I have Raspberry Pi B+ with OSMC (latest version: October 2015.10-1). I have USB HD attached. After September update OSMC frequently and randomly freezes. It happens while playing movie/video and it starts with sound muting and in few seconds it freezes. I can’t connect to it over SSH, but I can ping it. All I can do is unplug power cable and restart it.
I tough it was because I have Deluged torrent service running on it, but it also happens when I stop the service. Here is log paste with debug mode on: http://paste.osmc.io/ohasucaxer
since i have seen a lot of instability with usb hard disks directly connected on the rpi i would suggest 1st thing to buy a self powered usb hub (one with its own power brick) and attach the hard disk on it.
Nevertheless, the first port of call when having issues with freezing should always be to drop back to normal overclock and see if the problem goes away.
Just because it has worked for the last year does not mean that the power adaptor could not have degraded over that time (including the connectors) or that a USB device you are using now draws more power than ones that you were using previously etc…
Even changes in software can lead to the CPU running in Turbo mode more often (The Pi CPU is dynamically clocked based on demand) which puts more demand on the power adaptor and can lead to freezing if power is marginal.
So this could be because of Deluge torrent running in the background? When I enable debugging I can see that CPU0 is most o the time 100% and CPU.KODI is between 20 and 40%? Cause I just added new torrents and I got 3 freezes in 1 hour. I will stop deluge and see what happens.
I’m Having the same problem with the last update.
When playing video the sound suddenly stops and then the pi freezes.
before i updated it never froze.
also when navigating troug the menu’s it freezes and first the sound disappears.
first i tought that some codec was missing.
sometimes it plays for a few hours correct.
i can always acces trough ssh when it freezes doh so no error there for me.
but it realt started directly after the update.
i have nothing externally connected exept my remote.
Well I didn’t have this kind of problems till September update. Yesterday I replaced Deluge with Transmission and load was a bit smaller but I just got first freeze. I will try Qbittorrent to see if there is any difference, but I think torrent process is not the problem.
