Recalbox 7.0

"Mode Not Supported" /Set HDMI Output to 1080i?

  • Hello All,   I have a Samsung TV that sadly only has 2 HDMI ports, when I connect my recalbox to port 2, it says Mode not Supported. Doing some reading online, it seems this might be due to the fact that this is a "HD ready" and not "HD" TV, and needs the output from the HDMI port set to 1080i.   I am unsure how to do this. I have seen a lot of posts regarding how to change the display on the emulators, but not the main box itself. It appears that if an emulator is running - the HDMI can read the input and displays the picture.   Can someone guide me to the right direction? I think I have to edit something in the recalbox.conf file, but I am not exactly sure what.

    Try changing global.videomode= to your tv resolution.

  • Thanks paradadf, I worked it out, the file I want to edit is the config.txt not the recalboxconfig file as I thought. All I had to do was uncomment out the line about forcing HDMI safe. Once I did this, the system can now display on my HDMI port. yay!
