I believe it's just an overlooked grep and there was no intention to break existing add-ons. I think we should deprecate PLAYER_CORE_DVDPLAYER, but it should be added back and return the same value as PLAYER_CORE_VideoPlayer.
(Will look at it later today.)

Edit: Not saying that updating the add-on once VideoPlayer is merged is not an acceptable option, of course.
Not a single addon should ever dictate what player it uses. Period.
The option where an addon could dictate what player to use has been deprecated in pydocs for at least two versions or more.
Any addon doing this is wrong and they should fix it theirselves. So we should not introduce backwards compatibility because some plugin does something stupid. 99% of the other plugins just work
why didn't we simply drop this feature? AlTheKiller had a PR for that and it got voted down.

Some one didn't like the way it was done. So i just dropped it from API docs so at least every one stopped using it
Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting, read this first

Have you enabled "use fullframe 3D modes" in video acceleration settings? Disable it and try again. If this is your issue, then your TV doesn't support this mode in your GUI refresh rate. Try switching the GUI refresh rate to 24Hz, enable fullframe 3D and try again. AFAIK this is a bug that needs a fix (-> don't use GUI fps on 3D modes but movie fps). Popcornmix already knows about it as we tackled the issue down me testing different combinations.

Should we give it another try? We might need a way to tell that a certain video should be played to a UPNP renderer instead of local renderer, but that should be a different feature. Something like kodi.getAvailableRenderers() and kodi.play(fileReference, rendererParamThatDefaultsToLocal) (note that this is just pseudo code, didn't check current pydocs)
Hi all and sorry for my bad english before anything. I installed a fresh helix 14.2 openelec version on my pi2, everything seems ok. So I put your last firmware tar file in the update openelec directory and reboot the pi2. But no update is available after the reboot and the tar file is always in the update directory.

Oh sorry i m a noobs i put it in the wrong openelec device......

Awesome works thanks a lot

You will not put the .tar file in update folder. You can use winrar to open the .tar file and then copy you KERNEL, KERNEL.md5, SYSTEM and SYSTEM.md5 files from targer folder to the update folder.
This is how you update openelec.

This is how you update openelec.

You shouldn't need to uncompress the archive anymore, Openelec will do this automatically.

My process for updating is to SSH into the Rpi and run these commands:

cd .update
wget "link to latest Millhouse Build" (For example: "wget http://milhouse.openelec.tv/builds/maste...847aae.tar")
reboot

I have a Sony KDL50-w828b and with Kodi 16.0 testbuilds I played many BD3D iso movies with fullframe 3D mode ON without problem. This is the first iso I'm getting black screen.

I switch off the fullframe mode but didn't change the GUI fps. Now Kodi plays this specific 3D movie without blackscreen. Thanks for your help.
I'm having trouble to set 3d mode to "same as movie" for any of my 3d-bluray ISOs. Whenever i chose "same as movie" in the 3d mode menu while playing a movie it automatically switches back to "side by side". "MVC decoding" and "hdmi fullframe" is enabled.

Any idea how to resolve this issue, because if i'm not wrong the "side by side" mode means that i only get a 720p reslution output, right?

Edit: Just did a "tvservice -s" and got the message: state 0x12000a [HDMI CEA (32) 3D FP RGB lim 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 23.98Hz, progressive

What's wrong here?
@popcornmix:

It seems that this both settings helped a lot "config_hdmi_boost=7"; "hdmi_force_hotplug=1".
I can now start the Pi and many times the movies works at first try.
If it doesnt work I only need to restart the Pi and then it works everytime.

I will try "config_hdmi_boost=11" to see a difference.

But what exactly is "config_hdmi_boost"?

It Works like a charm thanks for your help zaRos and Jdiesel.
I have a little problème. When i watch a 3D iso blu-ray i have some green bars at the screen not all the movie but sometimes. I tried to do an mvc mkv of the same movie with makemkv and watched it. There s no more green bars.

But what exactly is "config_hdmi_boost"?

It increases the signal level of the HDMI output. Can be needed if not enough signal reaches the TV/receiver.
Might be caused by long or lossy cables. If 7 is working fine, then no need for 11.
So LiveTV question, may be Jarvis or MythTV and not PI related but...

I've noticed 2 odd things in the builds since around 10/16...

The first is that when deleting a recording which is the only one of a specific show, when it goes back to the show list the scrolling is messed up. It is like it is positioned off screen and moving up or down doesn't work as expected, I can't ever seem to get back to the top of the list and see it. If I exit out 1 level and then go back in under default, everything is fine.

The second is that sometimes after watching LiveTV, stopping and exiting back to the channel list, it starts back at the top of the channel list instead of on the channel I was on.

Has anyone else seen either behavior? I'd be glad to open a trac ticket but I was hoping to hear if anyone else is seeing similar with LiveTV in general or the MythTV plugin in particular.
