Sadly, watching any movie is now problematic. For no apparent reason - a movie will hang. After anywhere from 5 to 45 seconds, the film will start again but be totally out of sync and generally no longer watchable. You either have to stop the film and hope it remembers where you are or simply start it again and skip back to where you were. I find literally no reason why this has occurred.

I am unable to remotely connect to the box in any way apart from being able to ping it. I must say, this is a horrid release and generally is unworkable. I'm moving back to 7.x as this actually functioned without any issues.

Not Stable on X86 AM1 HTPC. This version frequently hangs when trying to connect to NAS. Totally unacceptable. Also there are new weird problems with HDMI pass-thru. Dolby Digital Plus is hit or miss on getting recognized. I tried Libreelec from a thumb drive and these problems vanish. I'll run off the thumb drive for a few days, but Openelec needs a truly stable update to be usable.

Huh. Well, my HP MCE remote temporarily stopped working after this update. Some mucking about later, I tried unplugging the receiver USB and reconnecting it. That did the trick and now it's back.

Maybe that will help someone.

Hi.

Surprisingly I'm not having most of the issues on update to OpenELEC 8.0.4 . However, few are:

enable some more SOC sound drivers for RPi/RPi2 builds.
enable Regulator support on all builds.
enable Extcon support on all builds.

Also I have some Platform change issues

New Platform WeTek Play 2Play 2 supported with a own Build.
The problem is Signing/agreeing to third-party app permissions, or logging into these services features a security threat. Another dangerous cause leading to online privacy fraud, which we overlook most of the times, is when we grant too many permissions while downloading, or signing for a product or service

I hope some of these problems solved when it comes to personal privacy.

Also on RPi2. Upgraded from 8.0.3. Quasar plugin works now, before it did not. Removable USB storage is being mounted now as well.
The only thing not working is the Settings - OpenELEC menu.

Works fine on Rpi2. No obvious regressions from 8.0.3. Your announcement says kodi-17,3 instead of-17.3. Almost didn't upgrade because finding 17.3 came up empty. Kodi 17.1 had a security issue so openelec 8.0.4 is worth it just for kodi 17.3..
Thanks.

The new libcec seems to hang on load (since upgrade to 8.0.3).

Now it hangs when displaying "Pulse cec...", even the notification sound keep hang/repeating.

Still having issues on 8.0.3 just like 8.0.2 and 8.0.1. PVR Addons do not show up on TV tab when I select which addon to choose it gives me a blank list. If i go into the openelec official repo I can then see the pvr addons and install them except HDHomerun, the one I need, when it errors it says its installed but is disabled and when I try to enable it gives me the same error as when I installed it the error is "can't load shared library"

Please advise

Hi,
First of all, thanks for the hard work, it is greatly appreciated.
I am having issues with Openelec 8.0.3; randomly during playback, Openelec freezes and sometimes my Shuttle XS36V restarts or simply shuts down.
I did not have that problem with Openelec 8.0.2.
I attached the logs
Thanks for looking into that

EUREKA!

Been Googling around for Samba-related issues and found this post over on the LibreELEC forums:

Specifically, post #9!
The thread has a lot of details in it about how KODI seems to handle Samba connections using an apparently antiquated SMB library, but when I tried the solution in post #9, my problems on my OpenELEC 8.0.2 test box immediately went away and are surviving reboots. I'm able to add sources and consistently browse the file structure of those sources. Searching for sources by browsing the Windows Network is also working now, although my server machine is not showing up for some reason.

Anyway, with this apparently solved (ok, worked around), I may give 8.0.2 another shot with MySQL and see what results I get now!

EDIT: Deleted all my sources and dropped the advancedsettings.xml file onto the box and rebooted. Database got built and appears to be working, but my workaround for my SMB shares has broken on me. Back to the drawing board!

EDIT #2: Figured this out, FINALLY! I tried recreating my sources and instead of referencing the server by name, I referenced it by IP address, and this has solved all of my Samba Share issues. I'm now able to consistently browse the files on my server even between multiple reboots and MySQL is functioning as it should. I guess I never considered this option since I've always been able to reference my server by name in previous versions.

Been working on this for a while tonight because I really want to get my HTPC's back up and running!

So I downgraded to 7.0.1. Verified that MySQL connectivity is working, set up one Music source through SMB to my Windows 2012 R2 server. With 8.0.2, if I tried to browse the Windows Network, which should have brought up a WORKGROUP list, it would just sit there and spin, and if I ESC'ed out and tried another SMB operation, the system would lock. Under 7.0.1, I'm able to browse the Windows Network, successfully added a source for Music, was able to browse the files, survived between reboots and successfully scraped into the database.

Decided to grab my other Intel NUC and put 8.0.2 on it again, this time leaving the Estuary skin running. In my previous attempts, I'd changed the skin back to Confluence, so I was trying to eliminate some sort of issue with the skin as the problem. I went in (no MySQL set up on it, using local database) and tried to browse the Windows Network, but after about 30 seconds or so, it gave up and showed me no workgroups to browse. Went back, manually entered my source with same credentials and everything as on 7.0.1, and I was able to get into the share and browse around a little. Rebooted the NUC. When I went right to the Music -> Files section and browsed my Music source, I just got the spinning circles. Waited about a minute and hit ESC which gave me the error "Couldn't connect to network server."

At this point, all I can point to is some sort of fundamental flaw in the samba client in the 8.0.x releases.

