OpenELEC 4.2 Beta 5 released

28 Aug 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.1.5.

The OpenELEC 4.1 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.2.
OpenELEC-4.2 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.0.

This release includes some bugfixes, security fixes and improvements since OpenELEC-4.1.4. Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC to XBMC Gotham 13.2 final, FFmpeg to ffmpeg-2.3.3, Mesa to Mesa-10.3-rc1and systemd to systemd-216. We fixed crashes while playing FLAC files with ID3v2 tags, optimized some software packages and updated the RaspberryPi firmware to include the last fixes and features.

RaspberryPi Users:
This build includes a new MMC/SDCard driver, which is now enabled by default.
This is now the default sdcard driver. It should avoid some of the issues of the old driver, like polling with interrupts disabled, and could improve performance and avoid interfering with other drivers (e.g. USB or LIRC).
You can disable the new driver with adding bcm2708.bcm2835_mmc=0 to cmdline.txt. Please report any issues with this driver in our forums. To edit your cmdline.txt run the following commands and reboot after the change:

mount -o remount,rw /flash
nano /flash/cmdline.txt

 

Since OpenELEC 4.0 we have some parts of the underlying OS reworked. OpenELEC 4.1/4.2 is now based on Kernel linux-3.16, Mesa-10.3 and Xorg-1.16. We updated the Nvidia Graphic drivers in the 64-bit image to 340.x (32-bit remains on 304.123), Systemd to systemd-215, our Connectionmanager to connman-1.24 and XBMC to XBMC Gotham 13.2. We switched our libc from eglibc to glibc. We added support for nss-mdns, support to perform filesystem checks on every boot for our both default system partitions and ffmpeg-2.3 to our x86 builds. With switching to ffmpeg-2.3 on our x86 builds we now support h265(HEVC)

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-4.0 to OpenELEC 4.1.1 for testing purposes. If you are going to update to one of our beta releases, we STRONGLY advise that you make a backup of your XBMC data.

But this is not an openelec problem. Your VDR server needs a newer vnsi plugin.

Is there any reason why this feature got disabled? I used to boot my openelec pc with this option and now i´m unable to start the box.
do i have to switch to iscsi, nfs? what´s the best alternative to boot my openelec media box from network?

there are some issues with booting from samba/cifs, at least if you use /storage from smb server. thats why we removed this. i recommend nfs for example.

Put the SD-Card into another Linux system and do the fsck there. If this doesn't help then you have SD card corruption as many RPI users before you, and you have to start from scratch.

I've update to the this new release and run the commands to use the new MMC/SDCard driver, but something went wrong and openelec doesn't work anymore.
When I boot RPI I get this message

*** Error in check_disks: could not repair filesystem, dropping to debug shell, try to run 'fsck' manually: ***
### Starting debugging shell... type exit to quit ###
sh: can't access tty: job control turned off

Can it be solved without a new install?

I agreed that colors seem more saturated or strong : i dont know the english correct word.

I needed to decrease my color setting on my tv to find a more natural image : but the image is now perfect and seems better than the previous version.

Hello,

I have a similar issue with samba and network at startup with my asrock ion330 (Generic build - x86_64) at startup with version 4.2.x. (works fine with previous versions)
Network is not intialized properly at startup but works fine if I starts it using OpenELEC addon. (DHCP IPv4)
I have tried to disable samba and to increase boot/network delay using OpenELEC addon but same problem occurs.

What I have seen :
- in var/cache, resolv.conf is only created when network is started manually.
- in /var/tmp/systemd, an empty 'coredump' directory is created. (generated at startup - no core dump file inside)
- in /var a 'cores' directory is created with two smbd and nmbd empty directories. (at startup too)
smbd daemon is started properly. (log.smbd)
nmbd daemon only really starts when network is initialized manually, please see log file :

I use two SD-cards with my RPi: one for the main-usage with Openelec 3.2 and the second for testing new versions. I found that version 4.1.3 is working good with my device, so today I updated the main-version to 4.1.3. As expected everything works fine. The problem: In the test-version I found the scripts for htop and mc and could install and use these addons. In the main-version - now the same version - I do not find those scripts. Why? Did I miss something? Is the addon-source wrong?

"it depends" .. if the OP is trying to wake a wireless device via WOL it cannot be done. If the OP is trying to wake an ethernet device from a wireless device it should be fine as long as the router/bridge between wireless and fixed segments of the network passes the magic packet. Most kit does but as always there will be exceptions to the rule to defeat people. Clear as mud.. like most things wireless :whistle:

Coming from 4.1.2 (4.1.3 didn't work for me. liveTV crashed).

