CoreELEC 20.0 Nexus aml-vnc default password no longer authenticates

Hi all - I recently upgraded from CoreELEC 19.5 to 20.0. The aml-vnc addon no longer allows me to authenticate using RealVNC or any other VNC client for that matter.

The password is unchanged looking at /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/service.aml-vnc/settings.xml

RealVNC gives me a ‘Password check failed’ when attempting to authenticate. I have tried setting an alternative password and restarting the aml-vnc service to no avail.

Any ideas what changed?

Kind Regards


Update to latest nightly where addon is fixed or install this version manually.

After upgrading from 19.5 to 20.0 (S905X3, ng), aml-vnc did NOT work.

I tried to install manually this:

And, only upgrading the addon, it still did NOT work.

Then, I removed the add-on and its settings, and after that, I installed:

After that I configured the amlc-vnc add-on (changed default port, changed password using the add-on settings interface, etc.), and, after deactivate - activade the add-on, it works perfectly well with edited port and password.
But… it seems that it is necessary to remove the “old” add-on (and perhaps its settings) first.

Thanks again, @vpeter , and kind regards
