Analog video output
#1
Hello, I have just flashed the last beta version and I am facing some problems with it.

If I connect the raspberry to the TV by HDMI I can see the Openauto logo at startup and then the Openauto which is what it is expected to be. But for my car I use analog video output of raspberry pi 3b, so during the start up (longer than with HDMI) I see a black screen followed by a Linux Desktop with some banners but no Openauto app is open, so it does not work. I am sure that is should be a configuration problem but I do not know how to fix it. 
 
With the previous version I had the same start up that right now but after the banners the app started. Seeing that the correct behaviour is the one with HDMI I would like to know how to change it.
 
I am using a chinese radio with 7 inches and 800x480 resolution analog input.


Thanks.

This is known issue of the Raspberry PI firmware. According to the PI foundation github, they already did some fixes for the composite output. Please try to execute below commands

Quote:sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

If it will not help then you can try to install latest firmware by executing below command

Quote:sudo rpi-update

From our side we recommend to use HDMI->RCA converter as we did for our two reference projects. That is much more reliable.
