4. Known Issues and Limitations

Normal Thumbnail support in R-Pi:

  1. Can't able to validate RMS( RDK Media Streamer ) and CVR( Continuous Video Recoding ) features while validating Normal Thumbnail feature.

rdk-generic-mediaclient-image:

  1. appmanager is getting displayed after booting up the image but login prompt is not available in the background as usual. It is not showing up even after stopping appmanager.
  2. Certain services like dsmgr.service, netsrvmgr.service, and tr69hostif are crashing.
  3. rmfApp prompt is not getting displayed after playing video using launch/play command. So we need to hard close the video using Ctrl + C combination.
  4. RDK mediaplayer is launched but it is not playing default videos.
