Not necessarily. If the fault moves with the sdcard then it's probably due to having slightly different software or settings.
If it stays with the board, then it might be hardware (e.g. power supply related).

If it was power supply related then my TV is knackered! I have two identical Samsung TVs, and am powering a pi from each TV's USB port. Anyway I can't reproduce the fault after a quick swap of the SD cards so will have to do more testing to tomorrow.
Definitely test with a more potent power supply - if I'm dependent on USB-port power I'll always try to use a Y-cable (and 2 USB ports) so that the Pi has about 1A of power rather than the standard 0.5A that a USB port normally provides, and which isn't considered enough to run a stable Pi.

The ones I made with the generator site crash XBMC. One of the ones someone else linked works and looks good. Thanks!
I'm having audio issues with OMXPlayer on the last couple of builds or so. DVDPlayer seems to be fine.

1) I get a loud (VERY LOUD) burst of what sounds like white noise for a fraction of a second when I start a movie playing. Seems it might be an audio buffer 'emptying'.

2) The pitch stability of the audio is horrendous and it sounds like a very worn out VHS tape with lots and lots of wow and flutter. Seasickness inducing.

I am using standard HDMI audio, 2.0, no passthrough, no dual audio, no gui sounds. Happens with XVID/MP3 and MP4(MKV)/AAC files and SD / 720 / 1080.

Debug log playing a SD, XVID, MP3 is here: http://pastebin.com/bjvbabsC

There are lots and lots of entries, while playing, that look like this:

I have the same problem using analogue audio. Maybe it happens when Openelec is changing the sample rate.
Hi Guys

Anyone having lockups when movies finish? Sometimes my movies do not return to the movie list. Sometimes they get to the movie list and then freeze.

Also, anyone have trouble with the xbmc android app crashing?

Thanks

Turn off "enable fixed latency playback mode" in settings/video/acceleration.

Thanks - that stopped the pitch instability.

However, I'm still getting the burst of noise at the start of playing a lot of films.

Well my RPi's are powered by a 2.1A power supply and my USB-hdd have external power. So I don't think it's a power issue. Would the FIQ FSM change the power consumption that much?
I could measure the power on the board but I don't think it will show anything weird.
Since I don't even have a wifi-dongle 2.1A should be more than enough.

One of my friends now reports the same issue, network lockups when he went to 0307 . He's running the storage-partition on a usb-thumb-drive and the system on a SDHC-card. Modest overclock. No Wifi. movies on a NAS.
I made him turn of FIQ_FSM and now he's ok.

Can you report consistent failures with fiq_fsm here:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/forum/viewtop...28&t=70437

jdb may have some follow-up questions or suggestions.
I have a further problem with this latest build - didn't happen with the previous one, but has now occurred three times with this one.

A short time into playing a movie (maybe 5 minutes or so) I see a dialogue box briefly which says something like "/storage successfully removed" and then after a couple of seconds the movie freezes (display remains static), and the RPi becomes unresponsive - no remote control or SSH response.

I will try to get a full debug log of this, but the normal log is not reporting anything unusual.

I'll also try disable FIQ_FSM and report if that helps...

Is /storage on sdcard (or USB or NFS?)
Can you post dmesg log after is disappears.

It's on USB stick.

(2014-03-09, 14:03)popcornmix Wrote: Can you post dmesg log after is disappears.

Can't get access to run dmesg. I have to cycle power to get it responding again (which resets the current dmesg log).

journalctl also only shows the current boot and I can't work out if there is way to see older logs.
ever since the latest build, but probably a few builds earlier also,
I can't seem to get dual audio output working;
I can enable this in the settings menu but the audio output stays at the currently selected device,
being either Analog or HDMI. Both of them work properly, but not at the same time.
