OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 3 (Kodi 14.0)
I should have written it is Sony Bravia 2012 Model

This is a pain it may work for three days straight then the next day it won't and so on.

Might be worth trying this:

I get stuttering too, if I enable the subtitles. Do you need a full-debug log from me or do you have enough info about this?

Build: #1091 playing MKVs
no obvious stuttering with subtitles disabled
haven't tried renaming .kodi
I "think" it didn't occur on the ~#0929 build

I guess there's enough info now that it's reproducible, and the build when the problem starts has been identified.

What build did the problem start with? It seems inconclusive (unless I've missed a post)

Yes, I get - or I do? English uhm... it's not for me ^^.

Edit:

Oh OK, I thought it had been decided it was #1005, but I missed the edit, so agreed - still no idea when the problem started. Sad

Did you remove the Wolfson driver because it breaks Hifiberry? Do you plan on reintroducing it? Thanks!

Not specifically, it was removed because nobody had managed to get it to work successfully with Wolfson hardware. However removing the non-functional Wolfson code also meant there was one less possible reason for Hifiberry not working. Quite why Hifiberry still doesn't work is not known.

Yes, if it can be shown to work (and without causing any other issues).

I'm starting to wonder why we bother including Hifiberry drivers in the 3.17.y kernel as they too are no longer functional.

Thanks for your quick answer. It's a shame we cannot use Wolfson or Hifiberry correctly, as the manufacturer don't seem to care about their users...

I have tried your #1019 build (last with Wolfson support), but could not get audio to work. Could I help you with this, as you don't seem to have a Wolfson card?

I think it's mostly a case of waiting for the Wolfson driver/PR to mature - keep an eye on PR:705 for updates.

I had quick look at this PR (and the earlier one referenced therein) - there is quite a discussion of issues caused by / introduced simultaneously with the addition of wolfson support. The very notable thing is, that the issues are exactly the same as those that keep the hifiberry from working. To me it seems that something else has been changed in the kernel at about the time when wolfson support was being tested which has FUBAR'ed support of these cards for the moment.

Are you using the builds posted in this thread?

Ok, I've found a "range":
build #0908 works fine, #0929 does stuttering.
I am running the latest builds just in case to see has it been fixed I have installed now build #1024 and have entered the below information from the link provided by popcornmix

Hopefully this will fix it as now that pi is not using wireless it is so much quicker.

Run: sudo tvservice -d edid.dat (after booting with TV/receiver powered on first)
copy the edid.dat to the FAT partition (/boot on raspbmc and /flash on openelec)
and add to config.txt: hdmi_edid_file=1 and hdmi_force_hotplug=1

gentle reminder. Thanks.
