Nightly builds (NEW)

And verbose? VERBOSE=yes doesn’t work (bl301 build for example is built without verbose in such case). For now I always enabled it in config/functions to see what’s going on while building.

Btw. which distro at which version is recommended for building coreelec?

(I’m using one with latest versions of software and building here is a pain; I needed to fix/update tons of packages and I’m still not getting full build)

I can say that I use ubuntu 20.04 for building and I rarely face any problems.

It seems to me that the EPG is updated very often.
P.S. The refresh rate is set to 180 minutes.

Try to change it to different value and return back and reboot your box
Don’t see any problems, may be some addon asks to update epg

I am using the 2021.01.08 nightly build. Before this build everything worked fine but now the big files are stutters. These are only full hd movies, 25GB-35GBs files. No matter where I store them in the network: on my computer or on my NAS. Will you fix it or I have to try the stable version of CE?

Please tell us the exact last nightly build date where it was working, thank you!

If I remember well, the build which worked properly was the: 20210106.
You know if something is working properly nobody cares which version is that but after something is wrong everybody is crying. :slight_smile:

It’s strange as only something about CEC got changed, nothing else. So how should be the playback affected by CEC?

Can you please confirm one more time with 20210106 if it’s working and with 20201008 not?

Hey guys! Maybe i missed something? When will new nightlys be available?

How can I rollback for the previous build? (I would like if every settings should stay as it is now.)

Just place the desired tar in the update folder and reboot. Up and downgrade is possible without any issue.

With this: CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.2-nightly_20210105-Generic.img.gz everything is ok, but the next 2 versions are not good.

Can you provide a sample of the media file?
Like only 30-50MB from the beginning?

I can confirm the issue. I see tons of skipped frames with some of my videos.
Reverting media_modules-aml to 320916ff fixes it.

Sample video.

This file has the same problem.
Transformers sample

Both of the above 2 samples play perfectly in 20210108 on my S905X2.

Have you guys tried a fresh install with no mods/addons etc to rule out something that you have installed?

Watch the skipped frames counter.

In any case this is now fixed .

@smp, your sample should work in today nightly build.
@Aldebaran, please also check if your sample works fine on latest nightly. I think issue was the same, but I couldn’t repeat your sample issue on my box

Last versions on nighties Generic (I use S905X2) have three (propably) bugs.

  1. Box freeze after choosing Restart option in Power menu. Shutdown working well.
  2. Sometimes albums graphics (in library) dont appear. I see just movies, series posters. Not albums/artists thumbs.
  3. CEC is working well, but 1 option stopped working. Changing source in TV (Panasonic) doesnt boot my CE box.

CE Matrix is installed by update stable version on my dual boot Ugoos box. These issues appeared lately. I think about 2-3 recent releases.

With this new build the movies are running smoothly. Thx.
