Vero 4K crashes when pausing, forwarding or rewinding

Hi all,

My Vero 4K crashes when I pause video content, or when I try to skip forward or backwards. At first I thought it was only with 4K content but today it also happened with 1080p content. I get the blue screen with the sad smiley and the device reboots.

I can’t really pinpoint when it first started or if something changed that caused this to happen.

If you need more info, please let me know.

Does this always happen with files which have a TrueHD track?


Hi Sam,

I checked the codec info on the files, and it seems that they indeed all have TrueHD tracks .

This is a known issue with Kodi unfortunately. It’s still being worked on.

@sam_nazarko do you know if there is anywhere that the progress of this can be checked as I have noted that it’s all my 4k files but only when the TRUEHD 7.1 audio track is selected?

If I select AC3 5.1 I can skip back and forth just fine which is a plus for now I guess :slight_smile:

EDIT: just spotted this and think it’s the same issue? Kodi 18.4 crashes with high bitrate TrueHD+Atmos audio stream · Issue #16704 · xbmc/xbmc · GitHub

That is indeed the issue

Hi, i think im experience this issue.
Kodi (19.3). Platform: Linux ARM 32-bit
Kodi x32 build (version for Vero)
Kodi compiled 2021-12-20 by GCC 8.3.0 for Linux ARM 32-bit version 4.19.152 (267160)

[Fix] Reworked TrueHD MAT packer to support high bitrate Atmos streams (fix audio dropouts) by thexai · Pull Request #20339 · xbmc/xbmc · GitHub - I tried to follow the breadcrumbs but unable to determine if this PR is in the build (latest?) im running

These fixes are already included in the latest version of OSMC.
