Re: Raspberry Pi3 Black screen + cursor (stuck)

I'm having this same problem, and what I discovered is having an "autostart" file at all in /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/ - even if the file is empty causes this black screen problem. So remove your "autostart" file and you should be good. But I hope someone will come in and tell us how to use...

Re: Driver installation impossible? RTL8812AU

I have updated the script so hopefully it is now working OK. MrEngman Hi again. In reference to my last post, I was able to use your install-wifi script for the 8812au driver after an rpi-update. I can't connect to a wifi network, but the driver does seem to be there and working so thank you! :)

Default recommended pi 2 overclock settings

Hi folks It used to be at one time that recommended overclocks were in the default config.txt, but that seems like it might not be the case. Most references now point to using rpi-config, but there's also no documentation that I can find to say what settings that sets currently. The installation tha...

Both are pi2's v1.1. I'm going to test with a new raspbian image today for another data point, but I tried a virgin libreelec image yesterday, and it worked with mine and didn't with theirs.

Screen blank but weird presentation

Hi folks

I have a pi 2 and SD that just will not activate my monitor or TV.
If I put the SD into a different pi 2, it works fine.
If i put a different SD and OS install into the "problem" pi it works too.

I don't understand what the commonality is here, can anyone fill me in?

thanks

Did you read the rest of this thread before posting? There is a link that explains the

Code: Select all

vcgencmd get_throttled
command and its output, which includes a latched low-voltage flag.
Apparently not enough, thanks for explaining, this does exactly what I needed.

Is the RTL8811AU chipset a good choice if I want to make an access point out of a pi? The other use would be with libre elec just as a client. thanks
