Looks like Sraue is working on the i.MX 6 (cubox-i) Smile

Code:
PKG_NAME="u-boot"
if [ "$UBOOT_VERSION" = "default" ]; then

  PKG_URL="ftp://ftp.denx.de/pub/u-boot/$PKG_NAME-$PKG_VERSION.tar.bz2"
elif [ "$UBOOT_VERSION" = "imx6-cuboxi" ]; then
  PKG_VERSION="imx6-cuboxi-920ea0f"

Unless you are using MySQL, or have tweaked your fanart/imageres settings, there is very little reason to have an advancedsettings.xml at all. I can't tell you if you need to modify your as.xml without knowing what is in it, but if it's full of default/junk settings you probably should remove them as they can cause problems. You only need an as.xml if you have a need to modify default settings, which generally means your as.xml should only contain a handful of settings. Don't add anything to your as.xml file unless you know what it does.

Same applies to your config.txt, I don't know what you've added. Paste up both files if you're still not sure.

They're set in the stock advancedsettings.xml:
Code:
cat /usr/share/xbmc/system/advancedsettings.xml

Currently 720 fanartres and 540 imageres.

Nice to see the speed at which issues are being fixed - and just to confirm, this issue is fixed.

Thanks to arnova for the fix and Milhouse for the build.

I use a Transcend Jetflash 700 8gb with my Pi. This gives a read speed of 26.6MB/s (sequential).


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - xbs08 - 2014-01-18

4K random read is the most important.
You can test with crystaldisk program for windows.

I have just installed this build for test... can I say how impressed I am at improvements to live Tv and to ISO playback as well as the exciting possibibilty of HD audio playback!!!

I am amazed that with new audio engine I have almost got multichannel HD audio working, although its very temperamental but I did hear it working!
I have a windows 7 pc system working with recent nightly of XBMC. All my audio HD material is playable from this but I am so looking forward to possibility of replicating this performance from a fanless RPI.

Main problems at the moment are audio engine locking up and a bit buggy on iso playback (menu selection) once selection made and after starting its stable.

I also have issue with BBC Uk H264 TS recordings. To get reliable playback I have to set de-interlace to off for all videos even though it should be on/auto. The auto setting works consistently on earlier builds.

Once again thanks for work on getting to this stage, keep the good work up.Big Grin
