I just tested tonight's HEVC ffmpeg patch and I can confirm that it is fixed. That high bitrate Elysium file played without a single frame skip on my Pi3!

I've noticed an issue with the list of recorded TV shows. If I watch a few minutes of a show and press stop, the item disappears from the list. Group Items has to be disabled for the item to disappear. The recorded show is visible if Group Items is enabled.

I'll have to jump back through the builds to find when this first occurred and grab a log file too when it happens.

Last time I went to use my Pi it was frozen and non-responsive, so I rebooted it using the cmdline on my PC (to avoid corrupting the SD by doing a hard reset) but I got this message and it wouldn't boot.

I've just overwritten the files on the PC-accessible partition with those from #504 but I'm still getting this message. When I've had this problem in the past I've had to start from scratch and write a new image to the SD to clear the linux partition.

It seems to have done a bit more than it has in the past as it's thrown up a load of messages, the last of which is "Starting Avahi defaults" but that's been there for several minutes now so I don't think it's going to boot, so will I just have to wipe the card again?

Not really sure, that's the log message from a systemd unit that you wouldn't normally see unless the unit has failed or a prior unit has failed. Can you provide a link to [inline]journalctl -a | pastebinit[/url]. It could be you have some corrupt files or a corrupted file system in the second partition - if you are able to run fsck.ext4 on the second partition it should tell you if the file system is clean or not, and hopefully also fix any issues. 
Sorry, I missed your reply. I wouldn't have been able to "journalctl -a | pastebinit" anyway as I had no remote access when it was in this state. I believe I can access the SD card in a Linux Virtualbox to run fsck.ext4 but it's been a while since I last did that so I'll have to refresh my memory for next time. This time I ended up just formatting the 2nd partition using a Windows partitioning program and rebuilding the databases but I've made a Kodi backup now (and copied it to my PC) so it should be less painful next time. I've bought a new SD card anyway as this one does seem to corrupt a bit too easily and I've also bought a RPI 3 B+ so I'll be transferring from my RPI 2 to that soon.

When I turn off the Raspberry PI 3 model B+, the USB ports are not disabled (0530 and earlier). My external USB DAC stopped shutting down automatically. Although with 8.2.5 everything works - DAC will turn off automatically after switching off in the 8.2.5. 
But when measuring the voltage on the USB with a multimeter in the off state "0", in the switched on "+5V". Something does not allow the ports to completely shut down. On Raspberry PI 3 also works as it should.

If you do, or don't manage to claw back the extra few percent, is academic, as I would suspect, that the majority of people, using sensible bitrate files, it works admirably. :-)
Thank you. Kevin. 

Looks like it was a bug in ffmpeg 4 that stopped inline assembly from being used: http://ffmpeg.org/pipermail/ffmpeg-devel...30732.html
Hopefully will be fixed in tonight's build.   
Hi @popcornmix  & Ben,
Wow... I now see a 20 to 25% improvement in decoding efficiency for HEVC, my test file that was maxing out yesterday is now peaking at just a tad over 300% (out of 400%) or 80% per CPU (Pi3B+).
That is amazing :-) where yesterday my test file would overheat the CPU in a few minutes, today it's not quite managing to get it to 70C and even when it does, by me insulating the CPU a bit, to force it to throttle to 1200MHz, the file still plays perfectly. :-) I'm impressed. That's the highest bitrate test file that I have, I'll have to generate something even more tricky now. ;-)
Thanks to everyone for all their hard work.
Kevin.

PS. I just tried the 10bit Jelly fish files and none of them will play past the first few frames, the play bar along the bottom continues but the picture freezes, #0530.
Personally I don't use, or see any dramatic improvement for 10bit, so I wouldn't normally test it.
Regards,
Kevin.

I think I've fixed this issue. I went into the System settings > Audio and changed Resample Quality from 'GPU accelerated' to 'Low (fast).' This seems to have cured the problem, although I'm not sure why as I thought this setting only really applied to video.

Quote:BUG?: Tiny dropout at beginning of music track

On the latest nightly, I'm playing an album of FLAC-encoded music files, streamed from a NAS via ethernet. At the beginning of most (but not all) songs, there's a tiny dropout just after the track starts.

I think I've fixed this issue. I went into the System settings > Audio and changed Resample Quality from 'GPU accelerated' to 'Low (fast).' This seems to have cured the problem, although I'm not sure why as I thought this setting only really applied to video.

@quig This should be fixed by https://github.com/zach-morris/plugin.pr...rl/pull/52 . Can you update to the latest IARL? 
I am not using IARL.  I just have a folder of ROMS on my NAS.

See the "Bug reports" section in the first post, or testing note #4 also in the first post. A crash log with stacktrace is (in most cases) generated automatically following a crash.

Hmmm... another "Busy dialog" related crash.

There are more fixes under development that should address at least some of the remaining issues.

 Thanks, I upgraded to #530 and it seems to be fine now.
