    hw transcoding fix v1.04b DS918+

    Hi, I removed the faulty i915 drivers from extra, you can download and test it here. hw transcoding is working but performance is low on both videostation and plex but I don't think is related to the loader. on ASRock j4205-ITX you have to unplug any monitor before using hw transcoding otherwise the system will reboot, this one might be due to /dev/dri permissions or the DP to hdmi coverter on this board. reboot/shutdown is working properly again. I recommend doing a clean install, formatting the hard drive before testing. You can test disabling video outputs in the grub, for me it didn't install properly. video=eDP:d video=DP-1:d video=HDMI-A-1:d video=HDMI-A-2:d root@DS918:~# ls /dev/dri card0 controlD64 renderD128 root@DS918:~# cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_frequency_info PM IER=0x00000070 IMR=0xffffff8f ISR=0x00000000 IIR=0x00000000, MASK=0x00003fae pm_intr_keep: 0x80000000 GT_PERF_STATUS: 0x006030cb Render p-state ratio: 48 Render p-state VID: 203 Render p-state limit: 0 RPSTAT1: 0x12000030 RPMODECTL: 0x00000d92 RPINCLIMIT: 0x000027d8 RPDECLIMIT: 0x00005a00 RPNSWREQ: 800MHz CAGF: 600MHz RP CUR UP EI: 3192 (2660us) RP CUR UP: 477 (397us) RP PREV UP: 0 (0us) Up threshold: 85% RP CUR DOWN EI: 5109 (4257us) RP CUR DOWN: 482 (401us) RP PREV DOWN: 0 (0us) Down threshold: 60% Lowest (RPN) frequency: 100MHz Nominal (RP1) frequency: 250MHz Max non-overclocked (RP0) frequency: 800MHz Max overclocked frequency: 800MHz Current freq: 800 MHz Actual freq: 600 MHz Idle freq: 100 MHz Min freq: 100 MHz Boost freq: 800 MHz Max freq: 800 MHz efficient (RPe) frequency: 250 MHz Current CD clock frequency: 624000 kHz Max CD clock frequency: 624000 kHz Max pixel clock frequency: 624000 kHz [ 127.551937] ACPI: Power Button [PWRB] [ 127.601681] Linux agpgart interface v0.103 [ 127.674041] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810 [ 127.809306] [drm] Memory usable by graphics device = 4096M [ 127.882071] [drm] Supports vblank timestamp caching Rev 2 (21.10.2013).

    hw transcoding fix v1.04b DS918+

    1.80, with specter and meltdown on, should I expect big difference in performance if I disable meltdown?

    hw transcoding fix v1.04b DS918+

    hi, Both works for me, booting headless or unplug the monitor after you have everything set up. I find it hard to recommend this board, generally I find it hard to get a consistent behavior out if it. currently I have gigabyte 1037u that is working 24/7 for 5 years no problem, this one I'm still testing. on J4205 hw transcoding still buffering in Videostation but In Plex seem to work ok . I'm currently checking why transfer rates are inconsistent sometimes. With all this said if you need hw transcoding or you try to get as close as possible to the real DS918, DS1019, DS619slim, apollo lake boards are your best bet. Maybe Gigabyte has a better implementation with GA-J3455N-D3H if you can find one.

    ok.. I will test myself if performance improve on ds3615, I tested burst performance like this echo "0" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/boost dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=1024 | md5sum echo "1" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/boost dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=1024 | md5sum

    How to change module parameter?

    Hi, I was trying to test couple module parameters for i915 but they are not picked up if set in the grub.cfg as extra_args. I could do it this way but it's not persistent after reboot cd /lib/modules rmmod i915 insmod i915.ko modeset=1 Can anyone help me with a permanent solution?

    no, I will tnks

    How to change module parameter?

    that is the point changing /sys/module/i915/parameters is not working by grub args, and the insmod i915.ko modeset=1 works only until reboot. this one also is not working root@DS918:/lib/modules# echo "1" > /sys/module/i915/parameters/modeset -ash: /sys/module/i915/parameters/modeset: Permission denied
  11. if you keep digging on the forums a lot of people complain about the board and most have different heretic behavior, like this guy have even weirder issues on windows, somehow it explains why we notice different behavior with the same boot image or extra
  12. I will try and update the chip firmware this weekend. https://rewster.uk/2017/02/12/asrock-j4205-itx-issues-that-intelasrock-need-to-fix/
  13. try also and update i915 firmware, in my extra I added the latest ones. https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/i915
  14. mine is not rebooting, just buffering every 3-5 sec, I do always keep the display unplugged (that is causing me reboots but also in plex) my point is that if the drivers is loading fine in dmesg, hw trancoding is working in one of the apps the only different thing is the version of the codes VS is using.
  15. VideoStation experience is bad for me also, but I don't use it. I don't think it's a matter of drivers anymore but codecs. VS is using their proprietary version of ffmpeg and in the older versions could sideload parts of 3rd party ffmpeg functions but no longer. https://github.com/SynoCommunity/spksrc/issues/2952#issuecomment-337214013 I can transcode 2 4k HEVC simultaneously with plex but VS is buffering on 1 1080p

    Is it properly detecting your cpu? you have boost disabled in bios, not sure how amd calls it.

    hw transcoding fix v1.04b DS918+

    maybe unrelated, I had issues with cold power up with this board and it got better by removing the bios jumper, asrock j4205-itx supports jumperfree so I see no damage in trying it also. I will try and make a detailed explanation with what works for me when I get back from work.

    hw transcoding fix v1.04b DS918+

    I mentioned "video=eDP:d video=DP-1:d video=HDMI-A-1:d video=HDMI-A-2:d" is not working for me. just remove the cables CSM yes all three to UEFI Only Don't disable Intel SpeedStep, it will not burst to 2.6. try to keep RAM and Voltage to auto until you make a successful installation Suspend to RAM: AUTO; ACPI HPET Table: enable get also https://synocommunity.com/package/ffmpeg and run ....@appstore/ffmpeg/bin/ffmpeg -config

    hw transcoding fix v1.04b DS918+

    ok, further info, I managed to keep 2 x 4k streams simultaneously with minimal buffering by enabling CSM / UEFI ONLY .....
  22. are you formatting the HDD in your NAS before each install?
  23. I meant 1 x 1080p.DD5.1.x264 + sub to 720p is buffering every 10/20 sec
  24. monitor unplug only fixes the sudden reboot when trying to transcode, to check if the driver is ready just see if /dev/dri exist, type "ls /dev/dri" for videostation hw transcode you need an original sn+mac not sure it''s the case for plex. can you share dmesg output with me?
