Lost TV output after update

Hi all,
I had a prompt for a OSMC update for a few days / weeks or so and tonight finally applied the update. Since the update the TV seems to have a black invalid format message bouncing around. :frowning:

If i reboot the PI via SSH i can see the OSMC splash screen then it goes back to been black and invalid format message. I know the PI is booting as SSH / WWW is up.

Pretty sure its resolution related as my TV is quite old and supports upto 720p. Was working fine prior to the update.

Below is the output from the logs.


I’ve also gone some googling and output from these commands

I’ve tried a few settings in /boot/config.txt but since hashed out the entrys at it made no difference.

Can anyone help? Its my first post so please bare with :smiley:

What happens if you go

tvservice -e "CEA 4 HDMI"

invalid format message message has gone, but the screen is still black.

renaming the .kodi folder and rebooting seems to bring the display back …

Good. If you want to save all your other settings you could try deleting just the lines with videoscreen.resolution and videoscreen.screenmode from guisettings.xml in your original .kodi directory.

thanks will give it a go as my addins etc look to be missing.
