OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
O.k,

I get the impression from the lack of replies that not many other people have this problem.

To be absolutely sure , I've managed to borrow another dvb-t ( usb )tuner, so I will try to rule out it being a hardware problem with the stick.

Yes, it matches my understanding. I think if you have a perfect signal with no errors, then the audio sync will be fine (whether using official openelec or milhouse build).

If you are getting visible corruption on screen (e.g. due to a poor signal from aerial), then it is possible the timestamp of an audio packet is corrupted.

I think something in the code gets upset by the bad timestamp and results in bad audio sync for some time (possibly until that timestamp is actually reached).

It appears that the milhouse build handles the bad timestamp better than official openelec.
So, the question is, do the first or second test builds behave the same as the milhouse build (and so better than official?)

I realise that as the problem relies on random errors which come and go it may be hard to be certain if build A is better than build B.
Just keep switching between the builds and report which one you are happiest with.
with the recent update the openelec logo is corrupted is this only happening to me or others.

Is it safe to assume that the interlacing sample is working properly for others or no one had a ychance due to the world cup I have watched all the games the best so far Holland v Spain

Hi Guys,

I've got a question not directly associated with test builds, but given your expertise you may know the answer. Basically I want to be able to monitor all cec traffic on my rasperry pi, regardless if it is selected as an active source. Curently when I run cec-client, all events on CEC bus are reported as long as raspi is an active source. The moment I switch to other source, nothing is being reported. I have search over interned and found a post on pulse-eight forum stating that cec-client should work as intended, so it may be that either hardware (like TV) or software, VideoCore driver to be specific, is filtering traffic. Do you know how I could find out if it is indeed VC that is doing it?

Sorry for polluting the thread.

I believe the hardware on VC only "sees" CEC traffic that is broadcast or sent to the Pi's logical address.
I don't think it can monitor CEC packets that are not meant for it.
New OpenELEC Helix build: #0615
(Supercedes previous build)

Code:
# uname -a
Linux rpi512 3.15.0 #1 PREEMPT Sun Jun 15 18:35:11 BST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

# vcgencmd version
Jun 11 2014 21:58:47

# lsb_release
OpenELEC_Helix (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140615185039-r18605-gf802a3a

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (f802a3a, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (3c557ed, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 patches
  • Includes Python regex package for evaluation purposes. Initial benchmarking indicates generally positive (and in some cases, significant) performance gains. See this post for a description of how to test effectiveness of this package with addons
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches due to conflicts with newclock3
  • Excludes the OpenELEC linux-01-RPi_support patch in favour of sourcing these and possibly more recent patches directly from kernel branch rpi-3.15.y
  • Excludes the OpenELEC xbmc-master-newclock3 patch in favour of sourcing these and possibly more recent patches directly from newclock3 branch
  • 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
  • FIQ FSM is enabled by default. See initial post for more details.
  • Includes RPi-specific libCEC commits from mk01/libcec. See build #0527 for details. Also double-key suppression.
  • Increase scan interval of PeripBusCEC from 5000 to 60000, reducing CPU loading by about 2% (1GHz Pi) every 5 seconds (even when CEC is "disabled")
  • Includes libnfs master with directory caching support
Build Highlights:

I think is only with you, try to update to today's release Wink
To me release #0615 seems faster and snappier than all previous releases.
On Navigation and loading streams.
Good job!
Still the same so it is something on my pi that is causing this. I will format the sd card and the usb drive and update to the latest 4.0.5 openelec and then update to MillhouseVM builds. Maybe there is still something from openelec v3 that is causing this. This started when I updated to Helix builds.
@denz: Have you got anything unusual in your config.txt? Try with a minimal config.txt and see if that helps - remove any hdmi or overclock related stuff. Certainly try with stock OpenELEC just to rule that out. Can't think why it should be an SD card problem unless your kernel.img file is corrupt but it looks more like a vertical or horizontal sync issue between your R-Pi and TV.

Is it only the logo that has gone haywire? What about once the xbmc splash or menu appears on screen? The OpenELEC boot logo is being shown at 1920x1080, can your TV handle this resolution?

Adding "nosplash" to cmdline.txt will stop the logo from being shown.

I'm not sure I understand, is there a missing button? Do you get the same with official OpenELEC 4.0.5?

Edit: So the "Next" button is missing which makes that dialog impossible to complete (and you can't dismiss it either, so you're stuck). I've tested this with OpenELEC 4.0.5 and it works correctly there, so maybe it's an issue introduced by PR4919... trying a build without PR4919...

OpenELEC Helix build: # 0615


button next
Yep, a build without PR4919 but with PR3717 shows the "Next" button, so there is some weird interaction between PR4919 and the OpenELEC Setup Wizard.

For now, downgrade to #0611, complete the Setup Wizard then (if you want) upgrade to #0615. I'll drop PR4919 from the next build which won't be for another day or so.

PS. @gogu, thanks for the report. I've updated PR4919 with the details.

Do/should? these include the newest PVR addons from https://github.com/opdenkamp/xbmc-pvr-addons? I was hoping to test the 1.9.8 version of NextPVR.
