    Hi guys and gal, since there is a 16.1RC thread which still has relevance as alot are still the best "media" addons - https://vuplus-images.co.uk/index.php?threads/kodi-16-1-few-good-working-addons.17512/

    but we are now mostly on

    Kodi 17 which is on newer branches like OpenATV 6.0 - OpenVIX 5 - OpenBlackHOLE custom builds *non official.

    So here is a few things I have found, please few free to contribute to any issues/help/tip you come across, but lets leave all the talk/politics for elsewhere.

    Here is a few things

    1. Playing OWN media.

    Something I have never done, but I tried it and here is how I did it.

    external seagate expansion 2tb powered hdd used via raspberry pi3 so it becomes a NAS.
    On enigma 2 I mount it prior to Kodi by doing this

    Menu - setup - system - network - mounts setup - network browser - await to see my NAS - then click on it - enter my user/pass and these settings.
    Blocked out my ip and user
    NAS1.jpg

    Then in Kodi when LINKING your own media, I would go to the COG(settings) media settings - video - then ADD and my path would be /media/autofs/raspberrypi(if I have mount when needed) or /media/net/raspberrypi(if I have NAS as mount on boot)

    Then I scan my media and it plays fine.


    Media can then also be seen in IPTV PLAYER then LOCAL MEDIA and play direct on enigma2 as opposed to Kodi - https://vuplus-images.co.uk/index.php?threads/iptv-player-and-working-addons.17895/

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BUILDS - and SKIN SHORTCUT ERROR

    Some and most builds will say skin shortcut error, now this happens on enigma2. but the builds still work, it just means you cannot edit the TABS or SUB MENUS to suit, if if adding in other addons.

    But there is a fix I did on mine

    Go on putty and a SSH session.

    Then type

    opkg install python-profile

    Then skin shortcut error should be sorted.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If KODI freezes at all/

    Give it a minute or so, just incase its updating or become unresponsive, if so and instead of needing to get up and switch of at the back, then use TELNET whether already on laptop or get an app for phone, I have telnet lite on iOS.

    Log in to your box

    host - ip address from you box (you must know this already)
    user - root
    pass - normally empty/blank/nothing unless image suggests other wise.

    Then just type

    killall kodi.bin ------------ that takes you back to plugins menu instantly
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Kodi UI says 720p opposed to 1080p, this really does not matter as its just UI, all media normally plays via external media play which plays well above 720p.

    Use sites like SEO MICHAEL for tutorials or google, learn how to add stuff, remove and keep it a clean light build.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Most use standard external player i.e mediaplayer and to be honest it works pretty well compared to Kodi 16.1 RC, RC was OK, we still got benefits but it had alot more playback limitations.

    I have played / tried / tested 4k content, now this wont be "tru 4k" for one I dont have 4k tv, but this file would have been upscaled 1080p/slightly downscaled 4k and between 20gb to 50gb in size so still good quality
    It played fine.
    4k.jpg

    When watching via external player I use

    1 - rewind 10s
    4 - rewind 1 min
    7 - rewind 5 mins

    3 - fast forward 10s
    6 - fast forward 1 min
    9 - fast forward 5 min


    Overall I am very impressed considering it is still an enigma2 box and in reality its such a bonus to have such apps like Kodi and IPTV on there, that I am grateful even though I have Nvidia Shield I still find myself drawn to the vuuno4k ha.

    Hopefully you all can chip in if anyone needs any assistance and make this a goto thread for Kodi 17 on enigma2 talk.

    Current models are

    Vu+ Solo 2
    Vu+ Duo 2
    Vu+ SoloSE v2
    Vu+ Solo 4k
    Vu+ Uno 4k
    Vu+ Ultimo 4k

    Non Vu+ models include the Mutant HD51 and Edison Mega OS.

    I m having big problems with Kodi and my Solo 2, no matter the kodi version and/or the image. I even tried image backups.
    I tried most of them and I always have the same problem.
    Inside the same addon some lists are working fine but on some others the streaming doesn't start while they work o Windows and Android devices.
    It looks like a conflict among media players but I could be wrong and maybe missing something.
    All the needed addons are installed and all the dependecies are fine.
    Any suggestion? Thanks

    This is for Kodi 17 (the link for 16.1 is at top of first post) as versions and playback differ bestpost in what one depends on what version you use right now.

    Ok can I ask this.

    1. What addon?
    2. What section within that addon you referring to?

    Kodi 17.1 still proves to me a greasy addition to enigma2, yes few limitations but works well.

    I have x2 TV guides working

    iVue which is free and link to Addons either free Addon, paid addons and iptv m3u list free or paid.

    On-tapp which is paid epg, has one click installs for many paid Addons, can link a m3u and map channels list to epg.

    Not bad considering on enigma2.

    If on a latest image you can INSTALL PVR CLIENTS

    telnet

    opkg install kodi-addons-meta

    Not that it's much use as pvr only playing via internal player, and that has no sound, unless anyone knows a command/fix.

    I was not aware there was a mobdro plugin for Vu+ Kodi. Which repository is it from?

    Update: found it: http://lvtvv.com/repo

    When you have any errors you can check KODI LOGS, normally save on hdd somewhere, or use indigo plugin and click log viewer.

    Then addon related issues specific to not working, could be good to research / locate answers from many places.

    Exodus seems it needs a new update from devs then pushed.

    Doesn't work in either version of Kodi (16 & 17) on my Linux NAS either but does work as a stand alone application so quite dubious as to it working in Kodi at all now. As ever, happy for someone to prove me wrong & make me look like a :donki::mutley:
