Having a little issue while Booting CoreELEC-Amlogic-ng.arm-9.2.4.2-Generic from USB.

Hi guys,

I'm totally new to CoreELEC so please forgive the lack of proper words to describe the following ;-)
Side question: Is CoreELEC a glorified KODI basically turning the box to a dedicated KODI device?

Real issue - I just "burned" CoreELEC on a USB stick. I was able to boot from it and configure it on my U22. But the problem I'm having is that the box doesn't boot while having my USB HUB connected which also has another USB Stick, BT Dongle for External Keyboard and another dongle for a AirMouse.

I thought this issue was going to be only on install but I'm experiencing it even after the install. So in order to boot in CoreELEC, I first need to unplug the USB HUB, boot then replug the USB HUB (all my devices connected to the HUB are then recognized and operate properly)

Any clue to how I can boot CoreELEC whithout having to disconnect the HUB first?

Thanks

in essence yes !
Re your Hub issue I cant really help as i dont use a hub, and i have installed Coreelec on an SD card and that boots up fine with a USB stick and airmouse dongle connected.

A bit of a long shot but could you try with the Corelec USB stick plugged into the Hub ??

You might also want to browse the Corelec forum to see if there any clues there.

No love for my post there. LoL, 5 days not a single answer.

So far I'm not craving for any advantages CoreElec might have over running Kodi from Minix Stock FW. So I'll stick with FW005 w/RootSwitch

I have read that some people have had issues with certain USB sticks, but all was well when they changed the USB stick they were using.

Personally, I installed CoreElec onto an SD card, which was plugged into a USB card reader. That worked for me.
Also, I have my U22 connected to a USB hub and all works well. CoreElec and the remote dongle are plugged into the U22 directly, as is the USB hub.

I hope that helps.

Personally, I do not need, or want, to be running anything other than Kodi, so I ditched android in favor of CoreElec. My experience is that there are far fewer issues with playback using CoreElec than with android. YMMV.
