Thanks for the quick fix, it's working fine again!

Out of curiosity: which commit/change fixes this? Couldn't find any hints about that in the build details :)

so long,

When rebasing the newclock4 branch, I'll often squash commits to keep the number of patches manageable.
This commit changed in the update,
but Milhouse's scripts don't notice that change.

I'll try to add changes as "squash: fix for composite output when using dvdplayer" for one day, and then then remove it the next day. That way the changes will show up in the release notes.
I've upgraded to beta2 and beta3 and both have problem playing LiveTV (TVH server on separate machine) with subtitles stream enabled (while subtitles disabled - everything is OK). I'm using RPi with OpenElec 4.95.3 with pvr.hts. Log shows as if I'm pressing pause/resume (which I'm not) and screen stops for a second or so and continues... Here are few lines from log:

I always received a "Permission denied". For some reasons I need now to add "sec=ntlmv2" to the mount command:
Code:
mount -t cifs -o username=theuser,password=mypass,rw,sec=ntlmv2 //192.168.1.1/Movies /storage/videos
So in case there will be another user trying to mount a folder from a USB device connected to a Fritz Box (http://www.avm.de), you maybe gonna need that.

Build Highlights:
  1. New firmware
    popcornmix Wrote:I've pushed a firmware update that improves (hopefully) the omxplayer framerate synching.
    Previously we would control the render vs vsync time for exact and double framerates (e.g. 24fps on 24Hz or 30fps on 60Hz) but not for 2.5 times framerate (24fps on 60Hz).
    With the update we handle the 2.5 times case.

    It's subtle, but I think it makes 24fps on 60Hz look a bit smoother (e.g. with panning). Obviously not as good as using a true 24Hz display.
  2. New 3.17.4 kernel
Build Details:
  1. Firmware (Nov 22):
    • firmware: Avoid enabling 25MHz ethernet clock on model A+. See: link

@popcornmix, you have a PM.

Thanks for sample file. I can reproduce the error (hang in DVD menu)
If you disable MMAL video acceleration it should avoid the hang (although video will play slowly with software decode).
That at least helps to narrow down the issue to the MMAL video decoder. I'll see what I can do.
Yes, with software decode it's run very slowly. And that is good, that you can reproduce the error.
@popcornmix Have noticed that changing the GUI refresh rate only works until a reboot.
I have recently (4-5 days?) switched from DESKTOP (1080p60) to 1080p23.98. The setting is saved (verified) and in fact it still works if Kodi is restarted.
After a reboot it's back at DESKTOP. I didn't check if the guisettings.xml still had 23.98, nor I have a debug log - I can get one tomorrow, it should be pretty easy to reproduce though.

I have an EDID file (hdmi_edid_file=1) if that matters.

I run with 1080p23.98 as my default resolution (as it avoids the HDMI switching for most content). It is remembered for me on reboot.
I did find when I first tried this I left resolution on DESKTOP and changed framerate to 23.98 and that reverted on a reboot.
When I changed to 1920x1080 and 23.98 it seemed to stick.

kodi does something rather confusing with list of resolutions.
DESKTOP is the HDMI mode you launched xbmc in. It will be the preferred HDMI mode (of the TV) unless overridden by config.txt.

If we assume DESKTOP is 1920x1080, then by default kodi adds 1920x1080 to resolution list twice, and depending on which one you choose, the behaviour changes.
If you pick the DESKTOP one, then reboot with a different display that prefers 1280x720, you get the 1280x720.
If you pick the 1920x1080 one, then reboot with a different display that prefers 1280x720, you get the 1920x1080.

That's why I change the name in newclock4 builds to make it clearer what the two modes are.

It's possible that we should be reporting the list of HDMI modes differently. I'd be interested if another kodi platform produces a different list of HDMI modes than the Pi.

I suspect that where kodi saves and loads the guisettings parameters it may be mixing up the DESKTOP and 1920x1080 modes resulting in the swap you are seeing.
Obviously DESKTOP doesn't have an associated framerate (even though you are allowed to choose one), so if that ends up in guisettings, the chosen framerate will be lost.
Ah! Yeah, that worked fine. A diff between the (new) backup and current guisettings shows no differences at all.
I was leaving the resolution untouched and only changed the frame rate.

Well, it's quite confusing because changing the frame rate automatically changes the resolution from DESKTOP to 1920x1080p... so I thought that was enough.
I think adding a note to the help for the frame rate setting should be enough.

The reason I'm changing the refresh rate is more or less the same: my TV is fast enough in switching the HDMI mode that I don't even notice it, but still my content is 98% 23.976.
(Side note: I don't really like Kodi picking a multiple of the refresh rate and I'm overriding 23.976 and 25. I completely understand why it does, but that really should be configurable... maybe an advanced setting.)

Thanks for your help again...

I'd like it to behave so DESKTOP disables the framerate options and you have to switch to 1920x1080 if you want to set a different framerate.
Not sure if that's straightforward, but I'll look into it.
