Post by Shinobi » Wed 26 Dec 2018 20:20

Hi everyone.

Does someone knows how to use the retrostone connection the hdmi to a Dell monitor screen? I have tried, but doesn't recognise.
also does it also possible to keep hdmi as a main display? im not interest of switching all the time from LCD to HDMI, since im not using the main lcd display of the retrostone.

Hi Shinobi,
Default setting is HDMI first and if there is no HDMI connected, signal goes on composite.
For more details you can check Section C :

If it does not work with your HDMI screen it might be specific to your display. Please can you try with another TV or LCD?
I have such a LCD from samsung that does not recognize retrostone. I am not sure why but I think it's a HPD (hot plug detect) between some LCD and armbian.

The best workaround I found for this kind of LCD is to use a VGA to HDMI adapter and connect to the LCD with VGA. This force the detection.
