OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 16.0)
Does this mean that IPTV simple addon will now be able to timeshift?
Not yet, all this means is that the PVR addons will build against the new API. Each add-on will need to implement the time-shifting functionality, as right now they just return "false" when queried if they support time-shifting.

So far no more crashes and the deinterlacing looks great!

Are these value for rpi1 or 2?
Those settings should work with both Pi1 and Pi2.

I'm specifically running an RPi2 though, in fact 2 of them because they're so awesome.

I changed mine last night to just gpu_freq=450 and no over voltage. I am also using "echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor" instead of force_turbo=1. So far, seems to be stable and when watching live TV at 1080i60 it doesn't drop frames, rarely skips any and doesn't "miss" many either (I am using the resample audio option and it shows missed frames in the info popup).

I actually ordered some heatsinks which should arrive tomorrow to try and keep the temps a little cooler when overclocking.
Question 
Dear Developers,

Starting from the end of previous version (v15) and still continuing on this version (v16 alpha), Librarly Cleanup stucks at around 13% after automatically updating the library. Do you have any suggestions? I think my library is corrupted some how (maybe a power cut caused it).

Probably, a debug log (wiki) might shed more light. Unlikely to be related to these builds, try 5.95.3 and I'd expect you to have a similar problem. My advice: drop/delete it and rescan a fresh library.

Based on tip of OpenELEC master (0cfb546d, changelog) and tip of XBMC master (563fc2e6, changelog) with the following modifications: Build Highlights:
  1. New firmware
  2. The PTS/DTS timestamp option is removed:
    popcornmix Wrote:I'm hoping to push a firmware update tonight that solves the pts/dts timestamp issue. Realistically I suspect it may take a few iterations to handle all types of files, but will be good to get some testing soon.
    ...
    The "prefer pts" option is gone. A lot of files seem to play well, but I would expect there to be some regressions.

    If you find any files that are stuttery, then samples are useful.
  3. There is also an improvement to advanced 1080i deinterlace (lower gpu overclock required)
  4. Fix stutter regression (see thread)
  5. Known issue: Splash video is not appearing (and delays appearance of Kodi GUI by about 20 seconds)
Build Details:
  1. Firmware (Jul 22):

    • firmware: di_adv: Updated qpu with semaphore synchronisation between qpus
    • firmware: video_decode: Various fixes to timestamp handling
      • video_decode: Remove avoid_fix_ts paramater
      • video_decode: Treat fragmented packets as unknown timestamps
      • video_decode: Don't set the frame time from the userdata callback
      • video_decode: Sanity check the frame_interval and repeat count from codec
      • video_decode: Tweak timestamp quality measure
      • video_decode: Add flag to indicate presence of DTS timestamps
      • video_decode: Force starttime packet to not be an unknown timestamp

Can anyone currently running the advanced deinterlacer with overclock try reducing the overclock?
I'm hoping that gpu_freq=300 (for 1080i60) should be okay with tonight's build. 250 is probably okay for 1080i50.

Also the "prefer PTS timestamps" option has been removed.
If you had problems with stutter and needed that option set a specific way, can you test again?
Samples of files that still stutter would be useful.
It's great!

OMXplayer works perfect now ,no matter PTS timestamps or not,all smooth no stutter

Seems to work fine for 1080i50 with gpu_freq=250.

No stuttering live HDTV for me with this build so you've nailed that case at least. Nice work.

Hi.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9_XmyO...sp=sharing
With OMX much better then MMAL.
Is there any news about artifacts on VC-1i? Seem like problem with cadence.
Thank you, for your job.
Running Millhouse #722 solid as a rock!! DVDPlayer on... OMX off HAPPY!!
Goodbye drops and skips Smile
Question 
(2015-07-15, 14:48)Milhouse Wrote: Stop overclocking sdram_freq - it gives practically no benefit, but can often result in instability with recent firmware.

I too had a completely stable Pi2 for months with sdram_freq=500, but recent firmware resulted in random crashes and freezes, which went away once I stopped overclocking sdram_freq.

You could possibly regain stability by bumping up the sdram voltage, but unlike the Pi1, the Pi2 benefits very little from overclocking sdram (mainly because the ARMv7 SoC has increased L2 cache) so ultimately the increased risk of instability is just not worth the hassle for the meagre improved performance (which you probably won't even notice).

Question:
So don't set sdram_freq at all? OR set it to sdram_freq=400? (at least I was under the impression 400 was the original Openlec default)

I'm running this now, seems to work pretty fine:
Code:
force_turbo=1      #used to push het gpu overclock
  initial_turbo=60 #old-line; used this before to help prevent sd corruption --Still not sure if it was useless because off the force_turbo=1
  arm_freq=1062
  core_freq=590
# sdram_freq=400
  over_voltage=4
  over_voltage_sdram_c=0
  over_voltage_sdram_i=0
  over_voltage_sdram_p=2
  avoid_pwm_pll=1
  v3d_freq=400
  h264_freq=400

disable_pvt=1      #Disable adjusting the refresh rate of RAM every 500 ms
