    Thanks for the suggestions.

    This unfortunately did not work.


    My goal is for the TV to power off when Kodi screensaver is activated and power on when Kodi screensaver is deactivated.

    OK had not picked up on that requirement when I responded, focusing in on correct interaction between devices regardless of screensaver "suspended" state or not of Kodi libreELEC device. :blush: (CEC being a fickle beast to get perfect between combinations of older/newer HDMI connected devices)


    But maybe its an alternative compromise for your current layout/setup that may allow soundbar and tv to correctly maintain control and interact with LibreELEC when TV is being switched on/off, where I had also assumed you may wish to use TV CEC remote for interactive control of all three devices. (Rpi4 LibreELEC always powered up and running in background)


    When LibreELEC is in screensaver mode are you highly concerned about need for TV to switch off as usually these are shorter periods when we are distracted away from watching TV, intending to return; rather than forgotten, to switch TV and soundbar OFF via TV remote.

    (Well in my typical usage case)


    My thoughts, are due to fact that most of the time I personally use TV remote as main daily remote for control and operation of TV, AVR and LibreELEC. (When switched to rpi4 LibreELEC as my active HDMI playback device)

    Try disabling "wake devices when disabling Screen saver option" and "put devices in standby mode when activiting the screensaver" and see if that combination helps resolve your particular issue.


    ---edit---


    oh and also disable "Devices to put into standby mode"

    example of howto enable the operation of the "LibreELEC.USB-SD.Creator.Linux-32bit.bin" file you have dowloaded on your linux pc


    How to execute a .run or .bin package in Linux
    For the apps that are not available through the Ubuntu software center, some developers package the executable in .run and .bin binary packages. Let's see how…
    www.fosslinux.com


    Run and use dowloaded tool steps 1, 2, 3, 4 to guide you and setup LibreELEC suitable for your rpi3 written as an image on your SD


    Rolled back to 20210717 and checked HDMI settings for Audio correctly setup on second hdmi connection etc.

    Apologies as now realise that ssh was probably working absolutely fine in 20210720 (user error using ssh from pc :blush: )


    LibreELEC:~ # pastekodi

    http://ix.io/3tD0

    LibreELEC:~ # modetest | pastebinit

    no results to fetch


    Hope information is helpful, can try again with 20210720 installed in order to compare results between builds on my particular setup

    (now I have resolved user error with using ssh, hadnt used putty in a while, didnt check carefully loaded session parameters :blush: )

    added hdmi_enable_4kp60=0 to end of config.txt on sd, then attempted to boot rpi4, no change blank screen.

    No ability to access rpi4 via ssh or samba even after a reasonable wait time

    Removed power


    on a hunch, disconnected 2nd hdmi which in my usage case outputs audio to older AVR that does not support 4K etc

    (1st hdmi connected direct to 4k TV)

    Reconnected power to rpi4 and libreelec booted up OK, samba access ok, but access to rpi4 via ssh not available?


    Removed hdmi_enable_4kp60=0 in config.txt on sd

    Removed hdmi_enable_4kp60=1 from distroconfig.txt on sd


    Attempted to boot, no change blank screen.


    Removed power

    disconnected 2 hdmi

    Reconnected power rpi4 booted up OK samba access ok, but access via ssh not available?


    So unfortunately unable to run suggested commands via ssh whilst 20210720 installed.


    Considering to roll-back to previous nightly and try upgrade again, anything else to try whilst only one hdmi connected with everything other than ssh appearing to be working OK? (to gather elements of requested info i.e. from libreelec build in pastebin options)

    I have same issue with my rpi4 jumping from 20210717 to latest 20210720, where in my case sd only contains LibreELEC. (No Noobs)

    Black screen, not visible on network etc.


    Thanks for the pointer..Will take a look at config.txt and attempt to restore/replace later today.

    Take a read through following thread may provided pointers, maybe Denon AVR-2310 doesn't know what to do with Audio only HDMI input?



    And I would read through AVR manual carefully as perhaps you need to make HDMI setting adjustments on the AVR?

    telecharge.php?pdf=Denon-AVR-2310-Owners-Manual.pdf

    ginogio65 be aware that in my case I am still relying on manual method (checking through kodi GUI) that audio correctly assigned to hdmi1

    (Between reboots of rpi4 to update to latest nightly and when my TV/AVR combination are switched off/on)


    in my case, I need to ensure ALSA: vc4-hdmi-1, ONK TX-SR608 on HDMI is selected

    in your case, I note from secreen grab that you need to ensure ALSA: vc4-hdmi-1, MJI Marantz-AVR on HDMI is selected


    My understanding is that vc4-hdmi-1 relates to card0-HDMI-A-2 where for my own understanding I double checked by sshing into rpi4 and inputting tail /sys/class/drm/*/status command when both my TV and AVR is switched on and fully recognised.

    Code
    tail /sys/class/drm/*/status
    ==> /sys/class/drm/card0-HDMI-A-1/status <==
    connected
    
    ==> /sys/class/drm/card0-HDMI-A-2/status <==
    connected

    So in my usage case above confirms


    hdmi0 = card0-HDMI-A-1 = Philips 55PUS7304 4K TV

    hdmi1 = card0-HDMI-A-2 = Onkyo TX-SR608 AV Receiver


    You are ensuring that your AVR is remaining switched/fixed to hdmi port that you connected your rpi4 to your AVR and that both Audio settings assigned to ALSA: vc4-hdmi-1, MJI Marantz-AVR on HDMI ?


    This question/comment relates to my usage case with my TV connected to HDMI out from my AVR in order to utilise CEC/ARC features between TV/AVR. If I am not observant I can miss fact that my AVR may switch from rpi input hdmi port to TV output hdmi port.

    (i.e. Does this infrequently during navigation of Kodi GUI controlled via CEC and remote of TV)

    I'm currently working on a script to simplify this whole edid stuff - hopefully that should make it into beta2.

    Great thread topic on AVR detection and explanation on how-to utilse rpi4's spare HDMI port to output audio directly to AVR (HDMI 1.4b in my case) when following Settings are correctly assigned to required hdmi out. :cool:

    • Settings -> System -> Audio -> Audio output device
    • Settings -> System -> Audio -> Passthrough output device

    Just been testing method/process with hdmi0 (video) and hdmi1 (audio) this morning (which works perfectly, thanks) and like others, I now understand will need to permanently setup edid and config, such that rpi4 remembers hdmi1 connection, when rpi4 and/or AVR is powered off/on.


    Thank you HiassofT :thumbup:

    It is just the name of the update channel - it still provides the latest nightly builds. Maybe a bit confusing...

    Temporarily switched from LibreELEC-10 to LEnightly-9.80 as my "update channel" ;)

    For my rpi4 I have following two custom channels assigned in order to switch between above "update channels"

    Code
    Custom Channel 1 https://test.libreelec.tv/
    Custom Channel 2 https://up.legg.ga/rpi4/

    Just a comment in thread that update to latest nightly build for rpi4 via new custom channel url is currently not providing available 04/03 and 05/03 nightly builds. Noted that releases.json currently dated 03/03 and assume (ref Irusak previous comments) patience required and not a fully automated set-up to pick up latest Nightlies just yet.
