Re: Newbie questions

I got my Mister connected to the network via a WiFi dongle. It seems to work fine, except when I run the update.sh script, it disconnects from the network at some point. Is this expected? If not, is there any way to track down why? in Scripts/update.ini set: PARALLEL_UPDATE="false" I had ...

Re: Correct video resolution for HDMI TV

The video_mode-option sets a resolution and refresh rate for both, PAL and NTSC. video_mode_ntsc and video_mode_pal set different resolutions/refresh rates for PAL and NTSC. You will notice that when in a core you change between NTSC and PAL that your TV will adjust to a new refresh rate. This is wh...

Re: Correct video resolution for HDMI TV

720p@60 is what I would go for, yes (video_mode=0, which should the be default). Maybe it is worth setting different refresh rates for PAL/NTSC: video_mode_ntsc=0 video_mode_pal=7 And to try low latency vsync. Start with vsync_adjust=2 (single buffer = lowest display lag), but if it doesn't work at ...

Re: Correct video resolution for HDMI TV

HD Ready usually means that your TV can show up to 1280×720, but to be sure you would need to provide the exact model of your TV (there are many HDMI Sony Bravia TVs, it is a brand, not a product). Check the manual of your TV for the maximum resolution and refresh rate, you should find a perfect mat...

Re: names.txt, let's make one

Right; the script can be edited to not download new cores (which would do the trick once I deleted what I don't want). My request was more to manage everything and clean up the list.

28 characters should be more than enough unless people are wanting to include every variation of the name. For me, I like keeping it simple with names like Nintendo Famicom, Sega Mega CD, etc. It's a small thing but I do like that it keeps all the multi console hardware from companies like Sega, Ni...

From aesthetic point of view it's better to name cores shorter for better view. OSD can display up to ~28 chars, so you will see only part of name.

If you want to improve on the current I/O then it needs to have at least all functionality of the digital I/O, which includes the fan. 64MB RAM is deprecated if I remember right, so 32 or better 128MB RAM it is. Basically a digital I/O with builtin RTC, RAM and if possiple ADC-IN would be a true all...

Not yet. There were some commits to the SMS-Core recently, I would think that with the next release it will be added.

Re: I might have killed my Mister by updating? Has anybody seen this problem before?

It seems that the DE10-Nano is very sensitive to even the slightest dirt on the contacts of the Micro-SD. When my MiSTer won't boot after I took the SD out I just wipe the contacts and it usually works again. That is why I asked if you get any image on your screen, because if it is the contacts the...

Re: I might have killed my Mister by updating? Has anybody seen this problem before?

An update can hardly kill a DE10-Nano. You get an image via hdmi?

EDIT: Did you update on a regular note or was the last update months ago? What USB devices are you using? Afaik the alternate flashing LEDs are entirely normal and supposed to be that way when MiSTer booted into the menu core.

Re: MiSTer Filesystem read-only when FTP connects

Repartitioning, formatting, bad block scanning and setting up the SD card again with the latest installer, then copying everything back over except /linux fixed the issue.

Seems the file system got damaged at some point. Case closed.
