LibreELEC (Matrix) 10.0.4

Posted by LibreELEC on January 15, 2023 · 3 mins read


LibreELEC 10.0.4 has been released, bringing Kodi (Matrix) v19.5. Users of LibreELEC 10.x will receive an automatic update (if enabled). LibreELEC 9.2 installs are not automatically updated, and users will need to manually update.


  • Update Kodi to 19.5
  • Updated RPi firmware
  • AMD GPU fixes


There are no official LibreELEC 10.x releases for Raspberry Pi 0-1 as support has been discontinued. Older Pi devices lack the CPU/RAM resources needed for a good Kodi experience with the new video pipeline used in Kodi v19 releases.


The new video pipeline used in LibreELEC 10.x does not support enhanced HEVC software decoding. If HEVC media playback is important to you please remain on LibreELEC 9.2 releases or consider a Raspberry Pi 4 upgrade (RPi4 has native HEVC hardware decoding).


Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi 400 hardware supports:

  • HDMI output up to 4kp60
  • H264 and H265 HW decoding
  • HDR output (HDR10 and HLG)
  • HD audio passthrough (Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD)
  • Hardware deinterlacing support (PVR/DVD)
  • 10/12bit video output

Known Issues

  • 50/60fps H264 HW decoding may need force_turbo=1 or core_freq_min=500 in config.txt to avoid AV-sync-issues/skipping
  • Kodi runs in 4096x2160 instead of 3840x2160 on 4k TVs after fresh installation (Change to 1080p@60 is recommended)
  • Run Kodi GUI at 1920x1080/60 and use the whitelist + “Adjust display refresh rate” to use 4K during playback
  • Hyperion no longer works due to changes in the video pipeline. Consider hardare/external grabbers.
  • Additional DVB drivers are not present

Important Changes

  • Raspberry Pi hdmi_mode, hdmi_group, hdmi_edid_file config.txt settings are no longer used.
  • Alternatives:
    • Run getedid create to install permanent EDID file (same as on Generic)
    • Use video=... kernel boot params in cmdline.txt to force a video mode, e.g. video=HDMI-A-1:1280x720M@60D
    • Analog audio output is not enabled by default. Add dtparam=audio=on and audio_pwm_mode=1 to config.txt to enable it


The team does not support direct update from LibreELEC 9.2 to LibreELEC 10.0 due to breaking Python changes with Kodi add-ons. We strongly recommend users create a backup BEFORE creating a clean LibreELEC 10.x installation as downgrade (which Kodi has never supported) is basically impossible. Users with an existing LibreELEC 10.x installation can update as normal.


The official Team Kodi release announcement for Matrix/v19.5 is here and LibreELEC blog posts on video pipeline changes (GBM/V4L2) are here. See GitHub for the full changelog.
