Thanks to help received in here, I was able to get RCA video out of my Raspberry Pi 1 version B with NOOBS.
With Raspian (installed via NOOBS) all I had to do was editing the config.txt file to comment out
hdmi_force_hotplug=1 and uncomment
sdtv_mode=2 lines. All is fine and dandy. After that, Raspian was able to show the desktop on TV.
Now, OpenELEC with Kodi is a different beast. I was able to log in via SSH to modify both config.txt files (the one in boot and the one in boot-rp1) to reflect the same changes as above but...
No video output at all. I get a slight flicker at boot, I can hear sound but... the screen is dark.
Even if I add
I though I verified the files have been changed (even the one that can be seen from the recovery menu of Noobs reflects such changes).
But...where is the right config.txt for OpenELEC? There is one each in
The first two I was able to modify via SSH to carry the following lines (I also made sure there were no conflicting directives after them).
# hdmi_force_hotplug=1 hdmi_ignore_hotplug=1 sdtv_mode=2
But the one in /flash/boot/ is still carrying
hdmi_force_hotplug=1 and has the
sdtv_mode=2 commented out. So I guess that's the one I should be modifying. But if I try nano complains the file system is write only.
Should I change permission for the whole directory, first, or are there more hoops I should be jumping into?
Why should I be jumping through all these hoops? Shouldn't NOOBS be avoiding this by allowing simple switching between devices?
EDITed to remove the long config.txt file, since the problem seems to be elsewhere now. (file can still be seen in the edit history).