I've attached the log files from this stab at 8.0.2. The interesting bits are between 03:08:46.076 and 3:13:11.317.

OK, did some more testing with this, turned debug logging on and selected the SAMBA Library for component-level logging. I tried adding my source again and after going through "Add Network Location..." the system locked up again.

Then I saw this thread: which talked about disabling the OpenELEC samba server. I turned off the samba server, rebooted, went back to add my source. I tried to browse the Windows network and got error 2, but I went ahead and entered my source manually and after I clicked OK, the dialog closed and the path was listed in the Browse window. I could select it and it would show my folder structure on my server. I said OK, it added the source, then I was able to browse through the Files dialog. Then I rebooted, went right back to Music (the submenu under the heading was blank, by the way, nothing listed about Playlists, Files or Add-ons), went to browse my source and got the spinning "Working..." in the corner, but no file list. In the logs I am attaching, I believe this occurred between 20:24:29.198 and 20:26:42.591 which is the point where I hit the escape key and got the error about unable to connect to the remote share. Attempted to change the machine name in the OpenELEC Configuration to "FamilyRoom" and then tried to open the music source again which resulted in the lockup at 20:28:50.123

I've attached some of the log files from these tests. Hopefully they shed more light on what's going on.

After messing around with Plex for a few days and finding the embedded client options there disappointing, I've decided to give OpenELEC 8.0.2 another go.
I installed a fresh copy of MySQL on my server, set it up according to instructions. Installed OpenELEC 8.0.2 on one of my Intel NUC's. verified all settings were good, and then created the advancedsettings.xml file. New databases were created upon reboot and appear to be being read correctly on subsequent reboots, so the database issue might now be resolved.

Attempting to add a media source through SMB is still not working. When I went to create a new Music source, I tried to browse the Windows network to start with and all I got in the lower corner was "Working..." and a circle spinning for close to a minute. Hit ESC to go back and manually entered the source information through "Add a Network Location..." After entering the correct information and clicking OK, OpenELEC locked completely up. Required a hard reboot. Went back in to create a source and instead of trying to browse the network first, went straight to "Add a Network Location...", entered the information as before and when I selected OK, the system immediately locked up once more. The SAMBA client on OpenELEC 8.0.2 is broken.

I've attached the last set of logs, but not sure what help they will be.

Hi. I have an issue using both 8.0.1 and 8.0.2. I cant see the Audio hdmi connection in settings so i have no audio at all. I went back to 7.0.1 and sees the hdmi audio connection straight away. I use LG smart tv.

Hi! Just to tell you that with 8.0.2 my automount problems went away. Also the new Kodi can play all my ripped DVD (with OE 7.0.1 some of them would not go after the first screen).

Thank you very much for your work!!!

I don't have a log to post at the moment, but when I shut down my system, which includes the TV, Amp and Zotac box via a Harmony One remote, the Zotac box does not shut down. This does not happen with Helix, Isengard, Jarvis or Leia. I'll try to post a log at some point tomorrow.

Thanks,

Upgraded manually from the previous 7.0 to 8.0 (and now automatically updated to 8.0.2). Efter the first manual upgrade I had to manually add all my libraries and rescrabe them. Every library item was "lost". And every setting as well as far as I could see.

But worser still: video playback now "stutters" on every movie or TV-item no matter the source, quality, compression level etc. Files that played perfectly on the same HW (Intel NUC) in version 7. Not much but skips frames every now and then and it's very anoying to whatch.

Any one else sees this and what to do? Have never been a problem on previous versions; have been using OpenElec for ages...

Sorry. Gave too little information.
The remotes I use are those HP Notebook Laptop PC Windows Media Center Remote Control 464959-001.
IR module connected is: 38 kHz TSOP4838 DIP-3 IR Receiver Module.
Problem: after upgrade to 8.0.2 remote not working anymore.
Log's: would need to figure out how to get to them.

Who said we removed support for IR remotes? LIRC was *only* used for classic XBOX remotes, some serial remotes (included here with a new driver) and RPI gpio remotes (which work with another driver too without LIRC). so the *only* remotes actually which will be dropped are the classic XBOX remote, which are hard to get this days and needs some soldering work to connect to USB. Other then that it was already dropped with 8.0.0. If you have problems with your remote please specify your problem and provide logs, then doing assumptions.

As another follow-up to my 8.0.2 issues...
I just did a fresh install of 8.0.2 on one of my Intel NUC's. After getting the basic config done and setting its IP, I copied my sources.xml and passwords.xml back to the machine, which I copied them from prior to the re-install. After rebooting to make sure the new config files took effect, I attempted to browse to one of the shares on my Windows server and all I got was a spinning circle and "Working..." in the lower corner that stayed there for many minutes. Clicking Back on my remote got me an error that it could not contact the remote server. Attempting to browse again resulted in a hard lockup of the system.

Thinking maybe something had changed in the config file format for the sources, I rebooted, removed all my sources, and re-added them one at a time and made sure I could browse them. This seemed to work and I could browse all of my file shares. Then I attempted to get MySQL working again. I copied over the advancedsettings.xml, made sure the 8.0 databases were gone, rebooted... Kodi saw the older 6.0.3 database and migrated it. Everything appeared to be correct, but when I went to play something.....hard lockup. After rebooting again, attempting to browse any of my sources gets me the "Working..." ad nauseum again.

Seems like something is screwed up in the samba client. I am going to attempt downgrading to 8.0.1 and staying there, or taking a look at moving to Plex if my problems continue. I've been using OpenELEC for a long time, and have always loved it, but this upgrade has given me too many headaches.

