I'm new to Openelec, just used Android images up to now but generally end up just using Kodi so Openelec looks like a good option.

I've had problems getting the latest image for the OPi One to boot.  I use a combined USB WiFi keyboard & mouse which has always worked fine.  I found that Openelec booted fine without the dongle plugged in, but wouldn't boot with it plugged in.  I tried plugging in post boot but it isn't picked up.  I also tried a standard USB optical mouse but that doesn't work either.

I'm using the standard installation process - SD Formatter, Win32 Disk Imager and have tried 3 different cards.

Is this an installation issue or are the drivers not included?  Or is the USB port not working as it should?

Are you using the correct image? My standard wired mouse and keyboard works perfectly.

I have an OPi One and am using the OPi One image.  It only has one USB port hence why I need to use a combined mouse/keyboard.  Are you using a hub or a different board?  When I plug a standard optical mouse in the LED on the mouse doesn't light which suggests that maybe there's an issue with the port?

OPi One has two USB ports and another two on the board in the form of soldering points.

I have the Orangepi PC.
So the problem is probably in the kernel (uimage or script.bin).

I have an OPi PC as well as the One so will give that a try using the PC image and the same install process I used for the One.  If that works then it suggests the problem is with the kernel.

Just to say that I installed on my OPi PC using the same method and all works fine, using the vertical USB socket. Suggests the issue is with the initialisation of the USB A port on the OPi One, so probably a kernel issue.

Can't be, because there is now exactly one kernel for all boards. I also updated kernel masively yesterday. Did you compile the image from yesterday sources?

No I used the latest precompiled image on mega. From comparing PC with the One, it does seem that the issue is with the USB port - works fine on the PC, not at all on the One. Is there anything else that could be causing this?
