I just got my Vero 4K+ last week, but unfortunatly it has not been running as good as I had expected and read from other users. The problem is basically that the Vero freezes randomly, and has to be rebooted. Below is some things I have noted about my problem/setup:
- The device is never warm to the touch when it freezes.
- I am still able to SSH into the device and either reboot it or restart kodi by use of
sudo systemctl stop/start mediacenter
- I have no external devices attached, besides the accompanying RF remote control (love that btw).
- My media sources are mounted through fstab and all work fine (as in I can browse and play media through them).
- The Vero is connected directly to the TV.
I should note, that about a day or two into having received and set up the device, I ran into a problem where it would freeze when I cleaned the library. I suspected (because of this: Clean Library hangs - looking for removed network share?) that this was related to an fstab entry that I was no longer using (one of my first tries), but that Kodi somehow still had library entries to this mount point. I therefore deleted the “.kodi” folder, to completely reset the kodi setup and try again.
Today I managed to reproduce at least one problem that got it freezing. I navigated to an entry in the library, tried to play it, and then Kodi froze. I could restart it with systemctl, and get it to freeze the same way again. The debug logs uploaded from MyOSMC are located here: https://paste.osmc.tv/vegekuxumu
I have previously been running OSMC on a Rpi3 and besides the use of fstab and a concurrent upgrade to a 4K tv (which spawned my Vero purchase), nothing has been changed to the setup or my configuration of the device.
I tried to reinstall the device from scratch, just to elliminate any wrongdoings I might have caused by messing with fstab and removing the .kodi folder. However, the installer didn’t have an entry for a Vero 4K+, and the 4K option didn’t show the OSMC version my device had preinstalled. So I opted not to risk it.
Is there anything I can try to do to get this working as flawlessly all the time, as it does between freezes? Beside these intermittent freezes, it is a wonderful little device, running fast and responsive, and I’m happy I got it
Thanks in advance for any help - it is much appreciated!
