Simple iptv client does not work anymore.

Is there an alternative to simple iptv client in which I can use m3u, epg-xml and chanel logos of local.

I would suggest you stick with a build from before all the PVR breakage, until the fixes are in (no ETA on that, btw).

@Malocher yes, it's caused by PR12548 in #0724 using invalid SQL. The developer has been notified.

Is it possible tp play HEVC 1080p on a raspberry pi2 with this builds?

I overclocked my pi2 but it plays about couple of minutes and the my pi2 locked up.

It might be overheating. If you could kindly provide a little more information on your overclock settings, what case or heat sink you are using and the bit rate of the HEVC film you were trying to watch. Then I am sure some of the more experienced members of this forum would be able to assist you.

On #724 the Refresh button in the VideoInfo window no longer exists.
It isn't there at all on Estuary and is greyed out in Confluence and derivatives.
This wasn't mentioned in the 'Changes to the skinning engine for Kodi Leia' thread
https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=298565
Since I don't normally use Estuary, it may have gone missing ages ago.
I can't say for certain that #724 is the first build with this situation in Confluence, but I do use the button
quite a bit, so I would think I'd have noticed.
Any ideas?

No one else seeing this?
Should I post in some other forum? It does appear to be LE 18 related,

Hmm. As of #728, this problem has gone away!
I haven't tested on all intermediate builds, but definitely OK now.

Thank you for response.

I´m trying to play a 8 bit hevc file with these overclock settings

Code:
gpu_mem_1024=256
arm_freq=1075
core_freq=530
sdram_freq=600
sdram_schmoo=0x02000020
dtoverlay=sdhost,overclock_50=100
gpu_freq=510
over_voltage_sdram=6
over_voltage=8
force_turbo=1

And i´m using this case

Have you confirmed your overclock is 100% stable? Judging from the crashes, it probably isn't.

I also don't think you need core_freq AND gpu_freq - gpu_freq will configure the core_freq.

You can use "bcmstat.sh xgpd1" (built-in to these builds, and needs a wide ssh console window!) to monitor temperature, core frequencies and cpu load in real time. This will also confirm what ARM/Core/H264/SDRAM frequencies are being successfully configured from config.txt.

If your temperature is not excessive - the RPi2 CPU will begin to throttle at 80C and cap the ARM frequency at 85C - then it's unlikely to be a temperature issue. Rather, you simply didn't win in the silicon lottery and need to wind back your overclock.

Note that bcmstat.sh will report under-voltage, frequency cap and throttle events in the U, F and T columns. A lower-case value (eg. "u") indicates an event has occurred one or more times in the past since the system booted, while an uppercase value (eg. "U") means the event is ongoing (ie. happening right now). A blank value in the U/F/T columns indicates no event has so far occurred since the system booted.

Thank you for this great info.

I will remove core_freq and gpu_freq form my settings.
I allready reduce the arm_freq to from 1100 to 1075 and set the sdram_freq to 600 and it´s much better now.

The temperature is good it wasn't getting higher then 66 celsius while playing a 8-bit HEVC file.

I will try bcmstat to monitor the core frequencies and cpu load etc.

Thanks again for info!

I would say you really need a pi3 to play 1080p HEVC.
The arm has double width NEON compared to Pi2, as well as being clocked faster.
It does make a noticeable difference.

Thank you popcornmix i will buy a pi3 then.

Does a pi3 need to overclock to play HEVC 1080p and 720p netflix?
