I noticed that Kodi stated it was running at a resolution of 1280x720 even after i set resolution to 1080i in android settings. Video resolution settings within Kodi are greyed out for me so i couldn't take any changes there. I read somewhere that videos would be played in the resolution set in android no matter what Kodi states but according to this test (view images in full screen!) all my videos were played in 1280x720 resolution instead of 1080i. Somewhere else i read that Kodi's resolution depends upon system's boot resolution so i made some tests and found a solution:

Before burning liab's image (post #27) to sdcard you have to edit it using Dragonface. Go to -> Advanced Settings -> System configuration. Scroll down to [disp_init] and make these changes:
disp_init_enable        = 1
disp_mode               = 0

screen0_output_type     = 3
screen0_output_mode     = 7

screen1_output_type     = 0
screen1_output_mode     = 4

Also go down to [boot_disp] and do these changes:
output_type              = 3
output_mode              = 7

In both chases 7 stands for 1080i60. You can replace it if you want other 1080 output modes:  6:1080i50 7:1080i60 8:1080p24 9:1080p50 10:1080p60
Since having done these changes Kodi states it's resolution is 1920x1680 and the test linked above also confirms this.
Probably it's either [disp_init] or [boot_disp] responsible for this and changing the other one isn't necessary but the way I did it works for me and therefore I'll stick with it.
The reason why I go for 1080i60 is that 1080p modes don't work for my TV so you should make sure 1080p works for you with your current lineup before following my guide.
Let me know what you think about it.

Is it working with 8188cu driver?  And do you have image link?  This one doesn't work

Wieczor  
Or how can I copy 8192cu driver to matrix image?

No, that's not enough. More changes are necessary.

You mean my image from #27? The default WLAN is RTL8192CU, but 8188cus and 8192cu have the same driver, called 8192cu.ko.
I was not sure whether others changes are necessary, so at the moment I compile one with some changes in anroid. But if you say teh 8188cus works, it's better and nothing is to do.

Please give me the result from:

lsmod
lsusb
dmesg | grep rtl81
