RPI2 + Hyperion + OSMC


#42

Yes, but it doesn’t works. It returns same error: xbmx connection error(0).


#43

I found the solution! It works with the init script:

/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/hyperion.service

[Unit] Description = hyperion After = mediacenter.service

[Service]
User = osmc
Group = osmc
Type = simple
ExecStart= /usr/bin/hyperiond /etc/hyperion.config.json
Restart = always
RestartSec = 1

[Install]
WantedBy = multi-user.target


#44

When I try to install this way I always run in the following error:

ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘/etc/hyperion.config.json’: File exists

can someone help me out? Im running OSMC Alpha 4 on a PI2.


#45

Nevermind it’s working now. Just had to set the locale

Hi!

Every thing seems to be working but the leds doesnt get on.

-No errors running the server, no errors executing the test, and the mobile app seems to connect to the server :frowning:

Is it possible that the problem is in the GPIO pins that I am using (6, 19, 23)?

I have a WS2801 led strip with the raspberri pi 2.

Thanks! :smile:

Hi guys,
I just got my Raspberry 2, installed OSMC and I’m now trying to get Hyperion to work.
Before I had a Raspberry 1, runnnig RASPBMC and HYperion and it worked fine.

I tried the instructions here, but I think something is not working right.

I If I use the following command…

sudo apt-get install libqtcore4 libqtgui4 libqt4-network libusb-1.0-0 libprotobuf9 ca-certificates

… I’m asked it I want to continue. If I say Yes, it’s aborted.

Any Ideas?

Thank You!


#48

OK, I got it fixed. I just had to press enter without pressing Y before.


#49

Ok, I had to do an new install of OSMC and now I’m having the same issue as before.

It aborts the process at the same place , whether I type Y or whether I just press enter.

Any ideas?

SOLUTION: It seems to be related with my PC and putty. If I use my tablet too SSH into the raspberry it works.

#51

OMG!.. I didn’t realize that the raspberry 2 have more GPIO pins than the raspberry Pi B, so I was plug in the wires in the wrong pins :frowning:


Osmc + Tonido + Hyperion
#52

Cannot make Hyperion work again after fresh install of OSMC RC. With Alpha it was working. Setup is unchanged.

Seems the /dev/spidev0.0 can’t been accessed.

There is probably an SPI DT overlay to enable

Sam


#54

Hi Sam thanks for your answer.
It all worked fine in Alpha 4. Is there anything I can try/do? Otherwise I guess I can just wait for the next release which will be the finale. Hope SPI will work later.


#55

SPI does work, but you need to enable it.


#56

Ok sorry than I just said it wrong. Because I have no idea how to enable it and in Alpha 4 it just worked, the only thing I can do is wait or go back to Alpha 4.


#57

Hi, this isn’t a bug so we’re not going to fix this. You just need to enable Device Tree Overlays. See


#58

If you did not understand sam you just need to add the following line in you config.txt file

dtparam=spi=on

Vero + Hyperion
#59

Thanks this worked. I already added this line but there was a typing error that’s why SPI wasn’t enabled.


#60

cant get my hyperion to work on new rc version although it does work on raspbmc version ay help guys heres what was in ssh many thanks http://paste.osmc.io/ziraworale


#61

@aberboy77
The posts just above yours explains how to enable SPI which you have not done.
You should probably start there…


#62

thanks miappa but whats spi lol noob here where in config txt do I put that thanks ?
