Re: Openelc issues

I switch off the right way, from Kodi.
But, when switching on again, I have to wait 120 seconds to boot and I loose all my Kodi addons, and have to install the zip addons once again

Re: of BIOS and OS

Re: of BIOS and OS

am I correct in saying that for any OS on asn SD card, in order to boot, it must have the Raspberry PI firmware. Which means that I will have to check if the particular OS, in my case , a Kodi OS, is compatable with Raspberrypi. I am also experimenting with the Orangepi Plus, which, with all due res...

Re: of BIOS and OS

thanks for your prompt reply.

So, in plain language, I assume, that if I swap the SD card for another one, with, say OSMC image. my Raspberrypi2 will boot? Am I assuming that opensource OS have buit in startup, instead of the windows BIOS ?

Re: No video out, any format !

Problem solved by:
Overwrite formatting
Copy and paste the unzipped files of NOOBS, by selecting all the files INSIDE the unzipped folder.
