I am trying a new plugin which works in conjunction to with tv headend to wake up xbmc from shutdown to record scheduled recordings. Posting here so more likely to be seen.

Early testing phases it does seems to work but just now and once before when turning xbmc back on after a scheduled recording had taken place and xbmc had shut itself down, when coming back on xbmc appeared to have crashed with errors in the log as below:

Eventually after a few minutes the error stoppped and xbmc came on okay.

I have path substitution for shared thumbnails which works well usually.

Is this some network issue, any way to resolve or force network to come up properly first. Incidentally I was able to connect to the xbmc machine while this error was still occuring!

Some plugin just don't(and can't) support path substitution. They can't create or move files directly onto shares.

Probably the plugin needs some code adjusting to get it to work. Best contact the creator.

Other possibility is that your network isn't ready yet when the plugin is loaded so it throws those errors
