Thanks for the help @MilhouseVH/@rbej.

I've squashed back the commits and both are on new_stall branch.

- 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

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please read this:

https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/1388

No more cachemembuffersize in advenced setting. Please delete it and add this:

<alwaysforcebuffer>false</alwaysforcebuffer>
<freememorycachepercent>5</freememorycachepercent>

1. alwaysforcebuffer: This will force everything ran through dvdplayer to be buffered that would not be normal buffered except Optical Media. This includes SMB, Local Files, OS Network Shares, etc.

2. freememorycachepercent: The amount of free memory to use as buffer size. Please note that of the percentage of free memory used ~75% will be used for forward buffering and ~25% will be used for the back buffer.

Add to advencedsettings <guires>XXXX</guires>

XXXX = GUI resolution. 480p,720p,900p,1080p. <guires>720</guires>, <guires>1080</guires> etc...

Update Instruction:

http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Updating_OpenELEC

For Rpi 512Mb set gpu_mem=256 and change GUI to 1080p.

For Rpi 256Mb set gpu_mem=100 and change GUI to 900p.

or clean install:

http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Installing_OpenELEC_on_Raspberry_Pi

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Before update please remove this lines from config.txt

start_file=start_x.elf
fixup_file=fixup_x.elf

New codes now is included in start.elf and fixup.dat files.

Thanks everything for help with this build

Hi!

Just show this thread and I want to ask you if it is ok to update my openelec dated from Septemeber 2012 with your version using the usual method with the kernel and system files. Because I have a win7 pc. Is it ok? what about the config.txt and the other thing you say in your post? Do I have to "install" them somehow or are allready included in the kernel and system files?


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

Everything will be ok.


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

Thank you very much for the fast reply! I'll update and tell you my finding! Thanks again!!

Fixed seek patch working perfect.

New stall patch have this issues:

I have a 256 MB RPi and it's the same with gpu_mem=100 and gpu_mem=128.

But not only first play. More than once. Especially when try play online movies.

So once a file has played correctly, it is good forever?
Do you have a (online) URL for a file you've seen not play?
I've tried several iPlayer files, but they all started okay.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-02-25

This is random no play movies for first time. Second time play this same movie is ok. No black screen.

But if you then try a different movie, does it sometimes fail the first time, or is it only first play after booting that fails?

Those screenshots look like it's a font issue. Have you tried changing fonts / bold / shadow / etc?

Quite possibly related to this issue, maybe a memory leak or simply not enough memory (try tweaking GPU memory split).


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - hpbaxxter - 2013-02-25

@popcornmix: The not playing bug I described and rbej quoted only appeared on the first attempt to play the file, more often on attempts to play a file immediately after booting, but if I remember correctly it also appeared once or twice after having played another file. When the first attempt has failed, the second, third and further attempts were always successful, so maybe the data was buffered somewere ... At the moment, I play media files only from a usb hdd directly connected to the raspberry pi, so I can't say how the new stall patch behaves on smb shares. I will try to have a quick look on that with rbej's r13360(without seek)-build.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - hpbaxxter - 2013-02-25

I was unable to reproduce the error for the moment, but in my short testing with upnp via lan cable I've experienced severe audio problems (stuttering during video being stopped for caching, video playing without audio) during playback with r13360(without seek and new scheme)-build from rbej. So I have to revise my earlier post. The r13360(without seek and new scheme)-build works better for local files, whereas builds r13360(without seek) and r13360(without seek and big buffer) are more suitable for network files. So the "new stall" patch is justified ;-)

Again I'm finding this difficult to reproduce. I did catch it once, and from the debugger took a guess at what could be wrong.
Apply this patch (on top of new_stall patches):

Hard to say if it's fixed as it only failed 1 time in 20 before the patch.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi - rbej - 2013-02-25

No change

Black screen when play movie

Black sceen after seek (remote control)

On old scheme everything is ok
