Whenever I play a file in kodi, my Vero V freezes for about three minutes. Even the on screen logging informartion in the upper left corner is frozen. Doesn’t matter if it’s indexed library content, a video file selected through the file browser or a YouTube video – it’s always happening. In this log, I pressed play at around 20:23 and it actually started playing at around 20:26. Any idea why? I’m not that good at reading logs… but here it is:
Embuary seems to be doing something in between this.
First easy things to check:
Does temporarily changing skin (and rebooting help)?
If you copy that Simpsons episode to local storage (the eMMC), does it resolve the issue? I ask because I did see an NFS timeout, but I’m not sure if that’s just Kodi recycling the connection after a long delay
Hey everone, as I mentioned, deleting /temp/ solved the issue. However, the freezes/delays keep coming back (solved with another /temp/ delete). I noticed there’s ussually a bunch of OSMCBACKUP*.tar.gz files in /temp/ (deleting justs those solves the freezes too). I get a warning dialog that a backup failed from time to time but nowhere near often enough to explain the amount of abandonend (?) backup files in /temp/. The target for the OSMC tackups is on my NAS. The files copied in the last month or so all appear smaller than the files sitting in /temp/ (100-600 MB on NAS, 1.4 GB in /temp/).
On probably unrelated (?) note, my tv turns on sometimes spontaneously, could be because of a OSMC reboot/crash (?). I think I once witnessed an idling OSMC (nothing playing) with no user input at all throwing a sad face screen and rebooting, could be connected.
Thanks for checking in on my problem, Sam! I started a manual backup. This resulted in a sad face/automatic reboot during the transfer phase (resulting in a 1.4 GB file in /temp/ aand aa 250 MB file on my NAS). Log file here.
I would try making a system mount for your backup location using autofs, changing the backup location to this mount point, reboot, and then try to backup again. If it goes through without crashing then I’d guess that would solve your issue.
On a side note, daily backups seem a bit excessive.
