I wonder if someone can assist me. I got my rpi a couple of days ago and it seemed ok under the debian image. However I cannot get OpenELEC to work. I've tried rolling my own under Ubuntu 12.04, and I've tried the latest image posted in this thread, plus two other most recent ones from here (http://www.numan1617.com/rpi/openelec/builds/
) but all do exactly the same thing.
It boots up, looks like its working, until it initialises the GUI. Then the USB devices (only keyboard and mouse plugged in directly) stop working (they loose power completely) and the ethernet adaptor seems to turn off (all the lights go off). The clock on the GUI locks up (sometimes it manages to progress one minute). So at that point its totally unresponsive and I am forced to pull the plug.
I've tried it with the keyboard and mouse unplugged, and the with the ethernet unplugged as well - same result.
I ran it in debug mode (in the cmdline.txt) and the messages log is full of this:
openelec user.warn kernel: [ 83.671676] smsc95xx 1-1.1:1.0: (unregistered net_device): Failed to read register index
and a few of these:
openelec user.warn kernel: [ 83.953098] smsc95xx 1-1.1:1d net_device): Failed to read register index 0x00000114
Googling that led me to a post for a similar error under debian which suggests the power supply. So I tested the voltage across the board (as described here: http://elinux.org/R-Pi_Troubleshooting# ... r_problems
) and I'm getting between 4.71 and 5.05 volts and when it locks up I'm getting a steady 5.01volts, so to me that seems that the powersupply is ok (its a 5v & 1amp psu).
The only other variable I can think of is the SD Card. It did throw up a few -110 errors on boot under debian, but once it was discovered seems to work ok. Unfortunately I only have the one. I've got another on order, but that hasn't arrived yet, so I can't test this yet.
Does anyone have any other ideas as I think I may have run out of them.
