OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
Hi. As a new poster, first may I just say thank you for all the work you all put in, so the rest of us can enjoy the end result.
So, to business.
I'm having a great deal of trouble trying to get 1015 and Tvheadend(v3.9.1847) to play nicely together. The majority of the time the system gets "stuck" on load up, and then eventually invokes OOM, and kicks out Tvheadend. Which then restarts, and so the cycle continues until I intervene by using systemctl stop (if I get the chance) or by using kill -9, or in the worse circumstance, having to poweroff the RPi .
So far I have only managed to get them to run together once, but I closed my system down overnight, and I was back to the same problem in the morning.
Having a dig around on the Tvheadend site, I noticed that version 3.9.1847 "failed" to build. Now I'm not sure what that means, and how that would affect the compilation of Tvheadend. Does whomever created 1847 for Openelec realise this? and is it this that's causing my problems?
As an aside, I have been trying to get recent versions of Tvheadend (my own compilations) to work with Helix. None of them have as yet worked perfectly - I'm having trouble with video play back - but none of them have caused OOM to kick in.
As yet, I have not tried to use 1016 / 17, but will be giving them a go.

My Pi is a model 512B, and everything is set to default.

I can provide a dmesg file if required, but thought I'd better mention 1847 "failing" on the Tvheadend site first.
There's a tvheadend support thread on the OpenELEC forum that you might want to take a look at. I've no idea if there's a general tvheadend problem, it appears to be working well for least one person with a Helix build.

Problems with builds other than my own should be discussed in a separate/dedicated thread, to ensure any discussion remains on-topic. By all means test one of my builds with tvheadend and let us know how you get on.

Okay, will do. Was just wondering if anyone else was having a similar experiece.

I've just updated my RPI (512MB) to the latest version (17/10) from Newclock3 version and found a strange behaviour related to subtitles.
When downloading a new subtitle (or updating a new one) there is a strange white wash all over the screen (although the frame can be seen behind), when the movie is back from pause the white disappears but the active subtitle is no where the one I downloaded (to be honest I don't know from where it took it).
It didn't happen on newclock3 and doesn't happen on the latest android alpha.
Using standard and default setup. Default skin. All acceleration on. It happens when I disable OMXPlayer or the other one.
See below log.

Is this an RPI related? Any idea?
Thanks for your help
HI guys

With recent builds support for my hifiberry digi has been flaky - last build were it works is #1006.

Running dmesg on more recent builds I get a bunch of failed to get supply/supplies messages and '-517' as error code from the modules which the digi needs. There are - as far as I can tell - no differences in output from lsmod on the different builds.

I can reliably get the digi to work again by downgrading to #1006. Has anybody else come across this problem?

best regards
@slomovizion - how is build #1015, this temporarily dropped the Wolfson support added in build #1007 which is responsible for the -517 messages.

I've done some investigation. There were a couple of changes in the flush and accurate flags used when seeking, between newclock3 and newclock4, and by matching the newclock3 behaviour, my test case works better. You can try it in next test build.

Not seen it myself or heard of any similar report. Can't see anything obvious in log.
Might be worth testing if it occurs with default settings/add-ons. Rename .xbmc to .xbmc_back and reboot.
All settings should be default and add-ons disabled. Try and do the minimum number of steps to reproduce this.
If it still fails then let me know what steps are needed to reproduce this.

Will try and report
BTW, when downloading a subtitle outside xbmc all is fine

Hi Milhouse

Unfortunately build #1015 doesn’t work for me. Output from dmesg and lsmod is the same as the builds where wolfson support is included:

dmesg: http://sprunge.us/jQNC
lsmod: http://sprunge.us/TgHA

Output from dmesg and lsmod output from build #1006 (in case there are some clues that I’ve missed)

dmesg: http://sprunge.us/NQBG
lsmod: http://sprunge.us/DDPK


best regards

Can you explain exactly what the problem is? You say it's not "reliable" - does this mean it's working some of the time? What is the output of "aplay -l"? Is the Hifiberry visible to XBMC, or not? If it is, how is it not reliable?

Just an idea, could you boot a #1006 system with the start.elf firmware from #1007 and see if it has any effect:

1. Copy #1007 tar to Update folder, boot into #1007
2. cp /flash/start.elf /storage
3. Copy #1006 tar to Update folder, boot into #1006
4. mount -o remount,rw /flash
5. cp /storage/start.elf /flash
6. mount -o remount,ro /flash
7. reboot
8. Confirm if Hifiberry hardware becomes "unreliable", or not.

The only other thing I can do is throw up a build with the resample commits reverted (these were the only other significant changes in #1007, other than firmware and Wolfson), and for you to test if that has any effect but if the device is not visible to XBMC then there wouldn't be any point in testing such a change. (not really possible - way too many changes)

Seeking/skip in films are fine now with omxplayer/HW activated
Thanks!

I meant, no scrambled picture when fast forward in films.
Hello since many version, i have a problem with my DVD. The Problem is, that the menu hang.
Here is my log and i hope you find an error.
