    I'm having trouble connecting to VYPRVPN. I put in the correct user and pass and I get the below error in the log.

    I tested my credentials logging out and logging back in on my PC app for VYPRVPN and they work fine. Can you help?



    Instead of UDP, when i switch to using TCP no VPN servers are pulled to select from. My only choices are "Switch between location and server views" and "Cancel connection attempt." Selecting the switch option does nothing.


    solved. I wiped out the downloaded files, and selected giganews account instead of the top two vyprvpn options. I got my access thru giganews.

    I use MediaCenterMaster to pre-load my metadata for my massive NAS library. It works really well - give it a try. No need to scrape in Kodi, but you can do so manually if you want. You can set it to put every movie in its own folder as well as rename the ovice and directories with info it scrapes from the video, etc.

    So I bought the same NUC and followed your directions. However, I'm having stuttering issues with 10 bit 4K video. I am stunned. All four cores are maxed out almost as if its not using the hardware to decode. Is there a setting or something I should check? VAAPI is enabled.


    edit: I found the modded build and it works great.


    yes thanks

    Code
    1. 10:52:35 T:140104080844544 INFO: ffmpeg[7F6C85F86700]: Stream #0:0: Video: hevc (Main 10), yuv420p10le(tv, smpte170m/bt709/bt709), 3840x2160 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], 23.98 fps, 23.98 tbr, 1k tbn, 23.98 tbc (default)


    so hevc isn't supported by your hardware, it is trying to software decode the video and that cpu probably doesn't have enough horsepower


    weird. i'm playing a different hevc video right now. One where I reencoded the audio from DTS to AC3. Also, the video size is smaller on that one. That must make just enough difference that it can software decode.

    Code
    1. xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 3840x2160 --rate 30.00


    that command should kick it into 4k.


    Im not sure why kodi isn't detecting it.
    Can you post the output of

    Code

    after swapping to a straight HDMI cable it works. no need to manually code. somehow LE didnt like my mini DP - HDMI pup cable, while OE had no problems with it.


    still have major lag issues though (also on OE). Would love to make this work, but thinking my NUC is underpowered.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ just trying to help


    Care to send me your unused NUC? [emoji13]


    thanks. appreciate it. why cant things just work? IM still using my NUC for plex media server. will try to make LE work too.


    let me figure out ssh

    note: this was after swapping out HDMI cable and miniDP pigtail for mini hdmi to hdmi cable straight to tv. THe resolution now works. However, the LE box is really laggy playing 4k content. unwatchable.

    So I took the plunge and upgraded from OE to LE (V7.90.008), and everything went great with one small exception. I no longer have 3840x2160P available as a resolution option. The resolution is not available to select.


    I have tried changing the refresh rate to 30 fps before trying the resolution, but no luck.


    4K worked fine with OE, but I cant make it work in LE. Nothing has changed in my setup or cabling.


    setup:
    Intel NUC 54250WYK
    miniDP-HDMI pigtail + High speed HDMI cable to HDCP2.2 port on sony TV (Video 4)
    Sony XBR55X850A


    Any tips or advice?


    Thanks.
