OpenELEC 5.0.7 released

29 Mar 2015

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 5.0.7.

OpenELEC-5.0 is the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.2.

The headline change is the update from XBMC 13 (Gotham) to Kodi 14.2 (Helix) and the big switch from XBMC to Kodi branding. Both project teams have conducted a major find/replace but if you spot residual mentions of XBMC anywhere please let us know. The name change affects more than the GUI; all references in code have been changed and in the OpenELEC filesystem /storage/.xbmc will be recreated as a symlink to /storage/.kodi to ensure hardcoded paths in addons or scripts continue to work. For information on Kodi 14 you can find on http://kodi.tv/kodi-14-0-helix-unwinds/.

Due to the potential for typo-bugs and breakage from Kodi renaming YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO MAKE A FULL BACKUP before performing a manual update and perform a “Reset System Settings to defaults (Soft Reset)” after the update if you update directly from OpenELEC-4.x or earlier.

Please note many addons and skins remain to be ported by their developers. This is out of our control and until this happens, they will either not work or be marked as broken by Kodi. If an addon or skin is essential to you, please confirm with its developer prior to upgrade if it is compatible with Kodi (Helix).

Hi there,

updated yesterday to 5.0.7, from the beginning everything seems fine. But today i've heard music in the morning, everything worked well, but now i have no sound?!
I tried everything, pull the power plug, radiostreams, mp3, movies, ... everything without sound.
Now i downgraded to 5.0.6 again and after i plugged the power everything works again.

I've running a INTEL NUC D34010WYK2 with pulse-eight usb cec adapter on an onkyo tx-nr636 and Samsung ue55es8090

Hi, I updated yesterday my RPi to 5.0.7 and I have an issue with HDMI CEC connection. If I activate from TV the CEC (I have an LG tv) after Kodi is starting at first push on TV remote control for navigate in Kodi menu I lost the video signal on tv. RPi seem to still working, I see activity on wireless adapter and the green LED also have activity. Now I deactivate the CEC control from tv and I use an wireless keyboard to control the Kodi. Before update all was working fine.
Anyone had this problem?
It's happened sometime to me too, but when I watch movie. I pause the movie and restart the tv and it's ok. The cec problem with disconnect after shutdown the tv still exist.

Anyone else having issues with jumbo frames on the raspberry pi build? Any time I config the network card, eth0, to use them thru the ifconfig command, I can't browse network drives.

The command I'm using is "ifconfig eth0 mtu 9000" and yes, I have enabled them on my router the same size and I am using gigabyte ethernet everywhere.

I also had a corrupted update on cubox. All previous updates worked without issue. UI framerate on previous builds was a solid 60 fps. In 5.0.7 framerate has dropped to ~ 45. After a re install from disk image 3 lockups in the first hour of use.

It corrupts SD cards because the hardware is questionable. SD cards are not intended for running OSs and USB chargers are not intended to be PSUs. Combine the two and mix in poor power regulation and so forth, you have a recipe for disaster. RPi can investigate it all they want but it's inherent to the hardware and is not going away.

This looks like the above mentioned corrupted sd card - please see that thread form more information. FYI, no fix is available at the moment.

I also confirm problems with 5.0.7 and xvdr PVR Backend. After downgrading back to 5.0.6 everything is fine again. For me kodi started but then it freezed after a few seconds and no keyboard input or remote-control (Yatse) was possible anymore.

I have the same failure after the update of my intel Atom system from 5.0.6 to 5.0.7 - kodi always restarts...

The VDR service and the xvdr PVR addon is enabled.

After downgrading to 5.0.6 the systems works again.

Thank you for your replies,
Is it possible your SD card got corrupted? It seems that the RPi2 sometimes corrupts SD cards. Transcend and Samsung cards are more frequently affected than Sandisks. Gordon from RPi is aware and is investigating / will investigate this issue.

No, i think the sd card is still working correctly (Sandisk Ultra)

xvdr seems to be the problem.
I reinstalled again and now using vnsi instead of xvdr Openelec boots just fine.

