I'm hoping someone could help me with this, just as the title states - I have a Pi 4 with 4gb. It boots up, I get libreelec logo, then the Kodi logo, then to the main menu and after about 1-2 secs it completely freezes. Top right corner (in the Kodi info box) it always freezes on [Connecting to: Pulse-Eight CEC adapter]. Not sure if that has something to do with it freezing or that's just how far it gets in the setup. So that's what happens. And below is what if done to try and get past the freezing...
-heard about USB C problem so I've tried 3 different USB C cables
-tried unplugging everything from the pi and booting with just [power] connected
-tried booting with the TV off (I guess the thinking there was it wouldn't detect the HDMI-CEC)
-tried 3 different sd cards
-tried writing the image 3 different ways between 2 different image tools
-in my TV settings turned off the CEC stuff (on my TV it's called EasyLink)
-in TV settings changed the HDMI mode from [normal] to [legacy] (not sure what it does but it seems to like legacy better, on normal 1/2 the time I got no picture at all)
-after being at a loss, I even added a fan & heatsink. I seriously doubt it's so hot after bootup it freezes instantly. But I didnt know what else to do.
NOTHING MADE ANY SORT OF DIFFERENCE, IT FREEZES AFTER BOOTUP EVERYTIME!
I can't get to a error log to see what's going on. As far as what I'm using... a brand new BlueRigger HDMI to mini HDMI cable connected to a 55inch Phillips TV and a Pixel 3 XL wall adapter and the Google USB-C to USB-C cable it came with (figured it was the highest quality power & cable I had). I would of assumed the Pi is just too new to have the bugs worked out if I didn't see accounts online and YouTube of everyone else's booting up and working just fine. I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong! Any help or advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.
