I´m curious, what´s the deal with DESKTOP resolution?

Also, planning a late spring cleaning on my dropbox, is there anything I should save (specific builds or perhaps a couple of builds from each week or similar) or could I delete all Gotham builds?
Perhaps its smart to save some older builds for debugging...?

I´m curious, what´s the deal with DESKTOP resolution?

I was testing forcing certain resolutions, and providing a couple of standard ones (VGA60, 720p60 and 1080p) when no EDID was available,
and was surprised that the list of resolutions had one more than I was expecting.
I believe one of the resolutions in the list is a duplicate of one of the others (I think always the first).

Lets assume you just have the no-EDID resolutions available (VGA60, 720p60 and 1080p), and VGA60 is the default boot resolution.
What you see in the list is:
VGA, VGA, 720p and 1080p
If I then use hdmi_group/hdmi_mode to change the preferred resolution to 720p, and boot xbmc, you see in the list:
720p, VGA, 720p and 1080p

So if you pick the first 720p, you actually get the boot resolution which may change if you play with hdmi_group/hdmi_mode.
If you choose the second 720p in the list, you get a fixed 720p, independent of what the boot resolution was.

Because this behaviour took me about half an hour to work out, I thought it's best to label the boot/default/desktop resolution specifically.
DESKTOP is how this special mode is labelled internally in xbmc, so I chose that as the label.
Ideally it should be using a translatable string, although this commit is just experimental to see if anyone notices, and if they do whether they prefer the explicit label.

I'd prefer you kept them. It's sometimes useful when someone reports a bug started a couple of months ago to get them to find the exact build.
If dropbox is full and you have to make room, then keep a local copy in case someone needs it.

Google drive provides more free storage than dropbox.
github can also be (ab)used for storing a history of binary files (as we do with older firmware versions).

Thanks for the explanation.
And I can keep the builds on my dropbox for now, I have plenty of space so it´s no problem.

Unfortunately, my problem with big WTV-Files in H264 is still exist.

@popcornmix: Did you find a minute to look at that problem?

Youtube dosen´t play videos with the last release, and the DevUpdate App doesn´t start anymore.

Is this Problem known?

Additional info and testing (different players etc.), see post #1

To install XBMC build, SSH to Pi:

Fair warning to UPnP users:
Played around wlth any UPnP settings enbled and get crashes on all playback via library (edit: not UPnP library, seems as it don¨t matter).
All UPnP settings disabled and it runs fine.
Last line on log before crash:
Code:
19:46:33 677.422363 T:3038200464   DEBUG: UPnP: Building didl for object 'nfs://blablablba...i'
This commit might be the fix (not included in this build but it is in master now): https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/fbd6...91ef697f9a

Is this a showstopper for those who use remote apps (such as yatse) for controlling XBMC ?
i.e not sharing librairy via UPnP but allow remote control with it is fine ?
Reply
Those remote apps use the webserver and the json api so it´s fine.
I use it too and it works.

Edit: I don´t know if yatse use UPnP for something as I don+t use it, but if you enable "Allow control of XBMC via UPnP" (instead of the webserver etc.) you might see crashes, I did.
Edit2: This affects all platforms I believe (at least OSX and iOS too).

I've just noticed my pi running out of disk space and its from all the test builds I have been installing.

Under /home/pi/.upgrade there are a ton of directories containing each build.

I presume the old ones can be deleted? Should they be there? Should they be automatically removed?

Code:
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4096 Apr  6 15:09 xbmc-13-20140406-nc3
drwxr-xr-x  3 pi   pi   4096 Apr  9 16:11 xbmc-13-20140409-nc3
drwxr-xr-x  3 pi   pi   4096 Apr 13 18:58 xbmc-13-20140413-nc3
drwxr-xr-x  3 pi   pi   4096 Apr 20 18:36 xbmc-14-20140420-nc3

You have to delete them, I think you can do it via the Raspbmc addon, however you still have the archive in /home/pi/.
You don´t need them if you don´t use them, and if you need to debug and install an old build you can just come back here and install it again.

Fastest way to delete them is probably to do it via SSH.

Archive:
Code:
rm /home/pi/name_of_build.tar.gz

Build:
Code:
sudo rm -R /home/pi/.upgrade/name_of_build
Reply
Thanks. Will delete them.
