RE: 20141226 (1.0.9) - RC Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
Another big improvement, thanks! A long way to go but, heading in the right direction. I'm using Plex as my interface and after some quick testing I'm now able to (mostly) pause, fwd, rew and change audio tracks without the movie completely restarting. I can also restart a movie where I left off previously. I could do none of those things in the last firmware. If there are micro-stutters I'm not seeing them, though I haven't watched more than about five minute of straight video at a time so far this morning. I'll do some more testing and report any major issues that pop up. Now let's get HD audio, Android 5.0 and 24fps going!Smile I would also like to see a "Zoom" feature enabled. Maybe that's a Plex, Android thing.

yes I know, but they put more things in the logs unlike the previous version, so perhaps useful information to analyze the bug

but see this http://forum.openhourlab.com/showthread....01#pid3501

EDIT : NOP, green screen still here, but it takes longer to come

Don't think it's recognizes as such... a bug that is.
But stick to the original thread for any further discussions.

RE: 20141226 (1.0.9) - RC Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
This release, excuse me, sucks. I connect my OHC to a Sony 4K TV via Onkyo 3030. After this firmware, the TV seems lost the sync signal from time to time (about every few secnds!!). It gives me black screen and then I have to wait for the synchronization for the screen to come back. It happens even I am navigating on just the desktop. So at least to me, this version is simply unusable.

-------

Edit: after a cold boot, this problem seems much reduced. But it is still reproducible, e.g. if I click the All Apps icon, the screen still goes to black and wait for sync.

Playback from Samba still has random stuttering. 3D ISO seems have problems, will update this after more tests have been done.

Some ones balls are of the purest crystal which leads to Dutch Divination.

Y'know, I think, I think that a week from now, you'll be less in the mood for being amusing.
