RE: OPEN HOUR Chameleon Android Framerate Sync
I'm thinking that the 'patches' are in the new firmware and not the SDK as I would imagine that would be out at the time 5.0 is released. Perhaps behind the scenes RK have felt the pressure and put the resource on the 'patches' first, as it was taking too long to try and resolve everything into a OS update that would bring its own issues. But that's just conjecture.

Anyway to me its all moot just want those whom are unhappy re HD audio to be happy, no use for it myself, and 23.976 and other fps to be stutter free for everyone's benefit. The two biggies if you like.

OHC > HDMI > TV (Panasonic 42G20)
Downmix stereo using standard Kodi(MC) 15.2 no hware/acc OK
Downmix stereo 1.0.40/RK Kodi(RKlib) 15.2 infrequent audio gaps hware/acc OK

No DTS downmix available for inbuilt eMC player

Gecko> HDMI > TV (Panasonic 42G20)
Downmix stereo using Gecko Kodi 15.0 OK
Downmix using inbuilt MediaCentre OK

RE: OPEN HOUR Chameleon Android Framerate Sync
For me biggest problem is HW decoding. Maybe this will be better too? Now I have smoother playback without it in SPMC 14.2. Maybe KODI will support passthrough over S/PDIF? Of course all this fixes are very important for many customers. At all this is good news!

RE: OPEN HOUR Chameleon Android Framerate Sync
It's 'O' on a keyboard during playback. You can then see if the player is keeping up with the file fps or dropping frames. Short-sighted and left my glasses in the car so hard for me to read.

You can get it on the OHC remote by pressing the menu button during playback not enter. Dont have the Gecko remote to test.

yes this happens with SPMC. I guess in Kodi needs
to use the addon Keymap Editor and then it will work
when i press the menu button, right?

RE: OPEN HOUR Chameleon Android Framerate Sync
never used it in Kodi so I don't know.. maybe debug needs to be on in Kodi.

RE: OPEN HOUR Chameleon Android Framerate Sync
In Kodi you have to press i key on the keyboard to get the overlayed audio/framerate/playback information.

No idea why SPMC has the menu button assigned to this function and Kodi hasn't, but with the i key on the air remote I can get it shown (and hidden again).

I think its possible to edit the userdata keymaps in Kodi to add this function.

RE: OPEN HOUR Chameleon Android Framerate Sync
I was hopeful we would get a beta before the chinese holiday....

This is what I got, after querying Cloud Media on the recent videos posted:

Dear Alexandre,

Thank you for contacting Cloud Media Sales Team.

Our team are still working with Rockchip to stabilize that build. They said will give us another update this week before they go for 1~8 Oct China long holiday.

Once we received the new patch, we will do integration and QA and if the build is good, we will release to forum. If there are still major bugs found, we will need to wait for them to come back from holiday to fix that.

Thank you for your patient on this.

RE: OPEN HOUR Chameleon Android Framerate Sync
Yep its already been reported in the Information thread:
http://forum.openhourlab.com/showthread....48#pid7548

So near we can nearly touch it! Many of us have show great patience awaiting it, another fortnight whilst they fix the bugs contained in those fixes is fine for me. Last thing we want is to rush release a fix that has new bugs, has not been QA/QC'd, and gives the booboys another chance to be petty. QA/QC involves around 3 days of constant play and full downgrade and upgrade through all firmware releases.
