Playback after pause takes >5 secs after 9.2.1 update

Hi,

I’ve recently updated my Magicsee N5 box to Coreelec 9.2.1. All went fine, but the update introduced an annoying issue:

When I pause a PVR recording (which are converted to MKV in my setup) and then continue playing, the audio immediately runs properly - but the picture is still frozen for around 5 seconds before the video also continues.

Does anyone suffer the same after the update and is there any solution around?

I’m getting the same on my S912 boxes, I have to skip back 10 seconds each time to not miss it. I can’t confirm but I think I saw the same on my s905x boxes too (I can’t test at the moment).

I’ve noticed the same issue. The picture hangs, then starts playing after 9-10 seconds. Didn’t happen until 9.2.1. Sorry I don’t have any logs.

A potential workaround is the Unpause Jumpback addon. I use this regularly with a 10-15 sec jumpback and it works great. Unpause Jumpback

Exact same issue for me on my S905X box. All fine before the latest update, now getting the issue that you describe (although I don’t use PVR, it’s just playing MKV files in general it seems? Haven’t extensively tested yet).

EDIT: I rolled back to 9.2.0 and working fine again, so it’s definitely something introduced in the latest version.

have the same issue. on s905x2, magicsee n5 max, update 9.2.1.
opened a thread here: Video hangs after long pause (didn’t find this one)

Can somebody please provide a short sample.

Have you tried using the pass profile in TVH. I have noticed that on broadcast .ts recordings that the audio is usually around a second in advance of the video according to MediaInfo.

the thread is labeled wrong, the problem is not only on tvh… also in local files.
I also have a log posted here: Video hangs after long pause if needed
