No change with the firmware swap.
Hope this is narrowing things down!

There is a problem in the HDMI spec.
To enable a 3D mode, you signal it in the AVInfoframe (out-of-band data transmitting during blanking periods).
The HDMI 1.3 spec didn't clearly specify how you switch out of the 3D mode.
The obvious interpretation is to say if 3D signalling is present then switch to 3D mode (if you are not in 3D mode) and if 3D signalling is absent switch to 2D mode (if you are not in 2D mode).

That has been clarified in the HDMI 1.4 spec to behave that way.

But I have heard of a few displays that don't switch out of 3D mode when the 3D signalling is removed. This is really a flaw in the display as 99% of displays do behave sanely.

But if you say your TV does behave as desired with LE 7.9.4 then there probably is some change we can make to fix it. Finding it may be tricky.

A debug log (wiki) from both Milhouse build and LE 7.9.4 would be the next step.

I think there is something a little ugly in the way kodi switches to 3D mode where it first switch to correct refresh then switches to 3D mode (see here).

I'd be interested to see if that sequence is different (or perhaps timing is different) between the two builds.

Hi popcornmix
Have sent you a pm with links to the debug logs.
Cheers

EDIT: one other quick finding. If I disable adjust display refresh rate -obviously playback jerky - but kodi does switch back to 2d properly on exiting. Interesting?

Maybe the problem lies in changes in Videoplayer. Please have a look.

Unfortunately the south park add-on doesn't work in the UK (geo-blocked).
If any other sources that I can play show this problem I could look into it.

Otherwise if you can identify the first Milhouse nightly build with the problem, that would help narrow it down.

I decided to wait until Alpha 4 before doing that and: successfull! Whatever it was - problem is solved again after yesterdays update. Thanks :-)

Is the problem solved in these builds (ie. #0809), or just Alpha 4 (7.90.004)? If the problem remains in these builds then it's not really fixed...

I am trying to get sandmann79's amazon prime addon working - no success
I installed libreelec 7.0.2 for RPi2 as well as the Milhouse alpha #0807 and the getwidevine.sh

The addon is firstly working perfectly (navigation - Films, TV Series, Watchlist). Unfortunately I did not manged watching any stream. I always receive an error message that at least one error occured - for details see log file

Can anybody help me? I am a Pi-Noob.

Thank you in advance
HiHiMan

@ ADMIN: Sorry, if this is not the correct support thread please feel to move this post to the correct area

Amazon won't work with LE 7.0.2 as that is Kodi 16 and you need Kodi 17 for working Amazon with inputstream.

The Amazon Prime Instant add-on is working for me with #0809 and UK Amazon. You're using the Sanmann addon, so try Prime Instant. Links in the first post.

Thanks for your Feedback - ijust updated from #0807 to #0810 and (Re-)installed widevine - hooray it works!!!
Thank you anyway
Hey guys, strange problem here. I have a USB RF kb+mouse combo that does not work with new LE builds, though it was working fine on old Milhouse OE builds. I've narrowed it down to OE build 0311 - this is where it started. 0310 worked fine. the device itself is recognized properly in both cases, identical lsusb, HID devices that it "provides" are listed in inputs peroperly (keyboard and mouse) etc.
Kodi just does not react to keypresses in any builds starting from OE build 0311, including this very latest LE build 0811.
Even more puzzling is the fact that if I hit ctrl-alt-del a few times, eventually it will cause a reboot!
So, any ideas beside getting a new KB for this machine?

Presumably PR:8807. That was a big PR (> 10K new lines of code).
Can you grab a debug log from #0310 and #0311. Enable debug before booting up.
Just boot up, press a few keys (same ones in each case) and grab the logs. Hopefully we get something from build #0311 and can see what the difference is.

Raspbian sets the country code from /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf (e.g. "country=GB"), which you can change using raspi-config (Internationalisation Options -> Change Wi-fi Country). I haven't found an equivalent setting in LibreElec.

I'll discuss the options with @popcornmix.

Timezone country?

Is there already a way to enable WIFI channel 12 or 13?

Here I navigate to a file and play it using this KB.

here I'm pressing buttons but nothing happens, so, after a while, I disconnect the RF dongle

I would really appreciate your clues on how to proceed here

Hi milhouse

"smsc95xx: Experimental: Enable turbo_mode and packetsize=2560 by default" works fine for me,
but if i have a Netgear GS108 switch betweem router and Rpi3 or 2,
BR will stuttering an 1Gb/s - must downgrade to 100Mb/s speed.

With a cable direkt from the router all modes works on all Rpi.

any solution or tipps?
Router is ok and switch i have buy for 4 month ago (think also o.k.)

thx for help and answers.
