RIoTboard no hdmi output on OpenELEC

Question asked by Michael Oberle on May 3, 2015

Hello,

 

I realise that this is no OpenELEC board but still someone might to be able to help me with this one:

 

I am trying to run OpenElec on a RIoTboard. There is an OpenElec build which has been developed for SolidRun boards (CuBox).

However, the build was successfully "ported" to other imx6 boards such as UDOO and Wandboard.

Apparently all that is required is using the proper DTB and to adapt u-boot (see Wandboard support in imx6 project · Issue #3653 · OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv · GitHub)

 

I have used the DTB from mainline 3.19 and adjusted u-boot so that it boots:

setenv bootargs console=ttymxc1,115200 video=mxcfb0:dev=hdmi,1920x1080M@60,bpp=32 rootwait boot=/dev/mmcblk0p5 disk=/dev/mmcblk0p6
mmv dev 0
fatload mmc 0:5 10800000 KERNEL
fatload mmc 0:5 16800000 imx6dl-riotboard.dtb
bootz 10800000 - 16800000

 

The kernel starts and the boot procedure looks good until it gets stuck at "[  OK  ] Reached target Kodi Mediacenter Interface".

Does anyone have an idea what the reason for the lacking HDMI output could be?

 

Thanks and best regards,
