Currently I have a strange issue with HDMI, let me explain.
config_hdmi_boost=10 #entry was not here, I am just troubleshooting
hdmi_group=0 #entry was not here, I am just troubleshooting
hdmi_mode=16 #entry was not here, I am just troubleshooting
osmc@osmc:~$ tvservice -n
osmc@osmc:~$ tvservice -s
state 0x12000a [HDMI CEA (16) RGB lim 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 60.00Hz, progressive
#TV is off, turning TV ON
osmc@osmc:~$ tvservice -M
Starting to monitor for HDMI events
[I] HDMI cable is unplugged
[I] HDMI is attached
My Sony TV has 4 HDMI ports.
Chromecast in port 1
OSMC in port 2
Cable TV box on port 3 (mypovider uses https://evolutiondigital.com/dvb-hybrid-ip-moca-stb/ DMS1004HFHM
port 4 is empty
OSMC stops responding to my remote control ONLY when I connect the cabletvbox. all other devices keep working as normal.
Steps taken to troubleshooting:
1- change HDMI input from HDMI/3 to HDMI/2
2- OSMC not responding to my remote. and no additional output in tvservice -M
3- unplugging HDMI cable from Cable TV box
4- no need to reset anything else.
5- OSMC starts to respond to my remote.
6- Plugging back the HDMI cable into Cable TV box makes OSMC non responsive to remote.
7- I do not update my Sony TV. There is not firmware updates for it since 2013.
I have no idea as to why. I have changed HDMI ports in my TV as well as HDMI cables. No more ideas.
