However Dolby AC3 passthrough only works with OMXplayer enabled but this mess up the DTS passtrough. If OMXplay is enabled I only get a high frequent static noise (PCM32kHz according to my Sony receiver) when playing DTS files.

Not really understanding this. OMXPlayer doesn't support Hifiberry (or any ALSA device) at all.
If you enable HifiberryDigi in system/audio settings then OMXPlayer won't be used, so the OMXPlayer setting will have no effect.

Sorry I forget to mention that I use two optical inputs at the receiver. One from HifiberryDigi and one from my Philips TV.

These are the settings:
Audio output device: HDMI
Number of channels: 2
Enable passtrough: true
Passtrough output device: ALSA (Hifiberry)
Dolby Digital AC3 capable receiver: true

OMXPlayer disabled: DTS ok, AC3 not
OMXPlayer enabled: DTS static noise, AC3 OK

The splash video isn't displayed in full length at boot of my Raspberry Pi. Is the a hack to see the whole video at startup?

Yes the hack is there, but for some reason it doesn't always work for everyone. I wonder if the video player is crashing or ending early for some reason, maybe an unexpected refresh rate change (wild guess).

I think my Pi boots too fast?

Does this equate to:
HifiBerry: DTS ok, AC3 not
HDMI: DTS static noise, AC3 OK

?

Yes. More detailed if OMXplayer is disabled the receiver detects Dolby AC3 but without sound using Hifiberry.

I searched a little further:
Is this patch 218913 (thread) part of the current builds. Should AC3 work with just MMAL enabled using PI>TV>AC3 receiver and HDMI passtrough?

Kodi is supposed to wait until the video player process disappears from the process list. The video player should always start before Kodi, and the video player should disappear once the video has played out in full. If you are not seeing the whole video, then this suggests the video player process terminated (disappeared) before the end of the video. About the only other possibility, and I don't know why or how this could happen, is that Kodi is starting before the video player so that when Kodi queries if the video player is still running it sees nothing running and continues without any delay - the video player may then eventually start, and you see only the first half of the video (or something). This would actually suggest your system is booting really slowly, or in some weird order.

I'll add "ulimit -c unlimited" to kodi-splash.sh in the next build, if the video player is crashing then we should get a core dump.

Thanks

I realised I had this problem before, and found the old thread with the solution-- It was the <omxdecodestartwithvalidframe> setting. So I added it to my advancedsettings xml, but it still happens
I have still empty Libreelec repository in latest Milhouse build.
Even though I get info that there's a new oscam addon (8.0.100)
Is this expected?

Would it be possible to configure the new server to properly serve the correct content type header? This makes processing the downloads from within a browser a tat less painful since it'll allow you to open the files right away instead of having to safe them somewhere first.

Should be fixed now.

Perfect, merci!

I tested the linked file and could not reproduce it with #0430 and only MMAL enabled. Fast forward and 10sec steps worked flawless.
Question: In a lot of screens the viewtype is grayed out with "Icon Wall". Will there be more view options enabled or is this strictly a skin issue?

Somethings not right with the repository, it's being looked into.

Edit: Keep trying, it's just populated correctly for me after trying most of the day...

That would be a skin issue. Assuming you are using Estuary, you'd be better off asking in the Estuary forum:

Add a post in the "Feature Requests" thread.

I tested the linked file and could not reproduce it with #0430 and only MMAL enabled. Fast forward and 10sec steps worked flawless.

I just upgraded to the the latest, from #0420, and it still occurs for me. Do you have the MPEG2 license installed? Might have something to do with that

This is on a Pi 3

This has been happening for a while now (including on my Pi 2), at one point I had a program running to check the recording dir for completed recordings and mux them to mkv, which fixes the problem and also makes seeking much faster. Doesn't fix the problem for time shifting though!

edit: remuxing to mkv doesn't fix the problem, it just makes it less noticeable because seeking is so much faster than a ts
@popcornmix @Milhouse

I've just upgrade to 0501 and the DTS centre channel noise issue that I mentioned earlier still occurs.

http://sprunge.us/IXXV is a debug log from 0501
http://sprunge.us/OZZI is a debug log from 0421 (which sounds perfect)

Under 0501 I tried with MMAL and OMX (no difference) and for each one - Sync display on / off (no difference), Passthrough enabled on / off (no difference).

Please let me know if there are any other settings you want me to try.
