17.3 not doing anything

10 posts in this topic

I downloaded 17.3 from 16.1 tonight. What ever option I choose in the beast, I just get the spinning beast head and red circle. Round and round and round and round forever. I get all the menus but no channels come up. When I check the settings it says my internet is busy. I have checked the internet is working, and the settings on my tv are connected to the internet (as I just checked YouTube). For some reason the beast cannot connect. Does anyone know why? Could the server be down due to high traffic thanks to the essential security upgrade? Any help appreciated.

@Miximallian¬†hi! What device are you using? I believe the issue is you went from 16.1 to 17.3 & need to install beast 17.3. Either way‚ėļÔłŹ ‚¨áÔłŹ

We should do a fresh start & install beast again. Follow this to do so, quick & easy. Please follow the fresh start quick video below the link here, then click link for latest beast install instructions (having trouble switching the order postedūü§¶ūüŹľ‚Äć‚ôÄÔłŹūüėā) due to addons finding new homes there will be a new update with all addons in a few days as well, so keep an eye out. If you need assistance or an install video please let me know! Thanks! Sarah

I have had Kodi 17.3 and the Beast new June 7th  soft update running for a few days now and it has been working satisfactory but this evening when I went into Kodi it is as Miximallian says, it does nothing other than the spinning head and red circle. It doesn't seem to make any difference what you go to all you get is the spinning head and red circle but nothing comes up. I am using my HP Pavillion laptop with Windows 10.

Sorry, never mind it has started working again. Don't know what it was but I closed and re-opened Kodi and it started working. My bad.

Hi @LHuck glad it's resolved. Anytime this sort of thing happens I recommend the following:

1) clear cache, purge packages & thumbnails

2) force close kodi

3) restart device or simply unplug & plug back in

also remember to clear cache, purge packages at least 1-2 times a week! This is very important! You can do it daily if you like, but once a week is crucial. ‚ėļÔłŹ

Thanks! Sarah

Hi guys, my version did start working after I had forced kodi to close a couple of times. Strange. 

I don't know if it's the beast, the kodi, or links are just down but some things are hit and miss. Uktvturks is not working at all. Zen is hit and miss. Just 2 examples from top of my head. 

It might just be a case that the tv companies / government / ISP's are starting to get cute with us all???

Sorry @Sarah Barker I forgot to say my device is a Sony smart Android tv. So I download kodi straight onto my tv from the google play store. Unfortunately the google play store now only makes the latest kodi version available to download. I have 16.1 on a memory stick which i can always fall back onto.

@Miximallian¬†actually it's not strange at all that it worked after you force closed, you really need to reboot after force closing. If google play store has the latest version 17.3, I don't think¬†you can go back to 16.1 in the play store through memory stick on tv, & even if you did you would have to wipe data & add new repositories‚¨áÔłŹ

Also, when you install kodi from the playstore, no 3rd party addons come with it. Kodi does not provide any content. Addons like U.K. Turk and numerous others aren't working for you because the versions of their addons (called repositories, most likely from the wizard/build you used to install the 3rd party addons) they've all changed since Dish Network sued zemtv & tv addons May 30, & tva removed most 3rd party addons of their library. 

Zen is gone & has been replaced by Elysium, new repo, new name. 

You need to fresh start, and install the correct repositories. A build is the best way to do that. If you don't know which you have, open your kodi and take a picture and post here, I can tell you how to proceed. It has nothing to do with kodi Krypton 17 (or jarvis) & everything to do with all changed lately 

Thanks, Sarah

All too frequently now I am getting the continuous spinning head. The system summary info says internet is busy, cpu temp busy, etc etc, everything giving any info about my system is 'busy'! @Sarah Barker , forcing kodi to close doesn't always fix the problem. Why is it doing this? @LHuck was getting this earlier in the thread but i can read of no other related issues. 

I have kodi 17.3 krypton June 20th update.
