I found the issue. For some reason not sure how.. the Content wasn't set properly for the TV folder and it wasn't scanning the folder because of it. Weird as LibreELEC is the Kodi instance I used often. Maybe the upgrade to 8.95.02 remove that for some reason? Not sure.. anyways it is fixed.
Thanks for the info Klojum. But 8.95.02 should be working using MyVideos113 right? No matter if another instance is using 116 as the one already upgraded to RC5.2. Or is that causing my manual library update to not work properly?
Checking the log I can see that Kodi is scanning my Movie folder (Volume1/Video) but I don't see it scanning my tvshow folder (Volume1/TV) where I added the new file. And I don't have a clue why not.
I have LibreELEC 8.95.2 along with other Kodi instances running on FireStick. They are all running Leia and sharing DB. Not sure if it is a coincidence but today I update one of my FireStick Kodi Instances to RC5.2 and that upgraded the DB. Now I added a new file to a folder already added on Kodi and I'm doing an update library on LibreELEC and is not showing up at all. If I browse through Files to the directory I can see and play the file just fine but it is not adding the info to the library.
Here is the latest log - http://ix.io/1yvm
Below all resolutions it support. It s a Sony VPL-295ES Native 4K Projector:
480/60p, 576/50p, 720/60p, 720/50p, 1080/60 i, 1080/50 i, 1 080/60p, 1080/50p, 1080/24p, 3840 x 216 0/24p, 3840 x 2160/25p, 3840 x 2160/30p, 3840 x 2160/50p, 3840 x 2160/60p, 4096 x 2160/24p, 4096 x 2160/25p, 4096 x 216 0/30p, 4096 x 2160/50p, 4096 x 2160/60p
So not sure why when selecting 3840x2160p it goes dark and the display never comes back up until I do a hard reset of my 8th Generation NUC with LibreELEC 8.95.02.
We will wait then for the next releases. For now HDR playback on standalone players. Another question.. When I tried changing the resolution of Kodi Interface from 1080P to 3840x2160P I get a black screen and projector goes into the state as if nothing is connected to it. I need to hard reset the NUC to get it to display again in 1080P. Am I missing something? The refresh rate is set @ 60.
I tried couple of HEVC movies with HDR and my projector do not engage HDR at all...
HomerJau and jbinkley60,
Any special configuration setting for that HDR (Kodi Tone Mapping)? I have a Sony 4K Projector for it and just wondering if I need to change some parameters on libreELEC for it.
Please let me know.
One last question JB.. have you tried a movie with HDR? I know the HDR on Intel Drivers is still a work in progress... but just checking if it is good now or if it is getting better.
Thanks for the info. I'll try that i5 or the i7 8TH generation with the latest LibreELEC v18 Kodi.
and what about this one? NUC8i5BEK1? It is an i5 but it should be sufficient right
Glad to hear that.. I will get a 7th gen NUC to replace my current very old NUC that can't handle HEVC at all.
Hi JB. What about Audio Passthrough? Is it working fine?
No worries... I made it work. Thanks.
Thanks a lot for that info. I was able to have my EPG loaded with data from my HDHomeRun. I'm not that so verse on cron / linux / etc. Can you guide me on creating the cron for updating/creating that file nightly?
And what about an nvidia shield? no go as well?
Milhouse. It worked out perfectly As you said I ended copying the sources.xml file to all my other Kodi instances as if I add a file etc I needed to go to my home theater (LibreELEC) and update the library there... so now I can update the library from any kodi I'm connected to. Thanks a lot for all your help.
I have two more problems.. I want your feedback.
1. I'm running libreELEC ver 8.2.0 build from cVH as I needed some dvb drivers to work with my USB Tuner driver I used for OTA connected to the libreELEC HTPC running on an Intel NUC. Does your latest Leia builds have those drivers built in? I tried one Leia build not remember from who and I had to revert back as everything was broken
2. I'm running Kodi 17.4 I think it is on libreELEC v8.2.0 on an Intel NUC 4th Generation Intel Core i3-4010U. Everytime I tried to run an HEVC file (H.265) kody start freezing and crashing. Almost sure it is too much for that CPU. I was wondering if getting a new 7th Generation Intel Core i5 NUC edition and move everything there (it is my main HTPC) or maybe there is other cheaper solution where I can put libreELEC, have my OTA Tuner working with Leia and of course play some decent HEVC and later on some 4K 10-bit HDR of course when time comes to that.
I would like to hear your opinions and recommendations on the matter and again thank you very much for helping getting the external DB and watched settings replicated correctly and in an easy way.
Thanks Milhouse... I'll give it a shot tomorrow and report back. Thanks a lot for all the help.
I'll give it a shot with your texturecache script. But I have some doubts.. If I ran the script for getting the watch status/count/etc on the existing library and directory kodi is using.. once I move Kodi on libreELEC to use the new sources with NFS:// will the watch status / etc will be apply correctly? If that is the case.. then let me know if the order of steps is correct:
1. Run texturecache script for getting all the watched status / count / etc for both existing local sources (Movies/TVs) [of course I need to know how to install the script on my existing libreELEC.
2. drop the database all the database all together and start fresh
3. point kodi on libreelec to the new mysql empty database
4. delete the existing mount of NFS shares at the OS level with the autostart.sh
5. add the NFS shares to kodi on libreelec and scrape the contents to the new library
6. then ran the texturecache again to restore the watched status / count / resume / etc on kodi libreelec
then what do I do on my other kodi instances besides pointing them to the new external database? Do I need to do something else to get the watched count etc on those boxes as well? Or will that start coming from the database?
Also if the order is not right let me know ... I am a good listener and thanks a lot for helping me on this.