I'm attaching the last 8.0.2 log file before I downgrade.

As a follow-up to my previous post, I attempted to upgrade my other Intel NUC running 8.0.1 to 8.0.2. I shut down all other OpenELEC devices, deleted the newer databases from my MySQL and restarted the NUC to upgrade the database. Everything ran fine at this point, Videos, Movies, TV Shows, and Music all showed up on the main screen, except for a few newer items. Those newer items scraped into the database successfully. Upgraded the NUC to 8.0.2

My Music data is completely gone again, but this time I'm not having any issues accessing my Samba shares. No database upgrade was performed between 8.0.1 and 8.0.2, so not sure why this is reoccurring.

I've attached the latest logfiles from NUC #2. I will probably have to reinstall NUC #1 from scratch.

Upgraded yesterday from 6.0.3 to 8.0.1, with some issues regarding the MySQL database, but was able to correct them. Everything working fine by late afternoon.

A few hours later, I see that 8.0.2 was released, so I upgraded one of my Intel NUC's to it. (I have 4 client machines in total, 2 Intel NUC, 2 Raspberry Pi.) From that point on, the system would completely lock up whenever I tried to play a media file or even browse my media sources that are stored on a Windows server through SMB. Downgrading to 8.0.1 did not restore functionality. MySQL database issues also mainfested themselves again (MyVideos database is accessible and showing information, MyMusic shows no content and rescraping does not put the content back.)

What logfiles do you need for this?

Hi.

Just updated on RPI2 from 8.0.1 to 8.0.2, and now watching TV using the DVBViewer Addon is outright broken 100%. It plays the TV Stream for somewhere between 2 and 10 seconds (actually depending on the bitrate, HD Streams play max 3 seconds, SD channels for about 10) just fine, and then Kodi just restarts itself (just Kodi, not the whole system).

Let me know if and what further information I can post to debug this if wanted. Otherwise I'll roll back to 8.01.

please post the logfile you find in the logiles samba share, and make a new thread about this problem

Upgrade from 8.0.0 to 8.0.1 but still automount doesn't work so I manually create autostart.sh now it automount but still not auto share on the network and smbd restart not working. It only works from the setting interface to re-enable drive sharing. I need a solution so it can automount and auto share on the network.

Pl. tell me how I can re-enable drive sharing from ssh for time being.

My drive file system is extented fat.

I am looking for permanent solution.

Hi, I updated from OpenElec 6.0.3 (I think) to 8.1 (cubox-i pro) and several movies that previosly were OK now are freezing (while sound is ok) at the same point every time. These movies are 720p while others at 1080p are playing well. I'm playing over network (NFS) like with openelec 6.x and I thing this problem is not related with network but with playback.
I did a tail -f on kodi.log while playing these movies and when the freeze happens it writes several times the same line:
WARNING: CRenderManager::WaitForBuffer - timeout waiting for buffer

I tried a fresh install and the problem is still there. It happend on many videos that I could play without problems before, with same network configuration. The wierd thing is that those freezes are not random, they happens at the same point every time. CPU is not going specially high on those freezes.

Anyone else having this problem?

EDIT1: I tried with a fresh openelec 7.0.1 install and it works, no freezes. It seems a problem with 8.0.1 on certain videos on playback.
EDIT2: Tried Libreelec 8 and problem is there again. Its mostly Kodi 17 the problem. Cubox-i 4pro playback is broken in Kodi 17. Look here: www.reddit.com/r/kodi/comments/5tov7r/updated_to_krypton_videos_freeze_disablin/?st=j1t13yu7&sh=5ec9d145

Have you upgraded to 8.0.1? The transition to samba4.conf in 8.0.1 should ignore the old incompatible samba.conf and return openelec's samba shares to their default working order. If you want to customize samba (change workgroup or add shares) then you need to copy the (new to 8.0.1) file samba4.conf.sample to samba4.conf and edit it with your changes.

If you are stuck with 8.0.0 and don't know how to upgrade without the "Update" share being accessible. Install "putty" on Windows. With putty, ssh login to your openelec system with username "root" and with password "openelec" (without quotes). At the prompt issue this command:
mv /storage/.config/samba.conf /storage/.config/samba3.c
onf
Now reboot with the kodi menu or issue the "reboot" command at the prompt.

After rebooting, your openelec 8.0.0 samba shares should be back to their defaults since the old incompatible samba.conf is gone (saved as samba3.conf). Now update to 8.0.1 as usual using the now working "Update" samba share.

everything else is working fine since the 8.0.1 update (automount fix thanks!), but how can i resolve this annoying flashing led problem on 8.0.1 without a full reinstall? anyone got any suggestions? how was this actually fixed in the 8.0.1 update?

I installed OE 8.0.1 and LE 8.0.1 on 2 flash drives. I ran them both in Live mode - connected to an Intel NUC. LibreELEC worked and connected to my SMB (Samba) network shares. OpenELEC failed to connect to my SMB (Samba) shares and then froze my NUC. I had to press the power button to shut it off.

I would like to stay with OE but can't recommend OE 8.0.1 to anyone unless it runs on my setup.

The samba issue explanation/solution by sraue is now in post #64 no longer #68 (some earlier posts were deleted?). Essentially openelec had a major samba upgrade and unless you made a fresh openelec 8.0.0 install, you're still using an older incompatible samba configuration file.

Thank you for the very clear explanation. I'm no coder but why wouldn't an upgrade take care of the Samba issue ?

