OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
@popcornmix - I've done a quick bisect and it's the three AE commits that are responsible for the audio distortion when using dvdplayer and paplayer:
  • AE: accept planar formats and timestamps at input
  • dvdplayer audio: simplify interface to AE, feed timestamps
  • paplayer: adapt to interface change of AE, feed entire frames into AE
Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.

Ah yes, the resampling code now gets given planar float samples. I need to add support for that. Dropping:
https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commi...e7e6d2bab7
will fix it.
In addition to the above commit, I also had to drop the following two commits that no longer apply cleanly:

https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commi...794190497b [PiResample] Work around AE not providing correct src_bits
https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commi...8c1158af0a [PiSink] Remove unneeded header and use CAEChannelInfo directly

But now at least dvdplayer/paplayer audio is working again. Will wait for a newclock3 rebase before pushing a new build.

Build Highlights:

Fix for FIQ FSM to stop network dropping out. Please report positive/negative results if you were affected by this.
Reduce number of video frames allocated by 2 with dvdplayer and omxcodec (saves 6M of gpu_mem).

In my case it seems that #0528 fixed the problem with fiq FSM. Saw a TV show without freezes. Will make further testing to see if was luck.

Can anyone who has had (non-passthrough) multichannel channel mapping problems please test this? It should be fixed.
edit

stupid user mistake Wink
Hey, all. I was having issues with my network remotes constantly dropping connection rather frequently (like more than a few times a minute) I chatted with Milhouse and they advised me to try an updated dev build. It fixed my issue nicely.

ssh to your pi
cd /storage/.update
wget <update file link>
reboot your pi

or

sftp pi
put <local update file> /storage/.update/
quit
reboot

All should be well.

Thanks all for the hard work!

Anyone else seeing horrible framerate drops with CEC with the last few builds?

I have an LG 55LN5310 and when SimpLink (LG's CEC) is turned on in my TV options, the framerate feels like it's in the 5-10fps range (CPU usage is fine). SimpLink off and my PI is smoother than ever. I've tried nuking my .xbmc/resetting the HDMI handshake but there's no difference.

...I don't normally have SimpLink on anyways as CEC hasn't worked since I added a Marantz SR5004 AVR.
Would it be possible to include the following work-around patch? https://github.com/chbmuc/xbmc/commit/6e5822d

It should fix the libcec issue where CEC actions get applied twice quite often with my Panasonic TV since OE 4. It's likely that a work-around for the issue doesn't work in libcec any longer as you can see in the comments of the issue, but I'm getting no response from the libcec dev's, nor from the one who created the work-around in XBMC about mainlining it in the XBMC sources.
At least temporarily including it in your builds would get rid of the quite annoying issue for the time being.
(2014-05-31, 11:10)Forage Wrote: Would it be possible to include the following work-around patch? https://github.com/chbmuc/xbmc/commit/6e5822d

I'll include it in the next build, probably tomorrow. My only concern is that it's not Panasonic specific, and that it may have a negative effect on non-Panasonic users. Hopefully that's not the case, but if it does (or it simply doesn't have the desired effect for you) then it will be pulled.

I'm including these libcec patches because Pulse Eight seem to have dropped off the radar when it comes to maintaining libcec, which is frankly not a good sign.

@Forage please confirm if the libcec double-key fix in #0601 is working for you or not. I have seen a post on #IRC suggesting the fix made no difference so it will be dropped unless there is positive feedback. Thanks.

I'm not Forage but can confirm that the fix is working for my Panasonic E30 TV. Thanks Milhouse.
