Known Issues

The following is a short list of known issues that resellers, installers, and end users should be aware of with regard to XBMC / Kodi, especially in comparison to Dune HD media players.  Possible workarounds are also mentioned for each issue in the list below.

  • Native Blu-ray Java / BD-J menus do not work.
    • XBMC treats these titles as straight M2TS files / shows a number of playlists for play-back, similar to the "Play Lite" function on Dune HD players. 

  • "SpeedMenu" may or may not work
    • Previous versions of Kodi/XBMC releases used to work, but not guaranteed

  • "Resume to last location" for movies does not work. A black screen is encountered.
    • Simply start playback from the beginning instead of last stop point, and use the chapter / skip forward buttons.

  • Simultaneous audio / video outputs are not available.
    • Note: Simultaneous AV outputs can be emulated by splitting the digital AV signal into (2) legs, then converting the second 'leg' into the desired / alternate format.

  • Forced Subtitles - works on some titles, not all.
    • Subtitles can be always be manually enabled via remote controls

  • During BD playback of some (not all) titles, a slight 2-3 second video delay may occur during video playback at random intervals.
    • This occurs on titles with playlist obfuscation or other mechanisms.

  • Library updates occur at a scheduled interval, about once an hour
    • A newly copied title onto a LiivNAS can be forcibly updated if it does not appear quickly enough

  • 24Hz / Frame rate switching is not supported
    • Only the standard refresh rate (60Hz) is supported.

  • 3D is not supported / tested
    • LiivStreamer series, for the moment, officially supports 2D content only.  

For the most seamless Movies experience, without any need for XBMC's advanced features, including but not limited to: music, photos, videos, or online content, please consider purchasing our Dune HD series of products as an alternative.
