    So, I gave up on that TV and bought a replacement which works nicely.

    The only complaint I have is that the resolution isn't ideal and the Kodi menu is slightly wider than the screen. Different Kodi resolutions aren't the answer. In-movie, I can tweak the zoom and other settings, but if anyone has any ideas on this, they would be greatly appreciated.



    I managed to get the Pi4 to boot.


    Results in order:

    Rainbow screen

    TV displays [email protected]

    Then LibreElec splash screen

    Then [No signal]

    in config.txt:

    set to hdmi_group=1

    tried various hdmi modes (hdmi_mode=39) but to no avail. (39 is [email protected] 16:9) (sourced from here:…rking-with-raspberry-pi/:

    TV: Technika 32G22B-FHD 32-inch Full HD

    The TV specifications are:

    Full HD, HDMI, 1920x1080

    Any help is greatly appreciated.



    Following up, turns out it was the wrong HDMI port. Amazingly simple. All working. Now I have to figure out why it works on two of my TVs but not the other one. Perhaps it can't handle the bandwidth? /shrug



    I have no sound from my Pi 4 - I've tried the HDMI port next to the power but nothing. There's no sound from the 3.5" jack either.

    Any pointers?

    I have sound in the jack, however, I have not in the Hdmi, none of them, for libreelec

    however, I have sound in the hdmi closest to the jack in raspian.

    any ideas?

    Pi4:~ # speaker-test -t sine -c 2 -r 44100 -F S24_3LE -b 200000 -p 50000 -D iec958:CARD=Audio,DEV=0
    speaker-test 1.1.9

    I also thought I'd look for a sound card. This might be incorrect, but ...

    Pi4:~ # dmesg |grep sound
    [    0.706223]   No soundcards found.

    dmesg, lsmod, lsusb:

    Thanks! I've followed the links to here which gives me an option to download the library itself

    I'll do this later and let you know.

    Instructions for restoring the older version are here.

    I did a fresh install of LE 9.2.6 but it comes with InputStream Helper 0.52 which doesn't work. There is not an option to downgrade, even when I check Configure from dd-ons -> program add-ons.

    I manually downloaded the temporary 0.53 fix but I'm at a loss on where to place it. It's zipped but either zipped of not I'm struggling to get Kodi to see it. /shrug

    I would sincerely appreciate your help.




    I used a 32Gb SD card SanDIsk Ultra - still the same. Built the card per my previous post, it boots, formats its partitions, reboots again, then goes into the reboot cycle.

    Are there logs I can examine or perhaps switch on / increase the logging level?

    Is there anyting else you can suggest or anything else i can do to tease out additional information?




    I cannot find a similar post with my issue.

    Using "LibreELEC.USB-SD.Creator.Win32.exe" I've written both images "LibreELEC-RPi4.arm-9.95.2.img.gz" and "LibreELEC-RPi4.arm-9.2.6.img.gz" to a Kingston 2Gb Micro SD card (at seperate times).

    When booting, the LibreELEC splashscreen appears and the OS partitions the SD card and then, as expected, reboots itself.

    The next time the Pi starts, the splashscreen is again displayed, but rather than loading fully the LibreELEC OS, the Pi reboots. The Pi then goes into a reboot cycle.

    I tried using a different image writer but the same outcome presents.

    All thoughts are welcome! /shrug



    Thanks. I ran:

    # pastekodi

    error=1 error_msg="Command not registered"

    Use 'vcgencmd commands' to get a list of commands

    I hope that helps? THe USB key seems prett generic.

    That being said, I also purchased a LinkSys USB dongle which worked out of the box - I just needed to add the local Wi-Fi network and bingo. So, there are actually 3 wireless devices on the PI. The LinkSys works as does the on-board Wi-Fi chip, but this generic USB dongle still refuses, and that's the one I need to sort. :)



    Hi all,

    I'm attempting to use a faster WiFi USB dongle with my Pi. However, I'm struggling to configure it. Can anyone advise the best way, please?

    There are a couple of points that have been asked for, previously, below.

    dmesg | pastebinit:
    lsusb | pastebinit:

    Is this that can be done with an add-on or is it command line?

    Let me know, thanks.
