Hey All!

I've built up quite a few NUCs as Media Players over the past 4 years, and have been aware of an issue which I'd like your assistance with to solve once and for all.

One would go into your library, select a TV Show and use the context menu to say "Play from here".
As far as I understand, this creates a playlist of the rest of the episodes in the season and will continue to play all items in the playlist until there is nothing else to play.

Sometimes, not always, the player would freeze on one of these episodes and I'll need to physically reboot the Media Player to get it operational again.

So far I've enabled the debug log file by following this guide: kodi.wiki/view/Log_file/Advanced
I'll post the logs here after the incident occurs again.

My content is stored on quite a descent custom built FreeNAS server, and I access the content over NFS.

I'm currently running a two different NUCs, both on OpenElec v8.04.
1 x Apollo Lake NUC (NUC6CAYS - www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/boards-kits/nuc/kits/nuc6cays.html)
1 x Kaby Lake NUC (NUC7i3BNH - www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/boards-kits/nuc/kits/nuc7i3bnh.html)
Both have been flashed with the updated HDMI Firmware Intel has released.

Is there anything else I can do to assist solving this issue?

Kind Regards,

I'd like to elaborate on the type of freeze I'm experiencing: The picture freezes, the audio keeps on playing.
You can still hear the UI sounds, but as mentioned, the screen is frozen.

Attached are some of the older log files I collected if it's of any use.
I setup one of my media players to play in a cycle, so will post a fresh set of logs when this issue occurs again.
