[Beta] OpenELEC 4.0 Beta 6 released

19 Apr 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its 6th Beta of OpenELEC 4.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 3.95.6.

This release includes some bugfixes and improvements since 3.95.5 (beta5). Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC with the last fixes to XBMC 13 beta4, updated the kernel to kernel 3.14.1, fixed some more WLAN drivers, added experimental ALSA support for RaspberryPi and added experimental 4K support for supported platforms.

The team has made a huge effort to make this one of our best releases yet. Since the OpenELEC 3.0 and 3.2.x releases, we have worked hard to improve OpenELEC in a number of areas. Some of these are visible changes, others are backend changes that aren’t as visible to every user but are certainly worth mentioning.

The OpenELEC 3.95 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.0.
OpenELEC-4.0 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-3.2.

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-3.2 to OpenELEC 3.95.6 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.

We might need to move our discussion over at openelec.tv/forum/64-installation/69105-...dn2820fykh?start=255 - I will post here, to understand/Compare various configurations users of DN2820FYKH have, and if the lockup issues are experienced, although would really appreciate if the developers could give their input?.

Cheers

Maybe you can take the SSD from the Stable NUC for testing purposes?

Might be worth a go but i think Toli77 is right and I doubt it will help as my 2 NUC's and Bryceb's unit have SSD's and they are not handling Beta 6 very well at all.

It is a bit weird that the stable ones of Toli77's is the SSD equipped unit, haven't tried running mine for USB stick, not that i would consider that for anything other than testing purposes.

My pci config is exactly the same with bryceb's post.
The stable NUC is running with samsung 60 gb 830 evo ssd and Kingston 4GB DDR3 ram.
The unstable NUC is running with Kinston usb stick and Kingston 4GB DDR3 ram.
Both with FY0025 Bios.

For me , Both the Unit's are Identical, consisting of the NUC, a 30G Sandisk Readyboost SSD and 4 Gig Kingston DDR3 KVR16LS11/4.

Only current difference between them is one is running FY0025 Bios, the other is running the latest FY0028, again just for comparison sake.

What is the make/model of your SSD and memory configuration? I am running a Sandisk Extreme 128G ssd with 4G DDR3 1600MHz, and having the lockup issue.

Also, for interest sake this is my NUC pci config, just curious if your working model shows the same?:

is your 2nd NUC the same model or a different one, ie i3 or i5 based one as opposed to Celeron? There was someone else on here with a NUC not having the same problem think it might have been in the Beta 4 or 5 threads, not 100% sure where but it was an i3 or i5 based one.

Log Files attached. This is from the Beta 6 version.
Powered it on, watched a show without issue but seems to have frozen after that, had to power cycle it to get it back as per previous posts. Normally it freezes before i even get to watch a show unless i let it freeze ( normally within seconds of booting) , reboot it and then it's bulletproof as long as i don't turn it off..

the "6" in 3.95.6 refers to this being Beta 6 (of openELEC) which is based on Beta 4 of XBMC.

4.0 will be the full release number of openELEC once it leaves beta, it's not final yet hence the 3.95.x version numbers

If you are using one of these builds, you will need to migrate to the Generic builds. If you need to migrate from an older unsupported build, please follow these instructions:

I am having exactly the same issue with 2 separate NUC's, the exact same model's as bryceb.

Only started around beta 4 also, prior to that it didn't do this.

I have tried fresh installs of beta 5 and 6, the i386 version as well as a few recent random nightlies and they all do the same thing, Thinking i might need to go back to Beta 3 , if i could find it to download, or maybe a nightly from around that time.

I even tried a few different releases, XBMCbuntu and Geexbox, they don't crash in the same way but have other more annoying issues such as lack of decent remote support and repeating remote buttons, Open Elec is much better in the "works out of the box" category but this one crashing bug is driving me nuts.

For me if i have turned the Unit on by remote control, it invariably locks up within about 10 seconds, everything freezes and I can only power it down by holding power button in.
If i then restart it by pressing power button the NUC will run fine ( for the rest of the day) and will operate perfectly fine until the next time i turn it off with the remote, and when i later restart it it will lock up again.

Hi All,

I posted in the Beta5 thread openelec.tv/forum/120-news-announcements...ased?start=60#103512

I have installed a fresh install of Beta6 and even going through setup, I am still having issues with Beta6 and the NUC DN2820FYKH locking up.. I have attached log files from Beta6. Note as mentioned in the previous thread, Beta 1-3 does not display this issue, however Beta 4-6 so far have.

Any help appreciated.

Alsa available on Raspi? Great!! Is there any information how to use that or tweak it (from the command line)?
I could select the "ALSA output to PCM2702" which is my soundcard in Settings / System / Audio but alas (!) no

ALSA is still somewhat experimental but works for some people. It's mostly been tested with I2S cards like HiFiBerry,
but may work with USB. Report if you have success with any particular card.

Omxplayer doesn't support ALSA. Paplayer (for music) and dvdplayer (for video) will support it.
Paplayer is the default for music. For video you can context-menu then "play using dvdplayer",
or you can configure dvdplayer as the default video player in advancedsettings.xml.

Context-menu then "play using dvdplayer" may also be useful for formats not supported by omxplayer,
like DivX 3, msmpeg or Sorensen spark (up to SD resolution). Also DVDs should support menus with dvdplayer.

Can you try copying the firmware (start.elf and fixup.dat) from the latest image to the 3.95.1 image, and confirm if that still works?
That may identify if it's a firmware issue, or xbmc issue.

