Have tried both HDMI Ports with and without those settings.
The Pi also gets super hot at that point. I left it for a few minutes just incase it needed more time. The metal surround of the USB ports is uncomfortably hot to touch.
I am using a Samsung 64Gb SD Card at the moment. When i did the test install earlier, i did it on a Sandisk SD Card so i can swap them. The Samsung is what I’ve been using for months so i don’t think it’s that.
I’ll put the Sandisk in again and get the logs from the working install, but as i said above, my setup is very simple. I have a wireless keyboard and i play media off a SMB share. No special addons installed, etc.
On a hunch, i decided to try a different power supply.
Rebooted and it actually fully booted with the new version.
I was able to complete the setup, add my file share and played some media. Yay!
rebooted the Pi using the menu. It hung while booting like before.
Manually rebooted. It fully booted again.
I turned on the debug logging, rebooted and was able to upload the logs.
I understand the Pi’s need decent power supplies, it just seems odd i can literally have 2 SD cards with different versions of OSMC on it and one will work and one won’t all because of the power supply.
I’m still a little worried that it hung once with the ‘new’ power supply.
Newer versions of OSMC and Kodi have increasing resource requirements, and power supplies degrade over time. It’s likely that your older PSU is borderline and will be problematic (i.e. not even boot on the older version of OSMC soon).
TBH i was actually using one of the always on charging ports of a computer to power it. Was convenient and seemed to work at the time.
It hung again when booting, looks like i need to do some research into what is a good adapter… or maybe just buy the genuine one.
That’s an interesting power rating. It should still be taking 5V, so 15W @ 3A. Thats what the official power adapter is.
I do know that supplies that support quick charge will bump up the voltage, it’s possible it’s not supplying enough power at 5V?
Otherwise, i know the actual cable can be part of it as well, so might not be terrible to swap that out too.
