Mirror Black Screen - helpless

  • Hi,

    I would like to apologize for my English in advance. But thanks to Google, it is understandable.

    My Mirror crashes after about 1 hour of running time. The screen stays black. I have already played it several times and only run with the standard modules. Additionally, I let the developer console show me.

    But after an hour he hangs up completely. The console gives no error, or crashes. I am really helpless at first what to do. Would you have an idea why it may be?

    Raspbian Buster

    MMM Verison 2.9

    Raspberry Pi3B+

  • @Notch are you using pm2 to start/stop the mirror app? if so, do

    pm2 logs 

    to dump out the logs

    1. Check your internet connection at the mirror. Several modules are set to update on the hour.

    2. Did you update your raspbian installation? Like so:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt upgrade -y
    1. You may wish to allocate more memory to the graphics portion of the Raspberry Pi. Run sudo raspi-config and find the section that allocates memory to the graphics processing (I think it is under “advanced options”). I have mine set to 128 MB.

    Good luck.
