Not Working With KODI 17.8

Question

Hi,

Previously the CV version in the KODI repo has been working fine, but now that I updated KODI to 17.8, all I get is a black screen after CV starts. No errors. Has anyone else upgraded and experienced the same?

thx

17.8. It’s been working fine until the upgrade. Like original KODI 17 posts in this forum, it just displays a black screen.

I was not aware there were any blanking issues with 17.  What version of 17 did you upgrade from?  Can you post a log?

I upgraded from 17.7. Is anyone else using 17.8 with no issue?

I checked log and looks like CV is throwing an error related to iTunes scraper. I’ll post a log when I can remote into the box to download it, but is that scraper broken?

Are you meaning the iTunes scraper for trailers?  I can verify at lunch today.  The most I've seen in the past is people having buffering issues with iTunes, but I run my trailers at 720p and haven't had that issue.

I just verified my iTunes trailers are working with my sequence.  It showed Death on the Nile and Dune trailers.

So I figured out the problem. I was setting up to generate a debug log, and CV worked fine. I turned debug logging off in KODI settings and it would not work as before, blank screen. Then I remembered all the same behavior we discussed in another thread when KODI 17.1 came out, which broke CV. It was after version 1.1.1a12 was posted in that thread did it start working for me. I had rebuilt my KODI box a few months back and I installed CV from the KODI repo thinking it was the latest and greatest. Fortunately I had a backup of 1.1.1a12, so I uninstalled the repo version and installed my backup. Vola! It works fine.

I really think what is in the KODI repo is the wrong version, as it will not work for me.

When you mentioned the debug logging info, it did strike a cord with me as well.  I remember somebody mentioning that a while back.  Glad you figured it out.
