Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Tried another 4k video and it played alright except for a small hiccup in the beginning (without any entries in the logs unless they are somewhere else instead of dmesg). But I did go to menu and every movement caused a blackout from which the device recovered. Other than that it played fine but the...

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

I am glad that you fixed your problem. This would probably be fixed sooner if you and the other user posted the full debug log because it provides all the info about the user system, like kernel and firmware version, which are relevant in this case. We (I and the devs) cannot test everything in eve...

Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Hey I had the same problem as xuhcc. When I played 4k x265 videos with Kodi, it crashed GPU with this error: [ 66.991652] [vc_sm_ioctl_alloc]: failed to allocate memory on videocore (status: 0, trans_id: 53) [ 66.991660] [vc_sm_ioctl_alloc]: failed to allocate "CGPUMEM" data (-12) - type 1, base 171...

Re: Raspberry pulling more power when an HDD spins down on USB 3.0

I came back home today and it seems that Raspberry actually lowered the energy usage by 1,3 W in comparison to the state just after spin down. Apparently I didn't look long enough.
Or maybe my kill-a-watt isn't too bright. Sorry for false alarms

Raspberry pulling more power when an HDD spins down on USB 3.0

Hey, I mentioned this on another thread but it wasn't main topic there. I have an HDD in an enclosure connected to Raspberry. While connected to USB 3.0, the drive is spinning (but no reads/writes), kill-a-watt shows power consumption of 5 watts. Then the drive spins down instead of going down, powe...

Re: Issues with wireless mouse and keyboard when USB 3.0 HDD plugged in

I mean my kill-a-watt may be just retarded but I'm really wondering what is going on here. Why is there higher power consumption at the wall when the disk is not spinning, it doesn't seem to make sense to me to be honest. Computers do a lot of stuff in the background, so it's hard to measure small ...

Re: Issues with wireless mouse and keyboard when USB 3.0 HDD plugged in

Thanks for the help guys. Didn't think to try that but it did help. I have a less than 10cm extension cable and will get one just a tiny bit longer at work. I did think about interference in this whole thing for a moment but more in the context or one cable attenuating the other. Really had no idea ...

Issues with wireless mouse and keyboard when USB 3.0 HDD plugged in

Hey, I have a pretty standard wireless keyboard and mouse set from DELL, KM636 and only when using Raspberry 4 do I have issues with range. I'm basically sitting 2 metres from the receiver and lose key strokes or mouse jumps around. I had no problem whatsoever when I was using my 3B (from like 3 met...

Raspberry Pi not booting 1 in 5 times from secondary HDMI port number

Hey, I found a problem with RPi 4. I'm not sure if this is my hardware or software so if you guys could check it out for me, that would be great. What I do: 1. Plug HDMI into second HDMI port (one further away from USB-C port) 2. Plug in power 3. If it boots, restart until it happens What happens: 1...
