here is my config.txt ( keeps banding from HD videos which uses MORE cpu not less reversed logic I know )

Code:
disable_overscan=1
start_x=1
gpu_mem=128
hdmi_group=1
hdmi_mode=16

Thanks TeX, adding those lines to the start of my config.txt fixed the odd 1824x984(!) resolution I was getting on my 1920x1080 screen. Thought first the black border around my desktop was caused by overscan...

Option "XkbLayout" "se"
instead of "us"

Yepp, that was the work-around I needed too

I'll test my omxplayer v7 package with the most recent quirky 8.1.

It was working perfectly with the previous versions.

Note that the next release of Quirky will have omxplayer as well as VLC.

I have compiled it, and it uses the system ffmpeg, so the omxplayer PET is only 182KB. Hardly any overhead to add that to the next build.

Some of my test vidoes don't play on my omxplayer, so it will be interesting to compare with your PET package.

Blog posts regarding compiling omxplayer:

Testing 8.1, I found that snapshot recovery doesn't work. Taking a snapshot works, but not recovery (rolling back).

This comes as a surprise to me, as I tested creating a snapshot and recovery, only about a week ago and it worked.

Anyway, hold off on using the snapshot mechanism for now.

For those new to Quirky, the snapshot mechanism is in the menu, Filesystem -> Snapshot Manager.

Which I introduced to Quirky back in 2013:

Many of us use BerryBoot to manage multiple RPi distros on a single sdcard. Could you consider adding a checkbox to remove /lib/modules to make your snapshots compatible.

http://www.berryterminal.com/doku.php/berryboot/adding_custom_distributions

Of course with your experience maybe make BarryBoot Wink out of Quirky I did not like that he cutup the disk when not needed. Guess he never figured out the savefolder idea on same partition. Razz

The snapshot recovery was broken. It did not work "about a week ago", that was a recovery on my laptop -- I "misremembered"

... ha ha, I am reminded of Hillary Clinton Laughing

There were lots of things wrong. One was the squashfs f.s. driver is a module, not builtin -- I am using an official pre-compiled Linux kernel from the RPi github.

So, only use the snapshot and recovery mechanism after the next release of Quirky.

@teX Dog,
BerryBoot? I will have to think about that. Right now, just thinking I need to tear myself away from this screen and eat something.
And get back to reading a Maisie Dobbs novel -- halfway through.

I came here to escape U.S. election coverage, It is so beyond nasty. Any way BerryBoot offers some nice methods and a very lightweight but fully functional (use of TV remote to select distros ) and his desktop mode allows the more complex multimedia distros to run with all those fancy alpha channels and layering in hardware I like. His source code is online and extremely small (30-40 lines for distro switching part) and you can't switch between distros on the fly (which seems do able). But his shortsided simple set in stone layout from beginning format is so limiting.

Good(?) news:

@sage is that like yours?

Nope, 'fraid not. It's a small black box, vga socket one side, hdmi flying lead and sound socket on t'other. CPC don't seem to be selling it any longer - only posh ones for ~25quid (almost certainly with precision DACs inside?)!


CPC.co.uk. CS2759401 £6.95
It's back, but price is a bit higher. It was originally listed as for an RPi and should work, subject to previous comments, with some systems.

turns out Ferrell US website is offline.. wonder whats up.

@Barry, BerryBoot kernel is rather new and already made to support sfs and aufs. I runs fatArm and maybe already used to boot this, unsure I have moved FatARM and fd64 on to this sdcard so I can move files around easily, most like the case this is already booted with BerryBoot kernel. BTW the openELEC does not need a save layer I run its SYSTEM (a sfs) file directly with BerryBoot kernel same way we run FatDogArm. Incase you want to play around without reinventing. The lib/modules are in a zipped tar file that comes with the berryboot loader. Also BBloader has a neat trick to run same distros on Mele1000. Its buried on the website. Just incase you wanted to blow off some dust from the Mele1000

Try typing:www.cpc.co.uk, maybe the redirect via the UK server will take you to www.cpc.farnell.com which is working.
You would be doing other folk a service if you list some other sources as my guess is that there is a willing market for RPi users, esp. if they collected a Zero for a mere $5/£4/E5. The original Raspbian has an early Puppy on it which still works, subject to the usual cautions.

All websites for this company in the Americas is OUT. North and South America included. link you provided does not resolve to an DNS. To be fair the US has had massive connections issues since the Wikileaks and undercover videos, now with the FBI restarting Executive Branch investigations who knows how long it will our internet will last.
It has already affected this thread if you go back a few pages when uploads to East Coast host was borked.
