So I built a media centre a while ago, which started by testing a 16gb mem card on a Pi B+, set it all up and got some basic stuff working including moving the ACT light to one of the GPIO pins as the media centre was going in a PC case and I was using the PC case LEDs. I bought a Pi2B and built a new SD card for it with the required image and made the same mods, my B+ has been used for something else and now I want to use my 'Test' OSMC SDcard in a spare Model A I have.
OSMC works fine on the Model A, its just basically for playing music from USB and having tested it tonight it works fine, for its application though its going to have nothing else plugged in other than a hub, with other people using it (eg doing shutdowns) so I thought I need to re-enable the ACT light to help tell if the thing is actually performing an action, but I dont know how you turn it back on?
originally I had it setup by adding this line to the boot txt: dtparam=act_led_gpio=xx
and had it set to like pin 16 or something back, but if I take the line out it doesnt make the ACT LED work.
Any clues as to what I have missed?
