  1. Did someone else notice the the color saturation is to high on HDMI if a Video is played? Test video watch temperature of CPU and add a heatsink! May be the is an option for HDMI to change this? Especially Faces in normal TV shows are far to red. DISPLAY=:0 mpv --vo=vdpau --hwdec=vdpau --hwdec-codecs=all --fs http://ow.ly/10tB0C Olso interesting would be to know how smooth the VIDEO rans is far to slow in ma case.
  2. I looks like there are more as one way to setup kodi on orange pipc. The latest version 17.1 of kodi with hardware exsaleration would be preferable. I wanted a setup where i could use the on board ir and some Remote i already own. Then an usb Keyboard. And i did not want that kodi starts at system start. I also wanted VNC be usable to do a login via VNC to be able to remote control from my Leptop. I did get Kodi 15.2 working but with drawbacks: Video is not smooth, not relay nice to view. VNC and IR did work and i could go back to the desktop to start internet browser or something else, all rather slow. Colors of the HDMI TV look not very normal to much red, if i compare it with the Fire-TV stick on with the newer kodi 17.1 is as well installed. (Beside this installation of kodi on the firer-TV stick was easy. Also a bit outdated Gide for installation: https://www.tweaking4all.com/home-theatre/xbmc/kodi-on-amazon-fire-tv-firestarter/ one needs the 32 bit version not the 64 bit of kodi. Drawback: It is android and no VNC and no USB Keyboard. Remote is the one that comes with Fire-stick) If someone want to use only the kodi 17,1 or 18 on orangepi there is a way to do it on a Armbian Server. Unfortunately preset info is in Russion language. And color and speed of Videos is bad as on the other setup https://ua3nbw.ru/all/kodi-17-1-krypton-na-orange-pi-s-opengl-es-2-0/ . An other approach is to use OPENelec. Kodi version is 15.1 i got it working with Keyboard and IR remote. Worse drawback no VNC possible since there is also no normal desktop root login. Speed of Videos was a little bit better color also bad. Remote control a bit easier to set up as on Armbin desktop. Uses also Lirc an ir ir_keytable. Kernal Modul for ir (modeprobe sunix-cir) must be loaded first by editing /storage/.config/autostart.sh lircd.conf is on a different place in /storage/.config/lircd.conf Lircmap.xml is on the same place as with Armbian installation. One can find everything in the OPENelec wiki. How to setup ssh, how to edit autostart.sh and how Remots can be set up. Note: In the wiki the circumstance that the IR modul must be loaded via Autostart.sh is not mentioned! Also missing is an explanation how lircd.conf and Lircmap.xml should link to each other. It is also possible to have multiple remotes as well in the Arrmbian or in the OPENelec. How? Make more as one lircd.conf file for each Remote control you want to use. Rename each file. Make a new lircd.conf file that contains only the includes for the other files. include "./lircd.conf.remotename" include "./lircd.conf.remotename2" Replace one line i each lircd.conf.remotename: name /etc/lircd.config (name /storage/.config/lircd.conf) to name remotenamex the name of your remote. This name must have a representation in the Lircmap.xml Here may example with thee remote controls LG, SAMSUNG, PHILIPS: lircd.conf.philips lircd.conf.lg lircd.conf lircd.conf.samsung Lircmap.xml More to the subject lirkd on armbian:
  3. I am looking for more fundamental background information. How is the armbian project organized? Is there a repository with tracing system as i am used to on other projects like https://freetz.org/wiki/freetz?
  4. What worked? This worked for me:
  5. Board name? On orangepipc+ ir red receiver is on board and the module used is named sunix-cir https://forum.armbian.com/index.php?/topic/4188-guide-configuring-orange-pi-pc-to-receive-ir-with-lirc
  6. It is also possible to use VNC Client on the PC and server on orange pipc+ to get the Screen of kodi to the PC. http://www.tightvnc.com/download/2.8.3/tvnjviewer-2.8.3-bin-gnugpl.zip extract the file tightvnc-viewer.jar and put it on the desktop or elsewhere to klick on it for starting. TightVNC is just a single java executable, needs java to be installed on the PC. On orange pi: sudo apt-get -y install x11vnc vnc4server xinetd vnc-java xfonts-base sudo x11vnc -storepasswd yourpassword /etc/x11vnc.pass This two lines are for starting. You can but this also to etc/rc.local so VNC starts every time the Linux is rebooted. vncserver # first time use a password has to be setup as well, just follow the Questions presented after invoking x11vnc -display :0 & My be this works fort you too.
