Did you enable composite video out in your boot/config file?

RE: No video/audio via RCA - Added by I Dove about 5 years ago

No I didn't,
where and how to do it?

What is correct filename? What to edit?

Tnx.

You need access to your config.txt file either through SSH/SCP or even putting the SD Card into the computer and adding these lines under Movian's config:
sdtv_mode=

And the modes are:
sdtv_mode=0 Normal NTSC
sdtv_mode=1 Japanese version of NTSC – no pedestal
sdtv_mode=2 Normal PAL
sdtv_mode=3 Brazilian version of PAL – 525/60 rather than 625/50, different subcarrier

So I would choose =0 because I am in the USA and use NTSC, but if you are PAL then I would use =2.

Also add this line hdmi_ignore_hotplug=1 if you are not planning on using HDMI. Comment it out if you need to use it in the future.

Give that a try and let me know if it helps you? :)

Hi mr9,
Thanks for your answer. I have the same problem.
I have changed the config.txt file like this (and attach): #
  1. Anything between the 'BEGIN SHOWTIME CONFIG' and 'END SHOWTIME CONFIG'
  2. may be modified by Showtime itself. Avoid putting your own config there #
  1. BEGIN SHOWTIME CONFIG
    start_file=start_x.elf
    fixup_file=fixup_x.elf
    gpu_mem=192
    sdtv_mode=2
    hdmi_ignore_hotplug=1
    boot_delay=1
    disable_splash=1
  2. END SHOWTIME CONFIG

But no positive results. No video on RCA after boot.. What I was mistaken in?
I will be very grateful for your help

Thank you mr 9,
but it doesn't work for me either.
I also try to add sdtv_mode = 2 and hdmi_ignore_hotplug=1

All I can get and see is boot time, when movian is started, screen turn off.
Tnx.

I'm curious if my config works please download it and replace your file with it using WinSCP or other FTP tool and let me know?