Thank you and regards

After updating from 5.0.6 to 5.0.7 my Raspberry Pi 2 got stuck on the KODI boot screen.
Now I reinstalled 5.0.7 and first it was booting fine.
Then I activated vdr_addon and xvdr, rebooted. After that I activated KODIs Live TV option but now it freezes again in the boot process.

I have a TT-Connect CT2-4400 TV-Stick

Here is my kodi.log, if that could help:

They are all linux. The 64 bit version has x86_64 in the name.

wehther you want the img or the tar file depends whet you want to do with it. If you want to update an existing install by putting the tar file in the /storage/.update directory, then get the tar file. If you want to write an image to a USB stick and install from scratch, then the img is probably the way to go, although the tar file should also work.

OpenELEC 5.0.6 released

14 Mar 2015

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 5.0.6.

OpenELEC-5.0 is the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.2.

The headline change is the update from XBMC 13 (Gotham) to Kodi 14.2 (Helix) and the big switch from XBMC to Kodi branding. Both project teams have conducted a major find/replace but if you spot residual mentions of XBMC anywhere please let us know. The name change affects more than the GUI; all references in code have been changed and in the OpenELEC filesystem /storage/.xbmc will be recreated as a symlink to /storage/.kodi to ensure hardcoded paths in addons or scripts continue to work. For information on Kodi 14 you can find on http://kodi.tv/kodi-14-0-helix-unwinds/.

Due to the potential for typo-bugs and breakage from Kodi renaming YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO MAKE A FULL BACKUP before performing a manual update and perform a “Reset System Settings to defaults (Soft Reset)” after the update if you update directly from OpenELEC-4.x or earlier.

Please note many addons and skins remain to be ported by their developers. This is out of our control and until this happens, they will either not work or be marked as broken by Kodi. If an addon or skin is essential to you, please confirm with its developer prior to upgrade if it is compatible with Kodi (Helix).

I'm using a Cubox i4 and my boot problem is back. I was running the DEV build from 22nd Feb and everything was fine. I upgraded to 5.0.6 and now when the Cubox boots up my tv just flashes every 10 seconds but stays black. If I disable CEC on my TV the box boots ok, then once it has booted I can re-enable CEC and everything is fine (till the next boot). Reverted back to Dev build from 22nd Feb and its all fine again.

TV is a Samsung UN55ES7150

Anyone else experience this? I see some references above to a CEC error but i'm not sure which error they are referring to.

The changelog says "linux: Enable all buttons on the TiVo Slide Pro remote", but the select button on my remote still doesn't do anything. Is this an issue of the kernel now having support for all the buttons, but the key map in Kodi itself not having been updated?

No, my issue is not the shutdown or reboot itself, these things work as designed, even with my skin, Xperience1080.
When I initiate a shutdown (or suspend) the Cubox enters a dead state. That is normal for a shutdown, and also ok for suspend, but to wake up the box again, I have to remove the power cable and insert it again. There is no other way to get the box out of this state.

I think this can be improved by enabling the wol feature in the network driver.

Wow, that's the first time I heared that a shutdown is skin-dependent. Can you tell me more about that? I always thought that the shutdown is a Kodi functionality, not a skin funtion. So what exactly happens when you shutdown the system? Can you bring it up again without pulling the power cable? I'm very interested in having a system which does not need a physical interaction to switch it on.

So is your issue within the default skin?

To answer your question - well yes & no it looks like it have to do with the renaming of things during the change from XBMC-> Kodi and "different" functions like XBMC.Powerdown() and just Powerdown() and so on... and which function is used is defined per skin in the DialogButtonMenu.xml

What I did so far is: All my devices (TV, Cubox, Receiver) have a network connection.
- I installed a linux service that pings my TV in regular intervals
- If TV is on, Kodi service is started. If TV is off, Kodi will be killed by the service

That works quite good, but is not what I want. I want a system which comes up again when I want to view a movie or whatever. I don't want a box which has network activities all the time just to see if someone has switched on another device.

I guess it's just a small step to hit that target, nearly everything is prepared...

