I plugged my RPi into my TV with the yellow video cable, and I can't change the resolution to see the whole screen. Does anyone know how to change the settings?

Composite video does not support changing the video mode.
For PAL you're stuck with 576i and for NTSC 480i

i.e normal TV modes.

For other resolutions you must utilize HDMI.
Raspberry Pi - finally a worthy replacement for A500!!!

It will look pretty bad, but can you can make the pixels "smaller" by changing the framebuffer dimensions

Code: Select all

{sig} Setup: Original version Raspberry Pi (B, rev1, 256MB), Dell 2001FP monitor (1600x1200), 8GB Class 4 SD Card with Raspbian and XBMC, DD-WRT wireless bridge

Return to “Debian”
