Black screen

    Sometimes when I close down kodi the screen goes black. And it doesn’t go back on when I start kodi again.

    I am starting kodi with my remote which fires off the start_xbmc script. Tvrough this .bashrc entry:

    bind -x '"A":"/opt/max2play/ >> /dev/null 2>&1 &"'

    Is there a way to reinitialize the display through the console. In other words how should I change my .bashrc to also reinitialize the display?

    This issue is new for the jessie image. The wheezy image worked fine.

    Hello asplundj,

    If you open kodi out of the terminal, and then close it, the terminal is set to a clear terminal. But it can still be used. Kodi does not fill the full screen. Because of this we use this:

    sudo sh -c "TERM=linux setterm -foreground white >/dev/tty0"

    If the desktop is on autostart, this will be the background after close kodi. Or if you starting kodi with jivelite, and then close kodi, you will come back to jivelite.

    Well most of the times it works. I can always start kodi but sometimes I just don’t see anything because the monitor is still black. I can see that kodi is running through the yatse app.

    I’ve skipped my jessie image now though and moved back to my wheeze image.
