Seems to be having issue with software mounted nfs shares, not sure why its only become an issue with the latest update. Could you try playing the file back locally either the sdcard or from a usb drive. Advise if there is still an issue when hardware acceleration is enabled?
If this helps, you should consider kernel mounted nfs shares via fstab; as it gives better throughput. If you advise the device the nfs shares are on, I try provide further instruction for setting these up.
After making my first post in this forum just a bit ago and then reading this discussion, I noticed that my debug log also has several “failed to configure renderer” as well. Perhaps my issue is similar(?) as my problem started pretty recently as well. Here is the post:
Hi Sam - sorry for any confusion but mine isn’t involving a Vero 4K. I saw that this post discussed rendering problems, saw the reference to something in the logs above that I have a number of in my logs, and thought they might be related. But, I will add that mine is a relatively new occurrence (like in this discussion) in that the movies that I am having problems with now played perfectly prior to this issue (They played great approximately 2 weeks ago - not sure when the problem occurred after that but their not playing great now).
Hope I didn’t hijack this thread. Not my intention.
Now I have tested the same video locally via USB hard drive and get the same problem when I have HW acceleration enabled.
It becomes black screen, buffer and changes the sound of the amplifier from DTS to stereo.
I set some update packages “on hold” and updated only the rest. I need to confirm it, but it seems to me as if the problem is not in the “mediacenter” packages, rather in the “kernel” or “vero-image” package.
To be precise:
I thought the problem would result in updating the mediacenter, but as I “apt-mark hold” the packages containing “mediacenter” in its name and updated the remaining packages the error occured anyway. So maybe it’s one of the other packages.
