RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - smf007 - 2017-02-07

I have an issue with the TV guide that has appeared. The TV channels are not sorting correctly. This only started after I added new channels to the TVHeadend backend a couple days ago (so not an impact of changing LibreElec builds). This appears to be a LibreElec issue as I have Kodi Leia Master on my Android phone and it sorts correctly. I've tried doing "clear data" on both LibreElec and on my phone, but no change. PVR settings appear to be identical. Thoughts of where to look?

RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Milhouse - 2017-02-07

Weekly Linux 4.10-rc7 build #0206x: Generic

Same as #0206, but without media_build extensions (not compatible with this kernel).


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - Fromm - 2017-02-07

How do I download the game addons (the libreretro cores I assume).

I have entered the Konami code, and have the games entry on the main menu, however I can not find any of my roms, and a search for the addon, yields an empty result.

I can not connect to the Libreelec Retroplayer Add-ons repository. It gives me an "Could not connect to repository"

The 9.0 cores don't exist yet.

I have however tested the 8.1 cores with some success, so you could get around this temporarily:

cp -R /usr/share/kodi/addons/repository.retroplayer.libreelec.addons/ /storage/.kodi/addons/repository.retroplayer81.libreelec.addons/
cd /storage/.kodi/addons/repository.retroplayer81.libreelec.addons/

replace the contents of addon.xml with:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<addon id="repository.retroplayer81.libreelec.addons"
                name="LibreELEC Retroplayer 81 Add-ons"
                version="8.0.0"

                <disclaimer>This is a testing repository. please don't ask for support in openelec forum / irc channel</disclaimer>
                <platform>all</platform>

</addon>

and enable this new repo.

Now you should be able to launch a game and have the emulator download automagically.

Good luck

Thanks LJay. Transitioning from one major version to another (ie. 8.0 to 9.0) is always a little rough with bleeding edge builds while we wait for the rest of the infrastructure to catch up.

The 9.0 retroplayer add-ons have just been uploaded so you should no longer need to manually edit the addon.xml and the built-in retroplayer add-on should now be working (although you may need to reboot after removing the 8.1 add-on, and possibly force an update).

RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0) - kekomat - 2017-02-10

I can't provide a lot of details right now (logs, I know, will look into it ...) but all of a sudden 3 of my several fantec QB35US3 HDD enclosures cannot be connected to my Kodi machine anymore while they are working just fine while connected to my W7 desktop PC.

Is there any chance that one of the recent changes ist responsible for that kind of hickup??

Planning to install a way older release (kernel 4.8 just to make sure, #1214) but eager for ideas in the meantime. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Release #1214 didn't change a thing I'm afraid ...

Intel NUC no GUI sound, other sounds ok - moviefan65 - 2017-02-11

I try the current Testbuilds on two different systems - Rasp PI (Rasp-Build) and Intel NUC (x86_64 build).
Even with the original version for x86_64 I didn't get GUI - sounds (e.g. the click-sound while moving through the menues).
On the PI, everything works fine.
Is there a known problem with the sound on x86_64 - systems?
Normaly, I set sound to 5.1 over HDMI, but with these setting, some trailers or movies with stereo-sound only are 'quiet'.
The only solution here was to switch to stereo over HDMI and enable passthrough.
But that didn't fic the GUI - sound problem.
any ideas?

No.

Post a debug log (wiki). Or delete /storage/.kodi/userdata/guisettings.xml and restart Kodi with default settings.
