Kodi/XBMC is set to run on 720p on my HD ready TV. CMR runs on 1080i in compatibility mode. When I launch it from within Kodi I can see that the TV tries to switch the resolution to 1080i but then gets stuck. The picture returns to Kodi and Kodi wants to use 1080i too (which is sub-optimal). CMR continues to run in the background but I get no picture.
Running Helix Alpha 3 on a Win 8.1 system. I'm using XBMC Launcher to boot into kodi directly.
Any advice appreciated...
For what it's worth, I'd try enabling aspect ratio scaling and setting it to override program settings (this can be done with Nvidia cards via the Nvidia control panel, not sure about AMD). If that's no go, I'd try 1080p for the heck of it. Those should (I'd think) eliminate scaling and scanning methods from the list of potential causes.
