What dvfs table are current builds using ?

Hopefully not loboris's, because that will melt the board with heat (max is 1.4V, that one is using 1.5v@1.53ghz)..

I just discovered by accident that the onboard IR-receiver on the OPI seems to be linked to /dev/inp ...

Yes. IR-Receiver seems to work in someway with my LG remote too.Lirc will be awesome. I will try to make it work too. If you find something please share

I have a good and a bit bad news:
1) Audio Passthrough seems to work
2) With Passthrough enabled the is a buzz noise (about 1 sec.) when the video start playing. (Maybe it's only my tv. I should try with an AVR..)

Pls, just leave 1.2Ghz@1.34V, anything more is overclocking on these boards, which will cause unecessery heat and instability.

Hummm, this seems to work fairly well. I've loaded up several repositories, currently I'm using the I4atv addon, it's stable. Found the sound through the Hdmi cable setting in the openelect setup menu. The Lan is up, haven't tried Wifi yet. So, I'm watching TV on My Vizio.  Looking real good that I might have some fun this weekend, video is stable, audio is in sync, what more can you ask?

It's working very well here as well...so far it plays anything I throw at it and it works just as snappy as Openelec on my RPI2.
Only main drawback for me are the missing PVR addons and some other common addons, but as far as I can find this seems to be a kodi v16 Jarvis issue...
It appears the PVR addons need to be included from source and compiled into system and can't be added from zip-files afterwards.

Is there a way I can compile an older (non beta) version of openelec and include the specific H3/OrangePi patches used for this version ?

Yes. It shouldn't be hard. I will try soon

Have you got the green stripe at the bottom with H265 videos?

I don't have the green stripe on my OPI-PC for all H265 videos (using the r21672 release).
It could be coincidence, but the stripe only seems to happen with vids that are letterboxed and/or have mattes (the black bars above and under the screen)
And I noticed that for the vids that do have it, you can move the stripe out of the way by zooming out the screen by a couple of percent.

the stripe also happens with some H264 vids, but it is less visible as for H264 "the stripe" is not green but just a dark transparent and slightly distorted part at the bottom of the video.
Only seems to happen with letterboxed (16:9 ?) vids

I also experienced a few bugs in the video settings: some deinterlace methods and post-processing make the video "hang", while audio continues.
And vertical shift doesn't seem to work.
