Kodi 18.9 using NFS shares

  • Hi,

    I updated OMV5 to 5.6.0.1 running Debian 5.10.0-0.bpo3.rmd64 kernel. Now my kodi while using NFS shares does not stream correctly (looks like having distortions, jumps stream forward, hung up). If and when I change shares to SMB (OMV5 SMB/CIFS shares) everything works just great. Streaming from OMV5 through NFS shares also worked fine under Debian 4.19.0.5.amd64 kernel (part of OMV5.0.5 installation CD). Any idea?.

  • More likely caused by the 5.10 kernel. I use nfs with kodi but I am using the proxmox kernel. Much better choice in my opinion. The 5.10 kernel rollout has not been very good so far.

  • Thanks for your quick response. I also noticed that when I switched to proxmox everything worked fine. My issue is that I use MariaDB (mysql daemon) with 5 Kodi installations. I would need to rework both Video and Music databases going back to NFS as I had to do moving to SMB due to 5.10 kernel debacle. I guess it is time to bite the bullet. Thanks again.

    I had the same issue over the weekend, complete with using MariaDB and multiple Kodi locations. My temporary solution was to use path substitution in Kodi. It's a messy fix, but with advancedsettings.xml syncing I set up years ago, it was a quick band-aid to quiet my family down. After my family was in bed I further investigated and rolled back the kernel in OMV to 5.9.0-0.bpo.5-amd64 to test my theory it had to do with the kernel update. When I confirmed it was, I left it with the old kernel and went to bed intending to post my findings today. Looks like you beat me to it.

  • Hi,Thanks. Good points. My advancesetting.xml is working fine connecting Kodi installs to MariaDB. The problem, for me, is that I already went through configuring sources (SMB) in Kodi and rebuilding Databases in MariaDB. I have a LOT of customization's in Kodi that are translated into the database. Now, to go back to NFS shortcut/exports sources I will have to redo it again on one install. Once that is done then all other installs will take it. So, I guess it is one of those things; stay with SMB shares or spend few hours and convert back to NFS with different kernel that works, i.e 5.9 or portmox. What is, really, holding me is a question as to will the portmox kernel and other OMV5 will get updates.

  • I can confirm that 5.10 kernel is the culprit with Kodi 18.9. Rolled back kernel to 5.9.0-0.bpo.5-amd64 and all is well. Running an HP minitower with intel i5 cpu and twin 10tb Seagate IronWolf Pro’s non raid NFS shares for video media.
