New Beelink U59 not transcoding

I submitted my logs for an issue I'm running into. This is a brand new ubuntu install. I ran the command line install and added my user to the /dev/dri group. Hardware is shown to me for transcoding but for some reason it will not play on any device that is attempting to transcode

3743d359-e38c-401d-be2d-ff8f690ec003

Seems like the CPU model or driver are limited in some way.

Intel(R) Celeron(R) N5095 @ 2.00GHz

Driver does not support any RC mode compatible with selected options (supported modes: CQP).

Ah, this is part of the Jasper Lake series.

You can enable the required options on the driver with Ubuntu 21.10 as follows:

echo "options i915 enable_guc=2" > /etc/modprobe.d/i915.conf
update-initramfs -u

Thanks Aman! I’ll give this a shot

No bueno.

I've now lost Hardware transcoding as an option. Its Software only. Tried installing latest pre-release and still nothing.

Run a HWE test then resubmit.

I’ve read a little bit where I need to try different intel driver versions. Not sure if that’s what I need to try or not.

What's lsmod say?

Does dmesg show the Intel driver being loaded without errors?

I just upgraded my kernel to 5.16 and that brought back the hardware transcoding option. I'm going to test this to see how many transcodes I can get before it breaks :slight_smile:

This is with 3 transcodes going from Live TV channels down to 4MB. Does this look right?

I will say that loading of TVE channels is almost instant on the Beelink. When running on my Synology it can take up to 5-7 seconds to load.
