OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 15.0) Part 1
(2015-02-25, 17:17)slack3r Wrote: I have found that there is a big difference in GUI rendering between build #0104 and #0106.

Is this the case when "limit GUI updates when playing videos" is disabled in video/acceleration settings?

#104 brought in "dirty rectangles for video" which broke "limit GUI updates" until #125.
With "limit GUI updates" disabled, you should be able to compare more fairly.
Another thing I've noticed with DVDPlayer is that when you access the OSD for the first time (= it's loaded in memory), you get one or two dropped frames. This is confirmed by the codec info overlay. The same happens when you then access the audio OSD settings dialog, video OSD, bookmark dialog etc (every dialog accessible from the OSD). Once these windows are loaded in memory no single frames is dropped, even for a different video (https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master...se.cpp#L76).
I'm not able to reproduce every time, but pretty frequently (85%?). Of course you need to restart Kodi to see this. I'm wondering if all these could be loaded on startup (it's a media center...).

Yes, agreed that could be useful. Suggest a patch that loads the OSD on startup and we'll try it in the test builds (and it may be sensible for pushing upstream).
About mysql compression.

I use mysql over vpn, and have 2-3 ms to the mysql server, Both server and client is pretty fast.

Three runquerys from kodi without compression. 469, 439, 429 and 433.
Three with compression, 159, 153, 149

If I use mysql client and do select * from movieview ; I get 0.29 without and 0.09 with compression.

No, Is not: GUI updates are limited to 10fps. But disabling it I get the same: build #0106 runs at 30fps, #0104 at 60fps.

Check https://github.com/anaconda/xbmc/commit/...505a37d6cf - it's completely untested as of now.
I have changed the loading type of every dialog I could find in https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master...deoOSD.xml - I don't have PVR but I guess the 2 PVR dialogs behave the same.

Also, I meant skipped frames, not dropped.

Looks good. Get this on startup:

    • native resolution (615486f1)
    • allow to disable native resolution switching through GUI (4cadac04)

Does this mean there is no native resolution (no upscaling by raspberry but let the receiver with upscaling processor do a better job) in this build anymore? Is it upstream or did it go away?

It's been dropped as being buggy and not looking likely to be fixed up soon. Info on current state here.

Thanks.

Note that starting with #0224 MySQL compression is disabled by default, but can be re-enabled by adding "<compression>on</compression>" to your <videodatabase>/<musicdatabase> tags in advancedsettings.xml.

MySQL compression looks like it could be be a significant benefit on WiFi connections, but is probably going to have a negative impact over a decent wired connection.

Hi guys. First post, but long time admirer of Milhouse builds... Big Grin

Plenty of

Code:
unexpected IRQ trap at vector 00

in dmesg outputs of RPi builds #0225 and #0224.

No such errors in dmesg output of RPi build #0223 or in RPi2 dmesg outputs of any build mentioned here.

Yes, I spotted that. Should be fixed in next build:

Thanks for the quick feedback. Tested this too, no skipped frames the first time these dialogs are accessed, except the bookmarks one (always 1 frame). I'll investigate this - will ping you in case the commit in newclock4 needs an update.
