    Thanks all - decided to ditch the card and start new. I don't need the potential unreliabiliyt of a dodgy card.

    Will also adapt the Pi3 to boot from USB and then change to a spare USB pendrive.

    SD memeory card formatter didn't touch it either. Tried two mac machines, a linux vitual machine (though impossible to tell if the USB passthrough caused additionl problems) and a windows machine. Doesn't matter: Only a fiver for a new card.

    OK - so I managed to mount the partition and get what seems to be all the files off. Nothing would write to it or format it though, so the card has gone in the bin.

    After I've re-installed, what files or directories should I copy onto the new card from the old, in order to recover the setup (database, settings, sources etc).

    And do I have to worry that I'll be copying from an older installation to a new one?


    Libreelec on Pi model 3b

    On boot I get the message

    Filesystem corruption has been detected!
    To prevent an automatic repair attempt continuing,
    press any key or power off your system within the next 120 seconds


    "fsck.ext4 unable to set superblock flags on /dev/mmcblk0p2"

    /dev/mmcblk0p2 WARNING Filesystem still has errors

    Forced fsck failed. Your system is broken beyond repair.

    Please re-install libreelec.

    Obviously I haven't backed up the card :rolleyes: .Any way of recovery other than full re-install and re-setup?

    I can still see contents of card on my Mac


    Sounds good. I fully understand that there are many other things to work on, so I don't expect a quick solution. In fact I dont' expect a solution at all - but if it arrives, it'll be great. Thanks.

    Hi All, new here...

    Anyway - the new Raspi has potential to solve one of my problems. My TV has one 4K HDMI input, but my reciever is 1080P only. Unfortunatly the TV will only send stereo back down the ARC if the source is external. So I need a way of getting passthrough audio to the reciever.

    Will it be possible to use the second HDMI to output the audio (with or without 1080P or lower video) while sending the full 4K video to the TV on the other HDMI?

    If so, that would be great. Thanks for any help.
