I just flashed last OSMC version in my raspi4 and it’s only working with HDMI… No matter what I do.
Once I boot official display it’s working, showing splash image and later it switches to hdmi, the funny thing is the touch screen is working .
If I switch sd card to another distro (arch, raspbian… ) it’s working flawless.
So any idea bout how to disable HDMI and use official 7" display (at this point my configs.txt are a complete mess?
Thx in advance.
There’s a bug which prevents headless (no HDMI) booting. You can resolve it by installing an update.
- Login via the command line
- Edit the file
- Add the following line:
deb http://apt.osmc.tv buster-devel main
- Run the following commands to update:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
- Your system should have have received the update.
Please see if the issue is resolved.
I also recommend you edit
/etc/apt/sources.list again and remove the line that you added after updating. This will return you to the normal update channel.
thank you for your help. Updated with buster-devel, rebooted but same behavior is there anything I should add (or deleted from config.txt) I changed many things there…
You shouldn’t need to customise config-user.txt at all, and you shouldn’t edit config.txt at all.
I tried to restore it, currently I have:
But still no luck.
Unfortunately I don’t have a Pi touchscreen to verify at my end.
Ok, somehow I ended in this link: [TESTING] Kodi v19 builds for Raspberry Pi 2/3/4 - #265 by grahamh
And changed that line in config.txt… Don’t know if it will help or what exactly I was changing but now the display is working…
I guess next upgrade could potentially overwrite my config.txt
Yes – it could.
You could put it in config-user.txt, but I don’t know if that option will supersede the config.txt option properly.