Ou,

Lirc removed? I use Lirc + TSOP4038 on all Rpi's, connected to the Non-CEC TV (or where CEC doesnt work 100%). Thats bad news for me :(

Related to MariaDB, I thought that Kodi developers say that MariaDB isnt mature enough and has some troubles with MySQL querries (act differently on some versions, ie. not the same behauviour on all versions of MariaDB) - forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=260568 etc. Was this resolved already?

I also use the TSOP4038, on all of my Rpis'.

and its not working? you dont need lirc using RPi's GPIO IR.:
use
dtoverlay=gpio-ir,gpio_pin=18,gpio_pull=1,rc-map-name=rc-rc6-mce
(be sure setting the right pin)

I think I need it, or atleast I thought that I use it for mapping buttons (dtoverlay=lirc-rpi, irrecord -f /storage/.config/lircd.conf, as stated on wiki.openelec.tv/index.php/Guide_To_lirc_rpi_GPIO_Receiver).

I using all kind of remotes (usually from old VHS recorders etc.), for different setups :)

I make some digging, and found in github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/blob/master/boot/overlays/README :
Name:   gpio-ir
Info:   Use GPIO pin as rc-core style infrared receiver input. The rc-core-
        based gpio_ir_recv driver maps received keys directly to a
        /dev/input/event* device, all decoding is done by the kernel - LIRC is
        not required! The key mapping and other decoding parameters can be
        configured by "ir-keytable" tool.
Load:   dtoverlay=gpio-ir,<param>=<val>
Params: gpio_pin                Input pin number. Default is 18.

        gpio_pull               Desired pull-up/down state (off, down, up)
                                Default is "down".

        rc-map-name             Default rc keymap (can also be changed by
                                ir-keytable), defaults to "rc-rc6-mce"

Google didnt throw much tutorials according this, as you sure know this things, could you little bit explain lirc/gpio-ir differences, pros/cons? I dont have experience with ir-keytable tool at all, I am used to lirc(?) - irrecord interface, it automatically detect and setup itself to specific IR remote which I use..

Thank you in advance!

Same here, also pass through on HDMI doesn't seem to be working properly, my AVR (Pioneer) not showing DTS or Dolby Digital notification, worked fine with 7.01. It Isn't a problem with the AVR as the BD Player player works as before.
Apart from that all looks good after manual upgrade.
UPDATE - Openelec config seems to be a problem with the Confluence skin, It's all present and correct in the Estuary skin.

I can confirm that the /storage/ partition is tiny (26mb) and unmounting /storage/ is not possible as connmand is keeping the device busy.

Tried an upgrade to 8.0 from 7.0.1 after taking a backup and no luck, wouldn't boot.

Reinstalled from scratch and discovered would not restore backup as no space. Think the stable 8.0.0 build for rpi 2 has a few issues, the main cause of some of the problems I've seen here is the storage partition is TINY, its about 26mb in my img based install currently. So the IMG build is not auto resizing the storage partition like it used to. With no storage free addons crash or can't be installed and various other issues appear to occur.

I've tried resizing the storage via ssh commands but connmand is holding onto the /storage partition as that is where it stores it's cache for the network connection so if you terminate that the connection goes (obviously..). The old Resize script is no longer in the build so you can't use that, so basically if you want to add anything to your install you have to drop back to 7.0.1. I have no linux build currently at home so I can't resize the storage ext4 partition that way and can't find a windows prog that will allow me to do this.

As there are several problems with the 8.0.0 will there be an update soon or is there a resize script someone can point me to to resolve this?

I wish i could still use the 7.01 version. That actually functioned properly.

[Stable] OpenELEC 7.0.1 released

The OpenELEC 7.0.1 release has been published. Users running OpenELEC 6.95.1 or later with auto-update enabled will be prompted on-screen to reboot and apply the update once it has been downloaded and enabled in some hours. Users running older OpenELEC releases or with auto-update disabled will need to manually update. If you would like to update from an older OpenELEC release please read update instructions/advice on the Wiki before updating. Manual update files can be obtained from the downloads page.

OpenELEC 7.0.1 is a maintenance release for OpenELEC-7.0.0. The main fixes are:

  • Fix problems with the Installer on x86 systems.
  • Fix an issue which prevents booting SolidRun's Cubox i4pro

I recently updated to 7.0.1 from 6.0.3 and I am not liking it so far. Two glaring issues:

1. When resuming from suspend, the audio no longer works (and I mean, no audio, no system sounds, no media audio). Since I have to use suspend to be able to power on with my remote, this means that every single time, I have to power it up, then reboot it to have sound.

2. For some reason, OE can no longer properly render my old XVID files. The video is garbled and mangled. They played perfectly fine with 6.0.3.

Format : MPEG-4 Visual
Format profile : Advanced Simple@L5

Is it possible to roll back to 6.0.3?

I just recently discovered Openelec, I have been using some of the Android M8S+ boxes and WD units, but now solidly hooked on Openelec.
I installed on a NUC MSI Cubi N-010BUS, and the install was flawless, been running now for a couple of weeks, and used daily by all family members, far far superior to any of the Android boxes and even the WD TV units I had. The video quality is even noticeably better and everything is smooth and FAST! Looking at building a few more for family. Just wanted to say thanks for all your work with Openelec.

P.S. I created a "how I did it pdf" if anyone is interested.
Not sure if this was the right place to post, but thanks again....

