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

Please report on whether this build is working for CEC as there are some changes with how CEC handles state changes.
Can you check if CEC remote control works initially.
Whether it handles HDMI mode changes (e.g. the automatic switching to 1080p24 when playing a video file and back again).
Whether it handles switching channel away from Pi and back.
Whether it handles switching off the TV and switching back on.

In latest rbej build, CEC seems to be failing a lot. Initially it works, but at some point it seems to stop (clicking the remote buttons does nothing).
It is not the RPi, as I can still control it via iPad app (do the same actions I cannot with the remote).

How can I help fix this?

Curious about the PVR fixes for Omxplayer. I can't seem to locate the commit. Can you point me in the right direction?

Also, the MythTV development Frodo branch has some new buffering updates that are working very well on my OpenELEC build: https://github.com/fetzerch/xbmc-pvr-addons/tree/frodo.

rbej,

The following script will replace the included mythtv addon with the latest development build 1.6.10. I've tested this latest version for a few days and it is working well. Improvements to the addon's buffering allow HD recordings to play without buffering and it fixes a bug where new recordings don't show up until a reboot.

If you could include it along with all of your other improvements, I'd be very grateful.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

source ./packages/mediacenter/xbmc-pvr-addons/meta

if [ ! -d ./sources/$PKG_NAME/ ]; then
    mkdir -p ./sources/$PKG_NAME/
fi
wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/fetzerch/xbmc-pvr-addons/archive/frodo.zip

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Pierre1985 - 2013-04-03

hi rbej,

small question the patch with alwaysbuffer is removed and there is no way to include this again or?
I asked because i need this patch because without i can not what hd movies over power lan.

Thanks in advanced.

Cheers


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-04-03

Alwaysbuffer buffer is not compatible with new patches for Omxplayer.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Pierre1985 - 2013-04-03

damn......

what is this new scheme buffering patch?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-04-03

Much more. Not only omxplayer patchas. You must ask developer "alwaysbuffer" patch about updated.

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


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - evanspae - 2013-04-03

Just for feedback I found the buffering not as good as on this previous version;

# OpenELEC release: RPi.arm-devel-20130330212420-r13669
# OpenELEC git: 3ffb2e877e12828f00bf76326e94b5956350d7bb


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Pierre1985 - 2013-04-03

Much more means? what kind of content will be buffered with this scheme buffering?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - onetootreefor - 2013-04-03

i have to agree that the buffering has suffered greatly since we have switched back to <cachemembuffersize> any 1080p video with the slightest bit of grain is going to buffer and stall....even on 512mb pi's. This issue did not persist when we were using the <freememorycachepercent> . someone should reach out to make these work with the omx patches.

You need to lobby the xbmc devs. The network cache redux pull request has been sitting in limbo for 7 months.

However, I can play 40Mbit/s files without problem without this patch.
How are you streaming? What distribution?
With NFS, wired ethernet and DTS audio passthrough on receiver you should have no problems.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - onetootreefor - 2013-04-03

im streaming via smb mostly top-quality 1080p movie mkv's. I have a yamaha receiver with DD/DTS passthrough enabled....the receiver decodes dts just fine....havent really had an issue with my 512mb pi with buffering until the latest releases with the switch back to cahcemembuffersize.

Pretty sure if you switched to nfs your buffering problems would vanish.
