    Hi there,
    I wonder why I cannot use Hyperion for external HDMI sources with kodi 18 testbuilds on my RPi3.
    I want to use kodi Leia testbuilds, because on the latest stable release of LibreELEC (kodi 17), full 3D frame-packing heavily stutters and with new kodi 18 testbuilds it is very smooth.

    I would be very happy if someone could tell me, if and how this could be fixed. I cannot use the external grabber this way, because there is so much black.

    Maybe the defaults have changed in the kernel drivers in 18 ?

    Can you use something like v4l-ctl to adjust brightness and contrast ?

    I don’t know how to do that. I am very new to Hyperion things. In libreELEC builds, apt is not included and I don’t have v4lctl (in web it’s written like this) installed. Since there is no 'dpkg', I don’t know how to show all installed packages, so I just tested with 'which'.
