Covenant - Slow loading directory
« on: November 09, 2017, 01:53:53 am »
Hello!

Here's hoping someone can help me out. I'm having trouble with Covenant after a reinstall of Kodi/Covenant. Loading the movie categories works as normal, incredibly fast, but once I get to anything specific IE, In theaters or horror, it takes about 3 minutes to load up the movie/show list. When it does load and I select a movie, it hangs at "Preparing sources" for another 4 minutes or so. Any ideas? I've cleared the cache, checked my connection (very strong/ 70Mbps), checked firewall settings, and made sure everything is up-to-date. I am about ready to chuck this firestick out the window  ::)

Covenant tools, clear providers, clear cache

Thanks for the help! I tried that again today but the issue still persists. No improvement yet.

What version of kodi? What source did you use for Covenant?

I'm having the same issue.  I've not seen the "Preparing sources" message before, it just started doing that.  I don't think it is a Covenant issue - I reverted back to a previous version and still had the problem.  This may have started a(for me) after the UrlResolver update early this morning - I'm investigating now.  Presently, this is absolutely unacceptable, it takes about 5-10 minutes just to get the sources for one episode and I d/l a lot of shows. :(

Not URLResolver.  I uninstalled BoB Unleashed and it sped my Kodi response time back to normal.  I had noticed a lot of activity with this addon that made my system very sluggish.  It may have been something creeping up like a bloated cache, but I do not plan on reinstalling since I rarely used it anyway.  It was also very annoying to have it update its metadata even when a different addon was running.  The "Processing Sources" dialog has disappeared or is very quickly dismissed and the sources progress dialog comes up like it used to. :)

Bob unleashed was having some problems along with Real-Debrid and a bunch of other addons when that European server crashed. Strange that it affected other addons, seems like what you said about the cache is more legit

I know Covenant was having some issues last week, thats why i stopped using it in the meantime. Hope they can update a fix soon.  But people, there are few other great video add-onds out there. If one is not working to the next one on your list. Cheers!
