Twice i’ve transferred innocent video to attached usb - and i get a weird ‘problem with your hdmi’ error (i’ll have to wait for event #3 to get a snapshot).
Reboot fixed the first one, but it took a reboot + 5 min wait for it to come good for the 2nd one (i note that the tv was playing tv during this wait, not data from the vero).
Can’t reach the menus when this happens. Reseating hdmi cable fixes it for about 5 seconds (i don’t like to do that, but thought once or twice would be ok - frankly, i’m more disturbed by the hard power off by yanking usb+power, but i’ve started using the power board switch instead). Also getting a manual update error, but i think the wifi is glitchy after this too (i can still PuTTY in, but my share to the ip address is no longer working - i still don’t know if the update might have wiped that).
History: there have been 2 freezes of the vero (need hard reboot) in the previous month, prior to an update recently.
Extra hardware: powered usb hub with wifi and hard drive attached.
Remember OSMC is basically vanilla Debian + Kodi with few bespoke bits and bobs to make it all play nice on the Vero hardware. So for questions regarding lower level system usage, if not unique to OSMC, then you have the all the accumulated Debian knowledge available on the interwebs at your disposal. There would be little point in duplicating all that on the OSMC wiki …
Oh that’s very cool. The very first linux iso i downloaded was debian, and the first irc comment i got was ‘well, that flavour will learn you or break you’ or something to that effect. I do note that i have only needed help with fstab from wikis and here, and not for much else (even the non-osmc ones) so i can’t complain. My lazy human nature just pines for an easier way.
Ok, problem’s back. I can switch hdmi ports on the tv (without rebooting or anything) and the problem remains. The remote still works tho, so i can use it to stop the video blind, and hit home, and hot-reconnect the hdmi (is that even a thing?), and i can see the main vero display again.
The problem seems independent of hdmi port ( i have 3 on the tv), and these ports are not displaying any problem with other devices (dvd/cabletv), so is it likely that the tv is the source of this problem?
I have switched hdmi cables from original. Can the logs say if the vero is having problems?
 ive also got no network connected to the vero, no usb hub either.
