RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Trixster - 2013-01-06

Rbej, are your builds built purely with 256mb Pi's in mind, or will they work fine with 512mb ones as well? Do the custom settings in your builds compromise the performance of 512mb Pi's in any way?

Hey Sdsnyr94 any chance of sharing a image of your build or steps how to put this build together for noobs like my self.Thank you

2x yes Wink

OK- so your latest test build has worked better than any previous version I have tried.

Using the Lord of the Rings movie, which is the almost 4 hour extended addition, I still had XBMC reset at some point in the middle of it (I am not sitting there watching it, just letting it run while I am doing other things, checking on it periodically). After restarting the video and going to a chapter around where I think it stopped... it plays the rest of the way through. I tried the movie twice, with the same results... unfortunately when XBMC restarts, there is no bookmark saved for the video... so I do not know if it dropped at the same point.

This is a big difference from previous builds, as they would just dead lock my Pi after a period of time.. stuck image on screen and you could not ssh into the unit.

I am now testing with a different movie, to see how it responds.

Thanks for your hard work.

This commit is responsible for breaking the RAM feature - should be an easy fix, just remove the SYSTEM_TORAM_LIMIT assignment... tested and working in my own private builds.

Thanks man.. Smile


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - tfft - 2013-01-08

Is there an issue with XMBC/openelec displaying non-western (non-ASCII) characters ?

Today when I list various youtube titles that have "foreign" characters in them on openelec they simply appear as empty space. I google'ed and it seems as though XBMC itself is UTF-8 friendly and so I'm suspecting that openelec is including a minimalistic font file in lieu of one that includes other language glyphs (say Chinese, Korean, Arabic, etc). Is this correct ?

Can someone shed some light on this topic and how best to go about circumventing this limitation.

Thanks.



RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - mactalla - 2013-01-08

Drop the font(s) with the needed characters in /storage/.xbmc/userdata/fonts/ and reboot. XBMC should pick them up.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Goofy2 - 2013-01-08

Anyone experience short freezes on ssh command line? Appears randomly for about 0.5s, gui seems fine meanwhile. Also since the Openelec beta releases, I experience slight acceleration during the picture pan effect within slideshow. Picture moves normally in the beginning and speeds up towards end of movement, sometimes it's vice versa or even random. Also doesn't rely on ssh freeze.

Raspberry 256MB, standard openelec images, no overclocking. I believe this issues started with the overall slightly lower quality of the pictures, which fixed previously highly pixelated pictures which occurred randomly during slideshow.
I also noticed mmc0 errors in dmesg since the betas/rc and I never saw them in past until the early firmware problem with fast sdcards. I tried different sdcard (both were class 10) with the same result. I tested errors and bad blocks under regular unix system. Any idea?

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Goofy2 - 2013-01-09

Lower quality when displaying pictures or during the slideshow seems to be to caused by the 720p GUI rendering. I tested unofficial 1080p build from rbej (r12814) - pictures were fine and pan effect more fluent compared to 2.99.1. I also tested some old official build with 1080p gui. Better quality, but randomly with very pixelated pictures. In official This was fixed in the beta versions and even in rbej's 1080p build.

Does this last one have 1080p GUI to?

Edit: I guess not. Referring to the previous naming.

My new custom build.

http://www.mediafire.com/?10456ccz13ard

- Xbmc build RC3 (09.01.2013) with three new Popcornmix fixes for Rpi.

1. Fix for incorrectly using clamped resolution when looking for framerate match
2. Fix non-square pixel display apect ratio and 3D TAB modes correctly
3. Fix for timestamp problems commonly seen with avi files.

Excellent. I'd be interested to hear any reports on this. XviD audio/video sync is the obvious thing to check.
I'd also be intested to hear from any composite video users (especially those using 16:9 displays and sdtv_aspect).
Also please test 3D files (SBS and TAB should be supported, make sure filename contains 3DSBS or 3DTAB as appropriate).


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - carl1jenn - 2013-01-10

I just got my RPi yesterday and loaded up OpenELEC 3.0 (RC 1) - 2.99.1 - arm (86 MB) MD5. I was interested in trying the manual update with the latest rbej build but I can't find an Update directory.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - hpbaxxter - 2013-01-10

When you are using windows, just insert \\openelec\ in the address bar of the explorer (the file manager, not internet explorer) and select the Update directory. If that doesn't work for you, try it with the ip address of your pi: \\192.168.xxx.yyy\


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - carl1jenn - 2013-01-10

Ah I didn't realize samba was already running on it. I got the directory now. Thanks for your help.
