OpenELEC Beta 4.95.1

OpenELEC Beta 4.95.1

Postby vpeter » Fri Nov 07, 2014 1:17 am

After official release of OpenELEC Beta - Freescale iMX6 ARM Version:4.95.1 it's time to make my custom image for TBS Matrix system.

OpenELEC-imx6.arm-4.95.1.tar: https://drive.bitcasa.com/send/qBZq21Pe ... wQkBHCauvr

Inside MY archive not official one you have a folder called TBS-Matrix-MfgTool2. Inside just click MfgTool2-reinstall.bat to completely reinstall openelec on a device. Or click MfgTool2-update.bat to just update the system and you settings remain. Of couse you can also update running openelec with putting tar achieve into Update folder on samba share.

One important change is about how different drivers are used. Instead of having multiple images which has different drivers I combine them all in one image. After installation default drivers are used from kernel.
I include 2 extra drivers. First one is some experimental driver for TBS USB based tuners from here:
https://www.mail-archive.com/linux-medi ... 73604.html

Second one are drivers from ljalves media_build as I already use in the past.

To select different driver than default kernel based I created one simple addon found under Programs menu. It is called "Extra drivers selector". Just select one type and confirm with OK. After reboot the system those drivers are effective.

This image contains Kodi/Helix. If somene really, really want XBMC/Gotham let me know and I will build one.
But future is with Helix so don't expect much support in Gotham anymore. Like interlaced video issue which was not fix yet.

Hope this image will be useful...

Nothing that I can fix. This card uses some proprietary part which is available on for x86 32/64 bit. No arm support. Only TBS can help us here.

Looking good ... just upgraded from the previous Gotham version (flashed in to and booting from eMMC) and no immediate problems - many, many thanks.

However, there's still a problem repainting the 'Home' screen when returning from System -> OpenELEC.

Then reset Openelec settings somewhere under it's menu. I think you are using Gotham addon settings on Helix which obviously doesn't work.

... but it behaved exactly the same when I was running Gotham.

... and it behaves exactly the same after OpenELEC -> System -> Reset System Settings to defaults

Will double check at home. But I'm sure it should not behave like that ;)

Now I see the problem. Funny thing ;) It paints only some part of the screen because algorithmdirtyregions is set to 1 (Union) in advancedsettings.xml to minimize cpu usage. If set to 3 (Whole Screen) then whole screen is repainted.

So everything is ok because we want lower cpu usage on this small system. But interesting is that RPi doesn't have set that...

On Gotham I had different issue I think.
