Nothing, just followed this guide: http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Building_and_Installing_OpenELEC_for_Raspberry_Pi

with

PROJECT=RPi ARCH=arm XBMC=master make release (Gotham)

instead of

PROJECT=RPi ARCH=arm make release (Frodo)

Can you try latest commit on newclock3 branch?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - soupboy - 2013-08-31

Just wondering if I'm doing something wrong with upgrading to Gotham versions? I'm copying KERNAL, SYSTEM and the MD5 files over to the update folder and rebooting from ssh.

Everything seems to go fine till it trys to update the System file and it will sit until eventually the screen goes black. Upon turning power on and off I get stuck at the Coloured bootscreen or sometimes it won't even boot.

I've also tried coping kernel and system to the sdcard and renaming kernel to kernel.img and still can't boot correctly.

System is running on USB with only SD to boot from. I'm downloading the new Frodo build and giving that a chance.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Milhouse - 2013-08-31

Sounds like SD card corruption. If you manually copy kernel.img (KERNEL) and SYSTEM to the SD card using a PC, don't forget to extract the firmware from the target folder too.

This file was recorded on tvheadend (v3.2 IIRC) on a debian squeeze system using a DD-Cine S2 V6 card back in January. We get roughly 5-10% of our recordings showing this BigStep issue (it used to be more like 25%, but for whatever reason - possibly upgrades to tvheadend? - it's not as bad nowadays).

I'm not seeing a problem with this file. It shows up as 38m duration and BigStep jumps in 10 minute steps.
Does the file misbehave when played directly, or only though tvheadend?

Thanks, that seems to have solved the problem!

Updated Frodo Branch

- [rbp/omplayer] Handle the case where EOS message fails.

- ffmpeg demuxer: fast channel change

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Trickname - 2013-08-31

FYI

channel change in latest Gotham builds is fine 3 sec,
using newer frodo build channel change time up to 10 seconds, in latest build live tv donĀ“t start up anymore.

Setup:
rpi 512, rbej build 31-08 usb install, Argus tv server (winpc), FloppyDTV card, wired lan.

popcornmix, I'm seeing this in latest Gotham builds as well.
When pulling up the info, start time shows as 54Hrs and End time keeps growing when the playback proceeds.
As (to my best understanding) BigJump and SmallJump are derived from the remaining play time, when the playback proceeds and the EndTime grows, BigJump and SmallJump start to work OK.

This doesn't happen with Frodo OpenElec builds (3.0.6) - Maybe the change in FFMPEG?

I don't think this is usable on Frodo. It requires:
1757 (PR)
and probably other gotham commits.

I am seeing the problem when playing the files over NFS as a normal video, i.e. not using the PVR addon.

I have just realised that I am not upgrading the firmware when I try the new Gotham versions... better try that first I think!

Also, Neil, correct me if I'm wrong here, this occurs when you are watching on a Pi and the recording is being served by TVHeadend running on a PC, right?

Correct... although I get the problem just playing the same file off an NFS share on the server.

Re: Step/Seek/Skip problem:
(2013-08-30, 18:44)Neil Coggins Wrote: You will find that if you use BigStep repeatedly, the step size will gradually increase from the 1-2s until it reaches around 1m, and then (assuming your recording is long enough) it'll suddenly start working properly.
I can confirm that I have the same behaviour with Myth as is reported here re TVHeadend (and has been reported by Doveman respecting MediaPortal. The skip gets progressively longer as show proceeds, until the skips are the correct length.

NB: I reiterate that the recording time fields (as shown in confluence) are reporting incorrect information. The right hand field, which is supposed to be program length, shows the position in the recording. This number changes as playback proceeds. The left hand field, which is supposed to be the position, is a large number (many hours) and does not change.

Clearly, XBMC is extracting/reading and using the wrong numbers in several (if not all) PVR plugins, and it is at the root of this bug.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - allan87 - 2013-08-31

Doveman2 and Neil: If the skip problem is a major issue for you. I suggest that you try the Rbej July 3 Gotham build. That is the last one where skip worked correctly in Myth, and seems to be a very stable and capable build.
