Re: My Keyboard.xml not working under Openelec Rpi -Tried this and manual edit of xml using showkey.

Summary is my keyboard.xml works on XBMC windows and Raspbmc but not in Openelec, could it be related to region settings although all seem set the same in my case?

what for a remote you use? can you do a
Code: Select all
cat /proc/bus/input/devices | paste
and paste the link here? what you want to change, what is workin, what not?

Many thanks for your reply.
My Remote sends keypresses to a USB radio receiver. Then I adjust keymap of keyboard.xml to suit, this works under windows and raspbmc when saving keyboard.xml to userdata/keymaps.

Device output below:
I: Bus=0003 Vendor=06e7 Product=0004 Version=0100
N: Name="SIMPLE DEVICES MediaRemote USB Receiver"
P: Phys=usb-bcm2708_usb-1.2/input0

B: KEY=10000 7 ff9f207a c14057ff febeffdf ffefffff ffffffff fffffffe

I love how well OpenELEC works and many thanks to sraue and others here for keeping the build updated and helping those of us who have been away from the penguin a wee bit too long :)

How do you overclock in Openelec? Doing it the regualr way causes it to not boot. Even just having a blank config.txt file in the SD card under windows makes the RPi not get past the rainbow square. Am I supposed to put the config.txt in a network share? There isn't one named System so i'm not sure where to put it. Also this is with the new loader files, with the stock loader.bin/bootcode.bin etc it goes to the Openelec logo and then black screen.

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?


Was having similar issues. Had to find the mode for the right resolution and added it to config.txt in /flash

hdmi_mode=85

I used tvservice to find the right number.

Once I set that - now on each reboot it comes up with at the right resolution. Before XBMC showed the right resolution, but playing a video told a different story. 4:3 was wide screen and the 16:9 was cropped to half the screen. I had to go into Setting - Video and change it to the same resolution and then it'd work right. Said I was at what I wanted too, but obviously was not.

Right, so I thought of that right away and I guess I'll do it, but frankly, it seems like the setting in the UI is not checked at startup, and it should be.

I have the same opinion. This has to be adressed first, unfortunately I can't programm openELEC so I can just wait...

Where do you get the latest builds? Openelecs daily builds are still only at r11286

Anyone got a link?

Most people will be building from the git source themselves I guess, although looking at the commits after 11286 I'm not sure how much is pi specific.

yes i and others are building from git source, very simple really if you know your way around git.
Lots of the updates are RPi specific, but they get build in updates directly from xbmc-beta commits aswell which include more stabillity for raspi, (since xbmc is trying to get RasPi out of the beta git onto the main)

Not used Git Hub much in the past, but this works for me...

If you have already cloned the Git, navigate to that folder and run:

Code: Select all
# PROJECT=RPi ARCH=arm make clean

# git pull

# PROJECT=RPi ARCH=arm make release


How long it takes to compile will depend on your computer. Once its finished you'll have a tarball in the Target folder with the new release which includes a script that automates the SD card flashing.

SD card performance increased from 8 to 18MB/s in the r11312 build with sdhci-bcm2708 update:
root ~ # hdparm -t /dev/mmcblk0p2
/dev/mmcblk0p2:
Timing buffered disk reads: 56 MB in 3.03 seconds = 18.49 MB/sec

GUI now reads directories with more files much faster :D

I've just tried r11312 and TV Series is still not showing banner and thumbnails correctly. When the TV database is first scraped the screenshots for recently added episodes showing in the main menu for TV Series are correct. Then if I down-arrow to "Title" to view the series in Big List view the banners appear correctly initially. But then if I opt to change the view to "Thumbnail" and then to "Wide Icons" things start to go wrong. The banners start to get corrupted and seem to want to display as portrait rather than landscape orientation. Then if I escape back to the main menu then the screenshots for recently added episodes are also starting to get corrupted. All releases I have tried have been like this.

I'm also finding that navigating around the menus generally is very laggy. Would a faster sd card help here - I'm using a class 4 at the moment?

Hi,
Problem I have is that when I start video from XBMC my screen on TV goes mad, same thing on projector. Picture is likeout of sync moving fast. everything is fine until I play movie, or video from youtube.

I use composit output.

Anyone has idea what it can be.

Thanks,
Igor

i'm having the same issue also using a class 4 card, i've tried deleting both the thumbnail folders and the textures file the only thing that might be different is that mine is reading the thumbs from a mysql database.

Hi,

Another short update (r11315):

http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/op ... 15.tar.bz2
to update a older build without reinstalling: http://wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title ... g_OpenELEC

  • updated XBMC many thanks to 'gimli'
  • SD-card updates to the kernel for faster transferrates see viewtopic.php?f=63&t=5057
  • updated CEC daemon many thanks to 'olajep'

the changes to the kernel needs updated bootloaderfiles which you can find in the build in the folder 3rdpart/bootloader. This you can update locally via Windows/Linux or via ssh:
  • login via ssh to your Raspi:
    Code: Select all
    ssh root@<ipaddress>
  • remount /flash r/w:
    Code: Select all
    mount -o remount,rw /flash
  • from your linux system copy the files via ssh/scp to the Raspi:
    Code: Select all
    scp 3rdparty/bootloader/* root@<ipaddress>:/flash

please test your SD cards, i *hope* this patch fixes some issues with not working cards too, so please test your working and not working cards and report back.

thanks
Stephan

SD card performance (Transcend 8GB Class 10) is better than in previous builds (I've been following the SD card thread - very interesting!). Testing with "hdparm -tT /dev/mmcblk0" (non-destructive so safe for anyone else to try!) results in the following:
Code: Select all
Before (r 11286):
 Timing cached reads:    52 MB in  2.02 seconds =  25.77 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  26 MB in  3.11 seconds =   8.37 MB/sec

After (r 11315):
 Timing cached reads:    66 MB in  2.05 seconds =  32.13 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  54 MB in  3.05 seconds =  17.72 MB/sec


So double the performance - probably due to the clock doubling from 25MHz to 50MHz as the default in this new build. Excellent work all concerned! :)

One immediately obvious regression is the CPU load while the GUI is idle - it's pegged at 80% in this build, when previously it would tick over at 3-5%. All I've done is boot this build, then let it sit at the opening menu for 5 minutes but still the CPU is hammering away and I don't know why. I briefly enabled Debugging to confirm there is nothing being logged so it doesn't look as though it's busy doing work.

1) Probably an issue with XBMC (and I noticed this in the previous build also), but 1920x1080 fanart is displayed with a thin black bar (about 20 pixels wide or so) running vertically down the right hand side - it looks like the image has been "cropped"... 1280x720 fanart is displayed correctly (ie. uncropped, without the black bar).

2) Continuing to get NFS related errors in this build (I think mempiz might look at these next week?) - I allowed the GUI to go idle while browsing thumbnails in Movies, then resumed browsing:

For some reason it has now decided to cache the fanart for "The Adventures of Tintin" against "The A-Team"... NFS failures seem to cause weird and unexpected results! :)
