v17 LibreELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 17.0)
So I've been experimenting with ways to get the ticker on news stations like CNN to be "less stuttery" or "stutter free". I wanted to experiment with passthrough since my TV provider uses 1080i60 mpeg2. With "adjust display refresh rate" set to always, "sync playback to display" set to disabled and passthrough set to enabled, this worked quite well. Unfortunately while watching a recorded program and attempting to skip 60 seconds ahead I appear to have crashed the kodi.bin executable because it ran my PI3 out of memory:

[ 141.098732] Out of memory: Kill process 400 (kodi.bin) score 883 or sacrifice child
[ 141.098852] Killed process 400 (kodi.bin) total-vm:1171084kB, anon-rss:625456kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:0kB
[ 141.214938] oom_reaper: reaped process 400 (kodi.bin), now anon-rss:0kB, file-rss:0kB, shmem-rss:0kB
[ 141.392489] vchiq: 0: ignoring ERROR from callback to service d00c

I was using 0824 last night when that happened. Turning off passthrough and leaving "sync playback to display" set to disabled seems to still have the desired effect of a relatively stutter free news ticker but without the out of memory crash when skipping. I'd still like to try using passthrough but not if it will cause kodi to run the PI out of memory.