With 4.1.4 I am often experiencing in PVR slow menu actions and slow channel changes.
I am using a Intel NUC DN28020FYKH with tvheadend on a seperate PC.

I have several logs where that can be seen. The logs are with the pvr.tvh the delays are most prominent here. I have also had dealys with pvr.hts.

Attached an example 004.xbmc.old.log
Look for this channel change
19:36:14 T:139952999704384 DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 290952:160 0 KEY_OK devinput (KEY_OK)
....

....
19:36:22 T:139952999704384 OK UP
What delayed the process by 6 seconds?

Another example 003.xbmc.old.log
Look for:
18:59:40 T:140407187662592 DEBUG: CPVRChannelGroup - Persist - persisting channel group 'Alle Radio-Kanäle' with 228 channels
18:59:56 T:140407500384064 DEBUG: CGUIMediaWindow::GetDirectory (pvr://channels/radio/Alle Radio-Kanäle/)
16 seconds delay.

And further, a channel cahnge:
19:01:28 T:140407500384064 DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 1854602:192 0 KEY_CHANNELUP_UP devinput (KEY_CHANNELUP_UP)
19:01:36 T:140407221139200 DEBUG: PVRManager - PerformChannelSwitch - switching to channel '3sat HD'
Quite a delay between key press and channel switch.

19:01:36 T:140407500384064 DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 1862293:192 0 KEY_CHANNELUP_UP devinput (KEY_CHANNELUP_UP)
19:01:49 T:140407221139200 DEBUG: PVRManager - PerformChannelSwitch - switching to channel 'SAT.1'

There are more long channel switches following.
A quick switch is here:
19:02:13 T:140407500384064 DEBUG: LIRC: Update - NEW at 1898953:192 0 KEY_CHANNELUP devinput (KEY_CHANNELUP)
19:02:13 T:140407221139200 DEBUG: PVRManager - PerformChannelSwitch - switching to channel 'RTL Television'

Hello!

First of all.... Thanks for all the hard work you doing
Great job !!

Upgraded to 4.1.4 on raspberry yesterday
Using LiveTV my vdr server log complains about wrong protocol version 6
4.0.7 uses vdr-vnsi protocol 5 --> switched back to 4.0.7 everythings OK

also upgraded to xbmc 13.2 final on mac --> everythings working there

Guess I wait for the final Openelec 4.2 for raspberry and give it another try

OpenELEC 4.2 Beta 3 released

07 Aug 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.1.3.

The OpenELEC 4.1 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.2.
OpenELEC-4.2 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.0.

This release includes some bugfixes, security fixes and improvements since OpenELEC-4.1.2. Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC to XBMC Gotham 13.2 beta 3, FFmpeg to ffmpeg-2.3.1, kernel to linux-3.16 and Mesa to Mesa 10.2.5 . We updated the RaspberryPi firmware to include the last fixes and features.

Since OpenELEC 4.0 we have some parts of the underlying OS reworked. OpenELEC 4.1/4.2 is now based on Kernel linux-3.16, Mesa-10.2 and Xorg-1.16. We updated the Nvidia Graphic drivers in the 64-bit image to 340.x (32-bit remains on 304.123), Systemd to systemd-215, our Connectionmanager to connman-1.24 and XBMC to XBMC Gotham 13.2. We switched our libc from eglibc to glibc. We added support for nss-mdns, support to perform filesystem checks on every boot for our both default system partitions and ffmpeg-2.3 to our x86 builds. With switching to ffmpeg-2.3 on our x86 builds we now support h265(HEVC)

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-4.0 to OpenELEC 4.1.1 for testing purposes. If you are going to update to one of our beta releases, we STRONGLY advise that you make a backup of your XBMC data.

Hello all,

my remote is still not working with 4.1.3. At 4.0.6 everything works like a charme. But buttons like "v","s","space",.... are not recognized with this version anymore :(
I'm using an Onky remote with ir-keytable. Only "Enter", "up", "Down", "left", "right" is working with 4.1.3.

Here are two log I made.

4.0.6. log - everything works perfect:

Worth checking anyway. Just leave it running memtest overnight.

Many many people run openelec without these reboots. Either there is a hardware fault, or your installation is royally screwed for some reason.

Start with memtest, it's the easiest option.

