Re: CPC are here to answer questions :)

Thanks for that info. I think it was just a matter of playing with the settings to find which one worked for you. Glad you got it sorted anyway :D

Re: CPC are here to answer questions :)

Try adding

hdmi_drive=1 (Normal DVI mode No sound)

also hdmi_mode=1 is 640x480 standard VGA resolution

Hope this helps ;)

Re: CPC are here to answer questions :)

If you type the following commands in the command line when the Raspberry Pi has booted up it will tell you which modes are compatible with your monitor.
/opt/vc/bin/tvservice -m CEA
/opt/vc/bin/tvservice -m DMT

/opt/vc/bin/tvservice -s (Shows your current state)

Re: CPC are here to answer questions :)

You may want to try using the HDMI_group = 1 (CEA) as this is prefered for analogue TV's as well as CRT monitors. By default if the particular resolution setting isn't supported it will revert to a default setting, most likely 640x480 in your case. Let us know how you get on CEA (hdmi_group=1) hdmi_...

Re: CPC are here to answer questions :)

Thank you for the VERY prompt reply. I would suggest that you include a PSU spec'ed like this one http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=350659201827 instead of the two PSU's in the Kit. Besides being potentially more price efficient, it avoids the bad practice of connecting the outpu...

Re: CPC are here to answer questions :)

1) What is the Current rating of the PSU supplied with the Powered Hub included in this Kit? It's 1 amp :) 2) Since the Hub will power the RPi by back-feeding the USB Upstream port, why do you also include a 1A MicroUSB PSU? Could the Kit Price be reduced by excluding the MicroUSB PSU? The hub supp...
