Thanks - I'm going to replace the meaningless upstream revision code with the meaningful build code in the tar filename starting with the next build.

Anyone updating using OpenELEC Dev Update will need version 3.12.0 of the addon to see the latest build #0217.

You said performance increases with MySQL. Anything in particular we should test?
Would you expect library scanning to be faster?

Are people that reported problems with #0216 hanging on startup still having problems with #0217 or #0218?

It would be good if people could help test the benefit of this change, particularly if they're on a WiFi network.

Initial evidence suggests that low end MySQL servers may incur an overhead due to the compression of the query results, so comparing the elapsed time of queries (enable DEBUG, grep for RunQuery) to confirm if only low-end servers are disadvantaged by compression will be useful. However any increased computational overhead may be offset by reduced wire traffic, which could still benefit WiFi users, even when the server is low-end.

For me all queries are taking longer with #0218. I'm running MySQL on a Synology NAS with GigE network. Client is Pi2 at 1080MHz. e.g.

#0217
DEBUG: RunQuery took 252 ms for 174 items query: select * from movie_view WHERE ((movie_view.playCount IS NULL OR movie_view.playCount < 1))

#0218
DEBUG: RunQuery took 283 ms for 174 items query: select * from movie_view WHERE ((movie_view.playCount IS NULL OR movie_view.playCount < 1))

Thanks. I may not respond to every reply posting results - I'll probably collate them for a comment in PR6484, or simply post a link to this thread so the relevant parties can determine the effectiveness of the change themselves.

Is anyone using a higher-end MySQL server (ie. i3, i5 etc.)? I think low-end-ish servers are likely to add a noticeable delay with the extra compression stage, but this may not be nearly so bad with higher end gear.

Also, comparing the results over WiFi would be interesting (I'm guessing there may be a noticeable benefit when accessing a low-end server over WiFi).

It may be that compression is only of benefit when the client-to-server connection is bandwidth limited (so not wired, and irrespective of server spec).

Edit: Just to add - when reporting results please include the hardware spec of your MySQL server (Make/Model/CPU/RAM), Kodi client (Pi1/Pi2, ARM frequency), and network connection (WiFi 11g/n/ac etc., wired 10/100/1000Mbit/s etc.)

Does anyone knows why the red led turns off after rainbow on RPi2. This happens only on Samsung MicroSD cards.

P.s.: I think i have found the problem. It was config file but do not know yet which parameter in it.
This is the config that turns off the red led http://pastebin.com/UR635shz

Probably the overclock. Remove the config.txt (or comment out the options) then add the options back one by one until you hit the problem again.

Exactly. Adding items to the library is a lot faster now.

yes, it is now working correctly.

Also, manual method of upgrading builds (by putting .tar with build into /storage/.update) works too.

P.S. Milhouse, thanks for your work Smile

FYI - monoscopic 3D is still not working with #218 - so the firmware change didn't fix this issue for me
