Kodi 14.2 forgets screen calibration - Senseohasser - 1st Mar, 2015 01:31 AM

Hi!

Since switching to the new version 14.x my Xbian constantly "forgets" the calibration settings for the screen (the picture is bigger than my TV screen). Confused

My TV settings haven't changed at all (it's a Samsung LCD from 2014), the screen-setting is 16:9. When I set it to "Fit to screen" it works fine unless sometimes Xbian seems to remember the calibration settings (I cannot figure out any system when this happens) and then the picture is smaller than my TV screen. Huh

Any ideas what is happening?

No idea what has changed. Can you:
1) Check /boot/config.txt and check for any overscan entries. If none, then: goto 2
1a) If there are overscan entries, comment them out, reboot and see if that helps.
2) run tvservice -d tvservice.dat
3) run edidparser tvservice.dat > tvservice.txt
4) run cat tvservice.txt |more

Look for the:
HDMI:EDID found preferred CEA detail timing format xxxxxx
and later on
HDMI:EDID found CEA format: code yy which matches the above.

set in config.txt
hdmi_group=1
hdmi_mode=yy

and reboot.

It's a known issue (sort of) https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian/issues/667

Ah, okay, that sounds like my problem... Hope it will be fixed soon.

I had this issue after an update as well (1360x768 tv, went back to 720p with overscan). I was able to fix it by readjusting my config.txt and making sure that Kodi's settings were the same. I then rebooted. It took a few times to stick, so it might just be about doing it in the right order. Perhaps the Kodi Appearance page should have the ability to save such adjustments in config.txt for the Pi as well.

I do confirm it too - on my Pi2 calibration settings are lost after reboot.
It is strange, because on other distros (OSMC, OpenELEC - also with Kodi) and the same TV calibraion is working well even after reboot...

Could you try what I posted here: https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian/issues/648

Quote:Try adding this to /boot/config.txt then reboot, calibrate and reboot/restart kodi and see if it sticks

Hi boys... my first post!
I have installed my new Rasp2 and i have the same issue. I also noticed that, on Meteo page, if i click two times ESCape when returns to home page the issue popups

On Raspv1 this not happens
