How to set screen refresh rate Ubuntu 18 with kodi

Unread post by frontrange » Mon Apr 15, 2019 6:55 am

I have a bedroom TV that only runs HD at 24Hz, it's fine for its purposes, but I can't get it to work with a XU4 running kodi. I read all about the Ubuntu bug with setting the default refresh rate and getting it to "stick" beyond the next reboot. Some suggested putting the xrandr command string in Startup Applications, but it only works on the command line, not on my setup which boots automatically into kodi.

Does anyone know of a way to just set the rate to something besides 60Hz so I don't have to toss a perfectly working TV and replace it with one that can muster 60Hz refresh??? This really shouldn't be rocket science...

Does you TV accept only 1280x720 at 24Hz?
Can you check the native resolution of your TV?

Uncomment line#40 in your /media/boot/boot.ini file and let me know the result.
