    I upgraded my NUC 8i7BEH to 9.1.002 / 9.2 earlier today. So far no issues across all media types. I'll keep an eye on memory usage since this version is supposed to fix the memory usage issues in earlier releases.

    It's been awhile since I've updated this thread. I worked with the splitter folks and they provided some new software but I still wasn't able to pass bitstream audio through the splitter using my NUC and LibreElec, just with my Vero 4K and OSMC. I decided to treat myself to a new AVR and bought a Yamaha RX-A3080, which is a much newer model than my older Yamaha RX-A3020. With the new AVR I was able to remove the splitter and go full HDMI 2.0 with 4K @ 60 fps. That solved the problem. I am now getting 4K @ 60 fps with bitstream audio. It also allows my streaming TV, which is running through a Roku Ultra into my AVR to run 4K too vs. being limited to 1080P. It was an expensive solution but something I had been planning to do at sometime.

    My issue is resolved. I was behind 2 versions of the PVR addon running version 2.0.1 . The bug was fixed in 2.02:


    v2.0.2 (2019.05.08)


    - Update SQLite database engine to version 3.28.0

    - Prevent multiple Kodi threads from simultaneously requesting EPG data

    - Prevent individually malformed EPG data request results from aborting all remaining requests

    - Fix bug that allowed extraneous EPG entries to be transferred to Kodi

    - Fix bug that prevented successfully setting channel visibility flags

    - Fix bug in database layer that could cause unhandled exceptions processing NULL column values


    I've updated to 2.03 and the issue is resolved.



    Ok, so I answered my own question. I found the kodi.FAILED folder. I deleted both the HDHomeRun addon and the unofficial HDHomeRun PVR addon and things stabilized. I reinstalled both one at a time and Kodi started crashing again once I installed the unofficial PVR client and it started processing the guide. I've placed a note in the HDHomerun foorum where the author closely monitors: Right now I am leaving the PVR client removed and things are stable.

    I am convinced the HDHomeRun PVR Addon is likely causing the issue because the reboots occur while the EPG is being updated as soon a Kodi comes up. How were you able to disable the addon because in Safe mode it isn't installed and thus is stable ? I am stuck in a loop where the reboots and Kodi restarts occur faster than I can do anything in normal mode.


    The 3 Addons which were automatically updated yesterday were:


    Universal Artist Scraper

    Universal Album Scraper

    The Movie Database

    I am seeing the same thing on my Intel NUC. It started a couple of hours ago. I haven't done any troubleshooting yet but it's been rock solid and never booted into safe mode until now. I had the same behavior, multiple reboots and then boot into safe mode. At a causal glance I see where some add-ons automatically updated today. I'll watch this thread and see what comes of this before doing anything else.

    I'll give that a shot and see what happens. My issue is related to when I run two interfaces out of my NUC and then switch away and come back. From what I know the autoexec.py file only runs when Kodi starts. In my case it disappears when running and a restart will fix it but that doesn't solve the fundemental issue. I will give it a shot and see what happens.

    I continue to work on solving this issue. So far I updated the goFanco HDMI splitter to the latest firmware and updated the Intel NUC to the latest BIOS, v71, which just came out last week. Neither have resolved the issue. I opened a ticket with the goFanco folks and they have been extremely responsive and are looking into the splitter software, specifically the EDID parameters which are being presented to the NUC. They sent me a utility today which I loaded on a laptop and hooked the laptop HDMI output to the Yahama AVR. The software then was able to query the EDID responses from the Yamaha AVR receiver.. They are currently analyzing the data. They did have been try some configuration changes which do manipulate the EDID being presented to the NUC. That did not work. Hopefully the EDID dump will be useful in determining the issue. Through all of this the OSMC Vero 4K+ continues to work properly but from what I can tell it has a more fixed EDID configuration and doesn't appear to learn all of the EDID information from the external sources, just some of it.
