    Adding LOGNOTICE=0 to didn't work

    But solution two did! By commenting out all the line you've mentioned with xbmc.log :)

    Thanks a lot!

    @jane_t I use your script which is awesome, but it contentiously writes it temperature measurements in kodi.log.

    I continuously leave my Pi on the whole day because it doesn't consume that lot of energy. If I do so then my log file becomes very big.

    Can I disable this?

    I already have take a look into the control panel, and the write to log is disabled, is there an other setting also?


    I had the same issue and I have solved it by enabling caching.

    Just add advancedsettings.xml by doing the following commands:

    touch /storage/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml

    nano  /storage/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml

    and add the following code in advancedsettings.xml:

    This solved the problem in my case. I also use a RBPi4 with 4GB memory.

    I hope this helps for you.

    I will try that. The pity is that the Pi 4 must be cooled. Even in standby it is gets pretty hot.
    When I disable the script they both work tough, but the fan stays spinning.
    But I go to figure this out with some jumper cables and change the position of the fan to the other site of the Pi with some modifications

    I've never had a problem with unmount or shutdown with the addon running - there is nothing in the code to hinder that.

    However, yes the fan will continue to run once the system has shutdown - (Also before LE has booted). Not too sure if the code can be reversed so that this doesn't happen but as this was their first attempt at writing an addon, I think we have to live with the results for the moment.

    Problem found, I have enable the Hifiberry settings in the config.txt and the problem is gone. So if I shutdown LibreElec only the LibreElec logo/version appears and not wich deamon is closed down. 8)

    @lridium changing the GPIO pins in the script is not an option.
    But there is a way to go Irusak's option. I have a GPIO extend board. So my idea is to attach a jumper cable to pin 32 (BCM12) to pin input 12 (BCM18).

    So I have to figure out which config file is used by the HifiBerry. Or am I wrong?

    Hi there,

    I have a Fan SHIM and a HifiBerry, but I want to use them together. They both use BCM18. So you would think it is possible, if the fan wasn't depending on a script to turn automatic on and off by the CPU temperature. The Fan is using this BCM18 for its fan control with this script. But without this script they work together, but the fan will always spin.
    So my question is: Is it possible to disable this script that is started with when playing a movie or music. And enable it again when this media is stopped playing?

    Thanks a lot!

    The same here with pictures. If my scraper tries to fetch an image, then all the other movie images are going black (even the backgrounds). They appear after a few seconds, tough.
    Can I do a role back? The old Beta version didn't had this problem at all. So I can wait for a fix.

    Thanks a lot!

    Found it! The Western Digital drive spins down, but it takes 30 minutes after its last read/write command. I thought it would never stop :D I can live with that, and it's very quiet though. Not like those drives in the early days which sounds like a helicopter that was taking off. 8o


    I have the add-on system tool installed and I want to use hd-idle to spin down my external hdd because hdpram is not working for my drive. Where can I find the config files and how do I set this up? /shrug


    That's the pity of Linux, because the most software is freeware the designers and developers are dependent of crowdfunds and the good will from others. If that stops or the costs are higher than the profits some good projects quit. :(

    Anyway, I bought myself an single LCD display from Adafruit with HD44780 driver support. I still have to solder it, apply the LCDproc software, and we're good to go. ;) Then I can also use the Pi without a TV monitor for listing to my music :cool:

    Thanks again for your support! :thumbup:

    Nope, no go.

    Yesterday I had installed Raspbian on my Pi and installed pifacecad on it and that was working. But when I used LCDproc it also worked, but the display was all scrambled and the LCDd command with the config loaded did not stop.

    This morning I read a post on that OpenLX has suddenly stopped on December 2015 in devolping there Python software pifacecad.

    Why do they still ship those hats then, if they don't developing there software anymore :rolleyes:? I asked the store where I bought the PiFace CAD from for a refund. I hope I could exchange it for something else from Adafruit they are still devolping ;)
