    Hi, Hyperion looks nice, i'll see if i can add it in next releases.

  • Hi, that would be great. And i think it looks amazing to play the Games with this "Ambilight" ūüôā

    Yep ūüėČ

  • And please add a turn ON/OFF button in emulation station... I had it in Openelec and it's amazing!

    Don't hesitate to add this feature by commenting the issue.

  • Hi, did you already manage to include Hyperion? I cannot find any info in the changelog... Kind Regards, Tobi

  • Hi, it is in the todo list, so maybe in a next release. If someone with hardware want try to add hyperion to recalbox, don't hesitate to contact us here or on irc to have more information/help.

  • some news for V4.0? I can help, i've got the hardware but i'm rookie in linux and developpement. It's easy to install with the official wiki on xbian or raspbmc (openelec, osmc or retropie too) regards ----- une perspective sur la V4.0? j'ai le matos pour tester, je peux aider mais mes comp√©tences en linux se limitent √† l'install... Ca marche pour moi en raspbmc ou xbian, j'ai fait des tests sur retropie mais j'ai du merder sur un truc... A+

  • Problem I have had with making changes to Recal box is apt Just not able to install packages, which I believe by design but if someone knows of a different package maker let me know. So I have a dual boot, OpenElec/Recalbox image using noobs the last beta before 4.0. In OpenElec I have managed to add the kodi addons which enable boblight. However any attempts at adding the packages for boblight in recalbox have been unsuccssfull. ¬† If someone could walk me through what pkg manager we can use, ¬†or if someone can add the following dependencies, it could be manually configured, I could even share a default config file. ¬†Only other thing is possible some form of UI support for configuring which would likely do something like recalbox does in the frontend, allowing editing of the configuration file over http, and possibly adding settings to the UI menu. Dependencies needed,¬†<span style="color: #3f3f3f; font-family: Monaco, Consolas, 'Andale Mono', 'DejaVu Sans Mono', monospace; font-size: 15px; line-height: normal;">libqtcore4 libqtgui4 libqt4-network libusb-1.0-0 libprotobuf7 ca-certificates¬†</span> Then we need to deconstruct the installation script. ¬† <pre style="color: #000000; line-height: normal;">PATH="/sbin:$PATH" Seems very specific to know the path.

    <pre># Find out if we are on Raspbmc
    IS_XBIAN=cat /etc/issue | grep XBian | wc -l
    IS_RASPBMC=cat /etc/issue | grep Raspbmc | wc -l
    IS_OPENELEC=cat /etc/issue | grep -m 1 OpenELEC | wc -l

    Possibly edit this script or manually create a script to adjust for environment variables that are static.


    <pre># Find out if its an imx6 device
    IS_IMX6=cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep i.MX6 | wc -l

    We need to know if this is Imx6

    Then just take all actions depending on the environment if I could just figure out how to get the dependencies in, I could probably figure out all the path and startup issues as I have the hardware.


  • hyperion supoprt is on my todo list. eed someone to try, i wonder if, with just a few updates to the downloaded script, it could work

    @Michael Murphy Recalbox is a buildroot release. You can't add package without rebuild all the release... But if you now the package needed for hyperion support, you can give your help in the issue :   thank's for your contribution ;).

  • Since I have the hardware I am going to try this what subs suggested, I will let you know where I get with it. Runing ./ failed. TP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK Length: 8037430 (7.7M) [application/octet-stream] Saving to: 'STDOUT' ¬† - ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† 0%[ ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†] ¬† ¬† ¬† 0 ¬†--.-KB/s ¬† ¬†in 0.06s ¬† ¬† Cannot write to '-' (Success). ln: /usr/bin/hyperiond: Read-only file system ln: /usr/bin/hyperion-remote: Read-only file system ln: /usr/bin/hyperion-v4l2: Read-only file system ln: /etc/hyperion.config.json: Read-only file system ¬† You can replicate this without Hyperion hardware. If you can create a build, with the following packages, libqtcore4 libqtgui4 libqt4-network libusb-1.0-0 ca-certificates ¬† and RW access to /usr/bin and /etc I could attempt again for testing purposes.

  • @michael-murphy you can't use the script as-is for several reasons : /opt doesn't exist on recalbox, and most of / is read-only. but you can still download yourself the binary and give it a go

  • @substring hello. No manuals for start hyperion on recalbox/kodi?

  • @alexander-burdin damn don't necro such old topics ! Nope, nothing happened yet, no one among the team has what it takes to test anyway.
