    Still dont understand why anyone would want to try something else that is not user friendly, may not work, cause crashes, or whatever.

    OK, i understand that TVheadend development may be slow at this time, BUT, its a proven workhorse! It just gets the job done, does the job right and never complains (aka no major bugs, and TVH 4.2 with LE 9.x its stable, never causes system freeze/crash) It just does everything that anyone would expect it to do. What more would you need it to do? A honest curiosity lol :)

    I have been trying TVh4.3 myself in LE9 and i cant say it was not working, everything seemed working for me.

    BUT it was very unstable, kept causing Kodi restarts.

    Recently i also upgraded to Le10 nightly build & Cvh's build of TVh43 and i could not see any important changes regarding performance: Again crashes and (maybe just my idea, not sure) the web interface was sluggish sometimes, less responsive. (Intel GeminiLake, 8 Gb RAM)

    I am installing LE in a very old PC, everything works fine with LE 8 & TVHeadend installed, except from the pvr.hts client addon.

    When i install the 3.4.24 versions from LE inventory, kodi crashes.

    So... my question: Is there a way to download and try installing OLDER versions of pvr.hts addon built for LE8 ?

    Arch: x86_64

    Kernel: Linux 4.11.12 #1 SMP Thu May 3 03:33:11 BST 2018

    Release: LibreELEC 8.2.5

    EDIT: Never mind, found the problem... Its an old bug

    Funny thing it was me who faced this bug in the past, and i was not remembering about it hahahaha

    Mods, you can close this topic ;)

    Many thanks :)

    Ah... i was afraid that normal procedure would not work and would brick the box ...i dont remember where i have read this, so i never gave it a try hahahahaha

    Many thanks for reply, i will try later :)

    Can anyone please explain for us that are not so tech-experts

    what steps are needed to replace the installed windows with Libreelec

    Too soon to speak about memory and hangs, BUT, it LOOKS LIKE your solution has fixed for me another problem

    discussed in Intel forum here

    and also discussed in Kodi forums here LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0)

    I have not applied the solution proposed in those topics as i did not care much about those artifacts at the top of the screen ( they did not bother me since they are never visible during video playback)

    Maye LE guys should take a look at those problems too before the new release.

    There is something seriously wrong with the way Kodi manages memory (at least the x86_64 Linux version).

    I think so too... Never had problems with older hardware and older libreelec (or openelec), i remember machine was up and running like forever until i wanted to power off for some reason. New versions have a max life not more than 4-5 days of always increasing memory use, before hang and become unresponsive. I have added 8 giga RAM ( DDR4 ), did not help at all ( now system hangs when ram usageis about 40-50%

    Question: How can i test your suggestion? I do not see a kodi.conf file, do i need to create one and add this line?

    Ah! the z83

    I have one Z83 myself gathering dust ...not powerful enough for win 10 (imho)

    Should be ok for libreelec though - i hope! -

    And, it would be really nice to raise from the dead and have something useful to do :P

    SO... any help is welcomed. Anyone had success with deleting the awefull OS and installing Libre?

    Edit, April 10: File deleted.

    Here is an update for anyone needing the latest emu version

    First, install service from Livs post above.

    As explained do not update ( you can disconnect the internet when installing, and re connect after you uncheck the "auto update" button in Kodi ( My addons > services ) to prevent future updates

    The, replace the oscam file found in folder .kodi\addons\service.softcam.oscam\bin with the one attached in my post

    Emu version 791

    In my case, it works fine with Milhouse latest nightly :

    Many thanks L... i appreciate your help ...

    I will definitely try!

    6 more people already downloaded before me (!!!), so it looks like more people need it,

    i m hoping whenever someone has a newer version to post it here and keep this topic alive with updates

    Any chance someone can share the latest oscam-emu for libreelec 9.0 ( generic X86 -64 )

    I can only find some builds for ARM based processors ( libreelec for s905/912 boxes etc)


    If its just for Libreelec, do NOT buy a J5005 board

    The problem is NOT fixed, and it does not look like its gonna be fixed soon...

    I have been trying all sort of solutions mentioned here and in other forum topics, nothing works.

    Me, personally, i dont mind, BUT for most people this can be very annoying... And suggests a serious underlying issue...

    Avoid J5005...
