No problem for me since new firmware. SPMC runs fine
BUT I have an issue with my 2.5" drive : sping off spin on spin off spin on spin off spin on Angry
The same HDD runs fine on my computer and PCH A-400
Of course, same problem with all USB ports...

That's good info. Brings me to conclude the power to the USB is switched off for power conservation reasons as a legacy from android mobile. the hub either provides power or takes power control away from the android box.
There's a lot more mobile legacy setting in android that are not relevant when used as a mediaplayer, let's hope it becomes a configurable item in android 5 as that's also designed for mediaplayers.

you think a freshly launched player on a new chipset will be trouble free in the first 3 months...... and should be 'non geek' ready.... are you for real?

If you want Kodi. go to the Kodi forum and ask why they don't support the android ARM/Mali and leave it all to one brilliant guy from Belgium who runs a fork.. for free and redirecting all donations to kodi.

Yes, the success of your open system depend entirely on the goodwill and effort of a few people.. and all you do is piss on them.
Try working with people and testing step by step to get your setup in order.

Just know there are many users who get a lot more out of their openhour just because they have a different attitude.

peace.
And you think selling Alpha-Ware is ok? Then on the official website it should be mentioned that OH sells hardware and the software is in alpha stage. It's a shame today that such bananaware is usual in this business.
If I pay for a product than it should work. Point!
Sure there are the heros which are improving the software. Are they payed by OH for their hard work?

Me... I've been buying alpha ware for 25 years now.. some were dogs and some were perfect, but most just about did the job.
If you want to be a consumer, fine use your rights and only buy from where you get those rights... like if it does not work as advertised send it back.
And no.. most of them are not payed... it's called community support and development...

RE: 20141119 (1.0.7) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
OK, I decided to switch from Kodi to SPMC, because I realized only AVI's would play, MKV's and MP4's won't. So i removed SPMC, downloaded again and re-installed, now it works, but it is soo much slower. It slows down to a crawl where i change from 1 movie to another and it takes like 20 seconds to register a keypress on the remote... unusable... also when it is in this slowed-down state, if i try to play the movie it stutters and audio is echoing and stuttery

browsing the XBMC interface is much faster in the nightly build of Kodi as compared with SPMC (My database is MySQL Server on another machine)

spmc browsing is no problem for me.
which configuration are you using? which firmware? which spmc version?
maybe you can try to delete local/cache data of spmc and reboot

No speed issues here, very fast with SPMC, just video freezing at random on MKV's and MP4's. I installed via OTA so will try a re-install via USB, maybe I got a glitched download (I hope)

Why does it seem that many people are getting soo many different outcomes.
Will the OPC ever be useful. I have spent a dozen hours trying to get it to work.
The Popcorn hours work out of the box. I have been in contact with Cloud Media support and they will fully refund my OHC without a re-stocking fee (have to pay for postage).

I think many of us should return our units and stop wasting time.

Love it, PCH works out of the box Big Grin

We have the same cycle of development until the majority of issues are resolved with PCH products as this one.

Anyway duplicate accounts are not allowed so please stick to 'kostas'.

I do not have that problem with Kodi when i Enable passthrough and Pause or rewind or Fast Forward a Movie.

Ow and i have static sound only if i Enable passthrough in SPMC.

Quick questions:
- What firmware version?
- What Audio output? Default Output, spdif or HDMI bitstream?
- Amplifier model?
- What Kodi version?
- What SPMC version?
- What video you are playing? do you have the mediainfo?


- What firmware version? 1.0.7
- What Audio output? Default Output, spdif or HDMI bitstream? HDMI bitstream.
- Amplifier model? Onkyo TX-NR609.
- What Kodi version? kodi-rk3288-20141107 (the one from your website).
- What SPMC version? spmc 13.3.4_beta1 (also the one from your website).
- What video you are playing? do you have the mediainfo? MKV 720P and 1080P,
and Xvid 480P (he has that problem with all my movie's and movie formats).


Some problems i have:

When i update to 1.0.6 Beta1 with Offline Update, and my Open Hour Chameleon resets and
install Firmware 1.0.6 Beta1, and my Open Hour Chameleon is done booting, non of the update.img
or update.zip (Root) works anymore, when i put them in the root of my internal SD or external SD or
USB Stick, i can wait hours but nothing happens.

But OTA update works, then it updates to Firmware 1.0.7.

Same when i install the update.zip to Root my Open Hour Chameleon, he resets and
install Root, and my Open Hour Chameleon is done booting he is Rooted, but Offline Update true
update.img don't work anymore, have to use OTA update.


So flashed Firmware 1.0.7 on SD-Card with Win32DiskImager to see if it works then, but the same
happens cannot Root my Open Hour Chameleon, he won't install the update.zip to Root my Open
Hour Chameleon.

So can you guys fix this BIG bug.

Thanks.


UPDATE: After powering off the Open Hour Chameleon with
update.zip still on my internal SD-Card and powering him back on i get a
window where he ask if i want to update my Open Hour Chameleon and
now he is Rooted :-)

But still a strange problem.
