Is it possible to downgrade to Jarvis over ssh without flash drive?

I just updated OSMC to the latest version. Mostly it has been very pleasant until I played a 1080 movie when the motion was jerky. I guess that is what this thread is about.

I understand the sentiment to move on to fresh hardware but I am one of them CRT folk with a SCART S-Video input and I cannot find a Kodi box with that output.
I tried a modern 4 Core Android TV box going through an HMDI to S-Video/CVBS converter but the results are disappointing. Video motion is jerky even though navigation is rapid. Colour rendition has a bad hue and detail is lost.

The ATV1 box produces better results having been configured to output S-Video even though it navigates slowly.

Perhaps I need to go back to the last release until Krypton is ready.

Cheers for the great work Sam

You will have to do that! There will be no more updates, so Crystal HD support for Krypton will not come.

Oh, I see. Thanks for telling me.
From the thread, I assume the January build was the last one?
OSMC_TGT_appletv_20170129-HDD.img
I made a USB patch stick but it is not installing automatically.

Do you know if I have to use a different procedure to downgrade?

Yes

You would need to use the normal installation procedure. This will not be a downgrade but a clean reinstall of the January Image

I tried making a USB patch stick for a fresh install but it is not working.

So I assume I have to install via terminal. I am just trying to figure out the text.

I tried this:
sudo apt-get install OSMC_TGT_appletv_20170129-HDD.img
but it is wrong.

Any clues for the correct name of the file on the server?

As mentioned this is the wrong approach! This is not a patch or down/upgrade. Just follow the “normal” installation procedure using the installer on your PC/MAC to create a installation medium which you than need to boot from.

I do understand what you are saying. I have been trying to do a clean install of the January version using the “normal” procedure but it is still stuck on Krypton 17.4.

First using a Mac then a PC to make a USB “patchstick” or installer stick.

When I upgrading to Krypton I had problems with the install. Sad Face. I managed to fix it by following this thread: Problems when updating your ATV1 ? - READ HERE BEFORE POSTING!

Using terminal it sorted the HDD write permissions and upgraded to Krypton.

Another thread for downgrading for 17 to 16 on a RasPi Downgrade from Krypton Beta
uses this command:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rbp2-mediacenter-osmc=16.1.0-3

If I can substitute “rbp2-mediacenter-osmc=16.1.0-3” for the correct ATV version then I think it will work from terminal.

New to OSMC, and before purchasing new media center hardware want to test drive a bit. Have a barely used circa 2010 ATV1 and purchased a CrystalHD card before reading enough to realize they are only supported until v16 of Kodi.

Downloaded and installed OSMC_TGT_appletv_20170129-HDD.img, then did an update using the GUI which failed, leaving the system in an unstable state, complete with a sad face.

Have now reinstalled. Should I disable updates? Not sure I like the idea of an out-of-date Debian install, therefore want to ask if there is a way to update the base OS without either going to v17 Kodi or encountering a glitch in the repository dependency matrix.

Suggestions?

No updates from OSMC anymore and as there is e.g. a relation between Kodi and libraries coming from Debian I would say you will not be able to stay up to date with it.

Understand. Will look into apt-pinning, or whatever that method is for freezing some packages but allowing others to be updated…
