More On The /boot/config.txt File

by on Dec.29, 2013, under Installation, Troubleshooting

Well, I have the /boot/config.txt file working!

Once I figured out the problem was the /boot/config.txt, I knew I could go back to my original plan of using Occidentalis on the RPi.  So I re-flashed an 8Gb SD card with the Occidentalis image and mounted it on my laptop.

Navigating to the /boot/config.txt file, I made the following changes…

disable_overscan=0
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=46
hdmi_drive=2
config_hdmi_boost=4

Obviously, there is more in the file than that, but you don’t need me to post all the comment lines.  These are the lines that are left after removing all comment lines.

BE CAREFUL…Read the documentation for your specific monitor AND check out the config.txt resource link I posted in my previous article.  The group and mode lines are specific to your monitor’s resolution and timing.   See that previous article here.
