OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 15.0) Part 1

I can only suggest you try re-caching them with texturecache.py (it's included as standard with my builds).

Try "texturecache.py @cache.artwork=poster C movies <moviename>" to force the re-caching of your poster artwork for the specified movie (once you're happy with this approach, try it for all your movies by not specifying <moviename>). Unfortunately there's no way for the script to know which of your movie posters are "blown up".

If it continues to happen, try uploading the poster artwork somewhere, maybe it's an odd/unusual format.

If anyone is able to describe an easy way to reproduce the PVR crashes (without tuners etc.) then I'm willing to give it a go, otherwise I'll have to put this aside until someone adds it to an official release and it becomes their problem... Sad

I tried the PVR Demo client, but it worked perfectly (build #0225).

Sorry. Still crashing Sad

Maybe @margro can help?

Also still crashing ... even tried #0228 back to #0213Confused Sad

Well, some users update virtually every day, so it's a choice of 5MB every day, or 5MB just once (the current scheme won't download the video if it's already present).
Not saying that 5MB every update is completely unreasonable, but it is an argument for continuing with the current scheme.

That's what I was thinking. It's a 100MB file anyways, so even if I'd update everyday, would it make a difference whether it's 100 or 105? But anyhow, I understand where you are coming from and also makes sense this way.

Quote:Also, I actually very much like the animation, but the "cut" between the animation and the Isegard screen is quite harsh. Not sure how it can be done better, but maybe some creative minds have some ideas.
You probably also want to add:
"disable_splash=1" to config.txt
nosplash to cmdline.txt
<splash>false</splash> to advancedsettings.xml

to remove the other splash sceens and keep the boot clean.

I'd prefer to keep the Kodi splascreeen as well. I think the Kodi folks are doing a nice job with their splashscreen and it also shows the respective version and new color. Any of the config above would allow them to play nicer together? Where would I disable the animation? Have the Kodi devs already included the anomation in their nightlies? At one point, they will need to "merge" the splash screen and splash animation.

Hello,

i had loaded the newest build of Kodi 15, and because there is no vpn client anymore in the settings, i wanted to install openvpn on my rasp with jodi, but i got a this message:

There is no working 'apt-get'.

'apt-get' is a command to install, update and remove software which
is stored in a non local repo. 'apt-get' does nothing then connecting to such
repo, downloads the software, unpacks the software, updates a big
local database with all filepaths and other informations about the
installed software or removes or updates installed Software.

With OpenELEC it is not possible to change the system for security and
stability reasons so even 'apt-get' would not be able to do this.
We also dont have and want to maintain such a repo for various other
great reasons.

Also Ubuntu or Debian packages are often outdated and not compatible
with OpenELEC

TIP: use XBMC's addon browser to enhance your OpenELEC system


How can i install openvpn now? I find it very sad that i feel i am in the windows/OSX/iOS Corner of software, where i been tied to have no rights to do something ;(

thanx for an inspiration to get openvpn.

Greetz,
J

PS: Congrats to this build, nevertheless. It is awesome!!! runs like hell on PI2 Smile)))

Will look later into the python script. Will take me a bit longer as I am not teh best with puty and command line. How would I put the <movie name>? Is that the file name (i.e., moviename (2005).mkv)?

Also, I noticed that the poster shows up perfectly well and right when selecting "movie information". When back to the list view, it shows yet again the "blown-up" version. Shoudln't this be the same cache? I implicitly recached by deleting all thumbnails and the texture.db files. And yet again the same issue. Never had this issue with the Win and OSX builts.

The animation is experimental. It works best with the static splash disabled (think of the splash animation as a replacement for the static splash, not an addition). If you want to disable the animation, "touch /storage/.config/splash.disable".

No, it's the movie title (partial match, case insensitive).

Examples:
texturecache.py @cache.artwork=poster C movies avatar
texturecache.py @cache.artwork=poster C movies potter

The second example will match all Harry Potter movies.

Are you testing with stock Confluence?

Thanks, remote is working and no more CEC timeout logs.
I agree that the splash movie should not be included. It should work like every other addon and download itself on install. 5 mb is a lot on the long run. maybe it's not a lot for the end user, but for the hosting company's and the people paying for the hosting it could add up pretty fast.
Is it normal when upgrading from Gotham to Kodi 15.0 that it loses all the settings? I just helped my brother update and after rebooting he was prompted for Region, IP settings, had to recalibrate the screen, change the audio output, etc, so it seems it couldn't read the existing settings at all. Have they been moved to a different folder/file?

I didn't have time to check but will his sources still be OK or will I need to edit/create a new sources.xml as well?

No. Although upgrading from Gotham to Kodi 15 probably isn't advisable in any case (fresh/clean installs when upgrading to a new major release).

# Kernel device tree status: Enabled

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (595d0499, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (613593fa, changelog) with the following modifications: Build Highlights:
  1. vdr-addon v4.3.9
  2. PR:6415 included in newclock4 - enables Chapter thumbnail extraction in Bookmarks OSD
    • Performance feedback welcome on this change, as it may be necessary to disable by default on Pi1 and leave enabled on Pi2. There will be a GUI setting eventually.
  3. Added: PR:3895: Use neon-vfpv4 fpu on RPi2
    • Potential performance improvement - see PR for details.
  4. Updated splash video download with wait for network
    • Network wait will timeout eventually. It's a background process, so any waiting shouldn't delay Kodi startup.

Good point. I tried with Confluence and don't have the issue. So, it appears to be a skin issue in Conq. I will let the developer know.

Hi all together ;-)

I have make a fresh install from openELEC_5.0.5 and a DVD over network runs very well in DTS5.1.

Sorry - have the new build #0301 installed - no way - this "old" Phill Collins - Finally Disk1 (DVD7,3GB) is stuttering and stops after 2 minutes and Pi2 freeze now.

splash screen is downloading now without problems.

What have i to do?
Buffering / an other player ?
