Re: [Guide] Kodi on Raspbian Buster

Many thanks for your work!

I have installed on a rpi4/4gb per instructions, but when I start kodi the screen goes black.
I can ssh in to reboot, then I have a screen again, but I'm lost w.r.t. kodi.
What am I doing wrong? how to get kodi to output to hdmi?
thanks again!
