OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 15.0) Part 1
#31
(2014-12-20, 13:44)thent Wrote: If kodi is left at standby while showing a file listing it keeps continuously scrolling long file names from left to right, which is stressing the CPU a lot. Happened to me that the CPU temp reached almost 70°C without doing anything but just scrolling and scrolling...
Is there any way to disable scrolling at all, or even better: just keep it scrolling for let's say half a minute or overall xx times and than stop it?
This would save my Pi's lifetime a lot. ;-)
regards,
Thomas

What screensaver are you using? auto-scrolling will be disabled when the Black or Dim screensaver activates. So if you haven't enabled a screensaver, enable either Black or Dim.

And 70C is well within range for a Pi. Smile

Leaving Kofi on the "right" screen before turning off the tv is a workaround, not a solution, isn't it? There should not be a wrong way to turn off your tv.

Was away a few days and now updated from #1214 to #1219. Lightberry/hyperion still not working without "device_tree=" in config.txt. Did I miss something?

What's in your config.txt?

So adding "device_tree_overlay=overlays/enable-spi-overlay.dtb" to config.txt does not work?

#37
That ought to still work, but there is also a new way: add "device_tree_param=spi=on" instead.

If neither of those work, please post the output of 'vcdbg log msg'.
#38
Thanks. I tried "device_tree_param=spi=on" first and it worked. I thought that there won't be needed any manual changes to config.txt now.
Not sure what improvements device tree support brings, but in terms of usablility this feels like a step backwards to me.
#39
I'm sorry, but that is never going to be the case, for the reason that the Pi can't know what its pins are being used for. Sometimes you want the pins to be used for one of the built-in interfaces, and sometimes you need them for GPIO. As a result there has to be a way to give it that information. That mechanism used to be a combination of kernel CONFIG symbols and module blacklisting, and now it is device tree, which I think is an improvement because the changes can all be done through config.txt.

The issue is most people don't use spi/i2c/i2s/lirc but the modules were all enabled by default and they conflict (e.g. you can't use an i2s audio card without blacklisting lirc_rpi).
So we needed a scheme where you can opt in to these.

The longer term goal is to use the "HAT detection" pin, so external cards can identify themselves and the appropriate device tree overlay will be selected automatically.
The config.txt mechanism allows cards that don't support that to still be used.

As soon as there are GUI settings for all those overlays, I totally agree. Smile

Seems my response was too fast. Missed the post from popcornmix.

A good point. Leopold has an OpenELEC add-on for configuring config.txt settings.
I believe karnage is working on an updated raspbmc settings add-on.

I'll get a list of useful setting from Phil, and suggest Leopold and karnage add support.
#43
This addon would be a perfect place. Personally I don't have problems in editing config.txt with nano, but I'm sure lots of people will be happy if they get a way to enable overlays via GUI.

#45
Hi Millhouse,

After update from #1219 to #1220 lircd stopped working. Tried "irw" from SSH but there wasn't any response too. I think it's related with "No longer load lirc_rpi module by default" but don't know how to configure it. Can you give me any directions?
