I'm very interested if this build is free from the gray screen startup bug.

@popcornmix: As far as I have seen it is, I've rebootet some times and there were no problems with the first (and further) files played.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - Trixster - 2013-02-24

Yep, this latest build has sorted things out nicely for me, no crashes so far and no 'grey screen' for SD videos.

- OpenElec build r13361

I'm afraid this version does not work for me:-

For me the main reason for skip forward is to skip over commercials. In UK commercials nearly always tend to be H264 stereo whereas programme content is H264 with 5.1 Dolby digital. The latest build above seems to work skipping within a 5.1 segment (or indeed a 2.0 stereo segment) but when trying to skip over a 2.0/5.1 junction ie near start or end of a commercial break then the above version just exits out of playback to video list menu. This is repeatable for every skip this also happens when entering a time to goto?

I have reverted back to r13349 which works correctly for me!

@MilhouseVH @rbjej

I'm still struggling to reproduce the gray screen problem, but assuming it is due to "seek_before_zero" patch, I've split it into three independent commits.

https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commits/seek_before_zero

I'm guesing that:
https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commit/69abbd3dcb3d488a2e98a099c79690b8f8d1c6b4 is safe.
and either the audio or video one is causing the problem. It would be good if you could confirm if just one of these commits causes the problem.

- OpenElec build r13361
- Xbmc 12.0.2 Frodo (almost 100 new fixes)
- Rpi kernel 3.6.y (16.02.2013)
- Rpi firmware (20.02.2013)
- Pvr Addon (16.02.2013) with PVR TvHeadend 1.6.18 and MythTv 1.6.9 (21.02.2013)
- Xvdr Addon (22.02.2013)
- Gpu memory set to 100mb on default for Rpi 256mb (fix kernal killing Xbmc task on Rpi 256mb board) and Gpu memory set to 256mb on default for Rpi 512mb.

Only in my build:

- add Gui resolution change (taken from XBIAN)

- add new Network Cache.

- add Both HDMI and analog audio output

- remove battery level info from System Information and add info about build version (taken from XBIAN)

- Handle resolution changes during video stream

- NFS auto-update patches for USB/NFS/SMB on Rpi

- fix ass subs for GLES

This build is working well for me - many thanks.

I'll give it a go.

Any builds out there that enable high res (1024) movie thinbnails?

You don't need a special build for that. Just edit advancedsettings.xml. I have:
<fanartres>720</fanartres>
<imageres>512</imageres>

I'd only recommend increasing it on a 512M board. You'll need to delete
~/.xbmc/userdata/Database/Textures13.db
~/.xbmc/userdata/Thumbnails

to get rid of the lower res cached thumbnails.

I can reliably reproduce the dark grey background/no playback with just the video patch. The other two patches (when tested independently) cause no problems - playback is fine. No other patches were tested in combination with these video/audio/buffer patches.

Happy to test another video patch with more diagnostics if you're still stumped!

Good. Narrowing it down. I've added some logging to the video patch. Can you apply this patch and capture a debug log after a gray screen and point to it:

Debug log here - search for the ">>>" that begins playback, and "<<<" which denotes the end of playback. In the test, I selected a movie to play, and it succeeded, after a few seconds I stopped playback and selected the same movie to play again, this time it failed to play (dark grey background etc.).


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - tuxen - 2013-02-24

Hmm.. Why has the swap file (or actually the swap file is leftover there but not used) been taken out without a commit? It influences 256MB boards.

Excellent. Looks like m_flush wasn't initialised (if it's zero you are okay, non zero and problems...)

Can you try this:
https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commit/d19f8158183f6ebc680bcce9cea05caf449ddad6

That seems to have done the trick - no more dark grey background, all movies playing - smashing! Smile


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-02-24

Confirm. Movie plays fine. Now only split three parts in one patch and testing Smile
