    I just updated to v10.0.2 on my RPI4. I know there was a bug in v10.0.1 that was causing my TV to turn on via CEC and I was really hoping that v10.0.2 fixed that bug, but apparently its still there. I rolled back to v10.0.0.


    Please update CEC so it stops turning on my TV.


    Thanks

    I know there is a thread out there somewhere on texturecache.py, but I have a hell of a hard time finding it, and I've finally decided just to create a new thread and see if I can get some assistance.


    A couple of day's ago, I lost my SQL database and I had to build it. Fortunately, I had a good backup and I was able to import back all of my movies/TV show/music.


    I have four RPi4 media centers running LE Matrix (whatever version that is). The primary PI is wired, where as the other three are all on WIFI. When I got the database back up and did an import of the Movies/TV Shows, all of the posters, fan art etc... showed up. However, that was not the case with the three remote PI's. I use Eminence for the skin with the movies rotating across the screen. I could see the movie descriptions, but no images. I remembered texturecache.py script, downloaded it and I've been trying to update the cache for a couple day's using it.


    I've ran it multiple times, and it appears to reload the images, but still nothing appears. I think that I now understand that it is actually updating the local textures database and not the SQL database that I use on the back end. I've looked through the help to see if three was a setting to point it to the database, but I don't see anything, and I can no longer find the main thread that talks specifically about texturecache.py.


    If someone can confirm my suspicion about the script only updating the local db, and how to point it to the back end database, I'd appreciate it.


    Thank you.

    Has anyone looked at the log file that I posted? This is a big pain the you know what. Every time I want to stream something from sling, I have to reboot the Pi to get the connection re-established. This was working fine up until I rolled back to v10.0.0. I even re-installed v10.0.0 from scratch and I'm still having issues.


    Thanks

    I have four RPi4 which had been using v10.0.1, but because of a bug in CEC, I rolled all four back to v10.0.0. Ever since, I've been having a lot of issues with buffering/caching when trying to stream my TV service. I use Sling and I watch it via a plugin that I found on kodi.tv. Was working great until this recent roll back.

    Right, this could be a bug. Before I'll ping the dev's, please provide another log, because your first log is at log level 0.

    Please provide a full debug log.

    How to post a log (wiki)

    1. Enable debugging in Settings>System Settings>Logging
    2. Restart Kodi
    3. Replicate the problem.

    Full logs only. No modified logs.

    Do not post your logs directly into the forum,
    use Settings > LE Settings Addon > System > Paste system logs
    and post the link.

    As requested. The log is at pastebin.com

    • go to Settings -> System -> Input -> Peripherals -> CEC Adapter
    • disable "Put devices in standby mode when activating screensaver"
    • disable "Wake devices when deactivating the screensaver"
    • set "When the TV is switched off" to "Ignore"
    • set "Action when switching to another source" to "None"


    As I've stated several times in this post, these are the settings that I change as soon as I build a new PI.


    Just to verify that there wasn't anything else on the PI that can be causing this, or perhaps the update mucked something up, I rebuilt this PI from scratch with a fresh download of LibreELEC-RPi4.arm-10.0.1. So far all I've done is make the above changes in CEC and set the region/time information. The skin is default. Nothing else installed etc.....


    After rebuilding, I tested, and I am seeing the exact same thing. The only way to stop this, is to turn off CEC, which as I stated earlier, defeats the purpose of having CEC.


    This is an issue with CEC in this build. Please look into it.


    Thank you.


    Daryl


    Yes, that is how I have my Pi setup. This is how I set it up when I first build a new PI.


    I always disable everything in CEC with the exception of keeping CEC enabled. Everything else gets disabled, or set to stop, or stop playback etc.. Identical to how you show.


    This just started when I upgraded to v10.0.0.1. All was working fine prior to the upgrade, so this tells me that the upgrade broke something and LE needs to fix it.


    Thank you.

    With both PVR and screensaver disabled, this is what I get when the LE turns on the TV



    The only constant is

    This seems to be the issue. At this moment, the only options that I have are to shut down the Pi when turning off the TV, or disable CEC, which defeats the purpose of having CEC.


    This seems to be an issue with LE. Please take a look at this and resolve.


    Thank you.

    It seems like the Kodi screensaver activates the TV over CEC.


    Test these workarounds:

    • Deactivate the Kodi screensaver.
    • Go into LE's input device settings, select "CEC Adapter", and make the RPi always send A/V signal over HDMI (and/or disable all TV wake-up calls).


    I don't see anything about sending A/V signals over HDMI. And all of the wake-up calls have been disabled, as a matter of fact, that is one of the first things taht I do when setting up a PI for this particular TV. When I first started using kodi years ago, this was an issue and I figured out that I needed to disable all wake-up calls to prevent this from happening.


    I also thought that it was the screensaver and disabled it as well, but the TV still turns on.


    Any additional thoughts?


    Daryl


    I disabled the screensaver and tested again. This time (and I've seen this before) I get a similar error when LE queries my local PVR.



    I've seen this before, and disabled the PVR, but the TV still turned on. However, I've never disabled the screensaver and PVR at the same time. I'll try that and see what happens.


    Daryl

    After watching the kodi logs and turning the TV off and allowing it to turn back on, I finally determined that this is the moment that the TV turns on.


    Hopefully someone can figure why and resolve this for me.


    Thank you.
