#1155051 Update rootfs on Vu+ Solo 4K

Posted by betacentauri on 21 January 2020 - 17:29

From your PM I see:

Found mountpoint for rootfs file: /mnt/usb/sda1

The empty cmdline is also not ok and not normal.

Both imply that some kind of multiboot mechanism was installed by the user. I heard that that was available for solo4k, but I never used or really saw it.


If the user has detached the USB stick / HDD(/mnt/usb/sda1), he should attach it again. If root is still present on that stick/hdd, box should work properly again.


If that's not possible, please post output of "mount". Is the /dev/mmcblk0p4 used for rootfs?

Please don't do it yet. My idea would be to flash a proper kernel (from OpenPLi). The kernel will use /dev/mmcblk0p4 as rootfs. It works if really a rootfs is available on /dev/mmcblk0p4. If not, we might have a bigger problem than before. So better wait and think twice before bricking the box.

But maybe with proper kernel, USB flashing works again....

Du könntest mal probieren ob ein Neustart einmal am Tag das Problem behebt. Wenn ja, geht der Box vielleicht der Speicher(RAM) aus. Ist aber nur geraten.

On a quad4k you can watch the recording.

#1124460 [eDVBPESReader] ERROR reading PES

Posted by betacentauri on 10 November 2019 - 12:53

I don’t think the “ERROR reading PES” errors are related. I already saw these messages without a crash.
The crash seems to be in libavcodec, but it can be that the calling part already delivers bad data. So this backtrace doesn’t really help.
If you have the knowledge disable the signal handler in e2. Then a core dump is created during next crash. And this core can be analyzed with gdb.
Or add tons of debug messages to find out where it crashes.

You also need the other patch.

#1115784 [7.2rc] no autostart if i insert a dvd in my usb dvd-rw drive

Hi Pike,


I cannot test as I don't have a USB DVD drive. I have not much ideas. Only these:

Have you also installed UDF and ISO9660 kernel modules? As these are not compiled into the kernel.

Did it work before on VU ultimo4k with 7.1 or older images?




#1103905 error to install plugin BoxPirates Panel.ipk

Posted by betacentauri on 19 September 2019 - 17:48

It's not OpenPLi problem. Ask the author of the plugin to adapt it (if he want's that the plugin runs under OpenPLi). We haven't created the plugin and don't have the source code.

@Persion Prince: In latest busybox "ls -e" is not supported any longer. It was removed by busybox developers: https://github.com/m...85b31f515ca670b

Can you rewrite the plugin so that -e is not used?

#1098246 youtube plugin no sound

Posted by betacentauri on 5 September 2019 - 06:57

Problem is another. YouTube delivers 2 separate streams. One for video and one for audio. Normal e2 with gstreamer cannot handle it. But there is a workaround to get it working. But it only works for non hisilicon boxes as hisilicon boxes use a special library for hardware decoding.
And this special library cannot handle it.
It can help if you use very low resolution. Afaik you can select the resolution in the plugin. But this might not help for every video.
Or install service app. But then you most likely don’t use hw decoding anymore.
Or use Mediaportal.

#1094758 ZGEMMA H9 TWIN problem with HD satellite channels Picture delay

Posted by betacentauri on 24 August 2019 - 15:06

What exactly do you mean with delay?
1-2 seconds slow motion when you switch to a channel? That is normal for all hisilicon boxes.

While e2 is running? E2 prevents other applications from reading the event devices (EVIOCGRAB). Don’t ask me why ;)

You don’t ask for support? Why are you here?
And clone is a well known term here. 99% know what it means and it seems you not.

Mod please close the thread. It’s totally useless.

Ich muss hier auch zurück rudern. Es sieht so aus, dass die Box nicht in den Deep Standby fährt, wenn ein Client verbunden ist:
