Re: Has anyone tested how the Raspi 4 does with Netflix?

Kodi on rasberry OS works fine with Neflix 1080p. You just have to install the "inputstream.adaptive" add-on. Go to the plugin configuration and it will install wivedevine for you. Netflix for Kodi is not a sanction plugin and it is nowhere near as polished as Netflix on Roku. Might want to install ...

Re: minidlna at boot

Check to make sure it is set to start at boot with systemctl is-enabled minidlna If not enabled with systemctl enable minidlna If it is but you still need to restart service than it is likely starting before DHCP has acquired an address. Edit the startup config with sudo systemctl edit minidlna and ...

Re: Exiting Kodi - Delay

Kodi is just slow to exit. It is the same on my PC, Linux or Windows. The TV is most likely turning off because of a TV power-saving setting at loss of signal. You can check your CEC settings just to make sure a cec command isn't being sent by Kodi Under System -> Input Devices -> Peripherals -> CEC...

Re: how to compile ffmpeg with hardware acceleration support

The c files have nothing to do with the linker. There are 2 possibilities. Either the library its trying to link to is not in the search path. Can be added by putting the path in $LD_LIBRARY_PATH or adding a file with it to /etc/ld.so.conf.d/ The second is that its trying to link to a library that i...

Re: streaming music from my usb hdd?

Tons
The simplest is to setup the pi as a NAS (network attached storage) server with the samba software.
Lots of guides on how to setup samba nas out there. The device will simply show up as a network drive.
You could also use subsonic to set it up to stream to anywhere over the internet.

You answered your own questions, it consumes 24 Watts.
At 12c a kWh it will cost you ~$25 a year.

Since the only difference is the TV than the most likely conclusion is that it is a problem with the TV.

Since its just yourself connecting from your personal devices why not implement Key-Based Authentication. It is simple to setup and not having to type a password is very convenient, especially on mobile devices.

Careful! Iptables starts getting flaky at around 27,000 rules.
Learned that the hard way when my system became practically unresponsive with 99% utilization whenever fail2ban tried adding a new rule.

Re: RPi4: 4k60 video on one hdmi, audio pass through on other?

As long as your audio receiver supports surround LPCM over HDMI there is no need for passthrough. The audio signal will be decoded by the Raspberry and sent over raw LPCM multichannel.

Re: known good usb wifi for 1B with raspbian buster?

Sounds like your issue is with hostapd rather then with the wifi card.
Post hostapd.conf and lets see if we can figure it out
cat /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

vnc is a protocol.
You don't have to replace the vnc server on the raspberry to use a different vnc client on windows

There seems to be a network-online service so

After=network.target
with
After=systemd-networkd-wait-online.service
Requires=systemd-networkd-wait-online.service

then execute

Re: How do I mount NAS Network Shares

damn. the script starts after networking but it is likely networking up simply initializes networking and doesn't wait for it to be accessible.
Will have to modify script to make sure we have network access before mounting.
