Logging without the distracting text?

Hi all. Logging the box to replicate ethernet problems. How to do this without the constant display of the annoying logging text in the LH top? It may need to be on for some days.

You can add the following to advancedsettings.xml

<loglevel hide="true">1</loglevel>

This will make debug logging persistent without the screen overlay. Please note that this setting is something you will want to remove once your done testing as it needlessly increases writes under normal use.

unfortunately I dont have the linux knowledge for that…

There is no way to do this from the GUI. You would need to access the terminal on your Vero (instructions) and then type in…

nano ~/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml

and then type in…

<advancedsettings version="1.0">
<loglevel hide="true">1</loglevel>

To close the editor and save the file you would press ctrl+x, then y, then enter. This setting will take effect the next time Kodi restarts. Once your done with your testing and want to remove that option you can just delete that file with…

rm ~/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml

thanks mate, I managed to replicate the problem in a few hours!
