I was setting up a new RPi 2 with a fresh install.
I installed the latest image and before I did anything else I updated OSMC to the latest version.
After that I decided to set up a MySQL Video DB but a few issues showed up.
The “landing” page provides youi the name MyVideos by default so I didn’t modify that, next was to enter the MySQL DB server IP.
First weird thing to happen is that an unknown IP showed up while I was expecting an empty field (as shown before trying to edit)
Then I wanted to enter the port number but instead of finding an empty field the IP I just typed in. I could not delete, but started typing the port number and it worked just like there was nothing in it.
Typed in the user and password and so I thought that it was all done. But when I wanted to exit I got a message saying that the data was incomplete so if I left the changes would not take effect.
It happened to be that the DB name “MyVideos” was not actually a set parameter, so I had to edit the value and type “MyVideos” in the empty field.
It can all be seen in the hidden youtube video I just made: watch?v=OCNOJPPKJBs
After I finished all that I noticed too that reentering the network config produced the following overlay issue: watch?v=IZRaKBOTzvg
I could not replicate it in another fresh installation.
But there is an issue that also bothers me with copying the advancedsettings and sources xml files from an already configured OSMC to a fresh installed one. After successfuly configuring the sources, content types and MySQL VideoDB I backed up the advancedsettings.xml and sources.xml files, then I did a fresh install and update in another microsd, copied the xml files to the corresponding userdata folder in the freshly installed osmc and what I get is the sources and the correct parameters under MySQL VideoDB config, but the sources don’t have a content type configured. The weird thing is that on “another new” fresh install that I was doing recording all the process to show you all these problems it worked like a charm.
So I can’t really find the problem why this is happening, but it does.
I am sorry if I my explanation is not very clear but I can’t think clearly as I have a big flu.
Make any questions I can record videos or provide you any info you want.
