Hi, with 813 Amazon vod on my Pi3 flickers when watching a film e.g. The infiltrator.
It works fine with 810.

When i remember it correctly, 808 worked fine too and 809 had this flicker issue too.

Regards
Chris

I could only find a movie called "Infiltrators" on Amazon (Prime Instant addon), which interestingly plays back at 1920x1080 (with either omx or mmal), so not encrypted.

Can you provide a debug log (wiki) while playing "The Infiltrator" in #0813?

Is this flickering occurring all of the time, or only occasionally?

I briefly tested a few movies (The Girl on the Train, Bad Moms, San Andreas) and also TV shows but didn't see any problem, so it might be due to a setting, or the particular stream. These are my settings:

Hmmm so kodi freezes with #0505 too? Can you provide a debug log (wiki) from #0505 (or #0813). Is it only Kodi that is frozen, so the network is still working? What are you using to stream over your network, smb:// or nfs:// etc.?

I found the movie "Infiltrator" on Amazon and could play it with RPi3 and #0813 + #0814 builds, no flickering or stutter or similar.
Only so for comparison whether this is only a single case.

[ 2x RPi2, 2x RPi3 ]
[ LE Testbuilds for RaspberryPi (Kodi 18.0) ]
[ Marantz NR1506 ]
[ Panasonic TX-50EXW784 ]
[ NAS @ OMV 3.0.8x (Erasmus) on Banana Pi ]
[ ODROID C2 + wrxtasy's LE 8.0 ]

Hey guys, can anyone offer a strategy on managing nightly builds, I'm kind of new to this. Do you have two RPI's going and alternate in case the latest update breaks something? Or do you just roll back the changes to the last working build? If the latter, whats the best way to accomplish this without losing your settings & library?

So long as you have ssh or Samba enabled, and the device is booting, you can roll back to an earlier build by copying the older (working) tar file into "/storage/.update" (ssh) or the "Update" Samba folder, and rebooting. If the Kodi GUI is working you should also be able to roll back from within Kodi (see note #7 in the first post).

In general, rolling back should not lose your settings and library although it is possible that you may roll back to an older database version in which case you will be missing recent library additions. In addition, there has been a lot of change to the Settings system in the last couple of months and if you roll back far enough you will lose settings as the guisettings.xml in current builds is not compatible with builds older than early July, in which case your settings will revert to default (old settings will be upgraded to the new settings format, but settings in the new format will not be downgraded to the old format).

If the device no longer boots then you can recover it by mounting the SD card in a PC and extracting the last working firmware, KERNEL and SYSTEM from the tar file. This is pretty rare though, as all builds are at least boot tested before publication - no boot, no publish.

Noticed a couple of bugs:

1) A weird bug with TV channel switching. If you switch to a file playback when watching a live TV and then try to switch back to a TV channel that you were watching before switching to a file - nothing happens. However, if you try to switch to a different TV channel - it works as expected.

2) Some settings like "Audio offset" are not saving.
