OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 16.0)

No, MMAL means dvdplayer (now videoplayer) with HW acceleration. It does fall back to software decode when HW acceleration is not available
(but that is not technically MMAL - it will behave the same as MMAL disabled).

Quote:Anyway, unfortunately it seems I was a little hasty in saying my issue was fixed. With the codec installed and build #0908 loaded, back the aspect ratio issue came. Guess I need to be a little more patient...
No fix yet. There are a few ways of fixing this, none are trivial.
One thing I'm thinking of is moving deinterlace from the decoder into the renderer.
That will have the side effect of fixing your issue and could have performance benefits.
However it's a big change, and there may be downsides, so it needs some experimentation.

Can you confirm you have the correct sort order in #0904 and later builds.

Not sure if it's just logged twice or it actually retries a second time, but on #0908:
Code:
21:08:50 69350.546875 T:1472197632  NOTICE: Thread JobWorker start, auto delete: true
21:08:50 69350.562500 T:1966575616  NOTICE: Display resolution ADJUST : 1920x1080 (1920x1080) @ 25.00 - Full Screen (29) (weight: 0.000)
21:08:50 69350.671875 T:1451222016  NOTICE: Thread DelayedMessage start, auto delete: true
21:08:50 69350.992188 T:1966575616  NOTICE: Display resolution ADJUST : 1920x1080 (1920x1080) @ 25.00 - Full Screen (29) (weight: 0.000)

The DelayedMessage is "Pause during refresh rate change" and I can't see it being paused for double the time it's configured to - infact if I wasn't reading the log I couldn't see any difference.
Might also be normal with the refactor...

(Speaking of that - I'm wondering if there's really no way to detect automatically when the display has switched to the new resolution/refresh rate/3D mode/...?)

No. Technically it takes a few vsyncs to change resolution from the Pi's point of view.
But there is an unknown number of seconds after that for the display to sync up to the new signal.
No idea why it can't be done almost instantly. Some displays are reasonable and take a second or two. But I've seen displays that take ten seconds.
anyone else having issue with the 4.20.0 version of Leopold OpenELEC Dev Update script on an RPi2?
I am not able to select anything other than an Official Snapshot. All other options are grayed out. This is new with the 4.20.0 build for me.
I just checked,
I'm able to select them.
At first it looks greyed out.
But if you select them and press enter you're and to choose a build.
He has a support topic for his add-on on the OpenElec forum.
LibreElec Kodi | Aeon MQ7 | Onkyo TX-SR875 | Teufel System 5 THX Cinema 5.1 
SuperMicro Server WSE2012R2 | E3-1241 v3 | RAM 32 GB | Drivepool 18TB
I can't mouse down to select them. I did post it on that forum, just wanted to see if it was just me or not.

I have a question. I have heard the settings are now located in a different file. When I updated a few days ago I lost some settings like subtitles settings, screensaver settings and some other stuff. I read the benifits are that these settings are now in a separate file which you can easily copy between 2 openelec installs. I have 2 Raspberry pi's and I want to copy this new settings files from one to another.

Where can I find this file? And how to copy.

Thank you.

Note that this thread should not be treated as a catch all for all questions. General questions like these really belong in their own separate thread as they are not OpenElec-RPi specific. Even though I know how tempting it is to post in an active thread, it doesn't help the discussion.

Having said that:
You can read a bit about what was done here: http://kodi.tv/kodi-16-0-alpha-jarvis-at-your-service/
What that means is that JUST the skin related settings have been moved from /storage/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml to /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/skin.confluence/settings.xml. Here Confluence is the skin in my case. The folder part skin.confluence differs when you use a different skin. The settings.xml file can be copied to a different install to the same location when the other install uses the same skin as well.
Running 0908 and I've noticed something strange with the playback of some recorded tv. The buffer periodically empties to zero, playback pauses for a second or two and then starts back with 100% buffer full again. I've determined that if I turn off deinterlacing completely the issue does not occur. It does occur with both auto and mmal-advanced deinterlacing. The example I was working with is from last night's late show with Stephen Colbert premier.

Is there a thread for you Nvidia Legacy builds? My remote and keyboard don't work. Thanks.

Not yet, so far you're probably the only person (other than me) using that build.

I hadn't noticed any problems with a Revo3700/Nvidia_Legacy with USB IR remote (VRC-1100), however I've just plugged a USB keyboard in to the Revo and there are no key presses being received within Kodi, not sure why.

I booted OpenELEC with "textmode" appended to the kernel line in extlinux.conf which boots the OS into a text console, and the keyboard is working perfectly there so it doesn't appear to be an OS issue. Hmmm.

I thought it might be PR7561 and added a comment referencing your post and there's some evidence of changed sort orders but nothing conclusive. Not sure what else to suggest.
