I become the Signin, ant the can give the PIN. thex is see the three dots and nothing else starts.
My current understanding is that almost all Addons (especially non core) are currently being heavily impacted by ongoing changes being introduced in Leia Nightly's since Jun 4th (#0604) making each addons use (especially between addons) unpredictable. Minimum impact is that sometimes settings cannot be edited/modified as intended and when settings are saved you will not be sure if kodi has taken any notice of the changes in the settings.
Bigger impact is add-on doesn't work as expected and in some cases causes Kodi to crash etc.

If you roll back to build #0603, then each Addon settings may/should behave correctly again but be aware you may/will need to check every Addon setting as many may/will have returned to defaults by the rollback etc.
My personal advise would be to stay well clear of Leia nightly test builds and stay on latest stable release of Krypton.

That explains a lot, thank.you,
Ive been having issues since with pvr stuff, and last night's build everything stopped working...

And this worked as desired on #0706?

Yep, actually I am back on #706 now and both options are working.

Yes, kodi case is a rebranded flirc case and you should have no problems with temperature.
If you are having problems make sure the thermal pad is making good contact
(it should be touching both processor on Pi board and aluminium square that protrudes from top of case).
Well I can't tell what's different, but I watched a whole movie in 720p today without temp issues! Maybe it's the raining outside

I checked, but there is not really much I can do to improve it...maybe some heat paste, but other than that it's basically just insert the screws and done

I have a fan control built in via GPIO. The temperature is controlled when it rises above 57°C, the fan is switched on and runs until the temperature drops to 43°C.
A 5V fan connected to 3V GPIO, runs very quietly

If interest write PM - can help build that

I found a way to heat it up again: Seinfeld

I have been trying to watch it with 720p 3000000 and couldn't even get until half of it until the heat icon popped up. And now for the interesting information: with the icon I get problems with audio synchronization... Sometimes even the image stopped and it resynced, so I think this is not only a display issue

Gotcha. I installed it manually. I'll try via GUI tomorrow and will report back.

Hello Milhouse, i use on all of my rpi your build and so far all is ok "for me". But i have one question. Is it Possible to kill the "kodi.bin" Task permanent! I asked because i use one of my boxes with tvheadend and so i need no Kodi Gui Smile and could free up some memory and cpu speed.
If not possible its no problem it runes 23,99/7 (update time).

create /storage/.config/autostart.sh with folllowing content

systemctl stop kodi


make file executable i.e. chmod +x filename

this will stop kodi at every reboot...

Guess chances are good that something in this one might have caused the problem Wink

Today I've installed #709 for providing debug logs on this issue.
(I am always using "MVC 3D ISO Sample #1" ( Samples (wiki) ), stored locally on SD card for quick testing).

@Milhouse

Installed Netflix plugin using master.zip from GitHub. I can now log on and see things like users, lists, etc.

When trying to play an item Kodi crashed. Logs files here: https://ufile.io/8v45c

One last question Smile Is Rpi 1B supported or only Rpi 3?

Cheers,
anthonws.

There's nothing to stop you installing Netflix (or Amazon) on a RPi1B but it doesn't have the horsepower to software decode video so you're unlikely to have any success. Netflix/Amazon should work on an RPi2 (but may require a little overclocking).

Thanks but can you use a pastebin site? The instruction on how to upload a crash log (one should be sufficient) are in the first post, note #4
