Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

Thanks for offering, kikoseis. I think we sure will need some more testers in the near future. Subscribe this topics, please.

For the moment I temporarily stopped the project - I'll be back soon... hopefully in couple of weeks.
Stay tuned.

Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

A step towards HDMI input: test code can switch to HDMI and hardware control can set vsync rate to 50 or 60 Hz. Unfortunately when HDMI input is active, it is impossible to use STi7109 framebuffer for OSD. Original software uses OSD layer in MTK8226 over internal USB. I don't want to reimplement this.

Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

First tests of neutrino-mp: - works fast and fits into memory - nice graphics, sophisticated menu system - HD channels (H264 on DVB-T) does not work - FIXED - movie player does not play any video - FIXED - bad character set for cze...

Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

I just compiled neutrino-mp. It looks VERY good... (I'll fix couple of trivial problems and then make photos - hopefully today)

Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

Do you think you could enable zram in this kernel ? Could help if we are missing a bit of memory. Of course zram is consuming cpu but active applications only use a part of allocated memory so it could work pretty very well if we don't use swap too much... No, zram would just slow down the system. ...

Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

HDMI inputs not yet handled.

I created a wiki page http://wiki.samygo.tv/index.php5/Open_s ... A7/8/9_SH4
We should add a todo list to wiki. HDMI handling, factory and user setting go to the top.

Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

DVB-T support for showtime: my idea is to use tvheadend (dvb-t backend from Andreas ?man, author of showtime) and make a "shortcut" for local stream. So you can configure channels and access epg over tvheadend's web. When you start dvb-t in showtime, player will use stream in kernel dvb infrastructu...

Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

First send ex-link output of tv-boot to my mail. I'll try to detect what parts are same and what are different. Then setup nfs share on a linux box. First try to load umicom.img - it is good test and you will need it for comfortable setting U-Boot environment. I'll pack current image and write some ...

Re: Samy Going Open source (sh4 A7/8/9)

Good news with showtime: graphic user interface is working. It was not easy - showtime normally uses 3D OpenGL. I tried with stgles library from duckbox project. The library is fake GL ES which "renders" only rectangles with 2D accelerator and DirectFB. Unfortunately it implemented only minimum need...