Thx for the tip - i didn`t copy the newest start.elf and fixup.dat while upgrading from 3.95.1 to newer beta releases. Copying all new files helped :whistle:

Hi All,

First time poster.

I have the DN2820FYKH NUC with 4G RAM and 128G ssd, running Openelec Gotham Beta. Up to and including Beta3, this has been a great build, and very fast, however since Beta 4, I have been experiencing consistent system lockups when using Openelec.
The general experience has been within around 3-4 mins (typically, but not always), of a startup, the system will no longer respond to network or input, (Display still working). When the lockup occurs, the box needs to be forced down, and rebooted.

Note if it helps, typically I would be sending input commands via IR remote or bluetooth keyboard when the lockups occur, although in the latest lockup, it occured while watching live TV.

I have attached logs (captured after a lockup, and restart), hopefully someone can give some indication of what might be going on?

Hi,

I'm running an ATV with 3.95.5 currently.
I have the following problem:
It takes up to 1-3 minutes until playback of HD content streamed from a Windows PC starts.
With version 3.2.4 it also was slower than before 3.2.4, but now it's extremly sluggish. Additionaly jerks while playback occour. I've a CrystalHD card and it's activated - according to settings.

I've the same problem with all other beta's.

Are there any other ATV users that have similar problems?

Thanks, MDummy

First of all, great job on the Gotham build! Have been looking forward to if for quite some time now.

I noticed that I have a problem with the wireless range on 3.95.5 compared to 3.2.4 (It's a multi boot laptop, including Ubuntu 13.04) 3.2.4 and Ubuntu can connect to the AP fine. However the driver in 3.95.5 seems to refuse. When I get close enough to the AP it will connect fine. (so no apparent WPA passphrase failures)

lspci giving me the following output for the WiFi interface

When I try to view a YouTube trailer on my RPi with the latest beta and nightly build, the system restarts.

I've also noticed that ever since curl was updated, the subtitle searches started to take longer. Although, completely starting over the setup by removing the "/Storage/.xbmc/" directory might also help speed up the subtitle searches also. The problem is that there could also be other connectivity factors involved thus making it slow as well.

I've also got this on my RPi too - 3.95.5 was the first beta I'd tried.

Separately whilst I can add sources, and use File Mode to move around the directories, as soon as I try to play something or Scan to Library, then the RPi just hangs and refuses to do anything (using SAMBA to a Unraid 5.x server if that's relavant)

Hi,

since Beta 3.95.2 i've got a problem on my raspberry with audio over hdmi and a panasonic receiver. It worked quiet well in 3.95.1.

After startup you can hear a whirring. After playing a music file or tv livestream or a movie, the sound works ok. After playbadk stops, the whirring returns.

It may be he default paplayer, because if i play mp3 it is also distorted. After chosing omx as default at least the playback works - but only until the end of that playback. In the gap between those music files the whirring retuens. Any ideas what happened ?
I guess the audio Format handshake may be faulty....

I've tried clean install of all of the five betas, all give exactly the same result. 3.2.4 works fine. So you're not the only one. From what I've seen, It isn't your methods which are failing.

Hi,

I did the followings:
- perform a soft reset on 3.2.4. Everything went back to factory default settings
- copied the content of target folder of OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-3.95.5.tar file to Update folder.
- reboot the system.

The result is the same as it was before. I have a strange striped screen with moving mouse cursor but nothing else.
Any hint?

[Beta] OpenELEC 4.0 Beta 4 released

04 Apr 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its 4th Beta of OpenELEC 4.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 3.95.4.

This release includes some bugfixes and improvements since 3.95.3 (beta3). Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC with the last fixes (its shown as XBMC 13 beta4, but its not the final beta 4 of XBMC 13!) and updated the kernel to linux-3.14 which for example should solve some issues with AMD GPU hardware, adds new - and updates some drivers.

The team has made a huge effort to make this one of our best releases yet. Since the OpenELEC 3.0 and 3.2.x releases, we have worked hard to improve OpenELEC in a number of areas. Some of these are visible changes, others are backend changes that aren’t as visible to every user but are certainly worth mentioning.

The OpenELEC 3.95 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.0.
OpenELEC-4.0 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-3.2.

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-3.2 to OpenELEC 3.95.4 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.

Now i got the problem, to restore my system?
I can't find the backup or better say... how can restore ??
Anybody can help me?

Thank you for the great work ...

Since Beta 3 WLAN on my RPi is not working anymore. The WLAN chipset is a Realtek RTL8188SU and it was always working nice (even with Beta 1 and Beta 2) . With Beta 3 and 4 even the LEDs on the WLAN stick are complete off. I guess the stick or its drivers are not installed correctly anymore.

Could this be fixed in a future release?

Thx Lars

On the RPi, the skin sounds work but the volume is extremely low. I have HDMI output with default 2.0 sound enabled. I can only hear the skin sounds when I turn the volume almost full blast.

Edit: problem solved by updating to latest nightly build and removing .xbmc directory in storage and doing the settings over.

Hi, having the same issues with beta4 on a Asrock ION running beta4 3.95.4. I am streaming from a Synology DS using power line adaptors - i upgraded my synology yesterday to the newest version.

Stuttering and lockups after 10minutes all day yesterday before upgrade. I lost sound this afternoon and now getting regular lockups on simple tasks like navigating XBMC.

Downgraded to beta1 - similar issues, and now upgrading to beta3 again to see if there is a difference.

Will post a log if possible.

On my Raspberry the audio output over HDMI passthru is broken after updating to 3.95.4

Analog audio instead is still working...

