  • Possible fix for Hyperion/Lightberry problems (enable SPIDEV config option)
Thanks for the quick fix. Hyperion/lightberry works with this build!
Upgrading the build server to Ubuntu 14.10 has turned out to be a very bad idea - no new build for tonight.

I went through the old builds and 0901 plays it fine, with 0902 the video freezes shortly before the end (later than with the current builds, so not clearly visible with the sample in my previous post). Not sure if this info is helpful, that was the switch from newclock3 to newclock4...

I have looked into this. The issue is the HW decoder can buffer a reasonable amount of data (a couple of MB).
For lowish bitrate streams this can equate to a few seconds of video.

The other issue is that dvdplayer doesn't deal very well with HW codecs (which typically decode asynchronously and may buffer data).
Once dvdplayer has submitted the last video frame of the file, it never checks with the codec for additional frames.

I believe all HW codecs lose the final frames because of this. It just turns out that due to the larger amount of buffering in MMAL decoder it loses more.

I'll see if something can be done.
We could limit the amount data pushed into the codec (but this may harm performance when the stream is difficult).
We could try to make dvdplayer continue prodding the codec after the final frame has been submitted (theoretically better, but a more intrusive change).

Sorry to hear that Milhouse, I always found straight Debian or Mint to be a little less "messed with". Or gentoo if you're into deep configuration.

Any idea if this affects x86 too?

I have installed XBMCbuntu and upgraded it to Kodi... No problem there. So, for now I can relate this to Kodi on ARM based system.
Hello,

I've got a raspi b+ and with one of the latest version I have a small problem with the startlogo "openelec".
It is disturbed, but the unix.text message ".... milhouse version...." it correct displayed.
And after that it displayed all correctly.

Hard to do anything with a description like "disturbed". A photo may be helpful.

What's the make/model/specs of the tv?

In OpenELEC, can you run the following two commands and paste the link:
Code:
tvservice -d /tmp/edid.dat
edidparser /tmp/edid.dat | pastebinit

I have installed XBMCbuntu and upgraded it to Kodi... No problem there. So, for now I can relate this to Kodi on ARM based system.

And today I tried using pvr.tvh addon from <https://github.com/adamsutton/xbmc-pvr-addons> - and problem is gone. So, this is problem with default pvr.hts addon in Kodi.
You probably want to work with opdenkamp/adamsutton to identify the fix and ensure it goes upstream (or if the issue only exists upstream, the issue removed and/or fixed).

Is "libmad" in OE?
Code:
find / -name "*libmad*"
returns nothing. Shouldn't it be there? In this post it is mentioned: 1856007 (post)
Quote:Build Details:

OpenELEC:
libmad: build static (168238a2)
BTW: I'm trying to get squeeze and scummvm for retroarch working Wink
Thx in advance
