I have a Raspberry PI and a 1280x320 pixels ultra wide LCD. Is it possible to have a custom resolution for this to make work correctly?

Thank you.


There is a parameter in config.txt that can be used for just this purpose:

hdmi_cvt=<width> <height> <framerate> <aspect> <margins> <interlace> <rb>
width        width in pixels
height       height in pixels
framerate    framerate in Hz
aspect       aspect ratio 1=4:3, 2=14:9, 3=16:9, 4=5:4, 5=16:10, 6=15:9
margins      0=margins disabled, 1=margins enabled
interlace    0=progressive, 1=interlaced
rb           0=normal, 1=reduced blanking

So nano /boot/config.txt and append something like:

hdmi_cvt 1280 320 60

Then reboot and you should have it!

  • So just add this line? hdmi_cvt 1280 320 60 – user1319668 Apr 27 '17 at 16:19
  • I've done this but it doesn't output anything: hdmi_force_hotplug=1 hdmi_group=2 hdmi_mode=1 hdmi_mode=87 hdmi_cvt 1280 320 60 6 0 0 0 – user1319668 Apr 27 '17 at 22:00

Resolution set to 1920x480 pixels and this resolves the issue I've been having.
