OpenELEC 4.2 Beta 2 released

23 Jul 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.1.2.

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

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

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

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

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 also have this issue. I'm using a self-built Haswell i3 based machine with a USB Bluetooth adapter. Control through a USB keyboard is fine, but attempting to use the PS3 remote results in an immediate freeze.

I've rolled back to 4.0.7 in the meantime, but I'm happy to provide more detailed hardware information if that would be of use.

I just tried pairing my PS3 BD remote to my Celeron NUC and it froze as soon as it connected too.

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.

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.

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.

After upgrade from 4.0.7 I had to go into the OpenELEC settings application and manually connect to my wired LAN. The OpenELEC machine is running on a ZOTAC D2700ITXS-A-E motherboard. Reserverd IP set via DHCP for the OpenELEC box, thumbnails are on an NFS share and the database is running off MariaDB. 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!

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.

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 :

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.

Does this only affect Haswell GPU?

Using Haswell CPU and H81 chipset.

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

[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.

PerfectBlue, enable debug in xbmc and then check log file is you spot something.

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.

Anyone else has the problem that the master volume (alsamixer) is after every restart at ~70% ? Gone back to 4.0.5 immediately fixed it. Upgrading to 4.0.6 and again the same error. Also my analog soundcard has now another name. I tried to fixed it with the xbmc mixer addon but after every reboot it is the same problem.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

OpenELEC 4.0.4 released

04 Jun 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.0.4.


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

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

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

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

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

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

Previous Versions were absolutely fine (3.95x also).

Please find the log-file attached

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

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

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

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

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

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

Other then that Openelec feels more responsive than under Windows.

My apologies. The 100% CPU only last 5 minutes (maybe add-on updates check).
No RSS enabled though.

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

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

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

It worked great in previous releases

I have the same problem, but different remote.

installed the 4.0.4 today, my "Problems"
- Createlog - the Name of the Log have the wrong Time, 16:31, but should be 18:31
- Starting with TV Menu isn't able, i think thats a Timing problem, xbmc have to wait some seconds to vdr and
vnsi to start and load the Channels - reported this also here openelec.tv/forum/20-development-discuss...ilds?start=330#96313
That worked on 3.0.6, but don't on 4.x

Logs: goo.gl/PjgvGw
So far no other Problems on IVB Graphics and tevii S471 - Great Work!

I even download openelec 4.0.4 sources from github to prevent some corrupted files, nothing helps :( I have no problem with compiling 4.0.3. and I didnt change anything on system. It is pretty much clean and empty Xubuntu XFCE (with OE prerequisities: build-essential automake gawk git texinfo gperf cvs xsltproc libncurses5-dev libxml-parser-perl unzip zip xfonts-utils wget)


Any idea, tip, help or has someone the similiar experience? I am clueless now :(

Thanx in advance for any help or advice :)

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

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

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

OpenELEC 4.0.3 released

28 May 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.0.3.


This release includes some bugfixes, security fixes and improvements since OpenELEC-4.0.2 . Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC with the last fixes to XBMC 13.1 RC1 which contains a lot of fixes for issues found after the XBMC-13.0 release (some of them we already shipped with OpenELEC-4.0.0).
We fixed some (but not all) suspend/wakeup issues, esp. if you run hardware with Intel e1000e Network chips, improved our soundconfig module to autodetect all installed and supported sounddevices and configure them (instead configuring only the first and second sound devices).
We also added support for the XBOX-One Remote.

OpenELEC-4.0.3 is now the next stable release, which is a bugfix and securityfix release of the OpenELEC-4.0 series.

Hello,

Can someone tell me why i can't find the item below in OE 4.0.3 or even in the latest nightly build ?
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/4648
It was merged on xbmc master branch on May 17th.

It's an important subtitles feature we lost with Gotham and it would be nice to have it back in OE asap :)

Thank you !

Hi all,

I'm experiencing lockups / crashes with this release on my raspberry pi. I tested with both CIFS and NFS as a network source.
The crashes occur when using mkv files on a clean OpenElec install with just the trakt.tv addon enabled.

Any thoughts on how to fix or troubleshoot this issue?

@sraue Tested your build and it worked for me...

But then again, your build included the latest firmware (start.elf / fixup.dat) that popcornmix mentioned/linked to above, which solved the problem even with the official 4.0.3 build - at least for me.

Not sure, if there are changes in the build beside the updated start.elf/fixup.dat that resolved the issue, but I took your build and replaced start.elf and fixup.dat with the ones from the official 4.0.3 release and the problem reappeared.

