Openelec for MatrixTBS

[quote="vpeter"]So I prepared few files which makes MatrixTV multiboot capable. Two files are replaced (ucl2.xml, u-boot-mx6q-sabresd.bin) and two files are extra (u-boot-matrix.imx, uEnv.txt). Files from archive TBS-MatrixTV-V1.0.1.0-multiboot.zip must be copied and overwrite to folder "OS Firmware" in original MatrixTV files from TBS-MatrixTV-V1.0.1.0.zip.

When this is flashed to eMMC new multiboot u-boot is already there and also uEnv.txt file. MatrixTV boots as before. But now we can also boot anything from SD card. Like OpenELEC ;)
Then only SD card for OpenELEC must be made.

mikebzh44, can you blacklist internal gpio IR receiver and reboot? Maybe then you will get IR working.
Also try mode2 program. And you still need to use first autostart.sh I posted.

[code]echo "blacklist gpio_ir_recv" >>/storage/.config/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf[/code]

Wo, It is great, thanks so much for the effort you made to our matrix. :)

Kind Regards

[quote="vpeter"]IR receiver is that black thing on right side? Where is it connected?

So this is just external IR receiver connected on GPIO port.
I was testing this remote thing only on matrix v2 with build in receiver. Will check if also work on matrix v1 with same approach using external ir receiver on gpio port. I think it will because both matrix using same input pin.

vpeter: Hi, is eMMC faster than class 10 SDHC card?
mikebzh44: Do you have board v1.3? Because vpeter's patch works for my built-in black IR receiver on 1.3.

Which entry did you setup ?

What are the result of this commands on your box ?

[code]
[root@matrixtv ~]# ir-keytable

[root@matrixtv ~]# for i in /sys/class/input/input* ; do echo -n "$(basename "$i"): "; cat "$i/name"; done
[/code]

Thanks for your help.

:o Hey, I've not done much .. apart from annoy the other Peter with stupid questions!

vpeter has done an excellent job and I am very grateful to him .... OpenELEC makes the Matrix soooo much better!

Oh, I've got my psu working again, so will complete my write-ups soon ... when I've had a play with vpeter's new boot! :)

First patch is working for me.
When using MatrixTV I choose lirc_matrix.
But, with version 1.0.1.0 of MatrixTV I've got problems with inputlircd, so I had to disable it and rely on pure lircd.
About cmds output, I will answer later.

So, did you use this patch :

viewtopic.php?f=155&t=8859&start=150#p32156

I'm using a MCE remote :

but you are using a TBS one.

How did you disable inputlircd and use lircd instead ?

Thanks.
