Hi, i wanted a clean installation of xbian, so I downloaded the latest version (XBian_2015.09.19_rpi.img) and installed, but sometimes after a reboot, kodi starts but after a few seconds the screen goes black or kodi apparently closes and the goes to terminal.

Same :-(
Black screen after a few seconds in the menu.

For my part, this is due to the usb hard drive.
As soon as I connect my usb hard drive, kodi starts freezing and black out after a time...

Sounds like a power issue, how it the USB drive connected to the pi? What power supply are you using? Do you have a voltmeter and what version of pi?
