The cause of the seg fault has been identified (turns out it only happens when CEC is disabled) and a patch has just landed on OpenELEC master.

This build is working very well for me using the following advanced settings:

Code:
<advancedsettings>
    <guires>1080</guires>
    <network>
        <alwaysforcebuffer>false</alwaysforcebuffer>
        <freememorycachepercent>5</freememorycachepercent>
    </network>
    <fanartheight>560</fanartheight>
    <thumbsize>256</thumbsize>
    <gui>
        <algorithmdirtyregions>3</algorithmdirtyregions>
        <nofliptimeout>0</nofliptimeout>
    </gui>
    <bginfoloadermaxthreads>2</bginfoloadermaxthreads>
</advancedsettings>

CPU is at 850Mhz

Thanks a lot.

Can I install XVDR server from here on my RPI?
How do I do that, where is it found?

This is for Raspbmc so I don't know if it will help with OE (probably not actually as I don't think it's easy to install extra stuff with OE) but I couldn't even get it to start after installing on Raspbmc and then read it doesn't support OTA EPG so I gave up Wink http://forum.stmlabs.com/showthread.php?tid=6580

@rbej

Another patch for testing:
https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commit/db0e651bb0cdc91c5e240c2025b332dbffacbc84

Requires gimli's sync with dvdplayer patch (which I think you are already including). From the commit message:

"Currently after a seek, the mediatime doesn't update until an audio and video packet have been fetched from demuxer, and been decoded. For HD content this can take a second or two.
This has a couple of undesirable effects:
The seek time that pops up after a seek initially shows the before seek time, and the file progress bar is laggy.
If you seek a second time, before the time has updated, it will use the before seek time, and the second seek has no effect.
This limits a sequence of seeks to a maximum of about 1 every second or two.

The fix udpates the GPU mediatime immediately after the seek, so the mediatime is correct immediately which fixes the undesirable behaviour."

Working ok Wink

I see you working on new stall branch.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-03-17

Frodo Branch Updated

- Xbmc Frodo 12.1

- Set mediatime on GPU after a seek

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - tfft - 2013-03-18

After a bit of a haitus from openelec (I had last used r13156) I recently tested r13556 (from thestateofme site) and have noticed a number of issues,

1. I was unable to view any of the online streaming videos (cbsnews, aljazeera, tmz) except for the video clips I have on the USB stick (is there an issue with opening steams ??). The streaming sites would look as though they are to start and then the blue background changes to gray and we're back to the menu settings as through we haven't done anything. I then switched to r13156 of the firmware and all worked OK so I know its not the sites noted above.

2. On the new firmware, I was finally able to play OGG video but the sample file's audio and video quickly went out of sync (about 2 seconds in) and after about 13 seconds the video simply hung (not sure if this is a codec or an omxplayer issue). Who can I report this to ? I can upload the sample file if needed...

I then tried rbej's image (xbmc 12.0.7) and things improved on point-1 above. I was able to see streaming videos but only after a rather loooooong initial buffering delay (why has the delay to start the video increased so dramatically ? It's almost 3-4 minutes now to start compared to say 15-20 seconds from before).

Even though there have been 400 changes, I didn't really see any noticeable improvements (the RPi unfortunately still feels sluggish). Point-2 above responded in the same exact manner with rbej's image.

I'm using a vanilla RPi-256 sans any modifications and/or custom settings. Thoughts/suggestions/ideas ?

Regards.

Probably something to do with the cachemembuffersize changes. Did you follow:
Quote:Please read this:

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/1388

No more cachemembuffersize in advenced setting. Please delete it and add this:

<alwaysforcebuffer>false</alwaysforcebuffer>
<freememorycachepercent>5</freememorycachepercent>

Quick noob question re: new advancedsettings.xml entries. cachemembuffersize was a "network" entry of which. Do these need the to have <network> before and </network> after, or are they standalone. Sorry for dumb question, but wasn't entirely clear to me if the two lines above literally replaced the cachemembuffersize setting within the network section of advancedsettings.xml or not.

They both are all in network section, so require <network> before and </network> after.
