OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 15.0) Part 1

Edit: It happens even on clean install... I tried to take a photo and a movie of it but it's really hard.

Does the dim happen immediately playback starts, or after a while?
Can you go through the display options on your TV and disable everything? I wonder if a power save or ambient light detection setting is triggering unwantedly.

It happens immediately. I have checked all possible settings on both of my tv's already because I suspected something like that as well.

Does it happen the same with both TV's? Make and model of TV's (and any other equipment on the HDMI path, like receivers/splitters).
If you can find an older build that doesn't have the issue, that would help track it down.

Yes it does but only with dvd's.

Here's my unit list:

RPi 2 B > Marantz NR1403 > Samsung UE46ES6715
RPi B+ > LG 26LD350N-ZA

I will do my best to track down from which build this started to happen.

And just a side note, I don't need to use sync playback to display. Movies are playing just fine without it, I just followed your advice that I found here.
With that said, don't break your neck over this until someone confirms this issue or until I have found a build were this doesn't happen. Smile
Mmh, I'm extremely surprised that this issue haven't been reported before.
After testing many many builds I decided to make a drastic build switch and OE 4.2.1 has no display dimming issues :/
I can't remember when I started to use sync to display option and since only my kids are watching DVDs I haven't noticed the issue myself until yesterday. My movies are mkv only.

Can anyone suggests a build to try? My testing motivation is fading away Big Grin

Well, the oldest build from this thread (#1215) and the oldest build from the last thread (#0415b) would be a couple of points in the sand.
Hi,
I just installed #0208 on my Pi2 and it runs excellent! Many thanks! But now I miss the nice splash video. Instead, I get a message "Splash video download failed" aft the UI is stable. The Pi2 is for sure connected to the internet by cable. What's wrong?

Thanks, I gave #1215 a try but my wifi dongle doesn't work with this build. The bad thing is that I need to remove the TV from the wall to reach the rpi so I can connect a cable Tongue

I will continue the testing tomorrow. Wink

Your Pi2 may be connected by a cable to your router, but that doesn't mean your Pi2 is "connected" to the internet.

Log in to your Pi2 with ssh and run the following command, what do you see:
Code:
wget http://milhouse.openelec.tv/other/splash.h264 -O - >/dev/null

If it fails, there's a problem with your local network setup (DNS, most likely).

I have received the mpeg codec and now everything is displaying properly like in pi 1.

Stupid forum software is mangling any URL that includes PR and four digits (such as the link in #4, above). Geez.

Hi Milhouse,
with all respect, but the Pi2 is indeed connected to the internet!
Code:
RasPi2:~ # wget http://milhouse.openelec.tv/other/splash.h264 -O - >/dev/null
Connecting to milhouse.openelec.tv (82.220.2.33:80)
-                    100% |*******************************|  5662k  0:00:00 ETA
RasPi2:~ #

The download was done in <2s. But there is still NO splash video and an error message occurs after approx. 10s when the UI is stable:
Image

I have now manually stored the file into /storage/.cache and it works fine with your nice opener. But maybe you have a look on that again. Could be a timing problem if you request the file before the Pi's IP address is established by the router.
That's always possible, in which case enable wait for network in OpenELEC Settings. Remember this is an experimental feature - just disable it if it's a problem (touch /storage/.config/splash.disable).

No, I like the opener and I'm fine with the "manual" solution.
