I've tried a whole bunch of media center systems for my fresh RaspberryPi 3B+. The most interesting one for me is openELEC, but unfortunately it is the only one I can't seem to successfully run - neither version 8.0.4 nor version 7.0.1.
I'd love to upload a photo, but am not yet allowed to do this, here, so I decribe it: Right after powering on the device I see a square of color gradients and a lightning symbol like this:
Red - Yellow [Yellow Lightning] | | Blue - Cyan
This is where booting stops. Neither keyboard nor mouse nor ethernet seems to be powered on and therefore the system doesn't react on any input. Only the red LED on the device blinks irregularly.
I came upon some articles warning of a set of non-working SD cards and a table with them, here, where I couldn't find any exact match with the ones I have, but similar cards would work according to the table. For the sake of completeness, this is all information I have about my SD cards:
- Panasonic microSDHC Class 4, 16 GB, E316G1236 TPSPM20930325 UE2IA004714 (nothing similar found)
- SanDisk microSDHC Class 4, 8 GB, MMBTR08GUBCA-ME I CYE161GA 122 (many similar are OK)
Furthermore, I also tried disconnecting peripherals and another power supply - to no avail.
Has anyone had the same problems and found a solution?
Any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
