let me know how it goes Smile

Thank you. Tested in OSMC, and working perfectly.

TY for the update.

I tried this out on my pi 2 with Openelec using Aeon Nova skin. It works correctly, but seems to have an odd side-effect. After it is activated via timeout or preview, I get the undervoltage warning icon pop up when flipping through the main menu options... If I reboot, i.e. Kodi before screensaver runs, there is no warning. Once it is ran once, I get the warning consistently and have noticed some larger options run slower than before the screensaver ran.

thanks for this @timker.
i tried it on OSMC. And it turns the HDMI off, but no matter which key i press, it doesn't wake up.
in fact, i have speakers connected to the jack and i can hear the sound from navigating through the menu, but the HDMI is not coming back ...
is there any way to figure out whats wrong?!

thx

I think that this is the most comfortable way to archive it: https://www.reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi/co..._kodixbmc/

Unfortunately, it will restart kodi at the end, which is sad but okay.

If I go to screensaver->test (pimon 0.3.2) and the screen blanks I cant wakeup the screen again by pressing any key. Waking from timeout works without problems. Someone else can reproduce this? Iam on kody17Alpha but I have this issue also on kodi16

I have to correct myself: This only happens if I watch TV and then go to screensaver->test. I do this because I often want my tv to have only audio enabled and the screen disabled to fall asleep.
This is maybe more an kodi issue than an pimon issue.

I get this error while trying to wakeup screen by botton press:
Code:

Same problem here, pushing any of the buttons does not allow it to wake. I am on a recent kodi 17 Libreelec build. Does anyone have an idea how to make this work again? Thanks.

Wonder if Kodi 17 new suspend function is affecting this screen saver? Only have 17 on at test pi, not with this screen saver

Could you try my (hopefully) fixed version:

Sorry that doesn't work either on Kodi 17. Tested on my raspberry pi 2 with IR. Let me know if I can provide you with any further information which might help. Thanks.

Hmm, I've tested this build on my RPi (B+) with LibreELEC 8 Alpha (Kodi-17.0-ALPHA2) and it works. Could you enable the debug log and provide the kodi.log file? If you have the ssh access enabled, could you wake up the display by running
Code:
vcgencmd display_power 1
on the commandline? thx
Reply
Sure, here is a debug log: http://pastebin.com/EwLEp7aE the display wakes when I enter vcgencmd display_power 1 in the command line. Thanks.

Could you disable all of your other additional installed addons (MythTV PVR Client for example) and test the screensaver again?
