1st off, I've only tried this once so far and it could well be my setup but I am having problems with a NOOBS install when trying to do so through Analogue Video (RCA).
I can get the NOOBS install screen displaying (with the manual selection of the video mode via 1,2,3,4), however when it has installed and rebooted the display is not available. I installed Raspbian and the additional Home space option. I am able to reload and view NOOBS when booting with Shift, and looking at the card the partitions have been added etc.
Q: Does Raspbian auto-select the video on startup as it used to? Or does that now have to be explicitly set within the config file?
The NOOBS installer behaves differently to Raspbian, presuming HDMI and using that for (all) installed O.S.('s) unless told to use composite video "permanently"
. This is, perhaps, easiest to explain further by pointing you to the "installation process snapshots" (for composite video) within my webpages at: http://www.cpmspectrepi.webspace.virgin ... ellow.html
. In effect, Raspbian's normal "auto-select" mode is "disabled" by NOOBS' auto-generated entries in a config.txt
in Raspbian's /boot directory (which is not the directory NOOBS itself uses). However, said config.txt
file (or any other associated with a different O.S.) can be edited via an editor provided via NOOBS' recovery mode: ww.cpmspectrepi.webspace.virginmedia.com/raspberry_pi/MoinMoinExport/NOOBSinstallV132.html#Monitor_Photographs_of_NOOBS_Recovery_.26_Editing_Tools
NB. Although my "snapshots" are mainly for 1.3.2 they still apply to 1.3.4
Still running Raspbian Jessie on some older Pi's (an A, B1, B2, B+, P2B, 3xP0, P0W) but Stretch on my 2xP3A+, P3B+, P3B, B+, A+ and a B2. See: https://www.cpmspectrepi.uk/raspberry_pi/raspiidx.htm
