Kodi freezes on DVBlink backup

Postby BartZorn » Wed Feb 24, 2016 11:09 am

Take the following scenario:

Watching a channel on TV. From the DVBlink management web interface (on an other PC) issue a backup command. At that moment Kodi freezes. I cancel the download of the backup, but Kodi does not resume. It does not respond to any remote or keyboard command. The only thing that works is CTRL-ALT-DEL. Starting the task manager from there gives a black screen with a task bar. No visible mouse pointer, no task manager window.

So what can you do? I couldn't think of anything else but restart the PC.

It seems to that there is something wrong with the communication between DVBlink and Kodi. If DVBlink backup needs exclusive control than I think it would be a good idea to add a confirmation request to the user interface before the actual backup operation starts.

But on the other hand, Kodi does not react nicely on DVBlink freezing up. At least, I assume that that is what happens, from Kodi's point of view.

I will post this both on the DVBlogic forum and the Kodi forum.
The Kodi log file has grown to 41 MB so it it not useful to upload it.

During making a backup file of the DVBLink settings - dvblink server breaks all streams/threads (it is needed to finish making the backup).
But the kodi behaviour is not so good, i guess this issue should not be related to the DVBLink server, but to the Kodi side ( how Kodi handle with this)
