What do you mean, I wasn't talking about Frodo? Try downgrading the firmware several revisions back and reboot works as intended on Gotham, I am not sure how the two are related but you should test before jumping to conclusions.

I think you should drink a coffee before jumping on a thread!

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).

Yes, h264 is hw decoded.
The 256MB might explain the slowness you're describing. What's the RAM distribution you have in config.txt? My very first PI (256MB) Pi works quite well, only slower than all others I own (all 512MB).

Unfortunately I can't help you with Mediaportal backend. Never used it!

More coffee? He might have a stroke!Rofl

@f1vefour, calm down. It's Sunday. Have a beer instead! This is such a friendly community. Nod

It's a known issue in OE Gotham builds, and has been for some time. popcornmix even posted a link to the commit which may be responsible. It's certainly not firmware related.

It's not only OE that suffers from this bug. I appreciate your links but without testing previous versions how are you certain it's not firmware related? I am genuinely asking, not saying you don't know what your taking about.

@hudo
I am perfectly calm, me saying don't jump to conclusions is a natural response. No malice was intended ;-)

Did you click on the links? The seg fault is Python related, and causes xbmc.bin to terminate with an unexpected exit code which is used to determine whether to reboot, power off or - when the exit code isn't recognised - restart xbmc.bin.

There's no need to test previous firmware - reverting the commit identified by popcornmix solves the problem. During your testing, have you observed the seg fault and associated traceback?

My issue was apparently different. When selecting shutdown from within XBMC the Pi would only reboot, I am uncertain if a segfault condition was occurring although I don't believe so as reverting firmware resolved this issue.

I apologize to RichG for doing exactly what I said don't do and jumping to conclusions. The issue persists on concurrent revisions of Gotham, your debugging seems sane and correctly identifies the problem. I forgo the firmware theory and will take your word on it.

Code:

   </gui>

What is now your idle temperatue?
Its back at ~52C/~20% cpu load, with Amber/Confluence and screensaver OFF.

There must be a incompatibility with this build and the screensaver addon, after a fresh boot the temps and load are fine but as soon the screensaver kicks in, the cpu load is at ~90% while idle and the temp are rising up to ~75C degree and doesn't goes down, till I boot again.

With screensaver disabled, the temps and cpu load are back to normal on any menu/screen position.

Re: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - superdesi - 2013-10-22

Which rbej build is exhibiting increased temperatures?

Additionally, I am looking to download Rbej's Gotham 10-02 build. But then I notice there is also Popcorn's 10-02 build as well. What is the difference between the two?

I am only utilize the build to stream live video.

Many thanks in advance.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Shred17 - 2013-10-22

Hi,

I've recently upgraded from the stable Frodo build to Rbej's Gotham 10-02 build and the "resume" function doesn't seem to work anymore, either using the MythTV PVR addon or in videos over upnp. The videos just start playing from the start again. I've also tried popcornmix's 10-09 build and I have the same problem.

I realise these are a work in progress so I'd just thought I'd let you know as I haven't seen it mentioned.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - dexpid - 2013-10-22

Experiencing a rather strange issue not 100% sure if its related to your builds specifically/gotham. Video files with subtitles take a while to start. So long in fact I thought the box had frozen up until I let it sit for a while. After almost an hour the video started playing out of nowhere. The logs weren't really much help for googling the issue so I decided to see if anyone else has experienced this. Here is a snippet of my log file.

I've never had any issues with subtitled videos before and nothing really stands out in the logs to me. I originally thought it was an issue with my NFS shares so I tried it via SMB and experienced the same issue.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - doveman2 - 2013-10-22

I've been having a fair few problems with LiveTV with the 10/02 build that I don't think I had before. Sometimes when stopping it gets stuck looping the sound and I have to power cycle to unfreeze it. Other times it just freezes midstream whilst playing, as it did here http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=73517


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - doveman2 - 2013-10-22

Apparently the reason why I can't install the skin xTV-SAF and am getting "Dependencies not met" is because the 10/02 Gotham rbej build I'm using is missing xbmc.json. There is a folder usr/share/xbmc/addons/xbmc.json with an addon.xml in it but no other files.

Are you playing live rtmp streams?
