Hi I have a kit from pi hut with openelec and xbmc 12.2 pre installed. When I try and boot this up, I first get an open elec screen (with raspberry on) and then a black screen with the xbmc logo. This log just flashes on and off every 5-10 seconds. It seems as though xbmc is trying to boot and looping? I have left it for 15 minutes, but no change.

Any ideas what I need to do?

Most likely it's your power supply to the Raspberry Pi. Get a more powerful one. Often cheap USB power supplies won't actually supply what they say they will on their label, or using a USB port on a device or TV also won't provide enough power.

Full disclosure: I work for WeTek. However, this is my personal account, and my words and opinion are my own.

You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , [[userdata]] = userdata (wiki), etc
