I recently purchased a Vero 4K+ and I am still finding my way around it. There are so many things that it does automatically that I find myself being impressed with the integration with my TV and home stereo amp.
I’ve run into a few issues that thanks to the forum and my own linux knowledge, I have been able to resolve. But this one is causing me frustration. Any help or advice is appreciated.
Eps and Films play just fine. Music, however, has many issues. Some are interface related and may be due to my inexperience with Kodi/Vero. example: The option auto-play next doesn’t seem to work.
The one issue that it making music playback impossible is when I select a file to play, it quite often stops part way through and the whole kodi interface locks up. The display on the TV just freezes, the remote doesn’t respond. Turning the TV off does not put the Vero into suspend as it usually does in this situation. I can recover the Vero by logging in via SSH and issuing a ‘reboot’. Sometimes playback will just pause for 10 secs to a minute and then continue. Other times I get a light blue screen with an unhappy face on it where after a time Kodi will restart.
My music library is only 23k+ songs at the moment and is sitting on an exFAT 5TB USB 3.0 external drive that is attached via the OSMC powered hub that I bought with the Vero4K+. My movies are also sitting on another such drive and have no troubles playing 4K films. (I’m watching one now as I type this) - I have tested the drive that the music is stored on via another system and there are no errors, transfer speed is up to spec (135MB/s - USB3) and all files are readable. VLC plays the files just fine under windows.
Currently these external USB drives are being auto-mounted under /media. I would like to mount them permanently under /mnt but have not yet been able to accomplish that. My adding them to /etc/fstab using UUID’s only caused the Vero to go into emergency boot mode. (I recovered from that just fine though)
I have installed the recent OSMC November update and just this morning there were additional updates that I also installed. I still have the same issues as described above.
Any assistance is appreciated.
