    Hello,

    I can say it works with i386 iso and legacy drivers (on my laptop at least)

    So I have uploaded 2 isos one for x86-64 and another for i386, both with nvidia drivers and nvidia-legacy drivers
    Please test

    http://download.geexbox.org/test/i386/

    note that if nvidia drivers don’t work, you should see that in dmesg messages, so try instead the legacy ones.
    And if you have time, please test for i386 and x86-64

    Cheers !

    Hello!
    Good news:
    geexbox-devel-20161106-r538361b-x86_64.iso with xf86-video-nvidia-legacy_340.98-1_x86_64.opk booting properly without black screen.

    Bad news:
    Hardware acceleration (VDPAU) in this configuration not working, therefore the CPU usage is very high.

    In old version in SYSTEM-SETTINGS-VIDEOS-PLAYBACK menu was item “use hardware acceleration (VDPAU)”, in the current version I have not found it.

    I have found acceleration menu in expert mode and on items “Allow hardware acceleration – VDPAU”, “Prefer VDPAU video mixer”, “-Use Mpeg-4 VDPAU”, but whatever CPU usage is very high. I’ll try to change my videocard. Now I use geforce210.

    hum, maybe the libs for vdpau are at the wrong place …
    can you do this :
    cp /usr/lib/libvdpau_nvidia* /usr/lib/vdpau

    then reboot

    Hello!

    Copying files not changed the situation. Over the weekend, I will test on another hardware.

    Hello!
    I made screenshot of the TV with the old system XBMC11 and NVIDIA driver:

    Other screnshot is latest snapshot 20170102 with latest NVIDIA driver 375:

    the same hardware is used, VDPAU option in system menu is on.

    But VDPAU does not work and CPU load is high on the new system. Why?
