Looking for a bit of direction. I have just bought at h96 pro 4k kodi box. Was pretty excited to get it up and going. But the excitement wore off when my tv didn't seem to want to pick up or display the box. It is an older tv but still has a couple of HDMI ports.

I tried changing the HDMI port but with no luck. Reset the kodi but no luck. Changed the HDMI cable just to be sure. No luck. So I took it down to a friend's (with a slightly newer tv) and it worked and displayed without any problems.

So looking for any ideas.

Thanks

If it's an older tv, sure it's not possibly only a 720 panel? with the box forcing 4K/1080p it will be out of range. Should be able to adjust it down while in your mates working tv and try.

Force the output to sd 720x576 50 HZ on your friends set

 

That should let you access the menus when plugged into your own set.

Hi There

 

 

 

I had the same issue with my H96 Pro. Even after setting my box to 1080P, it would still come up with signal out of range error on the TV.

 

 

 

I found the fix was to turn on the TV, the AV Receiver which it was going through. THEN, turn on the H96 Pro, and the box and the TV talk to each other and make sure that it stays on 1080P (instead of changing to 4K).

 

 

 

Hope you have found a fix anyway!