Hi,

I'm still rolling the latest 6x and have tried updating it to 7.0.1 without success. My machine is an old laptop running the x86 version of OE. I resized the partitions easily enough (using gParted) and I have tried dropping the update file into the Update folder via SMB and the ./Update folder via WinSCP and rebooted. It doesn't seem to "take" though.....There doesn't appear to be any issues displayed with the system reboots.

I know I could always do a fresh install but I was hoping to avoid that with the plugins and customisation I have running.....

EDIT: Ok, so forget everything I said. It did update, just took an extra reboot for some reason.

Nice :)

Update - I finally found the problem - and yes, it was on the server.

An update about a month ago didn't properly handle the firewall - but the OpenELEC kit running on the pi2 had no issues until it was rebooted during the 7.0.1 update, THEN the problem showed up. It appears that a firewall patch (or a patch to rpcbind) blocked mountd from accepting the mounts. Once I disabled the firewall, AND restarted the NFS services the problem went away.

The odd routes added are still there though, as well as the non-working rpcinfo -p host-ip.

The the files are now accessible.

I managed to get my display working by setting my BIOS to only display on the LCD screen of the laptop, ignoring any HDMI detection. Then after Openelec is booted, I set the video settings to display HDMI and it finally worked! The only real difference now is when I first boot the laptop, I don't see the usual BIOS info that I usually see, and my TV is blank until the Openelec logo displays. But that isn't a problem at all. Thanks everyone for your hard work on this!

I just ran the update on all 4 of my installs, three of them are just custom built HTPC boxes made with spare parts I had laying around, and all 3 installed perfectly using the "Upgrade/Repair" (option 2) from the USB stick. But I need help with my 4th upgrade.

My 4th machine is a laptop that has never given me an issue up until this point. I initially installed Openelec 4.x and have upgraded everytime a stable upgrade has been released. However, this time the upgrade successfully installed, but if I have the laptop connected to my TV (via HDMI) the TV is blank after the openelec logo. The system has loaded and I get sound from my TV if I press buttons, but no video. If I boot the laptop without it being connected to my TV, it starts right up and works fine. Is there a setting I can adjust to fix this issue?

Thanks!

Just did the manual update on Pi2...

How does one get NFS mounts to work? It was working in 7.0.0, but doesn't work with 7.0.1.

The only issue I had with 7.0.0 was that the systemd run unit didn't work in one instance (I had one for audio files and another for dvd iso files) In 7.0.0 "systemctl enable" gave a bogus error - for a quick test I manually created the symbolic link, rebooted... and it mounted without errors. The other run unit (exactly the same form, only replacing the source directory and target directory) worked fine with the systemctl enable and start (worked after reboots as well).

With 7.0.1 I get a
pallas:~ # mount 192.168.0.8:/mnt/mmedia/Audio /storage/shit
mount: RPC: Remote system error - No route to host
mount: mounting 192.168.0.8:/mnt/mmedia/Audio on /storage/shit failed: Bad file descriptor
when trying to manually mount. No changes on the server. Pings to the server work just fine. rpcinfo doesn't work either:
pallas:~ # rpcinfo -p 192.168.0.8
192.168.0.8: RPC: Unknown host
which doesn't make any sense either when pings work:
# ping 192.168.0.8

The routes shown for 8.8.4.4, 8.8.8.8 and 192.168.0.8 (the netmask doesn't exactly make sense) and deleting these entries made no difference. The same IP numbers are accessible even after deleting them.

The problem is access to the media files by NFS.

I've used Imagewriter to put the image onto an USB stick. Reboot NUC / boot from Stick.

And then I've done a complete reinstall. You may need to power down the NUC after installation in order to
make "power on" from the remote work again (the nuvoton chips need a re-init).

The biggest problem was to find out which FKey ist for "boot Menue". F10 on the NUCs.

And there ist not much to re-configure:
- IP
- localization
- user/pass for webinterface
- remount the smb shares.

I'm using a (cheap) one-for-all remote, where everything works out of the box, so no need to tune the remote.xml file.

So it wasn't really an upgrade. Was more of the reinstall B) Thansk for clarifying :)

Hello,

I've testet the upgrade from 6.0.3 -> 7.0.1 on an Intel NUC (D34010WYK).

a) Upgrade via "UpgradeDir"
- copy tar file to update dir / reboot
expected result : NO UPDATE (the partition scheme has changed; the installer shall not change the partition sheme without explicit approval; approval ist not possible while doing "automated update")
seen result: Installer does nothing / OE reboots into old system
--> perfect

b) Upgrade with USB stick

reboot; find key for BOOT Menue -> approve usage of complete disk -> installation took several seconds
-> reboots into 7.0.1
-> update addons
-> enable Tvheaded
-> Done: works perfect
--> perfect

Complete update took around 4-5 minutes/ remote works / tvheadend works / etc.....

Great - perfect work !

THANX,
Tom

To be fair any upgrade from openelec 6 will require partition resizing. If you try to install the fork it will hit the same issue.

To answer some of your questions:

1) Post #14 gives the partition size requirements
You can see your current partition sizes in the GUI, from memory System>System Info>Storage

2) How to resize your current partition is covered in post #17 openelec.tv/forum/120-news-announcements/82920-stable-openelec-7-0-released?start=15#167313
I followed these instructions and it worked fine.
The only thing I had to do post install was update tvheadend versions and restart

Hi all!

