Re: Kodi is broken on raspbian buster

What file do I need to edit so that when I do a SUDO APT-GET UPDATE/UPGRADE, I will get Raspbian STRETCH? I plan to install kodi LEIA, then move back to BUSTER. Will this work and how do I keep kodi from updating after the install? You don't need to do that and it will not probably work. Please rea...

Installed this and it's dependencies but every-time I start Kodi up, it exits to cli and then I see the Kodi screen. once I exit Kodi, it's back to the desktop.

Is this normal?
Are you guys reading posts in this topic (at least first two)? You are a little bit spamming us all. 😌

Re: Kodi 18.3 Leia for Raspberry Pi 4

Kodi use 30-50% idle for one CPU core on main window GUI. While playing video it is okay = no extra % on top of the normal video playback load. I tried with different skins and Estuary has little bit lower CPU ~30% with added <smartredraw>true< to advancedsettings.xml CPU lowers to 4-19% but this s...

Re: Kodi is broken on raspbian buster

To install Kodi on Buster you'll need to uninstall the current version (if you have it installed) and use the pipplware repository for the time being. sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://pipplware.pplware.pt/pipplware/dists/buster/main/binary / wget -O - http://pipplware.pplware.pt/pipplware...

Re: Dispmanx VNC Server

It is not that it deosn't work at all. It just doesn't work on higher resolutions. Downsampling and option to specify resolution in config (what is possible with realvnc) would solve the problem.

I will do some testing and provide you with error.

Re: Kodi 18.3 Leia for Raspberry Pi 4

I found an interesting bug. I can't scan my library, kodi just freezes up and stops working. I also can't get the last picture that kodi showed away, even if I kill kodi via cmd line from another machine. Only a hard reset helps. Here a log I managed to get yesterday kodi_crashlog-20190803_033200.7...

Re: Kodi 18.3 Leia for Raspberry Pi 4

It would be nice to get it included in the official repo, but the way the vt switching is currently done is a bit hacky. I did write a small app to switch vts in a more proper way, but it is causing Kodi to become very slow for some reason. It is not just very slow, it is as well slow on exiting wh...

Hi, I used your advice about setting Display refresh rate to 'on start/stop' and set up the highest resolution in Kodi to 4096 x 2160. On other side my Raspbian resolution stayed on 1920x1080, 60.00Hz. Not sure if Raspbian buster resolution means something but this one fits nicely to my TV screen, ...

I know I can specify hdmi resolution in /boot/config.txt file but I don't want to do that, because I want to have spec...

Hi Marvin, ;-) I've installed your Kodi on my Pi4, working great, I've tried to stress it by playing 4K HEVC (h265) & it didn't even work up a sweat, about 10% CPU usage, processor not getting above 60C.

Re: Kodi 18.3 Leia for Raspberry Pi 4

I reinstalled entire kodi and removed stretch source from pipplware and used only buster one. It all works great, also CEC and everything.

Regarding little program for automation of launching kodi, it makes kodi indeed slow.
