This probably isn’t related to your problem, but just as a general tip: if the hard drive powers itself from the USB port, the Vero 4K probably won’t produce enough electric current to drive it. If the hard drive has its own connection to the electricity supply via a wall socket, then everything will be fine; but if not, then it will work better connected to a powered USB hub.
THANK YOU very much. it works I think the MyOSMC Log Uploader solve the Problem.
unfortunately another Problem shows up.
I downloaded some Samsung 4K HDR Demo to watch. If i put a USB-Stick directly in the TV the File - UHD with HDR 10+ - runs very smooth.
If i play it with the Vero it runs jerky and have some stutters - micro stutters, and the Sound stocks sometimes.
Have someone the same Behavior with 4K HDR Files ?
Is it maybe a Skin Problem ? I use at the Moment the Aeon MQ8 - the Skin allows to make own Categories in the Main Menu
Or should i have to make some Configurations in the Vero ?
For HDR10+ you would need the new 4.9 Kernel that is currently in testing.
But the Video still should play without jutter even on the current Kernel.
Would need to see debug enabled logs to give further advice.
To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. The best way to get this information is for you to upload logs that demonstrate your problem. You can learn more about how to submit a useful support request here.
Depending on the used skin you have to set the settings-level to standard or higher, in summary:
enable debug logging at settings->system->logging
reboot the OSMC device twice(!)
reproduce the issue
upload the log set (all configs and logs!) either using the Log Uploader method within the My OSMC menu in the GUI or the ssh method invoking command grab-logs -A
publish the provided URL from the log set upload, here
Thanks for your understanding. We hope that we can help you get up and running again shortly.
Try your demo file again after adjusting your setup…
We recommend people with 4K TV’s set their user interface (UI) to 1080p. Kodi’s UI is not optimized for 4K yet and this can put unnecessary demands on your device and can lead to a suboptimal picture quality, as well as potentially cause other issues.
With the above settings your UI will be output in Full HD and your 4K content will be output in 4K. *Information regarding the whitelist can be found here. If you have any doubt, feel free to upload some logs so we can verify that your settings are indeed correct.
Ok, so your harddisk seems to correctly automount to /media/Mediaplayer means lets look into more details for the samba config.
Can you login via SSH and provide URL of paste-log /etc/samba/smb.conf paste-log /etc/samba/smb-local.conf paste-log /etc/samba/smb-shares.conf
Also install smbclient sudo apt-get install smbclient and run smbclient -L localhost and post the output.
Thank you very very much. The Problem seems to be solved by using the recommend settings that @darwindesign postet.
In Settings>System>Display>is the Option USE LIMITED COLOR RANGE 16-235 enabled.
Ive got a Samsung Qled Q80 TV who is able to show HDR10+. Should i let the Limited Color Option enabled ?
And - i hope you dont mind another question - can you give me an advice for a useful Skin.
I used a WDTV befor and sorted my Videos at the Harddrive in 14 Kategories. I search for an easy use skin who allowed me to shows this Kategories directly at the Mainmenu. With Aeon MQ8 it works, but this Skin has way to much options for a Kodi-Starter.
To add to what bmillham said the limited color range does not affect HDR content. You can find a lot of info on this subject and most others on Kodi’s wiki.
As for the skin I would recommend just looking around and figure out how to tweak whatever you find suits your preference. Even with very limited skins such as Kodi’s default Estuary which doesn’t allow you to add main menu items, still allows you to add categories to the home screen widgets, so once you find what you like, there will probably be a way to get the function your after.
