OpenELEC 4.2.1 released

04 Oct 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.2.1.

This release includes some bugfixes, security fixes and improvements since OpenELEC-4.2.0. Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we fixed the following reported issues:

 

 

  • WLAN not working (using Aetheros HTC based WLAN sticks)
  • double keypresses with remotes
  • showing Xorg mouse cursor in various situations, like after wakeup from dpms/standby...
  • no or corrupt ASS/SSA subtitles
  • non working cpu temperature output on some systems
  • "stuttering" while playing videos on systems with Intel GPU

We also added support for ICE1712 Audio devices and PantherLord Gamecontroller devices.

Preinstalled SD cards for RaspberryPi are available from The Pi Hut.*

So I've turned on debugging and now I have 2 log files with wrong timestamps in the logging directory. Shall i do another debugging run when the error appears again and which of those file do i need to upload?

edit:

whyever i got two files during the first run i hope can solve my problem with the two logfiles attached.... the older one is with working gpu acceleration and the younger one without....

Rainbow coloured box means your pi is under voltaged. Check the rating of your psu, it should obviously be 5volts. but it needs to be at least 2amp or over for B+

Not sure if this is related, but I upgraded to 4.2.1 which caused a complete loss of sound over HDMI at all times even after a reboot.

However restoring from an older OpenELEC (system and XBMC) backup fixed the issue despite it staying on version 4.2.1.

I wonder if some of the settings might have changed and restore forced a change??

Dear all,

I've been on OE 3.2.6 for ages now on my Shuttle X35GT with Nvidia ION 2, because of the following problem with all 4.x releases.
I've just tried OE 4.2.1 Live and after booting the user interface is streched vertically over about 2 1/2 times my screen height. I can't really navigate in XBMC, however by guessing I ended up on the video setup page and even the overscan correction cannot overcome the enormous vertical strech. Are there other people who have this problem with ION 2 chipsets?
I looks exactly as mentioned here:
openelec.tv/forum/120-news-announcements...ased?start=30#104651
Settings look OK: 1080p, HDMI output, etc. It even shows my Samsung TV (connected via an AVR) to choose for video output.
Is there any way I can fix this?
I'd really like to upgrade my OE, but I'm stuck with 3.2.6 because that release really works well.

Cheers

I updated my Intel NUC 34010 from OPENELEC 4.0.7 to 4.2.1 and now the files of my usb drive won't show anymore. I tested to go back to 4.0.7 and there are my files again. Under 4.2.1 when i attached the usb drive i got a message if i want to connect the drive but i can't input a answer. How can i connect my usb drive so i see my files again?

Thanks for help

I'm finding that 4.2.1 will not allow any control over ASS/SSA subtitles. I guess I should be happy as 4.2.0 eliminated the subs entirely..
How do I report this issue? (NUC i5)

It doesn't worry me too much, but since 4.2 or maybe 4.2.1 the splash screen is not stretched to full screen on my 1080p displays.

ION2 systems into LG 1080p TVs. Splash comes up in centre of screen, and taking up about 1/3rd of the real estate.

As I say, not a biggie.

OpenELEC 4.2.0 released

26 Sep 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.2.0.

OpenELEC-4.2 is the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.0.

Since OpenELEC 4.0 we have reworked many parts of the underlying OS. This release is the result of 6 months of development and testing and will be the basis for the upcoming OpenELEC-5.0 release series which is planned to release with Kodi-14 later this year.

 

  • OpenELEC-4.2 is now based on Kernel linux-3.16, Mesa-10.3, llvm-3.5 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-216, our Connectionmanager to connman-1.25 and XBMC to XBMC Gotham 13.2.
  • We switched our libc from eglibc to glibc, upgraded to glibc-2.20 and binutils-2.24.
  • We added support for nss-mdns, support to perform filesystem checks on every boot for our both default system partitions and ffmpeg-2.4 to our x86 builds. With switching to ffmpeg-2.4 on our x86 builds we now support h265(HEVC) and Dolby Atmos.
  • OpenELEC 4.2 includes a new MMC/SDCard driver for RaspberryPiThis 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).
  • OpenELEC now uses the PSTATE CPU scaling driver for Intel Systems and includes drivers for more hardware like DVB devices and WLAN adapters.

OpenELEC is not affected by the shellshock Bash bug because we haven't used Bash for 1.5 years. :-)

Preinstalled SD cards for RaspberryPi are available from The Pi Hut.*

Hi! Pretty new openelec user here so please bare with me.

