I have tried everything but not sure why Volumio is not taking the full screen on my 4K Television. I have attached some images for reference.
I am currently using Allo Boss 2 Signature Player which has HDMI output which support upto 4K 60 FPS and I am using a Mini HDMI Cable for the same but not sure what is going wrong that I am not able to get the full screen and by the way this is happening for both Volumio as well as Moode. Kindly suggest. I have already tried this –
sudo nano /boot/userconfig.txt
Add to the bottom:
CTRL + X
the peppy plugin has a max layout 1920 x 1080
that’s not a 4k resolution that’s why you don’t have a filled screen…
I would like to share here my experiences with the FullHD AMOLED display from waveshare with VOLUMIO.
The point is, it’s a 1080x1920 display and not a 1920x1080. I have learned, that’s not the same. Per default this display runs in portrait mode an not in landscape. You can rotate it 90 degree, but it’s not a hardware rotation, it’s a hard work for the GPU to rotate all content. A smooth scrolling is not more possible with chromium.
I have found some performance optimizations for…
to enable 4k you have to have this in /boot/config.txt
nice that you found it my resolution goes till 1920 x 1080 so could not test any.
If you didn’t want to force 60hz 4k just to get the screen right on a 4k tv you can just add
to your /boot/config.txt.
