is there something in a XML-file wich can manipulated directly?

I think it is
Code:
<general>
<settinglevel>3</settinglevel>
</general>
in .xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml.

with 0=basic, 1=standard, 2=advanced, 3=expert.

unfortunatly it resets itself to 1. But i have fount the right menu settings. They are hidden since the screen is too big. To set the Gui to -4% you need the advanced settings...

Why don't you calibrate the screen in xbmc?

You have to do it for every resolution and refresh rate and for all the 4 sides of the screen. If you set the GUI to -4%, wich works also for the films and media, you have to do it once with two clicks.

Better still, apply the overscan settings in config.txt to stop the screen spilling off the display. Adjusting the GUI in XBMC results in other problems, such as font clipping so isn't perfect.

Remember you need
Code:
overscan_scale=1
for config.txt overscan settings to apply to xbmc (normally they just affect the framebuffer console).

Note: the best solution is to disable overscan on the TV/monitor. Check the display menu options (it may be called "just scan", "screen fit", "HD size", "full pixel", "unscaled", "dot by dot", "native" or "1:1").


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - xbs08 - 2013-06-05

Gave up "just scan" as it reverts everytime the RPi reboots.

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-06-05

My english is very poor and hard for me to explain. Maybe Popcornmix answer to your question.

rbej, latest version reports video playing at a max of 15 fps (altough, video seems fine).


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-06-05

15 fps this is GUI speed, not movie.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - lysin - 2013-06-05

Its just easier if I show you...

Tested this on both movies and tv shows (1080p and 720p) always with the same result.

Normal value should be around 24 right? (at least for most videos anyway)

He means the code includes patches from a new branch:
https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commits/newclock3

This will have new features, but may include new bugs.
It has some updates to the clock handling which should fix subtitle sync (without harming performace).

It also replaces some of the discontinuity handling which may help audio sync in files with glitch (like TV recordings).

It should implement single step (i.e. frame advance). Press pause, then right arrow.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-06-05

I see only fps:8.14. This is GUI speed.
