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.

@elParaguayo - You are on x86_64 not ARM right? What is the output of id kodi?

I'm having issues exiting the program. I've enabled the service so it boots into Kodi but selecting Exit, Powerdown, Suspend etc just causes Kodi to hang. I need to switch to another terminal and login in order to reboot.

When running Kodi as a normal user from a graphical environment, this doesn't happen. Is this a permissions issue for the kodi user? There were some comments on the kodi forum (for the Arm package) about needing a polkit file. Don't think there's one here - I tried creating one manually with no change, but I could have got it wrong!

@ghen - Good idea,

Hi, could you add StandardOutput=journal to the unit file, to avoid it to inherit from StandardInput=tty and print xinit output on the screen? (which no other unit does) This allows to get a :)

@asm0dey - If you want to override the package provided files, place your own in /etc/sysusers.d/ ... see man sysusers.d

@graysky I mean mark .conf and .service files as backup, please

Arch ARM is not Arch. They are not the same platform and within Arch ARM there are different platforms. Arch ARM kodi packages ship with their own kodi.service that works on it.