Even a fresh install of the beta4 image does not fix this issue.

Cheers Tom

*EDIT*
After several reboots suddenly the HDMI passthru starts working again.

Hi,
I'm using a raspberry pi with an IR receiver to control XBMC with a Logitech Harmony remote.
The IR receiver is an IR605Q plugged on a USB HUB.
Until now everything was working fine.
But since i've upgraded to beta 4, when i press a button on the remote, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's like if the rpi was overloaded and was very slow to react but i have checked and CPU is only 30% used.

I've downgraded to beta 3 and now everything works again.

Do you know what could be the problem with beta 4 ?

Thanks

Thanks, disabling FIQ solved the issue. Since beta 4 was just released and have FIQ disabled by default I will upgrade and revert to the default cmdline.txt.

Hi,

I'm running an ATV with 3.95.3.
I have the following problem:
The bigger the HD-file is the longer it takes to start playback. It takes up to 1-3 minutes until the playback starts.
I've a CrystalHD card and it's activated - according to settings.
With version 3.2.4 it also was slower than before 3.2.4, but now it's extremly sluggish.

Are there any other ATV users that have similar problems?

Thanks, MDummy

I'm trying out OpenELEC to see if I can replace my current Myth Frontend + XBMC setup with just XBMC. I tried 3.2.4 on a live USB until I found 0.27 didn't work with it. When I try 3.95.3 on the same USB stick, there's no option to run live. It sits on the new (nice looking) splash screen for about 10 seconds then opens the installer. I notice I can type while it's waiting but don't see any instructions for what I should type (if anything). Am I missing something obvious? Thanks.

I have an Asrock ION A330pro, and the only version that works properly for streaming is the latest ION build 3.2.4, I don't know if it's because of some hardware issue, but it's the more stable release. I've tried to compile the GIT version some weeks ago but I had some compilation errors. For me the beta 3 generic build freezes a lot, but still congrats to all the developers, they sure achieved great targets, and neat features. :)

I turned off auto updates and reverted to beta 2 because of the freezing issues. My machines told me right away that a new version was available. Is that just for information or is it going to install it? I'm probably going to wait for beta 4 and see if the freezing issues are gone.

Other than that it seems to be running great.

I really don't understand why this 'feature' :blink: has been added, can you please explain? This means I'm not able to turn on/off de device with my IR remote!
Thx!

I second that (again). It is a completely unnecessary feature - there are a lot of OE users like myself who are booting from USB and using suspend. And now we have to physically get up and press on/off button every time.

+1 I am kind of confused because of this so called feature. I always loved the fact that my OpenELEC runs from a SDCard and can be suspended and wake up by my Harmony IR. Please get rid of it :)

thx


Apparently, we've been told that suspend on removable storage have led to data loss and corrupt filesystem on some systems. Moreover it HASN'T been working correctly on 99.99% of machines. That is what developers are saying, look here - github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/pull/3038

This is really strange - I don't know where this statistic is coming from because i have never had any problems with suspend, when running from USB prior to OE 4.0. And I've used 3 different machines - custom built Core 2 Duo HTPC, Zotac ION box and Intel NUC. I guess I was really lucky!

Anyway, developers are pretty sure that this is dangerous, so suspend won't be returning to removable storage, I guess. Had to install OE on SSD myself. But suspend still isn't working because of some bug with Intel hardware ;(

Playback on my RPi hangs after about half an hour. First the sound vanishes and then video feezes a couple of seconds later and I get no response from the keyboard.
Ssh works and I can execute commands but when running top it just hangs with no output.
Starting another ssh session hangs for 10-20 seconds then logs in and while doing that the top command (in the first session) produces output and Xbmc unfreezes and starts to work.

It seems to me that the second ssh session somehow rattles things and releases the deadlock. So far I've been able to reproduce this both times when it was hung.

Last line written to xbmc.log while it is hung is at '14:09:56 T:2816472144'.

As far as I can tell the Intel suspend bug hasn't been fixed nor in beta 3 nor in a latest nightly. It is a kernel 3.13 issue, but the new kernel 3.14 is said to be already in the master, so hopefully we have a proper working build in few days.

Отправлено с моего Nexus 5 через Tapatalk

For what its worth, i installed the latest nightly r18081-g04ee4ba which is based on Linux 3.14 [which i confirmed by going to the settings/information tab in XBMC] hoping that it would fix my WOL/Suspend issues on my i3 Haswell NUC. I can confirm that it DOES NOT fix the suspend problems on haswell NUC's.
http://xbmcnightlybuilds.com/openelec-generic-x86_64-r18081-g04ee4ba-download/

I tested suspend a few times, and i experienced the same behavior as before... The NUC would either go into suspend and then instantly wake up, or the NUC would simply hang when i clicked suspend requiring me to hold the power button to reboot it. This is a known issue, see:
https://communities.intel.com/message/230781#230781

I was also hoping that 3.14 kernel would fix my WOL issues, unfortunately so far it seems like it hasn't.. If i enable WOL in BIOS, boot into XBMC then shut the NUC down, after 2 seconds of being shut down the NUC would wake back up and boot back into OpenELEC. This is also a known issue, see

tets with the latest from here: snapshots.openelec.tv/


I've used R18067 build from here - xbmcnightlybuilds.com/category/openelec-generic/ - still no luck with Intel and suspend (I'm on SSD right now since suspend for USB disabled now). The latest build on snapshots.openelec.tv/ is R18057 so it's older. Or is there some other difference between these two sources?