Try all last released 5.0.x on raspberry PI2
thanks for 5.0.6 release but always same problem to enter manual IP4 address and save the settings.
I can change dhcp to manual and then enter correct ip, netmask, gateway, dns. If i save the configuration dhcp always appaears on the openelec program settings.
Is there a specific order to enter informations in different fields to definitely enter in manual ip configuration ?
thanks for help if a workaround is founded.

Just a question: I have a cubox i4 pro, which works very well for me. There are just 2 issues left for me. One is the CEC bug, which is already in the issue list and the other one is the shutdown issue. When I select to shutdown or suspend the box, it enters a dead state, a powercyle is the only way to bring the box up again, that's clear so far. I was wondering if the WOL feature could help here. In the cubox forum, they said that the hardware is prepared for WOL. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only thing that keeps the box from a proper wakeup is the network driver, which does not support WOL. Is there a chance in the near future that this feature will be implemented in the driver?

let me guess you do not use the default skin - I faced the shutdown / reboot issue when not using Confluence

Hi,

it works fine on my CuboxTv and the VDR VNSI server seems more stable but it completely break my raspberry Pi B system, it rebooted many time during the update process (update from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6) and then finally started on 5.0.6 but when I see the kodi 14.2 RC2 logo, kodi crash and restart..

I'll try to rebuild my rpi on an old version or a fresh install of 5.0.6

with 4.x never had this problem and for now I work araound this probs by keeping the pi running and no shutdown (reboot works by the way).
Same problem here.

It's easy enough to change between versions, you just need to use the manual update method.

But yes the fix will be in 5.0.6

I had a lockup with this build on my Baytrail N2820 NUC. I've turned C6 back off in the BIOS and it's not happened since so I don't think it's fully fixed, sadly.

Sorry for derailing from topic, but how do you turn off c6 state on n2820?

From memory, in the BIOS go to the "power" section then on the left hand side of the page chose "custom" from the drop down menu then an option to disable it will appear with a check box next to it.

Can you explain the lockup , was the system completely frozen? Any logs?

I'm not at the machine at the moment to check logs but it was just a complete system freeze, which was the same as I was getting before turning C6 off in the bios. It was after about 30-60mins of watching a 60fps 720p .mp4 (from giantbomb.com to downloaded to the a SSD inside the NUC). I used to get these lockups regularly, since OE 5.0 at least, and hadn't had once since turning C6 off. I then installed that test build and turned C6 back on and it locked up soon after. Again, sorry for no logs as I'm not near the machine right now.

I had a lockup with this build on my Baytrail N2820 NUC. I've turned C6 back off in the BIOS and it's not happened since so I don't think it's fully fixed, sadly.

@Wag for this we have the CI320 Thread because this Remote Control Issue is usually to this Box related :-(

Excellent! Should I install this build on my Zotac CI320 or should I wait for the final 5.0.6 release?

From the bugtracker I think they will just use the legacy turbo for now (as interim fix) and afterwards post other patches that you guys need to test in their bugtracker.

I will push the fix to 5.0.x stable now. Thanks again to you all for your contributions!

I would assume that 5.0.5 has been recompiled with this fix in it?

Maybe, the N2807 is low power anyway with a TDP of 4.3W or somthing so maybe it's not relevant on that model... I see in Kodi that the idle clock is something like 800MHz.

OpenELEC 5.0.4 released

25 Feb 2015

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 5.0.4.

OpenELEC-5.0 is the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.2.

The headline change is the update from XBMC 13 (Gotham) to Kodi 14.1 (Helix) and the big switch from XBMC to Kodi branding. Both project teams have conducted a major find/replace but if you spot residual mentions of XBMC anywhere please let us know. The name change affects more than the GUI; all references in code have been changed and in the OpenELEC filesystem /storage/.xbmc will be recreated as a symlink to /storage/.kodi to ensure hardcoded paths in addons or scripts continue to work. For information on Kodi 14 you can find on http://kodi.tv/kodi-14-0-helix-unwinds/.

Due to the potential for typo-bugs and breakage from Kodi renaming YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO MAKE A FULL BACKUP before performing a manual update and perform a “Reset System Settings to defaults (Soft Reset)” after the update if you update directly from OpenELEC-4.x or earlier.

