Check that hardware acceleration is enabled (bring up codec info with 'o' key).
Try enabling omxplayer in video/acceleration settings if it is disabled.
smallstepback is no longer existent (the action is mapped to smart seeking), thats why -7 is enabled by default. and this new skip feature is especially of value to the pi and also watching internet streams. to me it was almost impossible to skip something like 40 mins on a web stream as it took ages to perform each instant skip and start caching over and over again. with smart seeking even larger jumps are not much of an issue any more.
For big jumps it's easier to enter a time offset if you've got a number pad on your remote, ie: "4000" followed by right arrow button would skip forward 40 minutes.

Thanks ! Yes OMX player got disabled after the update
Hi
I installed the 0220 build on my raspberry pi2
The live streams from the TV Portuguesa addon stopped working
I downgraded to the build 218 and they are working again. Was there any change in the librtmp for the 220 build?

None that I'm aware of.

Some issues with RPi2 versions 218 + 220:

1. The keys cursor left/right do not function with LiveTV (full screen). Expected: Previous/Next channel group; Actually: None/None.
2. The window "Buffering" on top right with LiveTV (full screen) does not disappear when ready.

Did 217 have these issues?
Don't know! Issues can be older. I detected them by chance. Should I install 217 and check?
BTW: To point 2. Initially, that is when switching to another channel, the window disappears. But if the stream is disturbed during playback, then "buffering" occurs again (it's ok) but does not disappear automatically when the stream is fine again.

Finding the exact build that introduced an issue makes it a lot easier to diagnose.
I know! But it could be rather boring to go "n" versions back by flashing the device. With version 217 both issues exist too.
Funny: On my RPi (not RPi2!) with version 211 the device will step back / step forward with cursor left/right on LiveTV (!) This is right with video reproduction but not with Live-TV.
RPi #220 has identical issues as RPi2 #220. So I guess that something has happened before #211!? Sorry!

Summary for the functions of cursor left/right on LiveTV:
RPi #211 -> Step back / forward (wrong, videos only)
RPi2 #217 -> none (wrong)
RPi2 #220 -> none (wrong)
RPi #220 -> none (wrong)
Not just that, but reporting something is "broken in build X + Y" gives the impression it stopped working in X, and can cause people to waste time investigating dead ends. So please, if you find something that no longer works it's essential to know in what build it last worked - if you don't know this then make that clear (and the issue will take longer to fix, unless the cause is obvious).

This kind of information is really the minimum needed when a fault is discovered, and the whole point of providing daily builds.

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.

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

Here's a list of builds I have been trying on my Pi B+

Code:
#0131 > #0220  has the same issue.
#0130 - dim
#0120 - dim
#0110 - dim
#0101 - dim
#1215 - dim
#0415b - wlan0 eth0 not working.
OE 5.0.1 - dim
OE 5.0.0 - dim
OE 4.97.x - dim
OE 4.95.1 - dim
OE 4.2.1 - OK

#0415b was the last build that I tried. I couldn't get the network to work so I gave up the testing (since I'm the only one reporting this issue...)

Sorry for not being able to find the exact build. I don't expect you guys to find the cause for the issue I'm experiencing, I just wanted to let you know the results.

BTW, I tried to play a movie with flac (Lossless) audio on both Pi b+ and Pi2 B. The playback was really sluggish and audio was several seconds ahead. I tried all possible settings. OMXPlayer hardware support made it better but not enough to make it watchable.
Doesn't the DVDPlayer/OMXPlayer support flac?
Ok, I will be quiet in future! I clearly pointed out that I found these "issues" by chance. If I can clearly say when it happened I would of course do that!
