Hello My Duo2 almost 3 years old has started to freeze and the spinner appears, as in freeze I mean no response to the remote but the channel we are watching remains fine, just can't switch channels etc with the remote and need to power off and on again. Then we get around an hour of trouble free before it happens again. I read on a post elsewhare that the FAN CONTROL 2 plugin could cause this so I removed it but I did suspect that might be a red herring as I have had that installed for 18 months without issue.

When it first happened and it rebooted I checked the temperatures etc and it was a little high so I increased the fan speed the temperature came down OK.

I have checked for any crash logs and there have not been any until this last freeze it is attached any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank You in advance.

You are using blackhole old version. BlackHole 3.0.5 which was last time opkg updated in 2018-05-30
the source date shows during this time it has alots of updates not only with pythons/libs but also with media codecs and g streamer to. there is no any major issue rathe then the box have old image and really needs update . the best way to flash new image and always use the skins from feed .

I resolved MY issue by removing the Fan Control 2 plugin, no further issues since. Thanks