Please note many addons and skins remain to be ported by their developers. This is out with our control an until this happens they will either not work or be marked as broken by Kodi. If an addon or skin is essential to you please confirm with its developer prior to upgrade if it is compatible with Kodi (Helix).

Looks like the guys at OSMC are having the same issue with the PVR client making Kodi reboot: discourse.osmc.tv/t/solved-kodi-in-reboot-loop-using-mysql-database/683/17

Seems like a corrupt database in the mySQL server makes the latest version for the RPi2 reboot (but not the original RPi)

Seems like this was reported to GITHUB and a new release to the MythTV PVR addon was suppose to be released to be included in the 5.0.4 release, but mine was the old version # 1.11.3, here is the discussion threat at Github: github.com/janbar/xbmc-pvr-addons/issues/34 , in that thread there is a link to download the latest PVR addon. Hope this helps someone like it did me.

I'm not sure, but I think this has been happening since the 5.0 release. Basically,OpenELEC on Raspberry Pi stop being as a DLNA video renderer. Was the feature removed or is something wrong? And I"m not sure how to provide logs for this since it's not something I do on the Pi, it's my other devices that don't see the Pi as it should.

thanks

I've got this comment from HiassofT on this error message:
Looks like commit 5928cb1 bumped the kernel version to 3.18.7, but packages/linux/patches/3.18.6 hadn't been renamed to 3.18.7.
So all the kernel specific patches, including linux-003-no_dev_console.patch, might be missing in the 5.0.4 RPi2 build.

[UPDATE] OpenELEC 5.0.2 released

09 Feb 2015

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 5.0.2.

[UPDATE]: Due to a bug while updating OpenELEC to newer releases in OpenELEC-5.0.2 for RaspberryPi and RaspberryPi-2, we released OpenELEC-5.0.3 for both platforms. The other platforms are not affected, so we did not release a update for the other systems. You can download the fixed builds via our download page.

OpenELEC-5.0 is the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.2.

The headline change is the update from XBMC 13 (Gotham) to Kodi 14.1 (Helix) and the big switch from XBMC to Kodi branding.

thanks for the quick rpi2 support!
unfort i ran into a problem when trying to migrate from rpi to rpi2 (both 5.0.2)
the backup video library seems to be broken?
exporting to a single file or to separate files doesnt work
it created a folder with an xml file and all the subfolders are empty (actors,...)

this happened to me in the past already i think when going from openelec 4 to 5 back
then i thought it was a bug

is the whole functionality broken?
also the openelec wiki seems to have old info about openelec 4.0
the kodi wiki has different info according to this .nfo files are created but i cant find any

p.s. is there another way to get my resume points over?
can i just take the file .kodi/userdata/Database/MyVideos90.db and copy that to the new openelec?

Not sure where is the best place to report this, but I think there is an incorrect link on the Pi download page:

That link has the text:
See our wiki for "special installation instructions."
The problem is that link is for an install key, when I think the link was supposed to be to the Pi image setup page:
wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Installation
(this link appears at the top of the same page with the text:
Installing OpenELEC is easy, but if you're new to it then you might want to check out the "installation guide on the wiki".

Could really confuse folks.

Do you try to connect to a remote tvheadend server, or a local tvheadend instance?
If you try to connect to a local instance then it can't work, because tvheadend is not part of the image anymore. It is now in the repository for unofficial openelec addons.
AFAIK is this repository not ready for the Raspberry Pi 2. So your post would be misleading, you can't know whether tvheadend works or not, because it simply doesn't exist currently.

OpenELEC 5.0 released

28 Dec 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce OpenELEC 5.0.

OpenELEC-5.0 is the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.2.

The headline change is the update from XBMC 13 (Gotham) to Kodi 14 (Helix) and the big switch from XBMC to Kodi branding. Both project teams have conducted a major find/replace but if you spot residual mentions of XBMC anywhere please let us know. The name change affects more than the GUI; all references in code have been changed and in the OpenELEC filesystem /storage/.xbmc will be recreated as a symlink to /storage/.kodi to ensure hardcoded paths in addons or scripts continue to work. For information on Kodi 14 you can find on http://kodi.tv/kodi-14-0-helix-unwinds/ .

