I'm using this great addon successfully with OpenELEC Generic (on ION) and on Windows.

However, with OpenELEC 3.95.7 for Raspberry Pi, playback doesn't work. When trying to play a program, I get the music visualization screen in the background, but no audio or video.

I tried a fresh install, and also tried the latest OpenELEC nightly build, but the behavior didn't change.

Any ideas? Anyone else seeing this?

Upgraded to OpenELEC 4.0.0, and the problem is still there in the RPi build (and not on other platforms).

Ok, call me an idiot.

I forgot to enter the MPEG2 license key in config.txt on the Gotham install. It's working fine now.

Strange, though, that it seems to treat MPEG2 content as audio content if the license isn't activated.
