XBMCHelper killed by Kodi when quitting
#1
My understanding is that XBMCHelper is supposed to stay running so that it can detect when you try to start Kodi with your remote.  This always worked in 18.x.  Now in 19, I see in the log that Kodi kills it on exit, and verified this in Activity Monitor.  And starting Kodi with remote no longer works.

Perhaps the command to kill XBMCHelper was put into the new Kodi by mistake?  Can anyone fix it?

The change is available in any master nightly build after ~10 days ago. http://mirrors.kodi.tv/nightlies/osx/x86_64/master/


But I guess you found out already ;O)
