Strange issue. I have flashed Volumio 3.179 via both Rasberry Pi Imager and BalenaEtcher. I successfully installed 3.179 on a new RPI4 4Gb to work with a HifiBerry DAC2 HD but wanted that 4Gb RPI for programming so i bought a 2Gb RPI4.
No matter what source of OS flash (Etcher or Rasberry), the 2Gb RPI4 will not recognise the flash. The same SD card flash of Vol3 is instantly recognised on the 4Gb PI.
The 2Gb RPI4 will happily load the normal Rasberry OS and other programmes. I have even done a EEPROM restore but still no luck in getting Vol 3 to run. Have tried 16Gb and 32GB SD cards and same result.
Both RPI4’s are using Arm64 OS. Any suggestions. Must be something fundamental I am doing wrong because the SD card works on the 4Gb and yet the 2Gb PI will accept both 32-bit and 64bit OS flashes? This request was posted via the 2Gb RPI4 so it works!!
Hi Wheaten - when nothing was happening in the headerless config I hooked up the HDMI display to see what was happening. On the 4G RPI4 I will see the Volumio banner followed by the password request. On the 2Gb you get the Rasberry Pi Log and barcode and a list of config checks. It looks to be recognising the SD card but there is a comment that says the software is outdate and I should go to the Rasberry.org website for the latest software
Not sure if you tried this once flashed the put into your raspberry pi 4 2gb first
Go on your PC mac linux look in your dropdown list of wifi to see if volumio is showing up
Make you have turn off all you other raspi volumio machine. If come up your know it’s working give it 5mis to 10mins to come up just user name volumio password volumio
Have browser open it should open if it’s no working try again a complete new card not use so you no it should. Sorry I haven’t had this problem and only raspberry pi 4 8gb 4 4gb and raspi zero w all work. If anyone else with a rasp 4 2gb has had the same problem please comment.
Hope this this helpful .
i’ve used balena etcher and the RPI imager, neither have resulted in anything different. it appears to have card activity for about 5/10 mins then just stops. i’m trying a different card currently but both are brand new…
i’ve tried a different distro (retropie) on the same card and its fine, so i currently suspect the video out is not within a range the HDMI / TV is liking. Is there any way to amend that manually?
UPDATE: (hit the topic limit)
got connected via the hotspot and configured things but still have no HDMI output. Touch Display is installed but has made no difference :S
