If you've been using OSMC for a while and checking in regularly on our updates, you may have noticed we've been talking about a new version of Kodi for some time. Today, we're happy to announce that this new version is now available for all OSMC devices.
I’m talking about the official one; updated now from the OSMC update from Kodi 16 to Kodi 17. Even if the archive_cache is in place, the UI navigation it is not immediate and I could say regressed. The other RPI with the test version of OSMC same behavior.
As I wrote in the posted links, when a video is terminating from an addon (youtube in my test), the system still thinking a while instead to give immediately the last menu when the video was selected.
This kind of slowness reflect the general performance of this new version.
I really hope that these performance issues will be fixed soon.
Hi Sam, I have been using OSMC / kodi 17 release candidate releases for the last few months - RC4 was the latest. I expected that the dist-upgrade today would leave my raspi with 17Final, and instead of that, I see it got 17.1RC1 (!!!). How do I get out of the alpha/beta trial and go back to the normal stable releases? thanks
I’m a casual user - just use OSMC on a Pi3 as a settop box for watching tv recorded off terrestrial signal on the other machine that has multiple RTL-SDR’s plugged into it.
I switched on the TV to watch the news, saw the OSMC update notification and hit the GO button. After reboot, I no longer have a LiveTV option. Needless to say, I’m not watching the news right now. :^)
I’m trying to find a menu item that will force another system upgrade.
I had to go into “add-on browser”, then go into “my add-ons” and then “all” to see the disabled “tvheadend” add-on, as no “PVR clients” menu option was showing up. Now, it is.
I must say - it appears the user interface for the PVR has changed DRAMATICALLY. Before hand I could get to where I wanted (a scrollable list of recorded programs) with a couple of keypresses. Right now I’m still trying to figure out WTF is going on.