Can you descibe the video file resolution (and aspect ratio if non-square pixels), the display resolution (and aspect ratio if non-square pixels) and the zoom mode in xbmc that causes the problem (a debug enabled xbmc.log when playing a file would also do).
Also do you non-default calibration or skin zoom set?

As stated on GitHub, the problem was solved by your above supplied firmware. Thanks for that!

The Problem did occur on a fresh installation on a RPi connteced to a 4:3 monitor (1600x1200px) with no screen calibration, default skin, default skin zoom set (1.0).
While the screen was black with audio playing, the playing controls were visible, once activated. As said before, when zooming out to 0.92, the picture became visible.

Hi,

I'm experiencing the same things. Using 4.0.3., and the XBMC shows the GUI, but sometimes it doesnt react (tv remote, keyboar) Is this can be an USB3 issue? (I've got an adapter to use anynet on my tv, the adapter is attached in a USB3 port)

I've installed the 4.0.3 version today and watched tv for several hours via the "cmyth" plugin on a raspberry pi (type "B"), standard cpu speed. When watching HD I've noticed several times that the screen turned black and the image reappeared again within 1 second. This happened at irregular intervals. When I switched back to the 4.0.2. release this stopped happening. I'm using a Medion MD20888 display via HDMI.

Hello all together,

after I have updated to the 4.0.3 Version my system is total broken and I dont know what to do.

The problem is that xbmc shows the GUI but it doesnt react on any input from me (tv card remote, keyboard, mouse) but as if by an invisible hand the GUI switch randomly from time to and some wite areas apears and the letters looks strange, like when the get telescoped, similar to barcodes but you see that it should be letters.

So i switchted back to the 4.0.1 Version beacause I get a checksum error with the 4.0.2 Version from achive, but the problem still appears.

After this i renamed my userdata folder with putty (this still works), so that xbmc start as a standard Version but it doesnt helped even than this happens.

The only think I found out that there are a lot of processes with the name migration/# and koworker/#:# and a migration process sometimes takes something arround 10% of the cpu for a short period.

With this i found this topic with a similar problem: openelec.tv/forum/110-update-openelec/67...2-2-killed-my-system but without a solution, and with other linux distributions some people have similar problem.

Can someone helps me ?

Thanks a lot.

I think this may be caused by a firmware update that picked up a bug fix for dispmanx. Can you download these files:
github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/raw/74c1d...c9f21944/start_x.elf
github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/raw/74c1d...c9f21944/fixup_x.dat

and replace start.elf and fixup.dat from the FAT partition or sdcard.

Testing with my RPi on an 4:3 screen, this obviously didn't do the trick for me, but zooming out below 0.92 instantly gives me a working picture every time, with any video file.

Seeing that for mastawili, the change of aspect mode worked, while for me it was zooming out, this problem might be isolated to screens with certain aspect ratios (mine is 4:3).

Pitmans advice with inactivating deinterlace does not work for me.
Neither did it work with me.

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.0.2.

Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC with the last fixes to XBMC 13.1 beta2 which contains a lot of fixes for issues found after the XBMC-13.0 release (some of them we already shipped with OpenELEC-4.0.0).
We readded support for older (legacy) Nvidia GPUs to our Generic-i386 build, and removed old GPU drivers to our Generic-x86_64 build. If you use newer 64bit capable hardware you must switch to our Generic-x86-64 builds now and our Generic-i386 builds will support legacy Hardware only in the future.
We added (e-)MMC support to our Generic kernels and our installer so we now support the installation on devices with included eMMC flash storage like Intel NUC DE3815TYKHE and DE3815TYBE.

OpenELEC-4.0.2 is now the next stable release, which is a bugfix and securityfix release of the OpenELEC-4.0 series.

Greetings,

I still have the same issue with XBMC crashing when I stop playing a video file that I reported earlier in the beta releases and in 4.0.1.

Details below:

I am having issues with XBMC crashing when I stop playing videos. The issue was there since the nightly builds and it still there even with this release. Sometimes If stop the movie, OpenElec freezes, and doesn't respond to anything.

The Dmesg output is below.
http://sprunge.us/bfcW

You could install polipo addon which is http proxy server. Then in it's config file you can set different user agent then xbmc/something.

Or you can try using such url (with |User-Agent=wget at the end)

All through the betas and now the stable version I have had an issue with resume on my XS35GS V3 running openelec generic 64bit. The box wakes but I just have a black screen with a white cursor in the left corner. The odd time it does actually resume and show xbmc.

