No that's fine, I thought you were reporting that the current behaviour is a problem. The problem between #0722 and #0802 is that the PVR API changed and broke most of the PVR add-ons, and pvr.vuplus wasn't fixed until #0802. So now it should be OK (fingers crossed).

Sorry, I'm from Holland and have some problems to express myself in English.
The problem I described (channel swap oke, and then buffering for several seconds) started with build 0802.
Just the VU+ (and also the IPTV simple) addons in the old form stopped working with build 0723.
So when I compare 0722 with 0802 and 0803 I see the difference in buffering that starts with 0802.

Hope it's clearer now.

Can you upload a debug log from #0803 that includes some of this buffering?

Clean install 0803, just configured VU+ addon rebooted and did some zapping.

When I zap the screen becomes black for a second with only the choosen channels osd, then suddenly it shows the last frame of the previous channel and then the playback starts.
This happens with MMAL HW but not when software decoding.

Sample off zapping with TVHeadend client:

For a longer time I wanted to ask you, if you use a case and/or some kind of active ventilation for your testing machine, and how long you play h265 1080p material?
I use the official Raspberry Pi Case (pink and white) w/o the top enclosure (because I need the pins for Hyperion) and I have fitting little copper heatsinks on each relevant chip and for real material like films I cannot use h265 playback capacities of RPi3, because after ~25 to 45 minutes the overheat-warning permanently shows up in the top right corner and RPi3 starts to thottle down.
This can NOT be reproduced by playing short hevc sequences like big bug bunny and tears of steel. So I wonder if my hardware is somewhat faulty or if it is not just me. Huh

Yes, i made a folder /storage/emulators/n64/roms and put my rom in it.

Then i added in games this location and started the rom.

After that kodi is crashing.

I think i made this path on the wrong location.

I installed the mupen64 addon and libretro dependencie configured my controller and i'm a little bit lost now.

@Pienoet have you tried asking in the Retroplayer support thread as that might be the most appropriate place to ask about Retroplayer. Don't forget to post your crashlog when posting about crashes.

I use a Flirc case (there is also a kodi branded version) that is very effective at removing heat.

You might want to try removing the case you have and aligning the PCB vertically to help with air flow.
Obviously a fan would be helpful (although not needed with a case like the flirc).

Okay thank you very much for telling me.
Just to ensure myself: So you yourself are able to playback HEVC movies ("x265 1080p") in full length w/o running into overheat troubles, right?
