I have been having a problem with osmc. This is a topic I have seen a bit on the forums. the thing that happening is that osmc does not show up on my monitor I just get a no signal and it goes on to standby but the on light on the pi is on. I have tried HDMI Hotplug. but it does not work. I am using a Raspberry Pi2 and my monitor is VGA only; for this i use a HDMI to VGA adapter, Could this be the problem?
So you are talking about first boot of the installer I assume?
Really nothing on the screen at all?
Have you tried other OS like Raspbian?
After you try to boot can you check the SD card in a PC? Is there an install log on the boot partition, what does it say?
No I can boot up and install fine bit after i shutdown my pi it wont boot again. There is nothing on the screen at all. I have tried to install kodi on rasbian but with no success. I will post the boot logs when I find them
Install logs are as follows (note that i have reinstalled osmc) –
