    Starting piCorePlayer without on screen console-messages possible?

    Hello,
    by adding "console=tty3", "quiet", "loglevel=3" and "logo.nologo" to the "cmdline.txt" I managed to get a black screen during booting. What still appeares are the console-messages from piCorePlayer while starting. Is it possible to suppress these messages too so that the screen is completely black until the logo of piCorePlayer appeares?
    Regards George

    The end of /opt/bootlocal.sh calls /pcp_startup.sh
    Code:
    /home/tc/www/cgi-bin/pcp_startup.sh 2>&1 | tee -a /var/log/pcp_boot.log
    So - if you edit that to send output directly to /var/log/pcp_boot.log rather than to tee then it might well do what you want.
    perhaps
    Code:
    /home/tc/www/cgi-bin/pcp_startup.sh > /var/log/pcp_boot.log 2>&1
    and then remember to do it again each time you update.

    Hello Paul,
    thank you for your advice. I changed the command in /opt/bootlocal.sh as you suggested, but there is no change. The message of the start of pCP still appeares. As this is only a minor thing for me, I'll leave it as that.
    Regards George

    hi George_,

    Did you do a [Backup] or $pcp bu before rebooting?

    Remember, pCP is RAM based, changes are usually in RAM and need to backed up to mydata.tgz.

    regards
    Greg
