    Okay, just to get things clear. Is the video calibration really the only thing that gets reset after a reboot? Every other setting gets stored, video and/or music databases get updated?

    Also, why do you need video calibration anyway? Do have have some old CRT monitor attached? Current TVs shouldn't have a problem with a PC video signal.

    I have a LG HD TV connected via HDMI - it's about 5 years old. When set to 1080 60Hz (or 50 - no other options available), the screen always needs resizing via the video calibration. Resizing is required the for Libreelec 8/Kodi 17, too, only that remembers.


    It's not just a CRT issue.


    In terms of settings, I think it's just the video calibration.

    So, just going back to the DVB drivers question.....


    In the latest Kodi, there are 3 options for DVB drivers. I had the impression that they were a mechanism for adding a DVB adaptor to Kodi and there would then be some Kodi dialog that would automatically search for TV stations etc as you'd get with a standard television/PVR box (i.e. Like what tvh does but without the hassle).


    I guess this was flawed as Kodi supports DVB adaptors anyway (or at least it supported by Xbox One adaptor).


    If they're not for that, what are they for? Is it for where Kodi doesn't natively support a DVB adaptor but will if one of the drivers is used (prior to configuring tvh)?

    I installed Libreelec 9 last night and set TVHeadEnd up.

    Everything was OK apart from the client password.

    Via the TVheadend web config, I had set 1 admin and 1 standard user account (and passwords) up.

    I could access the webconfig via these accounts no problem.

    I hadn't set the tvh client user/pass in Kodi up prior to setting the passwords up in the webconfig.

    I then set the kodi user/pass for the standard account in the tvh client via Kodi but got a "cannot access" warning each time it tried to connect/I restarted Kodi.

    I then tried the admin account user/pass and this didn't work either.


    I seem to remember having the same problem when I set up 8.x but cannot find the information.

    This would seem to be a fundamental issue as I don't think I've gone through a strange sequence to set up TVH/Kodi.


    How do I fix this, please?


    (Also, does anyone have up to date TVH settings for Wrekin/Sutton Coldfield transmitters?)

    Cheers. You still "have to" use tvh? You can't just pick some DVB drivers in Kodi and then tune from there?


    I'd sort of imagined that you could since they're now available in the way that they are but maybe I've made a stupid assumption

    Hi all,


    I'm currently running Libreelec with Kodi 17 and have an Xbox One DVB adaptor for live telly.


    I downloaded the beta yesterday as I was interested in the retrogaming/netflix/whether the DVB experience has been improved. I installed this to a separate USB drive and tried a few things out but it appeared that Kodi 18 wasn't liking the Xbox DVB tuner out of the box.

    So, can Kodi 18 handle DVB adaptors natively these days? i.e. I notice it has some DVB drivers that can be installed. Should it be possible to install the correct one [for an Xbox DVB USB tuner] and then commence tuning etc without having to install something like TVHeadend?


    If the above is not possible, since I was using TVHeadend, is this still the preferred option for live TV/PVR? Although I configured my Kodi 17 setup about 18 months ago, I don't recall the exact steps for getting the live TV up and running. Is there a step by step guide for doing this involving getting the minimal amount of components etc and then subsequent configuration? I do remember there being a "bit of a faff" about logging into the TVHeadend server remotely and then setting it up but I wonder if all this has now been streamlined?


    Thanks for any assistance :)

    Hi,


    I've not got one for LibreElec since I've put OpenElec back on it.


    Would this help (from OpenElec) ?


    I can put it back on but it'll be a pain.....

    I should add...I just read the thread titled "Graphic glitches" and the problem I have is different; my lines are always black, never different colours.

    Hi,


    New user here...


    I used the upgrade to go from OpenElec to the latest version of 7.0.2.


    I used the intel generic build (since I am using a HP SFF 8200 Elite PC and its on board graphics to run Kodi from a 4GB compact flash)
    The PC is hooked up to an LG telly via HDMI.


    It took me a few days to notice occasional black horizontal lines appearing on the screen; these are not present if I watch normal television. The lines are a few pixels "wide" and generally appear one at a time, fairly randomly but certainly within a 10s period of each other.


    Occasionally, maybe once every 5-10 mins, when watching video or listening to audio (e.g. Internet radio), the screen will blank for approx 1-2s and then resume.


    I checked all connections etc and everything is fine.


    Since I did not notice it at first, I put it down to installing a heavier duty skin but it still occurs even if I revert to Confluence. In fact, it happens on any skin.




    This morning, I then tried to re-install LibreElec from scratch to avoid it being an 'upgrade' problem but the problem remains. I also noticed it during the 'LibreElec' splash graphic on start up after this last attempt so I presume it's a graphic driver problem(?)


    Aftewards, I reverted to OpenElec but left it on the 'curses' style installation screen for several minutes just to check that there were no black lines appearing...there weren't.


    I then installed OpenElec fully and left it on the normal main menu for several minutes and the problem is not present anymore.


    Is this a known issue? If I was running some esoteric hardware, I could maybe understand it but I think I'm running something about as vanilla as it can get. I know it's not a hardware problem (e.g. something getting hot and going wrong) as it was happening this morning with Libre but not immediately afterwards with OpenElec.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks.
