How to verifiy "advancedsettings.xml" setting have actually been applied


Im running OSMC on a RP3.

To help with buffering issues, I’ve created an “advancedsettings.xml” file at this folder location:
… and added the recommended setting for cachemembuffersize,readbufferfactor etc.

But - how do I verify that these settings have actually been read & applied pls?

I can’t seem to see anything in the SYSTEM > SYSTEM INFORMATION menu - apart from available memory which stays at approx. 733MB regardless of how high I set cachemembuffersize.
Hence starting to doubt whether my settings are being applied.


Logs easily and quickly verify this.

OK thanks.

I’m still fairly new to all this.
I think I know how to initiate & start a log - but can you explain how I read the log file that gets created pls.

Enable debugging and check kodi.log
If you need help upload the log

Thanks for quick response.
At this point I’m not looking to upload a log (although that may come soon :slight_smile: ).

Could you explain how I physically open & read the log I create.
Can this be done in OSMC.
Or do I need to do it via the terminal?
Or do I need to copy the file some how & use my pc to read it.

Sorry - all probably daft questions - but I just don’t know.

Thanks - I’ll take a look tonight.
