@substring I just realised that although I changed the update option in the UI after a power cycle it hasn't persisted (so my last set of test results was invalid). Maybe I should change the updates.type value in the recalbox.conf file itself? If you agreem what should that value be?
Also on a different note, I have 4x 2GB ram sticks kicking about. I tried to add them in but Recalbox refuses to boot. Is there a max ram limitation (i have a 64 bit processor and am using the 64 bit build). Actually on that note, how do I know if my GT 710 graphics card has been installed properly?
lastly sorry for the delay - was away for the long weekend.
