OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
(2014-08-19, 00:14)xeeee Wrote: OK, tested

4.0.7 works fine
4.1.4 is broken

I was using a mid july build, so I don't really know the last working build.
I'm going to test other build.

Thanks. It would help if you can identify the build where the break occurs, although this will need to be addressed upstream by OpenELEC if it's in 4.1.4 (which is due for release any day now).

It would be good to get some feedback on the new SD card driver introduced in build #0815, if only to confirm that some of you have enabled it (it's not enabled by default) and have experienced no problems. See build #0815 for details.

Just a quick query. Is there likely to be any gain by those of us using a USB /storage or is this going to be useful for those running all from sdcard

Humm... I was testing the older builds, when the build 18733 from 14 July 2014 messed the SD card.
I had to format the SD card, installed the 4.0.7, update to #0817b and now it's working fine.

I've also tested again the 4.1.4 and it's fine. Confused

I'm using it and there is no problem with 'SanDisk Ultra microSDHC UHS-I' sdcard.

Thanks for reporting.

Thanks for reporting.

I'm also using it with a Noobs 8GB and no problems.
O.k - now for more comments about 'live tv' Smile

First popcornmix, I am sorry I haven.t got back to you regarding audio/video sync on live tv.
At the moment it seems o.k

However, I would appreciate any feedback from other live tv people, because at the moment, it seems to be going backward a bit.
On the newer helix builds ( newclock3/4) the channel change is a lot slower than before.
I can live with that though - but - The dreaded 'blank screen' seems to have reared its ugly head again?
You know - the one where , after calling up a blank screen channel, if you press stop on the channel , you get what looks like a single frame of the video?
It doesn't do it on all channels just some.
I rolled back to an early official build and it works fine.
I use the latest VDR.
This is consistently repeatable on certain channels - would a log of a ''non-working'' channel change and a log of a ''working' channel change be at all helpful?

Many thanks for the great work

Keith

Using with a Samsung uhs-I micro SD and all seems well. Can't really see any difference but I only have system on the card.

Possibly, but it depends what is in there. Certainly a log might indicate the problem (whereas no log will not indicate the problem).
If you can catch any bad behaviour from a recorded file that you can get to me, then there's a much better chance of a fix.

It's possible the next newclock4 build could help due to this.
The new SD Card driver will be made the default in tonights builds, you'll still have the option to disable in cmdline.txt.

Hello guys..just happened to past by these forum...any benefits of these openelec builds...any difference on the original one..as im running openelec on my rpi now..Huhis this just for test builds ?? Thanks.
Not sure what you are referring to as "the original one" but these are Helix builds, not Gotham, and contain several improvements such as a more recent ffmpeg, plus (in theory) better database performance during scrapes and updates. Also on the newclock4 builds there is no longer a distinction between omxplayer and dvdplayer, so more media should play correctly without you having to choose the appropriate player. A summarised changelog is in the first post (against each release), drill down into the release posts for full details.

  • [omxplayer] Rework trickplay to reduce changes to dvdplayer

Regarding Experimental newclock4 build : #0819b (maybe also #0817b)

Cannot play iso or img movies, but plays mkv's and avi's. When a iso/img movie is stated the cpu usage is 100% and stays there. The movie does not start, but i am able to navigate in XBMC and reboot the pi.

EDIT: Same problem with VIDEO_TS

The mpg2 key in in /flash/config.txt is correct.

I do not have this problem with build #0815b

I will upload a debug log if needed.