With the last stable OE I never had a problem so I dunno what's going on.

I'll post latest debug logs after failed resume then a reboot

Your debug xbmc.log: xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=197111
Your debug xbmc.old.log: xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=197112

It seems a few people have similar trouble but there's no help and my github ticket just got closed :unsure:

Since 4.0.0 my Arctic MC-001 crashes every time when I want to play DVB-S recordings in SD. HD is no problem and my other clients didn´t crash playing SD TV content. There is no problem with Live-TV in SD, only with the recordings.
Update to 4.0.2 didn´t solve the issue.

hello,
same behavior reported by "TotalReality" for me, I come from a (dead) configuration based on AMD e350 and version 3.2.4 to a new hardware configuration on version 4, the problem on title occurs in all versions from 4.0 to 4.0.2, both using the integrated GPU on the CPU (intel I5 Hanswell - hd4600) that with the GPU Nvidia GT630 (Kepler) only with VDPAU enabled, no problem using software acceleration or VAAPI (and VDPAU disabled of course).

The problem occurs even with a clean and minimal install (no add-on), using the default skin.

Hardware in use:
Motherboard: GA-H87N-WIFI
CPU: Intel Haswell I5-4460 (HD4600)
SSD: Samsung 250 Evo

bullgates, seems this provider doesn't like that stream would be played with VLC (doesn't like this user agent).
But if you change it to something else like iTunesAppleTV/4.1 it works. You add this under Edit Options when you open the link and you add
:http-user-agent=iTunesAppleTV/4.1

Since version v3.2.4 many m3u8 don't play fine. For instance I could play the link in that version, but since v4.x they no longer work. For example:
http://spi-live.ercdn.net/spi/filmboxplussd_hu_0_1/chunklist.m3u8
These kind of links work fine in ffplay, but they do not work in vlc or dvdplayer. Anyone have can confirm this issue?

ps.: I hope posting the sample link does not violate any rules, if so please tell me and I will remove it ASAP.

I'm running openelec 4.0.1 generic x64 release. System upgrade set to "auto". It did upgrade automatically from 4.0.0 to 4.0.1 but I don't manage to have it upgraded to 4.0.2

I'm having the same issue here. I love the software, but when new releases are released please explain how to update with that release. Do I have to keep wiping my PI to upgrade. At the moment all my links drop in 4.01 crashing everywhere. I downloaded the new 4.01 image and I can't understand how to use it. Need advice please help
thanks

Greetings,

I still have the same issue with XBMC crashing when I stop playing a video file that I reported earlier in the beta releases and in 4.0.1.

Details below:

I am having issues with XBMC crashing when I stop playing videos. The issue was there since the nightly builds and it still there even with this release. Sometimes If stop the movie, OpenElec freezes, and doesn't respond to anything.

The Dmesg output is below.
http://sprunge.us/bfcW

I know nothing about SSH commands, but I tried the ones from FAQ and wiki, but I am not able to output the log. When I tried to use the command "cat /var/log/messages|paste" and even “Cat /path/to/log” I get this error "No such file or directory" is there something I need to enable in order for it to work. I also tried to do “cat /logfiles”, “cat /storage/xbmc/logfiles” with the same error.

First thing:
Ever since version 3.95.7 I have a problem with a manual update by using OpenELEC Configuration addon. "Automatic Updates" I have set to "manual". When I use "Check for updates now" so I can only see the information that the new update. In previous versions display the dialog with the option to download the update. ... Please return this functionality back.

The second thing:
When you set the "Automatic Updates" to "auto" everything works, but we find no information that it finished downloading updates. When you perform a restart during download new update, it is again not begin to download and corrects it just delete content of the directory Update.

thank you for the new release. Unfortunately i still have to use the release 3.4.2 because of crashes I get in live TV.
It works for some German channel Groups like ARD, but crashes on others like Pro7. I am using a Dreambox as PVR Server.
Everything works great in 3.4.2.

I am also wondering why it isn't possible to run it as a live system any more (was possible in 3.4.2) And even with the stable versions the installer is giving me a warning that I am installing a beta version.. this might be very confusing for many people.

