We don't list any images as v16 or v17, but anything after January 2017 is Krypton.
Good to know.
You say this is normal, but it doesn't sound normal to me. What exactly did you change? If this is a bug in OSMC we'd rather get this fixed for all users. Please describe your receiver and remote too (dmesg or lsusb is appreciated). Most people using rc6 remotes are using GPIO receivers.
I use an rc6 (cheap roswell) with a USB interface. Always have to rm the lirc.conf and manually symlink the rc6*conf to it. That fixes everything. I don't have anything connected to the GPIO.
It's in the repositories.
Looked for it under "Get more ... " in the Skins tab. Nothing came back. Had to move on to other things.
I believe you. I'm loving the way that recording from an HDHR4 is just a wget with a specific URL and use the timeout command to end the recording. Even a r-pi should be able to record 4 streams concurrently, if the USB I/O can keep up. I know 2 streams works, but since my media isn't on the r-pi, I don't record on it. a $100 "server" w/ a G3258 handles that stuff. Happy to share my timeout-wget script if it would help. Really simplifies recording. I use at for scheduling. This is for add-hoc stuff. 7MC is still the main recording system here (cough, cough). I'm embarrassed to say. Free schedule data is compelling.
Kodi Krypton changed the video overlays that are displayed during playback. If you would like to make suggestions for changes then their forum is the best place.
I have lots of suggestions today, but really should give it a week to see what grows on me and what doesn't. At this point the only thing I've noticed is that images don't update nearly often enough when FFwd is used. Seems to be 20x less than on the older version.
Thanks for all you guys do. Feel free to ignore my rants. I had planned other things to be done today.