Hardware faults are a matter of elimination.

Do you think that with Xubuntu memory fixes it self but with OpenElec no? :) Bad memory is VERY rare thing and it's not even worth to test. This is 100% bug of software but dont know or XBMC or OpenElec.
Thanks for log files via samba shares, will look when get home.

Maybe someone knows how to increase remote responsive time? With Xubuntu it works VERY fast..real time, no delay, with OpenElec it's slow. Maybe because of keys OpenElec rewrites/remaps keys. But sometimes i have to wait 10secs (cpu usage wont go more than 3%) to get response...most of the time it's about 0.3s delay.

Where could i look why device restarted? in xbmc.log there is no usefull info..it restarts very fast i gues it never have a chance to log the reason. maybe OpenElec have it's own log?

I have the problem that OpenELEC 4.2 Beta 3 restarts from time to time. I have the same problem with the 4.2 Beta 2 and the OpenELEC Stable - Generic x86_64 4.0.7.
This happens only when i am looking an MKV-Video. It never happend with an MP4 Video.
I am using the Intel NUC Kit D34010WYK with the Synology NAS DS114 for Media Streaming.

Here are the xbmc.old.log file that was created after the last restart from OpenELEC:

dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90809937/xbmc.old.log

My Video Settings:
dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90809937/screenshot000.jpg

Edit:
After some hints from the forum on xbmcnerds.com i changed the settings:
db.tt/IOjwF6WQ

The old setting doesn't work right on Intel systems.

I noticed the same on 4.1.2 (4.2beta2).

Screen goes black and basically nothing happens. Press stop and we are back to the menu.

Backend is mythtv 0.27.

cmyth client is 1.9.16.

I start to play a Live TV channel here:

My remote using ir-keytable is not working properly with this release. Last working release for me was 4.0.6. What has changed since then, or what can I do? My own keyboard.xml is not recognized anymore - no matter, what I change. With 4.0.6 I had absolutely no issues - everything worked liked a charme.
Please help.

Beta 4.1.3 doesn't work with tvheadend for me. Coming from 4.1.2 where everything worked very well, no issues.
After starting xbmc tried to connect and loads data and then just before the video is displayed xbmc crashes and starts again.. tvheadend is running on an external machine. I tried both tvheadend clients. device is Intel NUC DN2820FYKH (Bay Trail) booting from USB stick.
Log is attached.

OpenELEC 4.2 Beta 2 released

23 Jul 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.1.2.

The OpenELEC 4.1 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.2.
OpenELEC-4.2 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.0.

This release includes some bugfixes, security fixes and improvements since OpenELEC-4.1.1. Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC to XBMC Gotham 13.2 beta 2, FFmpeg to ffmpeg-2.3, kernel to linux-3.15.6, Mesa to Mesa 10.2.4 and Xorg to the final version of xorg-server-1.16.0. We updated the RaspberryPi firmware to include the last fixes and features and fixed some issues with not starting XBMC/Xorg on some AMD hardware.

Since OpenELEC 4.0 we have some parts of the underlying OS reworked. OpenELEC 4.1/4.2 is now based on Kernel linux-3.15, Mesa-10.2 and Xorg-1.16. We updated the Nvidia Graphic drivers in the 64-bit image to 340.x (32-bit remains on 304.123), Systemd to systemd-215, our Connectionmanager to connman-1.24 and XBMC to XBMC Gotham 13.2. We switched our libc from eglibc to glibc. We added support for nss-mdns, support to perform filesystem checks on every boot for our both default system partitions and ffmpeg-2.3 to our x86 builds. With switching to ffmpeg-2.3 on our x86 builds we now support h265(HEVC)

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-4.0 to OpenELEC 4.1.1 for testing purposes. If you are going to update to one of our beta releases, we STRONGLY advise that you make a backup of your XBMC data.

This same problem i have on ZOTAC ID42 and PS3 Remote with bluetooth on miniPCIE with WIFI
If i only touch my remote then system immediate freeze complety. Just reboot help :(

I remeber im always use snaphot build (nightly) and after 20 may this start happens :( i dont know if that happens changes of kernel or something else.

If some one tell me how to deeply debug then i can delivery logs (because normal logs from dmesg or xbmc.log nothing show, system just freez )

UPDATE: for openelec TEAM
- im compiled latest version of openelec from git (master) and just donwgrade kernel to 3.14.4 and remote working !!!!!!!! :) no freez system anymore !
so this must be kernel issue or something in config of kernel

Few problems:

With this version NTFS partitions is not mounted. USB flash is ok but i have internal sata disk and only FAT32 partition is shown. I formated NTFS to EXT4 and it now shown. This wasnt happening in stable version. Stable version sometimes reboots itself. This one so far good, but tested only 5 hours.