I have attached my log file with the crash (Deleted the log file - reproduced the error - saved the log file)

Also releated to a previous posting

Edit: Seems like I cannot attatch the xbmc.log File... I uploaded it to pastebin

OpenELEC 4.0.1 released

14 May 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 4.0.1.


This release includes some bugfixes, security fixes and improvements since OpenELEC-4.0.0 . Besides the usual bugfixes and package updates we updated XBMC with the last fixes to XBMC 13.1 beta1 which contains a lot of fixes for issues found after the XBMC-13.0 release (some of them we already shipped with OpenELEC-4.0.0). We included fixes for reported issues like crashing or freeze issues on RaspberryPi and non working calibration setup on RaspberryPi.

OpenELEC-4.0.1 is now the next stable release, which is a bugfix and securityfix release of the OpenELEC-4.0 series.

Hello, i have testet openlec 4.0 also 4.0.1 and both version are lack of the usb cec devices problem. i have reported this into the 4.0 announcement in detail so i am not going over here as well. Also i did testet the openelec 4.0.1 with cec-library 2.3.1 after an suggestion of pulse eight cec library team on github. As far i can tell, the connectivity issue does not ship from the cec library! it is an openelec only problem. Why? the xbmcbuntu also ships the cec-library 2.4.1 which works without any interruptions but not on openelec. so please take the time to discover the disconnect or malfunction with cec usb device from pulse 8 usb devices.

also i noticed, that the xbmc crashes after a while playback of any video stream.

thanks in advance.

Sorry for that, for some reason I am not able to attach the log files, I am getting a MIME upload error.
So, I uploaded them on Google drive, and I included the link in the original post.

I should also mention that the tv scraper seems to find the name correctly, gets the correct fanart, but just can't find any episode info.

read the XBMC wiki and learn how to create .nfo files that explicitly tell the scraper which show ID on thetvdb.com to pick

Same here in regards to the resume movie issue, which makes at least 2 of us.
And indeed, where did the message file go to? Haven't seen anything regarding this in the release notes.

This feature never worked for half the people who enabled it; hence it has been removed from the OE settings addon. You can install "hd-idle" from the unofficial addon repo where if it works that's great, and if it doesn't .. it is not a supported addon.

just noticed the missing hdd standby as well
i thought only the option was missing in the gui but after leaving
the rpi and the hdd on all night i realized by not hearing a spinon
noise that the hdd never went to sleep
this missing feature is rather important imho as pi and embedded
devices are all about saving energy...
anything devs still need from us? i guess a log wont help if the option
isnt even in the GUI anymore
p.s. after 3 ppl reported this can we get a reply from a dev at least?
is this beeing worked on or will this never come back?

Hi,
first of all, thank you very much for the the heavy developing on openelec.

I would really love to update to the new version, but, as with every beta before, i still can't watch live-tv with it, so i needed to downgrade to the old stable again.
It's still the same problem i reported here:
openelec.tv/forum/120-news-announcements...?limitstart=0#104331
Maybe a different dvb-s firmware can help?
If you think, this could be worth a try, i would like to try, but i don't really know how.

Please help me, this ist a real show stopper for me.

Thank you
Sascha

Bug reports you can find at OE's Github page.
Does your Core i5 have internal grapics too?
if so, remove the HD6850, and test things using the Intel's own GPU.
The VDPAU driver for AMD hardware may still have a problem with DTS.

My i5 has no internal GPU. DTS is working. DTS-MA worked with beta7 but not with latest final 4.0.0 nor 4.0.1. Is the display driver different?

Long time stalker, first time poster.

Why am I posting? Because I'm annoyed.

At OE team? No, they're doing a great job! A thank-less job.

Who am I annoyed at? People who don't get it - particularly developers.

As a developer, I have worked to support various commercial products for numerous years. When a customer raises an issue using the official "report a bug" page, we will investigate. If a customer has a rant on Social Media, we have an employee to contact them, and direct them to our "report a bug" page, or otherwise collect the information from them.

If the development team suspects that the issue is hardware-related, we go to our hardware room and setup the environment, or go out and buy that hardware. Granted, not every company does that, but that's off-topic.

This is a free and open-source project. For the most part, no-one is getting paid to be part of these projects. They are doing it for YOU for FREE. If an OE developer does not have that particular hardware, are you expecting them to buy it, at their personal expense?

Here is a thought - why don't you donate some money, or hardware to the OE team. Maybe even loan them the equipment until they can fix the problem. If you're a developer, why don't you grab the source code and try to fix the problem yourself?

If you want commercial support, go pay for a commercial product. Then at least when you don't get the service you want, you can complain that you paid good money for a bad product.

Personally, I'm stuck on v3.95.3. Booting from USB has issues with my configuration on all subsequent versions. Will I try v4.0.1, you bet.
