    I used the „Upgrade Kernel“ function which successfully upgraded to the latest kernel, however this changed the values of Hardware to ‚BCM2711‘ Revision ‚c03112‘ in /proc/cpuinfo .

    These values are not supported by the PHP Service fuction getHardwareInfo() which causes the Raspberry Settings page to display „This function is for Raspberry Pi ONLY“ and disables most of the page.

    I also updated to the latest max2play beta and this does not yet add support for the new values.

    I manually updated Service.php to support the new values adding ‚c0311[12]‘ to the hardware array for Raspberry Pi 4 4G and a strpos test for ‚BCM2711‘. This restored functionality to the page and everything appears to be fine. HOWEVER, I don’t know if this is a complete fix.

    Hi grimmt,

    I will pass this on to our chief developer. Thank you as always for your support!

    Hi grimmt,

    We have now implemented the fix in our current beta. Thanks again for the support.

    Thanks for the confirmation MarioM!
    I’ll update max2play to the latest beta to verify later today or tomorrow morning.

    I found a few minutes between meetings 🙂

    I loaded the latest Beta (200717) and verified that I no longer get „This function is for Raspberry PI ONLY“ on the Raspberry Settings page.
    [Side note: I peeked at the Services.php file and did notice your text for revision d03114 shows Raspberry PI 4B 4GB and it should be Raspberry PI 4B 8GB 🙂 ]

    I’m glad that it works. The Pi 4 4GB specification is probably due to the fact that we don’t have an 8GB here yet. But that shouldn’t pose a problem for functionality. Nevertheless, thanks for the hint.
