OSMC's October update is here with Kodi 18.4 - OSMC

Was pleased to see the return of ShaderToy, but I can’t seem to get it working. The music visualisation settings don’t allow me to select any of the presets that used to show. I tried the screensaver but got a “An unknown error occurred”. I installed from the Popcornmix repo though, so maybe I’m looking in the wrong place? Come to think of it, Waveform and Spectrum Analyser aren’t listed either.

They got pulled from this update but should be coming back soon.

Depends on which device the user is running. They’re still active on the Vero.

Thanks for all the hard work, 18.4 is running nicely on my Vero 4k+ (updated it 24H ago).

Prepare initial Raspberry Pi 4 support means that you know ETA?
Is it possible to be beta tester of early version rpi4? :wink:

There will indeed be some internal testing for Pi 4 and I’ll pick a few users familiar with OSMC nearer the time.


Im so looking forward to screensavers again

@sam_nazarko, will you be building system images for the october update?

They have already been built


I cannot find them in the download section. The osmc installer does also only offer to install 2019.07-1. It would be great, if those images (especially for Vero4K) would be released.

Since the very first release of OSMC, updated images have always been made available at our earliest convenience. Depending on any number of factors, this can be at best within hours of release, but could take up to a couple days. Everyone involved have lives outside of OSMC that often must come first.

Can somebody advise how to access the 21:9 mode in the OSMC skin as I cannot find it?

If you set a 21:9 output resolution, the skin will change accordingly. That’s the 21:9 mode.

Updated images have since been made available on the download page and blog.

Dear Sam,

Unfortunatelly audio passthrough/multichannel audio based on Hifiberry Digi is broken with current kernel. Falling back to previous version helps, details here:

same problem here on vero2 (still with latest update and after trying: sudo apt-get install --reinstall vero2-mediacenter-osmc

lircd seems to be failing

Sorry – bit confused. What’s the same problem? Are you referring to another post?
Can you please start a new post with logs?
