Error Explanation

Hi all,

CE 9.2.2., Odroid N2

I’m getting the following error in kodi.log

ERROR: GetString: error reading /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/custom_mode

Can someone please tell me what it means?



It is just indication that this file doesn’t exist. Nothing to worry about - system is still working fine.

Yes, I know the file does not exist as I checked. Just worried that it might have to be there. Yes all is working OK.

The error is there because the Amlogic code added to Kodi never checks whether the file is actually there before trying to open it, and it relies on failing to open the file as a sign that it’s not there.
It’s not an elegant way of doing things, but it doesn’t affect the system in any way, just causes extra crap in Kodi log.

Thank you for the explanation.
