Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server

It seems we got an issue with service addons - will investigate.

you can fix the black screen by installing service.xbmc.versioncheck from https://github.com/XBMC-Addons/service.x...ree/master
at least this solved it for me

Yeah - and that should not be needed and I want to know why.

second codec info show 80 skip / 2 drop

fyi: it is my own build based on yours from 22 feb with fix for my edid problem and allow passthrough even on realtime streams.

This shows (and you've mentioned) that you're outputting interlaced mode to the TV. You don't want to do this. Since your TV accepts 1080p input, you want to send it 1080p. What you are doing now is taking interlaced source material, deinterlacing it to progressive, then converting back to interlaced before sending it to the TV. Or with progressive source material, you're just destroying it by converting it to interlaced before sending to the tv.

It might be even worse ... as kodi cannot output interlaced ... it's all done "somewhere" ...

sadly my tv is only able to do 1080i :-(

I will play with this. Does the script get wiped out when I do a firmware/software update?

Matt,

I loaded the latest Milhouse KODI 17 build (#0226, 26-Feb-2016) and have found that no delay whatsoever is required to make the NAS SMB shares visible. I did notice, however that the OpenELEC settings menu is missing from the SYSTEM top level menu. Is this a permanent condition in consideration that this is test software?

I'd have to guess it's an issue with you having upgraded from a 6.0 build, assuming you didn't do a clean install or reset afterwards. But since I haven't tried it myself I can only guess.

I guess that it is a non-issue for now. It's too early to speculate how the official KODI 17 releases will act.

FYI - Several other people over on the OpenELEC forum have reported what appears to be the same 6.0.x missing SMB share problem that I encountered. I originally posted my problem over there, but got no response.

I don't remember having the missing share issue with 5.x builds.

I'm unfortunately not able to reproduce the issue here, as I'm running my OE7 build on my main box currently, with a shared mysql db and smb shares all located on my NAS, which is mapped via IP, not name. I have a new dev box arriving later today, will try to reproduce with 6.02+

edit: just did a clean install of 6.0.398, with a single mapped SMB share for movies (added via Kodi dialog, browsing the network shares). Rebooted, played a movie, no issues. Didn't even need to use the 'wait for network' setting.

Images updated. Should work now ™. Still on kernel 4.4 as connman has compile issues against 4.5-rc6.

I just tried the http://fritsch.fruehberger.net/openelec/...aaae43.tar build. Stil just black screen and pointer.

Uploading new build ... this service.xbmc.versioncheck seems very stubborn :-)

Hmh, HD ready? If so, set video output to 720p instead of 1080i and everything else according to the instructions in thread #1. You might have to calibrate the sceen, but should solve your issues. Alternatively, exchange your HD ready TV for a used Full HD one instead. That's what I did. One of my better decisions.

All good. No more black screen. Thanks Smile Will do some soundchecks now to see if passthrough audio works on my miniDP1.2->HDMI 2.0 adapter again Smile

EDIT: Still no go on passthrough audio when using the adapter. No biggie. The new skin takes some getting used to Smile
