OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 15.0) Part 1
Thanks - that's really useful.

@slack3r - boot in text mode, remount /flash so it is writable (mount -o remount,rw /flash), then write the output of dmesg, lsmod, "lsusb -v" etc. into /flash. Then you can copy them off onto your PC.

Hi Milhouse, thank you.

The issue seems gone. What could it be: overclock too high?

Code:
OpenELEC:~ # vcgencmd get_config int
arm_freq=950
core_freq=500
over_voltage=6
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
program_serial_random=1
config_hdmi_boost=4
init_emmc_clock=0x1dcd6500
emmc_pll_core=1
hdmi_ignore_cec_init=1
hdmi_force_cec_address=65535
framebuffer_ignore_alpha=1
framebuffer_swap=1
disable_splash=1
force_turbo=1
temp_limit=65
force_pwm_open=1
pause_burst_frames=1

Nice, many thanks.
As I understand it, how fast you can overclock the ARM depends on the characteristics of the chip on your board and the code that you run; some sequences of instructions, with certain cache alignments, etc. will trigger a timing violation where others wouldn't. So it is possible that the upgrade has found the limits of your Pi.

That sounds right.

Thanks for sharing.

Texture Cache Maintenance Utility: Preload your texture cache for optimal UI performance. Remotely manage media libraries. Purge unused artwork to free up space. Find missing media. Configurable QA check to highlight metadata issues. Aid in diagnosis of library and cache related problems.
I'm new to the RPi world and need help on how to install the latest test build. I have a lot of interest in the CC that Kodi 15 brings and want to be a part of helping test it. If someone could point me to a guide to get going from a blank SD card on windows that would help me a lot!
There are several guides for installing OpenELEC. If you've got a Linux computer just untar the test build and run create_sdcard, then remove the SD card from the Linux PC and insert in your Pi. If you don't have a Linux PC, use an OpenELEC for RPi disk image - available from the OpenELEC site, latest version 5.0.0 - then update to one of the test builds by copying the test build tar file into the Update folder of your Pi using Windows Explorer, then reboot the Pi.

I usually do this using just RPi itself, since the kodi image is relatively small so it's a quick operation. You just need a SD card reader. Here's one I prepared earlier today Smile

/dev/sdb is the target micro SD card, seen here.

(reverse-i-search)`dd': sudo dd if=/media/IBOO/RPiImages/2014-12-24-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/sda bs=4M

Next, write the v5 kodi image to the card:

[email protected] /media/IBOO/downloads $ sudo dd if=OpenELEC-RPi.arm-5.0.0.img of=/dev/sdb bs=4M
73+0 records in
73+0 records out
306184192 bytes (306 MB) copied, 34.7344 s, 8.8 MB/s
[email protected] /media/IBOO/downloads $

As you can see, that took < a minute.

Next, replace my Raspbian SD card with the v5 Kodi & reboot. Kodi will expand that written image to the full size of the card.

Reboot with the Raspbian, or whatever OS you have, plug the card reader in again with the now expanded Kodi, & find the

.update

folder, then copy the relevant build obtained from this thread into that folder.

I got a new wired network drop, this time with build #0116

OK, it may be overclock but I would like to investigate.

Some points:

1 - Openelc add-on shows wired connection up and running. System info tab do the same, but Dns is wrong - the address showed is 127.0.0.1, while ip address is right.

2 - adding 'textmode' in cmdline.txt is not useful: I'm not able to get console after kodi.service was started.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
No Audio with Live TV and Spanish Mainland DVB-T for channels La 1 HD & tdp HD. (Build #0116, not tested on previous builds)

Video OK but No Audio when playing channels on a remote Pi with the TVheadend frontend connected to another Pi running the TVheadend backend. Video/Audio on other HD and SD channels are OK.

Note: That on Pi thats running TVheadend backend and frontened on a latest stable version of Openenlec 5.0 Video and Audio is fine for the same served La 1 HD and tdp HD channels.

Switched on debug before switching between La 1 HD and other HD channels, logfile @ http://sprunge.us/aZXX

Note: I did not test tdp HD when the debug was switched (La 1 HD and tdp HD are on same DVB-T multiplex, other HD channels on different multiplex i.e. in case the audio output is served slightly differently etc)

I guess it's down to this:

15:03:22 429.903839 T:2830148672   DEBUG: AddOnLog: Tvheadend HTSP Client: pvr.hts - Dropped packet with unknown stream index 1
Identifying the last build that worked may be useful.
Feels like a tvheadend bug (or incompatible server/client versions).
Hello ( sorry if this is multiple post)


I am in the uk and have recently bought this stick - August t210 dub-t2 usb tuner
Looking in the openelec compatibility wiki, I assumed that it would work OOB for the latest openelec builds.
Sadly, it is not even recognized!
I have tried the latest dev builds and the stick is recognised, but VDR cannot find any HD channels.
TVheadend, on the other hand, finds the HD channels fine?
Unfortunately, the channels changing is so slow in these builds, it makes it difficult to use

Maybe someone can help?

I can try to provide dmesg for the official and dev builds if that would help?

ManyThanks
Apologies popcornmix/all

After posting my question above on no HD Audio, I had sudden thought about the openelec audio settings on the remote pi. Checked and inadvertenly pre-set to 7.1 from when I had the Pi previously connected to an amp with 7.1 capabilites. I now have set to 2.0 and audio plays fine.

@pootler: If there's an upstream VDR bug (or no support for your hardware) you should report it on the OpenELEC forum. If a fix is forthcoming I'll include it my build.
