@thc013: I'll contact you through direct message. We'll set something up. Especially if you'll be actively working on it

BTW FYI: This is the first image I've seen, where the OPI logo, "Orange Seal", ever appeared, on pre-boot. About time, nice job.

I had to write driver for bootloader first

I won't express this right so forgive me. On cold boot, I now see the OPI seal, the OpenELEC Splash, then I get a error "ding", and just Black screen, with no video on my 24" Vizio monitor @1080p. I've got a workaround, but, it's kind of annoying to have to keep using it. By toggeling the HDMI input, the video starts displaying normally. I'm supprised ther isn't a simple way to get it to start up without this error?
And, I've got a theory that may help someone, on my NTP time/date fall back issue (without using the DS3231 RTC's I bought). The OPI misses the internet (routers) signal, after a household power loss. Or, to say it different the OPI starts, before the router finishes it's starting up routine, So, it falls back to the Unix time/date stamp application and desplays "January 31, 1969 07:00". Wouldn't the "Wait for internet option" in OpenELEC config, allow for correction, delaying the OpenELEC startup?
It doesn't help that, I run my router/cable modem, into a seperate switch. So, it tends not to recover, until I've run the units back to the modem direct & cold boot it again. It's not all that easy to recreate the error, so, it's all theory on why it ocours, beause it normally takes me, a long time to get it to correct it's self.

Maybe TV doesn't like HDMI signal switching between bootloader and Linux. Armbian uses same code for boot screen and not much complaints there except for flickering. Try with another TV or monitor. I know that this is not ideal, but because of such unneeded issues I decided to stop working with old Linux kernel code.

Waiting on network connection is time limited to 10 seconds I think.

Hey all ! First of all  - great great job on openelec for OPI+2. Now a question - just upgraded (via Kodi interface) to a new build (feb212017, I think) and it seems that the system became very slow and sluggish. Would you suggest doing a clean install, upgrading to the latest image and then restoring kodi backup ? Thanks

You can set the "Wait time" above 10 sec limit. But, the SBG6580 cable modem, takes over 90 seconds to boot, acquire & stabilize anyway. Since I now know this, I'll just have to plan on re-booting the OPI, after the modem is at ready state.

Monitor wise, the only other HDMI monitor I've got, is also a Vizio 55", other than a couple of VGA's that don't cover the audio. I can try with my HP, but, I think I already did, and, it did the same thing. So, no real joy there either. Looks like I'll remain stuck, till there's a kernel swap then.

thanks again

My guess would be first, "Clear cache", "Purge Packages", and, then look at your "Advanced XML settings" to tune up your "Cache" memory usage, related to what free memory is available.
