Hi all,

I have problems with the player dvdplayer.
When I start to watch a movie, about 20-30 minutes later, the pc restarts.
If I check the log (xbmc.old.log) there is no error. (I use <loglevel hide = "false">3</ loglevel>)

If I use mplayer as player (editing playercorefactory.xml), the video plays correctly.

I tried to disable hardware acceleration and VAAPI, but I have the same problems.

My setup is as follows:
x86-PC (xbmcbuntu 13.0 os:Ubuntu 14.04 64bit, kernel: 3.13.0-37-generic, videocard: Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (ivy bridge) and xbmc:13.2

My extra parameters for the kernel are:
i915.i915_enable_rc6=0 intel_idle.max_cstate=0

Anyone have any idea that I could be happening?

Thanks!

No. Looks like a hardware issue, most likely memory.

Audio Engine: SPDIF has only 2 pcm channels. DTS, AC3 are encoded via those 2 channels. It's obviously clear that you are not able to change Speaker Layout when running via SPDIF.

But it is not strange that with mplayer to work properly?
Since I have mplayer as external player (one week), has not been returned to restart.

Hi,

I used memtest to test the memory. Apparently memory works correctly.
I have also tried vlc and the computer does not restart. Frown

Yeah - then bad for you. No one can help you without proper dmesg / Debug Log / anything else.

xbmc is an OpenGL Application which does hw decoding + OpenGL rendering. It puts obviously more pressure on the hardware then some desktop players.

Audio Engine: SPDIF has only 2 pcm channels. DTS, AC3 are encoded via those 2 channels. It's obviously clear that you are not able to change Speaker Layout when running via SPDIF.

When the problem occurs, the computer restarts.
I attach the logs (dmesg & xbmc.log.1 & xorg.conf.1).

dmesg:
Xorg.0.log.old:
xbmc.old.log:

The mplayer works from within xbmc (playerfactory.xml). So I thought I could be dvdplayer problem.

Thanks,

aplay -l please

It looks like an absolute misconfiguration (starting with non existing audio).

your log is full of audio errors. Xbmc is not able to open an audio device....

It is true, sorry. To rule out things, I turned off the sound card.
I tried to edit the message, but it was too late.

The "correct" links are:

dmesg -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/8602758/
xorg -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/8602855/
xbmc -> http://paste.ubuntu.com/8602870/

Thanks,

Nothing - if it crashes, e.g. segfault then there should be crashlogs in your home directory.
