Black screen when switching channels with live tv
Loud noise at start of playback when using amplification
Seek hanging when deinterlace is enabled

You can use the advancedsetting streamsilence (http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=advancedsettings.xml) to keep hdmi audio active when playback stops.
This should avoid the loss of a couple of seconds of audio at start of playback while receiver locks on, and is useful for music playback.

Hopefully there will be a gotham build too....

RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - dhead - 2013-10-20

Anyone willing to confirm that OpenELEC on the Pi can't recognize Win key combinations.

I'm testing a rf remote that one of it's buttons send "Win+i" and it doesn't recognized on OpenELEC.
I don't have a usb keyboard to try myself and confirm this.

A correctly recognized Win key combination will display like "Onkey: win-i" in the debug log.

Edit: I'm not sure what key is it, when testing the remote on my laptop SDL remapped it and I'm not sure which exactly key this is because the hex and dec values that display in XBMC log are different.

If we knew what patches were in his build, we wouldn't have to wait....

I don't know but with this build my Pi's getting much hotter as usual?! Idle on the homescreen before 54C, now 64C and playing live streams down to 59C.

Just an idea to "fake" power-saving while idle, it would work like the DIM screensaver but instead of dimming, it makes a screenshot of the current screen and display it, on button press it goes back to the "real" screen and delets the screenshot. Since rendering the menus have a huge impact of cpu load, but while playing/displaying content the cpu load goes down and the Pi gets cooler.

Or is it possible to under-clock/volt the Pi while idle?

//EDIT

It looks like this in advancedsettings.xml and disabling the DIM screensaver brings down the load and temps.

Code:
<gui>
       <algorithmdirtyregions>3</algorithmdirtyregions>
       <nofliptimeout>1</nofliptimeout>
   </gui>

Thanks for posting your build hudo, some feedback for the devs on the patches included:

Skipping (on h264 at least) now works with deinterlace on (previously just froze for me) i get a grey garbled screen for about a second after the skip, but then it clears itself.

I tried to shutdown the Pi (using xbmc power off menu option) but it actually just restarted xbmc, then i got buzzing crackling audio (over hdmi) until i played a video.. (maybe related to the stream silence option?)

Live tv / recordings still take a long time to start for me on this build, i will see if i can try some other formats..

it works for the other 1 million users or so. and you should not edit anything yourself if you don't know what you are doing.

Well clearly there is a reason why it isn't working, we just don't know what it is.

As you replied in the xTV-SAF thread already, you know that I only edited the gui.version because the skin author told me to.

editing is meaningless because of

force refresh the repo and see what happens

This has been happening with Gotham builds for quite a while now.

What is now your idle temperatue?

I haven't noticed the grey garble. I'll test some more tonight.

Shutdown bug is a known Gotham "feature".

What PVR are you using? I use pvr.vuplus and recordings/live tv start amusingly fast (my wife's words). Usually 2 to 4 seconds.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Swifty - 2013-10-20

I'm using Mediaportal backend, I see the same behaviour with recordings as well as live.

Pressing 'O' while it's playing shows that it's using omx-h264, I assume that is hw decoded on the Pi ?

(At the moment I've not purchased any of the additional codecs since I'm changing to a different Pi next week (a 512mb model).

Didn't make any difference I'm afraid.

I am sure this is a firmware issue, at least on other distributions.

Same firmware with Frodo seems to be OK here......
