My library consists of around 3,500 movies and I add more on a daily basis.
I have 11 hard drives connected to my Vero 4K+ via the USB Hub. (wired)
I noticed that I frequently encounter the Blue Screen with the frowning face lately.
Also 4K movies stutter.
I thought perhaps the modified AEON MQ7 and AEON MQ8 Skins that I’m using might have caused the problem
but even if I try to use the OSMC Skin or Kodi’s default, CPU usage on Idle is still the same. (96-100% on all Cores)
Can Vero 4K+ handle AEON MQ7/MQ8 Skin even with a large library?
Thanks for the reply.
Sorry but I’m quite a newbie with command lines.
I’m using a macbook.
Can you point me to the right direction?
Or is there a command in the terminal that I can just copy and paste in order to determine what’s
causing the sluggish performance?
KODI.BIN is the culprit, it is using 392% of CPU and 74% Memory at IDLE specially after playing a 4K movie for a few minutes.
Whenever I play 4K movies, most likely I will encounter slowdown and then the BLUE SCREEN with the
After restart, it will play the movie fine but upon exit and play or fast forward/rewind, memory will become full, movie becomes sluggish again and then the Blue Screen will appear again.
You will temporary lose them as you will get a clean Kodi.
But they will be in ~/kodi.bak where you can recover them from with the second set of command.
But as usual it helps to have backups also done before
I tried the First command and played a 4K movie flawlessly.
Upon checking the CPU usage after playing a movie, rewinding and fast forwarding it,
only 1 core is at 10% while the others are all 0% and the memory used is just 10%
When I connected via command line.
KODI.BIN is just using 5% memory and the CPU load is around 12% only instead of the previous 390+%.
What do you think is causing the problem?
I’ll try to restore my kodi using the 2nd command that you’ve given.
If you haven’t restored the whole kodi directory I suggest just to do this systemctl stop mediacenter cp ~/kodi.bak/userdata/guisettings.xml .kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml cp ~/kodi.bak/userdata/sources.xml .kodi/userdata/sources.xml systemctl start mediacenter
@fzinken, I did that mate.
I was able to restore my kodi using the previous command that you gave.
I now tried the last command that you suggested.
It restarted but I did not see any difference.
CPU at almost 100% and sad blue screen again after playing a different 4K file.
When you ran the previous command than you have already restored your whole Kodi folder!
Start from scratch again systemctl stop mediacenter mv ~/.kodi ~/kodi.bak systemctl start mediacenter systemctl stop mediacenter cp ~/kodi.bak/userdata/guisettings.xml .kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml cp ~/kodi.bak/userdata/sources.xml .kodi/userdata/sources.xml systemctl start mediacenter
My guess would be it’s the banned add-on that you have in your sources. And you have 2 others that I’m not familiar with. Don’t reinstall those, or if you do, do them one at a time to find out what the culprit is.
