I have set up a HTPC box on which I have PCLOS installed as well as Openelec with XBMC Ver 12 RC1 which has LiveTV capabilities.
When XBMC goes final I will be able to use it on the HTPC PCLOS install.
In the meantime I am using Kaffeine, which works well except for the problem with HD content.
There is no problem in Openelec/XBMC on the same hardware.
What happens is that Kaffeine drops a lot of the sound channel when playing HD content.
My question is ...... is there any way to 'tweak' Kaffeine that might help with this problem?
Maybe a specific driver or driver setting would help?
Output to the TV is via HDMI from on board Intel using G630 CPU.
I had been searching for a solution to this problem for some time, recently found this and pasted it to a text file future reference.
It works, I used lower buffer numbers than listed below because the numbers 500/2500 slow channel tuning. Also did not need to turn off de-interlacing.
I claim no credit for the answer:-
It turns out the problem is on channels with a higher resolution. So I modified ~/.kde/share/apps/kaffeine/xine-config to the following values:
In Kaffeine I turned de-interlacing off, using the menu item playback | video | then clicked on Deinterlace to turn it off. It now works fine.
