Device: Raspberry Pi 2 B
Installation media: microSD
Power Supply Type: ?
Power specs: 5V 2000mA
Peripherals: TV or Monitor, Network
Storage Device (incl. Network Sharing Protocol):
OSMC version: 2015.08-1 (also tried older ones)
XBMC version: Kodi (15.1). Platform: Linux ARM (Thumb) 32-bit
Audio/Video Output: HDMI
Config.txt Extras: hdmi_force_hotplut=1, config_hdmi_boost=7
Would post logs, but to be honest, i have no idea how to turn on logging via command line.
Problem: No HDMI signal - or better, no image on the TV. I only have a black screen.
I do can log in via SSH.
Tried different HDMI cables, a LG TV and two Samsung monitors. Tried hdmi_safe=1, config_hdmi_boost=4-7, set the hdmi modes by hand.
I can get the following informations (Done while connected to the TV, output on Monitors are simliar)

Also the TV seems to provide correct EDID information.
tvservice -n says:
If i enable monitoring of the hdmi port (tvservice -M), OSMC recognizes when i remove or connect the HDMI cable.
On the Monitor, i noticed that if i pull the HDMI cable, the monitor shows “no signal”. if i attach it again, it tries to find something on my HDMI but can’t and kinda goes to sleep mode.
HDMI inputs and cables work fine with my PC… so they should not be the problem.
I had it working once about a month ago when i got my Raspberry pi 2 - the next time i wanted to power it on, it did not work anymore.
Funnily, the same happened with my old Raspberry B+ (1) when updated OSMC about a month or so ago…