I built a htpc a few weeks ago and installed openelec! Most work fine except a few things.

cpu: Intel Core i3 4130T
mobo: ASRock H87M-ITX
ram: Corsair Vengeance Low Profile DDR3 PC12800/1600MHz CL9 2x4GB (CML8GX3M2A1600C9)
hdd: WD Green WD20NPVX 8MB 2TB

4.07 - i had no issues apart from wakeup from suspend. (ps2 keyboard resume works but NOT usb keyboard)
4.2 - now shutdown is also having issues and not shuting down completetly everytime, it stalls on the logo and just sits there (i have to manually switch it off). suspend still doesnt work. After display inactivity i get a mouse pointer stuck on the screen (this is solvable by moving the mouse to the screen edge at powerup) - ps2 keyboard resume no longer works
The latest patches solves my mouse issues but i still have problems with shutdown including resume from suspend

Im unsure on which logs you require so if you need me to check anything please let me know what logs you need.

Thanks!

I made quick test and it seems very smooth now.

But I have always a problem with the first seconds of an airplay video : a quick jump forward ou backward after few seconds of playing.
If you can have a look : sprunge.us/Zgdi
That happens to the second airplay video.

I said, that a Baytrail (which only has the Celeron name cause of marketing) has the worst GPU we have seen in 2K14 and that the only thing you can use is SWFilter + normal Bob. Cause for everything else the render performance is too limited.

With Helix you get another option which is done on the GPU - but this currently has other issues.

Edit: And to add (Never change a running build). 4.0.7 had the exactly same SWFilter VAAPI implementation, btw.

I can confirm that 4.2 is the least stable build i ever used. I have NUC DN2820. 4.0.7 was perfect. On 4.2 I cant use DHCP, after every restart i have to go and click "Connect". Static IP is ok. Some videos got stutter as other NUC users. I recently added USB DVB-C tuner, and live tv performance got small problems too. I contacted fritsch about deinterlacing but we got to the conclusion that the celeron is not good enough for good deinterlacing.Also when i stop the HTPC there is weird flickering on the OE Logo, probably result of the new intel drivers... when i got from my vacation in Monday i will try the test build..

OpenELEC 4.2 Beta 6 released

06 Sep 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.1.6.

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-4.1.5. Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated Mesa to Mesa-10.3-rc3, llvm to llvm-3.5.0 and kernel to linux 3.16.2. We fixed a crash in our installer and when pairing a PS3 remote and updated the RaspberryPi firmware to include the last fixes and features. Also we added STK1160 framegrabber, CH341 USB-serial support and the PSTATE CPU scaling driver for Intel Systems.

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, llvm-3.5 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-216, our Connectionmanager to connman-1.25 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 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.

Okay, it gets a bit weirder. So I booted into Ubuntu (it's a multi boot system) restarted and back into Openelec and now I can't reproduce the issue anymore. That is Openelec now shuts down correctly.

Furthermore, there doesn't seem to be zipped log files for all the times the system rebooted instead of shutting down. I have added two logs files though, the first one I believe is from the last time the system started up before I noticed the issue. The other one is from 30 mins ago and (I believe) was created when Openelec started after having booted Ubuntu.

Hi,

I've got a bit of a weird issue with the 4.2 beta 6. When I try to power off the system it just reboots instead, returning me right back into XBMC.
This is the "Generic x86_64" build on an Asus EB1501, i.e. an ION based system.

The reboot happens both if I select shutdown from within XBMC or type 'poweroff' via SSH.

This didn't happen on the stable 4.0.7, I haven't tried any of the previous 4.2 betas though.

I'd be happy to provide logs if necessary, I just have no idea what logs to provide and how to acquire them.

Hi there,

I've got the 4.1.6 running on a raspberry and since this upgrade to 4.1.6 the Networking ist not working proper after startup.
In my constellation I have got an nas with sambashares and the pi is connected via wifi (TP-LINK N150).
With 4.1.5 all worked like a charme, but with 4.1.6 the Network became laggy and watching videos is nerving, it stutters or even takes long breaks for buffering.
When I go to networking in openelec settings and disable Networking and reenable it, all is working like a charme again.
Seems that on startup the Networking is not starting proper.

edit: I can't reproduce this workarround all the time, sometimes it works, sometimes not. Which logfile could be helpful in this case?

Hi I have only encountered 1 problem so far on my HTPC. It is when I play a file with 5.1 sound I don't get the audio through my sony DAV-DZ330 amplifier using optical out. When I had a play around with the audio settings I noticed if I change the speaker setting from 5.1 to 2.0 and enable passthrough it plays fine and comes through my amp in 5.1. If I change the speakers back to 5.1 the sound stops even with passthough enabled. As I said it works perfectly still with passthrough enabled and 2.0 speaker option. Apart from that it has worked perfectly for me. My Setup Asus M5 motherboard. AMD fx eight core 3.1ghz cpu. Nvidia gtx 550ti. 8gb ram.

