Do you mean this bug?
Quote: FIXED in future v13 Navigation sounds (clicks and such when you move around in the GUI) are not supported. Sound from music and videos are unaffected by this.

In my case when I have system sound (navigation sound), I have music as well.

No, I was pointing at this:
2.6 TV is not detected unless powered on first

In your case it's the receiver isn't detected when it's in standby. You need to extract the edid.dat when it's working and configure the pi to read the edid from the edid.dat file.

Okay I'll try that and report back.

Well done popcornmix, you got it.
I did the trick and I get system sound and music working at all full restart.
Unfortunately the first time I press a remote button, I have an infinity of fake press with the "TIC" navigation sound repeating. I have to press other button lot of time to stop it.
This behaviour happens few time (2-4). After the bug disappears and It's working well.

I did the test few times after hot reboot

I'd guess you know this issue and the remedy.

OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140228213243-r17825-g1744311

It's every build after it that has the issue. Annoyingly, there is nothing in the logs that show what could be going on, so, in the first instance, does anyone else see this. Secondly, could there be something in the later builds that's hammering the CPU that could cause it to overheat? I've posted my overclock settings before, and I don't want to reduce any unless totally necessary.

Final thing, no matter what I do, DVD player does not work for HD live tv.

Any help appreciated, thanks.
Same here, random system freezes while watching mkv's.

Same here, because it's random, creating a log is very difficult (I have tried). To reproduce is difficult, also. Because it's not always happening. What I see is that it happens mostly somewhere after 45minutes. When it happens the cpu is dropped from 80-90% to 10%.

updated to beta 3.95.2, xbmc stuck in bootloop. 3.95.1 was working. i'm new to the raspberry pi and openelec in general. i'm running storage from a USB stick, having changed the cmdline to

boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/sda1 ssh quiet

anyone have any ideas/fixes for the bootloop?

thanks!

You probably want to post in this thread if you're having a problem with an official Beta build - this thread is for discussion of experimental builds and is busy enough without also trying to fix problems with official builds!

Well, it looks like the N10 and N10 nano (which I have) require different drivers. The N10 nano needs rtl8192cu which is not (AFAIK) part of the stock or beta builds. RaspBMC picks it up straightaway though.

Back to the drawing board, compiling is beyond me...!

Thanks again Millhouse.

You may want to open a new issue on the OpenELEC github in that case, as the rtl8192cu driver is supposed to be supported already.

Since this build, http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1643581, videos have been playing at the wrong speed (about %25 too fast). LiveTV (tvheadend) plays mostly fine, but occasionally speeds up and slows down. I noticed an earlier post that suggested I disable, settings->video->acceleration->“Enable fixed latency playback mode” which fixed the problem. However, with this disabled, LiveTV has a slight but consistent stutter (lag / shudder / jerk) that occurs at a rate of about 110 times per min.

When I add metadata with an up to date version of Subler (for Mac) it also works. Will try to trim and re-add metadata or to remux the movie. File is 1,5 Gbytes, will take awhile to upload it to Dropbox, but can do it, its not a problem.

With some help from Fernetmenta, we have a fix pushed to newclock3.
It affected (some) video files that also included jpegs.

Is it as simple as this to activate alsa (and external USB sound !!) on Openelec 4.0 beta??

Till now your build is the only one I found where my external soundcard (Terratec) works like a charm without any crackling or noise. Or are the other changes contributing to this great performance as well?

[For my project I try to get pycurl and RPi.GPIO working. Compilation on 4.0 beta works. But I don't know which way to go now - enable alsa (and this is my main interest) on the standard or are there ways to inject to code into your builds?
What I did already is to manually put the code into SYSTEM. Unfortunately the update (SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5) does not work. Replacing the SYSTEM file on the sd-card is fine but then it refuses the root password via SSH. Strange. I have to dig into this but maybe someone has an explanation, and advise.]
I have this working. Learned that it just needs the kernel as well for an update. Big Grin
So I will stick on your builds with my little changes.

Thanks for your work
