Since updating to the latest version (I haven't updated for a while) I now have a strange "%H" showing in my windows network. I fixed my samba.conf as advised, but it is still there, but not accessible.

Does anyone else see this?

Thanks,

How did you "fix" your samba.conf, can you post it? You should rebase your changes on the latest samba.conf.sample.

Yeah, that's what I did - copied the latest samba.conf across and changed the workgroup.

The problem seems to have sorted itself. Not sure what changed, as I rebooted several times before posting.

Thanks anyway.

Evening Milhouse,

Media Portal pvr addon is showing as incompatible on #0429 and disabling on boot, works fine though once re-enabled.
Regards

Bucky

Odd, not sure why it would be considered incompatible.

Simple IP TV is also marked as incompatible. I rolled back to #428 with which there is no problem.

I have no problem enabling the PVR IPTV Simple Client add-on in #0429, so as with the post from @bmonster this looks like a glitch or bug in the Kodi version check/add-on system as there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the various add-ons themselves (all of which have been built clean for this release, as they are every evening).

shadertoy is also failing in #429 with error "add-on couldn't be loaded. can't load shared library"

this may just be a coincidence, but thought i'd mention it

Thanks, I have uploaded new visualization.shadertoy and screensaver.shadertoy #0429 add-on zips that fix the issue with the #0429 build.

I did some quick tests with a bunch of HEVC samples to check the performance difference between LE 8.0.1 and Milhouse #0429.
#0429 seem to perform worse.
For example this sample - https://www.dropbox.com/s/obcn6jd9lv3les...2.mkv?dl=1 plays with no frame skips on 8.0.1 and I get a lot of frame skips on #0429.

RPi3, arm_freq=1280, gpu_freq=470, sdram_freq=570.

@smp1 can you test with build #0430c for RPi2 as this has the updated (and working) fix for gui removal (in all other respects it's the same as #0429). When detecting dropped/skipped frames it's best to avoid using the codec debug overlay, instead use "<loglevel>1</loglevel>" in advancedsettings.xml and the number of dropped/skipped frames will be reported at the end of playback.

See note #11 at the bottom of the first post - there's a link to a small selection of addons that I update from time to time.

Yes, that was the issue. No frame skips if I don't touch the codec debug overlay. However, in 8.0.1 it doesn't affect the performance as much as in latest Milhouse builds.

It might cause LG tvs strange behaviour in this topic: https://github.com/Pulse-Eight/libcec/issues/307

Try test build #0427l: RPi2

Same as #0427 but with PR:256 reverted.

Thanks Milhouse! I can confirm that everything is great without commit #256
It was so frustrating when this bug existed and now I'm so happy! Smile

What do you think, is it possible to left this commit out from the future builds? There is one other person who confirmed that the issue gone and some other people are still waiting for the custom OSMC build to test.
