Hi, i encountered few times this annoying problem. While watching some movies (on my samba share), totally random (after 1 hour or 2 hour of continuous playback) Kodi hangs, everything hangs on a black screen with a circle blue logo stuck on TV.
I started debugging log. I created a pastebin with the content of debug log.
The only thing i can see is, just before it hangs:
13:06:00.385 T:4112969728 NOTICE: Samba is idle. Closing the remaining connections
DEBUG LOG: http://paste.ubuntu.com/25672696/
My samba share is working, it’s on my NAS (synology ds216j).
Howewer is pretty unusable my vero 4k with this problem, and i don’t know how can i solve. It happened many times. May my Vero be faulty?
I received on September 21st, so i don’t know if i can return it, but it’s pretty unusable with this problem.
I’m using samba on my windows machines, for better compatibility/performance. Now i’m giving a try with smb mounted in FSTAB. If problem occurs again i will try to use NFS (never used before).
Will i have to mount NFS share inside kodi, with kodi manager?
First you can do the two ways with Synology NAS I’m sure for 1515+/2415+, and I tink also for D your DS216j.
Use samba with your Win box, and NFS with you Linux (OSMX) box
Fstab or not fstab…
Old discussion, i love peace, I use Kodi share like years it’s work’s fine for me, and like Tom tell some new improvements are coming with the last update.
first take a look to your network search some bottlenecks
then with OSMC (and other Linux Box) use NFS, the most easy way is Kodi sharing, when you have problems try FSTAB (take care for Synolgy settings)
and when after that you have allways problems test your home network
I usually try one thing at once. Now i’m trying your first suggestion of using smb in FSTAB. I removed all of my samba share mounted with kodi manager. I’ll let playback for two-three hours with some videos to see if it freezes again.
I have all router and switch gigabit and the only devices fast ethernet is Vero 4K.
I don’t tested kodi in a win box/pc, but i use samba shares for many other things (as network drive) with my windows machines.
If the problem occurs again i will try with NFS.
By the way you suggested me to work with video cache settings. What specific settings you suggest to use for Vero 4K?
ssh was active. By the way after few minutes of frozen display, kodi restarted itself (only kodi not the Vero).
I have pvr iptv addon (with automatic update set to 2800 minutes and NOT when playback is active) and surveillance room addon (an addon for IP CAM) that has a background service.
I can try to disable ip cam addon as first.
I haven’t rebooted if you want to tell me what to check in ssh.
