Re: HDMI

It's this screen:

It requires some stuff like:

hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_drive=2
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=9

Which too me is just insane... why bother with a standard (HDMI) if this kind of woodoo magic is required...

Re: Hardware h264 in browsers?

I think the problem is that omxplayer plays 1080p flawlessly with 5% CPU and youtube barely plays at 360p with 80% CPU... hardware video does not work in browsers yet, so when? When will the square that shows video on f.ex. youtube be an instance of omxplayer streaming mp4? I'm guessing the only pro...

"The boot partition on a Pi should be accessible from any machine with an SD card reader, on Windows, Mac, or Linux. If you want to enable SSH, all you need to do is to put a file called ssh in the /boot/ directory." This makes no sense, I have two partitions on my card, one contains lots of files b...

Yep TWM is ancient but it's so much nicer than all the new stuff... I have successfully done all of the above, but the keypresses display nothing.

Re: Bluetooth Keyboard

I use TWM, so I don't have the applet menu bar... so I need to do that manually. But my problem is not pairing and connecting that part worked, my problem is detecting if the keystrokes are getting to the raspberry and why they don't type anything.

Re: Old BCM2836 RPi 2?

Because they become too hot at 100% and I prefer longevity.

My use case is a server cluster so I don't care that much about the performance of the BCM2837.

Re: 800x600

My problem is I get a black screen...

I'll try some of the config.txt workarounds.

Edit:

HDMI_FORCE_HOTPLUG gets the display working at 640x480.
HDMI_SAFE gets the display working at some weird resolution.
