since the update to Kodi 18.2+ I got a few weird problems that I did not have with the previous version:
Crashing often with channel switching (TVHeadend 4.2 running on the Vero as localhost). Very often I see the sad smiley face after switching to another channel. I will upload a debug log after crashing.
Very annoying and serious: It is nary impossible to control the Vero with my Harmony Smarthub Bluetooth remote - sometimes a keypress isn’t even recognized, sometimes the cursor jumps at lighting speed after a keypress. I re-paired everything already - still the same. It is very frustrating if you try to scroll through a long list of channels - sometimes it starts to jump a dozen pages at once.
This needs to be fixed, really.
The Vero and the lighting in the room is controlled via my own Smarthome system (ioBroker and the Kodi adapter). The lights are controlled (dimmed) with the actual Kodi state (play, pause or stop).
This does not work anymore - once I press “pause” the state stays at “pause”, no matter what I do - hence the lights stay on. I assume the reason for this is the same as problem 2 above.
I press the key “play” |“pause” once but the keypress is then send to Kodi multiple times - so if I press “play - pause - play” Kodi gets “play - pause - play - pause” - the media plays fine but the state is still set to “pause” until I press “stop”. I also assume that “play” and “pause” are the same commands - they are just toggling between two states.
I assume that if problem 2 is fixed, problem 3 goes away as well.
Hope I could explain it as good as possible with my english knowledge.
Thing is - when a new version comes out, I never update right away because of the “fine” tuning that needs to be done.
I have 3 girls + wife at home - and if the Vero+Kodi does not work, it is hell on earth
So no, I won’t be able to help out here this time. Sorry.
That’s not what I wrote - I did reading the upgrade notice very carefully and was looking forward to the new Kodi 18.2 so I did confirm the update and hit OK - from my standpoint there was no reason to not update the system (I’m in IT since 1986 so I should have known better).
