OSMC's February update is here - OSMC

so there is just one package to install?

No – the update consisted of multiple packages.

Please start a new post if you continue to have issues.

Please see this thread for more information, it’s going to need a bit of testing and work.


I had to turn off the wired network to get the update over the wireless, but it worked much easier than the last few. (VERO 2)

Thanks for all of your work, folks!

It seems this update has broken my Bluetooth dongle (official dongle, bought from the OSMC store). After the update the Bluetooth menu item was missing from MY OSMC/Network but I could make the system recognize it by plugging out and in. Still, turning on the device does not work. Neither from the GUI nor using bluetoothctl (power on command).

I get a generic error:

[bluetooth]# power on
Failed to set power on: org.bluez.Error.Blocked

A post was split to a new topic: AVR passthrough not working after February update

Please start a new thread for this and post debug logs.

Indeed — we would need to know what device you’re using and see a log


For some reason I can not update osmc on vero4

Please post complete logs in a separate thread

Hi Sam

Thx for update and hard work but…

There is a chance to restore January version of OSMC? On February version banding is a lot more visable than in January :frowning:

Best regards

You can indeed. See https://osmc.tv/download.


But I need to install everything from beginning…or not?
On February update banding is so bad that I can’t watch anything in HDR on my Philips POS 9002 (it looks terrible)

Best regards

Backup via MyOSMC and Restore

It’s to late I didn’t make a backup before:frowning:
How to install from beginning?
This version is unwatchable for 4k HDR movies.

You don’t need to make the backup before as the backup will just backup/restore your .kodi folder.
So just backup now.


Thank You very much

Sorry for my upper posts…
I changed video setting in my TV and banding in February update is the same (or only a little bit worst) like in January (it’s acceptable).

It is my fault (I changed setting to play on my PS4 and I forgot to change it to watch movies:frowning:

Sorry for this

Best regards


Can you let us know what settings you changed and the make and model of your TV? It might help other users that experience the same problem.


I have Philips POS 9002.

To disable flickering I enabled: Noise reduction and MPEG disortion (there is no flickering whet that options are checked and banding is also smaller- also in January update)

Settings in HDR mode:
HDR mode natural:

To minimize banding I set color to 50. Brightness to 50. Contrast - 100

Colour enchancment - OFF
HDR Perfect - Minimum
Contrast - Optimized for picture

Other settings doesn’t matter.

Best regards
