Hello to everybody,

I did an update my XBMC from Dharma-PVR to an actual PVR release (Opdenkamp odk40). With this release the display becomes black (is turned off??) after round about ten minutes watching a film or TV. XBMC seems to up and running, audio still ok. Sending events with the remote, e.g. volume change, doesn't turn the screen back on. So it seems, the systems looses X11 output. Shutting down XBMC & X11 turns the display on again. In the log files, nvidia-settings and kernel messages I cannot find any hints for this behaviour.

Any hints and help??

My configuration is:
- Ubuntu 10.04 with all updates
- Current Nvidia driver 270.x.y
- Self compiled XBMC
- self compiled VDR 1.7.18
- Board: M3N78-EM, 2GB RAM, AMD-K8 4650e, 2xKNC-One

Thanks in adavance.

Add the following to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to see if it helps:

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "blank time" "0"
Option "standby time" "0"
Option "suspend time" "0"
Option "off time" "0"
