Hyperion not working after update to 07-2015 release

Hi there,

I had some problems with Hyperion before after updating to RC3, but got it working after manually enabling SPI in boot.txt.

I just upgraded to the 07-2015 release and Hyperion isn’t working again.
dtparam=spi=on is still in the boot.txt
I also enabled it in My OSMC

Read this thread: OSMC RC3 + PI 2 + Hyperion + Lightberry = Not Working - #18 by duri, no solution except reinstall.
I’d like to avoid that :wink:

Any suggestions?

I have the same problem… but do time yet to investigate…

I’m having the same issue. RPI 2 using the latest update of OSMC. (July 2015 2015.07-1 according to the OSMC Control app.)

My config.txt still has the correct setting of dtparam=spi=on, howevering lsmod shows no mention of spi. Also there are no spi devices in /dev/.

I have tried manually specifying the overlay in the config.txt, reinstalling hyperion and updating hyperion’s dependencies.

I have not tried a full OSMC reinstall from scratch.

Two seemingly unrelated issues:

  1. When using the OSMC config app, selecting the option for “Pi config” does nothing.
  2. Deselecting “Enable Mouse and Touch Screen Support” in kodi does not actually disable keyboard and mouse support.

Should soon work again -> dev-spidev0-0-missing-after-2015-07-update

Edit: I just updated but hyperion is still not working. The Hyperion server seems to run, I can connect with my remote app. But the LEDs not going.

Does anyone know a solution for this issue?

Same here,

Server seems ok, but no output to the ledstrip :’(

after the second update its working here…see the other thread…