Great to hear OE is still alive & kicking. However, seems that this 6.0.x > 7.0.0 update is far from trivial including possible challenges with the partition sizes issues. So as I am quite a noob, prior to even considering this update, I would like to:

1) Know HOW to check do I need to manually resize the partition?
2) Have updated WIKI pages with instructions HOW to manually change the partition size to meet the installation requirements
3) Optionally... Have the installer to take care of the resize (might be too big cake to handle, though ;-)

Prior to those, I'll just stay on 6.0.x.

I am sure there are quite a few 'noobies' who would like to have those too.

I have the same issue on a NUC6i5SYH - skylake based (freshly updated BIOS at default settings)

Using W32diskimager I created an installer stick.
That boots on the NUC. There I tried to install OpenElec V7 on several devices: USB stick, SDMC and HDD.

All show the same fault: mount_storage: mount_common: could not mount label=storage

I booted Ubuntu and used gparted to look a the the HDD. It shows two partitions, The boot partition is healthy, the 2nd partition appears to have a problem.
Gparted writes: unable to detect file system.

Here is a link to two fotos showing the boot fault and the gparted view of the HDD.

Solved: Rebooting OpenElec and re-updating the NextPVR addon solved this.

Upgraded my Raspberry Pi2 to OpenElec 7.0 and now the TV/PVR feature won't work. The logs say:

ERROR: PVR - Add-on 'NextPVR PVR Client' is using an incompatible API version. XBMC minimum API version = '4.1.0', add-on API version '1.9.6'

Uninstalling and reinstalling the NextPVR addon doesn't help. Googling found the same error message here but it seems the error is in the packages? .

I thought i would just share the harrowing experience of trying to upgrade to OpenElec 7.0
I am running an OpenElec Wetek Box -running 6.95 - this was working fantastically, then I received a popup which told me there was an upgrade to 7.0 waiting. My upgrade settings were set to Auto so I was expecting a formal notification to upgrade. Nothing appeared, so I decided to opt for the manual upgrade.After several tries of downloading and installation failing, I gave up. Closed down and went to bed.
Next morning when I booted up - my system was "BRICKED" in every sense of the word.
After long and arduous attempts at recovery, I resorted to the "Paper Clip" boot from root method. Now I am pleased to say we are up and running again, but with 6.95 - for now I will give 7.0 a miss. A stable release - I don't think so.

Hi!
I have tried the following scenarios for upgrade:
1: My old 6.0.3 to 7.0.0 - Failed, kernel panic
2: Clean 6.03 to 7.0.0 - failed, kernel panic
3: Clean 7.0.0 - failed, partition resizing works but then it shows a lot of ascii characters and when that has completed it reboots, and then kernel panic,
4: Clean 7 develop image to 7.0.0 stable , kernel panic
So now I am running on a 7 development image, the one mentioned above.
On my Raspberry Pi2 the upgrade from 6.0.3 to 7.0.0 worked without issues.
But, I am sure the partition resizing thingy works, it is the reboot afterwards that crashes.

Same problem here since updating to Openelec 7.0! Is there any update on this?

Once i turn off the unit i cant switch it back on with the remote. Quite frustrating.

EDIT: Just realized the power button on the wektek remote does nothing at all, however my Harmony remote (which I am using via a USB IR adapter) does shut the wetek core off but I am unable to power it back up with either remote after the upgrade to 7.0.

Happy to help troubleshoot if you can let me know what you need e.g. log files etc.

Hey ThreeSixe,

try to use the old remote.conf from the previous build and see if it work for u then? Copy the old one to /storage/.config/ and reboot the box. Check then if the buttons are working fine then.

Fossy

So, why exactly did the power button on my remote stop working after this update? It was working just fine before.

Can't even turn the device (Wetek Core) on now, unless I unplug the cables and start it that way. While it's on,
all the other buttons work and I can browse regularly.

What gives?

The failing "Size check" means your first (SYSTEM) partition is to small, thats why we recommend new installs. Since a year we using 512MB partitions, 256MB is not more enough for Generic builds.

This would have been a nice addition to the wiki. I am no noob and can do it on my on but again, the info would have been great so I don't waste my time finding the answer. If you change things, at the pace you change versions (6.0.3 here) it's been over a year hence people that got the last update like I did cannot know about this. Even then, why not do a proper installer that would correct the partition size or a small command so people with less experience could do this easily.

I feel bad for all the people that installed this setup for their moms or others, not the kind of thing you can just do remotely!

Weird I upgraded my two RPi* systems, but airplayed only worked once I disabled airplay in settings - on both system :) Dunno if its a bug for all that runs this version of openelec on RPi2/3 or if something happened when I upgraded, but as soon as I enable airplay my devices cannot find Kodi anymore, disable it and there it is and working perfectly again.

Hello,

while creating the filesystems the Installer uses the comand:

"mke2fs -t ext4"

but the used busyboxversion 1.26.0 (24.12.2016)

does NOT support "-t" option.

So the creation of the partition failed and the installer stops. (87 % or 85%)

I actually have the same issue as this. Unfortunately, I cannot install a previous version on my Asrock ION330HT and upgrade that way (current OE version I'm running is ancient). Hope this can be adressed soon!

I had the kernel panic issue on an i4pro (kernel check said ok), tried resizing but the thing failed to boot entirely. Tried your image from scratch (dd onto the SD card) and it boots fine now, partition size listed as 537 mb. Finally, I restored the OpenELEC backup made immediately prior to trying the upgrade from 6.0.3 and it seems to have been successful. Thanks for the extra work.