  7. I also have orangepipc+ and i use the desktop version of ARMBIAN 5.25 stable Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS 3.4.113-sun8i i don't have an problem with firefox at all. I suggest to do an update.
  8. If someone has enough time to look into it, he should do it. I think this guy will keep on anyway, unfortunately he speaks Russian. I my native language is German. I don't have real need for kodi 18 and hardware acceleratean. I only did think it would make more sense to have the latest version of kodi with h/w acceleration. For me the kodi 15 on orange pi is all i need so far. Don't use it realy much but since i have this board i gave it a try. Had problems getting the IR control working but i fixed it.
  9. I tested this here, is some Russian page, his image works if you use orange pi only for kodi, i wanted it with the desktop. I use a heats-sink on the cpu. http://ua3nbw.ru/all/sborka-videopleera-mpv-with-hardware-decoding/ Page is a bit difficult to read because goole translates from Russian.
  10. I have kodi on ARMBIAN 5.25 stable Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS 3.4.113-sun8i orangepipc+ board running tested the latest version kodi alfa as well but kodi 17 and 18 don only work on a headless server with codi alone installed. Version 15 of Kodi can bi installed easy, had only some problem with ma remote control. See may thread about it:
  11. @LinuxUser I also have the same orangepipc+ and had the same problem. pleas red my thread about it.
  12. Guide: Configuring Orange PI PC to receive IR/InfraRed and fix Lirc I also show how VNC can be used to do remote control on orangepipc+ on the example of kodi. Should be the same on orangepipc boards. If a USB IR receiver is used the problem ma not be present at all, but i use the on-board IR receiver. Is dirty work around, if someone knows how to fix it correctly please tell! (I installed the latest version of LIRC 0.9.4b from the source code and compiled it, but it din not fix the problem. So i stay with the version ARMBIAN 5.25 stable Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS 3.4.113-sun8i comes with.) If the LIRC tool irw cant be started and reports: (See also the doku for ubuntu and lirk https://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Lirc/#lirc.fdi) No such file or directory The bug is present, and the lirc demon also want work. The directory /var/~run is a symbolic link and somehow the lirk demon has a problem with it. The proper way is to use a option for the lircd demon. There is an option for the demon to use a different output directory as the default /var/run/lirc --output <output socket> If used with option --output specified make a directory that lirc demon can use: mkdir /run/lirc (Unfortunately the tool irexec has no option for supplying a path to the socket. The newer lirc version 9.0.4b can use an environment variable for this.) The problem may only be present in some cases. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The following description is how one can test step by step that IR remote control is working: Make sure nothing is running stopping the process is needed: root@orangepipcplus:~# /etc/init.d/lirc stop [ ok ] Stopping lirc (via systemctl): lirc.service.

Only this script uses the file /etc/hardware.conf. This script is extremely suspect and may be one of the reasons way in some cases problems arise. Finally i set the variable LOAD_MODULES="false" and activated the modul in the file /etc/mudules. echo sunix-cir | sudo tee -a /etc/modules reboot. This led to the circumstance that the service stated at reboot. Have a look at /var/log/syslog to find out if the demon starts as it should. USING with kodi: If sunix-cir and lircd is working popper what it was not in may case and the hardware.conf is as it was from a clean install: sed -i s/'#DISABLE_KERNEL_SUPPORT="true"'/'DISABLE_KERNEL_SUPPORT="false"'/ /etc/lirc/hardware.conf; sed -i s/'START_LIRCD="false"'/'START_LIRCD="true"'/ /etc/lirc/hardware.conf; apt-get install kodi #install kodi systemctl daemon-reload && /etc/init.d/lirc stop rm -rf /etc/lirc/lircd.conf irrecord -H default -d /dev/lirc0 /etc/lirc/lircd.conf # Record your remote or use a config-file you already have.

