I search all over the internet for solution but no luck…
Running RPI 1 with newest OSMC installed, everything seems to work.
I would like to turn off - on hdmi port at specific (night) hours.
I try with cronjob but not successufully.
vcgencmd display_power 0
Hdmi port goes off and monitor turns off, that is great but when I try to do same with cron job I have no luck. Have created hdmioff.sh and chmoded to 777 then try to call from cronjob with: crontab -e
03 20 * * * /home/osmc/Pictures/hdmioff.sh
Is it important where to put this file? I just put it into pictures folder for now.
I am fighting with this for several days now…
It is not about power saving, but system saving.
I am building photo frame for older people and I afraid if they just unplug it everytime they change the place for it, will destroy sd card soner or later.
Dont you think so?
