Hello, I have a RPi 3 running OSMC, which I have recently updated to Kodi 19.1 / August 2021 update. It’s connected by HDMI to a TV (JVC LT-42DS9BJ). OSMC generally works fine, but:
- If my TV is on as the RPi boots, everything starts fine.
- If my TV is off as the RPi boots, OSMC doesn’t start: When I eventually turn the TV on, nothing appears, and I can’t connect on SSH either.
Here are my logs, which don’t seem the include the failed start.
I had the same issue before, and had applied a fix from the Kodi Raspberry Pi FAQ:
sudo tvservice -d edid.dat
- Moving that file to
- Adding to /boot/config.txt
So I have done the same thing now, except that I added these lines to
config-user.txt, given the warning in config.txt. However it hasn’t solved the problem. Any suggestions please?
Hardcoding an EDID is a bit different now.
Thank you Sam and sorry for overlooking this.
In case useful, I had to scroll down in that thead to find the actual solution, so what I did:
sudo mkdir -p /lib/firmware/edid
sudo cp /sys/devices/platform/soc/soc:gpu/drm/card0/card0-HDMI-A-1/edid /lib/firmware/edid/edid.dat
sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt and append
