Only this, working fine afterwards.


I know about this crash and I'm working on a fix. It's a really old one, I've seen it first months ago, but it's very difficult to reproduce.

fyi, I fixed this for Krypton 17.1 and 18

Cool. Thanks for reporting back. So I can go ahead and merge the fix soon (for 17.1 and 18).

Sending commands to TV via cec still doesn't work very well.
I'm trying to switch off my Samsung TV via "echo "standby 0" | cec-client -s -d 1 ".
In #0202 it works - but only sometimes. In #0204 never. The connection of the TV remote-controller to kodi always gets lost after the command. After a reboot the remote works as usual.
Maybe i didn't understand the cec-commands correctly. Is there a way to reconnect the TV remote to kodi again without rebooting?

Are you running these commands with kodi running? I think that is not supported - only a single cec client is supported.
Does this work better with a previous build?

Does #0204 work any better when adding "hdmi_debug=1" to config.txt?

Why such a paucity of information in the new info bar? No bitrate or frequency output. Like was before. Bitrate don't particularly need, but the frequency output I would be glad to know, because not always use autorefresh. My tv itself can't show it. Also with music. Flac is 44, 48 or 96?
Thanks.

This is a little off topic, but I just finished setting up Alexa to control Libreelec. It is very cool and supplements remote control with CEC.

**EDIT**

Regarding CEC, it is interesting that if I initiate play with "Alexa ask Kodi play music by RUSH", Kodi (PLAY) will not switch on the TV or Receiver. If I do the equivalent operation from the iPhone app, the TV and Receiver come on. To get the system ready to play music, using Alexa, I start with a "Alexa ask Kodi to REBOOT". Rebooting results in Kodi turning on the TV and Receiver.

This is especially odd since the iPhone App and Alexa connect the same way, through the HTTP port.

There seems to be no end to CEC oddities. I am beginning to wonder how much of this is the limitations in CEC standard.

I don't use dim, but I do notice that if I go to the Samsung TV settings menu and back to KODI, I loose the CEC connection. Changing sources back and forth restores it. Some of this may be beyond Kodi's control (no pun intended).

Works great on Pi2 and Rasp7" Display, Thank you
I'am using "PitsOff" Screen Saver instead of "Dim" to switch off/on the backlight, works fine.

There is one problem with the shut down Button in Kodi, the Display wont shut down and the backlight is still on.
Is there any solution out ther?

No change in behavior from build 0125 to build 0204 with "hdmi_debug=1". I suspect that we are bumping up against the limitations of CEC control. These issues are annoyances that do not significantly affect the usability of the program.

A short time after reloading build 0204 after testing build 0125 Kodi crashed and restarted. Since this only happened once, I am not sure if it means anything but here are the logs:

I was on 0224 and I believe ISO playback started much quicker than today. For example the same ISO used to start in under 10 seconds and now it takes over 30s for the same movie to start.

@niwa2 - you reported this long ago - are you still testing these builds? How long does it take to open the same ISO now?

I also still have CEC disconnecs when I switch source from kodi to Samsung TV (e.g using Youtube from Samsung Smart Hub) and then back to kodi.
Though I am not sure if this is really a problem / bug?

1. from what I remember some one here mentioned, that he always had to reselect kodi as CEC device after using the remote for other things than controlling kodi and thought this to be normal
2. and since #0202 it now *is* possible for me to reselect kodi as source *without* having to reboot, what has been most annoying for me in previous builds.

I now am no longer sure if CEC functionality was ever designed to keep kodi as source all the time without having to tell the TV from time to time which exact device to control with the remote or if it was just coincidence in my case and I didn't notice this need before simply because I didn't use other devices but kodi with the remote for a really long time. But I think I didn't have to do these reconnects each time...

Should CEC work instantly after switching between sources without having to reselect kodi each time after another device has been controlled by the TV remote?Huh
