Title: LCD tv can't dispaly avwizard 0810
Post by: jayzee on August 27, 2009, 12:51:02 pm

I am having problems setting up my panasonic 42" lcd on my core using 0810.

kubuntu installs fine and after I have run through the linuxmce setup and rebooted and the avwizard comes up, but it seems to not be at a resolution /refresh rate that the TV can handle.

I have tried with 0710 and the avwizard displays fine and allows me to chose different resolutions 1280x1024 seeming to be the best size and position even though I think the native TV resolution is 1360x768 ( which doesn't line up very well and the orbiter doesn;t fill the full screen)

How can I make the avwizard work so I can set up the screen and get a resoltion that works and then an orbiter that fills the screen?

I have managed to get 0810 install with a small monitor (1024X 768) and then changed the xorg.conf file and have managed to get the TV to display linuxmce but the orbiter doesn't fill the screen even though kubuntu does.

then on both screens I have tried I am still having the problem that the flicker slide show isn;t appearing properly behind the orbiter although it is there somewhere in the back ground.

are all my problems with the cores screen resolutions and orbiter/flicker slide show related?

would I be better off with the LCD TV setup on it's own MD to get the avwizard to work? (this would mean I wouldn't have to worry about the orbiter issue as it seem to be fine on MDs)

after searching a bit harder it seems I may have been on the right sort of lines with my updating of xorg.conf.

can I just use the xorg.conf and xorg.conf.pluto.avwizardr that works on 0710 and copy them over the ones on 0810?

when I have had a go at changing xorg.conf before I have just replace the modline in the current xorg to the one I though matched as per

at 1360x768 but I would rather go with 1280x1024 as that seem to be best on 0710

and then it seems I need to

"in the admin web site, go to advanced, config, devices, choose core, the core/hybrid, on-screen orbiter and update the PK_Size and Screen Width / Height values to match whatever resolution you forced in."

to get the orbiter going at the right size

and then it should work, right?
