Strange. Also the log file doesn't show any error and it is working on my RPi with Kodi 17 Alpha.

Okay I've changed some things. Would you try it again?

Please make sure you've uninstalled all previous versions and please check if no more kodi.screensaver.pimon directory exists in ~/.kodi/addons. After this please restart kodi once and install this zip:

Please read this:

Iswitch monitor on/of with a script. It works perfektly, but after a wile i get a error message. It is possible to build a script with your code, to power on the hdmi port with a keypress, without the error message?

Maybe you could trigger the screensaver with your power button. Smile

Great to hear! Smile

@trs123

First of all:

Second (only to be really sure this is not the problem): You could only start the screensaver with the power button. To stop the screensaver (and power on HDMI) you have to press any other key.

Third: Please provide your kodi.log file. (see http://kodi.wiki/view/Log_file/Advanced#Log_files) Please remove sensitive data like passwords, etc.
