Kodi restarts after monitor is turned on

I often run Kodi Matrix headless with LCDProc to listen to radio but find that if I don’t power on the monitor before using Kodi, if I turn on the monitor to watch TV, Kodi exits cleanly and then restarts and I have to wait for PVR to start up again.

Is there anyway to avoid this (whatever this POSIX signal is)

The system can not read the EDID when the screen is off.

Why using a media center headless? :rofl:

You can stop/start/disable the kodi.service to have a “headless” system.
Or you can try to dump disp_cap:

Sorry not fully headless, I navigate, play, stop and change radio stations quickly using LCDProc and I send the audio output via analog, works great.


So I created disp_cap which is a list of resolution as suggested but it still exits on the POSIX signal
