Kodi box is locked

Hi all, got a wicked problem with my kodi box, left it in superb running shape and asked my neughbours kid to look after the house while I went to clean up cottage, showed him the box and told him how to use it, kid said he knows how and not to worry.
Today I come back and the box is locked/frozen, upon starting form original menu an icon came on with a "Master Use" icon and then asked for a lock code, asked the kid what he did and he said not to worry, just type my name and all will be fine, he supposedly knows this stuff, so I typed my name and the blue kodi menu comes up, but, I only have "System" and "Pictures"...... no Video, no Programs, no Weather, the kid said he installed Quasar for better protection, but now this genius knows no method of unlocking my machine.
I went into System and disabled and deleted anything that said Quasar from tepositories, but still no Video skin, or Program skin.
Gave it hard shutdowns by unplugging it and still frozen, ......... I can go in and out of System, but I can't get thet Program skin on to purge and restart.
Does anyone know of a quick fix for this, otherwise I might have to go out and buy another box...........it will be a crying shame for I took painstaking care of installing three wicked zip files and customised it with my tastes, and I might have to go through this all over again.........

NFS, Mergerfs & Kodi issue

In the past I have read about other people having this issue but have never experienced it myself until I setup a new server.
This happens with mhddfs or mergerfs and both are fuse based so I suspect this might have something to do with it.
I can add the shared directory over NFS but only the the first directory and all files show as zero bytes.
subdirectories are not able to be entered into.

username, GID & UID (1000) are the same on both server and client.

OpenElec does not seem to suffer from this setup but standard linux & android based kodi builds do.

I changed all permissions on the folders to drwxrwxrwx

I seem to remember a setting in the exports that needed to be set but it no longer works, noreaddirplus

If I mount the NFS share on the client with fstab or manually there is no problem.

Error installing Docker

I haven't used Kodi since it was still called XBMC and was only available for xbox, so bear with me.

I'm trying to get Docker installed so I can install containers for Sabnzbd and others.

I installed the repo here:

but when I go to install docker it gives me an error. The log files say this:

Any ideas?[/code]

Sudden halt in the reproduction of files from the NAS.

I have a problem which is simple to describe: every time I reproduce a video file from a pc on my LAN, the reproduction stops at some random moment (always of order 15-20 minutes).
I have tried several sources (all Linux), like my laptop, my NAS, there is no change. All pcs host SAMBA shares, and Kodi accesses the content thru the Samba share.

Details are as follows:

Description-en: Open Source Home Theatre (executable binaries)
Kodi, formerly known as XBMC is an award winning free and
open source software media-player and entertainment hub for all your digital
media. Kodi is available for Linux, Mac OS X (Leopard, Tiger and Apple TV)
and Microsoft Windows, as well as the original Xbox game console. Created in
2003 by a group of like minded programmers, Kodi is a non-profit project run
and developed by volunteers located around the world. More than 50 software
developers have contributed to Kodi, and 100-plus translators have worked to
expand its reach, making it available in more than 30 languages.
While Kodi functions very well as a standard media player application for
your computer, it has been designed to be the perfect companion for your
HTPC. Supporting an almost endless range of remote controls, and combined
with its beautiful interface and powerful skinning engine, Kodi feels very
natural to use from the couch and is the ideal solution for your home
theater. Once installed, your computer will become a fully functional
multimedia jukebox.
This package contains the kodi binaries.

7. How to reproduce the problem: choose a video file from one of the SMB folders (on different pcs in
the same LAN), start watching. The file format (avi, mp4, mkv,...) is irreleveant, because
reproduction halts after 15-20 minutes every time, i.e., no file can ever be
watched without interruptions.

Specific WMC recording doesn’t show correctly in Kodi

I'm having a recurrent problem with recordings of the BBC show 'Would I Lie to you' showing in Kodi. As the screenshot below shows, when there are multiple recordings of this show, Kodi shows two entries in the Recordings list - both "..", and both taking me to the parent folder. I've previously experienced this, but temporarily fixed it by deleting all but the most recent recording presuming it was an issue with the meta-data for one of the recordings. With another recording made a short while ago, though, the issue has re-appeared.

I'm running the latest ServerWMC version (1236), the latest Kodi nightly on a Mac and an OSMC nightly from about a week ago - both of which are showing the same issue. Assuming it's a WMC Server issue, rather than a Kodi one, I link below the current WMC Server log. Please let me know what additional information I can provide.


Whole application unresponsive after anniversary update

The program constantly hangs, it takes a minute to recover, and then trying to interact makes it hang again.

There is a thread saying that the video is sluggish, this is the entire application, not just the video.

Tested on 16.1 and the nightly for 17: KodiSetup-20160929-2ec0be0-master

I reset all my settings

Here is the log file

Sorry if my post isn't coherent I have the flu, just wanted to watch movies while sick.. but thanks MS

using Kodi scrapers for personal project


I would like to ask about the stance of the kodi project on a possible scraper reuse in another project (also GPL). And possibly any best practice you would recommend.
I was toying with the idea of writing my own scraper, but then saw the giant library of kodi scrapers, read how to write a scraper, and figured implementing your "engine" (which BTW I find very ingenious) would be a lot easier than writing/maintaining my own scrapers. I currently have a proof of concept working (themoviedb scraper loads and gets info for a movie Smile ) .

Of course I have no idea if it will go anywhere, but if it does, I'd like to be on good terms with you guys Wink

No files after the letter L

Any "quick fix" reason you can think of that under Videos and then Files all of a sudden NOTHING appears in the screen directory on movies or file folders after the letter L? This JUST started, so I am betting my wife hit something silly. I don't see anything stored under filter.

All of the files show up on the computer directory.
All of the files show up under Movie and then Title

Anyone seen this before?

The only thing I think that could have caused this... is that I just went over a size limit... when I split the main folder into two.. they all reappeared

Android startup video

Hey, I hope I'm asking in the right place..

I bought a new android tv box called: km8 pro and it runs Android marshmallow...
In the startup thers a video with km8 logo and musics..
I've tryen to change the bootanimation.zip file but it stays,
Is there anyway to disable or replace it?

Thank you