Seems odd, consulting the XBMC wiki says this, "Number of channels: This setting does not apply to passthrough audio connections, if enabled."
wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Audio_settings

So, just keep passthrough enabled. and set the number of channels to whatever, (ei, 2.0)

Also take a look here for a quick setup guide.

It is the 6th beta for version 4.2
The versioning scheme can be a bit confusing. Odd numbers on the second digit are used for development leading to the next even number.

Hi,

The OE 4.2b6 boots fine off pxe/nfs. During the playback ( x264 ) a horizontal line appears on the screen, in random locations, and random colors, for a fraction of a second every 1-3 seconds.

The hardware is a HP gt7725 thin client, AMD X2 Turion 2+GHz, and an integrated HD 3200 Radeon.
It performs well on OE 3.x releases with 1080p/DTS h/x264 content.

Thanks!

Mike


edit: disabling "sync video to playback" solved the appearance of >horizontal< lines. dual core Sempron and HD 3200 combo might be taking its last breath in the modern world.
beside that, very nice release!

I'm using Confluence skin, but tested Aeon skin months before. The de-installation routine isn't quite clean, there were several
entries left in "guisettings.xml" (under /.xbmc/userdata/).
Delete every "aeon" setting at the end of the file, reboot and the mouse pointer should be gone ;)

Yes, the betas already include gotham 13.2.
No, the OpenELEC 4.2 branch is running kernel 3.16.2

OpenELEC 5.0 will be based on Kodi 14, Helix. and will most likely use kernel 3.17 or maybe 3.18.

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.

Once I manually select "connect" in the OpenELEC settings application all is well, but I do have to killall -9 xbmc.bin in order to get XBMC to read my central database and thumbnails. Everything ran perfectly in 4.0.7.

EDIT AND UPDATE:

It appears as though this is only an issue when my OpenELEC box is set to DHCP. Setting the IP as a static resolves the issue, if that helps you guys out in narrowing things down a bit.

Thanks for your great work on OpenELEC!

This is still a problem for me. It does connect either with manual settings or when I select Connect manually...

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

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?

Kind of like overscanning....

I've got custom modelines on nvidia, so maybe it's just me
Also got the same problem, and using nvidia GPU (9400m). Not sure logs will be helpful but can share them if needed?

The RaspberryPi I have a problem with hostname with Samba. Names are specified in OpenELEC Configuration Addon is ignored and Raspberry on the network called "openelec".
When re-enable Samba so it helps only the next reboot Raspberry!

"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:

Disabling and re-enabling Samba in OE settings seems to do the trick.

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.

19:01:49 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)

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:

4.1.3 log - having trouble here:

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.

I love OpenElec because of working remote + always up to date components, BUT with OpenElec i get more reboots then lets say wiht XUBUNTU + XBMC. 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:

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.

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.

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>

I have the latest a Intel NUC.

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'm still getting incorrect temperature readings on my NUC with this build. Other than that it's all fine.

Latest 4.2 beta build is running smooth on my zbox ad02 (fusion e350). Perfect playback of 1080i livetv content with temporal deinterlacing.

Thanks much!!

How do I remove the built-in support for the Xbox One remote that was added in 4.0.3?

My Xbox One remote already controls my Xbox and using it for its intended purpose makes my OpenELEC box do all sorts of random things.

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.

OpenELEC 4.2 Beta 1 released

16 Jul 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.1.1.

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.

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 (beta1). 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-2.2 to our x86 builds. With switching to ffmpeg-2.2 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.

EDIT AND UPDATE:

It appears as though this is only an issue when my OpenELEC box is set to DHCP. Setting the IP as a static resolves the issue, if that helps you guys out in narrowing things down a bit.

Thanks for your great work on OpenELEC!

Hey everyone! Exactly the same for me, it does not connect automatically, I have to manually open the addon and select 'connect'. Tell me if you need any more logs...

Do I need to enable anything to perform filesystem checks on every boot for my RPi? I read this is a new feature.

I would also like to mention that the cpu load is about 80% on my RPi almost the entire time.

Thanks for everything.

Thanks team. I installed it this morning and it was running fine as always. Will report anything out of the ordinary in case I notice that :)

Any plans on switching Tvheadend to the 3.9 branch in the official repository? This might be a good moment to get people migrated. The current 3.9 builds are becoming quite stable.

OpenELEC 4.0.7 released

09 Jul 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.0.7.


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.

I rolled back to version 4.06, 4.07 didn't work well in combination with my RPI (spontaneous reboot during playing a movie, several stutterings, slaggy navigation and error messages of a broken connection with the pulse eight cec adapter, maybe the new build will give a better result for me.
Posted: 2 months 3 weeks ago by bombarie86 #113845
bombarie86's Avatar
@ Popcornmix, unfortunately your advice didn't work out for me. 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)

bombarie86's Avatar
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

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 :

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
