so this change is meaningless.

There is a "virtual suspend" supported by these builds (not in official LibreELEC releases) which simply turns off the HDMI port. With Settings Level of Advanced/Expert, you can enable "Suspend" in Settings > System > Power Saving > Shutdown function, and use the "Shutdown function timer" to disable the display after the set number of minutes idle. Any button should then reactivate (turn on) the HDMI port. The only reason to use this is to allow the connected display to go into "eco" mode once the RPi becomes idle.

That worked for me... wish on the harmony there was a way to just repair instead of deleting. So annoying!

Wow, you need to remove the device/activity and re-create it? That sucks indeed.


Yes... includes losing all buttons on the activity and everything.

At the moment you can't because the CEC settings are broken. And since the RPi doesn't support hibernate there's nothing to be gained from this latest change.

After # 0722, every time you switch to another program, you will be buffered for approx. 5 seconds. (VU+/enigma2 client)
This is quite annoying.

Reported earlier (link), buffering is indeed anoying when zapping through the channels.
Recording still works when you start it via contextmenu.

Yes, I know this has been repeatedly reported. Only since 20 days or since the # 0722 nothing has been changed.
I can not see so sensible TV, this is the problem.

I've noticed when I go to switch to another channel for a moment on pause and go back to play, then is not buffered. Maybe this is the issue. It's a Timing problem.

Then you have to install the addon.
System, addons, look and feel and then languages.
There you can choose your language to install.

Sorry, but that doesn't do anything.
No new language, nothing happens.
By the way - in earler versions there's no need to do such things. Languages were automatically loaded as choosen.

Changing the Language from LibreELEC-RPi2.arm-8.0.2 does the expected thing.
After that rebooting.
But: When i try to copy the #812 update file to the update directory of Kodi the transfer is soooooooo slow (abt. 100 KB/s).
I'm a little bit confused. Maybe something wrong with new Samba?
