Market "view" option disappears

 Surely I'm not the only person this is happening to... after far too
long I finally discovered that there was a "Select View" in the Market
app menu that lets you see just paid apps. But the really weird thing
is that, on my phone at least, this option appears and vanishes like
the wind. Right now, for instance, it's not there and hasn't been for
two days, and the only way to see ANY priced apps/games is to scroll

Someone please tell me I'm not the only person seeing this, and
someone else please tell me it's being worked on.  ;)

Well, I can tell you that I've *never* seen that menu, and I look from
time to time. I can see priced apps, but I haven't yet quite figured out
which of the Market activities is supposed to have this menu.

And now it shows up on my G1.

I'll keep an eye on it and see if it sticks around.

 Without it, how is anyone supposed to even FIND any of the paid apps?
Is everyone just scrolling forever or what? Seems like not a lot to
ask that the marketplace at least be structured so that users can even
FIND paid apps amid all the free ones. It's a wonder we're getting any
sales at all.

It seems to be gone from my Marketplace app now. Only clue I can give
is that I got my last update over the web, not over the phone...
possibly a different copy of the app?

 I got my update FW 1.1 yesterday and noticed you can select "change 
view" when in a sub view.  I believe its context sensitive.  Once users 
find it, it will help them manage what they want to see easily.  The 
only problem is when I select paid apps there are none  :-(

1. AudioTrack(): obtainBuffer timed out

I started working on audio with OMAP3 + Android.
I have the windrivers audio porting as base the audio playback works fine.
But some times i get a warning prints continuously
with audio playback stopping and logging some entry similar to below.

W/AudioTrack( 566): obtainBuffer timed out (is the CPU pegged?)
user=00000100, server=00000000

after that point i could not make it re-play again without restarting.

I have seen a similar issue raised earlier but was not solved at that point
of time.
Is there any work around for this issue.

2. ksoftirqd CPU load is too high during video playback

Hi All,

We have replaced the video decoder of PV player with our H/w video decoder
and  are able to display the video.
The issue is that the playback pauses in between and progresses from the
same place, frequently.
For display we are using ashmem in android_output_surface.cpp file.

With 'top' we have observed that while the video playback is paused
"ksoftirqd" CPU load goes to very high value.
Please see below.
