Experimental newclock4 build uploaded: #0823b

Same as build #0823, but with newclock4 patches in place of newclock3. See here for details.

newclock4 additions since previous build #0821b:

Popcornmix , is there a way to automaticlly use dvdplayer for img/iso and OMXplayer for all other files with newclock 4 ?

Yes, that is the default beaviour.
Make sure in acceleration settings that all 3 options are enabled.
Ok but then live-tv uses dvdplayer, not OMXplayer.

How to set omxplayer for live tv ?
@Milhouse
Good evening. In the last two experimental builds (the "b" ones) the video stops for just a second while playing. Screen turns black and there is no sound. It happens randomly so if I rewind and play it again nothing happens. In two different movies it happened twice in each one (with two different builds).
I'm afraid I can't send you a log because I can't reproduce the error. Maybe it's only in my case.
Thank you and regards

Why is Live TV not working with IPTV Simple? When I start it, it's giving me a dark blank screen with no errors. Running OpenELEC Helix build: #0824

Is there anything in a debug log (wiki)? I don't use PVR so can't test IPTV Simple or anything like it.

how to start last watched TV channel automatic, after pi start?

In raspxbmc it worked, but then I moved to openelec - this function do not work. I tried to setup "foreground" and "background" function in settings - but no success.

How to set omxplayer for live tv ?

I've just has a look and with the 3 acceleration options enabled it uses omxplayer for livetv (e.g. codec omx-h264 or omx-mpeg2).
If you are not getting that can you post a debug enabled log file.
I'll get you a log after work.
But no , with tvheadend live sdtv xbmc uses dvdplayer in newclock 4 builds.
For recordings omxplayer is fine

I tried DSD multi channel audio on this build but afraid playback lots of clicks and plops.
I am comparing this latest RPI build against my stock Windows7 PC with XXBMC (13.0-ALPHA12 Git:20140210-699163e) which fully supports multi audio.

Configuration for both XBMC's is same 5.1 channels, same A/V amp etc except that windows Pc has XBMC enable setting for pass through of Dolby MultiChannel etc
Location UK; Media server Windows 7 with ArgusTV 2.3 with TBS6981 DVB-S2 x4 and DVB-T x 2:All network connections cabled on 1Gb router Raspberry Pi2 1GB x 2; RPI 3 x1; PiB+512MB x 3; TV Samsung 55" C8000; AV Denon AVR X2200W

Which file were you playing? The first sample linked from the PR is 352kHz.
We were refusing to resample above 192kHz, but I've removed that limit with latest commit and that sample seems to play.

If you were trying to play something below 192kHz then it may be another issue and a sample file would be useful.

Excellent, that fixes it for the 3 samples from the sample page, even 2.0/2.1 output! CPU during playback is quite high though - 70%-75% load on a 1GHz Pi - so this file format could be a problem unless the Pi is overclocked. But at 1GHz, they play flawlessly.

New build will be posted after the football...
