[SOLVED] Kodi Addon 2018.9.6 on Kodi 18 - BETA 2

Post by dugiehowsa » Fri Sep 07, 2018 3:23 am

Greetings. I recently upgraded my Raspberry Pi to LibreELEC Version 9 BETA (LEIA)

I then upgraded the Kodi Addon to the latest version: 2018.9.6

I experienced the following issues after upgrading.

The HD icon remains on the screen after addon startup.
The Loading Guide status icon remains on the screen.
I am not able to utilize the On Screen Guide to change channels.

Please see the screen shots below:

I have downgraged everything back to LibreELEC version 8.2.5 (Kodi 17.6), and everything is back to working normally.

Hm. I thought he had the Kodi 18 fix in. Let me check on that.

Update. Looks like it might be a weird upgrade issue. If you go back to Kodi 18, completely uninstall the add-on and then reinstall it. That should fix it.

Good evening nateb. Thanks for your prompt response.

I updated the system to Kodi 18 Beta 1 again tonight. I uninstalled the HDHomeRun addon, rebooted the Raspberry Pi, and then installed the addon. I noticed that this time there were several dependencies that also needed to be installed.

Unfortunately though, the unwanted behavior continues. It does not appear that any of the guide data is loading, whether its the on screen guide info, or the searchable program guide.

I enabled debug logs and the KODI log can be found here: https://pastebin.com/mMkLCUc6

HDHomeRun PRIME 131995C9
Firmware Version 20180817

I performed some additional testing, and found the following tid-bit:

The KODI app works fine in the the Estuary skin, which is the default skin in Kodi 17 and later.

The KODI app does not work fine in the Confluence skin, which is the default skin in Kodi 16 and earlier.

Since my KODI setup was originally setup before KODI 17, I have been using the Confluence skin.

Would it be possible to have the KODI app support the Confluence skin at the least, or be skin independent at most?

I upgraded to Kodi 18 BETA 2 earlier today, and the unwanted behavior continues.

Here are the logs from when using the Confluence skin:

I'm forwarding your stuff on to the dev. We'll see what he says.

Be sure you are using the latest LibreELEC alpha release 005, there is no beta release at this point.

I upgraded to the latest alpha release, noticed a problem with the HDHomerun view add-on. Uninstalled it, rebooted and reinstalled it. I've had no problems since.

You can even use one of the latest LE nightly builds located here. https://test.libreelec.tv

I am running LibreELEC 8.90.005 {LibreELEC ALPHA / KODI BETA}

I have tried un-installing/rebooting/re-installing with no success.

Which skin are you using? Estuary? Does it work for you if you use the Confluence skin?

I'm using the estuary skin, works without any problems. I see the problems you are seeing with the confluence skin. I recommend changing skins and reporting the problem to the developer of that skin.

Can you give this a try? If it works for you, we'll push it to Kodi's addon repo.

Work's perfectly! The addon now works the same in Confluence and Estuary.

One thing that I noticed is that once I stop video playback and go to the Recorded/Discover/Tasks menu, in the upper left and upper right hand corners the following characters appear: ?0?

These characters move along with the menu tabs when you slide left or right through the menu.

See the screen shots below:

The ?0? characters appear when using both the Confluence and Estuary skins.

This is in no way a show stopper for me. I am happy with this latest version of the addon. But I figured I would report on it since I was performing testing anyways.

I gather we're able to repeat it. Should have a fix in a day or so.

I just upgrade to Leia Beta 3 on Windows and had the same behaviour as OP. Wondering if I should use the dropbox version as well or should I wait for the repo to be updated?
