I am designing a media centre. I need to restart xbmc to implement a particular functionality. I have disabled the logs. When I stop xbmc using initctl stop xbmc it displays a colored screen. Sometimes a red/blue/green color appears for 1-2 seconds. Is there a way to remove the color?

It might be an issue with switching video modes. Do you use HDMI for video output? I don't see how this issue should be related to your disabled logfiles. You should enable the logs again to check for any hints on that subject. –  Frederic Jan 28 '13 at 11:56
@Frederic: Thanks for the edit! The question looks better! :) To route the audio from Analog to HDMI I use the audiotoggle command. At that instant I also need to re-start xbmc for the audio to be routed to HDMI. That's when the colored screen appears. Also the logs where related to xbmc shutting down. Eg: xbmc main process terminated by signal... –  Curious chap Jan 29 '13 at 7:43
Yes I use HDMI for video output. –  Curious chap Jan 29 '13 at 7:47
