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


#797

Yes, and I suggest with those generic question not to SPAM the TESTING thread.


#798

That’s a letdown. It’s working on LibreELEC.


#799

That’s not possible.

Are you sure your LibreELEC device isn’t x64, i.e. a PC (which runs X11)?

To clarify: BD folder structure is supported; but BD-J isn’t.


#800

LibreELEC running on Raspberry Pi 3


#801

See here Post #50


#802

I don’t want CEC on my TV. It displays annoying OSD popups on every volume change, it tries to control every CEC device. The implementation is really buggy (± 5 year old Samung TV).

I have further described the problem here: CEC volume control for AVR not working after upgrade to latest kodi version


#803

@gmc I’ve tried enabling cec on my tv, and everything starts working, but I get annoying messages on my tv when i change my volume (my avr also overlays a volume change). I really want cec on my tv disabled.

The log is showing good things:

#804

Please check in more detail. From what I can see standard Blu-Ray menus work: but BD-J doesn’t. That’s the same on OSMC.

I’ll check with LE guys. If JRE is all that’s needed this should be fine; but I suspect that a windowing System such as X11 is needed.

#806

@Acadia: I checked with the developer of the LE community build which added BD-J support. Apparently it does work; so we will look in to it. However, it may require distribution of Oracle’s JRE which would have licensing implications.

I’ve asked for clarification if it still works with GLES platforms


#807

@sam_nazarko Hi Sam. Yes, I did some more testing yesterday. I loaded CoreELEC on my old Vero 4k and BD-J menus are working fine after making the modifications described in the LE forum. It would be great if it could be made a possibility on OSMC even if the user is required to install Oracle JRE themselves. Would be happy to help with any testing if required…


#808

Somethings not right in this version mate, couldn’t play any live TV channels…I reverted back to 17.8-365 and its working perfectly.

Happy to supply any logs/info etc when the footballs finished.

Using TVHeadend and the hts client.


#809

There is a new PR15020 which fixes issues with PR15010 from the previous version. Will add in fix for next nightly.


#810

No worries, I’ll hang fire till then.

Worth mentioning in here in case anyone else runs into the problem before the next nightly is available.


#811

Yep exact same problem for me. Will test again after next nightly


#812

I have the same issue with VNSI client, no more live TV on 366, but reverting works fine. Recordings play fine though.


#813

There are a couple of problems here:

  • Java has licensing issues, and from what I can tell, the Oracle JRE needs to be used as does X11. OpenJRE doesn’t seem suitable.
  • Java is bigger than the OSMC image. That’s quite a large dependency. If libbluray and Kodi could dynamically load Java, then it could be an optional add-on.

For now, it’s not appropriate to include this in OSMC. But we can review this periodically.

Sam

#815

This solves the problem with 17.8-366, where playback wouldn’t start.
Cheers.


#816

Solved the same problem for me too
