Kodi Black screen/restart - YoYoost - 10th May, 2015 03:47 AM

XBian version: XBian 1.0 (knockout)
XBMC/Kodi version: 14.2-1431026245
Overclock settings: Medium

Device type and model (e.g. Raspberry Pi Model A/B 256/512 MB, CuBox-i i4Pro, ...): Raspberry Pi 2 Model B
Power supply rating: 5V 2000mA
SD card size and make/type: PNY 8BG Class 10 (boot) with Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 (root)
Network (Ethernet or wireless): Ethernet
Connected devices (TV, USB, network storage, ...): TV Panasonic Viera and Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3

When I use this version of Kodi and I start xbian-config from the GUI or 'System info' for example I get a black screen for 1 second and then the blue Kodi desktop with the cursor in the top left corner for half a second. It seems like Kodi is restarting and this keeps repeating. I tried restarting (from SSH) and replugging everything but it made no difference.
If I stop Kodi (sudo stop xbmc) I can use the Raspberry Pi with the installed packages (NZBGet, Sickrage, Couchpotato, etc.) just fine.

I tried using the second to last Kodi package (14.2-1430380114) but this has the same issue.

After manually downgrading to the Kodi 14.1 package there is no issue at all. I used:

sudo apt-get install xbian-package-xbmc=14.1-1423177674


When this happens and I leave 'top' open via SSH I see this:

3405 xbian -50 0 258m 48m 33m S 107.2 6.5 0:02.60 kodi.bin
3655 xbian -50 0 69404 19m 18m S 6.9 2.7 0:00.21 kodi.bin
3655 xbian -50 0 205m 43m 31m R 67.1 5.8 0:02.24 kodi.bin
3901 xbian -50 0 69404 19m 18m S 6.0 2.7 0:00.18 kodi.bin
3901 xbian -50 0 203m 40m 30m R 55.2 5.4 0:01.85 kodi.bin
4135 xbian -50 0 69404 19m 18m S 6.6 2.7 0:00.20 kodi.bin
4135 xbian -50 0 202m 38m 30m R 44.3 5.3 0:01.54 kodi.bin

So it looks like the process is actually respawning.

Edit (solved):
This is fixed in 15.1-1440132163

This is with kernel 3.18.8+ by the way

I tried replacing the /boot dir with the one from the XBian_2015.05.23_rpi2.img.gz and XBian_Stable_rpi2.img.gz but this didn't change antything. In was able to install all updates without any issue with the exception of Kodi 14.2-1431026245

RE: Kodi Black screen/restart - YoYoost - 3rd Jun, 2015 04:04 AM

I now actually run 14.2-1427783323, using sudo apt-get install xbian-package-xbmc=14.2-1427783323

The lower resolution support is better on this version.
I tried running the latest while disabling CEC but this didn't help, I also tried reply going all USB devices (which is just the USB root key) as another user somewhere else on the git with a clean image suggested. All this didn't work.
