Re: Trouble Getting HDMI Output From RPi4

New RPi 4 arrived today. Unfortunately I am getting a display which is slightly too big for the "standard" screen resolution (1920*1080). it makes the menu very hard to operate. I have tried to make various changes (overscan settings, manual HDMI mode setting) in config.txt, but they only seem to ap...

Re: RPi2 low desktop resolution

Code: Select all

framebuffer_width=1920
framebuffer_height=1080

hdmi_group=1
hdmi_mode=16

disable_overscan=1
I think that's it , you might have to look up your hdmi_mode setting . . .

Re: RPi2 low desktop resolution

Looks to be sorted now, I've got a config.txt and set up the framebuffer and HDMI manually. The desktop now reports 1920x1080.
Thanks to all for the help, BTW I eventually found http://elinux.org/RPiconfig which I'd forgotten about.

Not sure why the new model should be any different to the old ones, or why fbdev is set to 1776x952, or why my default HDMI display seems to be correct but isn't used. Anyway, it's lat...

Re: RPi2 low desktop resolution

Thanks for the replies, I can confirm that there was definitely no config.txt to start with, and yes I'm running Noobs. Disabling overscan made no difference, the monitor settings dialogue in the desktop preferences still only allows 1776x952 (or auto, again no difference).

Confirmed, looks like the update tool does not know about the platform. Unlikely to be fixed IMO but not fatal.

Re: Raspberry Pi IRC

One more thing with Freenode, at least on xChat, you will need to enter your nickserv password in the _server_ password field to identify automatically. This is not the case with OFTC, and probably others.
