Kodi don't start

Post by przemko »

Hello, I install Kodi on my Rpi4 where I have already Nextcloud and Emby server installed. I set Kodi to autostart but when I connect Rpi4 to TV there's terminal. I click Kodi on that menu.
Edit. OK I set Dietpi user not root. It works on root.

Hi,

I honestly did not understood your question. If you select Kodi as autostart, you would need to reboot your system to have Kodi launched during boot. Usually you should see on your TV screen the boot process

yes that's an actual behavior that auto start of applications works with root user only. It might change on a later version.

There is a component missing. Try following

Code: Select all

dietpi-software install 6
