The last build running good but this bug is not fixed!

Feature is enabled under Settings → System → Power saving → Try to wake remote servers on access

Errormessage:

When i test this feature in windows last gotham version it's running.

@Popcornmix: and @MilhouseVH: can you test this?

I'm going to need help. I've just played about 50 files and no noises at start.
The files did include stereo mp3 @ 48kHz which I believe is reported to make a noise.

Can you post a sample file and describe your audio settings?
(I'm assuming this is omxplayer. I've been testing with analogue output).

@popcornmix
This is a sample of a video with the audio problem
@MilhouseVH
In this sample I've the dvdplayer problem that I reported (image freezes a few seconds after start playing; the same everytime I skip forward/back)

If I enable this feature on my Pi, it correctly finds the three MAC addresses for my remote servers (NAS, MySQL and a Windows PC respectively):
Code:

Is there any more information written to xbmc.log (enable debugging) when this is enabled on your Pi? The error you have posted suggests that it is having a problem determining the MAC address of one of your hosts. Is that host defined in /storage/.xbmc/userdata/wakeonlan.xml ?

By the way, my Rasp is connected by hdmi and output is set to hdmi

and report if it is better/worse than omxplayer. You can still play files with omxplayer using the context-menu "Play using... OMXPlayer"...
Worse at my end: video frequently freezes for few seconds, while audio continues to play. If playback status is displayed (don't know how exactly is called, opened by holding info key in iOS remote app) a/v delta increases up to several seconds, then resets when video resumes. Freezes repeats every 10 seconds or so, seems not to be connected with a particular video or audio CODECs.

Can you confirm the same sample was intended for me and Milhouse?
I'm not seeing an audio problem with that file.

Hi popcornmix,

I am more than happy to help. Unfortunately I'm going away in the morning for a few days but can continue with this when back next week if needed. Hopefully others with the same problem can chime in too.

I've just been doing some more testing to narrow down what's happening, but not really come to any conclusions.

Previously I was using HDMI (direct into a TV only), so seeing that you were using analogue, I plugged in a lead to test that and still get the same kind of noises. I've also been trying numerous combinations of audio settings (changing output configuration, upmix and normalize settings), again without influence.

My other settings remain as stated before - 2.0, no gui sound, no passthrough, no dual audio.

I've being randomly going back and forth through a number of music videos I have on disk (i mixture of all sorts of codecs and sample rates) working out which ones are effected. There are a good number (maybe half) that never suffer the noise burst. Most of the remainder occasionally do - its seems to depend somewhat on what was playing before and whether that was played to the end or not. There are then a handful of files that seem to exhibit the noise issue most or all times they are played. I cannot however find a pattern to these files - some files are 32kHz low-bit rate while others are more standard 44.1 or 48kHz. I will PM you a link to one of these files.

A comment on the noises made - most often it is a noise burst similar to white noise, very short in duration (maybe 100ms). Other times there appears to be some correlation between the previous track and the nature (in pitch and timbre) of the noise burst - almost like a DJ scratching a small section. This very much reminds me of issues relating to uncleared buffers I have come across with other software in the past.

Hope this helps you. I'll will check back while away but wont have access to the RPi until next week..

EDIT - forgot to add - it is OMXplayer only - DVDplayer seems to be fine.

Is 'MINI' switched on and visible on your network from the Pi?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Koloss - 2014-03-12

Yes

Can you paste the output from "arp -a" (when run on the Pi)

Thanks for info. I've played your file a dozen times and it has always started without noise.
Can you confirm this issue is new (from about 1st March / small audio packet concatenation patch)?
You are definitely using Milhouse's latest build. (which fixed for me an issue exactly like the one you describe).

Timeout problem?

@popcormix
Yes, the same video sample has the audio problem described and the video freezes with dvdplayer. I've audio output hdmi. Audio: it happens most of the times (8 out of 10)
