This is expected behavior, at least with a RPi (no clue w/Vero), If you have the CEC options set to allow TV power control. I think if you manually reboot via Kodi the TV stays on but if you issue “reboot” via CLI the TV turns off and then comes back on when Kodi loads again. This is not new behavior as i’d noticed this before the June 2020 update when I first enabled those options as part of OSMC remote keymap testing.
I noticed problem with ALSA and Pulseaudio. After upgrade I lost Pulseaudio from “audio output” in KODI. Also ALSA sink in Pulseaudio is only mono (without other profile available). Aplay -l shows Pulseaudio, and its accessible from console, but not seen in KODI. I think about fresh install, but no image available.
Can anyone confirm?
Is there a change log? I’ve been searching on the forums and I can’t find one.
Just updated one Pi and my remote doesn’t work anymore. I’m guessing buster changes things with gpio-ir and/or LIRC?
The change log is in the original post and on the blog
We need to see logs and ideally your LIRC config.
We had some initial issues with Buster and LIRC, but these were reported as fixed.
Check out: Buster test rc6-mce remote some keys not working.
It’s hard to comment what the issue may be, particularly as you do not even mention which device you are running OSMC on. I’d suggest starting a new forum post with logs.
All I see from the original post is the info below. I cannot find any additional details.
Additional details can be found on https://github.com/osmc/osmc/compare/2020.03-1...2020.10-1
Thanks! A bit more detail than I need but more is always better.
Debian updates from Stretch (9) to Buster (10)
Kodi updates from v18.7 to v18.8.
There were a number of skin improvements. We’ll write about this later this week as it deserves a separate post.
You can see the Kodi blog for more details.
That’s it. The Debian update gives us a newer toolchain (which means we get some performance improvements); and the newer Debian version means we have packages which have had their versions bumped (newer) and every version of Debian has more packages in its APT repository (so more packages to choose from).
Hope this helps.
I think I’ve figured it out. New version of LIRC doesn’t seem to like include statements in the lircd.conf file. Annoying as I use 8 different config files so that any remote will work with any media center in the house and for ir sending purposes but merging them all in to one file with no includes seems to be working.
We updated to 0.9.4, so that may be your issue.
First off thanks for the great work, I have been enjoying osmc for years.
Unfortunately the upgrade didn’t go well for me. I am probably a minority case, as I have been using btrfs as root fs for years, followed recipe at https://discourse.osmc.tv/t/looking-for-backup-tools-i-found-these/15221/10 and all was perfect through many upgrades. Not this time, I very early in the boot process end up on a console complaining about missing init files. To have the system boot I just restored the previous /boot partition which still has the 4.19.122-1 kernel on, and all good. Not sure what changed with 4.19.122-2 (a minor upgrade I would think), but it breaks boot process. I have a Pi2B.
As usual please open a new thread. But most likely your best bet would be a new install with a buster image as soon as they are published.
Ok I’ll do that tonight. Any chance that osmc now actually supports btrfs so that I could try to just boot without building a separate initrd file? I think I know the answer is “no”, but I’d love to be surprised…
@sam_nazarko just curious about the kernel if you got plans to bump it to 5.4 or higher in the near future ? since it includes alot of optimizations for rpi and if you go above 5.6 then wireguard is supported out of the box
Thanks for the update. Updating worked without any issues, but I encountered a strange thing: When opening the MyOSMC (circle-) menu in my Vero4k I seem to be stuck there. I can‘t exit this menu with any button or trick (except unpowering).
Can anybody confirm this?
Best from Germany,
No - but I’m happy to accept a PR to add support for this
Figured it out.
I’m using mele f10 remote controller, and now after the update the power button shuts down vero, it used to open the power menu where I could choose what to do
