Wits end is coming.
I've installed Kodi on my Raspberry Pi 3 running Raspbian hooked up to a Samsung UE46EH5000 (non-smart, non-cec) TV running at 1920x1080 resolution. When playing a video of any type, I get black screen (menu overlays are all there, just no content), sometimes audio, sometimes a freeze at 0:0:0. And sometimes a spinning ranbow grid centre screen (not the PI low power rainbow grid upper right: I had that for a while but I upgraded power supply).
So far I've tried: --Turning off all Hardware Acceleration
--Switching from MMAL player to OMXPLayer
--Switched HDMI Cable
--Removing all add-ons I've added
--Clean install (including killing the .kodi/userdata directory) no additional addons
--Upgraded power supply to 2.4 amps
--Turning on Adjust display refresh rate
--Turning on Sync playback to display
I put the log file in its entirety here.
The suspect bits I see are:

On startup, Kodi iniitalizes the Pulse 8 add on for CEC support -- as I don't have CEC, I thought about disabling this, but haven't found a way to do that. Guidance on that or any other theories about why Kodi isn't working would be welcome.
