RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Milhouse - 2014-03-13

At least that's something. I would now suggest opening an issue on OpenELEC github and/or post in the official WOL thread I linked previously.

New OpenELEC Gotham build: #0313
(Supercedes previous build)

Code:
# uname -a
Linux rpi512 3.13.6 #1 PREEMPT Thu Mar 13 23:34:40 GMT 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

# vcgencmd version

# lsb_release
OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140313233333-r17917-g5bef63b

Based on tip of XBMC master (52d498e, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (5bef63b, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for f65e83c which I've replaced with a static spinner to avoid hammering the GUI)
  • Includes kernel 3.13.y-next commits (see below for details on enabling FIQ_FSM patch)
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches (due to conflict with newclock3)
  • Default setting for "Show RSS Feed" changed to disabled
  • Disabled "Total Duration" in Confluence (see build #0221 for details)
  • ALSA is enabled and any suitable hardware should be available in XBMC Audio Settings
  • Includes newclock3: "More efficient infobool expression evaluator" (reverted in stock OpenELEC)
  • Includes newclock3: "Allow small audio packets to be concatenated to make better use of audio fifo" (reverted in stock OpenELEC)
  • Reverted connman-1.22 back to connman-1.21 due to startup bug in connmanctl (hanging when no terminal present, eg. autostart.sh)
Build Highlights:
  1. New Firmware Mar 12:
    • firmware: vdec3: Fix regression with h264 and resolution change. See: #258
  2. OpenELEC:
    • Several package updates:
      • systemd 211
      • connman 1.22 (and reverted back to 1.21 due to bug)
      • samba 3.6.23
      • dvb-firmware 0.0.38
      • tvheadend 4.1.2
      • vdr-addon 4.1.5
      • libhdhomerun 20140121
  3. XBMC:
    • Two subtitle fixes from arnova - improved logging, downloading subtitles for http sources was broken (PR4367)
    • Miscellaneous fixes:
      • JSON (PR4405)
      • Music thumbnail artwork fixes (PR4406)
      • PVR (PR4399)
      • ActiveAE fixes (PR4413)
      • Refresh rates (PR4410)
    • Accepted from newclock3: [omxplayer] When setting fullscreen flag we don't want noaspect (PR4404)
  4. newclock3:
    • [omxplayer] Make use of TrueHD fastpath when downmixing

      The TrueHD codec actually works in 3 stages. It decodes the downmixed stereo. It then decodes the differences required to produce 5.1.
      It then decodes the differences required to produce 7.1.

      Many users end up downmixing this 7.1 stream back to 2.0.
      Much better to tell the codec we only need the 2.0 stream. It saves about 50% of the CPU required
    • Memphiz iOS7 Airplay fixes now included in newclock3

Additional Testing Notes:
  1. Testers should try adding the following entry to their advancedsettings.xml:
    Code:
    <advancedsettings>
      <video>
        <defaultplayer>dvdplayer</defaultplayer>
        <defaultdvdplayer>dvdplayer</defaultdvdplayer>
      </video>
    </advancedsettings>
    and report if it is better/worse than omxplayer. You can still play files with omxplayer using the context-menu "Play using... OMXPlayer".

  2. The following settings are no longer required in config.txt and should be removed:
    Code:
    no_hdmi_resample=1
    hdmi_stream_channels=1
    no_resample_audio is now a default, and hdmi_stream_channels is switched based on audio content. For the time being when using passthrough, 2.0 speaker layout should continue to be used (you will still get 5.1 with AC3/DTS).

  3. The FIQ_FSM patch is now enabled by default in OpenELEC master. See the FIQ_FSM announce thread for details.

    One new feature, currently disabled by default, is accelerated support of high-speed isochronous transactions (webcams, real time devices, etc.). There's a possibility this could be used by ALSA or DVB modules (although not always) which may affect some users (hopefully for the better). If you might benefit from this, enable by adding the following option to the end of the line in your /flash/cmdline.txt file:
    Code:
    dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_mask=0x7



RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Irisheyes - 2014-03-14

Trying OpenELEC to see if I can get my HiFiBerry working, I've followed the instructions from the wiki and have a working standard install on my pi, but I cannot figure out how to upgrade to these builds. I'm sure the information is out there, but a couple of hours searching and trying stuff hasn't worked.

As far as I can see I might need a machine (or VM) running linux in order toy build a SD card from the latest build?

I'm no doubt missing something...as usual...


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - ijsbeer79 - 2014-03-14

The simplest solution is to upgrade to the Gotham Beta. Boot this instance and make sure Samba is enabled. Copy this build file to the Update folder (via network share) and reboot. Just copy the tar file in the update folder, OE will do the update on reboot.

@popcornmix have same issue with latest Openelec and Raspbmc builds.. all video strech modes do not work.

Another option is to use my update add-on and set it to "MilhouseVH Builds (RPi)", then you can be notified of a new build and install it from the GUI.

Some instructions here:

Not VM needed. You need to ssh in and edit the modules file.

Sorry, my fault. The fix for 3d aspect ratio broke the 2d case. I've pushed a fix to newclock3.

I have a weird issue with the latest build - networking seems to be a bit knackered. I can briefly connect to the Pi using winSCP or Putty, but after a short while the connection will completely drop and not allow me to connect again until a Pi reboot. The Pi is still able to access the internet, it's just PC-to-Pi that is freaking out.

edit: seems to be wireless only

Have a read of this thread:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=70437&p=516229

Try adding dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_mask=0 to end of cmdline.txt.
If that doesn't work try dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_enable=1.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - marcavatar - 2014-03-14

Hello guys I have a problem. Since I upgraded to the latest version of the 130314 audio passthrough does not work anymore. I have connected to an amplifier and raspberry until now I have never had any problems. Now when I start a video practically crackles constantly while if I remove the passthrough works. What should I do I go back to the previous version or is there a way to fix things. Happened to you? Thank you.

Can you confirm the exact version that stopped working. i.e. revert to
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=184866&pid=1650205#pid1650205

and test that works okay. You downgrade just like you upgrade by copying the tar file to the network "Update" folder.

Posting a debug log may have some clues.

Strange!
What format are you trying to play? I have my RPi connected to my amp with passthrough and 2.0. Both DTS and DolbyDigital works. No crackle.
I'm running the latest 0314.
