Release Turn Off screensaver
#19
Hi dag,

Your screensaver is exactly what I've been looking for. If I understood it correctly it could be used to cut off the video signal coming from a Raspi and so would not prevent devices such as AV receivers from turning off. The AV receiver would simply assume the Raspi no longer present as a source.

Unfortunately the screensaver doen't work in this way on my Raspi 2 and Kodi 18.9. If I select as method "No Signal from Raspberry Pi (using vgencmd)" Kodi displays the following error message: "Exception running 'vgencmd': [Error 2] No such file or directory". However I checked and vgencmd is present at its usual location (/opt/vc/bin) and /opt/vc/bin is included in the PATH variable.

Is this a knows issue? Do you have any hint how to fix it?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Kind regards,
Harald
