    I have 2 Raspberry Pi setup


    1. RPi4, on LE 10 Beta 4, with Netflix addon version 1.15.1

    2. RPi3B+, on LE 9.2.7, with Netflix addon version 1.12.4


    On RPi3B+, login with Email/Password method is working fine

    However, I can never get this method to work on RPi4. I have to use the Authentication Key method instead


    Would prefer the Email/Password method

    Am I missing some installation steps on LE10?


    Tried that on RPi3. Does not work either.


    Have fresh installed LE 9.2.6 on RPi3 and RPi4. Configured the same "for loop" script in autostart.sh on both setups.

    Oddly, it only worked on RPi4.


    Or output to a file instead of console for testing script..

    Hahahaha.. This might sound silly...


    I am running LibreELEC and RetroPie on a single SD card with a customised PINN setup.

    It is configured to run LibreELEC by default, where I can toggle to RetroPie upon reboot.


    At initial boot, a script will resize RetroPie partition to the maximum available space.

    It would take about 30 seconds to complete, depending on the card.

    Thought it would be cool to display the progress, than to see a "frozen" screen. 8o

    Have tried running the script manually, but did not observe any output or error.

    The script took about 10 sec to run, due to the "for" loop.


    Also checked the journal and paste it in the link below. Can't seem to identify the error either.

    Hi Hias, I did a fresh installation of LE 9.2.6 for my other RPi 3B+ setup.

    Applied the above same script, as what I have tested previously for RPi 4.

    Oddly, it is not showing on the LibreELEC boot screen.


    Is there something I have missed?

    Hi Hias,


    Sorry to trouble you again.


    I have tried the above script on another setup with RPi3B+ running LE 9.2.6, but it is not working.

    Is there something which I need to do or enable first?

    Fresh installed LibreELEC (official) 9.95.2 on RPi 4B.

    Connected to LG TV (model: LG 47LM6690) HDMI port 1 via RPi4 HDMI 0.


    The TV will display correctly if the TV is powered on first before switching on RPi4.

    Oddly, if the RPi4 is switched on first followed by the TV, there will be no display on the screen


    Have extracted log files, as attached below


    1) TV Display OK - TV is powered on first, followed by RPi4

    Separately, I have a RPi3B+ running LibreELEC 9.2.6, is working fine with the same TV and HDMI cable.


    Thank you in advance for the help or advice on this matter. :)

    What I have tried so far

    - Updated WiFi router firmware

    - Restarted Modem and router

    - Same issue with Raspberry Pi 2, on USB WiFi dongle

    - Used different SD cards

    - No issue on LibreELEC 8.2.5 (fresh installation too)



    Not sure if this is a known bug. Did a search in the forum, and found nothing is mentioned.

    Appreciate if any help or advice to overcome this issue.

    Thank you.
