Just tested on my RP3. USB ports work fine. Perhaps the problem is a weak power supply. Does KODI display the lightning bolt?

no it doesn't display the lightning bolt, anyway it's the original rpi power supply.
I've tested it with 2 different Pi3 and none of the usb ports are working. although it can be the problem of the 2 pi3 boards...

Make a new installation from scratch LE8.0.2, and then update with Milhouse nightbuild...

@Malocher
Setting System/Video/Resolution from Desktop to 1024x768 seems to work

@Milhouse
Random crashes are gone until now with #0717, for me too. Just some lags / slow responding from time to time
Used bult-in RPi3 WiFi. Live-TV works also for over 10mins.

Unfortunately this is an RTL8821 chipset, which the gordboy driver doesn't support. I really hoped we could switch, but I'm starting to have doubts.

No problems with Amazon here (testing American Gods S01E01 tv show).

Your log doesn't show anything relating to Amazon, but does include a lot of PVR errors. Your crashlog is the only way to know why Kodi is crashing.

I dont know if my opinion counts in this, but having the more compatible version with other chipsets wouldnt bother me at all as a 8812au user.

The forced N on 5ghz still gets me ~100mpbs, and thats way fast enough for any content I have (or the pi can even handle?). I was using the forced N mode for several months, and was stable as ever could be.

Of course, Im sure some 8812au user might come along and say they need an AC connection for their pi.. *shrug*

No win situation I guess. Undecided

OK, back to the paspro repo and broken AC (with 8821 support) it is. I'll revert it tonight. If anything changes in future on the gordboy repo then maybe we'll have another go.
