Trouble with splash screen (resolution ?)
I have a trouble regarding recalbox loading.
Indeed, while recalbox is loading, there are funny splash screen videos before ES starts.
It works well on my old 19" DVI screen (pluged with a HDMI to DVI plug converter), I can see splash screen (short videos).
But it doesn't work properly with my other 19" LCD screens with only VGA plugs (pluged with a HDML to VGA plug converter).
I tried with a viewsonic one and a acer one. Both have the same issue :
- Screens are displaying recalbox black screens when power one (with a white blinking command cursor).
- Then switch on splash screens (but no display) and screens monitors are displaying error messages. For Viewsonic : "Out of Range". For Acer : "Frequencies are not supported".
- Then ES version and progress bar
- Then Recalbox is up
I'm using recalbox 7.1 on a Raspberry Pi 4, 64 GB SD Card.
Do you have any idea of the reason of issues on splash screens ? Is it the result of a bad screen configuration in config.txt or recalbox.txt ?
Thanks for your help.
@MadCow hi there. In config.txt add :
#video mode DMT hdmi_group=2 #1280x1024 60 hdmi_mode=35
and in recalbox.conf
global.videomode=DMT 35 HDMI
Thanks a lot @ian57 , but I've already did that.
In fact, it's just during splash screen that my screens (plugged in VGA) are not able to display anything.
In recalbox/ES, it's ok. I can see User Interface properly.
Any other track or idea ?
Thanks again for your help.
Splash videos are in 1080p, that your screen doesn't support.
Try to convert the videos in 720p (If you don't know haw to do this, I can send to you a video for testing) then put the files in share/bootvideos, and change in recalbox.conf this line :
@MadCow thats strange becaus I use viewsonic 19" screen with these parameter and everithing is working. BUT i use hdmi vga converter. I think we should look at dvi option
did you try to add
hdmi_drive=1 # force dvi
@leahcim66 thanks for your proposal. Could you please share it ?
Will try this.
@ian57 I will try also and let you know. Are you running with Recalbox 7.1 ?
Thanks for your great support ...

Custom videos works ! It's not the good format (my 19" screens are 1280x1024. 4:3 or 5:4 ratio ?) it's compressed, but can see the video on my both screens.
@ian57, could you please share the package you mentioned ?
Thanks for your great support.
@MadCow which package ?
@ian57 I think he means the package I metionned. Is it allowed to share boot videos here ?
@leahcim66 Yes I thinks so if there are not copyrigthed.
Original bootvideos converted to 720p + 5 bootvideos I made myself.
@leahcim66 I saw the "Universal" intro. Which soft did you use? I made this one using Blender : https://mega.nz/file/30kVECyb#_aefzs-WFwMmQfI8-U5OC4JoVKspfCbPZItVy5TYMZ8
