#818

We need to refine the CSetting so we don’t hit a bad default for non-GLES platforms. Was discussed in Comms earlier today

#819

I’ve been seeing issues when using multiple profiles. (set up to use a separate Kids profile, both master and Kids connecting to mysql (mariadb) on the server). I suspect these are Kodi upstream issues, and not specific to the vero4k, but thought I’d mention them.

  1. Sometimes (usually?), when logging out of a profile with the last few builds, it just hangs and never gets to the login screen. (remote is dead in that situation). ssh’ing in to the box and doing a reboot clears it up. I haven’t attempted to capture a log yet, but can if you want one.

  2. Often after switching profiles (including after a reboot), a number of the menu options start appearing blank. They work if you select them and can guess from the position or other context what they represent, but they’re empty. For example, the pop-up menu when selecting an item, or the left-hand popup you get when navigating to the left (or top) of the screen) the one with the options for changing views, sorting, etc). This can usually be fixed by manually reloading the skin as far as I can tell. Problem appears to occur in every skin I’ve played with, including Aeon Nox, OSMC, Estuary Mod. I’ve noticed this particular issue on an android device as well, so think it’s a general Kodi 18 issue, unless I’ve been doing something very wrong with how I set up profiles.


#820

I tried upgrading to a nightly build (from 2018-10-1) following the directions in the first post. I failed the upgrade due to hash mismatch (while running sudo apt-get dist-upgrade). Do you need the details? Or should I just wait and retry the steps sometime later?


#822

The latest build is giving mismatch errors. A new version will be uploaded today to fix this.


#823

I know this build is broken, but for the ignoramus’ amongst us…what the hell is a quantisation range switch?


#824

Thanks, @gmc!


#825

@gb160 haha. I’m getting a nose bleed just trying to follow instructions on the first post.


#826

Just don’t touch the flux capacitor!


#827

@gb160 But I want to buy that sports almanac! Or the hoverboard at the very least :smile:


#828

@gmc Nice. I can confirm that steps for upgrading to a nightly build works as of now :smile: Thank you.


#829

Running 17.8-369. Viewing a standard-definition video, decoded in software, upscaling to 4K. Something doesn’t look quite right with the Lanczos3 scaling algorithm - weirdly blocky effect. And if you zoom up to full screen, the video actually goes jerky (despite CPU usage being fairly low).

Would logs be useful?

#831

I’ve an issue displaying BD menus, now. I’ve ripped to disk a BD for TV tuning/calibration which contains a set of test pictures and videos for such purpose.
Some days ago I still could display the simple BD menu but now this is broken although a timer progresses in the right top corner:

now hanging after start of the item

log set:

#832

I’ve noticed a minor cosmetic issue in the Kodi Leia builds.

The help text at the bottom of the screen in Settings > System > Display is wrong for three of the items:

  • Force RGB Output: Maximum wait time for network
  • Lock HDMI HPD: Set the maximum time to wait for the network to come up…
  • Mute HDMI audio output: Virtual filesystems

Here are some screenshots:

I am using a fresh .kodi profile, and have checked in a couple of the skins (incl. Estuary), and the same issue is apparent in all skins.

Very minor issue, but thought I would feed back.


#833

Probably an off-by-one issue in strings.po.

Sam


#834

Looks to me like vero3-114-add-additional-display-options.patch will need some re-work, due to the following upstream leia change:

Strings ID’s: 39011, 39012 & 39013 are now used by vanilla kodi, so I think the patch needs altering to use a different (unused) set of ID’s.


#835

Yep


#836

Thanks, will update the patch
