    vfd_chars='0,1,2,3,4'
    
    #dot_bits:
    # Order of dot bits. Typical configurations:
    # Display Type 0, 1 usually has Alarm, USB, Play, Pause, Col, Ethernet, Wifi dots
    # Alarm = 0, USB = 1, Play = 2, Pause = 3, Col = 4, Eth = 5, Wifi = 6
    # Display Type 2 usually has APPS, USB, SETUP, CARD, Col, HDMI, CVBS dots
    # APPS = 0, USB = 1, SETUP = 2, CARD = 3, Col = 4, HDMI = 5, CVBS = 6
    # Display Type 3 Power, LAN, Col, Low Wifi, High Wifi
    # N/A = 0, N/A = 1, Power = 2, LAN = 3, Col = 4, Low Wifi = 5, High Wifi = 6
    
    vfd_dot_bits='0,1,2,3,4,5,6'
    So I was interested in your vdf.conf..

    Well, as I know the fd826 addon is only available (and working?!) in Kodi 18/Leia builds, but not in Jarvis or Krypton..from which repo did you install it? You got a link or a zip of the fd826addon?!
    You can find all the necessary here :
    https://forum.libreelec.tv/thread/11...5866#post85866

    You forgot something important in your migration of libreelec in dual rom.
    You must clear the cached dtb and kernel files in android :
    rm /cache/libre/*.img
    Otherwise the dtb used will be the one in the cache not the one you put in /system/libre/, so the display can't work as expected !

      Agree. If you don't need Android, stay away from this LibreElec dual boot, video stutters like hell. Install LibreElec to mSD card, it works great. Check LibreElec forums for instructions. If you need a 100% compatible device tree, feel free to dm me.

          Dear folks, I am interested in dual boot image and read there were some issues with bricked devices...

          Latest build 201803xxx works? Can I flash it?

            Can you explain what to change and which files you need ?
            I think i found some docs from you http://freaktab.com/forum/tv-player-...460#post723460 and will try that later.
            Do you still have dual boot after that ?

              Hi,
              I have a little problem, because my box's IR LED is faulty, (doesn't react to any IR remote command) and I can't bring up the reboot menu. Therefore I can't reboot to LibreELEC. Is there any command that I can run in terminal emulator which reboots my box in LibreELEC? I've tried "reboot update" and "reboot recovery" but both calls recovery.
              How can I start my box in LibreELEC without remote controller?
              Thanks.

                    ..in that post all needed files are mentioned and yes sure, it will stay an dualboot rom after that, but with the new libre(android isn't changed)

                      4. connect via ssh, remount flash writable and copy via scp all files:

                      Code:
                      ssh root@192.168.1.55 #sure use your IP with the password "libreelec"
                      on Prompt of libreelecbox enter:
                      Code:
                      mount -o remount,rw /flash #to make flash writable
                      exit #to exit ssh
                      now copy the four files:
                      Code:
                      scp remote.conf root@192.168.1.55:/storage/.config/remote.conf
                      scp SYSTEM root@192.168.1.55:/flash/SYSTEM
                      scp kernel.img root@192.168.1.55:/flash/libre/kernel.img
                      scp dtb.img root@192.168.1.55:/flash/libre/dtb.img
                      5. reboot libre and be happy!
                      thanks you very much for the upgrade procedure.
                      I updated the 20180125 with latest coreelec.
                      It works much better (no more frame drop) except the remote configuration.

                      Looking at stock 20180125 remote.conf location, I found this :
                      /etc/amremote/remote.conf
                      /flash/etc/remote.conf
                      /tmp/remote.conf


                      none in /storage/.config/remote.conf.

                      After coreelec upgrade, the kernel doesn't seems to load this file.

                      I tried to move it to /etc/amremote/remote.conf
                      but same result.

                        ..as the path "/etc/amremote" is inside of the compressed archive, you can't remount it rw. Also it is normal that on a fresh system is no remote.conf present in "/storage/.config/remote.conf", but libreelec should search there for a proper remote.conf you place there. I don't know if there are differences in path for coreelec, but usually the place for custom/userspace remote.conf has to be /storage/.config/ and with the remote.conf from zip the original tanix tx3 mini remote works for me and two friends.. Check if Coreelec uses maybe the new remote-service..

                          yes, it's a completly different mecanism :
                          https://discourse.coreelec.org/t/lib...mote-files/363

                          and itdoesn't work like libreelec :
                          https://discourse.coreelec.org/t/a95...5w-issue/326/1
                          the remote.conf is not used anymore.
                          It's weird, in the 20180125, the meson/lirc drivers are not loaded.

                          $ ir-keytable -t
                          No devices found

                          I didn't find any solution for now
                          If only I could get rid of those dropped frame, it would be ok.

                            ..hmm, as the 20180125 Rom comes with libreelec krypton (17.6) it sure uses the traditional mechanism for remote, so a user remote.conf is used if placed in /storage/.config/ Which remote do you have and which rc_maps.conf did you place in storage after coreelec install? Which problems with dropped frames do you get on coreelec(or do you mean on original dual rom?!)?

                              ok, I found my mistake ...
                              I started with the TX3 dual 20180125 release (which is a 8.90.x release of libreelec).
                              If I start the libreelec update (to 8.2.3.1) procedure from the older dual boot firmware (TX3 dual 20180109), it works !
                              I'll give a full procedure and package soon.

                              It saved my boxes, thanks to all of you !

                              still some color issues with deinterlacing, but I saw some fixes in the topic. I'll try them.
                              I'll also try to move to LE 8.2.4.1
