You did save the file after the change?
Sounds dumb but I did edit mine in the past with sudo nano, but forgot to save with ctrl-x I thought.
I found an old tutorial on my computer. From what I remember I did try this in the past on a spare sd card just to test, and from there things worked out well. Maybe you can try this aswell, just to be sure where to begin searching the base of the problem.
Maybe not, but I’ll post it anyway, hope it can help you a bit too.
Instuctions for others who may be experiencing the same issue with a TV and the Raspberry Pi:
1. Install a fresh image
2. start-up the Raspberry Pi and let it set itself up (normal set-up)
3. After you have gone through normal set-up:
a. Log-in as a normal user (debian image: pi)
b. Type the command: “sudo nano /boot/config.txt ”
c. Press enter
d. Type in: “hdmi_drive=2 ” [exactly as it is here]
e. Then press crtl + o
f. Press Enter
g. then press crtl + x
4. Restart using the command: ” sudo shutdown -r now ”

Having my b+ running with hq4x_lcd3 at the moment. The looks are personal ofcours but this one looks pretty good on my 55″ I think, and doesn’t really slow down the b+(medium overclocking) too bad with both nes and snes emulation imho.
Bit of a pity to read about the slowdowns; hoped to be able to get a 4 or 5xbrz plus some pretty scanlines on top of this on the RPi 2…richardpiParticipant03/04/2015 at 16:05Post count: 21
That should work. With my computer’s monitor with HDMI all worked immediately also, with pi b and b+.
When connecting to my Samsung HD tv, and the pi b everything was finetoo. With the pi b+ there also wasn’t any sound. Setting hdmi_drive=2 solved the issue immediately.
Some HDMI equipment interpretates the incoming signals a bit different than others. This setting solves the issue probably right away.richardpiParticipant03/02/2015 at 21:15Post count: 21
Hm, that’s really odd then indeed. Do you have on other lttp rom to try, maybe the rom is faulty, since it’s not occurring in other games as you said. I’m also playing lttp here on a b+, with retropie 2.3, without issues.
I read you’ve got a rpi2 so this afternoon I tested it on my rpi2 also to try to figure things out for you, but I haven’t got static.
One thing I do have, or better said, I don’t have, is music in the 1st room inside the castle. There should be music playing, but the music stops as soon as I enter the castle (via the little shrub).
Then, after going through the first door in the castle, music re appears and everything seems fine.
Tested this out, but this also occured with 2.3 on the b+, so there indeed can be something not 100% right in the rom itself.
Anyway hope you do have sort of an idea cause I can’t really try more from here. O, by the way, only sound settings in retropie I’ve changed from default is sound from 48kHz to 41kHz. Can try that too, does hurt if you do.
If you do not have another game to test I maybe can help if you want, send me a private message if you’d like any help with that.richardpiParticipant03/01/2015 at 22:26Post count: 21
Maybe use one of the retroarch shaders will do the job for you?richardpiParticipant03/01/2015 at 22:23Post count: 21richardpiParticipant02/28/2015 at 17:56Post count: 21richardpiParticipant02/27/2015 at 18:43Post count: 21
Be sure to go to file, and then site manager in filezilla to setup your raspberry connection end not just fill settings in the main filezilla screen since I couldn’t connect then.
I pick an sftp connection (if you’re not sure ssh is enabled, you can always enable ssh again on your raspberry to be sure, with enable ssh in your RPi. Use sudo raspi-config).
Then fill in the right IP adres of the pi.( ifconfig shows it, but also if you exit emulationstation it can be seen somewhere in the last couple if lines at your terminal).
Username pi and password raspberry, or username root for root access.
Add the configuration in your filezilla to re-use, and connect!
Should work then!richardpiParticipant02/24/2015 at 13:46Post count: 21richardpiParticipant02/23/2015 at 21:10Post count: 21
Thank you floob, I’ll take a look at it.
Also found couple of images look alike.
It’s somewhat the same, the close up one seems odd to me, really phosphor, what I do not see on the full picture…
The problem is, I’m not sure whether or not to add scanlines.
