PVR Slow Motion Bug

Hi.
PVR Playback gets Slow Motion.
The Timespan this happens is Days to Weeks.
It happened with my A95X and now with my new T95 max too.

Video:


I switch through some Channels and all play Slow Motion.
Then start a Videofile and it runs normal.
I switch back to TV and still Slow Motion.
I reboot the Box and all is fine again.

Hello did you find a fix for this as I have just started experiencing this on my Wetek Play 2 running 9.2. PVR video slows with normal audio and all other videos play normally. Restarting kodi (systemctl restart kodi) doesn’t fix it. Only a reboot fixes the issue for me.

I think that the Hardware Decoder in the GPU Driver is bad.

With S905x and two S905 Boxes i have several Problems:

  1. every couple hours i have a bad frame.
  2. The Slow Motion Bug happens every coulpe weeks to months and i have to reboot.
  3. every couple weeks to months the box freezes due to a “bad frame” and i have to unplug/replug power.

BUT !!! !!! With 8.95.7 theese things doesnt happen!
I’m running 8.95.7 for months now without any of the problems mentioned above.
All i can say is, that all versions before 8.95.7 have the problems and that 9.0.1 also have the problems!

So coreelec devs, please fix! :slight_smile:

You are running outdated versions.
So, please don´t use old versions
The devs won´t waste time.

As i say, MAGIC 8.95.7 is the only version which doesn’t have the problems.
So devs must find out what they did and why this 1 version works stable and all others not.

Please upload fresh logs for latest 9.2.1 after this issue


I don’t think we know what was good in 8.95.7 only, but who knows…
