Kodi fails to run on dual screen setup
#1
Running Kodi 18 (Leia) under windows 10 pro.

I have a hdmi cable from my laptop that I use to extend the screen to my tv. Sometimes the cable is loose and the signal to the second display is lost. In this case, Kodi will crash.

It's also not possible to restart kodi, it's just that the windows settings are probably messed up. Other programs can manage to handle these kinds of glitches so don't tell me to buy a better cable.

The only way to recover from this is to restart the laptop.

Haha, I was hoping for that reply!

In all seriousness, if the root cause is your cable getting loose then why ask for a band aid solution? Just get a cable fit for the task.. They're cheap as chips these days.

To receive meaningful assistance you will need to provide a full debug log.

The instructions are here... debug log (wiki)

If you are using the Basic Method, then ensure the following is applied...
1.Enable debugging in Settings>System Settings>Logging,
2.Restart Kodi
3.Replicate the problem.
4.Upload the log to Kodi Paste Site manually or use the Kodi Logfile Uploader. (wiki) With either method post the link to the log back here.

If you are using the Advanced Method ensure you have correctly created and applied the advancedsettings.xml file (wiki)

In both instances, you should see the word DEBUG throughout the log.

Note: Full logs only. No partial or redacted logs
Do NOT post your logs directly into the forum. Use the Kodi Paste Site. Post the link to your pasted log in the forum

Loss of signal interrupts the handshake of High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of digital copy protection developed by Intel Corporation to prevent copying of digital audio & video content as it travels across connections. A restart is best.
