my Vero 4k+ started misbehaving yesterday. It does not wake up from standy anymore when I press buttons on the remote. I have do to a hard power cycle to get back into the GUI. There’s a debug log available here: http://paste.osmc.tv/ohenojigas.vhdl
The Log is from tonight (about 22:50 on 2019-09-12) - I don’t know why the first several hunderd lines of the log are timestamped 2019-09-08 19:43…
At 22:50:51.827 standby mode is activated.
At 22:50:59.554 button presses of the remote are registered, but the device is not waking up.
This also happened to me. Have mine go all black after 5mins and cannot wake it. I can hear sounds so it seems to be only the picture. Had to remove and insert the power to get it back to normal operations.
It has only happened twice with long time inbetween so I do not have logs, but thought I would chime in.
4k+ with auto updates so Im always on the latest version.
We are aware of the issue your describing but don’t know what is causing it yet. That issue is unrelated to the OP in this thread though. If power cycling is problematic you can use a remote control app on a phone/tablet, or the web UI from any web browser to tell your Vero to reboot.
Is this bug the same as the issue that I am experiencing?
When I pause a movie that image goes darker after a couple of seconds. Same happens when I am in the home screen and don’t do anything for a while. It seems the device goes into a sort of standby mode. But when I resume watching or press a button the image remains dark.
When I switch skins the image immediately gets brighter again.
This problem occurred after having the Vero up and running for 48 hours. Since a reboot the issue went away.
This seems to happen more and more. Before it was very rare, I used Yatse to wake it 2 times in total since 15 september but now it happened 3 times this week and one of those were 2 times in a row because I wasnt fast enough to start a movie.
I have to suspend, and then suspend again in Yatse to see the picture.
Im using kodidefault skin estuary and the unit is on 24/7.
Do we know what causes this and why it doesnt wake the picture? You can hear the clicks and navigate in blind so its only like the suspend screensaver is stuck in front.
What I know is there was a Kodi bug where when the UI got refreshed while the screensaver was activated it could prevent the screensaver from deactivating. There was a patch to work around this and that seemed to fix the issue for most. I see this situation on my machines (RPi’s) on rare occasion as well but I have not been able to nail down anything useful to assist with a fix.
