  • Includes newclock3 patches

  • Includes latest libnfs master
  • Includes latest libcec master
  • Includes libcec double-key suppression.

I've uploaded an experimental build based on newclock4 patches, as detailed here and with additional clarification, here.

Download link: #801c.

This build is exactly the same as #801b, but with all the newclock3 patches replaced by newclock4 patches. Please read the aforementioned links before using.

tested #801b and #801c

#801b

- still have issue with channel as per post 789 http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1760335


#801c

using omxplayer (omx-h264)

- everything works but cannot modify aspect ratio i.e. cannot get picture to fill screen (two black bars on sides)
- mute does not work (using analogue audio tv has only a dvi input)
- channel in post 789 works fine Smile

using dvdplayer with hardware acceleration (mmal-h264)

- i get no sound. My tv has a dvi input so analogue sound only - had same behavior when tested dvdplayer in newclock 3 a while ago.
- pvr channel changes are slower than with omxplayer
- channel in post 789 works fine

Same findings.
In TV when watching a channel in frame (all channels) the picture is not aligned (shifted left)

Could you explain exactly what you are seeing?
Are you saying the gui is fast?
Are you talking about when playing video or generally?

In English? ^^

Quote:Are you saying the gui is fast?
Yes, fast and smooth.

Quote:Are you talking about when playing video or generally?
Edit:
In both cases, especially in the second.
@slack3r: You'll be glad to know the IP address dialog problem will be fixed in the next build.

The start-of-month XBMC merge window has opened and there has been a flood of new commits already so far today. I'll try and publish one new newclock3-based build a day (late evening) which should help narrow down the new commit in the event of any breakage.

Is this fix included in the experimental #801c build?

Thanks again.
No, only #0802 onwards. When I upload another experimental build based on newclock4 patches (maybe tomorrow) it will be included there.

I assume this is live TV with omxplayer acceleration enabled? I've pushed a fix for this (should be in next build).
If you disable omxplayer acceleration you shouldn't have this bug.

Yes indeed it is enabled
Thanks

Great could you also look at analogue audio as my tv only has dvi. Newclock 4 fixes some pvr channels which do not start with newclock 3 so it would be great if i could use it.
