Thanks for sample. I've spend most of the day trying to reproduce it in my debug environment.
It seems you need eventlirc and an enabled lirc device.

After this I get a skipped frame every ten seconds.
Lots of digging found this dodgy code which is called from the main render thread and every ten seconds does a more expensive operation (especially if you have some input device that needs enumerating).

I'm working on a fix now (probably to move the expensive code into a low priority thread). Won't make tonight's build, but hopefully tomorrow.

That is good news. Is this issue present in all linux builds but is only noticeable on low power devices like the RPi?

All linux devices have the issue - it's not Pi specific.
It's just down to whether the change in input devices can be determined in less that one frame interval.
Slower devices (or at least platforms where enumerating devices is slow) are more likely to suffer.
The last build I have installed is 318 and was about to upgrade only to find out I cannot see the PI2 on my windows network anymore to install in update folder. Any idea why this is please? Thank you.
Restart Windows.

Tried that first no luck it seems

You can also update to latest dev by installing "devupdate" add-on from leopold repo or by ssh'ing in and changing to .update/ folder. Then run wget http://milhouse.openelec.tv/builds/maste...026734.tar (or latest url) ; reboot

Tried to find devupdate addon that works with this version of Openelec. Seems only one I found lacks dependencies.Thanks anyway.

That's great. I'm eager to test that as I had to disconnect my USB IR dongle a long time ago after realising it was causing the stutter problems I was having. I don't think my logs showed any evidence of them, so it was only after I disconnected everything in desperation that I discovered what was causing it and I've had to make do with CEC and using my TV's remote, which is a bit annoying after spending £20 on a remote which is ideal for Kodi.

To be honest it was a while before I even realised it was stuttering, as it was only really noticeable to me at certain times, maybe in the middle of a word someone was saying or the camera panning.

My brother's got the same remote and is no doubt having the same problem but he hasn't complained about it and I haven't said anything to him as he's using an old CRT TV, so doesn't have the option to use CEC but if it's fixed I'm sure he'll appreciate how much better it is without the stutter!

Sweet thanks for this. Right to Milhouse builds too!
For those who would rather get the latest version directly from the developer rather then a 3rd party add-on site.

Videos in a MP4 container dont work for me, anyone else have this issue with these latest builds?
(2016-03-22, 18:43)popcornmix Wrote: What do you have "When the TV is switched off" set to? I believe the default is ignore, but setting it to shutdown would produce the behaviour you describe.

It was set to "suspend". I hadn't touched it so this would be the default I believe. Switching it to ignore seem to have solved the issue. I'd think this would be a bug if it didn't happen in OE6 (right?).

I'll try it on the other TV and report back.

Thanks!
