recalbox keeps waking from standby

  • I've noticed a strange behaviour on my recalbox (rasp 2, latest beta) when I leave it alone it enters standby but periodically (I would say every 10minutes or so) it wakes up (the screen turns on) for a minute and then goes in stand by again. How can I find what causes this?

    Maybe your problem is with your tv... can you try on another one?

  • @paradadf my tv? Actually I am using an IPad 2 screen with a controller. I will try with another monitor.
    BTW Could it be possible to turn off the monitor when in standby rather than simply dim it or turn thr screen black?

  • So you're using the virtual gamepad from your tablet ? That might bebthe origin of the problem

    Concerning turning off the screen, that could be possible. I found how to do it for pi. The problem is that we need something that would also work on odroid and PC

  • Nope, sorry I wasn't clear. I've attached the Raspberry PI to a VS Display LCD controller via HDMI, the controller is attached to an iPad2 LCD display.

    Now, since I have the PI, could you tell me how to turn off the screen?

    Thanks for your help.

  • You have to ssh :
    vcgencmd display_power 0 Turns off video output.
    vcgencmd display_power 1 Turns on video output.

    Couldn't try, but the source is reliable

  • sorry I don't get it. I would like to have the PI automatically turn off the screen instead of the screensaver (simply dim it or go black without turning the screen off).

  • @mc9625 then you need to edit the code of emulationstation.
