Re: DTS-MA passthrough

I'd also like to use DTS-HD MA and Dolby TruHD bitstreaming (Passthrough).

Could someone tell me, where is the already existing Passthrough code (e.g. for Dolby Digital)? Is it in omxplayer source, or the recently opened libraries, or in the closed source firmware?

Thank you in advance.

Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

Disregard my previous comment about black screens during playback, it is an issue of my monitor (Samsung 2243SW connected via a HDMI to DVI adapter and a DVI cable). I've reconnected the Pi to my Panasonic TV via HDMI, and there were no black screens during playback. Even srt subtitles work, which d...

Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

xbmc runs OK on raspbian. I've tried with the 192 MB memory split, but it didn't work out, xbmc stucks in menus, needs to be killed via ssh. So, it should be run with the 128 MB memory split, as in the instruction. I have lots of black screens with some media, even with the default color depth.

Re: Instructions for building XBMC for Raspbian

Build was successful. config.status was created at 11:38 am, xbmc.bin was created 10:41 pm, last write to system dir was 11:44 pm, so about 12 hours. Build instructions were fine.

Re: SD Card performance in R-Pi onboard slot

I have a Raspbian image installed on a Samsung MicroSDHC 8GByte Class 10 card. It provided 4.5 MByte/sec read and write sec before the update. I did rpi-update Today, and now it goes so much faster: [email protected]:~# hdparm -tT /dev/mmcblk0 /dev/mmcblk0: Timing cached reads: 232 MB in 2.01 seconds = 11...

Re: bonnie++: SD-card / USB-stick / NFS comparison

I've tested an 2.5" HDD via USB, plugged into a powered USB HUB, and both linear read and write was about 20 MByte/sec. So my USB Pendrive seems to have some kind of problem that it can only write 5 MByte/sec. We can say, that the SD Card interface is limited to about 4.5 MByte/sec, no matter how fa...

Re: New Raspbian "Pisces" Image

add /opt/vc/lib into ld.so.conf.d, please. I take it this will fix the hello_pi problems I reported above? Can you point me to where this file is located... I tried to use find -name to locate it without success. Thanks in advance! This adds the libraries in /opt/vc/lib so the system finds them. (c...

Re: Setting up HDMI output

Testing it right now with the following confg.txt (same as when the problem occured):

hdmi_drive=1
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=0x3a
disable_overscan=1

uptime is now 13 minutes, running pisces, X, Midori, scrolling in webpages, and only 2 blanking occured. So I cannot reproduce it the same way any more.

Re: Setting up HDMI output

That is a good option. Is this newest loader/firmware the one which displays a colorful screen just before linux starts to boot? Was it released 1-2 days ago? I've had one issue with it using pisces raspbian. I was set up to 1680x1050 in config.txt, and it booted fine, but every couple of sec the sc...

Re: Setting up HDMI output

I have a Samsung 2243SW monitor (22", 16:9, 1920x1080). I connected it with HDMI-DVI cable. The Pi booted up, the picture was small, resolution on the monitor 1600x1200, the Pi framebuffer was a bit smaller, some very odd numbers. I quickly runned tvservice and saw that the monitor was missing the 1...

Re: No signal to monitor

Fedora didn't boot for me either. Since I already had Openelec XBMC, and Debian running on Pi, we ruled that the Fedora one is somehow faulty.

Re: Just got delivery from Farnell's new batch

I've registered interest at both Farnell and RS beginning of March, got my pre-order link on 4 March, 2012 from Farnell. Got my Pi on 29 May 2012 from Farnell together with the T-shirt.

I've got one e-mail from RS in April, and an order-link on 30 May 2012.
