So the thumbnails are being downloaded, but are they being successfully cached (ie. written to the Thumbnails folder and Textures13.db)?

There's nothing new in build #0131 that immediately stands out as being a likely culprit....

Thanks Milhouse.

I have gone back to first 15.0-alpha on 16-dec 2014... and see the same problem. So it's an old issue.

I can't see the tbn files in Thumbnails directory. But here a snip from my log, where I have renamed url and movie names:

Code:
05:57:18 240.006561 T:2905601088  NOTICE: CCurlFile::Stat - Content length failed: No error(0) for ftp://USERNAME:[email protected]:21/Movies/Super movie.tbn
05:57:18 240.070114 T:2846880832  NOTICE: CCurlFile::Stat - Content length failed: No error(0) for ftp://USERNAME:[email protected]:21/Movies/Fun movie.tbn

Btw. When I enter the ftp/video folders in Kodi. All "default" movie icons is making a quick blinking, as they try to load.

Best regards
@delinend: I wonder if this is an OpenELEC specific issue (different version of curl), rather than RPi specific. Are you able to confirm this problem with OpenELEC on x86?

Edit: Kodi on Windows is using curl 7.39.1, OpenELEC is currently using 7.40.0, and has been since 11 Jan. Prior to this, from 6 Nov, OpenELEC used curl 7.39.0, so if you're seeing the problem with a December build, testing a version prior to 6 Nov might be useful as this would be using curl 7.38.0 (introduced 13 Sep).

My build #1106 from the evening of 6 Nov predates the 7.39.0 bump and might be worth a shot: download link, release notes.

You could then try build #1108 which bumped to 7.39.0 (not sure why it isn't in #1107, to be honest, so skip that build due to the uncertainty): download link, release notes.

Edit: The version of curl in use up tp 6 Nov would have been 7.37.1 - the commit on 13 Sep relating to 7.38.0 is actually reverting 7.38.0 back to 7.37.1, which I misread.

@Milhouse

I have just testet them....

#1106 Icon's is working fine Blush
#1108 Icon's is NOT working in this build Sad

It may be a curl version problem then ?

Thanks

Best regards
For anyone looking to upgrade a Pi1 installation for use with Pi2, while using the Pi1, upgrade with the RPi2 tar. Once the upgrade is complete, the system will reboot to a rainbow boot screen (as you're now booting the ARMv7 kernel). Shutdown (pull the power) and transfer the SD card into your Pi2, which will boot normally.

To go back to the Pi1: While using the Pi2, upgrade with the RPi tar. Once the upgrade is complete, the system will reboot to a rainbow boot screen (as you're now using the ARMv6 kernel). Shutdown (pull the power) and transfer the SD card into your Pi1, which will boot normally.

Yes, that would be my guess, and would need to be reported to OpenELEC.

Cool. I wondered if this would work, but wasn't quite sure. I'll add it to the OE Raspberry Pi FAQ.
RPi2 running fine so far!

Thanks Milhouse!

Some problem with video scaling / deinterlacing (TVheadend recordings).
Not sure, probably just the missing MPEG decoder license (will re-test once it's here).

Re: "Include PR:6246: [pvr] Improve PVR startup time", I have not observed any discernible improvement since this was introduced (about a week ago IIRC).
Thanks - there has been some debate regarding the pros and cons of the pull request. If it's not doing what it's supposed to do, I'll drop it from the next build.

I see startup time improvement in my x86 OE installation, but not really with the RPi. Perhaps because the PVR startup is occurring while the CPU is busy doing other things. Perhaps there would be an improvement in PVR startup time with the RPi2.
OK thanks, in that case I'll leave it in for a few more days and maybe we'll get some Pi2 testers.

Of course, there should be a significant improvement on the RPi2 without this PR as well. Testers will have to test against OpenELEC 5.0.1
I just got my pi 2 and what I would like to know do we still need to use usb to bring the best out of it like version 1. Or do I just experiment and find out ?. Version 1 is running great after I figured that my CEC issues were related to high overclock. Can't wait to get home and plug it in and see the improvement in the pvr section as that is what I use the pi for 95% of time.
