Re: STICKY: HOWTO: Create Custom HDMI modes

Folks, Thanks for the input. I have just received the driver board for my second display which is from a 15" Aluminium PowerBook G4. The displays have, allegedly, the same resolution. However, the later panel requires different driver hardware and this hardware includes an HDMI connector. On a quick...

Re: STICKY: HOWTO: Create Custom HDMI modes

I'm using the standard config.txt settings - I have tried to set the resolution to 1280x854 but it doesn't seem to do anything - so tried 1280x900 and 1280x800 but the position has not improved. I think that there must be some setting to give actual 1280x854 out of the device or the display will not...

Re: STICKY: Setting up HDMI output when video output is wrong.

Any ideas how I address a 1280x854 display? I have an ex-Apple PowerBook Titanium display panel with a VGA adapter being driven through an HDMI to VGA adapter as a display but the RPi doesn't really drive it properly - there is some munging of the characters and of course the resolution is wrong in ...

Re: STICKY: HOWTO: Create Custom HDMI modes

Right, I know that there has been a lot of traffic on this topic but I may have a new query (or not)... I am trying to re-use an old Apple PowerBook Titanium LCD panel. It has a VGA input and the native resolution is 1280x854 at 24 bits per pixel. Any thoughts as to the config.txt configuration for ...

Re: MATLAB

Octave would be my tool of choice for this device - it is available at source code level and the compilers are already installed - so it should be simple enough to run the make file. There are many many sources of help for MATLAB users wishing to divest themselves of the burden of a licence fee to t...

Re: Running headless - debian Squeeze

I'll give that a try. I don't have a large number of HDMI monitors lying around so remote communication as the norm will not be a major issue.

Thank you for your reply - I will follow up with results.

Running headless - debian Squeeze

Folks, My RPi is running debian squeeze - which seems to run well. I have compiled an application which requires a display - and to be honest, I don't want to have to modify it to run with no display - and I want to run it without a display but where the display can be connected remotely from time t...