ALSO: why CPU temp is in F ? not in C ? Im not american and i dont use Fahrenheit. Would be nice to have temp in Celsius :)

Other than thats, seems to be all good. THANKS>

If your OpenELEC is set to DHCP, try setting the IP as manual. My Zotac will not connect to the network set to DHCP unless I manually go into the OpenELEC settings app and click on connect as of beta 1. If I set my IP manually, all is well.

I asked in the beta 1 release thread and also here and got no answer. Is ALSA fixed? It was fixed in 4.0.7 then broken in 4.2 beta 1 so I went back to 4.0.7. It would be nice to know before I go messing around upgrading then downgrading.

If you have access to a linux machine you may be able to repair the sdcard with fsck.

It's pretty easy to backup a working sdcard, with dd on linux, or win32diskimager on windows.
Then if something does go wrong you can be back up and running in minutes.

This release includes some bugfixes, security fixes and improvements since OpenELEC-4.0.6 . Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we fixed some security issues found the last days/weeks, fixed the issue with low volume on some systems after the alsa update in 4.0.6, updated Kernel to 3.14.11 and updated the RaspberryPi firmware to include the last fixes and features.

OpenELEC-4.0.7 is now the next stable release, which is a bugfix and securityfix release of the OpenELEC-4.0 series.

Hello everyone

I am having trouble with video playback on 4.0.7. The playback sounds like mono and is very quiet. In some cases the playback causes some artifacts (noise).
There is no problem with live-tv (tvheadend) nor mp3.

I tested all videos on Windows (dual boot on same machine) and there everything is fine.

Anyone else having this problem? Files are mostly AC3 encoded.

Hardware: AMD Richland with Asus Essence Stx sound card.

If I mark the mentioned option, I get a message that the CEC configuration has been updated, then I lose the connection with the original TV controller. After a reboot by using Yatse ( I use my smartphone then ) the language and timezone have been changed again and the option in the CEC configuration is undone. With previous Openelec versions this didn't occur.

Edit: It seemed to be solved after testing reboot with and without clearing cache, so something in the settings must been triggered or changed by selecting the option of the TV language (it's still unmarked yet)

Thank You, I will take a look at that. Meanwhile I found out, that at first I did a restart after a clean up of the cache, which resulted in this language and timezone change, later I did a restart without cleaning up the cache and nothing has been changed.
I will report later the result of your advice

Look in settings/system/input/peripherals/CEC adapter.

You may have "use TV language as default" enabled.

No sound after resume with 4.0.7. Hardware Zotac ID33 and Onkyo TX-NR818. With 4.0.3 and older sound was OK most of the times after resume, failing only now and then.

Is there a good guide somewhere for idiot like me that tells how to fix this? I found this though...: gist.github.com/nmunson/5743582

You should use the normal way to access library movies and "mount" it in XBMC via a share : SMB, etc....

It was my fault. Nothing to do with 4.0.7. My media Source was using FTP and this was the root cause. I did Change to SMB and now everthing works fine, also with 4.0.7. Best regards

Do you have an intel NUC ? or an intel GPU ?

It seems that OpenElec 4.0.7 includes new intel driver if I correctly read the change log :
"update to libva-intel-driver-1.3.2"

A little update: i reverted back to 4.0.6 and now my dvblink client is working as before, no problems at all. So there is definitely someting wrong in 4.0.7. Hope anyone from the development team picks this up.

Hi Folks,
I just reverted back on my RPi to 4.0.6. because files (on my synology NAS) with german special charactes (Umlaut üaöß) were not shown at all, neither in the files section, not in the titles section of movies. Now with 4.0.6. it works again perfectly.
Maybe something to consider for 4.0.8. Best regards from Munich

Bug 2 lightpacks not solved in Version 4.05 and 4.06 + 4.06 :huh:

I have a problem with version 4.07 that 1 of my 2 lightpacks stay on when i shut down Openelec.
Back to 4.04 problem is not there.
Anyone can confirm this problem?
Something changed with lsusb in the versions after 4.04.... :sick:
Pls help or fix because i cannot upgrade to newer version then 4.04

p.s. The lightpack that stays on uses a USB splitter shared with CEC adapter
Problem solved

- 2 lightpacks on the same splitter
- CEC adapter in single USB port

Changed with lsusb -d 1d50:6022 the bus en device id's for my boblight.config
Lights where fck*p after that (some off, some on with different colors)
but powersupply off for few minuts and startup openelec everything is ok:)

Happy now ;)

Ok could be. Whenever I try to repro to grab a log file I can't.

