Tvheadend (server) is working kind of strage in latest build. When you install it, its not starting, rebooting doesnt change anything except the displayed "connection lost" from the client.
When you start it manually from its folder its starting fine, but the webinterface is protected with a username and password because oft a missing file in /storage/.hts/tvheadend/accesscontrol/. If you create it you can access the webinterface. I dont know if server and client have the same Version everytime but if it is so, server is running Version 6 and client Version 8.

Greetings Shadowghost

Edit: used build was 0916b

Hi,

with #0919 AC3-passthrough is still not working for me with DVDPlayer when watching DVDs.
With OMXPlayer AC3-passthrough is working perfectly.

Thanks

Do you get this effect from tv recordings? If so a sample file that does it would be useful.

will have to check as it is not very easy to reproduce it happens on channels with bad reception so it seems like the last two builds don't recover from error in a stream.

OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140913233905-r19230-g9ab2c87
OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140911211726-r19214-gebd5882

but is fine i.e. recovers very quickly on
OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140906223038-r19194-gd66494b

i use standard hw acceleration i.e. omxplayer..

Can you identify the exact build that introduced the problem?

OpenELEC Helix build: #0920
I think I found a bug:

Set as follow:
System > Settings > Audio output > output configuration = Fixed
Limit sampling rate = 44.1 kHz
then back to
System > Settings > Audio output > output configuration = Best match or Optimized
Now play with DVDplayer an HD music (88.2, 96 or 192 kHz), the output will be 44.1 kHz (read on the AVR)

If you choose 88.2 as fixed instead 44.1 you will have the output at 88.2 kHz.

Could you test and confirm?
Paplayer plays OK for the frequency (but I have another issue, see separate thread)
There is no OMXplayer in this version

Config, audio player only:
HDD <USB> Sitecom 4port powered mini-hub <USB> RPi <HDMI> Denon AVR-2313 <HDMI-DVI> 22"Monitor

tried all the builds.. apologies for taking so long..

OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140908214255-r19204-g034b531 is the last good one i could test.

OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140910002305-r19210-g2d9c62b i cannot test as it fails to load addons.

OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Milhouse-20140910222156-r19214-gebd5882 exhibits the problem when there is a glitch with livetv.

So issue must be with one of the following..

OpenELEC:
xf86-video-intel: update to xf86-video-intel-2.99.916
glibc: update to glibc-2.20
projects/Cuboxi/patches/linux: add upstream patches
projects/Cuboxi/linux: switch to CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY, this speedup the build esp for Cubox/HB i1

XBMC:
PVR: initial support for sub channel numbers (PR:5290, 2 commits, 16 files changed)
[pvr] fix destructor visibility to allow polymorphic deletion (PR:5338, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
DXVA: fixes related to ffmpeg (PR:5335, 3 commits, 2 files changed)
[curl] redact effective URL (PR:5337, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
[omxplayer] Don't flush queued data on general reset (PR:5240, 1 commit, 2 files changed)

newclock4:
egl: Treat unknown display aspect ratio as square pixel

OpenELEC:
projects/Cuboxi/linux: build SGTL5000 codec statically in kernel, cleanup kernel config, add CONFIG_FB_MXC_LDB
ppp: disable PPP_FILTER support, this fixes building if /usr/include/pcap-bpf.h is found, todo: move libpcap to unofficial
service.openelec.settings: update to service.openelec.settings-0.4.3
curl: update to curl-7.38.0

XBMC:
fix unregiser of observer/observable (PR:5347, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
pvr: avoid closing stream players on channel switch (PR:5342, 1 commit, 1 file changed)
DXVA: fixes related to ffmpeg 2nd. (PR:5346, 2 commits, 1 file changed)

newclock4:
squash: don't update originaldts when marked as invalid

Custom:
Updated xbmc-pvr-addons

I suspect this is the only commit that could cause the issue.
I've added a (temporary) commit to revert this just to confirm this is the issue. Please report back after next Milhouse build.
