20 Nov 2019 - TVDB Scraper v3.2.0 is now available which reinstates scraping. TVDB are still in the process of fixing a number of bugs so there may still be further breakages. See this post. 2901570 (post)

I figured out an alternative to that patch but still working out a clean way to add it to Intel's driver code. It fixes both the missing 44.1 kHz audio on some TV/AVR and the frame skips at 59.940 refresh. Original patch is not required so pipeline can stay at 12-bit like the stock 4.7 kernel. Dithering is disabled so I don't think it looks any different than 8-bit (at least on my TV). Extra bits are just padded. I only test on HDMI so your DisplayPort->HDMI setup might still have those two bugs I mentioned but should work as well as older OpenElec builds for you.

That 8-bit patch is still a good idea to keep in the long run since Kodi is unlikely to take advantage of 12-bit for a long time. Since I don't have access to any Intel DisplayPort hardware, you will need someone else to look at why it doesn't work for you. The DP code is very complicated to debug. Hopefully Intel can fix it.

But 10-bit is not that far fetched (already in play). So maybe get something in there that takes 10-bit in mind also.

I will try and see if the lpscon patch Milhouse put in there changed anything. Thanks for that btw Milhouse! Smile

EDIT: No change to the 8-bit patch issue for me with the lpscon patch there.

@Milhouse you need to find another way to implement that 8-bit kernel patch before you release. I can't be the only one out there with a NUC6i7KYK. This probaly will hit user with a DP->HDMI 2.x adapter also (I have that on another box for testing also).

Or will you just leave this to the kernel and intel devs to fix?

Not being critial, just asking and suggesting Smile I am fine with using #0827. Not that buggy for me. But I will not be able to test new features.

Pretty much, yes. You've informed the Intel developers of the issue here so let's see if they revise their patch, or create more.

@millhouse since build #904 I have not been able to get Chromium to launch. If i revert back to build #830 all is good. I have tried the latest build but still no luck. I'm running on a Intel NUC "skylake" i3

Argh, it's the same problem when we last tried to bump freetype. Will revert the freetype bump in future builds until there's a solution. Thanks for reporting.

Great, hopefully it gets sorted in time.

Which was not to be expected.Only upstream can help you.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
Just wanted to say MANY thanks to all of you!

Running these builds for many months on my ancient ZOTAC ID18 with CULV 1007U. Had always occasional micro-stutters here and there, not dramatic, acceptable.

But now I saw the governor discussions in this thread. Found that on my CPU "powersave" was the default and switched to "performance" in autostart.sh. Guess what, stutters gone. Absolutely no issues any longer.

Now I'm a happy camper. Smile Thanks again.

Diddle.


PS.: maybe this should be the LE default or even configurable in LE settings?
ondemand is the CPUFreq default configured in the kernel, but the kernel ignores this setting depending on the hardware. If your hardware is based on a relatively modern Intel CPU then you're probably using the Intel P-State system instead of CPUFreq which defaults to powersave (overriding the CPUFreq default setting). With performance mode enabled you may find your CPU never downclocks so be careful it doesn't have any temperature issues.

@millhouse, dropping the freetype has fixed Chromium as you stated. Thanks again.