Due to the potential for typo-bugs and breakage from Kodi renaming YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO MAKE A FULL BACKUP before performing a manual update and perform a “Reset System Settings to defaults (Soft Reset)” after the update.

Please note many addons and skins remain to be ported by their developers. This is out with our control an until this happens they will either not work or be marked as broken by Kodi. If an addon or skin is essential to you please confirm with its developer prior to upgrade if it is compatible with Kodi (Helix).

It's moved to the unofficial repository. That means OpenELEC will no longer support the software but will provide it anyway. It's because tvheadend is changing rapidly and causes issues (for some configurations) on updates. This now at your own risk, so don't complain when it breaks. It makes more sense to do this, because the only place where you should post issues and ask for help is at the tvheadend forum and bug tracker.

I just compiled the latest commit on the 5.0 branch and noticed that Tvheadend seems to have been removed (under commit 83ca4c0). Is this permanent?

Sorry if this is not the right place to ask. I couldn't find it mentioed in another thread.

For anyone upgrading Tvheadend you need to manually go to

KODI >> System >> Addons >> Check for updates

This will let tvheadend upgrade

Then go to the tvheadend web interface config >> DVB inputs >> tv card >> parameters >> tick enabled

Now go to config >> DVB inputs >> tv card >> universal lnb only and click the "networks" pull down. Here you need to select the network you have. In my case this is "Astra".

Do all that and test a channel in the web interface by playing it. If it works it should work in Kodi.

You may also need to re-arrange your channel order.

I am using version 5.0 on an Intel NUC DCCP847DYE which is the Celeron version. Before installing the new version I upgraded the BIOS to the latest version. I also upgraded the memory from 2 x 1GB to 1 x 8GB and the mSATA drive as the old one was completely full (64GB) so I now am using a 256GB instead.

It is completely stable, I am impressed.

I have one minor niggle, when searching down the list of available videos on the old versions you could terminate the search simply by going to the HOME screen.
Now when I go back to VIDEO-ADDONS it goes back to where I was before going to the HOME screen, to get out of the search I have to right back to the beginning, by backing out via a series of PREVIOUS menu screens. I'm sure that this is a setting but I just can't find it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I finally settled on just sticking with 5.0 with my Q1900-ITX and setting the C-State to C1 instead, but it's true the temps do run ~10'C higher like this and if you've got adequate cooling it's not too much of a problem really, and everything has been running reliably stable so far.

Hello Brujo!

Over at github you wrote you are running stable with C7 enabled.

Did you build a 5.0 realease with an older Kernel? Or do you run another distro?

If so... could you be kind to share your build please.

Make a back up of your library before installing and then just restore. I think its under openelec settings select export library and select to do it in a single file.

Copy the back up to a different machine, install new openelec, reset and then restore your library back up.

that dosent work, i have tried to backup 4.2.1 with openelec and restore under 5.0. it just show like it restores but when finish you just have a fresh 5.0 and need start setting everything up again. it is already mention in previous posts here.

Any news what might cause this?

I have an ASRock Q1900-ITX board, and even with fresh installs all of the 5.0 RC's (and now 5.0.0 final) I've been unable to reboot normally through the GUI, only shutdown works. 4.2.1 works fine in either case. It's no big deal though tbh.

You have to put the contents of the "target" folder inside the tar into your update folder, and reboot.

Just placing the whole .tar in the Update folder will do now also, then reboot to update.

With RC3 I got problems on my Cuboxi 2ex playing SD files (MKVs from DVD Rips). There are many stutters playing these files. The fps rate varies between 24.98 and 25.02. With RC2 playing was always smooth without stutter having a constant fps rate of 25.00. I don't have this issue with HD files!?

Just again to confirm, r19824 and r19866 both play all test files fine. The issue is that after a period of time RC3 and r19866 will hang during playback with VAAPI enabled, whereas r19824 seems more stable.