Incidentally, a little nitpick on the message during the restore - "restoring.. this may take long time to complete, please wait .." (sic).

So if I put the 7.0 ZIP file under /storage/.update/

like I did for 5.0 -> 6.0 then this will cater for all necessary resizing of partitions ???? or will it not actually do that part?

Well, looks like I got served. So much deep facts and truth in that post I give up :) Have a nice day.

EDIT: Changed my mind, I'll answer you just in case people actually buy into this nonsense. That plus I have too much spare time.
Wrong. just wrong. Di you know what sraue did in the past with intel?

What's wrong? Please be more specific. I'm not aware of mr sraue writing any Intel code whatsoever. Please do point me to these magical commits. Nearly all Intel patches have come from fritsch and I'm not sure if the code is his to begin with either.
Did you even look into the commits (since OE 6) before posting BS again? i guess your BS is coming out of your mouth as well as your back.
sarue communicated some stuff with intel developers (hints were in the commits). And he did implement more stable drive version (don't know if modified or not, didn't look into the code, but the comments in the commits well showed he adapted it very well).

Sure, I've been following commits since around OE2/OE3. Do you mind detailing what I've said that is BS?

Again with these super Intel patches from sraue. Wanna link the specific ones you are talking about that has been written by him? Should be pretty easy.
And if you have such a BIG issue (stuttering) and that for 3-4 alpha releases = than you should better try to fix it...but, LE is more for cutting edge than bug free!

You've still failed to point to a proper error report with logs as I've asked several times. Lots of people are on Intel without any issue whatsoever.

There are as of this writing 5 Intel patches in LE, 3 of which are shared with OE.
You and your HW go and give a visit to my behind. that's what your BS is worth.
Lots of folks having issues and they are wrong because you said so...sure

So, where are the reports from all these people with issues?
And again, i would recommend you read carefully:
OE (self made latest build = no issue...stuttering or bug that i reported above)...LE both issues...how can that be = being ironic B)

Just this statement here is not enought to make any conclusions. How was the testing conducted, did you do clean installs or simply migrated between distro's keeping settings? And where are the logs ;)
Your no Dev, you dind't even read the commits and at the looks at it, you pretty much doing shit here....why the hell should i give that to you?

How do you define a dev? I have commits both in OE and LE and I have my own fork, does that count?

You don't need to give anything to me, but your statements lack meaning without anything to back them up.
If intereted read yourself into it...go through bug reports in LE page by page..you'll find it soon enough

There's been two people from the LE community that commented they couldn't find it already, so let's leave it at that.
And NO, they don't use "very equal" kernel or Kodi version. What ever "very equal" shoud mean.

No?

OpenELEC kernel version
LibreELEC kernel version

Like I said, it's open source. You can disagree all you like, you'll still be wrong.
BIG BS again...by the time this beta came out sraue dind't push the 4.9 kernel and the latest build is with an older kernel...
so no they were not even "equal" kernel versions

I don't understand, are you claiming there is a huge difference between Linux 4.8 and 4.9?
Just my 2 cents: you want a reliable KODI port = use OE...otherwise have fun with bugged version of a Kodi port with LE (same goes for LE 7.02 = stable)
Maybe that'll change, but for now that is the case...it's up to you...

They are both using the same version of Kodi (as of this writing both projects are at beta7), and they have mostly the same patches. Logically, as LE is a fork. Everything is the same up to the very build flags used.
Well, everyone can read, except you...maybe you read into the discussion between LE Devs and Sraue and why they splitted...

Sure I did. I even had the story re-told by people who were actually involved.
LE is more cutting edge, near KODI...sraue did stress out: he wanted a less bugged version and din't care for using older kernels, drivers, ol,der libraries or KODI...

Uhm, what now? The fork happened because sraue wanted a less bugged version? Are you listening to yourself?
and is is a set of libraries...scripts are only used for compiling them...you really repeat shit you read somwhere....

You literally just recommended reading this and that, only to attack me for repeating something I read. It sounds to me like you are talking about yourself, because it's not "shit I read somewhere", it's facts. OpenELEC by it's very nature is what you call a buildroot, a set of tools to build a minimal Linux distribution. It's not even original, it was based on GeeXboX. You want to argue with this, go right ahead and make yourself look even more silly.
Anyhow folks: seems my 2 cents are worth something...anyone who can read, please do

They're still not worth anything, as your statements have been proven wrong.

There, now I'll let everyone go back to the original discussion. Which is long dead anyway ;)

You realize that both are open source projects, right? Just go look yourself.

OE master: Linux 4.9-rc8 Kodi master (close to b6)
LE master: Linux 4.8.12 Kodi beta6

That is quite "equal". They even share the same patch set for Kodi/kernel. Logically, considering LE is a fork. Both projects cherry-pick and share stuff between eachother now.

BIG BS again...by the time this beta came out sraue dind't push the 4.9 kernel and the latest build is with an older kernel...

Your 2 cents is worth exactly that, considering that you are talking out of your behind. You fail to realize that OE/LE is simply a set of build scripts to put together a minimal distro for running Kodi. They use pretty much the same software. Saying that one ships a "bugged version of a Kodi port" is factually wrong.

Well, everyone can read, except you...maybe you read into the discussion between LE Devs and Sraue and why they splitted...

*ELEC is simply a Linux distribution. Intel is the best supported platform bar none on Linux, they have lots of skilled devs writing code for the upstream kernel. The latest and greatest like Apollo/Kaby Lake will need a more recent kernel, so older releases might need backported patches for those.

