Slow down of Hyperion.ng


#21

In advancedsettings add:

  <gui>
    <algorithmdirtyregions>0</algorithmdirtyregions>
  </gui>

Since I have only that one line in my advancedsettings.xml, it looks like this:

<advancedsettings>
  <gui>
    <algorithmdirtyregions>0</algorithmdirtyregions>
  </gui>
</advancedsettings>

Many thanks!
Tell me please what path do I need to place the file advancedsettings.xml?


#23

Place it in .Userdata folder.

If you use a Windows machine, make the file with Notepad++, or I can send you my file if you have some problems creating it.


#24

Tell me please the full path to which you need to place the file advancedsettings.xml.


#25

Oh c’mon! You could google that… .kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml


#26

Are there any slowdowns when watching videos using the Hyperion, not Hyperion.ng?


#27

Yes, they are. On both.


#28

Hi,

As I don’t get any slowdown with CE 8.90.4 I attached my Hyperion.ng configuration
hyperion.config.json (67.6 KB)


#29

Do you use an external grabber?


#30

From the above config you can check that I do not.


#31

Did you also test with the stable hyperion?


#32

Hyperion.ng is the stable version of hyperion…


#33

is it offial released by the hyperion team?


#34

@danielfmo would you mind posting your arduino sketch as well?
Would like to check for differences.

Thanks


#35

@danielfmo : which Amlogic device are you using?

i have matched your config settings on my Odriod C2 and are still experiencing slowdowns - does the dirty regions thing need to be used too?

Kind regards,
Z.

Hi,

I’m using arduino sketch from here:

with an Arduino Micro, based on ATmega32U4 set to 2000000 baud rate. ATmega328 based arduinos are not powerful enough. I have 224 APA102 LEDs with a 10A power supply.

I have dirty regions set to 3 on CE 8.90.4 on my ODROID C2.


#37

Thank you. That’s very helpful!


#38

@danielfmo Thanks, that’s Interesting, I’m using an Arduino Uno clone with WS2801 strip.

My sketch looks nothing like yours.

Perhaps that is not a good combination …


#39

There are a lot of different Arduino sketches that work, but that one is delivered with Hyperion and validated by it’s developers. And I vow that it is good enough to drive 224 SPI leds…

@danielfmo So I reworked my Hyperion.ng configuration and switched to your sketch from my previous one, also I have changed my Arduino UNO to Arduino Micro and unfortunately I still get the slow downs on my KIII Pro.

I’m wondering if the smoothing frequency or other frequency configuration could have anything to do with this issue…
