Sorry, forgot to check that, will investigate more thoroughly if it happens again. So far it's behaving itself!

You want to enable stacking, which in gotham is now "Combine split video items" in settings/video/file lists.

Got it, thanks. I thought stacking was something that was meant to be in the pop-up menu and I only saw Flatten there. Blush

I don't know if it's relevant to DVB-C, as I use a DVB-T stick but I had constant continuity errors as well until I disabled Idle Scanning and Full Mux Reception, so you could try that maybe.

Thank you for your suggestions. But disabling full mux reception and disable idle scanning did not solve the problem.
I have the feeling, that it could be a problem with this model of DVB-C stick, but who knows.

Best regards,

On my system I noticed that the time stamp of zipped log files is one hour earlier than when they are actually created.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - markius - 2014-02-06

The log files on my system are timestamped correctly.

What do you see if you do
Code:
date ; date -u

hi,

I'm making progress but stil not there...
I have some question, i used the search tool but could not find an answer.
1- I tried to install a USB stick (bought the sandisk extreme 64gb) but i replaced this line boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/mmcblk0p2 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 ssh
in the cmdline by boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/sda1 console=ttyAMA0,115200 kgdboc=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 ssh and it did not work.
I understood that sda1 could be different depending on the systems, buy how do i find the right one?

2- Tried to upgrade to the latest Milhouse build by putting KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5 in the upgrade folder (wich i had to create) but it did not upgrade, i tried the auto setting, the manual setting without succes. What is the easiest way to upgrade?

NOte: Remember i'm a windows user.

Thanks

I'm trying to figure out what version to use for judder-free playback of both normal avis and packed bitstream ones.

Official 3.2.4 does play packed bitstream files normal and unpacked bitreamed with judder.
Latest rbej frodo and milhouse gotham builds play packed bitstream files with judder and normal files judder-free.

It all has to do with incorrect timestamps as popcornmix suggested a while back and he proposed a fix to ignore these timestamps. Is there a fix for the official 3.2.4 (preferred solution) or a version that plays both types correctly?

The reason for the prefered solution to work in official 3.2.4 is because I don't want to upgrade databases since I have a mysql setup.

I've done some work on this and it's looking promising. May be ready in a few days.
Might be able to get it to work with just a firmware update, so it could help 3.2.4 build.

Did you create a single partition on the USB stick and format it with an ext3 file system? You'll need to use something like Minitool Partition Wizard under Windows: http://www.partitionwizard.com/free-partition-manager.html

Be more specific than "it did not upgrade". Did you see errors when you rebooted the Pi?
If you needed to create the update folder you're probably doing something wrong because it should be created for you automatically.

Are the PI and your Windows computer connected to the same network? What happens if you Start/Run "\\OPENELEC\Update" on Windows? You should see an empty folder. Put your KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5 files in there.

@MilHouseVH - Is this the correct place for this kind of discussion?

Thanks man, looking forward to this. However is there a special milhouse previous build that can do this? I recall having seen it somewhere that a fix of yours was included, but then dropped in later builds...


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - jpcolin - 2014-02-06

Markius,

Thank for your answer, yes i did create a single EXt4 partition on the USB, the problem is really the sda1 i think, i read tha tit can be sad2 or even something else, how do i find this?

regarding the update i put KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5 in the upgrade folder (wich i had to create) restarted, and nothing happens, no error and no upgrade but it did not upgrade, but it is stil on the same build
Pi and win machine are on the same network. i will try:Start/Run "\\OPENELEC\Update"

I knwo it might not be the right place, but i'm using milhouse build and did not find anything with the search tool, i would behappy to post somewhere else if you tell me where.

Thanks

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - xbs08 - 2014-02-06

Name the partition EXT4
Code:
Storage
and change to
Code:
disk=LABEL=Storage

Here's the proper way to do it if you want to know...
http://openelec.tv/forum/124-raspberry-pi/67688-raspberry-pi-usb-boot-storage-the-right-way

My advice is to also disable journaling on EXT4.

Where can you do that?

I am running on a Pi with USB/SD (Storage/System)

Good tip! Something like this (assuming the USB stick is /dev/sda1)?:

Code:
systemctl stop xbmc
systemctl stop connman
umount /storage
tune4fs -O ^has_journal /dev/sda1
reboot
