The reason is simply that the OSMC settings are written as a Kodi addon, and Kodi doesn’t provide any way for us to add an addon within the standard Kodi Settings menu.
I think it is possible (I’m not a skin developer) to fake it by customising the skin, but this would only work for the OSMC skin and not for any other skin that the user might switch to, and is likely to break for future versions of Kodi and keep needing tweaking to keep it working with newer Kodi versions. (poor maintainability)
Not ideal, but until Kodi provides a standardised Skin independent way of adding addons within the Settings menu there isn’t much alternative.
Today it found a 95mb update that changed everything to the best yet.
Thinking i might not have run RC2. (After that RC2 update i lost the remotecontrol icon In the OSMC menu?)
Which is Strange. I know i choose RC2 (for pi2) thru the windows installer. I even double checked before installing.
I run extra long movie thru WiFi, no problems.
I run several TV series episodes thru WiFi, no problems.
I run update, installed some subtitle things. No problems.
I streamed tv channel. I have not needed to reboot and no more 1-2 minutes before doing requested things.
Looking foreword to see if it will be even more smooth in RC3. =)
Hi. I’ve been getting much more under-voltage warnings on RPi2 after installing this release. Does this release (firmware?) somehow need more power than the old one? (Old one = not sure if it was an RC1, I lastly installed alpha4 from scratch and then applied updates.)
Alpha 4 on Pi 2 accidentally had the cpu underclocked which would use less power than normal. So yes RC1/RC2 will require more power than Alpha 4 because of this, so if you are seeing the low voltage warning more frequently then your power adaptor is marginal.
The Pi 2 is very demanding of power adaptors (more so than earlier Pi’s) I had to buy one of these power adaptors for my Pi 2 because none of the adaptors I had for my Pi 1 B and Pi 1 B+ or the one which came with my Pi 2 would run it without the low voltage warning flickering up constantly. (In fact one adaptor would not even boot Kodi successfully but works perfectly on my other two Pi’s)
With the above adaptor I no longer see any power warnings on my Pi 2.
This is nice. I have been away for two week and not checking this site either. Now I came home, osmc told me updates available. It took some time to update. In the mean time I learned new RC was available. After uodate finished I checked and voila - I am on RC2 ! Great, this is how it should work.
