No, advanced settings are hidden by default. Press left button in settings window and choose advanced settings level.

Heh yes, even on expert they are gone. Guessing you aren't running the newest build?
Use confluence.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

Thanks much fritsch and wsnipex!

Hi,
maybe it's time to upgrade my A10-5700 from AMD drivers.
May you provide some more info on your configuration?
1. Distribution
2. Kernel
3. Result with 1080 videos
4. Personal feeling
5. Etc
Seems like UVD support Hi10P.

I have installed Ubuntu with XBMC on my machine with an AMD A6-6400K CPU, but my display is flickering on and on.

Thank you fritsch for your help.

don't forget to post this on the freedesktop bug report page -- https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63997
the only way we'll get this fixed is by getting them more information!

thnks
Linux Mint 18 LTS 64-bit - Kodi 17 Beta6
Odroid-C2 - Libreelec v7.90.009
@pit_bull:
Thx for the VC-1 sample. This is already fixed in linux.git and will come with next release.

Concerning hi10p. It is in deed true. Two fields only are to be programmed. UVD has most of it, as has the statetracker, but libvdpau needs a change to support it.

Fixed Kernels for the VC-1 issue:

Code:
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55728161/linux-image-3.12.0-rc6%2B_0.4_amd64.deb
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55728161/linux-headers-3.12.0-rc6%2B_0.4_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i *0.4*deb

Please give me some feedback, if it works like expected (no regressions) I will update the front entry.

1. 13.04 mini as the base, same as the guide, and it was the newest at the time. A few days before 13.10 popped up.
2. 3.12-rc6 from this thread currently, only had HDMI audio issues with the 3.11 line
3. No issues, if you have any pieces of content you'd like tested I'd be happy to. The one from earlier in this thread of the Hungarian childrens group was under 30% CPU IIRC, played flawlessly
4. Had a few kinks at first related to audio and resolution, but as of right now I have no issues and am running everything over HDMI to an audio/video receiver on that kernel.
5. For some reason I have to force 1920x1080 in my xorg.conf, but that may be related to the EDID passthrough of the receiver, or an oddity with my Samsung DLP. It shows in the list of available modes from the TV, but for some reason it wouldn't display properly. At any rate after hardcoding it I have no issues. I have high quality scalers enabled, and run Lanczos3 on content that scales more than 20%, and also have glamor enabled for 2D accel all without issues and no CPU spikes to speak of. With the A10 I couldn't see you having any performance issues, bugs withstanding.

Hey, just letting you know I haven't been ignoring you... I've been planning to work on a guide to post in the gentoo forums.. but I just haven't had a chance yet.

To get you started, follow the oss radeon gentoo wiki. It includes the radeon.audio patch too. Test alsa to ensure your hdmi audio is working... which is a good starting point. I should be able to work on something early next week, unless someone beats me to it.

Tomorrow morning I will try it... see you
Another day, another kernel.

I am still working on the audio clocks and the runaway with passthrough audio, the following kernel uses the same values as fglrx does, only relevant for evergreen:

Code:
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55728161/linux-image-3.12.0-rc6%2B_0.7_amd64.deb https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55728161/linux-headers-3.12.0-rc6%2B_0.7_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i *0.7*deb

For me with this minimal patch, all the stuff is working as expected: http://sprunge.us/QagM

What would you recommend at this moment with the new radeon drivers, AMD or Intel?
I remember this by fritsch in the XvBA topic so I'm wondering if there is any major advantage of using AMD with the new radeon driver.

Unfortunately I can't get the driver to work on my A4-3400 so I'm looking for some new hardware for the HTPC (the A4-3400 will serve as an upgrade for an old desktop).
Keep the A4 and follow the howto - done. No need to buy anything new.