I’m close to a 55inch screen, and too much lines etc. Gives me headache! But smoothen things op with for instance like 4xbrz and without scanlines gives a nice cartoony look,but don’t know if that really takes the retro feel away. On the other hand that also looks very slick on big screen, more like the old ones are hd’ish almost…
I keep switching that’s why I ask more opinions also, besides I don’t have any xbrz for instance on my retropie..
That’s kind of why I’m looking for this bit of choose in the middle;smooth things big time with subtitle lines/raster because of the relatively large screen right in front of me.
Edit: I found this video doing somewhat what I mean, making thing smooth as can be, but with a bit of lines in it. Hope someone can tell me a way to get this with my RPi running retropie. I really search everything I can, but again I come out with a video from someone doing something…!?
Link didn’t work, sorry;richardpiParticipant02/23/2015 at 17:35Post count: 21richardpiParticipant02/17/2015 at 15:50Post count: 21
Since I’m from Holland I simply have mostly EUR roms, without ever even thought about it actually..
When I exit a game after playing I can barely see a very quick message appear saying something with ntsc just before hopping back into ES. Guess it is the emulator telling me something about the PAL or NTSC indeed, but can’t really read it cause it goes to fast.
After reading this post I keep asking myself if I’m doing right playing EUR roms also..richardpiParticipant02/14/2015 at 12:06Post count: 21
All info including partitions, mbr clean after formatting?
That was my problem by just formatting with osx disk utility. I had to specifically rebuild / clear mbr too. But unfortunately I don’t use Windows so sorry can’t help with that. Maybe Windows also had global formatting instructions in command line?
Wish I could help you but can only tell proper osx way…sorry.
Ends for me here. Further steps you named were correct. Only correctly burning retropie image and it should work.richardpiParticipant02/14/2015 at 11:20Post count: 21
I’m running the 2.3 here also, very happy with it also. Should not be the problem.
Tried rebuilding your SD-card?
I’ve got some weird issues with my old image too, but guess every case is different. In my case it seemed that the formatting of the SD card didn’t went as it should. Anyways, it’s worth trying to make a new image on your sd from scratch.
An unstable power source also produces strange behaviour or reboots as said here before. Maybe there’s an other one or you can borrow one to test if that’s the issue?richardpiParticipant02/13/2015 at 16:35Post count: 21richardpiParticipant02/13/2015 at 13:57Post count: 21
Thanks, this way works like a charm!
From what I experience, related to the questions a couple of replies above…
1. I’ve changed nothing and everything seems to work fine.
2. Sorry can’t help. I Use dd on Mac here.
3. Works perfectly when the steps are followed. Nice small class 10 card, don’t need much space this way ->cheap:-)
4. Sounds stupid, but when tweaking your system, I was looking for sudden files multiple times, since partially they’re on the sd, partially on the USB, ofcourse…
Again, above is just my personal experience after using this setup for about 3 weeks now.richardpiParticipant02/13/2015 at 13:42Post count: 21
I’m not into Linux/raspberry for so long, but this is how I did most of the job you’re asking for:
Edit your /boot/cmdline.txt and change the following things in the long line of commands you’ll see:
Replace “console=tty1” by “console=tty3” and lots of boot text disappears.
Add “loglevel=3” next to it.nothing that isn’t critical appears anymore.
If you don’t want the default cursor to appear, then also add “vt.global_cursor_default=0”.
save your cmdline.txt again and most of the text is gone, except for one block that shows up between the retropie and ES screens, but don’t yet know how to hide that.
Hope this helps you out. Or at least a tiny bit:-)
Edit* excuse me for reading the question incorrect. I thought you were looking to cleanly startup. However maybe this is a start to make less messages appear anyways..richardpiParticipant02/13/2015 at 13:28Post count: 21
Like Floob said,
When you configure your gamepad when starting Emulation Station it’ll be setup. just be sure it’s connected when you boot and ES automatically recognises it. You have to press some buttons and the configuration is saved to control ES.
I’ve got some aftermarket snes USB controllers, and here the menu you’re looking for appears by pressing start button also by default.
Then you can quit ES ( to command line ) , reboot your system, or, shutdown ES. In the last case your Pi will shutdown like it should.
Hope this somewhat helps or clarify things…