For me, the OE version RC3 works really well ...course required method :
Reset System Settings to defaults (Soft Reset) !!!
my wifi card TL-WN722N works OK (tether option - OK)
however after shutdown the system OE -RC3 green LED still works ?
OE v 4.0.7 after shutdown system / OE ....LED on the WiFi off :)
Thank you for your work on the new version of OpenELEC!

Thx for the information. I have testet with OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-devel-20141225001643-r19824-gf61a706 and went back to 4.2.1 which works really good. The baytrail System is my main system and i can´t test all the time. My family named me crazy and I must wait for the next stable version.
Thanks for OE at all. It is a great piece software and I love it. Kodi works great on my other clients.

[RC] OpenELEC 5.0 RC 2 released

09 Dec 2014

The OpenELEC team is proud to announce its 2nd Release Candidate of OpenELEC 5.0.
Internally this will be known by the less-catchy name OpenELEC 4.97.2.

The OpenELEC 4.97 release series are test releases (release candidates) for OpenELEC-5.0.
OpenELEC-5.0 will be the next stable release, which is a feature release and the successor of OpenELEC-4.2.

The headline change is the big switch from XBMC to Kodi branding. Both project teams have conducted a major find/replace but if you spot residual mentions of XBMC anywhere please let us know. The name change affects more than the GUI; all references in code have been changed and in the OpenELEC filesystem /storage/.xbmc will be recreated as a symlink to /storage/.kodi to ensure hardcoded paths in addons or scripts continue to work. For information on Kodi 14 you can find on http://kodi.tv/kodi-14-0-helix-beta-1-springs-forward/ .

Due to the potential for typo-bugs and breakage from Kodi renaming YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO MAKE A FULL BACKUP before performing a manual update and perform a “Reset System Settings to defaults (Soft Reset)” after the update.

Thank's for pointing out that it was RC2 that had the suspend mode.. was about to go crazy.. I have a pc monitor at a very high place in my kitchen and without the suspend function it never goes into standby.. I updated to the final release and the function was missing, tried to find a workaround, found a line of code to put in the autostart.sh file but it didn't work.. I hope the function will be back in 5.1.. doesn't need to be a real suspend mode, but something that kills the video signal..

I had this. Using ATSC us cable center frequencies finally found some muxes.
[Add an atsc network then add that to the adapter/mux, after a couple of attempts it finally started a scan and found muxes].
I couldnt get the services with meaningful names but eventually found that adding the mux manually came up with a reasonable service name].
This area hasnt ever been tvheadends strongpoint, now its also rearranged.

I'm running OE on a Raspberry Pi B with HDMI through a receiver to my TV. Occasionally, my TV will just turn on by itself, presumably through the HDMI controls. Has anyone experienced this? My best guess would be that OE crashed, and the TV was turned on as a result as OE is rebooted. But as I have no way to reproduce this reliably, I am not sure as to how to provide a log that will include the problem that I am suspecting. My apologies, but I'm still new to providing logs on Kodi in general.

I am also suspicious of the Suspend power option. A few of the automatic turning on of the TV comes shortly after I put OE into Suspension mode for the night. Although, to be honest, I'm not quite sure as to what the function of Suspend is? Does it just stop outputting video and sound, or does it only keep server services like UPnP or AirPlay running?

In the meantime, will try to find a way to reproduce the problem to get a log to you you guys.

I think there is an issue with the"virtual" suspend code waking up spuriously in current RC. This feature won't be present in the final release,
If you never suspend, do you still have the HDMI turning on issue?

If so, then try disabling CEC options in settings/system/input/peripherals/cec.
I actually haven't seen the random TV startup again since my last post. so, I'm sad that The suspend option has now been removed in RC3. I've gotten quite used to its convenience when trying to reproduce this problem.

Hi guys, did you have chance to check and compare logs from kodibuntu and openelec rc2 ? To me are suspicious differences in these rows, but I will leave conclusions to the experts...

