could be.
seems that this is set because of
setenv vout "dvi"
is uncommented.
can you try to comment it out and boot? if there is going to be no output you can always change it back plugging mmc into other computer, the file is on fat32 partition.

Hello all,

sorry for digging up this older thread but maybe someone is having the same problem and will find this useful.

I had a similar problem as OP - an Odroid Ubuntu minimal install with Kodi framebuffer version on a Full HD screen, Kodi ran only on part of the screen with 1280*720 resolution. The same issue is described here https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=321254.

The solution for me was to edit /media/boot/boot.ini (or maybe boot.ini.default would be a better place), comment out setenv display_autodetect "true" and change setenv hdp to "false". After a reboot Kodi runs full screen in 1920*1080. I've tried only the youtube addon so far - video and sound (via a USB sound card, I have no hardware to test sound through HDMI) both work, although, for some reason, the output sometimes switches back to the shell with Kodi writing something to the console. Starting kodi with kodi &>dev/null has no effect.

My non-privileged username is odroid and the user is in the following groups: odroid dialout cdrom sudo audio dip video plugdev users input

Thats all!
