Re: VBox Kodi and BST (British Summer Time) change

Re: VBox Kodi and BST (British Summer Time) change

If I switch to TDT should I set the timezone to GMT or GMT+1 , given we are now in BST?

Why should this make a difference? Shouldn't this just set the box the same way as NTP (and given you still need to set the timezone)?

VBox Kodi and BST (British Summer Time) change

Hi I have XTI_VB.2.59 on an XTi-3332. Last weekend we went though the clock change (with the rest of Europe) from GMT to BST (British Summer Time). The VBox doesn't seem to perform this change itself (which is in itself a strange limitation) . So as in previous years I have changed the timezone from...

Re: Remote shutdown and restart

Yeah I find an overnight restart of vbox keeps it pretty stable. Sadly I also had the credential for the network storage going. I ended up changing a samba config to allow an fully open (no credentials) from the vbox IP. May not be an option on a NAS I guess. But here are my smb.conf additions , I h...

Software Updates XTI-3332

Hi My VBox XTI-332 on the Status page used to say "XTI_VB.2.57" and when first loaded would have a spinner next to this and eventually say "Up to Date" next to it. This still when first loading has a spinner next to it but doesn't say "Up to Date" anymore. If I go to "System -> Software Update" and ...

Re: RPi LibreELEC doesn't display HD channels

Replying to my own post, in case anyone else sees this. I have worked around this just now by un-setting "Allow hardware acceleration - OMXPlayer" in the Player settings -> Video (maybe export mode). This seems to force TV playback to use MMAL (maybe as it's still HW accelerated). MMAL seems to not ...

Re: RPi LibreELEC doesn't display HD channels

Sadly it was a fresh install of LibreElec that this was noticed from.
It's very annoying....

RPi LibreELEC doesn't display HD channels

Hi I use as my display device a Raspberry Pi 2 running LibreELEC with the VBox plugin, I also have the HW codecs installed. I have a strange problem that only seemed to appear with the bump to KODI 17, where when I switch Live TV HD channels they don't come up, I just get a black screen. If I go and...
