Audio and Video output settings keep getting changed

  • Hi all,

    I am running the x86 version of the software on Intel systems using on board video.

    One of the systems is connected to a 4k capable TV, but the CPU is not powerful enough to keep uo with 4K display modes in Kodi, so I run it at 1080p configured in the settings menus. Every few days or so the system decides it knows better and detects that it is connected to a 4K TV, changing the resolution slowing it down to a stutter. I then have to go back in and change the resolution back to 1080p for it to work again.

    On my other system it occasionally (much less frequent) decides it knows better than me which Audio output to use, and changes it from HDMI0 where my Denon receiver is connected) to HDMI1 which nothing is connected. Again, it is an easy fix. I just go into the settings and switch it back to HDMI0, but it is really starting to get annoying.

    Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Is there some what I can write protect the settings files so they NEVERchange?

    Much obliged,


  • You could set one or more configuration files to a read-only status, if that would solve the problem.
