There seem to be all sorts of issues with "Audio offset".
When a custom offset is applied to one of the TV channels and when you switch from that channel directly to a file playback - that custom offset will be applied to a file that you are currently playing (this will cause an out-of-sync audio).

How to reproduce:
1. Set the Audio offset to -0.025s (for example) for any TV channel and play that channel.
2. When the channel is still playing open the file browser and play any video file.
3. Do not stop the video, open the channel list and switch to the same TV channel again.
4. Open the file browser and play the same video file from step 2.
5. Go to "Audio and subtitle settings" and you will notice that "Audio offset" is now -0.025s.

Hi,

Has anyone been experiencing any issues watching live tv, things like pausing and stuttering.
Think I've managed to pin it down to starting with build 0613 onwards, and still a problem with latest build.
Only happens when watching live tv, watching recordings are fine.

I'm using mediaportal with no advanced settings.

Regards Bucky

Edit definitely starts with 0613

after updating from #0620 to #0629 the movies in rar-packs can't be played.
It only shows the .rar-file and when it opens only the sound starts.

That's because the rar package has been removed since it caused boot loops (see release description)

Hi Milhouse.. for me most working fine for what i need..

but there seems to be a problem with samba sharing.. shares pre configured are working but when i go to file manager and want to add a location and go to
windows samba shares .. nothing will show up..

Netflix working fine
preconfigured samba shares ( for my music etc etc ) working fine.
Pvr-VU+ plugin for life tv working fine too..

Edit :
Found now samba is using a different user file witch is located in ./kodi/.smb and now need to be named user.config instead smb.conf ..
with these setting done i can browse in my network again.. but my multiuser-target.wants ( preloading samba shares at boot ) is not working..
neither can i connect to the box with samba.. i just see the box in network.... loll

regards....

I have the same problem. https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=314964
But it is not possible to fix in Kodi. Some Samba problem.

You can go back to #328 if you want to add new shares. That was the latest version that was working for me.

The /storage/.kodi/.smb/smb.conf file is used by Kodi libsmbclient. You shouldn't need to change that - it will be rewritten every time Kodi starts. If you need to change max protocol then use the GUI setting. Your own Samba client configuration settings can be added in /storage/.kodi/.smb/user.config and will be read in after /storage/.kodi/.smb/smb.conf - what settings did you add?

Hard to say without knowing what you've changed. Automatic mounting of Samba shares (ie. those drives available at boot) should be working using the stock configuration - are you using a custom /storage/.config/samba.conf? The Samba4 configuration has changed a lot so any custom configuration should be rebased on the latest /storage/.config/samba.conf.sample.

Morning Milhouse,

I've linked a couple of logs for the above problem, basically i've used the latest 0107 build and once booted I start watching live tv and change channels a few times.
Each time i change channel the picture/sound pauses and stutter, kinda like its buffering, also sometimes when changing channel it'll just stay on a black screen for maybe 5-10 seconds before the channel starts, this all started 0613, anything before 0613 works fine for me, quick channel changes and no pausing/stuttering..

The logs are from a clean install, no advanced settings, or addons.

https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwAs5I...3NZWlVyNVU

Currently back on 0612...

Kind Regards

Bucky

Edit: also checked 0612b that you built for the scrolling problem, and thats also fine, so problem was introduced after that...

It's caused by Kodi deadlocking while accessing smb:// (which in your case is being caused by a library scan) - some sort of race condition, perhaps.

Unfortunately I don't have a solution (other than not using smb:// at all).
