Re: sdtv_disable_colourburst

Burngate I think that it isn't in the way you described. Only the old first colour tv sets (1960s and 1970s tube sets...) have the ability to shut down the video low pass filter when they don't detect the colour burst presence, in order to give full black and white resolution to a real b/w signal. M...

sdtv_disable_colourburst

I know that the option sdtv_disable_colourburst=1 in file /boot/config.txt "disables colourburst on composite video output. The picture will be displayed in monochrome, but it may appear sharper." You can read this here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/video.md . T...

Re: VLC 3.0 with hardware acceleration

I confirm that if you make apt-get update and apt-get upgrade over raspbian-2019-04-09 installed, you lose analog video output functionality. After these updates you can't play any video both with vlc 3.0.7 and with omxplayergui over the analog TV. So, be careful and we'll wait for something better ...

Re: VLC 3.0 with hardware acceleration

Tested now always with raspbian-2019-04-09 , but without the update wizard after first boot. Vlc in this way is 3.0.6 and works well in full screen in analog video output. Omxplayergui also works well, it plays videos and full screen on analog tv. So there is something broken with the update wizard....

Re: VLC 3.0 with hardware acceleration

I loaded last Stretch version of April 2019. I installed Kweb suite and I obtained both the advantages of omxplayer gui and vlc 3.0 . I can play some video formats with vlc 3.0.7 (the same that could be handled in raspbian buster) and I can play the other formats and also youtube urls with omxplayer...

Re: VLC 3.0 with hardware acceleration

Test of Raspberry Pi 3 model B. Raspbian reinstalled on a new microSD. I first tried the official last version of Raspbian with desktop, that is called "buster". It comes with VLC 3.0.7 wich has HW acceleration and doesn't need to be installed with manuallì compiled. I made some tests with this new ...

Re: Where are 'vino-preferences'?

Would you or anyone reading this know how to implement a vino vnc password? Currently, with vino running anyone can access my Pi screen over the network. On wheezy I used preferences to set a password, but that is gone on jessie. Thanks in advance. To set a password for vnc authentication, in gnome...
