I'm trying to experiment with the vc_tvservice APIs and the tvservice binary provided itself, and I've noticed that when you turn the screen off and on again like so:
That when the monitor is turned back on by the last command, the console does not re-appear and you are left at a blank screen with an invisible console (it is still there though, you can execute other commands, just not see them). I've also tried running some of the OpenMax? (OMX) demos such as hello_triangle which displays a black cube with no textures either - very odd. Accessing video on the display is okay though without glitches, omxplayer looks quite good infact without the console behind it.
Code: Select all
/opt/vc/bin/tvservice -o /opt/vc/bin/tvservice -p
How can you get the console to re-appear after turning it on, and what is the proper way of making it disappear for example for playing videos?
