RC 9.0 - Problems with Windows filenames that contain Umlauts

30 August 2023 - 11:16

With RC9.0, Windows filenames that contain special characters, like umlauts, cause green screen.

For example, if you try to view an image named M├╝nchen.jpg from a USB storage, PicturePlayer will crash.
Similar, when trying to play media files with this kind of filenames.

It seems, there is filename decoding problem...


PS. Release 8.3 is not affected.

MediaScanner - how to disable pop-up?

23 August 2023 - 16:45

I am using a Samsung Photo Frame as LCD4Linux display. It's connected to the USB port of the box.

Every time I turn the display on, the MediaScanner window pops up on TV. Is there an option to supress this?

HdmiCEC crash - RC 9.0

23 August 2023 - 13:02

I am currently on RC 9.0. Sometimes, the Plugin Menu displays this message:


Some plugins are not available:
SystemPlugins/HdmiCEC ('utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xff in position 0: invalid start byte)


I tried to reproduce it. It seems to happen, when I turn on the box and the TV-set from deep stand-by. (first the box, then the TV-set)


    My HDMI-CEC settings are:

Enabled                         yes
Put TV in standby               yes
Wakeup TV from standby          yes
Wakeup command for TV           Image View On
Regard deep standby as standby  Yes
Switch TV to correct input      yes

    All other options are no/Disabled. And there is nothing else connected to the HDMI ports, just the box and the TV.

SHOUTcast crashes when trying to record

SHOUTcast crashes when trying to record. (PLi 9.0 RC)

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/enigma2/python/Plugins/Extensions/SHOUTcast/plugin.py", line 405, in streamripperDataAvail
TypeError: a bytes-like object is required, not 'str'

Instant recording (with custom duration) faulty in nightly build

12 August 2023 - 09:38

The instant recording, where you can enter the duration in minutes, seems faulty in the nightly build. It ignores the input.

Besides that, there's an issue with the Cancel button.


This is what it looks like:

Add a recording (enter recording duration)
 - Instead of the custom duration, the recording lasts until the end of the current event. [bug present in nightly build only]
 - Buttons [Cancel] and [OK] are missing on this screen. [Release 8.3 is also affected]
 - Pressing Cancel/Exit activates recording [Release 8.3 also affected]

Add a recording (enter recording endtime)
 - Pressing "Cancel" starts recording, same fault as above
