    Oef. Looks like some no-name exotic model.

    Look at the thread mentioned by bubblegum57 and try some of those, see which one works best. You could always remap with the keymap editor in Kodi afterwards

    If you were already able to write the image to usb all you need to do is boot from it.

    The storage partition will be resized on first boot and you will be good to go.

    I updated my existing 8.90.6 (adamg's dev) version, which has several a/v issues still (see adamg's release thread for details).


    First results for this build of yours are positive: The (very annoying) sound stuttering seem to be resolved!

    Video still stalls for some time at the start of some HD and SD streams, but no more sound stuttering...


    Thank you afl1 for your efforts. Much appreciated!

    In your log I see lot of CVideoPlayer::CheckContinuity - update correction causing audio out of sync. It looks like performance issue. But I can't see audio debug log. You have allow in Logging specific log: Audio and A/V timing.

    Live TV is more time sensitive for decoding and it need better data caching, buffering and faster data transfer. I ported some kernel tweaking from kszaq kernel. My testings shows very positive performance improvement in fixing playback issue. You have to wait for new version.

    Thank you for looking into this :thumbup:

    No, imo the picture definately has a 'tremble'. Not everyone might notice but to me the picture is not 'steady' for lack of a better word. That and the frequent freezes on playback start made me revert. I will leave 90.6 on a testsystem in case GDPR-2 decides to look at this and asks feedback.

    I see the same effects on 8.90.6.

    This, and picture freezing/audio dropping that weren't there in 8.90.5.


    The new kernel just isnt there yet in my opinion. Gone back to 8.90.5 and living with the occasional lockup when stopping local content.


    Really hope the a/v moves forward in future builds. Right now the best version would be an alpha2 kodi version with kszaqs kernel... Will be following progress if and when it moves on...

    Thanks for a new release.

    I updated from the 8.90.5 release and tried a clean install.

    Unfortunately, the new kernel still has some a/v issues. I tested for a couple of hours. It's better than the test releases, but for livetv theres still a/v regression to the point that it becomes unusable.


    Symptoms:


    - Picture will start frozen for some time (sound continues), especially with hd content. Sd has the frozen picture on start, be it less frequent

    - Both HD and SD show artifacts and/or picture will freeze for some moments. Sometimes sound drops out.


    Reverting to 8.90.5 gives a perfect picture and livetv starts fluidly.


    If you want me to do more specific tests or provide logs or more info please tell me. I will do what i can to help troubleshoot this issue.


    Thanks for your efforts so far and have a perfect weekend!

    test release updated, module issue with wetek should be resolved now, wrxtasy sound patch has been removed also


    see above, the Netflix issue is a problem with the addon and the developer needs to update it, latest releases can be found here

    Installed your new test release.

    Sound hickups and livetv image freezes are still present. Might be the same issue as described here(?):8.2.4 MR audio issue



    Funny thing is i thought SMB was broken in this test release, but another issue i reported with firewall profiles being swapped seem to be corrected (where public profile is actually for public and not for a home profile as in the prev rel. ;) )


    Cheers,

    Don't have any more time this weekend to test further, what i did notice after some time, livetv image totally freezes.

    It does that comsistently after an arbitrary amount of time.


    Kids will be demanding my time this weekend, but i sure will be following progress.


    Thank you again for the work you put into this project, i think it's amazing what has been accomplished already!
