AMD Ryzen 3 2200G

Post by wesnewell » Wed Aug 15, 2018 2:56 pm

Been running an amd phenom II system with built in GF8200 graphics since 2009. Not really any complaints and it still runs well with 16G of ram. Just thought it was time to upgrade and I'm considering the ryzen 3 2200G with built in vega graphics. Anyone here running such a system with mythtv? Any drawbacks to the vega graphics as far as mythtv goes? Not worried about anything but mythtv playback. I don't really play any high graphics games. Would like to get ready for 4K HD with 1080 hd being phased out in the next few years. Thoughts?

If you need de-interlacing, you might want to hold off. As far as I know mythtv only supports HW deinterlacing on nvidia cards (VDPAU). VAAPI HW deinterlacing isn't fully supported. I understand an ffmpeg re-base might be in the works, so it might be coming soon.

Quick follow up. Got the new mb, ram, and cpu yesterday. Put it on a bench test, and came right up into bios. Then hooked up an old 16.4 mythbuntu frontend drive to it and it booted to the desktop without a problem. No problem I thought, so today I moved it into my mythtv server running 18.04.1. Hit the power switch and after a while got the mb logo, with options for booting, bios, etc. Problem was it wouldn't go pass there. Not even into bios. After disconnecting usb devices, hard drives and most everything else with no luck I removed my PCIe tuner cards and then it booted straight to bios. No problem. Wrong after connecting the hard drives back, xubuntu 18.04.1 wouldn't boot. A screen full of errors, and hang. It was getting to the point where I needed to start recordings for the night, so threw the old mb on the desk and pieced it back together for an open air system. Looks like I'll be waiting a while to use the new system. Fun fun fun, not!

Well I got a running system now. Since I couldn't get display to work properly with 18.04.1 install, I booted to 16.04 thst was on the drive and then did an in place upgrade to 18.04 and it installed 4.15 kernel. That wouldn't boot either, but could boot the old 4.10 kernel. Started looking in the bios and found it was set to boot with a PCIe card and not the internal gpu. After changing that to use the internal gpu it would boot with the new 4.15 kernel. Still couldn't use the 18.04.1 iso for a new install though as it split the screen so you couldn't see the install screens properly. Anway, I got a frontend installed on it and it's working fine. Haven't done much else with it. Will try a new install when 18.04.2 is released. Good until then.

Rather than wait for 18.04.2 I decided to start upgrading kernel versions. First tried 4.17.11, then 4.17.19, and lastly 4.18.5, which is the latest as of today. That seems to fix a lot of problems I was having with booting. Also had to upgrade the bios version to 5.0 to allow recognition of my tuner cards, and even start the boot process. Will probably give a switch to the new system sometimes later this week. Maybe third time will be a charm. For the record, the new MB is an asrock AB350 PRO4. Trying an internet upgrade showed none available for the P4.60 it came with. But on their website it showed 5.0 available so I dloaded and installed it and that's what let the system at least start the boot process with the tuner cards in it. It would lock up solid before that.

Success, mostly. Moved everything over to the new system last night and it's up and running good now with 4.18.6 kernel. The only problem now is most of the time it won't boot or restart properly (hangs during boot). But pressing the computer reset button will boot to the grub menu and starting it again from there 99% of the time boots properly. For me, that's not a big problem as this backend server system runs 24/7 anyway. Hopefully, the kernel builders will get this working better in the near future. Still can't install xubuntu 18.04 or 18.04.1 because the screen is screwed up. But there's way to get around that.

Finally, with the 4.19 kernel everything works like it should. and Manjaro 18.0, which comes with the 4.19 kernel will install from the iso.

What playback profile do you use? Do you enable "separate video modes for GUI and TV playback"?

I just got a 2400G and everything seems to be fine at 3840x2160@60Hz, except separate video modes doesn't work with the "opengl" renderer (corrupt video). It does work when I set the renderer to "xv-blit' but there's tearing. I'd like to get separate video modes at least for 1080p24 (Bluray) video to avoid judder.

I use Normal mode, but only at 1080. Haven't even tried any other modes. Haven't made the jump to 4KHD yet.

Just to check the chipset you are using is B350? and Kernel v4.19
I assume if I stick with Ubuntu and upgrade my Kernel I should be good?
And are you using HDMI audio ?

MB is Asrock AB350 Pro4. Using bios 5.40 now but I see 5.60 is out now. Currently using kernel 5.0.2. I did use hdmi audio for a while, but the tv speakers sucked so using external speakers now straight from the PC. Just using hdmi for video. IIRC, the boot hangs stopped with 4.18 kernels and later

Hi
I have an AMD Ryzen 3 2200G too, got it about 2 weeks ago and the one thing I am struggling with is video quality! If I use the "HQ Quality" setting then all is fine but as soon as I try to use one of the VAAPI or VAAPI2 settings for video the video gets very blocky:

viewtopic.php?t=1373#p6641 seemed to show something similar.

Any specific settings that work well ? VDPAU settings seem to fail I think.

I'm using the Normal playback setting without any mods to it. Same 2200G cpu running 5.0.6 kernel on 18.04LTS on B350 Pro4 mb, but mythtv V30.
