Since the upgrade of my Kodi instance from version 17.6 to current Kodi 18 “Leia” last week, my openHAB installation does not communicate with it anymore. So far, I had successfully used a setup as described in this post including light control. In my setup I have used a Kodi thing installed via Paper UI but it seems to have stopped working after the Kodi upgrade.
- openHAB 2.4
- Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+
- current openHABian
- Amazon FireTV 1st generation
What I did to solve it:
- Uninstalled and reinstalled Kodi binding => no success
- Deleted and recreated Kodi thing via Paper UI => no success
- Uninstalled Kodi thing and defined a Kodi thing in a .things file according to the binding documentation => no success
The events log keeps reporting a communication error. Now my fear is that the upgrade of Kodi itself broke the setup, i.e. the current binding does not work with Kodi v18. Are there any experiences with this issue out there?
