Different TV, No (HDMI) video - fredbmc - 02-26-2013

Applet TV 1. Moved box from Sharp Aquos which works well to Sony Wega. Bootup and access (ssh, smb) is fine, but I end up with black screen. Links below :

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.0.log | paste
DISPLAY=:0 /usr/lib/xbmc/xbmc-xrandr | paste

Thanks for any help!

edit: Sorry. Posted in wrong forum. Don't see where to move.

try running this from the console:

xrandr --output HDMI-0 --mode 0x1be
if that gives you output? ..lock that change in as the default refresh rate for XBMC

Thanks for the quick reply!

Nope, that didn't kick it in. Still no output. Bootup does show openelec logo, a couple of flashes, then nada.

OK! Following your lead and reading over:

I discovered the following mode works perfectly!

xrandr --output HDMI-0 --mode 0x1c0

<mode id="0x1c0" name="1280x720" w="1280" h="720" hz="60.00000" current="false" preferred="false"/>

Now, I have to figure out how to lock that change. Thanks!

I'd try 0x1c1 as well. From the output of the set it looks like you're in the US so 59.97Hz is a closer match for the NTSC content you're more likely to have. The settings can be locked by going to SETTINGS > System > Video output > Refresh Rate and selecting the 720p and 60/59.97Hz (or whatever is there).

Thanks chewitt. Yes, 0x1c1 works well. However, after setting via SETTINGS > System > Video output > and confirming resolution change, it doesn't lock thru reboot. Upon reboot reverts to:

<output name="HDMI-0" connected="true" w="1920" h="1080" x="0" y="0" wmm="0" hmm="0">
<mode id="0x1bd" name="1920x1080" w="1920" h="1080" hz="30.02669" current="true" preferred="true"/>

root ~ # xrandr --output HDMI-0 --mode 0x1c1
fixes it every time. Is there another way to make it stick?

Thanks for your help!
