RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - xbs08 - 2013-06-26

From Xbian:
"we've changed the default filesystem from EXT4 to BTRFS. This optimizes the write and read speed and so increases the performance".

Would this change bring benefits to rbej builds too?

It could do. Personally I'd be more tempted by f2fs.
OpenElec will be less affected by the filesystem choice than Xbian/Raspbmc as it runs from a squashfs - only the user data (e.g. cached thumbnails) will be affected.
May be worthwhile though.

You mean a different filesystem could improve loading times on large libraries?
That would be great Big Grin

In theory. I believe all the filesystems have similar read speeds, but f2fs had significantly better write speeds than ext in some cases.
That would help with scanning, and viewing thumbnails for the first time (where a re-encoded jpeg is written).

f2fs in particular tries to minimise erasing of sdcard blocks, which could increase sdcard life.

Many Bugs:

I use a RPI 512MB Model, fast Sony Class 10 SD-Card and smb shares:

On startup
can't open : /sbin/init/ line 49 var/config/settings.conf

I tested Today, with overclocking and nothing overclocking:
All Files are MKV.

Every start, the Datetime is 1970 ...00:00

BIG PROBLEM: All files hangs after 5-10 seconds

The start problem when the folder has for example 2 Files, the starttime is 2-3 seconds.
When the folders has many Files starttime is very slow.

Turn off "Extract thumbnail and video information" has no effect for me.

Whers is the autoframerate option? All Videos are 60Hz!

Clean install

I don't see this error. Do you update from OpenELEC 3.0.6, and remove the guisettings?

You have to insert a NTP server, in the OpenELEC settings.

Have you inserted <cachemembuffersize> in advancedsettings.xml ?
Code:
<network>
  <alwaysforcebuffer>1</alwaysforcebuffer>
  <cachemembuffersize>5242880</cachemembuffersize>
</network>

I normaly only have max 3 movies in one folder. I think XBMC is trying to calculate the hole movie lenght (see lower right corner), if you have one folder with many movies.

Go into left menu in Settings, and set Advanced or Export mode.


Best regards

I had the same issue when I upgraded from Linux/Ubuntu. After installing the Gotham release in Windows 7 all these problems disappeared!


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Koloss - 2013-06-26

I have 2 same SD-Cards, in one Card is openelec 3.0.6 installed and running stable!

The other SD-Card has installed with this description:

I am a Windows User!

The other tips from you must test in the next days.

Sorry for my English, i am from Austria!

* Resume from x:xx:xx OK
* Playback ISO/DVD/MPEG2/MKV OK
* Movie start-up time OK

Gothan build:
* Now NTP setver is added OK
* Still problem with Main Menu-bar. Always in English.
* Still missing <timezone> settings.
* Edimax USB Wi-fi OK

Thanks for all great Works Big Grin

Yes Sir all good Xbmc Gotham, just menu speed kind of slow. The last one from this date 2013-06-25 from post #2238 had a faster menu

Slower than before? What was your previous version?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - CorePoint - 2013-06-27

I think the problem with Sandisk SD Cards ist back. When i write the Files manually to the Card (on my PC), then the Pi boots fine.
But when you initiate a reboot, the Pi won't boot anymore.
When you Update trough the Update folder, the files are written and the Pi won't boot thereafter.

I think this is the last build that i didn't had that problem with. 20130622121054


But besides that, the last builds were the fastest and most fluid builds i've ever seen.
