Re: USB 3.0 OTG?

I see. I'm guessing it has similar limitations to dwc_otg, namely that it is meant to be used in either OTG mode or host mode with a single device attached, as it might be used in a set top box for example. Presumably the other data lines to enable USB 3 are disconnected on Pi 4? I wonder if they mi...

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

I'm running your build of Kodi 18.4 on my Pi 4 on Raspbian Buster Lite and everything looks good so far. :D Thanks for the systemd service def as well - I was missing that from my previous install on Pi 3B+ running Stretch.

Re: USB 3.0 OTG?

There is a disabled XHCI controller inside the SoC but it is host only and only 2 data lines are connected anyway so it can only run at USB 2.0 speeds. I couldn't get it to work last time I tried so YMMV. I had spotted mention of this controller before somewhere. Are the 2 data lines connected to t...

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

For anyone trying to get this working on Raspbian Buster Lite - you need two additional packages:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update && sudo apt install libegl1 libgles2
Probably kodi-bin needs these added as additional dependencies.

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Please add to your instructions that gpu_mem should not be set higher than 512MB, since this is untested by the folks at Raspberry Pi and may break things.

Re: Pi4 - HDMI Audio support?

I got the Pi4 before reading this post and was disappointed it doesn't pass thru Dolby TrueHD, etc. - at least with LibreELEC. If those are feature you already have on an earlier model of Pi, then it is entirely plausible that they will eventually be added to software running on the Pi 4. It's a ve...

Think I'm getting mixed up with the VLI chip's firmware update which I seem to remember reading can lower the SoC temperature slightly. Beta main EEPROM firmware is installed now and I can't detect any difference in the SoC temperature. I will try the v2 VLI update next.

That's true, but booting the device opens up a whole different can of worms, since absolutely everything is coming over the wifi.

Re: Raspberry Pi 3B+ - won't boot with keyboard and mouse attached

If the Apple keyboard is presenting sometimes as a USB mass storage device that would be enough to confuse the boot ROM in the Pi.

Re: Network boot over WiFi

With a wired connection you need physical access to the network to get in. With wifi you just need to sniff some packets and crack the password. Which is not specific to booting. If you're using WiFi you've already accepted this risk. Thus booting over WiFi is no more of a risk than doing anything ...
