I discovered a problem with remote access when testing the wireless network driver.

On builds (at least) #0717 and #0718 I can no longer SSH in when KODI is not selected (ie. The TV and stereo connected by CEC are OFF and KODI ON).

I will do further testing to find out the build when this worked. It could be something in CEC settings changed but I still can not see the left side of the CEC setup screen.

*Edit*
Yes, build #0716 does not have the problem.

I have discovered an strange issue: after 0714 build my DS3 via bluetooth is assigned as Controller 2, so if I launch Retroarch with Gamestarter Addon I can not control the menus or play games... Maybe it is something related with retroplayer? anyone with the same problem? Any workaround?

Yes I had the same problem. I posted it a few days ago with a debug log but I am not sure whether this is worked on or further input is necessary!

The transmission of the Streams (smb) has become better, no more crashes. Also the reloading of the buffer I have no more.
With the Tv streams( IPTV Simple Client ) I have the first minute a Short stuttering, then it remains stable.

is good

I seem to be having an issue with bash scripts in LE 9.

This script (https://www.dropbox.com/s/hsu9ver8e87fgj...s.zip?dl=0) from my sd4tvh addon works in LE 8 - but in LE 9 it's not getting the username/password variables and passing them to the python execution line.

Did I miss something that changed in LE 9 with the way bash scripts work - or is it something to do with the new linux kernel?


Current Kodi addon projects: zap2xml, sd4tvh and tvh2kodi (tvh config from inside Kodi)

First of all, we can't control what happens (or is broken) outside of Kodi. Second of all, the code to manage controllers and their ports doesn't exist. So you won't find a solution in Kodi. Hence, I've started creating a Player Manager so that troubleshooting and fixing this will be possible. Expect this feature within a week or two.

And third of all, no debug log, no problem.

Nothing to do with bash (and everything is ash in LibreELEC, anyway).

Your script is extracting the USERID and PASSWORD values from your addon settings XML file.

With the Settings Library changes in Kodi 18 the format of your addon settings xml file has changed so you'll need to update your script to work with the new settings format.

If you want to extract values from XML files in LibreELEC, you should use xmlstarlet, eg.
Code:
xmlstarlet sel -t -v "[email protected]=autoscroll" /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/skin.estuary/settings.xml
would return the value of the "autoscroll" setting.

Thank you Milhouse - I missed the change in settings.xml - looks like I have some work to do to make my addons compatible with Leia.

You mean the same PR12507 that merged 3 days ago and has been included since #0718?
