@SailorT: I'm not sure if you're still around, but I wanted to ask you if you still have your patches for MNv4 for 1.05-dev. I'm finaly switching over, and when I enable MN I get a ~3s delay after each key press.

If you're no longer active or if you don't have the changes anymore I will try to troubleshoot it myself, but it will take time.

Hi guys,

back on train for a while. So...
I have finished patching MNv4 code due to new wdtvext js language differencies for next 1.05 fw. Now I have to polish some code since I have patched against my dev version, so this will take some days to follow, but...

If you can help me speeding up process, I have these questions:
- where I can find latest fw I should troubleshoot MNv4 towards and what I have to do to make it boot on my device?
(I have found some links but they're seems to be dated so I'm asking for latest stuff. Not really time to traverse forum posts)
- is there any "commonly accepted" way how to determine WDLXTV version device is running? There are some fw version specific aspects that needs to be addressed, so if we want to have one codebase, this is essential.
- something you can let me be aware within new fw?

then:

- is anyone willing to help me test/debug.troubleshoot dvb (TV) functionality through the way? It was functional already, but my dev version is coming with few new features regarding this, so any help would be great. But please don't ask for support for specific devices, my toolchain for building dvb drrivers is gathering dust and I'm not very into clean it up. So if current drivers I have build work, that's great, if not, that's a pity.
- but if anyone is brave enough to build latest v4l against wdtv linux kernel, then be my guest :-) [ok. literally, if someone gets it, then I will take You for a dinner in my town when You got eventually here. seriously.]

- I have been reviewing post regarding MNv4 in this forum and so far feasible seems to that I will change 'cue' functionality so only cue for current playing file will be populated (still though I try to rember what was scenario I have designed it this way. there have to be one ;-) ).
Personally, I'm using one flac file + cue file which is the best (IMHO) way how to get seamless playback and fluent navigation through the album with help of MNv4.
Basically, although I have now other player and tried many others, current support for 'full flac + cue' is not rivaled anywhere else for me. That's why my WDTV Live is still within my setup.

It's great to be back for some time. Memories ;)

Cheers
T.

Welcome back Sailort!

I tried the patches you sent me for 1.05-wdtvext-beta and they resolve most of the OSD delays. Right now, on each keypress the OSD is a bit laggy (takes about 1.5s to react). It also looks like it is missing key events if you press them too quickly, but it will actually queue them and execute them. This happens on the main menu (when navigating through movies or other OSD entries). Compared to before it is quite usable (if you have the patience to wait a bit).

I was looking through the log file and I see that on each key press, on every page there is some code executed from the TV section of MediaNavigation:

Code: Select all
root@Deneb:/root# tail -f /boot/wdtvext.log | grep -v -i trace
MediaNavigationV4:  TVAction end 56

Might I suggest a way to disable the TV/DVB functionality from the config file so that users without a DVB dongle can disable it and prevent it from running? Again, I'm not sure if this is the cause. I haven't actually dug through the code...

Basic features like navigation and subtitle downloading work fine (these are the features I was using).

Don't worry. Already cleaning code for TV from main loop as it was placed there during test period.
Unfortunately not all delays are coming from this. I remember slightly that MN was reacting slower on 1.05 wdtvext.
You can try this new version against older fw to see.

Hi

Is there any way to disable MN from activating itself when playing audio files? It has killed my audio playback on 1.02.21_0.5.2.2, causing some graphics to go missing and loss of functionality such as skipping to the next/previous track, or changing shuffle mode etc. But I still need it for video.

edit: nevermind, found it in lines 1903 & 2170 of MediaNavigationV4.include.js.

I haven't looked at the code in a year or so, but I believe you can check somewhere on what page you are and simply return/ignore the rest of the code if you are on the music page. Try to take a look at the code, maybe I will do too... Should be easy to disable anyway.
