Reboot resets all configs - kormi - 5th Mar, 2013 08:08 AM

I tried to look for this one, but nobody else seems to have the same problem. I am probably not seeing something, but everytime I have to reboot my Raspberry (through pulling power from it), it seems to forget most of its configuration. The most annoying part is the video calibration, I have to adjust it quite a bit on my TV, and have to do it again and again after rebooting. Is there a way of telling the system to remember everything? Thanks...

First of all, make sure you did not switched the read ony hardware switch on your sd card.

If not, can you try exiting xbmc via XBMC -> Power menu (Left bottom) -> Exit XBMC. When XBMC Is closed you will see a bash login prompt. Now pull out the power and check if the settings are saved.

or just try reboot instead of pulling the plug
btw this is the worst way of turning OFF or rebooting the RPi
