tMM Website Down. Has it been long?

Has anybody noticed that http://www.tinymediamanager.org/ is down? Has it been long?

This may very well be something that just happened. tMM gave me a message saying "please reinstall tinyMediaManager: the update check failed VERY badly." (This notification could also simply be a result of their update server likely being part of the same domain.)

I also tried via LTE to rule out my own home internet connection.

Kodi 17 Live TV Won’t Play

I am running KODI 17 on raspberry Pi 2 OMC with a HD Homerun Connect on my network. When I go to my Live TV in KODI it brings up all my channels but when I click on a channel nothing happens. The guide is all there but again I get nothing. Any ideas? I've tried a reboot and disabling the HD HOMERUN PVR client. Nothing works.Huh

and I donlt get any HD sound at all.

if I select HDMI #0 instead, I get all other HD options:

but I donlt get any sound at all, including the navigation and standard DD/DTS.

What am I missing? I can provided the logs, if I know what logs I need to provide (rathere giving bunch of logs at random). Can anyone shade some light on it?

Kodi + MySQL Crashes on OSX

Hi. I recently moved to a centralized library using MySQL. We run Kodi on 2 macs and 1 windows 10 pc. Everything was working fine and then the macs quit starting kodi. Both freeze upon open on the kodi splash screen and have to be Force Quit. The windows pc with Kodi works fine.

If I rename the Kodi folder in application support, Kodi creates a new folder and starts fine. If I paste my old advanced settings folder in the new folder, Kodi hangs on startup again.

Not sure what's happening.

Here's a link to the logfile:

PC server, best Renderer for TV

New to Kodi, integrating possibilities. My goal is to have a PC server with Kodi server installed (I have that installed and working) and stream movies to my TV in Family room. Already in place and connected to TV is an original Sony Internet TV box (NSZ-GT1), but I think the Android version of the box is too old (3.2 - not up-gradable), and Kodi will not install. I've tried to play movies on Kodi server and select Play Using../Sony Internet TV, but it results in no response or general error, so I assume Kodi needs to be installed at both ends...?

I also have a ChromeCast connected to the TV, but Google search results suggest it could only be used by casting from a phone, which is not my intent.

Oh, my TV is a Vizio, and does not run Android.

So, question is, what would be a good way to get the streaming to my TV. The Amazon Fire or Fire Stick has been suggested, but I want to make sure this is an efficient way to do things - streaming from PC with Kodi to Amazon Fire (or stick) to TV? I realize I could just install Kodi server on the Amazon Fire and go directly to the TV, but I like the idea of using my PC server so I could also stream video, photos and music from local drive. I am also not sure I could control the kodi server through the Amazon Fire remote? I know I could use the Yatse remote on my phone and control the Kodi server.

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

The OC

Hi all,

I'm new to this so it may be in the wrong place or answered many times but I convinced my Gf to get kodi and she is slightly obsessed with The OC, cant find it on any addin. Can anyone tell me an add on which might have it.
Cheers

Help please. Fault message -can’t get rid of it.

Hi

Wondered if somebody could help me?
I pressed yes to a latest update on an add on and ever since then my home page has changed and I can't access anything.
This message keeps coming up and no matter if I press yes or no it makes no difference.

I'm useless at technology! I can't post the photo but it says 'RELOADNG SKIN WILL FORCE KODI TO SAVE SETTINGS. YES OR NO'

Thank you so much in advance [/quote]

Can’t view MPC-HC menu when using MPC-HC as external player

I am having a strange problem with the MPC-HC right-click menu display when using MPC-HC to play MKVs through Kodi.

I rebuilt my HTPC recently and having installed MPC-HC and Kodi before, I haven’t come across this problem (all drivers and OS updates are up to date).

Problem: When playing an MKV in Kodi (via MPC-HC), and I right click, I get a blank screen. Audio still plays, but no picture. I can exit the movie via Alt-x (the MPC-HC command to exit) and it returns me to Kodi, but there is no right click menu via my mouse.

When running the same MKV in MPC-HC standalone, I do have a right-click menu.

This occurs for all my MKV movies.


Build:
• OS is Win 10.
• Video card: AMD Radeon HD 5570
• In MPC-HC, Options, OSD is shown as checked (by default)
• MPC-HC is the latest build, with default values apart from:
o Direct Show video is set for madVR
o Audio render is system default
o Internal filters – video decoder – hardware decoder to use = DXVA2 (copy-back)
o Internal filters – audio decoder – all bistreaming options selected
o Playercorefactory xml doc is located in the folder: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Kodi\userdata
• Kodi 4 Launcher (v1.1) has “Focus External Player” checked on the ‘external players’ tab.


