Thanks for quick testing. This fix will be in next official firmware update (maybe tonight), and should be in milhouse builds after that.

No, thank YOU for all your great work!

Just pushed a firmware update with this fix, so should be in next build.
Hello,

Since some time (not long) I've noticed that recently added TV Shows are not updating. There are some troubles with database update too. Sometimes I have to go to Videos -> Files and perform "Search for new content" on a particular folder to find new episodes.
@darzur: It's probably generic, and I'm pretty sure there's at least one other similar thread. You need to post a debug log, but probably best to do so in one of the existing threads.

Edit: You might want to check these threads:

There's a known problem with multi-part episode matching when the filename includes the video resolution - see PR5270 which attempts to address the issue, but isn't entirely successful. Best solution right now is to clean up your filenames, either by changing the names of your episode files or using a suitable regex in advancedsettings.xml.

  • Includes newclock3 patches
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches due to conflicts with newclock3

Build Highlights:
  1. newclock3-based build.

Experimental newclock4 build uploaded: #0830b

Same as build #0830, but with newclock4 patches in place of newclock3. See here for details.

No newclock4 additions since previous build #0829c.

@popcornmix did this build also ignore the gpu mem? I have a dvd menu and with the new start.elf , the menu get very slowely.
I thought i have read it before but can't find it anymore. On Helix my keyboard disappeard. Going back to Gotham and it works. Upgrade to Helix and again it is gone. Problem is that i can't add new sources or change names. Any solution?

Which skin are you using? Test with stock Confluence, most other skins are likely to have compatibility issues. What is your keyboard/language setting?

I noticed that on aeon nox 5 because it must be compatible with Helix ( at least on my pc and android device) it has worked before, but i wil test it on confluence. Thanks for fast replay

gpu_mem should work normally for official firmware releases - just custom builds (e.g. downloaded from dropbox) they won't.

Are you saying that the latest build if you use an older start.elf that the menus are not slow?

When menu is slow press 'o' (codec info) and report if it says "mmal-mpeg2" or "ff-mpeg2" as the video codec.
Ok, i have tested it, with another start.elf it is also slow. With version from #0820 it's run very clean and with the new one it is slow.
The codec is mmal-mpeg2. And im using the newclock4 version.
Since last 10 Milhouse-Builds (not the newclock4) i have big problems with async video/audio watching live-tv over VNSI/VDR-Addon.
Most of the time when i start a channel i see some garbage output and bad frames and from there its async.
Anyone else has that problems?
When i use timeshift and record that channel everything is ok and sync.

Can you identify the exact build that introduced the problem?
Hi,

i recently bought a Sony LCD-TV. Last time i tried to watch a DVD and i was unable
to view it with DVDPlayer and Audio-Passthrough.
I thought it was the same problem described in some earlier posts.
But the last Milhouse release does not help.
Anytime i want to view a DVD or a Video which contains AC3 Audio i only hear crackling.
DVDPlayer always reports Dolby-Digital and 2.0.
I dont have this problem when using OMXPlayer which reports Dolby-Digital 5.1.

Does anybody else have the same issue?
Are there any hints that iam not aware of?
I have done my tests with an empty .xbmc folder and with build #820, #830 and #830b.

Thanks.
