Gecko rebooting
Since today my Gecko suddenly reboots every 15 seconds or so. I have changed nothing in the settings apart from setting the framerate sync to "open". What the hell is wrong with this thing?

So far the Gecko has been a pretty big disappointment. Every time I get some hope that it wasn't a mistake buying this, something worse pops up.

Since 30 minutes I have exactly the same... Nothin changed..Sad
When I disconnect network the system is stable, when I reconnect the system reboots again.

RE: Gecko rebooting
Are you all on the latest firmware?
Is the problem gone when you disconnect the network cable?
Are you using a Power over Ethernet router or switch?
is the Gecko power supply hot?
what date was the Gecko shipped to you and where did you buy?
There was a bad batch of power supplies in the first shipments that should have been replaced by shipping a new one to each customer.
let's get this sorted.

Some focus on problems and faults others on solutions and success... no question who is the happy one.

Chameleon 16GB SD 32GB micro SD <-->HDMIv1.3<-->Onkyo TX-NR1010<-->HDMIv1.3<-->Panasonic TX-P46S10 + 6 Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
10 NTFS 2TB USB drives on 3 hubs attached to a A400, 2 Seagate blackarmour NAS 3TB, 2 Seagate Central NAS 4TB.

RE: Gecko rebooting
* Yes latest fw
* Yes network seems to cause reboot
* No, normal Lan
* First batch I think, but no reboots before
* I think this no coincidence... 3 users same errors at the almost the same time.
Open hour should know where to look when they read this...

Did you buy online from Openhour website and you did not receive a new power supply?
what was your shipping date?

RE: Gecko rebooting
Hello

I have the same problem. Gecko reboots every 15-60s
I try some test:

Boot Gecko without network connection = OK
Boot Gecko with network connection but without internet access = OK
Boot Gecko with Wi-Fi connection but without internet access = OK
Boot Gecko with network connection but without internet access. And after activate internet modem on the network= OK


Boot Gecko with network connection and internet = Reboot every time
Boot Gecko with Wi-Fi connection and internet = Reboot every time

The problem this the boot with internet

A+
David

RE: Gecko rebooting
Now I did have a change of PSU and have not noticed anything since updating the firmware. In fact I have moved the Gecko into the lounge now as its been rock solid and meets the Mrs acceptability criterium.

I will move it back and try again however I'm presently testing another media player for userapps in its place.

So its either the PSU or less likely the internet. Keep finding/testing guys 'me too' posts do nowt to help. Seems very strange that 3 seem to have gone at the same time.

If you have a vten or OHC try its PSU as they are inter changeable. The A400 not. The OH products are also on the same IR channel, so OHC remote works on the Gecko and vice versa. So you cannot have both in the same room.

OHC > HDMI > TV (Panasonic 42G20)
Downmix stereo using standard Kodi(MC) 15.2 no hware/acc OK
Downmix stereo 1.0.40/RK Kodi(RKlib) 15.2 infrequent audio gaps hware/acc OK

No DTS downmix available for inbuilt eMC player

Gecko> HDMI > TV (Panasonic 42G20)
Downmix stereo using Gecko Kodi 15.0 OK
Downmix using inbuilt MediaCentre OK

RE: Gecko rebooting
It could be anything? Could it have been a Kodi update? Could it have been a Google Play update? Could it have been an APP? Could it be something in the firmware calling home for an update check and not getting a reply and getting hungup?

Conspiracy theories will abound until we know.
