Hi - I bought a Vero 4k+ to replace a WD TV Live. My requirements are to be able to connect to either a network SMB share or a Linux export, and to be able to handle large video files and HEVC/x265 encoding. Seemed like the Vero would fit the bill.
As background, I’m very familiar with Linux; I have several Debian boxes here doing various things, but I know almost nothing about Kodi, etc.
I’ve noticed that my Vero does not seem to be reliable at all. As a side note, it would be very handy if it came with some sort of case light that would tell me if it thinks its powered on. Maybe a future feature.
Anyway, the Vero is always powered on and connected. I can get it to work just fine (still need to figure out a good way to handle subtitles, but that’s a separate issue), but every now and again I will turn on the TV and there will be no display from the Vero box. Nothing, no remote button seems to do anything. So, I unplug the power cable, count to five, plug it back in. I get the red cross on the front for a few seconds, I get a small OSMC icon on the screen, I get a blue screen with the OSMC logo, and then the display completely blanks. Nothing. I repeat the power cable trick, same thing. Only after a non-consistent number of attempts at unplugging/plugging do I get the menus and everything seems to work fine again (until it doesn’t).
Does this sound like a known issue? I’m happy to SSH to the box and look at whatever log files people might suggest to help troubleshoot this.
My first reaction to my Vero was that it seemed great; these power issues, if unresolved, would cause me to completely reverse that opinion.
