no video on my sony xbr CRT - g00f - 2011-07-02 19:49
Any suggestions on getting my atv1 running with HD on this TV.
I changed the res to 720p as I know this TV just does 1080i, so figured 720p would be good, but have spent last 24 hours trying and reading various forums to try and reset video in SSH...but nothing working when I try and change the setting in "guisettings" .
I got a cottage full of friends waiting for me to get the entertainment running.... .
Any advice appreciated.

to change the resolution (and output type i.e. hdmi, component, composite) you need to edit the mode lines in xorg.conf. Try this post:

I looked at this post and can't get much of it to run on the Crystalbuntu distribution, even just setting up the Options in the xorg.conf and rebooting and looking in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log, but never get the supported modes listed out.
The guide does say:
Were Running Nvidia Drivers 100.14.19, so we are well behind the curve and possibly supported Options capabilities ? Just to get Audio over HDMI (needed for TrueHD)!
I generally know that the screen supports 1920x1080_60_0, 1920x1080_24 & 1920x1080_30 mode lines, but all I get when I try is:
and it drops my resolution to 800x600 !
I have a post at the end of that thread, but no responses yet...

I logged in with atv/atv but I do not have permissions to build the spotify build that can be found here
Any help for a new guy?

I'm guessing you're going to need to sudo at least some of those commands, as they need root permissions to complete, mount comes to mind as one of them along with commands like chroot.

I did try to sudo as su but still no luck.

What errors are you receiving, and on what steps?

I logged into atv with atv/atv
I tried to run sudo -s wget http://download.stmlabs.com/atv-images/buildbox.tar.gz
and I got
[sudo] password for atv:
/usr/bin/wget: /usr/bin/wget: cannot execute binary file

When I tried the wget command as user atv, it started downloading just fine....as expected. There are some commands, as I pointed out earlier that need elevated privileges, but not all of them. You need to read up and actually understand what it is you want to do. The way you're trying to progress right now will, more than likely, end up with you breaking your setup.
