Edit: Build now obsolete.

@MilhouseVH thanks, saved me a number of hours compiling!

OpenELEC doesn't use confluence from the xbmc tree, so that patch has to be mangled to OpenELEC's confluence tree. Something like:
Code:
git format-patch -1 3b8ebe5 -o ~/OpenELEC.tv/packages/mediacenter/xbmc-theme-Confluence/patches
sed -i 's#addons/skin.confluence/##g' ~/OpenELEC.tv/packages/mediacenter/xbmc-theme-Confluence/patches/0001-confluence-Use-animated-gif-as-a-cheaper-working-spi.patch

Yeah, it's easier just not applying it at all as I no longer use stock Confluence - both Confluence Modified and Amber have switched to a more efficient spinner. Although I use a script to get the patches, I suppose I could try fixing it there...


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Milhouse - 2013-10-25

Unfortunately it's not just a case of fixing up the patch as the OpenELEC build system uses the standard patch (not git apply) command, and doesn't appear to support the creation of binary files (it outputs "Hmm... Ignoring the trailing garbage." after successfully applying the first hunk), so it fails to create the gif image even though the xml has been modified. Leaving it out for now... Smile

It is based on OE master (Gotham) with the following mods:
* Includes these newclock3 commits (except for 3b8ebe5 which breaks the OE build)
* Excludes the audio settings refactor patch as this currently conflicts with the newclock3 PCM patch
* Firmware from firmware/next

Please test multichannel PCM audio output.
Turn off DTS and AC3 passthrough. Enable 5.1 or 7.1 in speaker configuration.
Check whether multichannel DTS/AC3/AAC etc files play correctly through the speakers.

I cannot see a another skin in addons as confluence!
When i install a frodo skin .zip file, I get an error message "Dependencies not met"

Airplay didnot run, cannot see the device, only one i have the device.

I think gotham build is faster!


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - stuCONNERS - 2013-10-26

gotham will be faster, it has a speed patch which isn't back-ported to frodo yet


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - nuttypro69 - 2013-10-26

Hey Rbeji does your latest Frodo build has the latest Lib file just a fast question thanks bro.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - rbej - 2013-10-26

Latest Lib file??

Please explain this.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - tdn135 - 2013-10-26

I noticed a commit on Gibhub that gives XBMC an option to output video at native resolution. Video (e.g. 720P/SD content) will no longer be upscaled by the RPi to 1080P, so that saves some processing cycles for the RPi. The main advantage is that you can let other devices upscale. Receivers (and higher end TV's) have excellent (and more complex) upscaling/de-interlacing/postprocessing capabilities, which will result in better video quality.

I would prefer my Onkyo receiver to upscale the video instead of the RPi.

https://github.com/OpenELEC/xbmc/pull/3 - The commit for native resolution (OpenElec)
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=64139 - feature request for native resolution ( disable upscaling )
1096 (PR) - discussion older version of the commit

What do you guys think? rbej, is it possible to feature this in your builds Smile Thanks


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - rbej - 2013-10-26

You must ask Popcornmix about this Wink
