Kodi: Screen goes black after video finishes



  • Tried changing the CEC settings and resolution, same problem.
    Tried the pi on a different TV, same problem.

    Kodi is autostarted in retropie. There is a separate menu in emulationstation for it - I followed a straight forward guide to do this - has this been known to cause issues before? My next thing to do is to check what happens if I what..disable this from being accessible in the emulationstation menu?

    Could there be any problem with mySQL database affecting it perhaps?



  • @sphirst dont think so, I also have a mysql database on my pi's and it works fine. Making a separete menu for Kodi might be the cause of your problem. Which "straight forward" guide did you follow ? Did you tried with cec disabled in kodi? Have you tried launching kodi from terminal?



  • @SPHIRST - Did you ever solve this issue? I'm having the exact same problem without much luck in finding info online!



  • @worldofjay Did you tried what I mentioned above? Did you made any special modification how Kodi launches like creating a dedicated menu? The way that is explained in the wiki was made by a unknown user and it is not recommended like it is.
    You have to explain your setup otherwise we wont be able to help you.



  • I'm getting exactly this happening now, after months of perfect function, it's lost the CEC control as well.



  • Ppl, just complaining won't get things fixed, this is something caused by some specific user configuration, because it doesn't happen on a clean install. You have to provide more information about your setup and logs so we can help you.



  • Hi, i have the same problem, but i discovered that if you run Kodi from EmulationStation it runs without that bug. Only happens when the autostart in Retropie is configured "start kodi at boot".
    Exit from kodi and try todo start from ports. If works, i think its a autostart script problem... Permissions maybe?
    Good luck.



  • @darkgroove Please post the information asked here:

    And also a full Kodi debug log:

  • @rascas It is not a problem for me. Only trying to help. Im not enough capable to log Retropie startup and Kodi but im sure it works ok when Kodi starts from EmulationStation. Sorry 4 my english.



  • This issue was introduced for me in Kodi 18. Solution for me was to:

    Settings > Player > Videos > Playback > Adjust display refresh rate > On start / stop

    Hope this helps others.
