19.0-Matrix Discussion

Did you enable it? Under Settings, Services, Control.

Kodi http webserver is disabled by default as it’s a security issue.

I updated from 18.9, it was enabled before update

Now it’s mandatory to have a user/password @giaur500. Configure that in CE and Kore and you’re fine.

Update applied, so it’s even too late. I think I have no so much things to set up, so I don’t need to backup.

Sorry and best regards… :slight_smile:

Sorry, I’ll investigate and get back to you.

Yours truly…

I have 19 nightly, will it automatically switch to 19 stable? Or it will stay on nightly tree, and if I want stable I have to specifically download that?

AFAIK it will switch to stable and will stay stable

no, you need to update by stable manually.

like by SSH:

cd .update
wget https://github.com/CoreELEC/CoreELEC/releases/download/19.0-Matrix/CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-19.0-Matrix.tar

Just tested the final release on a MECOOL KII Pro (S905D) . Everything I tested worked well. Even DVB-S2 with tvheadend.


  • Download the generic .img.gz, do not chose your device at dtb, it will take you to 9.2.6
  • Get the dtb.img from the post linked below, do not use the included one, it will result in a black screen
  • For DVB to work install the crazycat drivers from the “services” addons (did not try media build)

On my X96 Air box on startup the display is being forced into 3D mode (projector) unlike with 9.2.6 which was fine. Can this be disabled?

I guess I know what I’m doing when I get home.

Thanks for getting this going. :grinning:

Can I update from 9.2.6 or must I do a clean install (because its a major version release)? Might be worth adding to the announcement to avoid a flood of questions.

[I see from previous replies here that I can update. Updated my Odroid N2 with no issues!]

Both methods are possible, clean install is preferred.
Kodi Leia addons aren’t compatible with Kodi Matrix.

Sorry, can you tell what versions you have? In my case, both YouTube and Netflix don’t work anymore

You need the matrix netflix repo and for youtube you may have to use the devel repo (for youtube you can check the kodi forum). Both work here.
