OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 15.0) Part 1
(2015-01-20, 12:54)illiac4 Wrote: Hi. A few builds back the gpio ir sensor was working good with normal RC6 remote. Now when using it, one key-press causes two presses so it can not be used. The good news is that gpio was not working on RPI+ (build 14. dec) but on jan 19 build one works but causes two key-presses on both RPI models (+ and older one with 512mb ram).

If you can identify the exact Milhouse build where the double presses started it would help identify the cause.
aspect ratio does not work, 4: 3, zom, zom wide, I put some pictures with openelec 5

@popcornmix these 2 are now superseded by https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/6235 which you may want to include instead. I've confirmed that it still fixes the issue reported at https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/issues/3725

Maybe the problem is elsewhere?

If you can identify the last Milhouse build that had fast channel switching speed then we might be able to track it down.

--Fernetmenta

a debug log may also shed some light on it,

Sorry i just don't have time to go through all the previous builds, but I have got logs for

1) VDR channel changing times in OE 5(official) -

http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=397105

and

2)VDR channel changing in latest dev builds.


http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=397098


In both cases I rebooted and then went straight to TV, and selected the first four identical channels.

Channel changing times with dev builds ranged from 17 seconds , a couple of 10/11s, and one 6s
Also stopping the channel results in a delay of up to 5s before screen returns to menu

Channel changes in OE5 are almost consistently around 4s, and stopping the channel results in less than 1s before menu screen appears?

I don't know why but OE5 feels a lot snappier than dev builds- it is usually the other way around!

(the dev build was a fresh install)

The test were done with hauppauge dvb stick.

Have now bought two geniatech t230 dvb t2 sticks, and am looking forward to Freeview HD in the UK - although as mentioned to Fernetmenta, can someone tell me why w_scan cannot find the HD channels for this stick! Smile

I do hope this info is useful

cheers

how get rid of black bars on film ?
Change the aspect ratio ("zoom", press Z on a keyboard, maybe OK/Select on a remote) during video playback. Some films have the black bars "burned in" and zooming may only help so much.

Select a remote control when playing the movie does nothing
I put some pictures up
Is this also a problem with stock OpenELEC 5.0, or just these builds? See previous posts above about disabling native resolution.

Will test it tomorrow evening and report.

Hadn't done it yet, but upgraded to latest Version, no problems anymore. It's still strange, why it happened with #0117.
I don't know why but the latest build (#0120) is insanely smooth, it's the best I have seen.
