The wtv index speed up patch isn't in the last build, will be in the next.

Hi,

Up till now Kodi 15 test builds have been running really smooth without any issues.

However in #0117 CPU gets stuck at 100% randomly, after some time it goes back to normal usage 12-30% when idle.
Not sure if this is a real problem but I made a log so you could have a look if there's something that misbehaves in my setup.

LOG

(Installation info: Clean install of OE 5.0.0 final and then test build #0109 and up to #0117)

Thanks for all hard work you guys put in to this!

/Patric
Impossible to determine the CPU loading from the debug log - when was it at 100%, when was it not?

Perhaps combine it with the output of "bcmstat.sh -xcd10" which would give timings for when CPU load is high or low and can be cross referenced with the debug log (bcmstat.sh is included in my test builds). Scrape the console output and put it on pastebin.

What dvb adapters are supported in these builds? I am particularly interested in geniatech t230 aka August t210 v2
Same as in stock builds.

Good idea!

Maybe this is the problem?

Making your console wider makes bcmstat much easier to read...

Disabling CEC logging is also a good idea (unless your problem relates to CEC, of course). I find logs riddled with CEC crap almost impossible to follow.

As for your problem, yes, try disabling "Extract thumbs".

Whoops, I will disable CEC logging. I think it's enabled by default.

Regarding bcmstat output, I ran it from autostart.sh and pushed it's output to a .log file.

I will remove that specific folder and see what happens (only some demo files I tested once or twice) if that doesn't fix it I will disable Thumbnails extracting as you suggested.

Strange that I haven't noticed this "issue" until now tho.

Thanks for taking your time.

I will let you know how it goes

Yes it is. Probably the first thing to turn off once you've got CEC working!

Never mind, it's fine - I initially viewed it on an Android tablet and the browser (Chrome) is wrapping the lines, which is annoying. A desktop browser displays it correctly.

Thanks, I have turned of the CEC filter now.

After removing that "Demo" directory that contained that specific file CPU load doesn't stick at 100% anymore. Smile

I will investigate the logs better next time I encounter some kind of issue...

Hi Luksol

I have the same tuner- I posted a bit earlier that it is not recognised in openelec official build version 5.

It is seen in these latest builds, but for some reason, these latest builds have ( for me ) a really really slow channel change which makes it difficult to use.
Also ( I am using VDR ), w_scan does not seem to find HD channels.

ON this thread, - http://openelec.tv/forum/71-pvr-live-tv/...mitstart=0 - there is a patched official build of the older kernel that also works.

hope that helps

If you can get it working with a quick channel change ( and if you are using VDR, HD channels ) on the latest builds then let me know.!

Cheers

Pootler

If the channel switch time got slower 21 days ago, then it's probably this:
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/6036

Note this needs a fix to report the correct mime type in the PVR add-on, so best report the issue in the PVR add-on thread.
