I think that should do it.

Ok, so no cleaning anything before I put this in the file?

Once you add that to as.xml, only new artwork will be cached with the new algorithm.

If you want existing artwork to be cached with the new algorithm you'll need to clear your texture cache - delete Textures13.db and the Thumbnails folder - then allow Kodi to re-cache your artwork (the script in my sig can help do this automatically).

Hello,
Fix for missing text in notifications is'nt working on my Pi2.
The Box appears emty on the right lower side with an blu exclamation point ...

[#0713: RPi2] =>
ok, the reason is, that i don't have any working Video Addons - no Internetconnection.

[#0712: RPi2]
All Video AddOns are working fine with this build.

It does need some overclock. Something like:
Code:
core_freq=400
v3d_freq=400
over_voltage=2
force_turbo=1

You can probably get away without the over_voltage setting which avoids setting the warranty bit. I could still run with core_freq=500, v3d_freq=500, h264_freq=500 without over_voltage.

To confirm you are running the qpu/advanced deinterlacer you can run:
Code:
while : ; do vcdbg malloc |grep -i qpu ; sleep 1 ; done

You should see occasional lines like:
Code:
0x3e5f3160 = malloc(480)  [qpu_malloc]
(which shows the qpu code is running) when set to "Advanced", but not when set to "Auto" when playing 1080i.

Where can I set this up exactly so these settings can bet set as default?

Play a video. Bring up video OSD settings. Make sure "Deinterlace video" is set to "Auto" and "Deinterlace method" is set to "MMAL - Advanced".
Now choose "Set as default for all videos" and you should find any interlaced video you play uses the high quality algorithm.

I recommend adding
Code:
gpu_freq=400
force_turbo=1

which doesn't set your warranty bit (assuming you don't specify over_voltage) and seems to work on most Pi's.
You may be able to set gpu_freq=500 which gives a bit more overhead (e.g. when there are overlays on screen).
#98
When I put in:

gpu_freq=400

System is freezing and cec is not working anymore

The notification text is working in #0713, at least via the JSON method.

If you don't have a working network connection in #0713 please describe your setup - are you using WiFi or wired? Upload a debug log (wiki). If you're using WiFi, the output from dmesg would also be useful.

The high CPU load in Music > Files (and Video > Files, and quite possibly elsewhere) should be fixed in the next build (PR7504). Thanks for mentioning this, @MrNice. Smile

Hello again, well i'm wired - after a new update from '#0712 to '#0713 all VideoAddons works.
The notification text is working, if somthing iss missing on the List , for example: no Video from disposition, they all will beshown in the advertising copy notification text.

ok -Your right.

I think, some of my Addon makes Trouble on Start, and this wil be shown with an empty Notification ...

...and this is now my problem ;-)

It does need some overclock. Something like:
Code:
core_freq=400
v3d_freq=400
over_voltage=2
force_turbo=1

I'm sure a lot of PVR users will be happy that this is being worked on.
It's not working for me yet Sad
Log, screenshot, and example file are here.

With both 0713 and 071, no overclock and no changing the deinterlacer from the default I have an issue playing the 1080i_h264-2.ts sample file from http://solidrun.maltegrosse.de/~fritsch/

The video never really updates after the first frame or two. I have uploaded the logs to http://sprunge.us/eeYF

Testing your video with #0714 on RPi2, I tried "Auto" and "MMAL - Advanced" but this hangs Kodi on a frozen frame - it's not garbled like your screenshot however. It does require a reboot of OpenELEC (rather than just a "systemctl restart kodi") otherwise the GPU seems to be messed up. Further attempts to play this video with "Auto"/"MMAL-Advanced" result in an immediate freeze with the first frame visible, although thankfully the GUI is still responding so it's possible to reset deinterlace to "Auto". If I select "On"/"MMAL-Advnaced" while playing the video it will freeze, I restart OpenELEC, then on playing this video again there is no image visible (just a black screen) and again the player is frozen (GUI still responds though).

I also found a sample 1080i video called "PAW Patrol.ts" - I think this video had problems a while ago with changes of frame rate (or was it number of audio channels?) at the advert transitions (although to be honest, I'm not really sure where the adverts end and the programmes start in this video, but that's another matter...).

Anyway with "Auto"/"MMAL - Advanced", the "PAW Patrol.ts" video plays very badly, headache inducing bad (it gave me a headache anyway). The first serious problem appears at about 45 seconds with the Disney Princess (major flickering - it looks like frames shown a few seconds previously are being shown again, alternately with a new frame), and this continues throughout. It doesn't crash, hang or freeze, though. A slightly less serious issue, there's also a bright line that is sometimes visible at the top of the video which I don't think should be there (it comes and goes throughout the video, but is usually there at the start during the monster car race scene).
