    Another more basic manual option is to goto "Settings -> Media -> Library" and use "Video Library -> Clean Library" option.

    (To manually perform a clean-up of removed video items as and when you require)

    Note in order to see/utilise this particular option you will need to be switched from the Standard view, to Advanced (or higher) view of Kodi GUI settings.

    See for further information.

    Thanks... latest version automatically updated on rpi4 running matrix (today) which in my usage case, fixed recent annoying issue/bug with deleting watched recordings.

    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.


    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…

    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

    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?


    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.

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

    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)
