RPI3: general discussion

Post by warpme »


Recently i prepared working image for RPI3: https://github.com/warpme/minimyth2/releases

If You want to see how it goes - pls go here for install instructions: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=3540

NOTE: above images are for current mythtv-master (as only current master has v4l2_m2m & v4l2_request support)....
There will be no images for mythtv-31 due no v4l2 support in this mythtv version.

Also - for any discussion/questions related to MiniMyth2 on RPI3 - pls use this thread :-)

Some remarks:
-image is build with mainline kernel (not RPI downstream kernel). Reason: I want to have single code base for all platforms (armv7/aarch64/x86/x86_64).
-image is for RPI3/RI4 so both should work without problems.
-video rendering configuration in included minimyth.conf is for EGLFS with direct rendering to DRM planes. This is selected as most effective rendering pipeline option. EGLFS/DRMBUF mode is not supported by Qt WebKit - so html5 video playback in MythBrowser crashes. If you need this functionality - pls switch to X11 rendering.

Happy watching!
