OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2
(2014-03-14, 18:37)marcavatar Wrote: Hello guys I have a problem. Since I upgraded to the latest version of the 130314 audio passthrough does not work anymore. I have connected to an amplifier and raspberry until now I have never had any problems. Now when I start a video practically crackles constantly while if I remove the passthrough works. What should I do I go back to the previous version or is there a way to fix things. Happened to you? Thank you.
if you upgraded from a version that is more than a few weeks old, have you carefully followed the instructions accompanying the download link, respecting passthrough?
POPCORNMIX Then I tried to load either version (20140312) who (20140311) and the result was the same, every time I loaded a video with audio passthrough did not load but it felt infinitely crackle then I'm back to full version (20140308) and everything is back in place. I do not understand the problem.

Can you confirm if it is a firmware issue?
Copy start.elf and fixup.dat from the latest Milhouse build onto your working 20140308 build and report if it still works?
Yes, the version (20140308) works well while the following versions with dts audio and AC-3 passthrough does not work you will hear a continuous hissing sound. By removing the passthrough back to work.

Just to confirm, you have tested 20140308 image with firmware manually updated to latest?
I just upgraded to the previous version without doing anything else.
And what happens if you update the firmware?
88,2 kHz music playback no longer works; last worked on
  • OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140308023729-r17871-g8a2f22b (it even almost plays 6-channel file on non-overclocked Pi)
No longer working on
  • OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140311001839-r17885-ge97abed,
  • OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140312020133-r17896-g10b90c5 and
  • OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140313233333-r17917-g5bef63b
Receiver shows as if there is no audio signal. Sorry, I've noticed this just now and downgraded until it started working again.
It happens that I have updated to the latest version and audio dts and ac-3 that I play with an external amplifier is gone replaced by a continuous whistling. I'm so back to version 20140308 is the only one that works the following ones do not go I tried them all. hello

What does "tvservice -a" report?
Does it work if you set "limit sampling rate" to 48kHz (http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Audio_Settings)

Code:
OpenELEC:~ # tvservice -a
     PCM supported: Max channels: 8, Max samplerate: 192kHz, Max samplesize 24 bits.
     AC3 supported: Max channels: 6, Max samplerate:  48kHz, Max rate  640 kb/s.
     DTS supported: Max channels: 6, Max samplerate:  96kHz, Max rate 1536 kb/s.
  DTS_HD supported: Max channels: 8, Max samplerate: 192kHz, Max rate    8 kb/s.

44,1 kHz, 96 kHz and 192 kHz does work, just 88,2 kHz doesn't.

If I choose Output configuration: Fixed and Limit sampling rate (kHz): any, apart from 88,2 kHz, there is stuttering audio, like repeating half a second audio, half a second pause. Tested with OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140313233333-r17917-g5bef63b.

...and it was as simple as that! Thanks ijsbeer79, and everyone else whose efforts make this a great entertainment platform.

New OpenELEC Gotham build: #0315
(Supercedes previous build)

# lsb_release
OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140315060244-r17928-g2bbee7c

Based on tip of XBMC master (fd2b481, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (2bbee7c, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for a71fdbf which I've replaced with a static spinner to avoid hammering the GUI)
  • Includes kernel 3.13.y-next commits (see below for details on enabling FIQ_FSM patch)
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches (due to conflict with newclock3)
  • Default setting for "Show RSS Feed" changed to disabled
  • Disabled "Total Duration" in Confluence (see build #0221 for details)
  • ALSA is enabled and any suitable hardware should be available in XBMC Audio Settings
  • Includes newclock3: "More efficient infobool expression evaluator" (reverted in stock OpenELEC)
  • Includes newclock3: "Allow small audio packets to be concatenated to make better use of audio fifo" (reverted in stock OpenELEC)
Build Highlights:
  1. OpenELEC:
    • connman-1.22 reverted
    • Fix ffmpeg ssl - should mean https streaming is working again
    • Inlcude Memphiz ios7airplayfix (PR4414)
  2. XBMC:
    • Fix memory leak in Python bindings (PR4290)
    • Several logging fixes for JSON and PVR
    • Accepted the following patches from newclock3 branch:
      • [omxplayer] Always enable timestamp fifo mode (PR4356)
      • [omxplayer] Reduce rate of clock change to reduce video stutters (PR4355)
      • [omxplayer] When setting fullscreen flag we don't want noaspect (PR4419)
  3. newclock3:
    • [PiSink] Reset channel mapping and passthrough options on exit

Additional Testing Notes:
  1. Testers should try adding the following entry to their advancedsettings.xml:
    Code:
    <advancedsettings>
      <video>
        <defaultplayer>dvdplayer</defaultplayer>
        <defaultdvdplayer>dvdplayer</defaultdvdplayer>
      </video>
    </advancedsettings>
    and report if it is better/worse than omxplayer. You can still play files with omxplayer using the context-menu "Play using... OMXPlayer".

  2. The following settings are no longer required in config.txt and should be removed:
    Code:
    no_hdmi_resample=1
    hdmi_stream_channels=1
    no_resample_audio is now a default, and hdmi_stream_channels is switched based on audio content. For the time being when using passthrough, 2.0 speaker layout should continue to be used (you will still get 5.1 with AC3/DTS).

  3. The FIQ_FSM patch is now enabled by default in OpenELEC master. See the FIQ_FSM announce thread for details.

    One new feature, currently disabled by default, is accelerated support of high-speed isochronous transactions (webcams, real time devices, etc.). There's a possibility this could be used by ALSA or DVB modules (although not always) which may affect some users (hopefully for the better). If you might benefit from this, enable by adding the following option to the end of the line in your /flash/cmdline.txt file:
    Code:
    dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_mask=0x7

Just wondering what people are putting in their advancedsettings nowdays? I haven't updated to any of the newest builds for about 3-4 months but am currently running a Millhouse build from December with customized rbej settings.

Is readbufferfactor used anymore? What about dirtyregions?

Thanks in advance!

The only settings I suggest adding to advancedsettings.xml are included in each release note, and they're only there to help with testing of experimental features. Other than MySQL settings there is very little reason to even have an advancedsettings.xml file. The old rbej settings should not be used nowadays, so just remove them.
