Problem with screen cut on laptop with Projector



  • Hi Guys,
    I'm using Recalbox system(Build 64055288 from pipeline 20811907 based on 18.04.20 ) x86 at a HP pavilion DM4 a laptop, works great, but when i tried use with a projector, the screen has been cut, beacuse the laptop is widescreen and the projector is 4:3, beacuse that 1/4 of the screen don't show for me. I tried to change the video ratio 16/9 to 4/3, but looks like as the screen showed is widescreen was cut.

    i tried change same stuffs at recalbox.conf like global.videomode, but continued the same problem.

    Thanks in advance



  • @joaomg videomode just works on ip, there is no option to change the resolution on PC yet as it's using the display native resolution. But you may jave a look at the wiki, english mini how to, to change the resolution (once for all)



  • @substring Tks that is wich i needed, i was following the steps (https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Change-display-resolution-on-x86---x86_64) but i had a problem.

    After conected by ssh with root acess, i wrote:

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

    "This will copy ~/.xinitrc to /recalbox/share/system (/recalbox/share/system/.xinitrc). This will be the file that we will edit."

    but i dont know how can i edit this file, i tried

    vi/nano

    but i don't know how can i do it.



  • @joaomg nano ~/.xinitrc



  • @substring Tks in advance, i'll do it when i arrive home.

    ssh into your recalbox: root terminal access

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

    export TERM=xterm

    nano ~/.xinitrc

    and the file will open and i will put this below in the file ?

    Force Display Output 800x600

    xrandr -s 800x600



  • @joaomg if it's what the wiki says, then yes



  • @substring que tal amigo, me podrias ayudar!? tengo este problema y no se uqe hacer, ya intente varias formas y aun no puedo... me puedes decir exactamente en que linea tengo que colocar o modificar y que tengo que agregar... por favor

    ;snes.ratio=16/9
    ;snes.smooth=1
    ;snes.rewind=1
    ;snes.autosave=0
    ;snes.emulator=libretro
    ;snes.integerscale=0

    If you do not want recalboxOS to generate the configuration for the emulator :

    ;snes.configfile=/path/to/my/configfile.cfg

    Default cores for x86

    snes.core=snes9x_next
    gba.core=mgba
    mame.core=mame078
    nes.core=fceunext
    n64.core=glide64mk2
    psx.core=mednafen_psx_hw

    NeoGeo emulator

    You can use pifba or a libretro core (fba2x,libretro)

    neogeo.emulator=libretro

    If you set libretro as neogeo.emulator, the line below sets the retroarch core (fba,imame4all)

    neogeo.core=fba

    wiimotes

    real wiimotes must not be paired with recalbox system so that they can work with the wii emulator

    ## set emulatedwiimotes to 1 to emulate wiimotes with standard pads
    wii.emulatedwiimotes=0

    Configurations generated by Recalbox

    system.kblayout=us
    system.timezone=Mexico/General
    wii.autosave=1
    wii.ratio=auto



  • @josklown please don't paste such files on the forum it's a pain to read

    I'm not sure i understood what you expect from me



  • @substring perdona amigo, mira tengo mi Recalbox 18.06.27 versión pc, yo lo corro en una lap dell inspiron 15 7000 Gaming, El recalbox no tienen ningun problema corre bien, pero quiero ver la imagen en un a tv por medio de un cable hdmi, solo que no me da señal, no se ve nada porque inicia pero en la lap (portatil), estoces he visto que sabes mucho del tema y queria saber si me podias ayudar.

    gracias por la ayuda



  • @josklown You can get spanish help here / Puedes conseguir ayuda en español aquí:
    https://forum.recalbox.com/category/44/recalbox-general

    I think Substring doesn't speak spanish so, you can write it in english here or you can go to the spanish forum and create a new topic there



  • @tonificante i understand spanish much better than i speak it ;) Reading it is ok, most of times.

    @josklown you're using a laptop and expect hdmi signal on a TV, right ? Well, it's not always that easy to get it wto work. Can you make a support archive please ?



  • @substring como es eso? una disculpa la verdad es que no soy muy bueno en es

  • @josklown go to http://recalbox/help, generate an archive, give pe the link please

  • @josklown this is not a file i can use ! Reach the network shares of your recalbox, you should find the suppirt files tbat were generated in the saves folder. Upload the most recent one on the net and give me the link please



  • http://file.ac/ZPSAaxaMGWo/
    this is what appears in the reacalbox.support.sh
    this is what ur reffering to?![alt text](image url)
