Reduce resolution on PC



  • @substring

    Thank you for the quick response. So, there is currently no way for me to change the resolution or were you saying there is a way to do it manually? I'm not a linux expert, but I'm pretty good at following instructions if there is a way. Thanks again.



  • @beldar there is a way, of course. Just haven't searched. It's most probably toying around with xrandr and the xinitrc file. Rockaddicted may have pisted some infos regarding that. I can't be of much more help right now as i'm at work



  • @beldar

    This works for me as @SUBSTRING suggested editing xinitrc

    Sources: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xrandr

    ssh into box, then do the following:

    cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc

    It will copy ~/.xinitrc to /recalbox/share/system (/recalbox/share/system/.xinitrc)

    From there you can edit it with vi/nano from ssh, or use winscp/filezilla to edit /recalbox/share/system/.xinitrc

    add this to the file: (1080p as an example)
    xrandr -s 1920x1080

    Note if you intend to use nano you may need to export the environment variable first with:

    export TERM=xterm
    nano /recalbox/share/system/.xinitrc

    I have linked my working .xinitrc to force 720p:

    .xinitrc recalbox



  • @gnubit Thanks! I work all day today but I will follow your instructions tomorrow and see if I can get it working. I appreciate your time.



  • @gnubit i'd really love if you make a wiki page about this (if it's not existing yet, i losy the count ...)



  • @gnubit I ended up with a few minutes before work. Your instructions had my problem fixed within five minutes. Cheers!

    I would like to contribute (give back) since I enjoy recalbox so much, but I don`t know where to start. I do not think this topic exists in the wiki and think it should as it would help others. Could you point me in the right direction ? I am also quite happy for someone else to add it if they wish.



  • @gnubit please add en entry in the video section of https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Mini-How-To-(EN)

    Name it like "x86: change display resolution". You need angithub accoubt to edit. The wiki uses the markdown syntax (as well as the forum), you can use the toolbar or read some tutorials on the net to get the syntax. I'll help if you need





  • @gnubit Thanks for the tutorial, but on my NUC7 i had to insert a "sleep 1" before the "xrandr -s 1920x1080" line to make it working.

    Without "sleep" it fully started (you could hear the music and ssh access was possible) and the tv displayed the correct resolution but the screen was black.
