there are at least 2 ppas out there for frodo.(1 is in my sig, the other is Nathan Rennies) Select one, get the debian.tar.gz and run debuild -us -uc or use pbuilder.
Or use one of the ppas directly Smile

the one in your sig doesn't actually seem to be for froyo, its mostly the same as the eden one from xbmc-packaging's github, which i'm surprised works.

i might just stick with tarring up the source directory, so if anything goes wrong with a new build i can just untar and install the old build.

i just can't get the hang of debian packaging and it really annoys me, as redhat packaging is so simple (and no i don't want to try alien on an rpm!)

there is nothing special needed for Frodo in comparison to Eden. Just a couple of new dependencies and new configure switches.

I'm running "xbmcbuntu-11.9-wsnipex-testing-v7.iso" from Xbmcfreak on an Acer Revo 3610 with audio over HDMI to a 5.1 channel amp. Sound is working fine for both music and videos.

However in the XBMC interface, with nothing playing, the audio device gets reopened every 10 seconds which causes the AV amp to resync. The following is repeated every 10 seconds in the log:

While this is happening CPU usage is around 25-30%.

Any ideas?

i managed to make some packages using the debian directory from Nathan Rennie-Waldock's PPA and overrode some of the flags to make a more minimal installation and also fix a couple of things that wouldn't compile due to dependency problems (e.g. asap-codec).

Code:
export XBMC_RELEASE=yes
export XBMC_CONFIG_EXTRA_OPTIONS="--disable-crystalhd --disable-avahi --disable-airplay --disable-airtunes --disable-afpclient --disable-mysql --disable-optical-drive --disable-libbluray --disable-dvdcss --enable-ccache --disable-upnp --disable-webserver --disable-libcec --disable-asap-codec"

You are not alone. I seek it's a common problem on linux/alsa (or only with nvidia chips). It seems that AE devs mainly don't use linux/alsa.
Perhaps it's related to this PR 1548 (PR). Their is 10sec timeout mentioned in comments.

Quote:2) "soft" Suspend - slips into idle mode 10 seconds after last stream or sound played - reduces battery consumption / CPU load and releases audio context as above. Signified by m_softSuspend == true && 10 sec delay elapsed.

isn't this the issue that's worked around by adding the following to ~/.xbmc/userdata/advancedsettings.xml :

Code:
<advancedsettings>
<audio>
   <streamsilence>1</streamsilence>
</audio>
</advancedsettings>

Unfortunately not, I had already enabled the <streamsilence> option but the problem persists.

Listen guys the Audio devs are mia, case no one noticed, so open bugs in trac if they dont exist already and sit back as this is going to be a while.

Real life eh. Image please....

Hi all,

I have a problem with detection of HDMI output.

First of all my configuration:
HTPC based upon ASRock E350M1/USB3 Fusion motherboard.
Ubuntu 12.04 up to date as 12/11/2012.
AMD Catalyst 12.6.
XBMC Frodo (xbmc-xvba) via wsnipex's PPA, up to date as 12/11/2012.
The HTPC is connected via HDMI to a Denon AVR-1611. Denon is connected to the TV via HDMI, and to a simple 2.0 speaker configuration.

HDMI device is not correctly recognized, for example the maximum sample rate is set to 48 kHz. From the XBMC log:

Output of aplay -l.

So I assume that HDMI output it is card0, device 3, subdevice 0. Output of cat /proc/asound/card0/eld#0.0.

Output of cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0.

Any idea?

Hi all,

I'm with snipex's PPA (XBMC 12 Alpha 7)... Ubuntu Quantal.
I'm using a fairly recent HTPC (i3 IvyBridge) and I'm having non-smoothing audio playback when using high definition samples (es. http://www.hdta.info/demo/HMRW2496.flac ).
It's not card related as far as I can tell (I've tried both digital out via HDMI and thru a FiiO E-10 DAC, analog out).
It's something already reported or fixed in main ?

I'm not english native so my english sucks... badly, and I know.

I think the problem is now solved on my system. I've installed the new beta from here:

http://xbmcfreak.binkey.nl/xbmcbuntu-12....a01-v1.iso

I also added the x-swat repository to get the latest nVidia driver:

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Hopefully this will work for you too!

Hello,

I have latest ppa:nathan-renniewaldock/xbmc-nightly
installed on http://www.asrock.com/nettop/Intel/Visio...%20Series/ with xbmcubuntu latest kernel source compiled (3.6.6 #2).
Now i encounter AAC clicking noise problems over optical SPDIF out (LPCM) on silent parts when I play encodes from http://horriblesubs.info/. (Sorry for the URL but then you can check it out for yourself!)
I have also clicking noise when i use the built in select sound in the menu.
All other groups releasing encoding AAC don't have that issue. The only difference is that they take the audio from
the commercial website crunchyroll which is probably using a commercial encoder so I think there is the issue.

P.S.: the old stable release 11 is working without issues except not compatible to 10bit.

I hope you guys know a solution.

bye!

I repeat myself http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1236889

Please guys posting anything here in forums is no help developers are MIA, open reports at http://trac.xbmc.org/newticket if it doesn't exist already.
