If the connection breaks during plugin streaming, then the video stops and the user can restart the stream again, at which point, if the openvpn process has gone away, it'll reconnect. It also checks every hour that it's connected too in case openvpn has crashed. IPTV streaming is different because the plugin doesn't recognise what you're doing (due to boring reasons) so there are no hooks to ensure the connection is good still.
No, I'm not talking about losing the IPTV stream, I'm talking...
I'm running the latest version of openelec, and I am attempting to get the mediapi case working with it. So far I have not had any luck. I added the following to my config:
When I run dmesg I get something:
dmesg | grep lirc_rpi
[ 4.475934] lirc_rpi: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.

I have read the thread and gone through the pages listed there, but it's still confusing to me. I have looked in my Lircmap.xml and remote.xml files (I've not made any changes yet) and frankly, I'm confused as to what to add where. For example, is AudioNextLanguage a specific command? Does it go into the Lircmap.xml file under a specific key binding and then do I edit the remote.xml file to refer to what's in the Lircmap.xml file? I'm confused as to how these files work together to...
I have an old pc with an amd athlon tricore processor and a 6970 gpu
Id like to use it to run Openelec exclusively
Id just like to know the following
Will LIRC work on this.
Will all the hardware I have function? (gpu, cpu, motherboard hardware components (wifi, ethernet, etc) or will I need drivers?
What codecs are available for openelec in this setup?
I want to upgrade my RPi 2 with Hifiberry Digi+ (currently on OE 6.95.3). Before I buy it I want to be sure if I will be able to control volume from KODI as I’m doing it now (HDMI sound). I’m sure there is a lot of users of Hifiberry here so I hope somebody will be able to confirm or deny.
Additionally I’m using GPIO LIRC but from I’ve read all I need to do is to change GPIO pin for LIRC.
I have a Mediapi Plus which comes with a remote and OpenELEC preinstalled on a microSD card. I installed the Raspberry Pi 3 and a 4TB Seagate USB drive. Running the 6.0.3 version works fine with my remote with the exception of the context button (which doubles as an 'enter' or 'OK' button) but upgrading to this beta in order to be more compatible with my addons and skins I find myself missing the home button which acts as a back button. I find my remote now basically useless. Doing an...
OK, so two recommendations for the Rii products. They look nice -- I'm kinda leaning towards the MWK25 or the MX3. As much as a full mouse and keyboard sound cool, I really don't need them so I'd probably never turn the remote over. I'm only using Openelec to play music and videos stored on a network drive, so just a basic play/pause/arrows/OK remote would be plenty.
@shawnleo and JonMMM: I get what you're saying and I do know how to edit those XML files, I've done it plenty of times before....
After my shenanigans this morning with my sound, I thought I'd ask here about another problem I've been facing.
My RPI3 has been running fine, but it seems to have a problem resting. Even when idle I see that 1 random core is a 100% active. Using the 'top' command I can see that "/usr/lib/kodi/kodi.bin --standalone -fs --lircdev /run/lirc/lircd" is the culprit. I'm guessing that's just Kodi, but it seems a bit much usage for an idle program.
I searched around already but only found switching...