As far as I can tell the Intel suspend bug hasn't been fixed nor in beta 3 nor in a latest nightly. It is a kernel 3.13 issue, but the new kernel 3.14 is said to be already in the master, so hopefully we have a proper working build in few days.

[Beta] OpenELEC 4.0 Beta 2 released

15 Mar 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its second Beta of OpenELEC 4.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 3.95.2.

This release includes some bugfixes and improvements since 3.95.1 (beta1). Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates as well the XBMC Gotham beta2 release we also added some fixes to fix Airplay issues with iOS 7 devices, fixed SSL support for XBMC's internal ffmpeg, more firmwares for bluetooth, wlan and DVB devices, fixes for standby/wakeup issues on some systems and a fixed LIRC support for RPI's GPIO remote receivers.

The team has made a huge effort to make this one of our best releases yet. Since the OpenELEC 3.0 and 3.2.x releases, we have worked hard to improve OpenELEC in a number of areas. Some of these are visible changes, others are backend changes that aren’t as visible to every user but are certainly worth mentioning.

The OpenELEC 3.95 release series are test releases (beta) for OpenELEC-4.0.
OpenELEC-4.0 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-3.2.

You should only upgrade from OpenELEC-3.2 to OpenELEC 3.95.2 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.

Hi!
i tried Beta 3 today, but i still have those livetv playback issues especially (but not only) with HD channels.
Don't have any issues with playback of livetv with the latest stable release.
Here's the logs, debug starts at line 334.
xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=162027
I really think that
12:31:41 T:2735731792 ERROR: ffmpeg[A30FF450]: [ac3] frame CRC mismatch
may be the problem.

Thank you very much
Sascha

Hallo,

I have tested OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel-20140325211855-r18010-g0ffd4cb. For me Airplay with iOS7.1 does not work.
Can somebody confirm this issue?

strange - the booted kernel has another version than the modules - may this be the problem ?

raspberrytest:~ # uname -a
Linux raspberrytest 3.13.5 #1 PREEMPT Wed Mar 5 19:35:59 CET 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux
raspberrytest:~ # find / | grep lirc_rpi
/lib/modules/3.13.7/kernel/drivers/staging/media/lirc/lirc_rpi.ko

Solution: i used an outdated kernel on the SDCARD i am booting from. After updating the kernel all modules were loaded.

:woohoo:

Running this Beta version or the actual Dev build on Raspberry and booting via nfs gives me following problem:
the lirc module cannot be found - and because of this error it seems NO module is loaded:

I had mine freeze up, and I noticed the USB IR receiver blinking so I unplugged it and the video started playing again. The remote was on the shelf and nothing was pushing buttons if you are thinking that might a cause. Tried it again the next time, but did not work.

Ok, just paused again at 22:15:00
No changes at all to logs.
Again, audio stopped then video.
SH'd in. Entered wrong password until SSH server responded with error.
Video then started again.

Will try nightly OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel-20140325211855-r18010-g0ffd4cb.tar

Finally it failed again for me.

The sound stopped first, then a few seconds later, video paused.
I logged in via SSH and as soon as I entered the password, XBMC showed "CEC: Disconnected".
The video then jumped around a bit and then continued playing.
CEC is not working now.

Logs:
journalctl: sprunge.us/ccfS
xbmc.log: pastebin.com/LF24V2U0

Pause happened around 21:47:00
Seems there is nothing in ether logs related to the pause :( ?

I also have the same problem. My work around is strange: I disconnect the LAN(yes not my HDMI) cable then i get the message 'pulse eight cec adapter stopped' i plugin the lan cable and my video start playing again. Of course my tv-remote doesnt work anymore i have to use my XBMC remote to control.

I made an account to post this.

I have the same or a similar issue, I just ssh in. Once logged it it starts playing again. Sometimes i have to run "top" or log in a few times but no more than 3. Give that a try if its easier.

Strange.
My setup is:
OpenElec on RPI. Shared MYSQL database on my PC and also the movies hard-drive is on my PC (sharing via SMB).
So, the Pi is accessing the MYSQL database and movies via the network to my PC.
Never had this problem on the stable releases.

Are we mind readers?

Logs please
<code>journalctl -b | paste</code>
<code>cat /storage/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log | paste</code>

Thanks for letting me know the commands :)
Waiting for fault now and will paste logs when it does.

+Karma for you ;)

Is anyone else experiencing the same problem? It was working fine with latest stable version.

Same here. It seems to be random intervals.
I check the log, and nothing at all about it.

On both of my Intel 847 builds the suspend feature is not working anymore .
Sometimes it does suspend but it will not turn on from the remote but it will from the power button.
Other times it will suspend but the power LED on the box stays on and the only way to get the box out of this state is to reset it.
I did update from previous OpenELEC version manually. Remote used on both boxes is the Keyspan RF remote (Tripp Lite Keyspan ER-V2 RF Remote Control).
The same setup worked perfectly with OpenELEC 3.2.

Other things I noticed is the back button on the remote is now assigned to a different function while playing a video, it used to skip back 10s.

[Beta] OpenELEC 4.0 Beta 1 released

06 Mar 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its first Beta of OpenELEC 4.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 3.95.1.

The team has made a huge effort to make this one of our best releases yet. Since the OpenELEC 3.0 and 3.2.x releases, we have worked hard to improve OpenELEC in a number of areas. Some of these are visible changes, others are backend changes that aren’t as visible to every user but are certainly worth mentioning.

