Are you saying that the nornal openelec builds are not running with the GUI at 1080p?

I'm running build r12195 and the system info page seems to think its running at 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz and the TV thinks its on a 1080p source?

As far as I am aware it was fairly recent that they started upscaling the menus.

I am rocking r12015 and I pretty sure its has naitive 1080p, also best for wifi and CEC compatibility for my setup. I try pretty much every build but this one has been favourite so far.

I will probably stick with it for a while until problems with omxplayer improve.

Seems fishy considering the most current build is

OpenELEC-RPi.arm-devel-20121020212708-r12220.tar.bz2

http://sources.openelec.tv/tmp/image/openelec-rpi/

I would call it something other than an updated build number like try my custom port of it, anything but adding a number to their building scheme.

I was pointed to get build from there also, but there is also here "http://openelec.thestateofme.com/" and it is update more often and has new builds.

I was confused which is 'official'?

Same here didn't even know about that one. More releases isn't necessarily a good thing and something to think about. If you push an update every other week how much testing goes into the product. This is just from personal experience with flavors of Linux I tend to stay with the one that doesn't update constantly. They seem be more stable in the end. The only updates to really be concerned with are security patches if they want to push one every half hour fine but if it works don't try to fix it.

That is all just my opinion don't take it to heart if you have another but I think it's something that should really be considered for new users. Review what is changing and decide if you really need it.

Thanks for the posts though I haven't done much with XBMC on the Pi now I know more than I did yesterday :)

Would be interesting to see how stable a 1080p GUI is with build r12268, as this build fixes a lot of the OMX resource/memory errors that forced the developers to upscale the GUI in the first place.

Very nice - the GUI is noticeably sharper. Unfortunately it makes it even more obvious how horribly pixelated fanart now is...

Hello,

My TV resolution is currently 1680x1050. Using official image it leads in upscaling from 720p and the gui is totally blurry as you know.

My query is: Should I re-compile my own build for 1680x1050 or will the one with 1080p gui work fine?

In fact, I don't even know how the scaling works and I wonder if using 1080p build with 1680x1050 TV means downscaling from 1080p instead of showing native 1680x1050.

Thank you in advance.
