Today I received my brand new vero4k. When connected to my TV, it doesn’t complete boot: message “Please stand by” is shown. If I connect the vero4k to a computer monitor (Asus VS24AH-P) it boots just fine. My TV is a Vizio M60-C3, a “pre-standard” 4K TV. The vero4k will be stuck at bootup if it is connected to hdmi port 4 ( ULTRA HD VIDEO 4K @ 30 Hz) or 5 (ULTRA HD VIDEO 4K @ 60 Hz). I didn’t try with hdmi ports 1 to 3, since they are identicals to port 4. I tried with the hdmi cable provided with the vero4k and another cable, same issue.
Good to confirm that. @sam_nazarko is working on the problem as we type
You can boot without the HDMI connected, wait a bit and then connect the HDMI and it will work.
But of course not totally, no CEC and I noticed audio oddities since the TV capabilities are not detected at boot. But at least that will allow you to play with the 4K until the problem is resolved.
Hello, I received my Vero 4k today and did a manual update on it after I did the initial setup. I got the standard notice about leaving OSMC to install the update, I did that and after the reboot it hung on Please Stand By. I waited about 10 minutes with no change.
I tried reinstalling the Vero 4K image using the mac installer. It went through the setup process, said that OSMC had been installed successfully but on reboot, I’m still at Please Stand By. One other note. While the update was downloading, I tried to install TVHead. I got an error saying that it failed and that I should report this too.
I’m connected to a 4K set. When it first boots, the Vero is at 1080, after a second or 2 it switches resolution to 4k. I thought I had a bad sd to micro sd adapter so I tried another adapter but with the same micro sd card. No change. I’ll grab another card tomorrow. I used the mac installer for the first, then used win disk imager to install the disk image downloaded from your site on the second try… OSMC_TGT_vero3_20170301 is the image linked to the 4K download option
Thanks for your patience. I’ve found an issue that can prevent Vero 4K from booting correctly on 4K TV sets that advertise a 4K resolution as their preferred mode. This should now be resolved in these two commits:
I’ve pushed this as an update – so you should be able to update within an hour. You should be able to connect your Vero 4K to a 1080p display, update, and then things should work fine on your 4K display. You’ll need to reboot between this. As it’s almost 5AM here, and I can’t monitor this closely, I haven’t pushed the update to the main repository yet, only the testing one.
If you are familiar with the command line, you can test these changes quite trivially.
I’d appreciate it if you could test this and provide feedback before we release this as an update to other users. To test this update:
I just wanted to add a thank you to @sam_nazarko for the quick fix!
If you don’t have another monitor available, you can still fix this. Just disconnect the HDMI, power cycle the Vero and wait a few seconds. Then re-connect the HDMI. Follow the above instructions to do the update.
