In the available documentation via the web, the video output from the HDMI connector is listed as;
1 x HDMI support up to 1080P@30FPS
Where is this so I can fix it. It should be 1080p60.
Is this correct?
Some computer monitors won’t do 30 frames per second. For example, my older ViewSonic monitor is limited to 50 - 76 frames per second. Thus, the BeagleV board would not work on it.
That said, this looks like a wonderful board, and one I will follow it’s progress.
That smells like the old wiki for the “BeagleBone”… The HDMI spec’s
of the “BeagleV” has not been officially released yet.
Sure, but we can check with the design and designers. I think it could be higher in the production version. The primary limitation is the use of a parallel LCD interface and an HDMI framer device, a TDA19988. Now do you know why the limitation sounds familiar?
The DSI can output 4K@30fps.
I checked with the designers and tweeted about this at:
Hi Drew, I have the same query. I have one of these dope development boards and enjoying working on it to the fullest! I recently bought a new dell monitor which has a resolution of 1920x1080@60fps. Unfortunately, when i flashed the latest fedora image 2021-July-7:Fedora-riscv64-vic7100-xfce-dev-Rawhide-20210707.n.0-sda.raw.zst, and connected the board to the monitor via HDMI, my monitor complains that framebuffer driver in this fedora image supports only 1920x1080@30fps and the fedora GUI won’t come. But when i tried the same image on my android tv hooked up via HDMI, it is working correctly and i am getting the GUI. To find a fix i digged deep into the starfive framebuffer driver and also the tda19988 driver and datasheet and it looks like the chip supports 1920x1080@60fps. Any workarounds for the same? I am trying to find a way to add 60fps support in the FB driver. As i purchased this monitor for BeagleV particularly, let me know if you have any suggestions.
