OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2

Yeah that also suggests the changes that deemed that code redundant were patched to the kernel, so I guess something has changed there. If you're interested I've written a quick addon to take care of running the code at boot

Thank you for this addon, it works perfectly!

I believe the sdcard corruption issue (even with overclock) is solved in recent firmwares.

GREAT! I'll try that, thanks. Also if it possible to resize /storage partition on sdcard to use all of sdcard?

Now that SD corruption is hopefully a thing of the past, use the SD card for both booting and storage (FAT and ext4 partitions):
Code:
boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/mmcblk0p2  ssh quiet

or just booting (single FAT partition) with /storage mounted over NFS:
Code:
ip=dhcp boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=NFS=192.168.1.3:/media/data5/OpenELEC/Storage ssh quiet

New OpenELEC Gotham build: #0812b (obsolete)

rpi512:~ # lsb_release
OpenELEC_Gotham (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20131208191418-r16511

Same as previous build with the following additions:

Fix for calibration not working when TV supports 3d modes.
Fix for mono playback of HSBS/HTAB videos.
Added Sam's airplay PR.

Is anyone able to confirm if this build fixes the NFS scraping problem (PR 3772)? If not will drop the patch from future builds.

I don't have a 3D TV or an iDevice so feedback on these additions also most welcome.

Airplay running with this Build, THANKS !!!!!
I test with youtube ipad app.

If you search for "bride" you should find an example of it failing!

crash is h.264
bride is vc1

You need to buy a licence for vc1 (http://www.raspberrypi.com/ click buy codecs, it's only £1.20)

Yes I have just spent time getting my disks back out from storage and re-ripping them using makemkv
and discovered (rather to my shock) that not all Blu-Rays are the same.. some are:
VC-1,
Mpeg4/H.264
and even Mpeg2
Luckily as you say for a couple of £ I can get to decode all of them!

Just did not reliase, so please forgive the stupied request here!

What is nice is that by putting them into .mkv they seem to stream over a 100mbit link from my media server
on my RPi, which I thought it should if you do the math, but I could not get to work as native .iso (buffering stop
start etc plays 5 secs stops abd would re-buffer)
[EDITE: *** WRONG even over clocked to 900, the cpu shows 100% and the playback is stop start, I don't know
how a came to say the above, I must of choosen the copy on disk of a low bit rate blu-ray?]

[Edit 2: got it working with NFS using FreeNFS from my windows box, but you need to use a
autostart.sh script to perform the mount in openelec]


Again guys thanks, this has become an amazing platform due to your hard work!

I can't get any addons to update/install at the moment. The last one I tried was the xtv-SAF skin, which updated but the update doesn't work with Gotham, so I deleted it and re-installed the old version. I've rebooted a couple of times as well but now when trying to update, after about 5s it changes to show 0% downloading, then another 5-10s laters changes back to Update available.

Likewise when I tried to install Weather Underground, after appearing to do something, it just reverted to the list with it still not installed.

Server issues atm it seems, probably the cause? - http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=179987&page=3

This seems a good build to me... seems to have fixed corruption of pixel ratio after gui calibration and subsequent reboot... great speed also.Big GrinBig Grin

Sadly it's not fixed... no scraping through NFS. SMB works tho... Sad

Airplay from youtube iOS app works perfectly.
Airplay from iTunes (on a mac) is choppy and controls are sluggish.
