No CEC after upgrade

Postby burnout » Thu Feb 25, 2021 8:29 pm

Hi,

I've just upgraded my raspberry 4 to the latest packages available in the repos (kodi-rpi-19, kernel 5.10.17, new libcec build...) but, when launching kodi, libcec shows a pop up similar to "connecting to...". Usually this ended with "connected", but after the upgrade and rebooting, libcec no longer works.

I've tried to remove the /var/lib/kodi directory and try with a new config, but the same happens. I don't know how to debug this and any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Regards,
burnout

Did you modify /boot/config.txt as directed by pacman?

Yes, in fact, before restarting, I was using kodi-rpi-git (19rc1) with a custom build libcec, so it could use the linux cec instead of the raspberry one. Basically, the same as the new, official one (libcec-rpi-6.0.2-3).
Before posting previous post, I have switch kodi-rpi-git to kodi-rpi and libcec to the official one.

config.txt:

Code: Select all
# See /boot/overlays/README for all available options

dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d
initramfs initramfs-linux.img followkernel

[all]
include kodi.config.txt


kodi.config.txt:
Code: Select all
dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d,cma-512
dtoverlay=rpivid-v4l2
disable_overscan=1
disable_fw_kms_setup=1

If you're updated and using kms, it should work. There are known incompatibilities with some cables but if it worked previously that is unlikely. Output from kodi.log telling? Using cec cli interface?

Apologies for wasting your time... Turns out that somebody at home disconnected the HDMI, and plugged to the wrong HDMI output... resulting in CEC not working. Again, sorry.
