Starting a movie works fine, the movie is played flawlessly.

But when I stop the movie OE is restarting and I only have a black screen with mouse pointer on it. Then I have to stop/start kodi via ssh to make it work again.

cat ~/.kodi/temp/kodi.log | pastebinit:
dmesg | pastebinit:

EDIT: It looks like it only happens with SD material. I can't reproduce this with HD movies. But stopping the first SD movie it happens again...

Issue still there with today's build. I tried latest Milhouse build and it has the same behaviour. The last one without this issue was the Jarvis 16.0 build, so something is broken in 17.0?

The issue is still there. But playing with some settings I get the following:

- With GUI set to 1080p/23.98 (my regular setting) the issue occurs after stopping an SD movie.
- With GUI set to 1080p/50 all work well

So the problem might be switching the refresh rate from 50Hz back to 23.976Hz ?
