System hangs on Live TV stop

  • Having a strange issue where the system hangs when i stop Live TV playback. Doesn't happen all the time, maybe once in ten times. System just hangs with a blank screen, have left it over night and still just sits there with a black screen until I hard reboot. I don't get a crash log so system is not detecting a crash I guess. Using RPi4 with Next PVR addon.

    I have attached the log file I managed to get here: Logs

  • Ok, it is just that I never had this issue when I was running Libreelec on a RPi3 so thought it might be related to upgrading to the RPi4. Struggling to get a crash log of when it happens. Wife complains about the CPU usage meter overlay when I turn it on. Has just happened again now though and the last lines from the Kodi log are:

  • You can enable debuglog without that overlay at Kodi, pls have a look at the the Kodi wiki, currently don't have the switch at hand.

    Search for debuglog

  • Ok finally got it to happen with debug logging turned on, would appreciate if someone could take a look and let me know what they think, I have included all of the logs between pressing stop and then pressing exit before I had to restart the system, the full debug log is over 100MB:


    • kodi.log

      (36.09 kB, downloaded 51 times, last: )
  • Have posted on the Kodi forums and they think the problem is with LE rather than the addon or Kodi.

    Please see response on Kodi forums here: Kodi NextPVR

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

  • I responded the OP on github the only thing I made add is that Emby spam doesn't help debugging but I don't know if that is common for Emby.
