Freezes After Seek

Reposting here, as I’ve learned quite a bit since my original post – and I posted it in the wrong forum.

I’m running into an issue where playback freezes after I use an “Up Arrow” seek. I’ve confirmed that it happens on multiple Odroid N2’s running CoreELEC 9.2 (completely fresh installs). The problem does not occur on the latest Kodi for Windows. I’ve included full logs and the test video, which was encoded using the same settings as the release group Tigole (or as close as I could get it).

Disabling Hardware Acceleration removes the problem, but breaks full HEVC playback support, so that’s not a solution… Updating to latest Nightlies has the same problem

I’ve also tested the solution I’ve seen mentioned in various posts for CoreELEC:
echo 16 > /sys/module/amvdec_h265/parameters/dynamic_buf_num_margin
echo 12 > /sys/module/amvdec_h265/parameters/dynamic_buf_num_margin
echo 18 > /sys/module/amvdec_h265/parameters/dynamic_buf_num_margin

None of those had any impact. Oddly, if I recreate a 10 minute “Up Arrow” seek by pressing the “Right Arrow” multiple times, there is no freeze.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Any ideas?

It’s a kernel issue that we have already fixed in our experimental kernel, unfortunately there is no ETA yet as to when we will move to it.

Thanks! Is there a beta?

A beta of what? Matrix is not even at Alpha stage yet.

Oh I see. It will be fixed in the next full Kodi iteration (Matrix)? Any workarounds in the meantime? Worst case, I plan to remap the Up/Down Arrows to duplicate Left/Right in the short-term

You can install our nightlies as this is where the experimental kernel will be released first.

But this specific fix is not rolled out yet, correct? You’re saying do nightlies and then auto update?
