So with all the troubles I've had getting 8.3 to work on my old 7.4 platform, I decided to rip out the old m/b and replace it with a newer generation. This one came with a Celeron J1900 processor with integrated graphics. Others have reported getting mythtv to work on it in accelerated mode, albeit not linhes users (yet).

I installed 8.3 clean and almost everything is working great -- sound, 2TB discs, USB 3.0, Gbig LAN -- the improvements are great. HOWEVER, the loaded Intel driver (xf86-video-intel 2.20.14-1) does not seem to recognize my chipset and enabled acceleration. Without acceleration hi-def is basically unwatchable, so I'm here hat in hand to get help on this issue.

Hopefully this will be the last issue!

Joe

So I've been able to watch TV with the video profile of "normal" with this chip (pretty good performance for a Celeron) but I'd still like to get accelerated drivers working. I see the latest Intel driver is 2.99.something while ours is 2.20.something. Is there any concern about just getting the latest and greatest and putting it on? I can research from the Arch linux site how to do that...

I could be very wrong, but I thought only the NVIDIA chipsets supported acceleration?

Hi Mattbatt -- The Intel graphics are accelerated with a technology called VAAPI. It's built into Myth too, just like VDPAU. But its not seeing my chipset as supported.

Looks like getting the latest intel driver built will be some work due to some of the deps that are quite old on LH. The biggest being xorg-server. I don't have intel hardware to test on, would you be able to test?

Oh yes, I can definitely test. This is the "summer doldrums" so it's the ideal time to mess with the LH box. Not that much interesting material being recorded, so even if i bork the box awhile it doesn't actually matter!

Not sure if it will apply but I have an Intel NUC D34010WYKH which would still need a bit more work video acceleration
This model is an
I3-4010U processor
4400 HD graphics.
It is only used as a front end but it can be a test mule as much as needed.

The 2.99 Intel driver was pushed to the release repo last week. Is that is what you are currently using?
