new build, new kernel - unfortunately same old broken hauppauge remote Sad
Hi Millhouse,

Something bad happened with CEC in your latest (or previous build). Today I've upgraded to #1102 (from #1031 I think) and my TV is improperly awaken. It was always put into standby and awaken with Kodi (through CEC) without problem. Today, just after upgrade it just turned on with Kodi but didn't switch to right HDMI input and I had to choose HDMI2 from my TV remote.
popcornmix could you fix the glitch with livetv or revert the commit which causes it. Thanks

Can you identify the first build that causes the problem.
#1025 was first switch to libcec 2.2.0, but there have been a number of CEC changes apart from that, so finding the exact build would be useful.

Sorry, I'll try to do something to resolve this.
I was able to play your dumped files, but the timestamps have already been "corrected" (presumably incorrectly) at this point, so it's hard to work out what they should me.

I really need to make it dump the data straight from the demuxer, before the timestamp correction so I can work out exactly what's happening.
I did start to do that, but it wasn't quite straightforward. I need to revist that.

thanks if i can help in anyway do let me know. I can repeat errors at will just find channel with low reception and move dish a little..

just some basic question ...

Is it sufficient to just copy this release to the SD card (start.elf, kernel.img, SYSTEM) to update any plugin (pvr.hts in this case) at the same time; or do I have to disable / uninstall the plugin and install / configure it once again?

Skipping in recordings got much better; not sure whether this is due to this fix or updates on the TVHeadend server side.

Oh and of course: Thank You (and all others) for the time invested in OpenELEC / KODI!

Yes. It first happened in #1101. I'm reverting to #1031 for now.

Just copy the DL file to the "Update" folder on your RPi with SMB and reboot. It should upgrade automatically after that

So, the Hifiberry dev has responded, saying he's tested a digi on 3.17 under raspbian and that it worked correctly. I've just tried the 1102 build and it's as before, but I'm using a DAC+ rather than the digi - I believe they're the same chips but could be relevant.

Is anyone here using a Hifiberry digi on these builds and does it work? Or is there some difference between the kernel config on raspbian and openelec which is causing the problem?

I can't see an easy way to test raspbian with 3.17 but I've had a look at the kernel configs to see if I can spot the difference... there are quite a lot....

Raspbian 3.17 kernel config (I think)

Openelec kernel config

Sound related options from Raspbian:

The items with !! after them were not listed at all in the Openelec config, I've added those lines.
There's also a bunch of other options enabled in the openelec config which aren't listed in the raspbian one.

So... I have some thoughts but nothing conclusive. I'll go ask the dev how he built his kernel as the raspbian config looks a bit sparse for the DAC to work, missing PCM512x for example

I don't imagine any of the !! modules are required for Hifiberry, but best to check with the Hifiberry dev.

Don't forget to disable GPU accelerated resampling which may cause white noise (although I suspect currently you're not getting that far).

Just to chime in on this one.

I'm fairly confident the issue doesn't hail from the hifiberry driver, but instead from some other change made in the beginning of October:

Firstly, it is not the hifiberry driver but instead the wm8804 codec which fails. The hifiberry depends on wm8804 and fails subsequently.

Secondly, after having looked through the pi kernel repo (github) it seems that the error message is actually produced by core.c (regulator). The actual error message strings are not found in the wm8804.c / hifiberry*.c files but instead in core.c.

Thirdly (though this is only circumstantial i guess) - I found the two pull requests relating to the introduction of support for wolfson audio and fwiw the discussion there mentions exactly the same error messages that is produced now. I'd guess that some change made then (and perhaps committed with the accidental accept of the first pull request) has broken support for the hifiberry.

Best regards

Yes, each build contains the entire OpenELEC system including the latest versions of the stock pvr addons, which includes pvr.hts.

If you install extra, non-standard, addons (pvr or otherwise) then these will not be updated by updating OpenELEC.

To update, just drop the tar file into your Update folder and reboot, there's no need to extract the files.

Raspbian 3.17 kernel config (I think)

Openelec kernel config

All I can do right now (starting with the next build) is to stop reverting the Wolfson config options (patch) so that the test builds are as close to "stock" from a kernel point of view as possible (the stock kernel config still includes these Wolfson options even though the Wolfson driver is no longer included in 3.17.y).

If the Hifiberry developers are able to identify the problem with the 3.17.y kernel branch and OpenELEC config options that would be great, and I'd be happy to include any changes they propose if it can move this issue forward.
