Have had this for a few weeks now and performance and stability remain a constant issue.
No files will play despite being there on locally attaches storage and being able to browse folder structure under file manager - a reboot sorts this.
Box hard locks for no apparent reason when idle meaning I have to pull the plug.
Files stuttering and freezing the whole GUI when playing.
I did expect to do some DIY when buying this device but not the extent to where more times than not it being non-functional. Is it likely that KODI or OSMC updates are likely to sort these issues or at least ameliorate them?
Well you shouldn’t have any of these issues, so let’s try to fix them.
Is your "locally attached storage comes with its own power supply or are you using a powered USB hub?
To identify your other issues I suggest you enable debug logging and upload logs via MyOSMC after you encounter the problem next time (more details below)
To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. The best way to get this information is for you to upload logs that demonstrate your problem. You can learn more about how to submit a useful support request here.
Depending on the used skin you have to set the settings-level to standard or higher, in summary:
enable debug logging at settings->system->logging
reboot the OSMC device
reproduce the issue
upload the log set either using the Log Uploader method within the My OSMC menu in the GUI or the ssh method invoking command grab-logs -A
publish the provided URL from the log set upload, here
Thanks for your understanding. We hope that we can help you get up and running again shortly.
