I think TV usb ports provide max 500mA and to use that setting reliably you will probably need 2A. I use a Y cable with two USB ports to get 1A from the TV.
You would only need that setting to power USB peripherals such as a 2.5" hdd.

Your addons are great, they should become part of the Openelec package, under the 'expert' settings page.

Yes I know, indeed no USB hdd's in my setup, I have a NAS setup , so it is just streaming from that and the net. I am using a simple USB stick as storage though, but It seems to hold fine, just slightly underpowered apparently. I never noticed it on my Pi 1 setup, but that is probably because I have it on a 21:9 screen for which I actually use 1080p but scaled some of the top and bottom which the TV then zooms; so I never really see the top (or bottom) of the screen where that warning flashes. For testing the Pi 2 I had it on a different screen , so I noticed.

Good idea, using a Y cable, sadly my TV only has 1 USB port, but like I said it seems to run fine so I'll leave it like this for now...

cheers!

Greetings Leopold (and Leopold Fans),
I just installed my brand new RPi 2 (OpenELEC 5.0.3) and RPi Config (from your repo) and everything looks great... thanks (again)!
I do have one question...
On 1st run of the configuration program, I noticied that the new version (0.19.0) did NOT force the system to reboot... is this now the expected behaviour?
FYI, I'm using the following settings (starting off on the "conservative" side):
Preset = Turbo (force_turbo = 1), hdmi_force_hotplug = 1, disable_splash = 1
Options gpu_mem_1024 = 256 and max_usb_current = 0 (both appear with noted values as default).
Thanks.

Actually that was never intended behaviour, it's just a consequence of the default values being applied the first time the addon is run. I did start to think about ways of avoiding this but it's pretty harmless. I think this will only happen with a fresh install, nothing should have changed with this behaviour in 0.19.0

Great sets of settings for RPi, nice work!

Is it possible to set overheating temperature just to be sure, like max to 80°C???

Will be nice little temp safety!??

Add to config.txt
temp_limit=80 (A little bit of safety)

Can these be added

# Suggested change by popcornmix (OpenElec forum) some AV receivers don't like the HDMI clock change
hdmi_clock_change_limit=40

# Forces the EDID data to be read from a file rather than the monitor / TV etc.
hdmi_edid_file=1

Thanks, will give it a try

Whats your thoughts on # Suggested change by popcornmix (OpenElec forum) some AV receivers don't like the HDMI clock change
hdmi_clock_change_limit=40
As this is a value that people may have to adjust depending on the AV receiver

I'll add this one as a slider, but what should the range be? The default seems to be 85. I don't think we should have the upper value higher than that in case someone increases it by mistake and voids their warranty. How about 60-85 with an increment of 5? I'll probably add it to the overclocking category as it seems to belong there.

Do you have a problem with the under-voltage warnings that couldn't be fixed with a better power supply?
I'm not really keen on adding this one as I don't think its use should be encouraged or made too easy? Perhaps I would think differently if I was seeing the warnings myself!

Yes I've looked into this one. I'm not sure what the range or default value should be. I've seen a post from popcornmix that said 175 is the default but another said 1000. @popcornmix if you see this can you clear up my confusion?