Any ideas?


Playercorefactory xml doc …
<playercorefactory>

Slow loading moviecollection

Hi,

first: I know there are a lot of "slow loading" and "how to speed up mysql-db loading" threads but none of them really fits or give me a solution.

So my problem is:
My kodi stucks and load movie informations like the poster or fan art really slow but only if I use the "show moviecollection" option and select a collection (the collection size doesn't matter). If I disable this feature I got all Information instantly! I can use the posterwall of my videos and don't see any poster loading. But I have a lot of collections so I want to use this feature.

Is there any way to speed this up?

thanks

Kodi wakes hdds up

Hi,
since a few days I'm testing with Kodi Krypton and got one issue:

I've got a few video shares, they all assigned to different samba shares on my linux server. These samba shares are assigned to single hdds, which set to standby via hdparm.
So, the problem is, when I get to the video source window in Krypton all hdds will spin on, just by get to this window!

In Jarvis the hdds won't wake up. Can somebody help me, I got bored with waking all my hdds up! If I delete the shares in Krypton, the hdds persist in standby, but thats no solution.
Maybe, there is a hidden flag to turn this off.

Thanks,
WebEye

Two Feature Suggestions

1) When playing a video and you pause, can we add a display of the weather to the left of the time/duration/finish info?

2) This same play bar mentioned in #1 shown when paused... Can we add an option to hide this temporarily? I really like this bar style, but sometimes when I need to pause and read the subtitles, it makes the subtitle unreadable. So, I like to have it most of the time, but would like to be able to hide it if needed on-demand.

Messy folder structure and movies library

Hi guys,
happy to join community after over a year of lurking Wink

I have problem with proper movies library implementation. I use kodi for over a year now, but it's a first time I used this functionality.

On my external drive connected to rsb3 I have this messy "Kids content" folder. Due to some reasons I can't change it's structure much. It looks like this:

.Kids content
+ ~50 movies
- Collection_1 folder
-+ 2 movies
-- Tv series of collection
--+ ~20 episodes of related Tv series
- Collection_2 folder
... etc

I added whole Kids content as movie library and all movies were added perfectly. Unfortunately, all related Tv series episodes weren't added neither to movies library nor tv one. Also, every timy my library is refreshed, all that episodes are getting crawled (I can see that in top right corner with status updates) but nothing happens.

How should I treat those folders? Should I add them different way?
Why Tv series episodes weren't added, but keep getting crawled?
How should we treat folders containing both movies and series?

Thanks in advance for help!

Ps. Sorry for all typos, using phone

Dialog Confirm Different Button Layouts

I'm currently coding DialogConfirm.xml and am trying to have different button sizes depending on whether it's an OK, Yes/No or Progress dialog. This is my code...

                    <bottom>-15</bottom>
                    <width>1040</width>
                    <height>120</height>
                    <align>left</align>
                    <orientation>horizontal</orientation>
                    <itemgap>-30</itemgap>
                    
                    <!--ok-->
                    <include content="Dialog.Popup.Button">
                        <param name="id" value="11" />
                        <param name="label" value="" />

                    </include>
                    
                </control>
                
            </control>

It works fine for OK and Yes/No. when it's an OK dialog it's one full width button, when it's a Yes/No it's two half width buttons. It isn't working properly for Progress though. The full width button is there but it never has focus. Any ideas why?

Also if someone could shed some light on what I'm meant to do with the id="12" button that would be great, I've taken it out for now but if it's something that's gonna come into prominence in the near future then it would be good to know!

Thanks

Help! Picture has grey border dont know how to get rid of it- HELP!

Hello,

I've been experiencing this issue on all videos recently not sure if its normal but could use some help! Anytime I play a video in any quality on any app, the video will play/stream but there is this extremely annoying grey border around the picture.

I've been using Kodi on my firestick for quite some time now and never experienced this issue. I've changed the picture size on my TV I've tried playing videos I've watched in the past but everything has this grey border AngryAngryAngry. Has this happened to anyone? Anyone know how to fix? Your help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

XBox One + Raspberry Pi – single remote?

For high WAF I'd like to have a single remote that runs my xbox one and kodi running on a pi3. The Xbox one media remote runs kodi very well but the problem is that the back button on the remote leaves the tv app and the left button on the wheel brings up the media flyout menu. Those two things make the media remote not suitable. I know there has to be a single remote option, maybe a Harmony.

Just wondering if anyone has setup a single remote setup with the xb1 and pi and wonder that that setup looks like.

Thanks
