Rpi display via rca connector

Mon Jan 26, 2015 8:18 am

good day. I just installed an os to my rpi. It is raspbian os. I set it up using my hdtv via hdmi as its display. Now i want to connect it to my crt tv. The crt tv doesnt have a hdmi input, it only has rca component. But after plugging my rpi using rca, i dont have any display for my tv. Can someone help me. Thank you.

Model of RPi ? A, B, A+ or B+

Did you use NOOBS to install Raspbian ?

How to change display output modes

By default, NOOBS will output over HDMI at your display’s preferred resolution, even if no HDMI display is connected. If you do not see any output on your HDMI display or are using the composite output, press 1, 2, 3 or 4 on your keyboard to select HDMI preferred mode, HDMI safe mode, composite PAL mode or composite NTSC mode respectively.

From https://github.com/raspberrypi/noobs/ -
The NOOBS interface provides the following functionality:

Install: Installs the selected OSes onto your SD card. Changing this selection erases all OSes currently installed.
[[ some options removed for clarity ]]
Display Mode Selection: By default, NOOBS will output over HDMI at your display's preferred resolution, even if no HDMI display is connected. If you do not see any output on your HDMI display or are using the composite output, press 1, 2, 3 or 4 on your keyboard to select HDMI preferred mode, HDMI safe mode, composite PAL mode or composite NTSC mode respectively.

Pressing 1,2,3,4 cannot solve the problem. I also try editing the

Code: Select all

recovery.cmdline
but still nothing happened.
