I had to downgrade to 4.2.5 NAS firmware to make it work again.
It looked like the sound was garbled.. The Kodi could not find the right driver or what.. and then it crashed..

Spent several hours of backups and reinstalls. Looking for a solution in every update..


from what vendor do you use Kodi?
The notorious qpkg from the qnapclub?


I am using the qpkg from qnapclub and it is causing me problems. Are there any alternatives?


Yes, friend :wink: :wink:

Awesome suggestion. Thanks for replying. I'm afraid however that the link is down (The requested URL /Q/F/mykodi17_17.3.0.zip was not found on this server.). Any backups? I also don't mind getting an older version e.g. 17.0 or 17.1. As long as I can play video's again ;-) Thanks again.

Thanks again, installed it, and it plays video, but sound is stuttering and sometimes video starts all over again. Any suggestions?

Hi,

Please provide more information ...
QTS / HD_Station versions you use
model of QNAP
information on your link (kind of TV, did you test with other HDMI cable, did you use an AVR ???
information on your settings and list of audio devices available (view by kodi)
information (detail , codecs, encoding profile, etc) of the faulty movie ... eventually provide a link to the movies or a sample

At end add debug option (audio part or audio and video) and redo a test with faulty movies to have a full kodi.log (don't forgot to uncheck option at end ... to don't have biggest kodi.log all the time

ONLY log and detail can open a way to solve your problem
... I use lot of testings video coming from Kodi tests files ... so this files works well ... BUT this can't proof that ALL files can run well

Last, remember, it's a user forum and I am a user like you, no more, ... so we can try to help, but it's also possible to provide same information on Kodi forum to know if similar problem exists ... (only QNAP part are not relevant for kodi forum (two first information requested here before))

Philippe.
NB I have only a x53 Pro (so first generation of x53 series) and a x73 (AMD S.O.C.) so I can't test or know all the specific things relative to each series and models ...

I've experienced the same. Using Father Mande's excellent MyKodi (Qnapclub version is a dog with poor support, worth avoiding):
Under one of the settings (Player, I think) with the setting level set to expert you can toggle OFF two different versions of "Hardware acceleration". With one of the options on I get an instant Kodi exit when trying to play any video file, with the other I get an out of sync & stuttering audio. With both off - it plays fine.

Hope that works for you.

Hello all. Thanks Father for the updates for Kodi.
I have a question, but it may be more than can be answered (possibly, hope not).
I have the TS-451+. I had to back out of 4.3.2 some time ago do to my remote control not working anymore. So I am back at 4.2.5 which works fine most of the time with Kodi 17 (RC).
I still use 16 and I believe I am on HD Station 3.1B or A.
I'd like to upgrade to a newer release, but I don't want to go thru all mess if it doesn't work again.

So, can I use 17.3 Father Mandate build on my current install? If so, great I will just use that and rock on. If I need to upgrade other parts. Any one have any luck with my particular model and which versions of firmware/HD station/Kodi I should be at?

Any help would be great, thanks. I also use this for surveillance station and need my camera to work with it as well. I don't recall that breaking before, so I think I should be ok either way.

Thanks!

Hi,

F.Y.I. I write the model and QTS / HD_Station I use for my tests ...
... I try to follow each update to be sure that no regression exist ... BUT this imply that I can't check if mykodi17 works with previous QTS and / or HD_Station

Theoretically it MUST works
1 ... because it's not linked to QTS itself, except for kernel modules change by QNAP (so if lirc problem are not linked to kernel modules ... problem is ONLY linked to HD_Station where lirc is configured) BUT only to HD_Station
2 ... I can test ONLY on model I own (one x53 Pro (first generation) and one x73) ... I am a user like you not QNAP's or QNAP's support member as others ...
... so if something is different due to the CPU / SOC or change in QTS or HD_Station ... I have NO POSSIBILITY TO TEST on this modified models ...

So my recommendation is :
install mykodi17 (.3)
... test it ... if fail ...
... have a look to kodi.log (date_time of the file and content if started), dmesg to see if a kernel problem or segfault is displayed and try to start mykodi17 manually to have in a console the output (ex. for a missing library in your model ... in this case I can try to provide the missing libs ... )

Minimum requirement are QTS 3.x and HD_Station 3.1.x (as I know) but in fact I don't know for QTS 4.2 ... I will move to 4.3 early before mykodi17 first delivery ...

Philippe.
