[RESOLVED]Composite video on R pi model b
I'm not able to get composite video to work on Recalbox using the composite video port on the rpi model b (original). I have tried editing the config.txt file to comment hdmi lines and to enable sdtv_mode=2 and to add hdmi_ignore_hotplug = 1 but I dont get a picture and the pi wont boot so I have to format the card to get it working again. I have tried a standard composite lead in the yellow socket on r pi and I have tried a 3.5mm jack to rca cable also. What am I doing wrong?
I asume that you have to use the yellow socket. I have a raspberry pi 2. My file /boot/config.txt looks lite this to use the composite output:
# uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default "safe" mode #hdmi_safe=1 disable_overscan=0 # uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (this will force VGA) #hdmi_group=1 #hdmi_mode=1 # comment to get jack audio #hdmi_drive=2 #config_hdmi_boost=0 #hdmi_force_hotplug=0 # uncomment to ignore hdmi plug hdmi_ignore_hotplug=1 # uncomment for composite PAL sdtv_mode=2 # Overclock gpu_mem=512 avoid_safe_mode=1 kernel=zImage # NOOBS Auto-generated Settings: #hdmi_force_hotplug=1 #config_hdmi_boost=4 #overscan_left=24 #overscan_right=24 #overscan_top=16 #overscan_bottom=16 disable_overscan=0 overscan_scale=1
You have to comment some lines (with hdmi mention). Do you notice some differences with yours?
Thanks I checked your settings and commented out the noobs section hdmi settings and its now working.
