"Unknown platform capture type: /dev/fb" after config import

  • Hi,


    my sd card died a few weeks ago and I just installed a fresh installation of HyperBian on a new one, bootet and imported my old config.

    After that Hyperion no longer starts and display this error in the logs:

    My capture device worked fine for years now, I'm unsure what to do.

  • bootet and imported my old config.

    don't use old config into new builds ( found that out the hard way) > just save your settings of the old Hyperion.NG into Json file


    because the builds are diffrent you can't use old config and import it.


    What you can do: open your old config Json file: then open Hyperion WebUI localIP:8090

    copy the settings from your Json file into the WebUI, this takes a little investigation but its not that hard.


    then you don't have problems because you start with a fresh Hyperion


    also: make before you alter settings a backup from the basic WebUI into dashboard.

    if something goes wrong in Hyperion you always can go back to basic.
