OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
sure, will try Android and report back. I thought it might just be a rounding thingy from some OMX related processing.

edit: confirmed to be an GL ES thingy. At first I tried a radio station from the "radio.de" addon which looked fine, but after that I played a MP3 from my library and streamed a song from googleMusic and for both the waveform has gone completely insane. What I didn't check if it's related to replay gain adjustments which default to album level 89db.
a quick question, are helix builds any better than gotham ones in terms of GUI and general performance (speed and responsiveness) ?
New OpenELEC Helix build: #0805

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.

Apologies but i only had time to test now. Actually i have audio with dvdplayer and gui sounds they are just much much lower than omx player that is why i thought there was now sound. Is there a way to may sound levels equal across?

I'm testing, thank you.

P.s.
There is no boot splash image: it's normal?
Hello,

sorry for my stupid offtopic short question.
Did you do touchscreen driver in this testbuilds?

I play with my mind to buy a touchscreen. :-)

They sound the same volume to me.
Make sure volume is set to maximum, amplification (through OSD/audio page) is set to 0 and you have no advancedsettings relating to audio gain).

Not normal, but yes it is broken in the #0805/#0805b builds - most likely the plymouth-lite change (and possibly others) have broken the OpenELEC splash, these commits have already been reverted and the splash will be working again in the next build.

No, there is no touchscreen driver in this build unless it is already supported upstream in OpenELEC - ask the OpenELEC developers if you want a specific driver added.

Noticing an issue with the most recent builds (since the video db was upgraded to 89 I believe). After watching a tv show I'll general delete it from my server and then clean the library. Well the episode is being cleared from the library but the tv show is not. Don't know if it's related to these test builds or something else. To ensure there wasn't anything wrong with the db it self I did drop 89 rebooted and the issue remains.

I just tried this with #0806 (v89 db) and it seems to work as expected - when the last episode for a tvshow is deleted from the filesystem, the subsequent library clean removes the episode (as expected) and then also the tvshow:
Code:
$ ./texturecache.py vclean
Cleaning library...
Cleaning Library: episodeid 12177
Cleaning Library: tvshowid    223

I was in the tvshow library when the clean completed and the just deleted tvshow was still listed, however exiting from the tvshow library and then re-entering listed the tvshows correctly without the recently deleted tvshow. Querying the media library with texturecache.py also confirmed the tvshow had been removed.

Interesting...thanks for trying it out..I'll have to try it again tomorrow. I did downgrade to #0804 and things went back to normal for me but I'll give it another go tomorrow. Thanks
@popcornmix / Milhouse
On latest build of newclock4 when fast forwarding a movie (any kind) the audio and video become not synced and you've to stop and resume the movie to sync them back.
this doesnt happen on newclock3 latest build.
In both I'm using OMX with HW acc. enabled.
I think (don't recall) that with OMX HW acc. disabled it was OK on newclock4

I can post a log if needed latest this afternoon when back
