    So, I've now got some time to check things out by enabling debug log as well. I can see that there are some problems this time, when parsing my remote.xml:

    Remember that I am using confluence and not estuary here (in case that matters). I am not a coder, but it feels as though there used to be tags for windows like "videolibrary"/"videofiles", with now do not exist on krypton/confluence... Can someone help here?

    From the the lack of responses I can only presume that no-one has experienced this, or perhaps I have not searched good enough for similar issues.

    In any case, would someone be kind enough to perhaps try my remote.xml on krypton/rpi to see if:

    * in movie/episode view, pressing red on a movie/episode brings up the context menu and

    * also in movie/episode view, pressing green on a movie/episode opens up the information view?

    Thanks in advance to anyone taking the 15' to try this and report back. Like I said, the same remote.xml file worked flawlessly from OE 5.x to LE 7.x...

    I'm using a custom remote.xml file on RPi2 on my Sony tv, plus a couple of boxes for friends and family.

    CEC remote file ~/.kodi/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml : ibeS

    I do not use any other customizations. This custom remote file adds some things for CEC remotes like:

    * pressing blue during playback to download subs,

    * pressing red to display the context menus while in movie/episode view

    * pressing green to pop-up the information window (story, actors, plot etc)

    This remote.xml has been used without a single change from the days of OpenELEC 6.x. It worked perfectly after the ugprade to LE 7.x. Problem is that the two last bindings have stopped in LE 8. Any idea what might be at fault here. I have not produced any logs so far, if needed please tell me which debug options (CEC?) I should check please.

    Nice thread. Apologies for re-opening it after almost half a year, but as a VLAN newcomer, I'd appreciate if you could explain how the rest of the network is used.

    Let me explain. I have an unmanaged switch connected to a avm fritz 7270 (IIRC) ADSL router. As far as I have read on VLANs you have to have some sort of managed switch to have trunking etc.

    Or do you just have a router that understands VLANs and keeps them separate? I'd appreciate any sketch you might have on your network, I'm in need of a similar separation on my own home network and I don't know how to go about it.


    I've got an Rpi2 running LE 7.0.2. Connected is a Logitech Dinovo dongle. The assorted keyboard works fine with it. what I want to do though, is use BT devices like a Sony Ps3 remote with it. I don't care if I would not be able to work with he keyboard anymore.

    I've rnabled BT in the LE settings, but it does not see any BT devices. I've read that switching to HCI mode might be needed, but I'm not sure on how to proceed from here.

    Any advice willbe appreciated.

    I have a number of RPi2 boxes upgraded from OE 6.0.3 to LE 7.0.2.

    Some of them and not all of the time, after reboot are initialized with a date on June 2016! My NTP servers are, and

    I've made some ntpdate -q queries on them, but all report the current time/date. I don't know what to make of this issue, I'll try to get debug logs and attach them here.

    This is an intermittent problem, so it might be a while till I upload these logs here. In the meantime, if someone has experience anything of the like, please feel free to share.

    Just found out about this addon. Not having worked with Chromium before, I'd like to ask a couple of things:

    1) Does chromium require a keyboard / mouse for proper operation?

    2) Can one return back to LE by pressing some combination?