Guys, on this version, when I select the us-cable-standard-center-frequencies-qam256 predefined mux from the ATSC list under the Network tab, it finds no Muxes. Is anyone else having a similar problem? Using this same predefined mux list on the older version of OpenElec I was successful in finding about 157 muxes, and 600+ signals. Any advice on how to wake this thing up or fix the problem? It's kind of frustrating because as a Verizon Fios customer, I can't find a list of freqencies to enter the muxes manually. So, I can't watch any TV.

That is a known bug and a fix has been proposed already. It probably will be in next OpenELEC RC.

Partly answered my own Q.
system->addons->search "tvheadend", found tvheadend hts service, installed...
Ran userhdhome run, needed kernel driver, modprobe dvb_hdhomerun(its changed).
[Not sure ehere this came from..]
Now tvheadend sees the adapters/tuners. But doesnt seem to find any mux's.
Reports adapters as *atsc* so maybe a config thing [need dvb-c].

What is the next step I can contribute with?

Take care and thx for any help.

P.S. My intention was to install kodi from repo on ubuntu 14.10 live, because my environment is just home server with nfs and tftpd and htpc with OE usb drive and netboot... I ended up in dependency hell, then I downloaded koi from github (~700MB) and gave up compiling, because it might take significant time with uncertain result on ubuntu live. Then I decided to try kodibuntu, put it into tftpd and here we go.

If you are not watching live tv I'd turn off Prefer VAAPI render in settings. (System-->Settings-->Videos-->Acceleration: Prefer VAAPI Renderer:Not Selected)

I believe that bug has been fixed in development and not pushed to a release.

Thank you for a hint, but I tried every combination in Acceleration section and had no smooth results... And I am watching live tv sometimes, if watching dream box through PVR counts. I have to turn on deinterlacing for this and I have strange behaviour here also - dream box runs out of memory when accessed by OE. But this doesn't bother me like those skips and drops...
By the way - kodibuntu (live) plays without hiccups, but doesn't accept my remote, while OE does. I'm in cursed circle :-)

RPi 4.97.2 (5.0 rc2) downloaded/installed yesterday I enabled tvheadend and it appeared to work.
I couldnt browser to it at ip:9981 so I looked around and I cant see
any "tvheadend" files ?. From the git repo there should be a .start (etc):-
ExecStart=/bin/sh -c "exec sh /storage/.kodi/addons/service.multimedia.tvheadend/bin/tvheadend.start"

find / -iname '*tvheadend*' returns nothing obvious.

Am I missing something? Is it "known" , can I somehow reinstall?.

Also I see there are *hdhomerun*.ko drivers and the config , but no apparently obvious way
of loading/configuring. [I can make modprobe etc, work, in the past there was an addon
that did all that, has it changed?].
Thanks...

Hello Meikelmoeller!

After clean install I still don't get any log.

But the same issue...

Total System hang
Nothing happens no respond
No SSH
No Web interface (tvheadend or Kodi)

Only power off helps

By now OE 5 RC2 is running great but ONLY by using a NV GT730 (VDPAU) instead of intel onboard video. Deinterlacing is way better but I need the PCIe slot for HW Raid card. The better deinterlacing by the NV card isn't worth +20Watt of power draw.

I'm also downgrading to OE4.2.1 for now.

Regards
Nick

Good day Openelec Stuff,
in general the RC runs very well exept two issues which might be allready reported

1. System completely freeze (after ~10 minutes) when playing 1080p mkv from USB Drive when in Settings VAAPI is enabled (with VAAPI disabled no system freeze). I can reproduce it as often I like. I have to hard switch off. Therefore I enabled debug run the movie until the System stoped and I rebooted it and pastebin the kodi.old.log: sprunge.us/MiOC

If helpfull I can paste the mediainfo of the mkv too.

2. starting with RC2 (not with the betas) randomly/rarely 1 of my 3 USB Drives istnt mounted, mostly different combination. I switchted back to 4.2.1 for double check and did several reboot and always all 3 USb Drives are mounted. Also I recogniced with previous Versions there was alway after starting at "down right corner" a message that USB devices are mounted - this seems to be not the case anymore with RC2. I dont know if the dmesg will help, but I add it too. sprunge.us/TAJV

If you have further Questions I am glad to check it out and do more tests - System I use see signature

kind regards
Brujo