Anyone having display issues with an A6-5400 apu? I remember having issues when the nightlies came out and reverted to stable 3.2.4. Seeing as the beta is out I thought I'd try it but same issue. Graphical corruption on top third of screen with the rest black. Would a reinstall rather than upgrade maybe resolve it?

I have tried a clean install to beta 1&2, and upgrade from frodo to beta 2. I don't even get to homescreen. Display goes gray, soon after the splash image. The build i tried was generic, I don't know if I should try OSS. I heard the community drivers are not even close to proprietary though.

I have FM2A75M-ITX, A6-5400K.

Just tried OE Gotham Beta 3 from live USB, same symptoms. In case it's a common problem, here are my logs:

Just taken the plunge into Beta 2 to get my SQL databases in line with Gotham. Wow I've got to say everything's working brilliantly it all runs so much smoother and even the crumpled splash screen issue has been resolved now.

Two thing's I've noticed:
  • Cron appears to be broken it's just not working even though the process is there and running. My crontab consists of this "1 * * * * sh /storage/.noip/noipupdater.sh" the script itself is fully executable and working when being executed manually. I've looked in the system logs and there's nothing related to cron beyond it starting up.
  • This is probably a Gotham thing rather than an OE thing but when entering passwords you used to be able to see the entered characters momentarily before they changed to asterix's, but now that's no longer the case. This makes it impossible to enter a password via the numeric pad on my remote - I have to go and plug a keyboard in.

Oh and also the mksquashfs addon is broken in this iteration of OE, it's a really useful tool to me. Any chance of someone updating it?

Have installed this on Apple TV 1G (silver edition). After doing some testing, I have found out that there isn't any sound on the right channel (HDMI output selected in system settings). I have tried to solve this without any luck. I have now reinstalled the non beta version, and the problem is solved. Hope this get solved :-)

It seems like the xorg setting operates at the driver/kernel level, and the XBMC setting operates at the application level.

Perhaps OpenELEC should provide GUI options for both or have them tied together in some way.

Just an update on this, Beta2 seems to have fixed it...removed xorg.conf and configured from XBMC gui by setting use 16...235 range and got the correct black levels.

HI,
tried again with the latest beta build. Now vdr-Livetv seems better, but it's not really stable yet.
I still have quite a lot of artifacts (not as many as with the last beta build i tried about a week ago though) watchin live sd-channles, HD-livetv-playback is still barely watchable.
I thought that maybe it could just be a tuning issue with my dvb-s, maybe i need to readjust the dish?
Only strange i don't have any issues with the stable release. What do you think?

Good point. I want to know that too. Do we need still xorg.conf for limited colors or just XBMC settings is enough.

My recommendation: delete or comment out the line in xorg.conf, reboot, and try to set the correct range using only the GUI. Use a suitable test pattern video/image to test it.

It's always best to have minimal modifications to xorg.conf, giving you easier access and flexibility to settings in the GUI itself.

@MDummy: Almost correct. Backup 3.2.4, Reinstall 3.2.4 (as there is no direct 3.95.1 installer), then restore from Backup and update to 3.95.1.

@chewitt: Thanks for your answer. Do you mean that I should make the backup. Then I should install 3.95.x from scratch. Then I should restore the settings backup and afterwards I should again update to 3.95.x ? Am I right?

Ok solved this by turning of set reresh rate to same as source. Seems odd that I can only bitsream when at 60Hz, it worked at 24Hz on xvba in 3.2.5 and all other sources I have such as bluray just not in Gotham.

@MDummy: We switched new ATV installs from the older and less reliable two-stage boot process using KERNEL and SYSTEM to a better single-stage boot process that uses MACH_KERNEL and SYSTEM about 14 months ago. With Frodo builds we offered both options. With Gotham builds we dropped support for the older method, so to update to the beta you will need to backup your XBMC configuration using the backup option in the OE Settings addon and then reinstall (use the instructions on the wiki). Once you've reinstalled you can restore the backup using the OE Settings addon; then you can update to 3.95.x using MACH_KERNEL/SYSTEM, or just drop the entire .tar file in the update folder which is quicker. Apologies for the inconvenience, but you should be able to do backup/reinstall/restore in 15 mins as long as you have a decent internet connection.

Hi,

I tried to update my atv to current beta. atv is running 3.24. when I unzip the tar file there is no kernel and kernel.md5 inside the "target" folder, but only mach_kernel and mach_kernel.md5. when I copy the files to the update folder of my atv and restart the atv afterwards nothing happens. I restarted about 5-10 times now.

Do I make anything wrong?

OK - I guess I'll go break one of my physical ones then tonight and report the same issue again.

I reported this, as I used the same build options (project defaults) for 3.2.4 for Virtual, Fusion, and Intel without any issues.

I attempt my first 3.95.1 build, and it fails - which leads me to the assumption (possibly wrong) - that something is broke on a larger level.

I'll push 3.95.1 to one of my physical systems and report back.

Just got a Bay Trail NUC kit DN2820FYKH :) running OE 20140313 nightly and here's the issues found:
1. System suspends fine but it doesn't reconnect and I have to reboot to get the wired connection back.
2. Also noticed some major slowdowns and realized that this is due to very high fps reported in system info.
Refresh rate set to always ON in settings.

Other than that everything seems to work fine.

Hi,

I'm running beta 1 X64 generic on a zotac nd22 (nvidia ion, intel cpu)

Everything works fine but i had to make some modifications before.
I had an issue with hdmi handshake and format autodetect.
This lead me to osd not completly showing and overscanning issues.
After a little tests with system and video options, i went to the conclusion 23,96 and 23,97 fps video sources was handled differently, forcing 23,97 solved my issues when using the sync A/V option witch i never used before.
Then i remembered using a custom xorg.conf with nvidia default file found in the wiki.
This file helped me switch from limited rgb to full range but also had infos about supported resolutions and handshake.

deleting ( or renaming) this file solved everything.
I just had to run paterns to adjust contrast and britness again.

