Network disconnect

I’m using OSMC latest stable release.
I’ve got the following setup:
Pi 2
Cable network

When I disconnect the network cable (to use it in my XBOX One) the Pi becomes useless (well, d’oh :slight_smile: ). The issue is that when I reconnect the cable OSMC / Kodi just crashes when I try to do play a video. Only way to get it working is a restart by unplugging power and reconnecting power.
Any takes on how to solve it? I would like to be able to disconnect / reconnect network cable without having to reboot the Pi 2.
Bonus info: looking at the System Info it does seem to get an IP…

Hope someone can shed some light on this issue.

Best regards and thanks in advance

You should assign static ips to the pi and your nas. Maybe it gets confused if one of them gets a different one via dns.
Also not sure how robust mysql is when polling a non existent network connection. Probably that causes osmc to crash.

I couldn’t live like that.

I would buy a £5 network switch.

Will try this :slight_smile: Thanks

You’re right!
20£ switch ordered :stuck_out_tongue:

Don’t deliberately disconnect the network connection on a MySQL install of Kodi - it will cause it to hang.
