The box worked great in the last weeks with the autostart.sh alternative. I had no real reason to modify it again. The situation I had while having that error I reported in this topic, was that even after starting up and run in kodi, the time was not set. It was saying 00.00 with a year in the 90’s somewhere. I think that means, that even in kodi it couldn’t pull the right time. Would a delay really help in those circumstances?
“…And Kodi/CE on the other hand doesn’t know about your OpenVPN, because it isn’t configured as a Kodi addon.…”
Relkai, everybody has a right for an opinion. Mine is that a vpn connection is an o.s. job, not a kodi job. Kodi is the application. I understand the kodi openvpn app is comfortable for some using all kinds of american vpn providers, the app even works as a commercial stimulation to sign up for those vpn providers for new users. However, it doesn’t handle all available providers during my experiments. Specially of those in europe, where the good vpn providers are, outside the world of NSA and PRISM.
Further about the recent coreelec distribution;
When I installed coreelec first time, I had to improvise many things. For example, My remote controller didn’t work, I had to configure each button for it manually using a manual. I had to play around with several images before finding the right one. I had to use many different sources on the net before understanding how to install in correctly.
Later I had problems with several apps, I used before, but not compatible in kodi 18.
Why is it it is all that hard.?
I do like the improved pvr though. It gives me the time how long before a program will finish. Changing channels seem to work faster. These are good improvements.
Thanks for your time.
