THE USE OF PM'S (private Messages) TO STAFF ON THIS FORUM

1 post in this topic

HELLO EVERYBODY,

Over the past week I have had a number of private messages asking me to help. I personally feel this is not fair on other members as the staff on this forum are here to help everybody when we can.

Say you have a problem that other members are also having, then obviously it's best to post your problem in the relevant sections of the forum so others can join in the discussion as well as other members that may be having the same problems can also follow, hence if we solve your problem in a PM the others that may be having the same problem won't be able to see this.

If we feel your discussion is best to be dealt with in a PM then we will contact you, so please do not use PM's for support.

PLEASE REMEMBER The staff on here help you all in their spare time (we do this for love :)) hence it may be a couple of days during the summer months for your thread to get a reply but when we do have time we all look at the new posts and help if we can.

Some members of staff do offer one to one support for problems that you may be having that whatever we advise we can't get to the bottom of it. When a situation like this happens we will contact you on a pm.

@Tech Timeruuu offers help via TeamViewer and myself will offer help via Apple Face Time.

So PLEASE members post your problem in the relevant t sections in the forum and not PM the forum staff if you don't mind.

Thanks for taking time to read this post.

      Hi all,

      It's been a while since I've needed Kodi help and in this time numerous sources have shut down and so I'm a bit lost with getting sorted. 

      | have an android 5x box with Krypton 17.3 (it was the latest build at the time). I installed Smash and Colossus and had just a couple of working video add-ons (Covenant and BoB) as 1080 Movies and 1 Channel didn't work, Gurzil closed down and I had no link to other sources. I didn't care as Covenant was my goto source.

      Things have slowly gotten worse but have been unable to update Smash because it too has bitten the dust and so I need your help please.

      Here's what's happened in chronological order:
      1. When all was ok: Loads of streams, with about 5-10 1080 and 4k streams leading the way, lots of streams including gvideo
      2. Number of 1080 and 4k sources dropped - but still lots of 720 & SD streams
      3. Still lots of streams but the choice had gone - now they were all primewire or watchmovies
      4. Streams dwindled to just 2 or 3  - and always cmovies and estream - often not playing but returning: "no stream available' even for mega-popular shows & films
      5. Most of the time the cmovies & estream TV streams would only pay the pilot no matter which episode you clicked on
      6. This pask week, more streams show in searches but only ever one 1080, one 720,  and 99% are from the same source, ie: primewire
      7. Very slow Kodi. Not just playing streams but also when searching for streams (that bit where you get the pop up asking you to pair your devices)

      All this happened despite haaving 75mb DL and running VPN. 
      Does all this sound familiar? Is it due to the crackdown on streaming? What do I do now - where do I go - which repos and builds - do I upload to latest Krypton or is there a new build in town?


      Thx

      A Big HELLO to all our members on this marvelious World Wide Forum,
       
      We are all here for help and support and obviously news about our hobby and interests and the Staff and Members are all here to share our expertise and knowledge when our members have problems and we all try to help and get you all up and running as quickly as possible. 
       
      The main problem with this is some of our members are not helping themselves. Yes, we understand if you got a problem you would like speedy results and answers but time after time we see the same questions like “Help pin wont work” or “Spartan wizard keeps asking me to log on” etc.
      In reply to questions like that we ask “what are you trying to install in on?” or “when do you get this error?” etc. Now you can obviously see that this is wasting time on your behalf and you are still stuck and having to reply with the relevant information, hence talking up more time to get you up and running when we want to get you running as soon as possible as thats what the forum is about.
       
      So members please think when posting problems to be solved and take a quick look through this checklist below as the more information you can give us the quicker we can try to resolve your problems and get you up and running.
       
      The very, very first thing to check is your ISP is not blocking you in any way, now you say well it did work last week but please remember ISP’s update numerous times a day so what may have worked last week may not work this week so you need to disable some settings to prevent this from happening. To stop your ISP blocking software please CLICK HERE  This post tells you how to adjust your settings on Various ISP’s and trust me it resolves at least 60% of problems. What are you trying to install? (Kodi, The Beast, Spartan Wizard etc ) What are you trying to install onto?  ( Device you are trying to update/get working ) Method of installing? ES File Explorer or File Manager etc. Let us know how far you are getting until you run into problems. The problem you are having and any error messages. Always try and give us a brief description and order of what you are doing until you get to the point where you are having your problem. Please do not post multiple posts on the same issue as it will get deleted and a warning will be issued NO troubleshooting in pm or by mail as it does not benefit others with the same issue   
      So a typical question “Help I can't install the Beast wizard !” ( does not tell us a lot does it ) 
       
      If it looks something like "Help I am trying to install The Beast Wizard from the beast site site on my Fire Stick using File Manager and I keep getting an error saying the link cannot be resolved".
       
      This straight away tells us what we need to know that you're using a Fire Stick and trying to install and download the Wizard from the beast website using the file manager hence we can now help you straight away without asking you what are you installing on etc saving you a lot of time and frustration and getting you going a lot quicker.
       
      Anyway I hope this post explains that the more information you can give us the quicker the members and staff can get you up and running.
       
      If I have missed anything out or anybody thinks something should be added to this post please leave a comment by clicking HERE

      By the way my answer to the example problem above is item number 1 ( ISP Blocking ) as this can be caused by your ISP blocking software also make sure you type the link correctly 
       
      Anyway I hope this post explains that the more information you can give us the quicker the members and staff can get you up and running.

      Hey!
         I was using Kodi 16 for a while but recently I thought it is a good idea to install Kodi 17.3.  So I have installed Kodi 17.3 and I used smash repo to download correctly Exodus! I didn't have any problems while I was using Kodi 16 but since I downloaded Kodi 17.3 I realiszed some strange and annoying interactions:
      1) I am using Viber for Desktop Computers, and every time I get a message at viber while I am watching series, kodi freezes! By the way, after of some search I found out that the notification message is responsible for that, no the sound!
      2)  So I disabled the notifications for messages (http://prntscr.com/fy1gbq) but I found another problem. When I change screen (using alt + tab) kodi pauses, and it doesn't play at the background, but some times I need it to play at the background because I may listen the series' action while I am doing something else!
      3) The last one is that also when I change screen while I am watching series, and the come back to kodi, the audio resume but the screen stays black for a while!
      // I am sorry about my english

      I would appreciate any help! 
      Thank you in advance!
