Going AWOL for a while so here is the last build (from me) for the summer. Have a nice summer everyone! Big Grin

Updated Helix build, XBMC master from July 11 + newclock3 commits.

XBMC Master:
Master changelog
NB! Videodb updated 86 -> 87

• [rbp] Make cachemembuffersize default depend on memory size (256/512)
• [rbp] Make gui limit default to 720 when GPU memory is limited (<128)
• add a callback class for unrarlib rather than calling into guilib direct from UnrarXLib
• armv6: Acceleration for vector_fmul_window and butterflies_float used in AAC

With these new features, if cachemembuffersize is set to -1 (default in this build) it will default to 2MB if you have a 256 Pi and 20MB if you have a 512 Pi (gui limit will also default to different settings: 720/1080).
Your own settings in userdata/advancedsettings.xml will still be set.

GPU firmware from July 05 included

To install XBMC build, SSH to Pi:
wget -O xbmc-14-20140711-nc3.tar.gz http://goo.gl/0fc8QE --no-check-certificate
pv xbmc-14-20140711-nc3.tar.gz | tar xzf - -C /home/pi/.upgrade
sudo cp /home/pi/.upgrade/xbmc-14-20140711-nc3/{fixup_x.dat,start_x.elf} /boot
ln -sfn /home/pi/.upgrade/xbmc-14-20140711-nc3/xbmc-bcm /home/pi/.xbmc-current
sudo reboot

See post #1 for more info (testing, different players etc)

Hi there - per the thread below, the pvr.wmc addon was recently updated. It sounds like miappa typically would handle compiling it for rpi, but I hear he might be out.

Thoughts on how/who can help compile the latest pvr.wmc addon for rpi? More details below:

And thx to you and popcornmix for all the good work.

I just updated the latest testversion since somewhere end of May.
And it's really smoother, faster and better then before.

Except that I'm stuck in a power-off/reboot loop.
Any idea's?
