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.*

I did my tests again, with first a 23,976 movie that stutters a little and a 25 fps tv show that stutters a lot.

As usual, 4.0.7 is perfect : this is the log sprunge.us/TSES
And 4.2.0 stutters : this is the log : sprunge.us/RNVi

Where am i wrong in my configuration ?

Hello,

unfortunally 4.2.0 (OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-4.2.0) does not run on my system, it shows the mouse pointer on black screen - thats all. Furtunaly samba works so I downgraded to 4.0.3 and got it back to work. But I'm shure I had a 4.1.x version before but cannot find a download for any 4.x before 4.2. Where can the previous versions be downloaded?

I had that too, I pull out my bluetooth mouse/keypad (rii) dongle, boot again, and worked. Then plugged in the dongle and stay working.
Only I encountered stuttering so I went back to 4.0.7

can you post a debug log from 4.1.6 too with the same file playing? can you provide this video as sample for testing here?

But OpenElec is so well done, that it's easy to change versions and i did the test again.

Testing a 23.976 movie that stutters a little but enough to be bad ; it's perfect on 4.0.7
Testting a 25 fps tv show that stutters a lot.

The 4.2.0 log file is there : sprunge.us/KGVP

I did the same tests with 4.0.7 ; always perfect ; the log file is there : sprunge.us/QAhT

Am I right now ? :blink:

Neither of those logs have debugging turned on.

Sorry not so familiar. How can i have debugging on ?
Any other request for having the proper logs ???

Hi,

I've got a NUC and whith this version, i can't suspend after watching some videos.

I can suspend the NUC while i don't watch a video.
Didn't had this problem with the previous version. (4.0.7)
i attach the logs here (i saw the trick about pastebin, thanks a lot, but i didn't know wich log you need... only the wbms one ?)

Thanks a lot.

FYI, OpenELEC has Pastebinit support built-in. So via SSH you can paste your log file(s) directly onto the Internet and get a URL in return. That way, other people will not have to first unzip the log files before having a look at them.

Example: cat /storage/.xbmc/temp/xbmc.log | pastebinit
and a URL will be returned. Use that URL in your posts/messages.

Thanks for information but I have already gone back to 4.0.7.

So the XBMC log is the not anymore the 4.2.0.
Can you try my attached logs or i need to test again 4.2.0 and do the manipulation you request ?

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!

The same happens in beta 5, last working was beta 4.

The same happens in beta 5, last working was beta 4.

Had the same problem....
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 ;)

In openelec settings section. System and Network show the same display. Network works at first but if I switch from wired to wireless then try to switch back I can't because all the network options display the same thing as whats under System.

This started with 4.1.5

This has been fixed for the next version

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.

Yes, i have changed nothing. It connects fine with router and internet but it cannot for some reason communicate with the network!!!! I had raspbmc and changed it to check 4.1.6 . I have no idea why it's not working.

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.

If you want to upgrade your half-god status to full, please make another build includcing the new intel driver made by fermenta on the xbmc boards. This will give us advanced hardware based de-interlacing. Thnx for considering!

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.
[File Attachment: log-2014-07-17-12.44.47.zip]
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...

I have OpenELEC running on my Gbox Mx2, runs real strong. But with 4.1.5 I'm getting a problem in the openelec config. Under Network it says the same thing as System. So there's no option to go from wireless to wired access. I dropped back to 4.1.4 and everything is fine again.

Is it reporting 32 degrees Fahrenheit? Mine does that which is the same as 0 degrees Celsius.

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.

*** Error in check_disks: could not repair filesystem, dropping to debug shell, try to run 'fsck' manually: ***

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?

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:
http://pastebin.com/kNwfBXA4

4.1.3 log - having trouble here:

Hope, someone can help me.

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:
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.

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.

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.

That's rubbish - all they are doing is changing the name.

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.

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...

"10:02:18 T:3063376192 NOTICE: Checking resolution 16" and then it does not much anymore, but showing a mouse pointer

So, reverting back to 4.0.7 (which works like a charm)
On 4.0.7, after the above given log line, it says:
DEBUG: Window Manager Name: Fluxbox

But not in 4.2 Beta 1

please try snapshots.openelec.tv/test/OpenELEC-Gene...-r18724-gc40b706.tar report back and provide this logs again (even if the build works).

Thanks for the update. I've noticed that on my NUC DN2820FYKH the CPU and GPU temperatures both seem to report only 26 degrees C. Something there doesn't seem quite right.

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.

@ 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)

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:)

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.

Still got the same issue which is a deal breaker :-(
Videoplayback freezes during which audio keeps playing on. All further input is ignored (remote, keyboard etc.)
Using Haswell CPU and H81 chipset.

Unfortunately the freeze happens very frequently. I don't know if the debug log helps:

[Yup, using Generic x86_64.
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.
