In Settings -> System -> Power Saving -> Shutdown function I only have Shutdown and Suspend, ie, no Quit. Is this expected?

@zynex - As ghen pointed out, that can lead to a loop. Plus, if the user selected "exit" from the GUI, it would force a restart of kodi.

That's not very nice when kodi fails to start for some reason, causing a loop.

Just a thought, but shouldn't the systemd service have Restart=always instead of Restart=on-abort? Sometimes you want to restart kodi without restarting the computer itself. Quitting Kodi won't restart the app if you have "on-abort".

I have added "-s 0" to the Xorg options directly in the kodi.service file and it seems to be working now.

First off, I discovered that I did not have xset installed. I have installed it and I see that it is in /usr/bin/xset.

Now, I have tried using both a .xprofile and a .xinitrc file in /var/lib/kodi. I have also tried with giving the full path to xset. Nothing so far has worked, and after some time the TV declares that there is no signal. If I hit a key or wiggle a mouse then the video comes back.

@Renfield - The kodi user has a home dir, you mentioned it, /var/lib/kodi/

Renfield commented on 2020-06-30 19:46

How do I prevent the TV from losing the HDMI signal after about five minutes unless I press a keyboard key? I thought perhaps adding the following lines to /var/lib/kodi/.xprofile would do it:

xset -dpms xset s off

But it did not. Since the kodi user does not have a home directory, where would Xorg look for such configuration?

@elParaguayo nice to find another paraguayo around here!

Happy to send comments on the github issues page instead of filling up comments here.

Yes - on x86_64. This is in VirtualBox (I wanted to check whether Arch could work for my HTPC) but I had the same issue on my laptop.

EDIT: I wonder if this is dbus related... I'll post an issue on your github page.
