Whoever was responsible for this patch, thank you very much! Before this release, cycling backgrounds on home screen items stuttered sometimes and wasn't nearly as fluid as transitions in media views (each home item is a folder of images, one is randomly selected when you highlight a menu item). After upgrading to this build, the home screen doesn't fade to black between animations anymore and media view transitions are even smoother when mashing the arrow keys to jump far down a list.

Every time I think the Pi has hit a new high you guys manage to do it again. Cheers!

Do you use the PVR functions? I find it takes about 4s for the timeline EPG to appear when I press my shortcut button I've mapped to it and then scrolling the EPG is very laggy. When TV is running it's worse and takes about 8s to appear but that's obviously because LiveTV is using part of the CPU but nevertheless it's a rather painful experience Wink

Even on the Home screen I find it still quite slow changing screen, which is partly due to the fade out transition which I kinda wish could be disabled to sped it up a bit. Scrolling through movies (on Poster Wrap) can be a bit laggy as well although it seems to cache the posters the first time, so if I scroll through the whole lot to allow it to cache them, it's a lot quicker after that (not sure if this persists after a reboot but I imagine so).

Hmm, it almost seems from what you've said that I don't have this build with these improvements, although I updated with the 24/03 build. Maybe it didn't update properly for some reason, so I'll try updating to the latest again.

EDIT: Well it's definitely updated now and no difference. There's still a second or two when selecting Movies, TV Shows, etc from Home where the menu fades out and I just see the background before the next screen appears. I thought maybe having TVheadend running in the background (I'm using the Mediaportal PVR addon) loads the CPU but top just shows xbmc at 28-32% CPU and everything else is at 0.1-0.2%.

The new stalling schemes don't seem to be working for me. Is there anyway you could revert back to the old scheme?

Thanks.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-03-29

This scheme working very good. You only one who have any problems with new scheme.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - serxx - 2013-03-29

Didn't work for me.
Xbmc seems slower. Most channel changes still result black screen.

I have h264 SD channels with mpeg stereo audio.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - doveman2 - 2013-03-29

rbej,

might it be possible to integrate this Spotify addon into your builds http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=67012&page=112

I don't really understand what they've done there so appreciate it might be a lot of work or just not something you're interested in doing but it would be nice to have Spotify. Maybe there's some other addon that I've overlooked that I can easily add myself?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - pplucky - 2013-03-29

@rbej: What about integrating librtmp latest version in your image?

Currently, doing so is not so easy, as the file to be replaced is in a read-only folder.

Since mid-Febuary it has been working fine, but it's now stalling during some commercials again. I suspect it's due to resolution change as before.

It doesn't seem to occur all the time during commercial resolution changes, so I will observe some more to see how frequently it occurs.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - doveman2 - 2013-03-29

I'm not sure what this talk of schemes and stalling is about but I am getting a lot of pauses when watching LiveTV with the Mediaportal PVR addon now, which I wasn't before. The pause OSD appears briefly as the stream pauses (probably under 1s) and sometimes this happens a few times in a row over a short space of time then it might play normally for a short/long while.

It might just be a coincidence but I've only seen this since updating to the latest build. Log at http://pastebin.com/A0ECnQ0k (tested first with SiO2 and then Confluence and experienced it with both).

Oh, ok thanks for letting me know. The problem doesn't seem nearly as bad as before. It only stalled once yesterday.

Hi,

With latest rbej version, some video have wrong aspect ratio. Note that this already happened before Frodo was out.

You can test it with : https://dl.dropbox.com/u/15180910/stream.mp4

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-03-31
