That would be cool, at least it would be something similar to retropie.

Edit: i reflashed the sd card and it worked on my 4k tv once. i rebooted and now there is still no signal... i am confused why it worked once. power supply is 2.5a/5v.

hi everyone,

First, thank you all for your hard work and the awesome images that you guys provided. I got one problem that maybe you guys can help me with.

When I start the retropie V0.6.5, it works on all my screens, 720P, 1080P, even VGA with hdmi adapter, except my 4K 240Hz TV. It says no signal all the time...

When I do a flash with TinkerOs 2.0.5, it does boot on my 4k TV. But when I flash to the ROTT 0.6.5 or the CRASH version, no signal on the 4k tv, but works flawless on all the 5 screens I tryed...

I tried to modify (uncomment) the config file with:
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
hdmi_drive=2
config_hdmi_boost=4
disable_overscan=1

Did try different combinations of that, also i tryed to switch resolution with what is below, but doesn't seems to actually change it:
framebuffer_width=**** tryed a few
framebuffer_height=**** tryed a few

or HDMI_CVT = **** **** ** tryed a few

I also tryed:
hdmi_safe=1

I think that anything I change doesn't have any effect when I reboot. Did I miss anything ? It does work everywhere except on my 4k TV... I also did try on my mom's 4k TV and i get no signal either...

Regards,
