have no idea what you did to the build or this is circumstatial evidence, but I can stop livetv with your build.

Hehe. Pretty easy. I programmed the original bug, while rewriting Audio Engine. RC3 is the first release, where the Audio Device is not constantly kept open, but released after 10 seconds. So emulators, webbrowser, etc. should now work with audio quite fine (Obviously without menu sounds - as the last "click sound" would open it again for 10 seconds). And while implementing this, I changed the external calls to AE, to be non blocking, e.g. an external application that calls AE does not have to wait forever. Here I forgot basically one line, setting the masterstream NULL after deleting the memory it has. So the outputstage crash cause of this dangeling pointer :-) This is fixed now (in master).

Sad thing is, that my approx 20 testers could not reproduce the STOP in advance, so this made it into RC3. Yesterday I found a away to reproduce on my dev system and could fix it within minutes.

Great job! Do you also have a fixed build for the xtreamer ultra 2??

Ok, so it's not circumstantial evidence at all then Smile

I watched a bunch of tv yesterday to test this, and no crashes on any file format that I can see.

Apart from this, I'd say that for generic at least, it looks to me like a final version, hope your fix gets commited asap Smile

thanks man!

I have the same problem, RC3 hangs or freezes in different situations. Sometime after turn off the device i can't turn it on from the remote. Any update/fix is comming ?

Not all problems are related ot this issue, but the issue discussed here is already fixed (in tree). The generic package one page back, has the fix incorporated. All crashes that occur with this build are not related.

Sorry but i'm not good in english and i didn't fully understand what you said.

The bug, that was causing segfaults when playback was stopped or switching between audio tracks is fixed and will be available with RC4.
