CoreElec Minix U9-H

I experience the opposite. Smoother interface of kodi better playback and better functionality of screen settings and auto display switching.
With a stream add on movies playing smooth. All movies play smooth that are on my NAS.

What is your setup? with or without a NAS. How is your NAS configured.

Second is that the CE still a beta version of Kodi leia
You can try stable version of Kodi 17.6
There are also streaming plugins that can make things smoother I read someday.
Or try LibreELEC if you experience the same.

Try settings on display, on network samba, or nfs

3th this is still custom rom on your minix but it should work.
My setup is with NAS my book live and Denon x1400
It reads all formats in android 17.6 on Minix as it is on CE and managed to get streaming in CE but clared all white list resolution
Dont know is picture quality a bit better on CE 8955
Most off problems is with pvr iptv simple and constant freezing

I have CE running on a USB. The screen fit is now correct. I can't put the GUI on 4K, when i do it just blacks out for a second once a while. So I keep the Kodi GUI on 1920x1080P/60Hz.

It plays really very smooth and 10min skipping is also fast. Couldn't skip 10min with 4K/Atmos movies on Minix FW008. So the streams are flawless.

Only thing for me now to figure out is the controls. On Minix FW008 i cacn use the stop and pause buttons on my Logitech Harmony One remote. On CE those buttons don't work and i just have to use the OK button. This is kind of anouying because then you have to click more often.

It would be nice if the latest CE had also a Kodi 17.6 build in. I miss the play and stop function with my remote and also i think CE is switching of the Minix every time when i shut it down. On Minix own it is going into sleep.

I am getting a message on the screen: update available... downloaded...
Should I update with the downloaded file and how do I do it?
I am running Coreelec from sd card

I downloaded 8.95.6 yesterday to give it a try. I thought it should be good, seeing as how it is release candidate 2.

<Never mind. My bad, I forgot to replace the dtb.img file with the correct Minix U9-H file. :rolleyes: >

On the plus side, the skins seem to be working now. Oh, and the A2 remote power off issue still exists.

For the update I power on the MINIX
Make network connection to the minix update folder.
\\<yourIP\update
logon with admin, admin
place .tar file in it.
reboot Kodi and you are good to go.

Mine updated automatically on reboot.
The only problem is that the "search" function in Exodus add-on has stopped working. I have read in some other forums that this might be due to some addons are not updated for Kodi Leila?

There must have been an update on CE or Kodi 18 because now i cant use my Logitech Harmony One anymore to navigate thru Kodi.
I got the same problem with my harmony Elite... still figuring out or they have broken it...
For now i use the minix remote control.
Still think the CE kodi of playback is best and smooth.

One of the disadvantage of beta's, RC.. :confused:

CE forum:
We haven’t removed the remote maps, we just had to disable them by default, that is why running 1 command gets them working again permanently.
We had to do this as a result of unifying the builds, CoreELEC was taken from 6 different update tars, which took hours to build each one, down to 2, so it has made life much easier for the developers.
Unfortunately the remote codes of the aforementioned devices conflicted with the Khadas remote maps so they had to be disabled by default.

OK took me a while but here is the procedure to ad remote of MINIX and Harmony Elite (maybe the controls are same of other harmony's)

Links:
https://discourse.coreelec.org/t/how-to-configure-ir-remote-control/31
https://discourse.coreelec.org/t/coreelec-9-0-x-remote-files/363/42

MINIX remote control you can try:
https://discourse.coreelec.org/t/coreelec-8-95-6/2566

You need Putty and WinSCP is handy
Logon with SSH (putty or WINSCP)
username = root
password = coreelec

- Test of minix remote you can try when loged in on putty
Code:
echo "meson-ir * minix_neo" > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg
restart Kodi
other wise use MINIX zip and folow the procedure like harmony elite below

Harmony Elite remote
- Unzip the elite.zip on you computer
- Logon with WinSCP on you Minix
- Go to directory (from root) /etc/rc_keymaps
- Put the files rc_maps.cfg and elite into this directory
- Logon with Putty
Code:
#                  CoreELEC                  #
#            https://coreelec.org            #
##############################################

CoreELEC:~ # systemctl stop kodi
CoreELEC:~ # systemctl stop eventlircd

CoreELEC:~ # ir-keytable -a /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg -s rc0
Old keytable cleared
Wrote 27 keycode(s) to driver
CoreELEC:~ # systemctl start eventlircd
CoreELEC:~ # systemctl start kodi
when you in putty you also can get the codes of any remote.
replace the codes in the elit file en reload this like above.

Code:
##############################################################################
EXAMPLE GET CODES FROM REMOTE
##############################################################################
CoreELEC:~ # ir-keytable -t
Testing events. Please, press CTRL-C to abort.
>>>>>>>  JUST PRESS THE BUTTONS ON REMOTE see codes apear like below  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
1064.450930: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x140
1064.450930: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
1090.541925: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x104
1090.541925: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
It cost a bit of time but with these files and only reload them it's good and quick to do.
