I just installed OSMC on my Pi 3 B+.
Now I read Kodi 18 supports Encrypted VideoStreams like Netflix.
But I can’t find which Version of Kodi OSMC installed nor any Addons to isntall.
How do I check which Kodi Version I installed and how can I install Addons and watch Netflix via it?
Also some day I wanna play play on my Pi.
Is retrosmc beta 0.007 kinda stable or is there a better Solution for this?
Or is OSMC the wrong distri for this?
I also tried installing LibreELEC, but I only got the Error with the lighning in the top right corner, which usually means a too weak power supply, but 3Ampere should be enough, right? And OSMC can boot
Is it also possible to have a XFCE-Desktop on my Pi with OSMC?
When I tried to install Kodi 18, I get an Error about a wrong Signature of the repository:
I added the Key via
root@osmc:~# wget -qO - http://download.osmc.tv/dev/gmc-18/gpg.key | sudo apt-key add
but then I get
root@osmc:~# sudo apt-get update
Err:1 ftp.fau.de/osmc/osmc/download/dev/gmc-18 gmc-18 InRelease

What do I have to do here to have the signature accepted?
And why is it trying to download from ftp.fau.de and not download.osmc.tv as it says in the sources?
I can no longer access My OSMC -> App-Store.
It shows me the “Apps”, but pressing a button does not change to the next App. It still gives me a sound then I press Up- or Down-Arrow though.
I was in this Menu in Kodi 17.x and there it worked.
Is this a know Bug in Kodi 18?
Or did installing the netflix addon cause this?
Anyways, if there is no quick Way to fix this:
How do I enable Samba-Filesharing via SSH?
Okey, the “MyOSMC”-bug regarding app-store is known, you can work around that with a mouse connected and move the pointer to hover over the first selection, then you can navigate using your normal way.
Here’s how to install samba-file sharing via ssh:
sudo apt-get install smb-app-osmc
Retroplayer doesn’t support Amiga on Pi yet, as far as i’ve seen.
I tried to some games, but it doesn’t work.
I copied some snes,nes,gba roms onto my pi, but i cant start them.
I added the fodlers in Games, but it cant see them.
Also I have seen in a youtube video, that you should be able to choose which emulator to start, but I can’t choose any…
Is this maybe because I have the OSMC Skin isntalled?
How do I revert to the Kodi one?
In order to get the games to play, you need to enabled the emulator for the games:
For NES i use QuickNES, got Settings ->Add-on browser -> My add-ons -> Game add-ons -> Emulators and enable Nintendo - NES / Famicon (QuickNES)
Next step is to install the controller profile needed, go back to Add-on browser -> Install from repository -> Game add-ons -> Controller profiles, install and enable NES Controller.
There are alot of the emulators, some work some doesn’t, some are better with certain rom files. It’s a trial and error. But all emulators needs controller profiles installed, and i think the will tell you when you try to run the emulator which profiles are needed for that emulator.
