In my eyes just a simple typo which causes random cec behavior. Is @opdenkamp available to confirm and merge this PR?

@milhouse are you able to pick this (without the previous revert).
It looks correct to me.

Is there a Plan for implement easy Setup an Adafruit OLED ,96" Display through i2c?
There is no option for setup LCDd and LCDd.conf or LCD.xml
i2cdetect dosen´t find it. No Library.
It would be so nice if there was an easy way to configure this OLED.
Maybe even in LibreELEC 8?

Thank you for your great Work.

@tjost maybe post on the LibreELEC forum as it sounds like an issue you have with LibreELEC rather than anything specific to these test builds.

This is going to be a tough problem for others to reproduce. I am not able to play music playlists using the Kodi-Alexa skill for the Amazon Echo.

Here is the playlist:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<smartplaylist type="songs">
<name>Classical</name>
<match>all</match>
<rule field="genre" operator="is">
<value>Classical</value>
</rule>
<limit>100</limit>
</smartplaylist>


This result form the Kodi logfile is this:

16:13:25.428 T:1943417488 NOTICE: VideoPlayer: Opening: special://profile/playlists/music/Classical.xsp
16:13:25.428 T:1943417488 WARNING: CDVDMessageQueue(player)::Put MSGQ_NOT_INITIALIZED

16:13:25.438 T:1943417488 ERROR: Playlist Player: skipping unplayable item: 0, path [special://profile/playlists/music/Classical.xsp]
16:13:25.446 T:1943417488 NOTICE: CVideoPlayer::CloseFile()
16:13:25.446 T:1943417488 NOTICE: VideoPlayer: waiting for threads to exit
16:13:25.446 T:1943417488 NOTICE: VideoPlayer: finished waiting
16:13:25.446 T:1943417488 NOTICE: CVideoPlayer::CloseFile()

16:13:25.446 T:1943417488 NOTICE: VideoPlayer: finished waiting

The playlist works fine run manually.

The developer of the Kodi skill suggests that a parameter in the playlist function call used in his skill may have been depreciated between Kodi 17 and 18. He uses call Player.Open with the "file" parameter set to the playlist file. Is that possible?

Just updated to this release and I can confirm that the TV will not only switch on when the Pi3 is powered but now it switches to the correct HDMI channel where the Pi3 is fitted.

It works well Smile


Many thanks.

@Vimes great, I'll continue to include the Pulse-Eight PR until it is merged by @opdenkamp.

Thanks, it works well Smile

Considering that opdenkamp has been absent since the start of April does it rely on him only to be able to merge that fix....?

No, every distro using libcec could integrate it by creating a patch for it(like Milhouse did for this version). But in general it is better if it is fixed upstream, so everyone benefits from it.

Edit: But to merge it upstream we rely on him.

Ah, thanks. Just replying and I noticed your edit. So to merge upstream would require him to do that.

Thanks for what you have done and for sharing it.

Great to have the TV switching to the correct input when the Pi powers on or when the TV is in standby and using the PI remote, which will then activate the TV.

Typically opdenkamp only responds sporadically to libcec issues.
Every few months there is a flurry of activity where issues get responded to and PRs get merged and then quiet again.

Not much can be done now except make sure there is enough evidence of the problem and the solution so it will get resolved next update.

It's up to Milhouse and LE and OSMC etc whether they carry fixes before they are merged by libcec.
