Had forgot to say it's the never releases, the first were fine, but 11514 and two before and all after are not.

with the right receiver and the pi running through it...
dts 1080p works fine on r11540 and has for many many many versions
once I had the right hardware setup in place.

Well the Pi doesnt have Hardware Decode for DD/DTS due to licensing costs. Because of this devs have only one option to software decode on the CPU. This is resource intensive and the Pi doesnt have enough grunt to get it done. Sure optimisation may make it a bit better, but i think its a lot to ask.

It should be possible with pulseaudio, just what guys at raspbmc done (and it works fine!)

It would be really nice to have it included in OE

I was able to compile latest OpenElec with PulseAudio support using this patch:

Is there a user guide for beginners to get all of this up and running without having to trawl through 18 pages of discussion? It would be very helpful for a beginner.

Thanks

sure:

and If you don't want to compile yourself, use http://openelec.thestateofme.com/ (you still need to read wiki). Or go to http://sparky0815.de/ and use google translator.

Does anyone know how to stop the XBMC process from running until the next reboot?

I'm working on some ideas for the library, and want to rsync the thumbnails. All the speed I get get is appreciated :)

(Note: kill <pid> simply causes it to start xbmc again)

You have to do from ssh:

Code: Select all

root ~ # touch /var/lock/xbmc.disabled
root ~ # killall -9 xbmc.bin
When you want xbmc back just delete /var/lock/xbmc.disabled - xbmc will respawn and you don't need to restart system.

Using r11493, all seems ok except for the mute not muting.
Anyone else have this on this release?

i've never found the mute to work. haven't tested it the last couple versions however. tested it using both analog and hdmi audio.

Thank you; this is a more elegant solution than I assumed there would be :)

All OpenElec compilations made after 3rd Jul should play all youtube videos without problems.
And r11493 is quite old release, this morning release is r11591. If you don't want to compile yourself, I think, that http://openelec.thestateofme.com/ is good place for actual compilation. Also http://sparky0815.de/openelec-download- ... fat-files/ is good place if you are lookin for sd card images.

There are 900M SD card images (intended to fit onto any SD card with a nominal capacity >1G) on thestateofme build server too - it's just that there are so many release bundles there now that you have to scroll down a bit to see them. In retrospect I should have created subdirectories for release bundles and images, but since I've set up a notification mousetrap to let me know when new stuff arrives (and others might have too) I'm not too keen on changing things now.

Is OpenElec on RPi build with hardfp? Raspbmc is expected to be when RC4 is released.

The problem with TV banners not displaying and causing lockups has been fixed sometime this last week. Much happier now :) Only thing now for me is Airplay. I can display photos but not videos or music.

Hi,

I updated yesterday to the latest build and now I dont have any menu sounds. When I play a file music or film it works fine, I checked the settings and they look fine ! Any one got any ideas what it could be, audio is over HDMI to my Av Reciever.

I wrote up a guide on Designspark a little while ago.
When flashing my SD card with the latest build (OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel-20120725022533-r11649.tar.bz2) and all seems fine until i try and boot it in my RPi. I get the following error:

*** Error in prepare_sysroot: mount-common: could not mount /flash/SYSTEM ***
[ 19.401619] System halted.

Any ideas?
