The very first time I installed OSMC I was able to get into the Network menu setting and configure my wireless card.
I’ve reinstalled OSMC however, but cannot get to the Network menu setting. When clicking on My OSMC, I get the “setting service failed to start” error.
The reason I’m creating a new thread for this is that I’m confused. I have reinstalled with the exact same image I used to install OSMC the first time. I’m not sure why I was able to access the Network menu the first time but am unable to now.
My wireless dongle does work, but besides that, I can’t even find the menu setting that allows for wireless/wired setup in the first place.
Has anyone else had this problem? I can’t for the life of me figure out why it would have worked the first time, and not now? As the install file is identical.
I’m guessing that my issue here is as you suggested and as Spinner has confirmed.
At this stage I’m just curious as to why this only happens sometimes? If across multiple installations that install media and files are identical, and the HDD is always formatted, how can the HDD sometimes be read-only and sometimes work? Perhaps the install script has some sort of timeout that gets skipped depending on the timing or response of files?
In any event, no matter. I am happy to wait until a revised version comes along
