Hi , I reported this problem on Kodi forums and they said I should come here. I run Kodi as a service so it always starts on boot
Now if I start the service it doesn't display the main kodi screen and locks the desktop out. This happens running from a terminal using systemctl or on boot with service enabled . This is the service description I use
User = pi
Group = pi
Type = simple
ExecStart = /usr/bin/kodi-standalone
Restart = always
RestartSec = 15
WantedBy = multi-user.target
I have also tried replacing kodi-standalone with kodi --fs fails in the same way .
I then got a clean Microsd , installed a new copy of the latest full release , did the apt-get update and upgrade so all up to date. Then just installed Kodi , created the service and it failed immediately.
When Kodi starts on the system I here the start tone , but no screen.
TV is the display on HDMI-0 (plugged into HDMI-1 just in case it moved to that monitor - no there either)
If I disable the service Kodi runs fine from Terminal just using the normal kodi command .