So for all of you using custom xorg, i sugest to remove it and see if it helps (you must of course reboot openelec)

So I have discovered that OpenELEC has moved to systemd, which is awesome, but in doing so, has opted for using systemd-journald exclusively for system logging. Unfortunately, I need to forward my logs to a centralized syslog server to diagnose some crashing and instabilty issues with my NUC, and I was wondering if anyone knew a good way to get rsyslogd or syslog-ng or some other utility capable of forwarding logs onto this great system. I have looked into compiling on the box, but can't quite get my head around that. Maybe an addon?

Any help/direction would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

@abraxas: You might want to investigate the new 3.95.1 beta .. there have been quite a few advances for RPi in Gotham. You should also be aware that features like kiosk modes etc. should be requested/described to the XBMC team no OE; although we do collaborate on some things we're primarily a consumer of their work.

Hello!

First of all I'd like to thank the people behind OpenELEC for all their hard work for yet another release. Specially the RaspberryPI support is highly welcomed. Please accept my feedback as is and I hope that some of the XBMC developers read my converns as well. I therefore also hope that some of my thoughts might flow in in further XBMC development as well as in OpenELEC too.

Bugreports:
- Shutdown always reboots rather than shutting the system down (this version - rpi).
- Often pressing "Abort" in video playback over network simply freezes the small abort box bottom right and stays that way for hours.
- Accidently pressing fast forward / backward freezes video playback.
- Random reboots of OpenELEC if network is not reached or remote has turned off their stream for maintainance.
- Random freezes and lockups there and here.
- After 6 Months the system got turned on (my parents had visitors whom we liked to introduces OpenELEC and XBMC) and the system started to automatically update. The result was a disaster and we felt ashamed infront of the visitors and ran into plenty of excuses why things didn't work as they intended to work). -> We now turned everyting off that pulls updates from servers.

Overall Feedback:
I initially bought the RPI for running XBMC (mainly OpenELEC) for my parents on it. The primary intention was to serve the system as a SmartTV to stream foreign language TV stations. Also watching some VIDEOS (mpg, mp4, mkv,...). The system was intended for my parents (both around 70 years). Sadly when I introduced them to OpenELEC they responded to me that they can't handle the system because it's overcomplicated.

And yes the system is absolutely overcomplicated. No matter how much care has been spent into the new "Settings" tool but the overall rest of the system is still complicated.

They (my parents) said to me that they like to use it like an TV. Turn it on, select -> with a few steps -> the channels and then play it. But with XBMC and specially OpenELEC you get quickly trapped into complex situations where "non tech people" simply backs out because they run lost into the system itself.

- First of all the above bugs cause a lot of irritations. Turning OFF means OFF and not reboot. Do this 2-3 times to older people and they never touch the remote again (as they did -> 6 Monts the RPI was not turned on nor was any of their prefered channels viewed) or a video played back.

- A lot of irritating depth of submenus or (should I better say) subdirectories. Once you get out of you application and by accident press one time too much or you directed the cursor wrong and entered a subdir by acciden you find yourself in one of the many subfolders for plug-ins, videos and other stuff. They (my parents) never finds out of it ... -> they never touch the remote again. To say the truth, even I find myself lost in XBMC's subdirectory trees. Specially if you come back after 6 Months for the fist time again you find yourself lost in the overall usage of XBMC.

- Something like a KIOSK mode would be nice. Everything hidden away, no *wrong* or irritating dives into subdirectories by accident. No submenus like (plug-ins or similar). It's ok that you can already turn off "Movies", "Pictures" and so on, but the tiny menues below that should be turned off as well (at least through a setting). Something that one sets one time and never again).

It would be nice if one of the upcoming OpenELEC versions could address these issues as well -> as much as its technically possible. I hope I was able to speak out what I think is an iportant issue and hope that some of the stuff can be adressed in future updates of OpenELEC.

However, I'm running 3.2.3 and have auto-update on. It won't seem to update still after a few months since 3.2.4 release.
Also manual update check doesn't respond with any message. My internet connection is fine.

But, if you like to compile the latest 3.2 yourself, you can use the following:

I would try another card if I had one.. :unsure: but since this only happens with 3.2.4, I have a feeling its not the card. I could be wrong, but I dont really believe in coincidences.

Is there an OpenElec 3.2 bugfix branch in git that I can build without building Gotham? Could someone post the git command used to build the correct branch? Is r15977 the last revision available for OpenElec 3.2 with xbmc 12.3?

I just cloned the openelec source tree and then I saw that it was building xbmc 13... which is probably not going to work as expected since its still in the alpha stage. Would you recommend running the latest source on the master branch?

Best Regards.

Edit: I am used to svn command line when checking out a specific version (ie; svn co -r 15977) but I cant seem to find the equivalent command for git. There must be an easy way of checking out a specific revision with git but I just cant see it in the documentation.

Hi,
You should try another card first...
Another valid test is with some updated release, compiling your on direct from git hub, or some custon build like rbej's one:
netlir.dk/rbej/builds/?dir=Frodo/

But, again, I really think the problem is with the SD card...

Cheers.

