Basje Wrote:As I suspected this is an issue with the streams. Apparently not all frames are received correctly. Could be an issue with ffmpeg. I guess we will have to wait for the next XBMC beta to see if it's fixed.

If I were you I would create an trac issue on the XBMC website, perhaps they can further fix it?

Well Bas, I submitted a trac a few days ago, but so far no response Sad I can't watch streams anymore at this point. Stream freezes so many times!

If you post the link, I will see if I can help you. Will test the iRTL channel a bit more on ATV2 this weekend.

Thanks for the support!
Just was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this.

Any time I do a search using the BBC iPlayer Search, when I click the "Menu" at the list of results (really the Esc) key, it takes me all the way out of XOT-UZG, rather than returning me to the previous screen. Is that normal, or is it a bug?

By the way, that Dutch couple I mentioned a couple of pages ago went ahead and bought an ATV2 yesterday just to be able to use this addon after I demoed it for them Smile Thanks again for such great work.

Sounds like a bug to me, although there are some really strange quirks in the XBMC code for Directory updating. Could you post an uzgplugin.log for this problem on pastebin.com? I will check it out tomorrow.

Found some time?

Thanks very much, I will test this in an hour or so and post logs.
Hmmm. Oddly, the uzgplugin.log file's timestamp is a few hours earlier than the uzg.log timestamp. It doesn't appear to have anything relating to my just-now-completed foray into the plugin (at 11:32pm my time). The uzg.log file does have info relating to that, so I'll post it here:
http://pastebin.com/bbbTKZ9Z

Line 1068 from that log would appear to be where the problem strikes, if I'm guessing:

20120117 23:31:57 - [108 MB] CRITICAL - progwindow.py - 198 - OnAction::unknow action (id=7). Do not know what to do
Another bug (I think): was just browsing the Uitzendinggemist.nl shows, scrolled down a list of them, and it froze while trying to load the thumbnail image for one of the listings. I had to reboot. Here's the uzg.log:
http://pastebin.com/wDkybqdV

It also seems as though this problem only occurs with the "program addon" version of XOT-UZG. If I browse the same listing in the "video addon" version, it's fine.

It seems as though if I try to scroll down through the list while the script is trying to load images for the currently selected show in the list, the script is prone to freezing. It's as if it doesn't like anything to move while it's loading images. Would it be possible to prefetch those images as soon as a list of shows is displayed, rather than waiting for a show to be highlighted by the cursor and THEN going out and fetching the image?

No issue in the BBC search. If you search you get results (or not) and just as any other list, if you press back there, you exit XOT. If you want to search again, just select the search channel again, or select refresh from the context menu.

I don't see anything about crashes in uzg.log, perhaps the XBMC log shows more details, but it was not caused by XOT.

The problem is that not all images are available if you have the list. In some cases the URL is fetched while updating the item and thus pre-fetching is impossible. The update only starts after a period of 0.5 seconds so scrolling a list continuously should not cause any updates. The update does not only get pictures but also fetches URL to play. Small detail: all (except 1) url loading was done using Cache, so those should be instant and not cause delays.

If you want you could try increasing the delay before updating. Its the value:
Code:
self.timerTimeOut = 0.5
In line 70 of channelgui.py. Change it to 1.0 or something but do not change the indentation of the code (it will break the Python script).

Nope sorry, the TV has been occupied by my wife a lot so I could not test it. Perhaps this weekend.
Hi Bas,

I updated my system to Beta 2, still the same issue.

Although I promised, I did not have a lot of time to test. Issue is that the TV is also owned by my wife and daughter, so I need to find some un-used time.

Come on Bas, show them who's the boss Smile Just kidding, let me know when you have time. Would be cool to be able to use this plugin again.
Awesome new update!
Thanks a million. How to donate btw?

Although issues with SouthPark playback on XBMC11 @ Apple TV 4.4.4 Sad Is that still a known issue?
