I tested the USB install home.tc with TrueCrypt within the Live CD. Using Main and then Hidden passwords both successfully mounted home.tc.
A test text file was on the hidden homepage as expected proving I had previously booted into the hidden /home directory.
Also tested using same using Main password, no test text file present as expected.

Reason: Problem solved by Maintainer
That was indeed the problem I had set the Hidden /home way too big and I presume Normal /home could not load. It was about 40-50mb.
Working like a treat now.
Might be worth mentioning this in the setup section to give people a heads up on this error possibility.
