Raspberry Pi HDMI notes

If the Pi won’t give out video or the video is in the wrong aspect or resolution then power off and unplug and replug the HDMI lead. This seems to fix it magically when no amount of rebooting will.

Also try swapping the HDMI at the TV end then replugging everything and reboot.


Also on the SD card look in config.txt and try adding this



Because the config_hdmi_boost,

Configures the signal strength of the HDMI interface. The default value is 0 and the maximum is 11.

The default value for the original Model B and A is 2. The default value for the Model B+ and all later models is 5.

If you are seeing HDMI issues (speckling, interference) then try 7. Very long HDMI cables may need up to 11, but values this high should not be used unless absolutely necessary.
