attempt 1 for media server pi
1 format sd card complete
2 download install imager
3 download os now (buster)
2nd attempt update taking over 2 hours, tried to reboot but was denied because i didn't know the password. when installing i skipped the password by pressing enter, when i attempted to reboot the blank password didnt work.
ERROR was using the wrong keyboard
realized this after reformatting the sd card
1 format sd
2 add image
3. boot and setup
ok so i have KODI running, I followed the sequance to get it to auto load from boot but that didn't work.
So here is my confession: I dug this raspberry pi 3b from out of the bottom of the junk drawer because Amazon Prime stopped running NYPD Blue for free. Nows its a couple bucks for a watch so I'm out but disappointed. Having the complete catalog of the Police drama i just put it on a thumb drive and figured Hey, setup a little media player, easy peasy
of course this drama continues, the thumb drive files are not in the proper fat system, of course the content is 98 gigs so i need a large thumb drive. That's it for now, I have to still figure out how to network this little box also so the show goes on
