4.19 http://ix.io/1vim
4.18 http://ix.io/1vil

I posted both on the linked Bug report, hope it helps

Thanks. It might be worth mentioning it started with 4.19-rc1, as that might help narrow it down for any kernel developers that take an interest.

 it's on my to-do here.  I have 3 different RT816x variants across 4 different platforms, so will take some time, but I'll get to the bottom of it


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - tkgafs - 2018-12-05

Just moved to a linux build from windows

after playing about with a raspberry pi install I noticed that there is an option in it to select bluetooth and hdmi audio at the same time, 

is it possible to enable this option in the generic build ?

Looks like there was someone else with the same issue that solved it with some config changes to DRI/Mesa - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=299115&page=7
it looks like /etc/drirc is read-only on libreelec and i wasn't able to add the lines to the configuration. anyone know how to try this fix on /etc/drirc?  

Can you test with build #0702b: Generic and confirm it the stutter is any better/worse/no different? Don't force i915_min_freq when testing this build.

#0702b includes a commit that reverts a change added in 4.17-rc1 which aims to avoid boosting the GPU unnecessarily but which seems to have the effect of never allowing the GPU to boost at all when being used by Kodi (tested on Skylake).  
 Hi Milhouse,

I just tried your #0702b and it fixed the jerky playback on both a 1030 celeron and a j5005 gemini lake. 

The jerkiness is still present in the latest libreeelec alphas (which use the latest kodi rc).

Is this because the libreelec guys need to apply the fix to libreelec?

Is the fix likely to be in the first kodi 18 libreelec release - is it best I post over their to make them aware?

Cheers!

"at the same time" - are you sure? Last time I tested on an RPi3+ it was one or the other (and my BT headset is now in Bluetooth Heaven, so no more testing for me).

No, these builds and the LibreELEC alphas have all the kernel fixes that are currently available/known about.

Presumably you have jerky playback in the latest of these test builds, #1205?

If so, it's likely the jerky playback is due to something else, for example see issue #14939 which identifies a pair of problem Kodi PRs, the first of which merged in #0809.

 Thanks for the reply Smile

the issue 14939 doesn't seem to fit really - the problem i'm having is only 24p jerky without osd on - with osd on it's smooth regardless of refresh rate.

24p content from amazon prime addon streaming:

With the display rate set to 60hz -  jerky unless osd in on.
With the display rate set to 50hz -  sometimes smooth, then it goes jerky then smooth again. Smooth always if osd in on.
If I set it to change the refresh rate to the content (start/stop for example) then the tv reports 24hz and it runs smooth with/without the osd.

Same with all hardware acceleration on or off.

I'll try your 1205 build tonight, cheers Smile


TV/refresh rate problem with Athlon 200GE (integ. Vega3) - SirVival - 2018-12-06

Hello.

I build myself a new Kodi PC (my old Beebox N3000 was not strong enough for 4k60fps on Network).

I am using:

- AMD Athlon 200GE (with integrated Vega 3)
- Asrock Fatal1ty X470 Gaming-ITX/ac (it has Intel i211 Network that i prefer)
- 8GB DDR4 2666Mhz (2x4 as dual channel)
- 64GB S-ATA M2 SSD for Libreelec
- 240GB SSD for Win10Pro
- Samsung TV UE55ES6300 (model from 2012)
- Yamaha Receiver Avantage RX-A810

I tried Libreelec 8.2.5MR to install -  but the integrated Graphic was unknown (but ok, it is too new for that version).
I switched over to Libreelec 8.90.008 ALPHA (found the correct CPU and integ. GPU) and installed it successfully, but
i ran into some issues:

I activated the "match screen refresh rate with video source" as usal with my last Libreelec builds.
Most of the times i am switching between videos with different refresh rates (for example 4k/60Hz <-> FullHD/24Hz) i get a black screen
for 2-3 seconds; the TV is reporting "no source/input" and keeps it black.  I am switching to another HDMI source and back to Kodi, getting
another black screen for 2-3seconds and after it all is working fine...
My tests with Alpha 8.90.005-.008 is always the same result.  I switched off the "match screen refresh rate with video source" and the black
screens are gone (what is fine) but then, i am getting micro stuttering in videos because of the nonmatched refresh rate (what is NOT fine).

So i switched over to a Milhouse generic build (#1204) for testing reasons - but with the same black screen issues. (btw. i tested with and without
my Yamaha Receiver between the PC and TV !).

This is my logfile of playing a 720p/25Hz, 1080p/60Hz and 4k/60Hz video (i was looking at the debug graphic thing that was showing up when
activating debug log and looks like the integrated GPU is not synchron with the refresh rate of the videos):


https://www.dropbox.com/s/ukb0whrqi9kuehf/log-2018-12-06-09.16.19.zip?dl=0



Btw: I tested the same videos with Kodi RC1 on Windows 10 without problems (just to test for any hardware problems).

Sorry my mistake the  raspberry pi supports Analog and HDMI audio at the same time

is it possible to have this functionality added to the generic build ?

If you mean you want "Analog + HDMI" support added to x86_64 then I'm not sure, that would be a feature request which you should ask on the LibreELEC forum (in the Feature Request section).


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Simaryp - 2018-12-06

Just as a note. I created an issue on the kodi github, but so far noting really happened.
I would guess that maybe also beside of my bug report the issue could vanish in further kodi updates. Is there something one should look out for to give it a try?
I decided to install 1027 again as long as there is no update, because it gives me a lot less trouble.

Hi Milhouse,

would it be possible to  reupload build #0910, 10-Sep-2017, #909 09-Sep-2017 and #0907, 07-Sep-2017? 
Thanks in advance.

No sorry, unfortunately I don't have it anymore, not even locally.
