TechLife Wrote:I know it is recommended to change the output to RGB from YPbPr or the colorspace will be wrong and you will have the pink screen issue. I was pretty sure I read at some point on Sam's forum that you also had to change the resolution there as well. As, "Crystalbuntu can only READ the vbios setting. Only the official OSX OS can change the vbios data."
Looks like you are correct about vbios. It will cause issues for anything outside of XBMC. While in XBMC it seems that another driver that over-rides vbios is used, which is why I never had an issue within XBMC.
Quote:When using the original ATV software, changing resolution and display format (YPrCr, RGB low, RGB high) will actually write this into the vbios. This causes the commandline of Linux (before starting XBMC, and after exiting XBMC) to use the format saved in Vbios, but when using the Nvidia Linux GFX driver (ie using XBMC), it will override the Vbios.
I'm not entirely sure, but it seems that from time to time the vbios (mostly pink screens) can creep into XBMC itself, although that might have just been a bug that has since been fixed.
I was not aware of this before, so thanks for the heads up. I'll add it to the XBMC wiki that people should still set things for their display in the native OS before installing Crystalbuntu. I really wish the Crystalbuntu info wasn't so scattered about.
No worries on the iOS thing ;)
