This system is about 2 years in operation with almost no problems.
In the last couple of days however, Kodi playback has been stuttering like there was a download speed problem.
Now that would be the first thing I looked at until I realised that locally stored movies and videos were also stuttering. Even the UI stutters a little. I’m not getting any overheating warnings and don’t have it overclocked. I thought it might be a codec/decoder problem. I’ve checked for updates to Kodi but it seems I’m running the latest version.
If I do a full reboot after leaving it unplugged for a while it will run again for another couple of hours, but then the problem starts again so I’m at a loss.
Could the video chip on the Pi be dying? I haven’t a clue how to diagnose this as its somewhat intermittent and all the software and plugins seems to be working.
