since build #4025 blurays with dolby digital plus 7.1 are not synced with the video. DTS HD audio tracks are in sync. 4025 is the build with bump to FFmpeg 4.0
I have the same problem since build #4025

@fritsch 

I ripped it now succesfully. But with the MKV and DD+ 7.1 i have the same problem that A/V is not in sync.

Damn! On Windows, this reaaaally sped things up. On LE, the advantage is less noticeable since the OS is already well optimized.

Should be temporary while we work out the cause of recent instability seen on RPi.

I am now trying to run LibreELEC on a NUC7i3. I keep reading conflicting info on whether or not DD+/DTS-HD/TrueHD passthrough will work with this NUC (with LibreELEC). Some reports of success, some of failure. I updated the BIOS to the latest. I don't have any HDMI 2.0, so I don't think I can update the firmware for HDMI. 

I started with a Milhouse build (not sure which, but one from April). Everything was working, but still having this issue with not being able to pass through DD+, True HD or DTS-HD MA. 
I tried updating to the 0505 release yesterday, but it did not help. I am not using "sync display", but I do use "switch refresh rate". I tested with/without refresh rate change and it doesn't seem to make a difference (like it did with my AMD experiment a few weeks ago). 

Is this something that still broken on the NUC, or is there a work around? Or am I totally doing something wrong?

I have an older, non-4K, non-HDMI 2.0 Yamaha receiver (RX-A3010). It worked fine with LibreELEC and my older hardware.

I am pretty sure that it is working with Windows, but I'd rather just stick with LibreELEC if possible. 

If a debug log will help, I can try to upload one soon.

EDIT: I am going to try the HDMI firmware update and see if it will take (without having any HDMI 2.0 gear). I assumed that the firmware wouldn't affect my non HDMI 2.0 setup, but apparently it is possible that is the issue.
 So, I was able to successfully update the HDMI firmware to version 1.66. However, I am still unable to passthrough DTS-HD Master and TrueHD using LibreELEC, Milhouse 0505.
I was able to passthrough DD+, which seems to be an improvement....

The new method allow for much simpler code that is far easier for the devs to maintain, and gives users control over exactly what the refresh switching does. 
Ah ok thanks for the explanation Smile

Thanks for your time and effort. The link is very helpful indeed.

Kinda looks like a BIOS issue at this point - which, however, wouldn't really explain everything functioning well in the LE installer, would it?!

Right now, unfortunately, I don't have the spare time (nor the spare SATA drive) to check with Windows 10. I'll wait for the next BIOS update at this point, see if that brings any progress, and report accordingly.

As a side note, it simply amazes me how Intel manages to mess up an originally great (HTPC) product such as the NUCs by poor software - be it audio passtrough in NUC6s or the RC mess in NUC7s...

Thanks again and keep up the great work! 

Hi there,

first of all thanks for all the great work with this build and Kodi/Libreelec in general, which runs absolutely amazing on my "Production" Mediacenter (Old Zotax ZBox passive).

I recently got my hands on a NUC7PJYH and I'm seeing the same problem as TheKraut reported. The integrated IR-Receiver works for a couple of keypresses and then stops doing anything. This happens with all the Alpha Builds back until March (didn't test further), and also with a current ArchLinux Installation including latest Kernel 4.16.7. I also tried the Installation from my old Zotac Box and a completely clean new Install of Libreelec.

I'll try to get a Windows 10 Installation onto the device and report back if it behaves any different.

I managed to work it out. Went to plugin releases page https://github.com/asciidisco/plugin.video.netflix/releases and saw hidden releases newer than the latest release (seems odd!). Downloaded the zip and installed manually, problem solved.

Any idea why this version isn't updating automatically? Is that entirely down to asciidisco? 
 Does the 0.13.4 release work with the newer builds? I cannot seem to get 0.13.2 to play with anything past 430. I am keeping a copy of 430 locally so I do not have to re-download every time a newer build does not work.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - debutanker - 2018-05-09

0.13.4 works fine for me with recent build #0508.

 Thanks. Just updated to 0508 with Netflix 0.13.4 and updating script.module.inputstreamhelper and installing the latest libwidevine. Everything seems to be working so far. Glad to be back in using the latest builds. Keep up the good work everyone.

 Thx! Could you please open a trac ticket together with a logfile showing you playing the rip?

This happens for all videos and rates. See attached for a log file for the 04/02 test, and one using the latest nightly. Change display to match source etc is enabled and has been previously working fine. 

Any ideas? I thought it was just broken for a while, but haven't seen any resolution since then when testing new nightlies.

thanks
Any ideas anyone? @Milhouse @fritsch

did you already read the reply to your question ---> 2732992 (post)

(2018-04-06, 00:45)Milhouse Wrote: Note that for Refresh Rate switching in #0404 and later, it is now necessary to configure the resolutions you want Kodi to use (by default, it won't use any thus no refresh rate switching).

In Settings > Display > Whitelist select the resolutions your TV supports (or you prefer) and then click OK.
