Recalbox on laptop MSI-GX623 - Emulators start into blackscreen
Dear Recalbox Community,
When I start any emulator - I get a blackscreen. The monitor I have has the following properties:
Aspect Ratio: 16:10
When I use tvservice. Independent of what command I use, I get the output:
tvservice "code":1, "width":1280, "height":800
I tried a variety of "global.videomode=XXX". Different "CEA X HDMI" modes and all the "DMT X HDMI" modes that should be the resolution of 1440x900 and 1280x800.
I also changed the Aspect Ratio from "auto" to "16/10" on all the modes.
What should I do?
@ehfred Have you tried editing the recalbox.conf file?
You claim that you tested several videomodes but did not specify which ones ...
Try to edit the recalbox.conf, line:
global.videomode = CEA 4 HDMI
global.videomode = default
And test on some emulator, like the SNES, or any other (other than the Dreamcast or N64 - as these have specific configurations of videomode, and the configuration must be changed in their respective configurations).
Keep the Aspect Ratio "auto".
@zing I did exactly that and it boggles me that the booting and the menu works perfectly fine - so it doesn't really make sense that it wouldn't work with default video mode since it means as far as I understand that the resolution isn't changed. I also tested everything with and without aspect ratio "auto".
videomode and tvservice stuff is pi only
@substring Wow. So that's good to know. Thank you! All the time spent was wasted ^^ Do you have any insight on what might help?
@ehfred need a support archive ;)
