Hello all: I am using a non-HD UK TV as the display for my R-Pi, through the RCA jack into the "video" input of the TV unit. I have changed the default settings from NTSC to PAL by creating a config.txt file, and have adjusted the "overscan" left, right, top and bottom boundaries to suit my TV (as described in the Wiki).
The problem is that the screen resolution is very poor, and the refresh rate is too slow. Even the startup text is difficult to read, and websites are unreadable. Can anybody advise how to change the settings, please?
Should I expect the R-Pi to deliver sound through the PAL TV?
I have looked at the monitor settings under the "startx" graphical interface (preferences), and can only see a choice between "Auto" and "720 x 576" resolution and between "Auto" and "0.0" refresh rate (it makes no difference which option is selected). I'm not even sure if these correspond with my actual screen settings.
Please tell me if you need any other relevant information to identify the problem. Thank you.