My problem occurs when I launch a video via Yatze library and it started when I updated to 4.0.6. from 4.0.5.
The video starts playing on top of xbmc home screen (semi translarent) for a few second then freezes and becomes unresponsive. Audio goes on, although laggy.
First time I tried same thing happened 2x in a row (second time after I rebooted). But when I navigated to video on xbmc with remote, it started playing flawlessly.

Hope this helps.

I already posted this once but here it is again....

bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=78960

Assuming this is your issue which is a common problem and has been for a bit of time you are stuck until Intel fixes the issue but if you have enough horsepower you can disable hardware acceleration and things should run fine.

Just remember to enable Passthrough in XBMC settings under Audio. Select your receiver as the passthrough device, and tick the DTS-MA and TrueHD options below. Done.

thanks a lot, it worked like a charm. the first time i tried 4.x version i did not know i have to enable advanced mode in order to see the rest of the settings.

Like you say, it's likely an XBMC issue not OE.

Any idea where to start looking, other than creating a thread on the XBMC forum?

Is there a specific error message in a particular log file that would tell me which NFOs weren't reading properly, or why?

I believe that all of the NFOs that are effected were manually written for content that wouldn't exist in a scrapper. Such as DVD extras.

Has anybody else had problems with .NFO files not reading properly?

Not seen any crashes, but I noticed on 4.0.2 that .nfo files (containing only the IMDB URL) sometimes failed to be read with the log message "No information found for item".
Fixed by deleting the .nfo file which forces the universal scraper to use the folder or file name instead.

At the time I thought there might be a temporary network issue connecting to imdb.com.

Like you say, it's likely an XBMC issue not OE.
I've not updated OE on this machine yet because it works well otherwise.

closing the ticket because this is a bug/development issue tracker, support is provided via the forums

- Createlog say log-2014-06-23-18.38.26.zip, but we have 20:38
- Starting with LiveTV seems to work not like in 3.0
There i have to Activate Startup Windows to TV, but this Setting doesn't work on OE 4.0
Today i found another Setting acting similar like the old one: LiveTV Settings, Playback, Continue Last Channel on startup -> Yes.
Two Questions:
1. What Function does this Setting have for TV? abload.de/img/screenshot000xojpl.png
2. When i set this to Minimized abload.de/img/screenshot001y7j0b.png, then i have a Full LiveTV Screen in the Background
of the Home Window. Is this a Bug or is this acting like you wanted?

I have a new problem. When I start OE 4.0.5 and Live-TV (TVHeadend) and switch to next channel, after the 4th or 5th channel-schwitch I get the error message "TVheadend HTSP Client - no access".

I recognized that problem with 4.0.5, but going back to 4.0.3 and 4.0.0 now shows the same result. Never had that with 3.2.4. Is that only me ?


Problem Gelöst ! Es saß zwischen den Kopfhörern ! Sorry !!

So this one, seems to be resolved:

Hello, I did a fresh 4.0.5 usb install everything installs well, the repos are downloading, but none of the add ons inside of the repos are downloading they just hang at 95 percent 0 percent.

even the add ons that are stocked/ loaded when you install xbmc aren't able to install

Is anyone else having these issues? it can't just be me because I tried it with different computers and different usb so the problem has to be in 4.0.5 release on the 1st gen apple tv.

@stasik: enable advanced settings mode (bottom left of the XBMC settings app) and then enable passthrough .. is probably the solution you're looking for

hi. i am glad to see the new releases released so often now. my system is an ion2 intel, and i was using the ion version of the distro, which was merged into generic version now. but the reason i got my device is the ability to decode dts hd master and true hd. so i tried and installed the 4.x version, but it can not bitstream hd audio formats anymore, not even plain dts. so i had to downgrade back to version 3. was i doing something wrong or the version 4 does not support bitstreaming on ion2 gpu?
thanks

Hello guys. First of all thank you for openelec. Now as for version 4.0.5 I have a problem with playing files over samba. Many won't start and when they do there is too much pausing and stattering. I have no idea why! I really want to use Gotham xbmc!
Still using version 3.2.4 free of any bugs!!

