The lirc issue turned out to be straightforward - the driver searches for bcm2708_gpio by name, when in the DT case pinctrl-bcm2835 would work just as well. I've prepared a patch, and if the wind is in the right direction it could make #0107.
Hmm - I've had a report that although the patched lirc driver now registers correctly, it still doesn't actually function.
@popcornmix frame rate issue with AVIs seems fixed with latest firmware - thanks!

Great. Let me know if you see any regressions.
There are a number of ways that B frames get hacked into avi files (e.g. inserting a P and B frames into a single frame then having a separate "null" frame).
We were counting this case twice (hence double the framerate) which was fixed, but there could now be other files that will under-report the framerate.
I do have quite a list of various types of dodgy timestamp test files (mostly are packed/unpacked AVI with B frames) and they all seemed fine after the change.
@PhilE,

I'll test it as soon as #107 will be available for download.
I'm not actually sure there will be an #0107 build tonight, there's just way too much breakage following the CStdString removal commit. Sad

A lot of the other PRs I've been adding to the builds are also broken and in need of rebasing. I'll be able to resume builds once newclock4 is rebased, and will re-include the PRs as and when they are rebased.

Yes, that was a pain. So many conflicts....
But I've rebased and pushed and it seems functional (although a lot of code changed, so there may be issues from the CStdString removal).
Many thanks (as usual!)

newclock4 is applying cleanly, although the following PRs will be culled (shame about 5747, I like that one!)

PR5747 [database] - add setting for hiding watched movies/episodes in recently added lists
PR5430 [URIUtils] Fix IsSmb, IsFTP, IsAfp, IsDAV and IsNfs.

#0107 is building now...

Ah well,

Unfortunately no-one was able to help me with the Hauppauge remote that no longers works with OPENELEC from kernel 3.17.
So- bought a new remote and was interested to see how the new builds were doing.

Tried the latest official build - works well, and seems pretty fast.
Only problem, once again the good old a/v sync problem in live TV is back!

After watching several channels, the sync begins to go and can get quite pronounced.

Tried the latest Dev build- not sure about the sync because the channel delay when switching channels is really , really long!.
In fact the official build seems much snappier everywhere?

Anybody else seeing this?

Thanks

pootler
Anything abnormal in your logs while changing channels? Or about it loosing sync.
