Can you identify the first build with this problem?

That commit on its own doesn't help. See Memphiz' comment.
It sounds like audio could be made to work on iOS9 if video support is removed (but this will upset users on iOS8 where video still works).


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 16.0) - steve1977 - 2015-09-30

Thanks. I was aware. I was wondering whether shairplay could be implemented as part of the underlying OE OS rather than as part of Kodi. This way, I could still have video implementation via Kodi (over IOS8), but audio implementation via shairplay via the supporting linux-based OS?


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 16.0) - Milhouse - 2015-09-30

It sounds like bumping shairplay right now would fix some things, while breaking other things. On balance probably best to wait until both Kodi and shairplay are aligned.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 16.0) - steve1977 - 2015-09-30

From what I understand, shairplay does not support video, so aligning the two will break video support. Can both co-exist in Openelec? This would not work multi-platform, but at least the OE users have a solution. Is that what has been implemented in OSMC?

Best to ask these questions on an airplay thread. There is no trivial solution to this we can do just by switching libraries. Memphiz is the guy who can answer most accurately.

Are you 100% sure? #0929 had very few changes in and nothing that looks like it could affect refresh rate switching.

Ok I will try some previous builds this week to identify the first build in which this problem appeared, probably 1~2 weeks back.
Also tried #930 because startv said it fixed the problem, but it does not in my case, I don't know if his problem is related to refresh rate switching anyway?

I tested #0930, OK, down to #0929 ,it's fine too, but I'm very sure it's not good yesterday, no settings have been
changed, So I confused what happened.


RE: OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 16.0) - Kalkoen - 2015-10-01

I have tested a few builds regarding the problem with frequency switching using Live TV.

#919 (19 sep) - frequency switching OK, but Live TV unwatchable, screen freezes after few seconds.
#920 (21 sep) - frequency switching OK, but Live TV unwatchable, screen freezes after few seconds.
#921 (21 sep) - frequency switching NOT OK (not only Live TV)! and unwatchable, screen freezes after few seconds.
#922 (22 sep) - frequency switching NOT OK and unwatchable, screen freezes after few seconds.
#925 (25 sep) - frequency switching NOT OK stays on 60Hz, instead of 50Hz
#930 (30 sep) - frequency switching NOT OK stays on 60Hz, instead of 50Hz, disabling Sync playback to display solves the problem.


The frequency switching problem is only in the Channels screen with the preview screen when selecting an channel. When using Guide the frequency is switched correctly.
The only exception is #921 that build does not switch frequency on all videos (MKV & Live TV). I have checked my TV, and it reports 24p when viewing 24p material, so it does switch the frequency correctly. BUT the sync playback to display reports: S (refresh:60.000) when viewing 50Hz Live TV & 24p MKV, also an high number of missed is reported.

So maybe the problem is with the "Sync playback to display" option, I disabled that option on #930 and Live TV is working OK (no more audio dropouts).
That option is using a wrong refresh:60.000 which is causing the problem.

Again, nothing relevant changed in this build. I think you are just seeing some random behaviour, so I suspect this isn't fixed.
