Only recently I bought a ControlBlock and was finally able to use the Raspberry Pi as I wanted to, but now that my Pi2 has arrived it acts up weird in the EmulationStation Menu.
Is this a know issue? Is there a simple fix?
I am using the latest SD Image and installed the ControlBlockService as before.

The ControlBlock is also compatible with the Raspberry Pi 2. I have tested that myself.
Can you explain your configuration and setup in more detail so that I can get an idea about the problem?
What have you attached to the ControlBlock?
How does your configuration look like?
Which SD-Card image are you using?hadtstecParticipant02/25/2015 at 22:55Post count: 4
Thanks for your quick reply. I am really frustrated, as this is the second Controller board I have bought for the Pi build and things are going from bad to worse.
The Controller is working as expected on the B+, but not in the Pie2
I am using the Pie2 image 2.6
I can’t create a config file as when I start the Pie and boot into Emulation station “random” buttons are pressed.
If there is an output I can do from the Command prompt then that would be really appreciated.

Just that I understand correctly: The ControlBlock is working correctly on your Raspberry Pi 1. If you attach the ControlBlock on your Raspberry Pi 2 and use the same SD card image for the RPi 2 that you used for the RPi 1, you observe the random button presses?
In that case you would need to recompile the ControlBlockService for the Raspberry Pi 2 (as described at https://www.petrockblock.com/2014/12/29/controlblock-power-switch-and-io-for-the-raspberry-pi/). Due to differences in the RPi hardware the original version of the ControlBlock driver does not work on the Raspberry Pi 2, hence the need for recompiling.hadtstecParticipant02/26/2015 at 12:33Post count: 4
Sorry, I didn’t say that in my Raspberry Pie B+ I am using the RetroPie 2.3 Image
and in the Raspberry Pie 2 I am using the 2.6 image which is specific for the Pie2.
I compiled the ControlBlockservice on both exactly the same way.
Tonight, I’ll try and put the Paspberry Pie 1 SD card into the Pie2 and ensure that there is nothing wrong with the Pie.
