#871369 gpixmap.cpp, horrible bug...

Posted by pieterg on 15 April 2018 - 18:49

If you are having problems now that the threshold is lower, that does NOT mean the threshold is too low.
It simply means your hardware does not support alpha blending, and the lower the threshold, the more obvious this is showing.

So do not modify the threshold, disable hardware alphablending on hardware which does not support it.

#491943 merge requests for PLi's git

Posted by pieterg on 18 May 2015 - 20:54

It was caused by an uninitialized filedescriptor.

I pushed the commit again, with socketdesc properly initialized.

#491882 GStreamer 1.0

Posted by pieterg on 18 May 2015 - 14:41

building the cache takes a long time (several seconds), so if gstreamer itself knows when the cache should be invalidated, I'd prefer to keep it on non-volatile storage.

#480113 Enigma2 pmt handler: dont send teletext pid in pmt as streampid

82: What is demuxmask, what purpose has it?    Read section data from demux number, what purpose has it?

demuxmask: e2 might start filters on any demux in this mask. So all these demuxes should be descrambled.
demux number: use this demux to start your sectionfilters. (should be one of the demuxes in the demuxmask, but you'd better use the indicated one, because the mask might be adjusted, and you don't want to have to move your sectionfilters all the time when the demuxmask changes)

83: m_adapter? -> perhaps in use with multituner receivers?

indeed, same as demux number. Adapter + demux give you your demux device node.

85: service type mask? -> what purpose has it?

different service types (live tv, recording, stream, etc) could be treated differently (e.g. with different priority when resources are low for instance)

#453477 GStreamer 1.0

I think, if patches (by you and mx3l) are accepted, it makes sense to use the git version (until they've made it into a stable release, at least)

#448016 Unable to compile gst-1.0 branch

Posted by pieterg on 6 October 2014 - 21:43

Nice find Athoik!


I considered the custom search as too difficult and already replaced the whole search construction with a far more simple approach:

if (gst_bin_get_by_name_recurse_up(GST_BIN(m_gst_playbin), "GstDVBAudioSink")){
    audioSink = GST_ELEMENT_CAST(GST_BIN(m_gst_playbin));
if (gst_bin_get_by_name_recurse_up(GST_BIN(m_gst_playbin), "GstDVBVideoSink")){
    videoSink = GST_ELEMENT_CAST(GST_BIN(m_gst_playbin));

Works for all gstreamer versions till now ;)

pushed. Thanks.

#399754 Building openpl2.1 from DM8000 on x64 ubuntu

You must also generate the checksum (see the other files in de sources directory).


actually, just create the '.done' stamp. Checksums are handled by bitbake.

#392325 Can Device Manager by Xtrend work in OpenPLi basic image?

Posted by pieterg on 16 December 2013 - 13:28

I've told you the culprit, fork. Use vfork instead.
I didn't realise that you would take that as an insult. I think we should stop this discussion, clearly we're talking at different levels.

#389668 timers.xml symlink problem (PLi / Duo2)

Posted by pieterg on 29 November 2013 - 10:56

We use atomic writes, to ensure you never end up with a corrupted file.
(Instead, you always have either the old unmodified version, or the new version)

This method does not work when the file is a symlink, it will be replaced by the new file.

#388850 Wireless Bridge

Posted by pieterg on 24 November 2013 - 13:12

Ja dat kan, zo doe ik het ook.
Moet je alleen wel een router kiezen die een utp 'WAN' poort heeft. Geen adsl oid.

#388616 Duo2 Image Latest build is not working as it should

Posted by pieterg on 23 November 2013 - 00:29

Or ask vu+ to fix it.
Issues need to be fixed where the problem is. Preferably not swept under sume rug.

#388281 UP/DOWNLINK 2013 nummer 11 (november) is uit

Posted by pieterg on 21 November 2013 - 20:46

ach, simpele gebruikers zien daar niks van, die zien alleen de buitenkant. En sommige teams besteden inderdaad meer aandacht aan de buitenkant dan aan de binnenkant.
Ieder z'n ding, ik lig er niet wakker van, het is een hobby.

#387523 How many euros will you spend on an Android Receiver ?

Posted by pieterg on 18 November 2013 - 17:17

And regarding Open source. I don't care.

In that case, I won't buy it.

#386808 IPTV - Issue with OPENPLI

Posted by pieterg on 14 November 2013 - 21:31

2.1 uses the same enigma2 I think.

#386617 IPTV - Issue with OPENPLI

Posted by pieterg on 13 November 2013 - 21:33

OK, I've found two issues;

1. the number of redirects sometimes exceeded 3, so I've increased the maximum number of redirects that we'll try to follow
2. because we did not provide a User-Agent, the server did not calculate a unique identifier for us as a client, so the redirect url's did not work

I've got the two test streams (which I received by PM) working, after these two fixes.
Please try again with tomorrows build.
