HiMedia Q10 Pro, Q5 Pro / Re: Storing timecode for partially watched movies
« on: September 29, 2017, 04:05:11 PM »
Since I am going to do a full reset of the box, I would like to know if it has been confirmed to be a NFS bug.
I have changed to Samba just to for this issue, as it is really annoying.

I'm planning a reset and would rather "go NFS" since the user right is much easier to handle.
And also, is this behaviour registered as a bug at all?

Sounds good to me.
Although I am not totally convinced it is that simple.
I mean, why should this feature depend on the protocol (NFS or Samba) if the timestamps are stored locally on my Q5?

The timestamps work (90 %) on NFS if you don't reboot the Q5.
After a reboot all timestamps er wiped clean.

Actually, I found that post first.
But all menu items in Imprex menu is locked.

The way to disable imprex it to:
- In advances HiMedia menu set output to SDR only
- Start a random movie and disable Imprex.
- In HiMedia advanced meny set output to Automatic (HDR/SDR)

Would have been nice if one could just disable Imprex in the HiMedia menu!

Well, never mind - Google is (mostly) your friend.

But, would somebody please explain the logic in how to disable Imprex.
It would have been much more easy to just make it possible in the "Advanced Options" menu.

"Is not operational, because current HDR mode is not SDR"
That is the feedback I get, when I try to change any setting in the Imprex menu.

The material I am watching is not HDR (it is SDR 720p)

How does one bypass this lock?

Okay, so the keyword is NFS or Samba shares.

I use NFS, so if I changed to Samba shares it would work?

Was afraid that someone might say that.

I had a bad (actually catastrofic) incident where I thought I said yes to deleting the media libary index and instead I had acknoledge to delete all my media files. You don't want to do that mistage again  :o

May be I should try once more and be really sure what I accept.

HiMedia Q10 Pro, Q5 Pro / Storing timecode for partially watched movies
« on: August 23, 2017, 03:35:02 PM »

What I am trying to figure out is, where are those timecodes stored?

Normally they are remembered and the movie starts where I left it.
If I reboot the box, then all traces of the timecodes are gone.
Meaning all partially watched movies and TV-series start from the beginning.
Are they supposed to be stored in the media library for the individual file or what?

All my media is stored on a NAS and the mediabox has only read access (not write).
Is that a problem?

It is annoying to loose all the timecodes when the box freezes (and it does :-))

.SRT encoding is ANSI
Normally I keep subtitles to "Auto" in the settings.


Autorecognition still not working
Line spacing still poorly implemented
Line tags like italic and bold not working but at least the tags (like <i>) are not displayed now
Too short time difference bug is fixed

They are on my Q5  :(
Not the "tags on" part  <i> but only the "Tags off" part </i> is visible.


So we still have a couple of bugs regarding subtitles, like this:;topicseen#msg16440.

My two questions: is automatic subtitle encodig recognition issue resolved (or at least eased) in 2.0.4? And is the issue with <i>italic character lines like this</i> still present in 2.0.4?

Could someone check, please?!

If these aren't fixed, than take these as a reminder, thank you!


Automatic encoding of subtitles is not completely fixed.

The missing functionallity regarding tagging of subtitles still manage to surprise me.
I mean, how hard can it be?
They should at least remove "</i>" since they already remove "<i>".
I would of cause prefer the full functionallity.

Method 1 (using Q5/Q10 Pro)

- Install a file manager app like 'total commander' (my current favourite).
- Navigate to root/sdcard/Android/data/org.xbmc.kodi/files/.kodi/userdata/
- Edit playercorefactory.xml (total commander has a built in file editor)

For both methods, to stop NFS shares playing through Kodi internal player you should remove 'nfs|' from playercorefactory.


Code: [Select]
<rule protocols="nfs|http|rtmp|sop" player="VideoPlayer" /> <!--all nfs-->

Code: [Select]
<rule protocols="http|rtmp|sop" player="VideoPlayer" /> <!--all nfs-->

Thanks, it worked!

I have observed a strange problem with .SRT subtitles, maybe not on all mediatypes..
Now, we don't have the old problem, with subtitles that have problematic timing not being shown.
The issue that I have observed is more like the opposite, the subtitle line is being shown until the next line is due.
It looks somewhat distracting  :)

I can confirm this problem:
    Via samba - same share - wrapper is default.
    Via NFS - same share- kodi player is default.
    What i'm doing wrong?

So the solution seems to be:
   Check your playercorefactory.xml.
   In the past release there was a stupid line forcing nfs to go to Kodi
   <rule protocols="nfs|http|rtmp|sop" player="VideoPlayer" /> <!--all nfs-->

   I remove it and I had no problems for the past 2 months. Maybe, for some unexplained reason, Himedia choose to keep it in the new release. With no   explanation of the reason, this looks just stupid from Himedia.

How do I get to edit "playercorefactory.xml" - maybe a noobie question, but I really don't want to mess with SSH anything similar.

it's Monday :-)

Please, bring us the Q5 PRO version of 2.0.4

HiMedia say tomorrow (11-JUL).

Sorry for this news.

This is unbelievable, really.

I mean, I can somehow understand why the core Q10 took months.
But now, they only have to remove to HDD interface from the Q10, how can that takes days to do?
