Max resolution
« on: January 17, 2022, 12:48:08 AM »
We have PiCore up and running booting from TFTP. We also want to connect it with a large TV with a resolution of 3840 x 1600. The problem now is that the TV has black borders at the left and the right. How can we fix this?

Hi wotikar
I couldn't tell you. You did not bother to specify which version of piCore you are running and under which architecture.
What do these commands report:
Code: [Select]
uname -r
version

Hi wotikar
... 5.10.3-tinycore ...
That's not a pi, that's an  x86  response.

xrandr is part of  Xorg-7.7-bin.tcz  under  x86.
