What's the problem with writing to an actual usb drive (or even a memory card) and using that to install on your hard drive?
My drives all have labels and are mounted consistently with the label names. The alternative (more reliable but more of a faff) is to mount using the uuid. It's a long time since I looked at this, but iirc you can use e2label for ext drives / fatlabel / ntfslabel (though I've always used windows for the latter 2).
It's not clear what you're trying to do. Are you wanting to wipe windows and install LE on your pc's hard drive?
Obvious points are obvious. The fact remains shutting down from the start menu gives a different result to closing programs first. It's not unreasonable to think linux might be similar.
You won't ask the same question if the "Shutdown" menu in Windows is safe, I think...
I never (or at least rarely) shut down windows without closing running programs first. Shutting down from the start menu means programs start up automatically in their previous state, and the whole process is noticeably quicker than shutting down programs manually and waiting for their processes to fully stop. It's not unreasonable to suppose something similar might be happening with reboot / poweroff - whether it is or not..
stick a new file with just your changes in storage/.kodi/userdata/keymaps
Keymap files in ./usr/share/kodi/system/keymaps are read in alphabetical order.
Then files in userdata/keymaps are read - also alphabetically.
If the same key is mapped more than once the last mapping is used.
Looking through that there's no power key detected at any point. Without knowing how your Harmony is configured all I can say is to map Shutdown() to a key you know works (one that shows up in the log) and try again.
Needs a debug log.
...enable debug logging, restart, try switching off again, post debug log.
If you've enabled debugging in the gui it's obvious because you have text all over the screen.
I was under the impression that customcontroller.Harmony.xml only worked under osx (might be wrong).
Save the following as remote.xml to userdata/keymaps and test...
If it doesn't work enable debug logging, restart, try again and post a link to a log.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
Same as any other kodi version AFAIK.
Stick a keymap in storage/.kodi/userdata/keymaps, or use the keymap addon in the kodi repo to map the function.
Just be aware if you have any custom keymappings already the keymap addon will nuke them (without warning).
Libreelec settings > services > Samba > auto-share external drives (off)
Shutdown menu is just literally the menu right? As it not selecting to actually shutdown?
On PMP I used the keymap and just mapped that one button for poweroff and it worked a charm.
Was just wondering if I could do something similar here?
Map a key to 'ShutDown()'
'Can't find window videolibrary'
'videolibrary' hasn't been around since jarvis - it's now 'videos' - so that's not a skin issue.
If anyone wants to change line 11 of service-LibreELEC-Settings-mainWindow.xml that error at least should disappear.
Try keymap.xml instead.
As I understand it the file name is irrelevant (other than any .xml files in userdata/keymaps are applied in alphabetical order).
A debug log will show whether the file is valid.
Check out the iptv recorder addon (thread on the kodi folder). I haven't tried it (not using iptv at the moment) but from reading the thread pause is now possible (and possible in the simplepvr addon if you can recompile)..
You should find the libreelec settings addon under programs in confluence.
