Openelec for MatrixTBS

Re: Openelec for TBS Matrix

Postby vpeter » Thu Sep 11, 2014 2:34 am

It's time for new OpenELEC version for our TBS Matrix. After some consideration about future of this project we decided to move to common iMX6 project for OpenELEC which will cover all iMX6 based devices.

And here are two images: one Helix based and one Gotham based.
The installation is simple: just download the file, unpack and run MfgTool2-reinstall_vX.bat. As before.

Download link: http://l.bitcasa.com/yvfGcXvL

For tvheadend 3.9 there are some problems and service doesn't start. To fix that some folders must be deleted/moved.
This needs to be run in ssh console:
[code]systemctl stop service.multimedia.tvheadend
mv /storage/.xbmc/addons/service.multimedia.tvheadend/xmltv-config /storage/.xbmc/addons/service.multimedia.tvheadend/xmltv-config-orig
rm -fr /storage/.xbmc/userdata/addon_data/service.multimedia.tvheadend/xmltv
systemctl start service.multimedia.tvheadend[/code]

Hello everyone,
First of all thank you for the excellent work you do on this case.
I just installed OpenELEC-TBS-Matrix-iMX6.arm-devel-20140910145440-r19210-g2d9c62b-Gotham and I have some bug

And with this version in the audio setup, the SPDIF option no longer appears at the passthrough in XBMC? So no way for me to read DolbyDigital or DTS content.
And when I want to shut down or restart via XBMC I see that it will run but the box does not power off.
I am forced to turn it off from ssh

Have you any idea?

This I must check.

Seems I forgot to include one patch for this to work. Will fix that in a day or two.

Gotham with fixed shutdown: http://l.bitcasa.com/nEsFIXJS

The problem with SPDIF is harder. I noticed that Linux kernel we use doesn't have spdif in it's device tree for sabresd platform. I'm trying to fix that. I wish manufactures would have more interest in supporting basic things. Seems no one cares about sabresd imx6 platform and tbs matrix board.

I haven't used the latest Gotham release from tonight, but the one you posted a couple of days ago; doesn't seem to activate SSH (and yes, I selected it). Also adding the ssh_enable textfile and rebooting the device didn't seem to work.

Can anybody reproduce this with their 2.1 edition of the MatrixTBS? Also, does this edition have a regular kernel so we can use non-TBS DVB-devices?

SSH is enabled by default from bootloader arguments. It should always work - assuming the system boots properly.

Openelec uses it's own kernel. With iMX6 project we have 3.14.18 the same as Cubox-i use. There are some dvb tuners enabled. Of course there will be no support for TBS tuners (which is little ironic).

Gotham with shutdown and spdif: http://l.bitcasa.com/wU2Kid3S

Works with my equipment.

Helix is not updated. If someone wants that let me know.

[edit]
I got it working:

I added coherent_pool=2M to the bootargs in the uEnv-matrix-v2.txt
[/edit]

I upgraded my Matrix with the latest version and that seems to have solved my issues with SSH. However, my DVB-S cards were detected but didn't show up in the /dev/dvb tree:
