Hyperion won’t auto start on reboot

  • Hey everyone, I have an issue that I think a few people have and was wondering if anyone can point me towards a solution? Every time my raspberry pi is rebooted for whatever reason, Hyperion will no longer work. The only way I can get it to work again is to open my laptop and the Hypercon program, connect, stop first and then start; it will not work if I press start first, it has to be stopped.


    What is going on here and how can I get it to work as my raspberry pi boots back up? Thanks in advanced :)

  • I hope this is what you are after:

  • Sorry for the late reply everyone. Following what had been said I tried uninstalling Hyperion and then I found it was also installed as a Libreelec addon as well. I uninstalled that too and reinstalled Hyperion through HyperCon and now it starts up every time the raspberry pi reboots :) thanks everyone for the suggestions!
