Rca /Av video Output on pi 3 with Emteria

edited November 2017 in Screens

I need to connected Emteria on pi3 with old crt tv using rca cable. I changed the resolution. To 800×600.It boot up and freeze at splash screen.


  • I have almost same probleme grey splash screen for me frozen also and when i plug hdmi already power on the boot work only on hdmi output

  • So RCA output does not work in Emteria ? ,
    if i change some setting does it gonna work ?

  • I really don't know waiting for answer also

  • Unfortunately, we have no hardware here to test the RCA connection. We will be glad to look into it, but it will take some time until we have a setup. I recommend switching to CSI / HDMI.

  • Hi Kalkov I really need rca working i did two test with the same config on my pi2 with linux and pi3 with android. So pi2 work fine, pi3 pre-boot work on rca with the good config.txt file but when emteria os boot the screen become grey and nothing happen till I plug hdmi cable. So when i plug hdmi screen become black and tv say no source so if I switch to my hdmi input emteria boot, so it looks like emteria wait absolutely for hdmi to boot, please perform and fix this fonctionality, i really need it on my car i don't have hdmi. Also with hdmi to rca converter quality is too bad than real rca signal.

    Thanks in advance.

  • good config.txt can u provide the settings

  • hi, dear emteria plz share details for emteria boot up with crt tv

  • Hi,
    I cannot use Emteria Android in a CRT TV, but I can use it with Lineage OS 16.0 provided by konstakang.com.

    Config.txt is not possible to setup for CRT with Emteria Androd. If you don't have a CRT screen to solve the problem you can easily find a used one in Facebook Market or something like that for free or almost for free. Cables can be less than 5 € thru Ebay.

    Paying a subscription for something that use to be for free (Android) and does not work is not fair. If there is another Android version from another provider that does it for free makes paying even more unfair.