I added the following three lines to /etc/rc.local before the final exit 0 if [ -d "/run/lirc" ]; then rm -Rf /run/lirc; fi mkdir -pv /run/lirc /usr/sbin/lircd --driver=default --device=/dev/lirc0 --uinput --output=/var/run/lirc/lircd --pidfile=/var/run/lirc/lircd.pid /etc/lirc/lircd.conf And edited the file /etc/modules by removing the # in front of sunix-cir to start sunix-cir modul at boot time. Or invoke this line to add an additional line. echo sunix-cir | sudo tee -a /etc/modules reboot You also can use an add-on in kodi to edit the keys in use. -> progamms -> add-ons -> Keymap Editor (install it first in kodi: system -> add-on -> install from repository -> Keymap Editor) Kodi Sound: Needs a additional file in /etc/asound.conf #See http://alpha6.ru/blog/2016/10/09/orange-pi-armbian-kodi/ pcm.snd_card { type hw card 1 device 0 } ctl.snd_card { type hw card 1 device 0 } pcm.dmixer { type dmix ipc_key 1024 ipc_perm 0666 slave.pcm "snd_card" slave { period_time 0 period_size 1024 buffer_size 4096 rate 48000 format S32_LE channels 2 } bindings { 0 0 1 1 } } It is also possible to use VNC Client on the PC and server on orange pipc+ to get the Screen of codi to the PC. http://www.tightvnc.com/download/2.8.3/tvnjviewer-2.8.3-bin-gnugpl.zip extract the file tightvnc-viewer.jar and put it on the desktop or elsewhere to klick on it for starting. TightVNC is just a single java executable, needs java to be installed on the PC. On orange pi: sudo apt-get -y install x11vnc vnc4server xinetd vnc-java xfonts-base sudo x11vnc -storepasswd yourpassword /etc/x11vnc.pass This two lines are for starting, can but done also via etc/rc.local so VNC starts ever time the Linux is rebooted. vncserver # first time use a password has to be setup as well, just follow the Questions presented after invoking x11vnc -display :0 & I also installed kodi with lirkd on OPENelec lirkd is there installed a bit different. The socket directory is not on a linked path. /var/run/ the path /run/ is used instead. This lead to the case that irw has not problem when it is invoked without explicit added path. I don't know why armbian must use this linked directory but insider may know why. Kernel modul also has to be loaded at startup by adding modeprobe sunix-cir to /storage/.config/autostart.sh.

  13. Additional info! There is absolutely nothing wrong with the WIFI if network manager and wicd is in use. My Problem was on my side. I connected with the PC via WIFI to the router and from the router also via WIFI to the orangepipc+ As i did show above if ports forwarding was set up in the router i could connect from outside and from my PC. but way not directly? In my fritz!box it war inhabited to communicate from one wifi interface to an other. First i configured the wifi on the orangepipc+ to a static address outside of the range DHCP uses. Then i had to go to the WLAN page of my fritzbox and activate the comunication between WIFI clients. On other routers this may be a setting like this: Wireless -> Advanced Wireless Settings -> AP Isolation
  14. So finally i found a way around the problem. Just to confirm all what i told above is true the behavior is not as expected. It is possible to use the wifi without eth0 configured if one uses some other way to to connect to the board for setup, in my case i used the SSH Terminal via serial link. Configured only the wifi with the nmtui tool as client. ( i t also works with the eth0 configured and disconnected lan wire) Set the power management of wifi to always on. By: To turn off power management, go to /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf and you will see [connection] wifi.powersave = 2 Change the 3 to a 2 and reboot. Then run iwconfig and if it worked you should see Power Management:off. Then i added the scripts below to /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/ cat 99set-reg-domain.sh #!/bin/bash status=`cat /sys/class/net/wlan0/operstate` /bin/bash -n /etc/default/crda && source /etc/default/crda if [[ $status == 'up' ]] then iw reg set $REGDOMAIN fi Don't know if it is relay needed, at this point still nothing changed. I could connect to the inter net from the orange pi pc + without problem but not from the PC to the board as before. Then i did some tests with wireshak. I had a look way pinging cant get across the router. i Uses damps from the router to look int the problem. Nothing could be fond. Tareceroute from orangepi board to the PC worked ping did not work.. Tacert from PC to the board did not work stopped at router. So it looks like the route is just broken in one point form router to the orange board. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ So i stated to setup an DYNsys entry on the router. Entered the port forwarding and finally all can be reached from my PC with the correct port entry's in the router. But i cant see ans reason way it should not work without DYNsys and port-forwarding on the local net. May be i am wrong and this is just the correct way to do it. If someone can tell me where my conclusions are wrong pleas to it. Thank to tKaiser for Answering and all other an the subject to get this all working. here are some more pictures of my setup.
  15. Thank you for taking time to answer! Unfortunately this does not work i use a serial console link via putty for testing and i also checked just to configure wifi without eth0 no way to connect. I have red the thread you did post before and tried everything suggested. Behavior is the same as with both interfaces configured. Just wifi configured i can ping from router to the board and from the board to the router (W900 with serial console connected). i can ping from router to my pc and from my pc to the router but not form orangepi pc + board to the PC. Absolutely no problem to connect from orangepi pc + board to the internet via wifi only. Ok i checked all again but there is definitely a problem. All is as i explained.
