After scraping movies in Kodi, Kodi doesn't work and no network connectivity



  • Hi all- I found this solution to my problem, and would like to share it. In Kodi, I scraped my movie collection, and then Kodi wouldn't start, and the RPI wouldn't get an IP address via DHCP. It looks like the thumbnails that were generated by scraping the movies filled up a partition on the SD card. To fix, I reset the Recalbox config (press shift at bootup), and then via SSH made the following changes. edited <span style="color: #222222; font-family: -apple-system, 'San Francisco Display', 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;">/root/.kodi/userdata/advancedsettings.xml </span> added the following between the <advancedsettings> tags- <pathsubstitution> <substitute> <from>special://profile/Thumbnails/</from> <to>/recalbox/share/.kodi/Thumbnails/</to> </substitute> </pathsubstitution> this forces Kodi to put the thumbnails on the "storage" space of the card.



  • Before you tried this fix did your storage show it was full? (In emulation station under system -->storage).
