Hi

I have kodi on my surface 3(not pro) running windows 10. I bought a mini port to hdmi cable and hooked everything up to my TV.

I then switched my projection to show only my windows 10 desktop so I could get full display on my TV(otherwise if I still use my surface screen I only get it's max resoultion).

I then loaded kodi and it loads fine(though for some reason I still see my task bar...not sure why). I then go to proceed to watch a movie(any plugin, I get same problem) and when it starts the video is only like 25% of my screen the rest is black screen.

Go to your kodi settings and change your hardware acceleration. Disable it see if that makes a difference. It normally works for Android but worth a try on your surface.
