Daydream comes on randomly during Kodi playback

    Hi all,

    So weird problem is that the Daydream time screensaver comes on every now and then when watching something with Kodi, then I have to resume playback and all is fine again.

    Even if I completely turn off Daydream, this still happens.

    Have reinstalled Kodi to no avail, and I'm running the latest NEO U1 firmware.

    Anybody else experience this or have a solution?

    Hmmm, just saw a topic that says you must clear the system cache in recovery for the screensaver fix in the latest firmware to take effect.

    Will try this at home later and report back...

    So, this was indeed resolved by deleting the system cache in recovery. :)

    Will make a note to do this after each firmware upgrade.

    Where is system recovery?

    Okay I spoke to soon, still did it with Daydream set to activate after 5 minutes of inactivity. I've completely disabled Daydream now, will see if that helps...

    So this is happening even in SPMC, so definitely not a Kodi problem but a MINIX problem. I see that the screensaver was apparently fixed in the last update, but this is still happening.

    Any recommendations, as it's making media consumption quite painful...

    This has just started today on our box Minix NEO X8-H Plus.

    Box worked fine last night when we shut it down.


    I've started my own thread in the forum for our specific device but will keep an eye on this one just in case of a solution.

    Still happening for me, only solution is to disable Daydream completely, clear system cache, now it stays on. Every now and then Kodi will exit back to the media selection screen though, but think that's another problem.

    Very annoying, might have to try a full re-flash.
