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.

“[HowTo] LCD HD44780 Through I2C Port Extender”
step by step tutorial, like i linked above ?
Thats work on older Repo’s, like a charm’
there never needed add to /etc/modules the hd44780,
ok so its new build repo, something changed under programing…
osmc@osmc:~$ modinfo hd44780
modinfo: ERROR: Module hd44780 not found.
osmc@osmc:~$ sudo nano /etc/modules
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
hd44780 # added now this line but won't works
so in my Tut the driver location is; under “Change the section:”
sudo nano /etc/LCDd.conf
Driver=hd44780 # ** If i remove this line, then never get it works !!!!**
sudo cp hd44780.so /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/lcdproc/
(BTW i did built a lot of media center with OSMC_TGT_rbp2_20160306.img and above… and LCD woked fine, without problem)
UI: it not suspicious only get works if i do a reset ? means when restart lcdproc ? doesn’t matter the path home/ or usr/
