OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
(2014-08-16, 08:46)Milhouse Wrote: Can you provide an example of how to reproduce this problem? Test it with the stock Confluence skin, any other skin may require changes.

I'm using Confluence only. It's just enough to open virtual keyboard and try to input some text. I can do it using cursors and virtual keys but not 0-9 keys from my remote. Pressing 0-9 have no efect at all.

Quote:Also, what language and keyboard layout are you using? Check the new "Character set" and "Keyboard layouts" options in Settings -> Appearance -> International - you might need to adjust them. Note: You'll need to set the Settings Level to Standard (or above) to see the Character set and Keyboard layout fields.

Normally I'm using Language=Polish, Character set=Central European (ISO), Keyboard layout=ABC but for testing purposes switched it to Language=English, Character set=Default, Keyboard layout=QWERTY. Unfortunately it didn't helped at all. Can you share your remote.xml? In GLOBAL section I have "JumpSMSx" for numeric buttons and in VIRTUALKEYBOARD section it's "NumberX" respectively. It always worked but maybe lately something changed.

Quote:The virtual keyboard (Language=English, Character set=Default, Keyboard layout=QWERTY) is working correctly for me, for example when using (Global) Search. Jumping through the Movies library using the 2-9 keys (2=abc, 3=def, 4=ghi etc.) is also working as it should.

Jumping through various lists (like Movies for example) is working for me too. I only can't write in virtual keyboard window.

Thanks in advance

It seems #714b broke it, as #714 and earlier work and later builds don't (edit: up to #815). I did not try every build before and after, just enough to narrow it down. I did check #718 in case it was something to do with the warnings regarding #714b, but airplay didn't work there either.

The log spits out:
ERROR: Action - thread AirPlayServer, Unhandled exception caught in thread process, aborting. auto delete: 0

This is with the latest ios version (7.1.2), streaming video from Safari.

edit: this seems to be the specific commit affecting airplayserver
[stdstring] get rid of CStdString in network/
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commit/6c3a...97f1430744

Interesting. I'd noticed some airplay streams that I thought used to work didn't currently work (the visualisation shows, but no video).
So I've had a closer look and tried reverting the commit you mentioned, and sure enough the streams now play with video.

I've added the revert to newclock3/newclock4 trees, so I'll be interested if the next build works better for you.

This is my remote.xml. I've been using it for years... Smile

I've tweaked it to work with one of these:

The mouse pad doesn't work, nor does the right and left mouse buttons or "e" button (internet - top row, left of power button) as they don't generate valid key codes. Other than that, all other buttons work.Record is mapped to context menu.

There are a number of warnings about buffer timeouts... you're trying to cache to SD, which may not be helping. Is your Pi connected over WiFi or wired?

You've got a lot of junk in your advancedsettings.xml, I'd suggest pairing that down to what you require and test again:
Code:
<advancedsettings>
  <network>
    <disableipv6>true</disableipv6>
  </network>

  <fanartheight>540</fanartheight>
  <imageres>256</imageres>

I've tried today the airplay feature, but can't get it to work.
The Airplay is checked in the xbmc settings, but my laptop with OSX 10.9.4 can't find anything.
I've also tried the Airfoil software (some people says it helps) but it also doesn't detect xbmc.
@Milhouse
My Pi is wired, but changing to your advancedsettings.xml did the trick.
Thanks so much Milhouse :-)

Airplay video streaming works again in #0816. Thanks for looking into it (and Milhouse, as well)

It's strange. It's identical as mine in VirtualKeyboard and Global sections (at least numeric keys are), but mine is not working in virtual keyboard window.

Screenshot(s) might help, as would precise steps to reproduce the problem because it seems to be working for me, but maybe we're testing different parts of the UI (are you in a PVR window, or Settings, or Sources, or Huh).

As an example: System -> Settings -> Services -> General -> Device name, does the vkb work here? What do you see (screenshot - use "texturecache.py screenshot" to capture if you have no keyboard attached). Assuming the vkb appears, are you saying all remote input is ignored - what's in your debug log while you are mashing the remote buttons?

Also try renaming your .xbmc folder and temporarily testing with fresh settings to rule out any sort of corruption or screwed up setting.

Any thoughts on the issue above? I upgraded to built #0816 and still face this issue. Feels like the menu items are disco dancing ;-)

Not seeing this myself. When do the items move - while you're in the main menu, when you return to the main menu or after restarting Kodi?

I assume though that this is with stock Confluence? If it's Amber (or any other third-party skin), you'll need to contact the skin author as it's most likely the skin isn't yet fully Helix compatible.

Unfortunately, this is happening with Confluence (and also with Amber).

Somewhat hard to reproduce. I need to play around a bit more. It may just happen for the first hour after updating to a new built. Or for the first hour or so after rebooting.

It is a bit random, but definitely something that happens with Helix builts and did never happen with Gotham. No idea how to best trouble-shoot. I could shoot a video, but even this only "proves" that I am saying the truth and not bringing us closer to a solution?

Noticed an issue with mp3 playback.
Need to test further as in not sure if it's newclock4 related or PR related yet.
Currently on 813b newclock 4.
Select a single song for playback.
Upon the song finishing the xbmc process restarts instead of returning to menu.
Will try to narrow it down as I haven't tried any builds since Gotham yet.