OpenELEC 4.0.4 released

04 Jun 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.0.4.


This release includes some bugfixes, security fixes and improvements since OpenELEC-4.0.3 . Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC with the last fixes to XBMC 13.1 (final) which contains a lot of fixes for issues found after the XBMC-13.0 release (some of them we already shipped with OpenELEC-4.0.0).
We found and fixed with the help of 'popcornmix' some RaspberryPi related issues in kernel, firmware and XBMC code. Many thanks to him for the help!

OpenELEC-4.0.4 is now the next stable release, which is a bugfix and securityfix release of the OpenELEC-4.0 series.

Hi,
I'm facing an issue since the first final 4.x-versions.

After starting OE/XBMC, there's no sound. I have to go to settings menu, select another sound-source (e.g. SPDIF) and then revert back to my original sound-source (generic HD audio).
Even the setting "keep sound-output always active" has no effect.

After the above mentioned "workaround" everything works fine then.

Any idea, how to solve this?
It's an Asus E45M1-I DELUXE Board.
Connected via HDMI to my Receiver.

Previous Versions were absolutely fine (3.95x also).

Please find the log-file attached

Ok, found out some things about the latest version of AirPlay and iTunes.

It does work with 4.0.4 and 11.2.2.
Go into the AirPlay setting on your iTunes, you will see a SINGLE and MULTIPLE

Select Multiple and you will see volume sliders. Turn up the audio on the Unit your wanting to hear the audio from.

In my case I've got audio for my OS X Maverick's unit, my RaspBMC PI, and OpenElec PI up and working at the moment.

Certainly wish that the audio player in BMC allowed you to change it. Or I have missed how to do this. As many times audio will start off at a poor level and I'd love to turn it up.

Still have the issues which were detected in previous releases (Intel haswell).
1. when stop a video playback, XBMC freezes
2. the wifi (USB stick) connects to the network only manually. The set up is correct and it is including the connect automatically settings.

cheers

I have the same random freeze when a video playback stops (manually or at the end of the video). Running on Intel Haswell G3220 and H87 Mainboard.

Other then that Openelec feels more responsive than under Windows.

Not in static screens (should be around 20%).
You may get this with RSS enabled, or with other scrolling/animated content.
My apologies. The 100% CPU only last 5 minutes (maybe add-on updates check).
No RSS enabled though.

I have a new problem I just noticed this week - didn't seem to happen in previous versions.

I run an asus chromebook in my theater and when i watch something and go back to the system later I get no audio. A reboot doesn't even help it seems I have to power off the denon receiver to get audio back. Things have been working flawlessly before this so i don't think it's a denon issue but I will have to try earlier versions of 4.0 and see if I can duplicate.

First, thanks for all the developers hard work! Second, this release along with the last release doesn't respond to my remote after the default,dim screensaver comes up after the default period of inactivity on raspberry pi running from a connected hard drive. This setup works very well in some of the previous releases but its completely non-functional in a at least the last two releases. It has to be a glitch related to the sleep driver action for my IR receiver. I receive zero response and can't wake from "dim" after the pi goes to sleep. My IR receiver is: www.amazon.com/SANOXY%C2%AE-Wireless-Rem...&keywords=mce+remote

It worked great in previous releases

I have the same problem, but different remote.

Thanx in advance for any help or advice :)

if you enable SSH in the installer it adds "ssh" to the kernel commandline. If "ssh" is part of the kernel commandline in bootloader config //flash cmdline.txt on RPi, /flash/extlinux.conf or /flash/syslinux.cfg or /flash/EFI/BOOT/syslinux.cfg or on x86 the option to enable/disable ssh in our settings addon is disabled and ssh starts on boot (otherwise while xbmc will be started)
please check if /storage is formatted with a linux filesystem (not FAT or NTFS) and /storage/.cache/ssh dont contain corrupted or empty keyfiles (you can enable showing hidden files and folders in xbmc, add via XBMCs filemanager /storage/.cache as source and delete /storage/.cache/ssh. after a reboot the files will be recreated)

Might be worth trying with "settings level" set to advanced or expert (although I'm not sure openelec settings depends on this).
Do you have ssh specified in cmdline.txt, or have you created a ssh_enable in config directory? They may disable the settings option.
I'm sure a clean install will have the "ssh enable" option (it does for me).

In openelec settings the services page has an "enable ssh" radio button.
