    Hi datrh,

    It’s been a few weeks using your build with great satisfaction. Everything is smoother now. I don’t miss Android that much!

    I do miss the analog audio output. It’s actually making me listen to less music than I used to. I tend to turn the tv on and then, no music. Heheh.

    I saw this in the settings. Are you sure you don’t want to go again in trying to find a way to make it work? Just asking :p


    Thank you for all your efforts :)

    don't forget in LibreElec settings to activate the bluetooth (kodi => settings=>libreelec =< and somewhere there , there's a setting for the bluetooth)

    use "winscp" to connect to the minix box and create the folder.
    i don't use this addon so i can't give you a lot of help about this.

    the linux is "ok" for analog audio (there's the driver).
    it's all about the "device tree".
    as it doesn't work for the x8-h, it's something i can test myself.
    just need the time to do it.

    I have trouble installing this to an sdcard to use with my X8H+. The only version that works is:
    None of the other versions work, either X8HP-Gen1 or X8H-Series.

    The way I install them is:
    1. Burn the .img.gz to the sdcard using the libreelec tool.
    2. Copy boot.scr to LIBREELEC_STORAGE/boot (make the folder first).
    3. Insert the card into the device and turn it on (without pressing the reset button, since the bootloader is already installed).

    First, the Minix logo is shown. Then, Libreelec logo is shown. Then, there's text about resizing the partition or whatever, and then it says rebooting in 5, 4, 3... When it reboots, it goes through the Minix logo, Libreelec logo, then the version is shown in the upper right corner and then: 1.3 boots Kodi, other versions do - nothing. Black screen, resolution switched to 720p-60, no response.

    I tried installing the 1.3 version, booting it, then copying a .tar of a newer version in LIBREELEC_STORAGE/.update and making a .nocompat file. That doesn't work either. Upon reboot, it goes through the installation procedure without hiccups, and just ends up black after rebooting, the same way it does when installing it with the libreelec tool.

    I also tried installing 1.6 to an USB stick (unplugging all of the other USB devices), and the same thing happens: it goes from the LibreElec boot screen to black screen.

    Any idea what's happening? Is there a way to enable some sort of logging? At least, show the boot process in detail instead of showing the Libreelec boot screen?

    The TV's a regular 2009 1080p TV by Grundig.

    Solved it.
    It was a ****ing CEC problem. I had to boot it connected to a regular PC monitor, disable CEC entirely and restart my regular stupid Grundig TV (its CEC implementation is a colossal piece of shit).

    please give me a solution.
    after a long time i found the image to update the kodi on my minix x8-h to libreelec krypton and decide to write it on internal.
    My problem is that i can't install acestream,i try some guides but with no luck,at last i decide to reboot from recovery but the minix boot always to libreelec and not to android, i try the toothpick method and try to install native firm 009 but i got a message that i have the newer version off img and i still can't boot to android.
    so is there a way to make acestream work,or second solution boot back to android firmware?
    sorry for poor english

    You have overwritten Android, while installing LE to internal storage.
    Use the Amlogic USB Burning Tool to flash Android.

    I’ve bought a cheap USB sound card and plugged it in the Minix box. I could switch sound output as shown in the photo. It worked out of the box. Still the sound quality was nothing compared to the one I once was able to get directly from the X8-HP. It had some random “clicks” and felt “hollow”.
    The other problem is that I still need to turn the TV on to switch sound output because when selecting the USB sound card no audio output was played by HDMI.


    I was wondering if you found a possible solution for the included analogue output to work...

    Anyone ever experienced audio sync problem?
    I had this strange problem with "dark" tv shows x264 1080p webrip, the video would suddenly gives a small beep sound, jumps to a scene few seconds ahead, or simply not synced of the voice in the movie and what we hear from the speaker...
    This does not happen when I played the same exact video files using my android phone....
    What could be the problem?
