Been reading through the forum about how to run CE /LE on a headless box and I’ve seen people saying your requjired to copy /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/disp_cap to /storage/.config
Which is the preferred method and why?
Somebody has been feeding you bodge information as storing in the
.config directory won’t do anything.
You can see
here where the file should be saved.
This is one place I saw about using the .config directory. Even you mention it too.
You should be able to do that. I used the following method on LE7, but I haven’t tried it on CE.
cat /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/disp_cap > /storage/.kodi/userdata/disp_cap
This will create a copy of the disp_cap in your Configfiles folder.
Use Notepad++ (or edit from SSH) to edit that file and add the resolution/refresh rates you want, according to the format.
*edit* see post below.
This will tie the disp_cap you created to the one in amhdmitx folder, and Kodi will use that for it…
Apologies for that but I copied the text from
@TheCoolest without looking at what he wrote properly.
Updated the post.
Great, glad that is now cleared up.