The problem also happens with the latest stable 3.2.4 release from rbej. The problem doesn't happen with 3.2.3 and the sdcard has never had this problem until I updated to 3.2.4. I think the problem might have to do with either the shutdown process or that the firmware has trouble with the size of my card. Although,I have also updated the firmware to the latest development version and this problem still persists.

Edit: when I say firmware, I'm referring to the 3rd party firmware.

Edit 2: my last resort is to build the latest source myself, but I was hoping for some confirmation first.

Edit 3: the rbej version will at least shutdown when the sdcard has incorrect byte available. The official version of 3.2.4 does not shutdown all the way when the card gets in this state (only xbmc restarts when I tell it to shutdown). When this happens, I fix the journal on the card and openelec will then shutdown properly again. I don't have the shutdown problem with rbej, but the card is still having incorrect bytes.

I agree with you that is nice focus the attention in the future, but the fact is that Gotham still in alpha (probably will hit beta stage soon), and should be nice have a stable without the infamous "fc-cache is missing" message out of the box.
Stick with a stable release showing an error every boot (even the error being harmless) isn't good for the project at all.
Besides, the 3.2 project isn't dead, according with the github change log. Several improvements have been made. The "fc-cache" was fixed at the same week (if not the same day) that 3.2.4 was released.

cheers.

The XBMC v12.2 that we released in OE v3.2.4 is basically the same as XBMC v12.3. It's not 100% identical but all the stuff that counts was already applied via patches; we also included a number of Gotham backports to address things that even v12.3 doesn't fix. As a result there is no pressing need for a v3.2.5 release and although we mulled the idea for a while the dev teams attention is better spent on Gotham (as it has been for many months now).

Guys, don't get me wrong, but it's time to 3.2.5.
Frodo 12.3 is stable for months now. I'm not complaining, since I do compile from git hub when something changes, but is nice to see the official release up to date.

Regards.

You should really consider to make this an official part of OpenELEC - Hyperion is so so so much faster than boblight and only takes up 2-3% CPU. Raspbmc is going to include it within their next release as well.

this we could do if the author would contact us (except telling XYZ is not possible on OE) and if he is active in our forum with a support thread or at least in the xbmc.org forum.

@klojum - xbmc uses 100% cpu - I presume because one of my addons.
I run a bleeding edge build on a different rpi (automatic build - like Chris Swan's setup + a custom update script on rpi), but there I have almost no addons and anyhow, for that setup it's acceptable to crash from time to time.

"Extremely sluggish".

And so now it's up to us to see in our crystal ball what the problem was?
Getting support doesn't work when you go back instantly to a previous version.

You want a future version? Try the Gotham nightly builds.

Hello,
with this last update I lost a functionality I had on the previous version.
I use OpenELEC on RaspberryPi with Berryboot with two images one with Wheeze and one with OpenELEC.
Before version 3.2.3 update I was able to browse (for movies) the Wheeze image folder from root folder using Samba.
Now, after the update I cant do that any more.
I have made a downgrade to 3.0.3 and it worked again.

Is it possible to regain this functionality?

Oh yes, I see your point about building OE from source code (and not "unknown" binaries) - of course this is the only way to ensure the integrity of releases. Guess I didn't think it all the way through.

Thank you both for enlightening me on the issues - and answering my question.

Point us to a source of redpenguin patches or code and we'll think about including it. Last time I looked I could only find pre-built rtmpdump binaries designed for n00b users to cut/paste into the filesystem. That's not something we're going to support.

Given OpenELEC 3.2.3 was released on the 17th of October it couldn't possibly have a version of librtmp from 22nd of October...

When OE is built most packages are compiled from the most current available, as far as I can see in OpenELEC's git project the version of comes from this repo: git://git.ffmpeg.org/rtmpdump

Has librtmp been updated to the latest version (2013-10-22) from RedPenguin ?

Great news, but i´m having issues with FLAC files after upgrading to 3.2 (and then 3.2.3). This was not an issue before. The HTPC is connected to a Pioneer SC-LX73 amp. For instance a movie with DTS-HD MA with volume adjusted to -20.0 dB on my AMP is very high volume, however when switching over to a .flac file on my HTPC I can barely hear the song, even though the volume on my AMP is unchanged. I have to go all the down to -2 dB to get some sound. If I then forget to adjust volume before switching back to a movie.. well.. bye bye hearing or Dali loudspeakers :P

I've tested streaming (AirPlay) Spotify content to my atv2 and AirPort Express, all good there. Every gadget I have is connected to my amp with hdmi.

All described here:

I've fixed it now.
Customise the Main Screen in Aeon Nox and make sure you enable the "PROGRAMS" menu item. Once you have that enabled, back out to the Main Screen and select the PROGRAMS entry you just enabled. You'll see a few applications you can open - and one of them is the working OpenElec Configuration.

The old method appears to be deprecated.

HI,

Just a small tip that was driving me batty...HD TV files either wouldn't play via the TV Shows interface (Show->Season->Episode) or just the audio stream would play in the audio equaliser.

The error for the latter looked like

21:14:20 T:2974807136 ERROR: COMXCoreComponent::DecoderEventHandler OMX.broadcom.video_decode - OMX_ErrorInsufficientResources, insufficient resources
21:14:20 T:2707420256 ERROR: Output - renderer not started

Anyway, it looks like after the upgrade to 3.2.2, the config.txt for the gpu_mem for the 512Mb had reverted back to 128. This needs to be 256Mb.

Hopefully, this spares others some frustration!

Let me know what logs maybe of use n I'll post. Have to reboot to get it back, with TV source set to xbmc when booting.

