A colleague of mine (MonsterCross who knows much more about this than me) has been experimenting with stretching the kernel based on the scaling ratio.
I'm waiting for him to say he's happy with it.

There's been enough response to say that the current default kernel is not the best option, and the default will be changed (probably to the Mitchell Netravali).
See http://www.cs.utexas.edu/~fussell/course...tchell.pdf for info on this.

I'll probably plumb in the sharpness control to the dotted line in Figure 13 of the linked paper which allows you to tweak the kernel to be sharper (but ringier/noisier) or blurrier.

I can also connect a few of the other kernels to a scaling kernel control in the video OSD.

Interesting, thanks! I will have a look at that pdf and see how much of it I understand... looking forward to the next version. Smile

Can those with NFS problems since #0401 please test this new buildand confirm if NFS is now working - the download is here.

I haven't had a chance to test your latest OpenELEC. However, on my ARCH x64 Server I was able to build the latest XBMC from master with libnfs 1.8.0 and my shares are working. I'll test your 402 on my rpi's and report back as well, but I'm pretty sure we can narrow it down to libnfs.

To get my Android tablet with Xbmc 13b3 to work with NFS on my Synology NAS I had to check "map all users to admin" or something like that on my Synology (I think it worked without it in beta 2). My Pi with MilhouseVH's latest OpenElec worked anyway though....weird. Just thought I'd mention it...
