DVB-C but not, and I did not necessarily talk about nightbuilds, official 8.0.0 does not seem to work either on RPI2 no RPi3

Thx, is it safe to play though? Can't find a lower quality stream for this channel.

build 302, first time I noticed a yellow flash icon top right corner of the screen when booting up.

Also, BeautifulSoup4 and LifeResolver failed to update just now, could be server down for those though.

Something I always notice from each build to build is that the video calibration is slightly changing every single time, sometimes its more and noticeable other times it's just a few pixels. Since the resolution doesn't change, can't we just use saved calibrated settings? Or why do I have to readjust every time I update?

Under this link I had found help -->> https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread-5537.h...ht=MN88473
Now all is well again.

Is that known? If yes, I am reassured.
But if it does not, maybe someone would like to pass it on to the right place?

Thanks for the attention!

Yes, it's known that 4.9.y and later kernels are causing some issues - @CvH has been producing builds in an effort to narrow down the regression.

The yellow flash icon means your PSU is not providing enough voltage, which might result in instability.

Possibly, please post a debug log if it continues.

Calibration settings should be saved. If the settings are not being saved then you should open a trac ticket. If this is a new issue then identifying when the problem started will help. Do you have this problem if you simply reboot the system without upgrading?

thanks for the quick answer millhouse. re PSU it's rather weird though as I never had any indication in the past, plus it's the pihut certified one, bundled with the rp3. i just rebooted and right after the rainbow screen i get the flash icon for a second then it disappears. as this was not happening before #302 or any other build before that I guess there are 2 options: 1) the readout is faulty or 2) the PSU just decided today to crap out on me. although Kodi is running fine 24/7 without any problems whatsoever (power wise).

reboot didn't change video calibration
shutting off, unplugging and rebooting did, though. had to recalibrate slightly after that.
also seemed to have lost some other settings, related to UI sounds, was silent before now default sounds are back active.

edit: i just checked the psu with my multimeter and the psu is fine (5.2v stable reading). on this second cold reboot then I was expecting to lose settings again but this time only the lower right corner was slightly changed and I had to make it larger again by a few pixel (not that you would notice but still the blue arrow was not at the exact same position as before the cold reboot), upper left and subtitle position (1025) was the same and no other settings were lost. weird.

nuwonda, I had that problem pop up on the nightlies a few weeks ago, oddly enough I bumped up the over_voltage (from 2 to 4) on my overclock settings and the yellow lightning bold went away and I've not had a problem since. I don't think it is suppose to work that way, but it did for me. I also use a Rpi3 w/2.5amp PSU.

Thanx @Milhouse for your answer,
but is generic build not only for pc? http://cvh.libreelec.tv/Test/dvbskys960/
Temporary, I have solved it as already described by me.

But calms me that the problem is known Smile

ya, I'd rather not. besides my multimeter says the psu is providing 5.2v, no fluctuations, so I would say it's more likely a code issue or maybe its the rp3 board.

Only for Info: I just updated my Pi3 to 302 and have also the yellow flash icon at boot.
I never noticed it before with my hardware.


Edit: Also my 2nd Pi3 shows for half a second the flash icon during boot after updating to 302.

CEC is fixed, and works for me (RPi3 & PanaTV) as it should.

I can also acknowledge that CEC is fixed, and works for me (Pi3 & AVR & PanaTV) as it should.
(In all previous versions in the last x month my Pana does not switch to AVR automatically when Kodi wakes up the TV & AVR explicit. With 302 it do as with the very old versions before.)

Yes "Generic" is the PC/x86 build, as this regression isn't RPi specific.

I do not think, because the problem occurs on RPi2 and RPi3.
after installing build of user @smp, [ here ] both RPi2 and RPi3 are working properly.
Builds with the newer kernel DVB-C works briefly, then there is no connection with HTCP Server. When I pulled out shortly DVB Stick from USB port, DVB-C working again for some time.