I have an Asrock ION3D. Just did a fresh install of 3.2.1 (64bit) last weekend (due to auto updates failing for the size mismatch error).

It just now auto updated to 3.2.2, and upon reboot does not go past the xmbc frodo 12.2 splash logo. Have left it alone to update; did a hard reset/reboot many times etc. Still just sits at the xbmc splash

I am however able to sftp in. Should I throw in the 3.2.1 files which I still have to downgrade?

edit: I downgraded to 3.2.1, it booted fine, then did a manual sftp update using the download from this site. Seemed to work okay.

It doesn't give any confidence when something basic like this is changed apparently on a whim, or maybe just carelessness.

I'm also seeing this issue (I am running ION x86_64 Version 3.2.2 on an Asus AT5-IONT-I board). It's a very unexpected and unhelpful change from the way that OpenELEC and XBMC have previously presented the contents of a folder for those who have files and folders sharing the same level in a folder hierarchy and who choose not to use the library facility.

If it's an error that has crept in, please fix it. If it was intentional, please at least provide the option of using the original sorting method. Thanks.

UPDATE:
  • took out SD card
  • had cup of tea.
  • put SD card in windows PC
  • looked at files on SD card.
  • too scared to copy files on to it from suggested posts
  • put SD card back in Pi.
  • power on.
  • XBMC booted fine.
  • wireless keyboard appears to be working
  • favourites restored
  • managed to play a film
  • video add-ons DON'T work
  • favourites now disappeared again
  • no iplayer or such services working
  • reboot
  • works for 3 minutes
  • favourites back
  • watch iplayer for 1 minute
  • crashes, grey screen on TV, all lights on Pi are on (but nobody home, as they say!)

going to bed.

erratic and unpredictable at best, I don't think I can rely on this to replace my old system of a Mk1 eXtreamer, Synology DS213j and Virgin Media cable TV services.

Much as I'd love to persevere with the Pi and XBMC, it's just too frustrating and unreliable.

I set it up about a month ago and have had 3 or 4 trouble-free days at most since then.

Tonight's random crashing, lack of keyboard etc. etc. and now the loss of favourites after a few minutes, along with the video add-ons means it just ain't good enough for a house full of kids who like the occasional film or cartoon. Just when you think it's going to work - boom, it crashes or won't play something. The kids get very frustrated, particularly if we've settled down to watch a film together. The whole experience is frustrating and does not really show the whole Raspbery Pi concept perfoming at it's best. In fact, it's making me suggest that people AVOID it due to the frustrations we've had.

If anyone can help me fix this and convince me otherwise, I'll gladly listen and try to follow their advice.

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE:

boots OK (or so it seems) but wireless keyboard not working properly (logitech k400r).

Can use arrow keys to scroll through main menu items and their sub-menu items, but touchpad too laggy to be useful.

'Enter' key not working on file lists. Cannot select a video Add-On e.g. iPlayer, to see if that is working.

Favourites now empty.

Navigate to video with arrow keys, select to play, 'Working' message in bottom RH corner of screen for about 1 minute, video plays for about 1 second then crashes back to main menu.

Cannot connect with putty ('Server unexpectedly closed network connection' error message), even though correct IP address being used (this used to work in 3.2.0 and 3.2.1 - albeit briefly for the few days 3.2.1 was useful).

I have no idea what to do, since I barely understand the instructions to do stuff with /flash (wherever that is!) and I cannot even use putty and SSH to even attempt to follow some of the instructions suggested by helpful posters. e.g. http://openelec.tv/forum/120-news-announcements/67367-openelec-3-2-1-released?start=45#87488

Tried to restore from backup configuration (was this wise, I don't know?!) but only got empty window - was it hoping I'd select a backup from a list? I did a backup after 3.2.1 but there was no choice of backup files to choose from offered to me. The little window was blank...)

This is a mojor retrograde step and I am clueless as to how to fix it.

I have a useless Pi and XBMC system, and the wife and kids aren't happy!

aaaaaargh!

I have Xtreamer Ultra 2 and using OE Generic x64. With both versions after 3.2.0 I experience random XBMC restarts (most while playing and some even while in the XBMC menu). Can't show the log since the restarts cascade (there's always at least 2 of them) and the logs are overwritten. Same thing happened a while ago with one of the versions.

Same thing happens with 3.2.0 now :/

I've updated to 3.2.2 but the ION version to see if it'll help.

Crap, I see that I'm the only one with those problems :/
Anyways, I had to revert to Generic i386 v3.0.6 for the restarts to stop.

When I update my RPi to 3.2.2, I can no longer play avi files over my samba mounted drives. When I use the bootloader firmware from 3.2.0 (bcm2835-bootloader-7d8a762) with the 3.2.2 system image then it works and can play avi again.

I just replaced bootcode.bin, fixup_x.dat, and start_x.elf with bootcode.bin, fixup.dat, and start.elf, respectively, from the bcm2835-bootloader-7d8a762 firmware.

Pi, xbmc Frodo 12.2, Transcend 32GB Class 10 SDHC.
Boots, showed update process, loads XBMC main menu.
Can navigate for a few minutes, but Library not working - select a file and it then shows another one, wireless keyboard no longer mapped properly (logitech k400r), then whole thing crashes and leaves me with a grey screen.
Only way to reboot is to pull the power and try again.
Tried 4 times in last half hour. SDHC card going to be well and truly fried if this continues.
What do I need to post here so that problem can be identified, since I only get a few minutes 'use' before it crashes any instructions would be appreciated - bit of a noob at SSH so keep it simple, please!
Thanks in advance.
