    Maybe it boot to fast or splash is disabled. Check file /storage/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml for splash node inside.

    Hi,
    /storage/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml is not exist :D
    but is /storage/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml now, and nothing about splash settings :)

    Instead on my pc working if i put spleash on /.kodi/media/Splash.png.

    This in not problem i will search more :)

    It is true, openelec not support dongle 3g?

    Thanks.

    Then create it with correct content. But probably will not help to get splash visible.

    Probably doesn't have drivers enabled.

    Is it possible to setup this Openelec to work with LVDS screens or both the HDMI and LDVS at the same time? After I run the U-boot commands to switch to 15" LVDS touch I just get a blank screen. I would prefer to do dual screen at the same time.

    I don't know for both at the same time but LVDS is probably different video output set in uEnv.txt. Check that file in /flash folder.
    Not sure if device tree supports that. Don't have any display to test.

    Interesting. I though it would not. But seems I'm wrong ;)

    Anyone got the analog output running? Seems that the Procto Openelec supported this very well, did you get those drivers Vpeter?

    Just today the kernel sources were updated and now everything is there. Just need to port this driver to our kernel. Will continue work in next days.

    I though I will continue this evening but instead I'm helping my friend to make EoIP tuner to work on Mikrotik router. But of course because I newer did such thing it doesn't go according to plan.

    Okay sounds awesome! Good luck with EoIP :)

    Can you tell me exactly what you did so I can investigate little more? I assume that Arduino starts as soon power is applied to a board and doesn't reset and then must be powered again from userspace?

    Currently I'm working on a analog output and would like to fix two things at a time ;)

    Update: doesn't look good :( I really need some help on this...

    Sadly there will be no analog sound output with openelec. I'm trying to port the vt1613 driver from 3.10.9 to 3.14.xy kernel unsuccessfully. So I tried original udoo kernel with openelec and on my surprise analog output didn't work. That's why I'm not working on this thing anymore. Maybe one day someone will pick this again. On newer kernel...

    What solved the problem for me in the end is basically this

    This is surely not a proper fix. The problem is that this driver is setting GPIO pin 0 to high which is the arduino reset line and makes the arduino stop.

    Hi Vpeter,

    I'm using your OpenElec image for weeks now. This is really a stable image, i'm really pleased with it.

    What is the future of your image ? Is it going to reach an official release ?
    To me the image is perfect, don't get any bug. Now it would be nice to have sort of an "official support" with updated image a each OpenElec version.

    I hope that the Udoo Team will put this image in the official distribution of UDOO, many user have been waiting for a stable image of Kodi and now it is here, it is a big achievement.

    Thank you so much

    Just today I ask on github the last time if this will be merged or not. In any way I will continue working on it. But it will take more time for new images (like with 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 which I didn't build yet).

    Update: seems there is no interest in imx6 support for openelec according to github silence.

    Shevonar, I finaly touch the problem with resetting arduino. Instead of your patch I created another regulator in device tree imx6q-udoo.dts
    Code:
    		reg_sam3x_reset_disable: sam3x_reset_disable {
    			compatible = "regulator-fixed";
    			regulator-name = "sam3x_reset_disable";
    			gpio = <&gpio1 0 0>;
    			enable-active-low;
    		};
    which drives reset pin. With this arduino is not reseted when imx6 kernel starts or system reboots.

    But there is one small side effect: I don't know how to manually drives this gpio pin to reset arduino. Don't know if this is even needed. What do you think - I'm not familiar with arduino part? Also it doesn't stop when imx6 kernel stops. With your patch it restarts - so still runs after system is halted.

    When it works, it works great. But I'm having issues with the WiFi. Sometimes it doesn't connect, just keeps failing :/
    I had the same problem with the official distro of Linux last time I had it installed

    EDIT: It appears I have the quad not dual, so my mistake!

    I recently installed an external antenae for Wi-Fi, because getting onto the Internet was slow/drops/no connect. And the antenae makes a huge difference. Connects easily and stays connected. Very happy!
