RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Koloss - 2013-11-08

Yes in the Skin i see that and when the pi sleep, then wake up the temperature is over 70C°


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - RichG - 2013-11-08

I've noticed the same thing with the Bello skin. When left to idle in just about any view apart the CPU is running flat out (monitored via 'top' in a SSH terminal.

And the temperature runs a little too high for comfort.

Accessing the "Information" screen updates the GUI very often, and GUI updates on a R-Pi are expensive in terms of CPU load, so that's probably the worst way to determine how active or idle your Pi is.

To determine how idle (or busy) your Pi is, much better to access the Pi with ssh and run top, or download bcmstat.sh to your Pi as follows::
Code:
wget http://goo.gl/52D1LY -O ~/bcmstat.sh && chmod +x ~/bcmstat.sh
then run it:
Code:
~/bcmstat.sh -xcd10

I believe this has been caught and fixed, should be OK in a future build.

This build is pretty much stock XBMC in that regard. OpenELEC includes a patch that touches the audio settings, but it's not compatible with all of the newclock3 patches so I left it out for now.

OK, understood.

I'm having a lot of problems with it just freezing up whilst playing LiveTV as well. I leave it in case it's going to unfreeze but when I check some minutes later, it's clearly locked up as the debug OSD is frozen as well and I have to power cycle.

My last xbmc.old.log is 193MB, so I'm not going to paste all of that but I've pasted the last 10mins of it here (I couldn't even paste the last 30m without it crashing IE, so I guess there's a size limit on what can be pasted on xbmclogs): http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=82103

EDIT: Had this happen twice in the last 30mins so I'm going to try the rbej Gotham build from 02/10 again as that was working OK apart from the laggy EPG navigation after I update xTV-SAF. I've uploaded the logs from the last freeze here if you want to take a look: http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=82705

The Pi does not sleep. It is either on or off.

Are you referring to the screensaver becoming active? If so, what screensaver?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Koloss - 2013-11-09

I think the screensaver is not always active, when i switch to another hdmi port on my av-receiver!

Mine as well, no screen saver, nothing. Just standby into 73 deg.
Using the latest build from Nov 4th.

The other thing I noticed is that it showed a notification about add ons that are not responding...
Maybe that's the reason for high temp...
Don't know

Any of those builds (frodo or gotham, doesn't matter) over there

http://openelec.thestateofme.com/dev_builds/

works fine - drives are dynamically mapped and mounted if I connect them.

Any of the rbej builds over here fails for me - frodo and gotham.

You know you can make the PuTTY window wider and it will stop the lines from wrapping (and thus easier to read/understand)? Smile

I'd call that normal.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Koloss - 2013-11-10

Yes, today log is normal but yesterday the temperature was higher!

Sometimes higher, sometimes lower, why?

My new log with Skin Aeon MQ5, the pi is always 1GHz - i have dynamic overclocked on:

I noticed with confluence skin that being on "Films" or "TV Series" (I guess all topics that show "recently added items") won't let the Pi really go to sleep. So try leaving it on ie "weather" some time and check temperatures. Do the same with "Films" and check after same time again.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Koloss - 2013-11-10

Same as @bAD kLOPFER:
When i sleep in weather my pi has this values, this is good:
