Hi Mario,

Thanks for responding so quickly.

Yes, if I type the commands on the console via SSH they work (even without "sudo", etc.). On the console
Code:
display_power=0
and
Code:
display_power=1
is displayed then.

Perhaps it makes a difference that I am using OSMC?
Would it help to add the full path to vcgencmd in screensaver.py?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I m not sure how OSMC works but it might be that you need to send the command as root user as you r saying but that might need a bit more fiddling then just changing command and adding path...but you can always try.
Saying that i use Turn Off all the time and it's incorporated in my power button script and works fine on LibreElec via CEC turn off and on..now i just tried screen power off and it also works without any errors..
I would open a ticket on Github perhaps Dev can help you..

I see your point. In my setup changing
Code:
vcgencmd
to
Code:
/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd
in 'args_off' and 'args_on' ultimately solved the issue. Now HDMI signal turns off as expected.

Thanks for your work.

Harry
