I use Kodi all the time to play music with TV off, so this is not a general issue with v18. Sounds much more like a specific issue with your system or maybe the Shield, but you don't provide enough information for anyone to help you.

There are 2 settings that sound alike, screen saver and power saving. Your issue is related to power saving under system settings.

Ok, this is my debug log: https://paste.kodi.tv/girefacedi.kodcreated on fresh install v 18.1.
Everything works perfectly fine when I lessten music using other software e.g. YouTube app.

My KODI Power saving configuration:
Shutdown function timer: Off
Shutdown Function: Quit
Maximum wait time for network: Off
...and Screensaver mode: None

Music stops playing immediately after screen off.

Do you have CEC enabled on your equipment? Can you disable it?

Also, how is your equipment set up? Do you have an AVR?

If yes, how is it connected...

Kodi>TV>AVR
or
Kodi>AVR>TV

This is my schema:

So far I used blue path because that was only one way to play sound with turned off projector, but when I disconnect USB audio card I can still send audio thru the red path.

When You suggested HDMI configuration I started searching HDMI Pass-Through and it emerged that I do not need USB audio card. I do not know why I did not use this method from the beginning. Smile
I know this is a rare scenario, but previous method still doesn't working with new version of Kodi however, thank You very much for time and suggestion.
