Kodi has stopped responding - no help after clearing cache etc

11 posts in this topic

I was using the beast TV build ony Android box for nearly a month when all of a sudden it's not working anymore. I can't run kodi, if I'm lucky it'll reach the beast logo and then show that kodi isn't responding or just take me back to the home screen

I followed advice from another thread here by forcing stop, clearing cache and then restarting the Android box. This didn't help. My only work around was to clear all data from kodi, redownload the build and install it again. 

This then works for a good few days and then the issue crops up again. I'm not sure why the build works fine for a while then needs reinstalling. 

 

Any suggestions?

Hi no its not the build playing up its a great build but if you run it on for ex android 6 then it will crash on some boxes due to a setting in hardware accelarataion But in the latest Beast build I have the one from the 29th of december I can not access the advanced settings in the menu of settings so that is a bit of a pain I can not enjoy the build I like the most as I can not access my vide/accelerations settings.

 

Have you got any advice on thisifso I think many of us will have the solution of crashing tv boxes fixed.

Thanks for the reply, I havent played around with the actual skin yet so I might find a solution there, some other builds still have the choice of changing system settings to advanced at the bottom of the system menu. what people /users need to do is to go in to video and from there go down and change settings level to advanced, now they will see accelerations and they should  scroll down to that and to the right they will see three dots for allow hardware acceleration, they should klick on the first one of the three the Amcodec to disactivate  it. Then go out of systems, now they cn try to run a movie close it down and try another movie now Kodi should not stop working, this seems to be in issue on systems running android 6. I have had no issues any more with crashing kodi IE kodi stopped working and I had to go in again afer watching a movie or something else. So hopefully its just the skin that needs the ad of the line at the bottom of system settings ( I think) havent tinkered around in years with rogramming so very rusty :) being nearly 60 and soon a grandma its a newfound hobby this thing with Kodi. great work with the build.

Running Kodi on an T95ZPlus and soon on an Nvidia Shield

Thanks for reading this post really appreciate the help. So I use a device called Trongle (top result on Amazon uk). 

Model: s1 pro

Version 6.0.1

Think it's slightly less than 1gb ram. 

I agree that it's to do with the hardware acceleration and normally in the advanced setting you can disable the first option and it works fine. However my issue is that it doesn't even make it that far before it just takes me back to the homescreen of my device. I normally see the beast logo and then I end up back at the home screen. 

I've noticed however that other builds work - royalist seems fine but I can't seem to seek/scrub through videos so end up having use the fast forward function which can be tedious (is there a work around for that?). But to be honest I can't exactly tell what the difference is between the builds asides from a few layouts i.e. Beast TV has more live TV stuff? What does encore have? With Spartan whats different with that build?

Ive noticed that the other builds seem stable but was hoping to stick with beast TV as it's preferable with its easy to access sports channels. 

Thanks.

Hi Guys,

To be honest you are correct all the builds really do the same job, it's that our different builds have different layouts and Addons built into them so really it all depends on your tastes. Yes the TV build is good for sports but always remember this is free IPTV scrapes hence all these are obviouslly hit and miss. I basically would use any of the builds as long as you got Exodus thats all your really needs and sports devil.

I agree with Mixdoctors post and most builds do the same thing its just what we like that makes a difference and what we want to be able to run on our devices I for one like the Beast because its fast and a good build, but I run it on a 2 Gb Ram and that works fine,I do have a smaller MKIII with 1Gb Ram and allthough I could run the beast on that it gets a bit much for the poor stic

 

You could try to change both the first and the last setting in accelaration to of just leaving the mddle one on.

But I would probably either chose a light build or just run a clean kodi and install the repositories you want for the sports channels you like.

Totally agree.

Also just like to addd I have run and tested every build on a fire stick and I can honestly say they all run well with no problems at all. So to those of you that think a Fire Stick wont be fast enough or can't stream well you are totally wrong lol. I also test on a Nvidia Shield and. MI Box with same results but must admit. the Nvidia runs like lightning lol
