Is that todo with Kodi move to python 3 or somethig ? I know this is not a forum for addons but i thought maybe someone knows something or just to know it somone got theese addons working and the error is on my end.

thx alot!

Did you install Kodi v19?

no i didnt. youre right. python3 move was just for v19 right ? Im ony latest osmc, march that is

Then you should post logs, so we can identify the problem.


i thought i just did. You mea the whole log ? lemme read i rules how todo best and will get back to you, long time ago

This will help.

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 twice(!)

  • 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.
