Hey there Milhouse :-)

Any plans to use optimize the builds with NEON? As far as I know that would make for a substantial boost in performance specially in some of the most demanding video codecs. Maybe with that 720p h10 would be possible for example :-)

Edit. Oh and I forgot to thank you for all the time you dedicate to this project, you and all the other members of the Kodi and OpenElec teams, thank you :-)

OpenELEC RPi2 builds are already optimised for NEON. That's why there are separate RPi (ARMv6, non-NEON) and RPi2 (ARMv7, NEON) builds.

That's great, I thought only the kernel was updated but without the NEON optimizations.

In the other hand, that's not that great news for the software decoding of stuff like hi10 videos, the improvements while being noticeable are still not that big enough to decode most video codecs using software and HD resolutions.
Well, at least it did improved a lot in the audio department Smile

Oh well, time to get my new Pi2 the MPEG2 license as well then xD

I have one suggestion too. I think the line "smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N" should be added to /flash/cmdline.txt because without it we will get lots of kernel errors while the ethernet chip is under high load, making sometimes packets to be lost or o have a kernel panic and the system to halt. Tried this both in the Pi1 512MB RAM Model B and the Pi2. You can check this by yourself by uploading multiple big files to an USB device connected to the Pi through ftp and running dmesg. That alone will likely not be enough for the system to hang, but if the user is for example, running a torrent server, watching online streams or even reading files from an USB device that could be enough, and with "smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N" we can prevent that..

I don't think the majority of users run such services, or max out their network bandwidth to that extent (I do, when testing, but I'm yet to experience the problem you describe). Rather than potentially reduce network bandwidth for everyone, this setting should be added by those that require it.

Sorry is this is not the right place to put my problem.

I've a problem with network settings, can't change ipv4 dhcp to static ip. I've done a fresh install in RPI2, but in RPI 1 it happens too. I use Milhouse builds (thanks Milhouse, great job!)

VPN settings don't exist in network also.

Can someone explain to me if has similar problem and if is possible to solve?

Thanks for the compreension.

Does this also happen with the official OpenELEC 5.0.3?

VPN is no longer part of the official build, you'll need to install OpenVPN from the Unofficial repository.

Yes, it happens also with official release i think. But, and i don't know when it stops the feature of changing dhcp to manual and other way arround in the GUI, i know that last month i did change and it was working fine, in one of your releases Milhouse.

What i did to solve, but is not up to be a solution, was editing settings file with nano in .cache/connman/... and change values to manual, filling all the fields not present like IPv4.local_address=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, and so on.
Now OpenELEC Settings GUI i cannot change manual to dhcp (it happens that a little windows opened to choose, manual, dhcp ou off , that doesn't appear anymore).

About VPN is not an issue, i will try openVPN.

I have installed milhouse latest build in the Pi2 and some streams are working ok. Do you know if I install the openelec 7.0.3 in the Pi2 the librtmp will still working?
You'll need to identify the build that last worked. The problem could be due to a connman change, or OpenELEC-Settings add-on change. As the problem exists in the official builds you may want to start a separate discussion thread, or post on the OpenELEC forum.

Official OpenELEC doesn't have the KSV librtmp patches. Whether you need the KSV patches for the streams you want to view, I have no idea. Try it and see.

Can you identify the last working build?

It's a RPi2, so none of your builds have worked... I can't test a Rpi1 build on a 2 can I?

Sorry get back to you Milhouse but i've done all the process back, ie, formating the card; installing official openelec 5.0.3 (kernel 3.18.6) build 20229 08 Feb 2015 and everything on network and even with vpn was ok. Then i updated openelec with your last version build 20260 (12 Feb 15) and i had the same problem, ie, the network IPv4 don't let me change from DHCP to manual or to off. The VPN settings on network and NTP servers blank.

Can this be something with your build?

Please Milhouse don't get me wrong. I'm very pleased with your builds and i'm a fan of you work with respect and consideration it's the best openelec arround.

OK, I've taken a look at the OpenELEC Settings -> Connections dialog, and it does look as though it's broken in recent builds, presumably 3.19 but I'll try and narrow down the precise build. Seems to be RPi2 specific too.

No sadly you can't.

This is probably something that needs to be flagged up with the relevant maintainer - I wonder if it's anything like the PVR problem that is now (hopefully) fixed in the next test build. I'll upload a debug build later this evening, you could test that and capture a more detailed crashlog which might prove beneficial in terms of working towards a fix.
