RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Milhouse - 2013-11-22

Fair enough, I don't use it as a PVR. Smile

It is "stable", as in it hasn't crashed, though I'm not saying it doesn't have new bugs!

Yes, MilhouseVH your build running good, thank you.

I not use pvr plugins!

Aeon mq5 skin running now, the skin developer has fixed!

MilhouseVH tried your build (post 1425) it booted just fine but when i started to flip throu my movies and series with Yatse it kept on crashing repeatedly

Is the Shutdown bug in the Gotham builds fixed? I assume i can just upgrade to the latest build from MilhouseVH coming from the latest Frodo rbej build? Thanks in advance. BTW: Whats up with Rbej's builds? I miss his awesomeness Smile xD

Seems to be fixed, yes.

Yes, although if you experience any problems (resolution/display problems etc.) you may want to try removing your guisettings.xml and restart.

A debug log (wiki) might help - after you reboot you should find the previous log called xbmc.old.log.

Edit: When you say crashed, how do you mean exactly - Yatse crashing, XBMC crashing, OpenELEC crashing, Pi hanging? There is a JSON problem with my last build (fix committed) which would cause the webserver to crash when calling Files.GetDirectory (which Yatse may be calling, I don't know).

New Gotham build on (obsolete).

no problems with this build Milhouse, feels a a bit more faster than 18.11 version.

only thing: spinner looks a bit buggy

The Confluence spinner is just a static image - it's too much hassle to replace the PNG with the GIF (OpenELEC build system doesn't support binary patches) so I just disabled the animation for now.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - Trickname - 2013-11-24

this is not really a problem, your build is fast enough to see not many spinners Wink

I tried a lesser overlclock, 900 instead of 950, still with overvoltage=6 and it still locked up the RPi whilst watching TV. With no overclock, it doesn't do this, just keeps pausing/freezing, so it's still pretty unusable and of course the GUI is a lot more sluggish with no overclock.

I think I'll have to go back to MediaPortal on the PC for now, which is a shame as the RPi uses a lot less electricity and I've spent a fair bit of money and time putting it all together but I can't put up with TV being unstable Sad

At least my brother seems happy with the one I built him but I deliberately didn't include a tuner in that as it introduced too many problems and it's far easier to just use his Freeview STB.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2 - mikeb93 - 2013-11-24

after upgrading from rbej frodo build my pi worked for a few hours. Now while watching a movie some alert dialogs popped up saying a few of my plugins are broken (not meeting dependencies and such). The screen went black shortly after that.
Hitting the stop button brought me back to the lower list menu. But now the font is missing?!? And its reeeeaaaallllyyy slow...

any idea what is going on? I really didn't want to lose my library which takes hours to rebuild.

Not sure about your fonts, is everything back to normal if you reboot?

As for ”dependencies not met”, your addons need updating to be Gotham compatible - contact the addon author. If you're using a lot of addons that haven't yet been updated you might be better off going back to Frodo until addon authors release their Gotham updates.

I have similar problems: live tv freezes occasionally on the Openelec official 3.2.3. It seems better with no overclock, but it still freezes sometimes. I have some continuity errors in the tvheadend service.log. I have read that the following settings may help with these (on the web gui used to set up the hardware and muxes):
Idle scanning: off
Full mux reception: off
There are some other options which may help (disable PMT monitoring). I've only run this for an hour, but have had no continuity errors yet.

I'm using this tuner:

Those alerts came from standard plugins from the system like the python one and such. I deleted the guisettings.xml and updated to your latest build inc. start.elf and fixup.dat.
Now everything is back to normal. I guess its normal that it deleted pretty much all my settings? the rest is fine. Thanks for the quick reply though Smile
