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?

I don't use Flirc case, but a plastic one with rather large heatsink and opening in the case over the proc.

My Pi3 is slightly overclocked (1250), and I can play 1080p 10bit HEVC for the length of the movie (The Revenant 2h 30min) at room temp around 22-24°C, without overheat warning.

It greatly depends on luck, how "good" silicon you get. My is obviously pretty good...

Well, in my experience (over)heating while watching HEVC stuff also depends on the content itself - scenes with lots of movement obviosuly will give more work to the cpu and thus more heat.

Not sure I've seen that crash before, probably one for @peak3d.

Hallo Milhouse,

just wanted to report - issue still exists:

http:/sprunge.us/DXDh

Kodi restarts after playing "StarTrek Beyond" with "AmazonPrime Instant Video"-addon from post #1 and switching to some stuff like "Big Bang Theory" without stopping the videostream manually.
Same with AmazonPrime VOD - addon (0.3.7).

How can I report this to peak3d directly?

regards,

Andy

Nope I have the same issues with my rpi3 and the official kodi case as well.

Edit: 480p works perfect, 720p unfortunately I get the stuttering - is there anything I could do? Same issues on Netflix - example: Brooklyn ninety-nine

Hi,

I currently use this case and it works great!
But I have used other thermal paste(Noctua NT-H1) and the PCB is slightly underbuilt for some pressure ^^

You can reinforce the fact you're being affected, but someone must to fix it.

I asked one of the kodi devs "you've PR-ed to iptv simple recently - do you know if it should work following PR:12550?"
and got response "not yet. but we're working on it."

Someone worked? The bug was closed and the PR is https://github.com/kodi-pvr/pvr.iptvsimple/pull/144

Can this be merged in next nighly?

Does someone here know, why when using libreelec leia testbuilds the picture grabbed by my usb video grabber (V4L2 sent to /dev/video0, for Hyperion) is *extreme* dark?
I hope this question is not too special, but this is definately testbuild and/or kodi 18 related, because I have this behaviour only with fresh installed libreelec testbuilds plus Hyperion and not with fresh installed latest stable official libreelec release plus Hyperion.

Of course I asked in the Hyperion forums as well, but from my experience this thread here is much more frequently answered. Smile

If you are hitting temperature throttling then you are going to be better off reducing overclock.
Stock arm_freq=1200 is faster than throttled arm_freq=1350 (which will actually be 600MHz).

The main contributor to heat is over_voltage. Try edging that down.
Next is arm_freq. Back that off a bit.
v3d_freq/core_freq will have less effect.
Leave sdram_freq on highest that works - that has a good effect on software decode performance and won't affect temperature noticeably.
