Analogue audio never worked for me with dvdplayer.. will re-install milhouse 801c build tomorrow morning and collect full logs.

This is broken by the fast channel switch patch. Looks like FernetMenta has a fix for this:
https://github.com/popcornmix/xbmc/commi...1673205d51

which should fix newclock3 in next build. I've also added fast channel switch (and this fix) to newclock4.

Experimental newclock4 build uploaded: #0803b

Same as build #0803, but with newclock4 patches in place of newclock3. See here for details.

newclock4 additions since previous build:
  • [omxrenderer] Use ReleaseBuffer to free images

  • [omx] Report decoded image name
  • [players] Remove omxplayer as separately selectable player
  • logging: Add microsecond timer to log messages
  • [rbp/settings] Allow av sync type to be enabled
  • [VideoReferenceClock] Hacky scheme to count vsyncs for clock sync
  • [omxcodec] Don't use unknown for first timestamp - can cause blank screen with avi files
  • [omxcodec] Release buffers on re-configure
  • [omxrender] Use callback to player for bypass mode
  • [players] Plumb in mute
  • ffmpeg demuxer: faster channel change for PVR addons without internal demuxing
  • fast channel switch, make sure extradata is decoded
  • ffmpeg demuxer: allow a stream change if pat/pmt was not seen on open

Tested it with newclock3 and 4 - both fine now thanks

with latest 803b build omx player is fine (including sound), but no gui sounds and no sound in dvdplayer. (don't have gui sounds on 803 build newclock3 either)

For me output to spidev is still not available. I can see it in /dev/ and load the modules (modeprobe spi_bcm2708 modprobe spidev) but nothing is happening with Hyperion.

What was the last build with gui sounds? Does stable Openelec 4.0.7 have working gui sounds?
Have you tried a clean install? A debug log file may have some clues.
I have to say the latest #803b build is working well on my RPI model b 512mb.

I use ArgusTV as a PVR backend and found this latest release very responsive for channel switching both on DVB-S2 and DVB-t1.

Also working well is default playback of DVD iso images... so far I use above on analogue audio which works fine. I will be testing with HDMI later today.

With any reports on newclock4 it would be useful if you report if you have "omxplayer" acceleration turned on or off. Ideally test with both.
I noticed a higher CPU usage when watching a h264 stream and disabled omxplayer (so using the new newclock4 pipeline). But that's probably because the video info overlay is rendering with 30fps (my default screen refresh rate) instead of 24. Didn't have a console nearby so that I could have checked the real difference via TOP.

@gui sounds via analogue
I think I had to explicitly select the analouge audio sink and not use HDMI + dual audio. But as my skin doesn't have GUI sounds I could remember wrong. Can test again tonight.

omxplayer enabled will always be lower cpu than disabled. Omxplayer effectively runs the scheduling/rendering/audio engine/sink code on the GPU rather than the arm. That will always be true.
omxplayer rendering is not coupled to gui rendering, so you can have OSD updating at ~10fps and video updating at 30fps (or even 60 for deinterlaced).
Currently dvdplayer is coupled, which means cpu is higher due to OSD being forced to render at video framerate.
Logicially this doesn't have to occur (due to OMXRenderer), but needs some work to decouple the video rendering from OSD rendering.
thanks for info. I thought that with your dvdplayer "refactoring" the drawbacks of dvdplayer in newclock3 would have been gone already. Newclock4 is already working nice though (at least form my tests so far)

Default settings used;

DVD Player: dvdplayer
Video Player: omxplayer
Audio Player: paplayer

"omxplayer" acceleration turned on

Remember these settings are ignored.

"omxplayer" acceleration enabled => omxplayer
"omxplayer" acceleration disabled => dvdplayer

There may be a future option "auto" which picks the more appropriate player based on audio output device, codecs used, resolution/bitrate etc.
