Thanks for the effort! I was just wondering about the python-libcec package, is it necessary for cec to work properly in Kodi? The package in the pipple repo is 3.0.1-2 and doesn't install with libcec 3.0.1-3. I'm not at home and need someone to check for me, so I can't easily test it.

Not needed by kodi itself, AFAIK.

No, not related to Kodi. It is for controlling other programs on the system with CEC, like Emulation Station, for example.

Wow such great help. Since my Kodi 15.2 on Raspian-Jesse isn't working I'm going to try some of the above ideas before I wipe the SD card and start over. Thanks.

BTW: A user has reported "Error in Pandoki plugin version 0.8.0. - Kodi 16(Jarvis)"

That is on Windows and it seems to be a problem in the addon, not in Kodi.

This is for Raspbian only, and maybe Raspbian based distributions.
In Arch Linux you can install Kodi via pacman. You also have PKGBUILDs for Kodi.

Questions related to Arch Linux you should post them in Arch sub forum or on their own forum.

Which configs do you mean? The only /boot/config.txt option that needs to be set is gpu_mem (at least 160 MB).
Which version did you install? Did you seen any errors during installation?

Hi guys,

So I'm new to the RPi and have got myself stuck so hopefully someone can help! :P

I set enabled = 1 in the kodi configuration file to auto run kodi on start up, I now want to change it back but can't as it always boots straight into kodi and quitting kodi just restarts the RPi and I'm back in kodi...

Is there a way to interrupt/cancel the auto run on start up or to access a terminal window from kodi?

Any help would be appreciated, trying to avoid wiping the sd card if I can!

Thanks

You did install the armv7 version right ? It has significant performance improvements in HEVC over the armv6 version.
Yes I included the path 'http://pipplware.pplware.pt/pipplware/d ... mv7/binary /' in my '/etc/apt/sources.list' file as well as 'http://pipplware.pplware.pt/pipplware/d ... ain/binary /'
Kevin.
I saw yesterday that there is an (stable?) )ArmV7 version of Kodi 16 RC2 from Pipplware too....and it works GREATTTTT for me on my Pi 2 until now. Its menu is much more fluid and reactive than in 15.2 repos-version....and if you edit the .desktop-file in /usr/share/applications and change Exec=Kodi to Kodi --standalone, the exit to Lxde works fine, too.

Btw, is it better now to leave the inserted paths (for updates) in the sources-list, or to remove them, to avoid problems with the 'normal' repository/security?

If you want to receive Kodi updates, you have to stay with the repos. There is no problem having them along side the Raspbian repos. It just has additional packages and some newer versions of the software available.

Ok, many thanks! And whatever this Pipplware is (I do not know spanish), lets hope this will work as it does for a long time :)


Does anyone know if there possibly is a way to prevent Kodi from shutting down my TV on exit except removing the complete IR/cec-functionality?

PiPplware is a Raspbian based linux distribution for the RPi. The website is in portuguese. The Kodi packages you installed are from there.

You can configure that in System -> System -> Input Devices -> Peripherals -> CEC

Re: Kodi 15 Packages for Raspbian Wheezy & Jessie for RPi2

Kodi 16.1 is now available for instalation in the PiPplware repos.

Announcement/changelog available here: https://kodi.tv/kodi-16-1-jarvis-mark-xvi/

If you already have Kodi and the repo configured, you only need to update the system.
If not, here are again the complete instructions. All of this is done in a virtual terminal:

Add the pipplware main repository by editing /etc/apt/sources.list or create a new file like /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pipplware_jessie.list, with the following line:

Code: Select all

deb http://pipplware.pplware.pt/pipplware/dists/jessie/main/binary /
If you have a Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 also add the ARMv7 repository, below the line above, to install ARMv7 optimized packages. WARNING: This will not work on the Raspberry 1 and Zero models:

Code: Select all

deb http://pipplware.pplware.pt/pipplware/dists/jessie/armv7/binary /

Than add the key:

Code: Select all

wget -O - http://pipplware.pplware.pt/pipplware/key.asc | sudo apt-key add -
And update, upgrade and install Kodi:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install kodi
To install PVRs you can run the following command to list all PVRs available:

Code: Select all

apt-cache search kodi-pvr
And then install what you want, for example:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install kodi-pvr-iptvsimple
Then, to run Kodi you can use the icon the LXDE menu or run the following command:

Code: Select all

kodi
or

Code: Select all

kodi-standalone
To have everything working nicely on Raspbian you also need to set the right permissions:

You have to create the group "input" if it doesn't exist.

Code: Select all

sudo addgroup --system input
Create & edit the following file:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/99-input.rules
Enter the following text and save it:

Code: Select all

SUBSYSTEM==input, GROUP=input, MODE=0660
KERNEL==tty[0-9]*, GROUP=tty, MODE=0660
Create & edit the following file:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/10-permissions.rules
Enter this text and save it:

Code: Select all

# input
KERNEL=="mouse*|mice|event*",   MODE="0660", GROUP="input"
KERNEL=="ts[0-9]*|uinput",     MODE="0660", GROUP="input"
KERNEL==js[0-9]*,             MODE=0660, GROUP=input
# tty
KERNEL==tty[0-9]*,            MODE=0666
# vchiq
SUBSYSTEM==vchiq,  GROUP=video, MODE=0660
Run the following commands for user pi (if you haven't changed your user name):

Code: Select all

sudo usermod -a -G audio pi
sudo usermod -a -G video pi
sudo usermod -a -G input pi
sudo usermod -a -G dialout pi
sudo usermod -a -G plugdev pi
sudo usermod -a -G tty pi
A minimum of 128 MB for GPU is required for Kodi. If you want to play high bitrate 1080p videos set at least 160 MB. For the RPi 2 and 3 the recommended is 256 MB. In config.txt:

Code: Select all

gpu_mem=160
or

Code: Select all

gpu_mem=256
If you want to enable software decoding (mpeg-2, vc-1, VP6, VP8, Theora, etc) you also need this line in config.txt:

Code: Select all

start_x=1
That's it. Enjoy.

Hello Rascal. After upgrading to 16.1 my Kodi setup stopped working. It hangs on loading and monitor turns black.

Thank you for the hard work, previous version was perfect.

Very likely to be an unofficial addon or skin causing problems. For example, skin Arctic Zephyr is incompatible with 16.1 and causes something like that.

Ok, i figured out was the skin causing the problem. I just solved reinstalling kodi using an older package:

sudo apt-get install kodi-bin=2:16.0-5~jessie
sudo apt-get install kodi=2:16.0-5~jessie

Hi, I think your last command is wrong, reading official eLinux-RPiconfig start_x=1 is for enabling Camera:

Partially. What I wrote above is correct. And it also enables the camera. ;)

It should be

fixup_file=fixup_x.dat
(or fixup_file=fixup_x.elf formerly, not sure if it has been renamed - I'm still using the old version and it is working)
to enable the additional codecs. They work for me.
