I’m trying to install Hyperion on my Rpi with Retropie 3. The problem is after the hyperion installation, the json server is not running and I get “Can’t connect to the host” trying to send command. I tried with Retropie 2.6 same thing.
I took a nee Sd card, installed OSMC and hyperion and everything is working great.
Any ideas? Many thanks,

I have been trying the same thing for the past week and I haven’t gotten anywhere.
How do you start it? With: sudo hyperiond /etc/hyperion.config.json ?

I was actually going to try getting Hyperion installed/working once i get some other things squared away. If im not mistaken, RetroPie is built on Raspbian. I would try following that wiki first. First thing i would try from an SSH session is “netstat -tnl” to see what ports listening. If you dont see the default open then that would be a place to start. Change the default port in the hyperion config file. I think the default port is 19444 or 19445. You can also alter your iptables to open the port. I think the command to do so is:
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 19444 -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 19445 -j ACCEPT
Goodluck and I hope its as easy as opening the ports because in the next few days ill be giving it a go too.

Thanks! I will try that today and get back to you.
Right now I got it working using OSMC and retropie installed on the same SD card. I don’t really need OSMC, but it’s working and I can start Retropie from OSMC GUI.

Did you get it working? I didnt run into any real problems like you stated above. I did have to install lsb-core and that seemed to fix any of my issues. What i did was:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libqtcore4 libqtgui4 libqt4-network libusb-1.0-0 ca-certificates
Enable spi via retropie advanced settings or sudo nano /boot/config.txt and add dtparam=spi=on to the bottom of the file and reboot
chmod +x install_hyperion.sh
hyperion-remote –priority 50 –color red –duration 5000
dont forget to put your hyperion.config.json file in /etc/ and change the file effects path to the effects folder wherever that installs for you mine was /opt/hyperion/effects which I didnt have to change so i doubt you would
I still have some tweaking to do but this is what mine is looking like right now:
Hope that made sense or helps,

i got it to run. with and without grabber.
but i have to do this command “sudo apt-get –reinstall install upstart” to get it working with grabber. But this command breaks the autologin. Now i must login manually everytime i start. Does anybody know how to start emulationstation instead. i am out of ideas.
ps. i tried in the raspi-config boot to scratch and in retropie_setup the “boot in emulationstation”

Does it look like its trying to boot then crashes to console? Do you have a debug log?maykiParticipant08/09/2015 at 15:02Post count: 35
Please help. I can not install Hyperion on Retropie. I installed according to these instructions:
Test instalation :
pi@retropie ~ $ hyperion-remote --priority 50 --color red --duration 5000 Unable to connect to host
SPI Enable with Raspi-Config and config.txt
pi@retropie ~ $ cat /etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf # blacklist spi and i2c by default (many users don't need them) #blacklist spi-bcm2708 blacklist i2c-bcm2708
pi@retropie ~ $ sudo hyperiond /etc/hyperion.config.json hyperiond: error while loading shared libraries: libpython2.7.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
pi@retropie ~ $ netstat -tnl Active Internet connections (only servers) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:445 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:33641 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:139 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:111 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:22 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:43959 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN
I do not know if this is a problem in the port or at the library libpython2.7.so.1.0.
Some idea? Can you help?
