Kodi crashes on Recalbox 7 while watching movies

  • Hi,

    I have installed Recalbox 7 on a rpi2. It works fine.
    However, I have some issues with Kodi. For some reasons, it often crashes while watching movies: the movies are stopped, I get a black screen and then the recalbox screen. It doesn't even remember where it crashes, so I have to manually forward the movie I was watching. I need to say that it appears with any movie, so it is not related to a corrupted file.
    I've tried to check Kodi logs but I don't see much things in it.

    Any ideas how I could debug this? Or where it could comes from?

  • I've checked


    Here is what I read

    At that moment there is nothing left. Now, I know that the film crashed around 9:05 pm.

    If I check:


    I get:

    This shows that around 21:05 I restarted kodi. The rest of the file shows no error.

    I don't know where to look the error for...
