    Disregard the previous comment as this code worked when using a different website. Thanks!

    You could fake user agent string and referer in curl, if website expects regular browser opening URL and URL being accessed by clicking link on their site.

    curl --referer "" --user-agent "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/115.0"

    Your request would still stand out as it won't have session and other cookies and does not fetch referer page and all its objects.

    Redirect stdout and stderr output to log file or files.

    x x * * * /usr/bin/wget -O /storage/xxx/file.gz >/storage/temp.log 2>/storage/temp.err

    Libreelec wget is not regular wget binary. If wget does not work in cron, try curl.

    /usr/bin/curl > /storage/xxx/file.gz

    "file name constantly changes every time it is downloaded."

    Name can change only if wget refuses to overwrite existing file and creates new one, or that URL is redirector or data generator, which sets output filename in request headers and you are downloading without -O option. wget -O option overrides file name set by server.

    Zobi - Does the n100 have HDMI-CEC support?... that would be a deal breaker for me...

    N100 is CPU. Not motherboard where all the HDMI logic would be with integrated video. Next you will ask ad troll, if your car radio complies with CO2 emission standards.

    On a thread about ARM based low power device some decided to promote latest gen Intel products that are overkill for Libreelec requirements.

    Well... I currently run Libreelec from an 8 years old Raspberry pi 2. It still works fine, but I wanted to update (speed, 4K etc), and the RPi 5 seemed a great choice when it came out (+ I'm still a great fan of RPi !)

    But then I read the comments on N100 mini PC, and I have to admit that, in my situation, I agree N100 seems a better choice than RPi 5...

    Plenty of fanless celeron based mini pcs on the market and you seem to agree on promoting one specific vendor and model.

    You are talking about thing that is happening since v11.0.0. I think nano is impacted by same ridiculous screen redraw too. You probably got typo in "LE1`2.0.3" or time machine.

    4. Can I install and use FreeTube, or a similar privacy respecting YouTube client?

    5. Are there settings to ensure the OS/Kodi uses DNS that I can set?

    6. Is it possible to install Firefox and can I install add-ons (e.g. uBO etc)?

    7. Is there a decent TV remote style input device that works like a wireless mouse/keyboard so I can plug in the mini-USB receiver to the PC and use the 'remote'?


    4. That's called Firefox + adblock.

    5. DNS is set by DHCP server on the network or by static network configuration. Nothing kodi specific there.

    6. Only in x86 legacy build. Edit. My memory was wrong. Can't find it in addons anymore or maybe I was confusing it with Chrome.

    7. Search for air mouse on amazon.

    Greetings, I was trying to install LibreELEC on my PC, but after completing the downloading process when I try to install it, I am getting this error message "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000012d). Click Ok to close the application." I have no idea what could be the issue. Could someone please help me to fix the issue? Any kind of help would be highly appreciated.

    Libreelec is not application. It is whole OS set to run specific set of apps. You can't install it on your Windows PC.

    I have just installed Libreelec 11 generic, and I am a new user.

    For some reason, I can't find the Chrome addon at all, in the repository "libreelec Add-ons" under "program add-ons".

    Am I missing something?

    Chrome browser is X window application. Libreelec 11 generic does not use X window. They switched to different rendering to make ARM and x86 builds more similar. If you need X window apps, they might work only in Libreelec 11 legacy build for x86/x64

    There is old online store in UK that got loads of mini itx hardware and search form. Search form answers all your hardware questions. Store sells mini-itx stuff. You can guess its address :)

    mini PCs tend to not include optical drives to save space as you can attach optical drive via USB. Asus got mini pc option with two M2s and one SSD. Again saving space as 2 SSDs take more space. One of those Asus kits comes with Ryzen 6000H.

    AMD 6000H + 2 x SSD + internal Optical will probably reduce your options to zero as I can find only boards with 2 SATA ports and they come with AM5 sockets.

    Thank you for your answers, would you have any examples of NUC11 to advise me?

    Which processor (i3, i5, etc)?

    How many gigs of RAM?

    When I was talking about 100$ it's obviously for a second hand pc but I can put more obviously.


    Product Description Intel Next Unit of Computing 11 Essential Kit - NUC11ATKC2 - mini PC - Celeron N4505 2 GHz - 0 GB - no HDD

    Look for barebone pc in your online store and sort by price. If you don't know what air mouse is, check amazon.

    Although looks like local cheap hardware store does list multiple HP or dell mini pcs under 100 EUR and every single one comes with VGA, DVI or display port. No HDMI and extra charge for some infidel OS.

    Any x86 kit will work. Just go with the one with integrated intel graphics instead of some fancy nvidia one. bonus, if you get hdmi or your tv supports vga. Half of your price will be ram/ssd/mouse anyway.
