Any idea what causes the spinning icon and the message "Preparing" on the top right when first booted.?
Sometimes mine will keep doing that and if I try to play something it will then freeze.

It could well be, thanks for the pointer.

It has been happening for a little while and perhaps since the SMB changes. When I see this message....

[Image: 20170627_075249.jpg]

I *think* that I am ok as it will wait until my media server is awake and then scan for media changes. I have always used, and need to use, the Advanced Wake on Lan addon. It will ping, with magic packets, my media server and it in turn will then wake from sleep. Then the media is available to scan.

This shows that the server has been woken and the library scan can start....

[Image: 20170627_075302.jpg]

The above has always worked.

I got the screen shot today as that shows the "Preparing....0%" message. I am aware that when the issue I describe happens it will show "Preparing" with the spinning circle - the "....0%" is missing. Whilst that is showing I can access the menu and shut it down. If I do not do that it will freeze when trying to play anything.

I have now unticked the option to update the library at start up, perhaps that will help.

It is only since I have seen this as a pattern of behaviour, not consistent as yet, that I thought of raising the issue just to try and get an idea as to what could generate that message. I only have a few basic addons but still I wanted to eliminate those.
