Did you mean "won't be true..."

I'm sorry could rephrase / explain this. I couldn't quite understand.

Originally you could also tell by looking at the memory chip in the middle of the board - if its got K4P2G324 its a 256MB Pi, if its got K4P4G324 its a 512MB Pi, though not sure if this remains true (different memory suppliers etc.)

Mine says 000e. I looked at System Info in XBMC last night when I was at home and I said my Total Memory was 253 that's why I thought it was a 256 MB version.

Need to look for that invoice somewhere lol

No. Video will always be decoded and displayed at full resolution (e.g. 1080p). By default we limit the GUI overlay to 720p to reduce memory usage.

That's a 512M board configured to have 256M on GPU and 256M on ARM side. You should have no problem with guires=1080.

I still don't get it sorry. Let me re clarify I guess

The reason I asked for a clarification is because of the "with be true" phrase

I couldn't understand the grammar. I don't mean to offend and mean no disrespect. Maybe English is not your first language or just a typo.

I just don't really understand the sentence that's why I don't get what you're trying to say still.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - miappa - 2013-04-10

Videos will play in 1080p if you set XBMC to this.
He meant "will be true". Case of autocorrect I guess.

Hello Rbej......can't download, no file there


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - xbs08 - 2013-04-11

Previous version (Gotham) works with USB Storage.

Did a quick test running a couple of movies (.mp4 and .mkv) and subs worked on one but not the other. Need to investigate a little more and find what are the codecs of these moveis.

Thanks for your work.

@misa
Try again


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - miappa - 2013-04-11

I am not sure, but this patch might be needed to fix embedded mkv subtitles for Gotham: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/2525
We have tested this with flyingrats snapshot of new ffmpeg 1.2 ( https://github.com/FlyingRat/xbmc-ffmpeg-version-bump ) and it seem to work very well.
I might be wrong, I do not understand this completely. :S Perhaps this patch was for new ffmpeg only...?

Just one question: this doesn't mean the end of Frodo builds, does it?

I saw popcornmix's comment and agree that the stability of your current Frodo builds is great!


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-04-11

I dont see any difference with Frodo/Gotham stability.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - miappa - 2013-04-11

Addons might be very different.
Edit: That said, testing is needed of course.

It's a merge window on master (Gotham) which means lots of commits (20+ per day).
While that's good if you're waiting for a bug fix, it's not necessarily stable. It's not even compiled a number of times this week.

I'd still prefer the choice of a stable Frodo build, or an experimental Gotham build.
