S-Video

HI!

I would like to know if it is possible to work with beagleboard
without DVI at first, using s-video out instead. My problem is i have
ordered a beagleboard but i have no digital screen...

Thanks a lot!

What does "echo 'tv' > /sys/class/display_control/omap_disp_control/video1"
do? Some kind of dual-head setup? Does beagleboard support PAL and NTSC, are
there different versions for different setups or can you switch in software?
I too have no digital display...

Hi Ed,

What does “echo ‘tv’ > /sys/class/display_control/omap_disp_control/video1”
do? Some kind of dual-head setup?

OMAP Display subsystem has 3 pipelines that can be routed to either LCD/DVI or S-Video, with this command we route Video1 pipeline to S-video

Does beagleboard support PAL and NTSC, are
there different versions for different setups or can you switch in software?

Yes, there is software support for switching between PAL and NTSC.

echo ‘NTSC_M’ > /sys/class/display_control/omap_disp_control/tv_std should change the mode.
