OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 16.0)
I second the crash reports for DVB. #809 vdr-addon, VNSI, FTA or encrypted. Video stalls, audio keeps on playing,
can't tune to a different channel.

My gut feeling is that firmware doesn't handle corrupted MPEG TS/PS well. Which will eventually show up, because
DVB is not 100% good data all the time. Maybe memleak, maybe internal structure corruption.

To prove my hypothesis I propose to record a DVB channel for maybe 2-4 hours and through playback of this file
from disk try to crash the GPU decoder. Can Kodi play TS or PS from file and which container format would be best?
So far I only tested MKV. But I think a test case can be established. If a static file provokes crash, divide file in half,
and try halfes to provoke crash. Divide remains until crash disappears, take last file that provoked the crash.

Also one thing I haven't tried is to disable hardware decode acceleration. I.E. tune to a MPEG2 DVB-channel and let
the ARM decode, not GPU. ffmpeg is a tough cookie, see if the pi crashes now.
