All video's on the new 7" PI 2 Touchscreen are not in sync [SOLVED]


#1

The new Raspberry PI touchscreen isn’t in sync when playing video’s with OpenElec and Kodi. Can this be a bug?
I’m using the latest version of OpenElec in combination with a Hifiberry amp. Playing video’s with this combination and the HDMI output works fine. But using only the 7" touchscreen results in a time-lag every 4 seconds. So the 7"screen isn’t useable for me for watching video on OpenElec with Kodi.
Can overclocking be a solution? If so, which to choose?

The config.txt of OpenElec has these options:

default recommended values are: arm_freq | core_freq | sdram_freq | over_voltage

no overclocking : 700 | 250 | 400 | 0
mode ‘Modest’ : 800 | 300 | 400 | 0
mode ‘Medium’ : 900 | 333 | 450 | 2
mode ‘High’ : 950 | 450 | 450 | 6
mode ‘Turbo’ : 1000 | 500 | 600 | 6
mode ‘Pi2’ : 1000 | 500 | 500 | 2

I don’t know enough about OpenElec to comment usefully on this, but someone else here might have some clue. I don’t think overclocking is the answer.

The Raspberry Pi specific forum on OpenElec.tv is probably the best place to look for answers: http://openelec.tv/forum/124-raspberry-pi

If you find a solution, please drop a link here! Someone at some point in the future will appreciate you for it.

Thanks Pimoroni Crew. The solutions is to add the right codecs, now the video’s are right in sync with the 7" display.
