[TESTING] Kodi 18 (Leia) builds for Vero 2 & 4K

You can always re-install of course to go back to any release. The gmc-18 repo is not being updated nightly any more so you won’t see any fixes unless you go to gmc-19 or wait for the OSMC 18.1 release candidate.

OK, log is in here. Fixed the hardware not decoding by turning it off then back on again. I could not replicate movie screen freezes this time but had plenty of network streaming issues that were not there on 17.6.

Found the cause for my second problem above:

Activating any whitelist-resolution @25Hz causes that some of my DVD iso files (576p@25) will not play at all (just a black screen) with the above posted log output over and over again. Limiting the whitelisted resolutions to anything but 25Hz fixes this in my case which is not ideal, but OK.

Is/was this a known issue with the latest 18.1 nightly? Will it get addressed?

Quick question. Will the improvement/changes applied since change of sources to gmc-19 still be included in the next update? Or the succeeding update?

Which changes are you referring to?

All the changes after we switched to gmc-19. Example, the 18.8-13, 30 March 2019

All these changes are included. The only thing that’s changed is the version number.

Well that was a saga, about 10 days ago I was getting red light / crash on updating mediacenter-skin-osmc.

Purging, reinstalling, force removing the package were all no go and I was very close to doing a clean install.

Had to reinstall dpkg itself in the end and then reinstall the skin since I’d removed it, then update as normal.

I’d like to know how to go back to the stable 17.6. These dailys are causing me all sorts of strife. I posted a log a few posts back and no-one looked at it.
Network delays, subtitles are all out of sync, vero will not go into suspend, keeps telling me there is “no backup folder set” etc etc etc.

You will have to reinstall OSMC with the most recent image (December).

Not true. But no-one could discover what the issue is, it seems. You may well find reinstallation and again upgrading to Leia fixes the problems.

right - how does one do this?

See Reinstalling OSMC - Vero 4K - OSMC

During the install of the nightly build, I get this:

I assume we always choose the first option?

If you have made any changes to the ssh config file go for the 2nd option, otherwise use first option.

OK, reinstalled 17.6 and with no addons upgraded to the nightly 18.8-15.

  1. turning the device to suspend will only work about 10% of the time, the rest it goes blank then wakes immediately. No other device/hardware changes made to my system.
  2. non-repeatable network lag, comes and goes.
  3. when clicking on a movie in the library, sometimes you get the spinning blue wheel of death, then pops back to the library window without playing the movie. When chasing down the actual file from “videos” the movie plays fine. If you try enough times it will eventually play, usually.
  4. freezing when skipping forward, not necessarily repeatable.

Thanks for testing. FWIW, I get (3) on 17.6 when my NAS HDD has gone to sleep. It just needs clicking again. I don’t have the knowledge to find the timeouts involved.