I struggle to find these le forum posts you are talking about. Just had an addmittedly quick hunt around on their forum, and can't find any that describe this problem on intel.

Perhaps point out the urls to some?

look (mostly) in toe developemetn and bug reports section...a lot of folks have this issue (some even with with OE 7 beta as well as LE 7) with LE alpha.
i gues you have to go though it all...some folk even posted bug reports...the issue wa snot resolved until today

I can't see that I was praising either, in fact LE/OE devs do very little for Intel support this is done by Intel themselves.
there are more than "some" people having the same issue!
And if you have such a BIG issue (stuttering) and that for 3-4 alpha releases = than you should better try to fix it...but, LE is more for cutting edge than bug free!

You're just repeating the same bs. I still have Intel hardware and playback is still smooth, I've been on Ivy Bridge and Haswell for 3 years.
And again, i would recommend you read carefully:
OE (self made latest build = no issue...stuttering or bug that i reported above)...LE both issues...how can that be = being ironic B)

I did read it and replied and you still failed to point to a real error report with logs.
And NO, they don't use "very equal" kernel or Kodi version. What ever "very equal" shoud mean.

You realize that both are open source projects, right? Just go look yourself.

OE master: Linux 4.9-rc8 Kodi master (close to b6)
LE master: Linux 4.8.12 Kodi beta6

That is quite "equal". They even share the same patch set for Kodi/kernel. Logically, considering LE is a fork. Both projects cherry-pick and share stuff between eachother now.
Just my 2 cents: you want a reliable KODI port = use OE...otherwise have fun with bugged version of a Kodi port with LE (same goes for LE 7.02 = stable)
Maybe that'll change, but for now that is the case...it's up to you...

Your 2 cents is worth exactly that, considering that you are talking out of your behind. You fail to realize that OE/LE is simply a set of build scripts to put together a minimal distro for running Kodi. They use pretty much the same software. Saying that one ships a "bugged version of a Kodi port" is factually wrong.

not true. There are several threads and posts (in LE forum) about intel platform (maybe not the newest braswell/haswell ones) having issues with stuttering playback. Since a few alphas now.
and no solution there. besides: do you even test those builds on most common plattforms?
at the looks at it, you don't do a thorough testing (at least on intel).

for example: on the last alphas: when having (10 oder lets say 40 files in a playslist, mkv) and zapping through a files (30 sec forward) and then jumping to next file....when you do that 7 oder 10 times (sometimes more) then it freezes...and yeah i checked my hardware...reproduceable...intel Ivy plattform (celeron 1007u, 4 GB Ram, 120 GB SSD)


don't have this problem with latest OE self made build

Completely false. If anything, it should be better due to more recent kernel, driver stack and Kodi version. I'm on Intel myself and it's working great.

Well, I don't know if it is smart or not, but I'm just going to sit this one out and wait for the new stable release of OpenElec with Kodi 16.1.

I am still using 6.0.3 (Kodi 15.8 IIRC) and still satisfied with how it is performing on my RPI2. :)

Was about to try to the new beta glad I waited.
as @vulcanjedi said, it happened with even embedded or downloaded sub from other service as sbuscene, and it didn't happen when I wass 6.0.2 until I updated to 6.0.3
so now what version are you using @vulcanjedi? Kodi 16 has some features that I dont want to loose, so I dont want to downgrade to 6.0 :(

Upgraded from 6.0.3 last night to 6.95.2 and my wireless networking slowed down to the point of unusable. I was experiencing no problems at all for the past year and a half since I had first installed Openelec. Network performance was great using a USB dongle wifi adaptor to the Netgear AC router. Streaming 1080P from my HDhomerun and Plex Server works without any problem. I noticed that the WLAN drivers were updated in this recent build and I have an idea that might be our problem here.

Just as a info for others, I "hard reset" everything from inside the Settings menu, well it's kinda annoying and you have to re-setup everything, including going through the wizard. But now everything works as expected, the addons are working again and the skin, too. Currently re-applying my old library so I don't have to setup that, too ^^ I wonder if this also fixed the black screen on first video starts (after restarting the RPI2 it worked normally)

Where can I find a release plan to see when the next beta or final version is released? That way I could figure out if I should wait or downgrade.

I sometimes notice this bug too, the movie seems to play correctly and you can hear the sound playing, but the TV stays black. Simply restarting the RPi2 and selecting that movie again solves this issue for me. Though, it should be fixed with upcoming patches ^^

btw I still have an issue with those addons, the screen stays black (is there some setting/config I can change to point it to the right path or resetting the addons? I can't get another language or anything else, that's a bit annoying.

Hey,

I just did a fresh install of OpenELEC-RPi2.arm-6.95.2 on my Raspi2. I had to upgrade to the fact that the other devices are running plain Kodi Jarvis and share the same mysql database.

Everything works fine.

However, I do not get any video output when watching a movie. Subtitles are displayed and sound is fine, too. But the screen is black.

The codecs are installed fine:
# vcgencmd codec_enabled MPG2
MPG2=enabled
# vcgencmd codec_enabled WVC1
WVC1=enabled

Any ideas? From a hardware perspective, the setup is unchanged, I just updated Openelec and re-entered the licence keys for the codecs.

There is only the "DDBridge" driver loaded. And not the DigitalDevices driver wich is provided here: github.com/DigitalDevices/dddvb/releases
Because of this, there is no tuner detected and live TV is not working.
I would be very happy, if the drivers could be added in the future.
