Big difference at 800Mhz feels a bit smoother, at 900Mhz its just much more snappy.

Make a config.txt in System Partition with the line
arm_freq=800
or for 900Mhz use
arm_freq=900

Each of those folders contains MKV's, so not sure what the references to VIDEO_TS.IFO are about, also the last error (for Predator Collection) looks like a compete NFS fail. The NAS is a FreeNAS 8.0.2 server which has not shown these errors while scanning with previous builds. However, looking at Recently Added for what it has scanned so far, the metadata is all complete nonsense and seems to be mostly French (despite my UI Language being English), and the paths to the NAS are not working, so could be a problem with the IMDB scanner (and not your build)?

Still getting corrupted thumbnails though - colours seem OK on those that are not corrupted, but a significant number of cover art images ARE being scrambled (but never fan art). However this build does seem significantly faster to display images (what it has downloaded so far, anyway), so many thanks for making progress here - it makes the UI feel much more usable! :)

Something is not quite right with NFS in this build, at least where scanning/scraping is concerned... yet I can access individual files via Videos -> Files and then selecting my source (some NFS related "GetDirectory" errors do appear in the log, but not for every directory and I can play media).

jasjeet not sure my keyboard.xml will help. Will post to you when I have access to it. You may wish to create your own. I suggest a good site for information is http://xbmccustomregis.sourceforge.net/remapping.html. Please note that I used "showkey" to determine key presses of remote then changed the default xbmc keyboard.xml to suit the keys found from the remote.As far as I am aware this only works for radio receiver remotes that send keyboard keypresses otherwise its Lirc i guess. Not sure why my xml doesn't work in openelec but works on windows and raspbmc systems?
I bought a cheap remote from Amazon (£5) that basically sends keyboard presses, I used the keymapedit software here to remap some custom buttons if that's any help.

Hmm... a couple of reboots (of the Pi) later and now scanning again (IMDB) and there are no apparent NFS problems so far (touch wood).

The image corruption is a real problem though... quite often I've had cover art display perfectly the first time, only for it to appear scrambled when it is displayed a second time. Very weird.

Latest uploaded SD image, couple of issues :

Any access to SMB (even trying to set up access to a share) causes an instant lockup (power off required).
DHCP doesn't work, configuring a static IP does.

I'll have a look in the logs and have a look at what's going on network wise when I have a moment.

Both issues apparent over the last few SD card images . . .

OK - I was going to try this when I discovered my SSH has been disabled between the updates. I made a blank file called ssh_enable in the Configfiles share and reboot. Still no ssh access! Not sure where to go from here - hoping I don't have to put a keyboard on the rpi again for this :P

http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/op ... 86.tar.bz2
to update a older build without reinstalling: http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title ... g_OpenELEC
  • updated XBMC many thanks to 'gimli'
  • possible faster fanart/thumbnails loading
  • updated kernel (3.2.19) many thanks to 'bootc'
  • added a CEC daemon ( see https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/issues/801) many thanks to 'olajep'
    Note: this will not work with some TVs like LG and is only a temporary solution until we have a better way - be happy if it works for you :-)
please test this build and report back any problems.

thanks
Stephan
Tried it right now. The kernel.img gets corrupted after every reboot. First boot is fine and if I reboot from XBMC it doesn't boot anymore. If I overwrite the kernel.img with the original it boots fine until the next reboot.

arm_freq=800 -> Perfect :!:

One question, I got a 32GB SD card class 10, which works great. I got 3 partitions
  • 1. fat
    2. ext4
    3. ntfs
Of course, the upload with samba works to fill the ntfs partition, but I would also like to fill the SD card simple by using a Windows PC with a cardreader (it's faster). But the only partition listed is the fat partition...

In my experience, the old builds have problems with audio (analog and analog OMX) and the never ones with buffering.

Even 11286 gives me a lot of OMX errors for HDMI audio like:
10:15:59 T:1266607200 ERROR: COMXCoreComponent::GetInputBuffer OMX.broadcom.image_decode wait event timeout
10:15:59 T:1154827360 ERROR: COMXCoreComponent::DecoderEventHandler OMX.broadcom.image_decode - OMX_EventError detected, nData1(0x80001005), port 0

Usually playing mp3/wma is fine even with the errors, but when doing Picture slideshow on top of it, it hangs within a few minutes (music stops, slideshow shows the same picture indefinitely).

It would be great if you could provide a single zip archive of the 5 files from the FAT partition - it would be way less than 100MB. Re-imaging each time is so destructive (you lose all your settings, databases, thumbnails etc.) not to mention unnecessary, that I'm sure it puts off a lot of potential testers.

Windows will only ever "see" the first partition of a removable disk.

Also it seems like NFS may be "slow to start" - if I look in Videos -> Files immediately after a boot, a lot of files and folders are missing, but they appear a minute or two later. Scanning also returns bogus results, possibly due to flaky NFS. However, once NFS has sorted itself out (ie. several minutes after startup), scanning runs fine.

I notice there was an update to libnfs on 9 June... could this be related?

Trying out arm_freq=900 with the latest build (r11290). Looks good so far. Snappier, until I load several thumbs in a row. Haven't tried dolby/dts passthrough as yet. Also, the issues with python being in the wrong directory whilst building were fixed one or two builds ago, which is nice.

One problem I'm having is, even though I set resolution to 1280x720 in system settings, it keeps starting up at 1280x768. While this is reflected correctly in the status, under system settings it still says 1280x720, as I had left it earlier. I need to change it to some other res and then back to 1280x720 in order for it to work. Anybody else have this issue?

EDIT: Artwork scrambling persists, but it looks like only for wallpaper artwork for some tv shows. Which is an improvement.

Same here.
I use a lower resolution on my fullhd display and after every restart it changes to 1920x1080, so I need to change it as you mentioned.

@sraue

Could this (Issue #601) be included in the near future?

Because most of us would like to use it with this nano adapter as it is the smallest and best choice for the RPi.
