the proper video= setting for the TI pico projector?

movin' on, i hooked up my TI DLP pico projector to my board running
embinux's android, and i'm wondering what the proper video= settings
are for this.

  over at koen's blog, he provides the bootargs for angstrom:

console=ttyS2,115200n8 console=tty0 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootwait
rootfstype=ext3 video=omapfb:vram:2M,vram:4M,mode:640x480@60

  the default android video settings are:


  so ... speaking as someone who's still figuring out that boot-time
parm, what would make sense for android for the pico? what's with the
"vram" values in the angstrom boot parms? and do i need that
"mode=dvi" component since i'm obviously connecting with the
HDMI-format port.


As I recall, the ‘video’ boot line argument changed in 2.6.29.

What you are seeing is one of the big differences between Angstrom and Android on the Beagleboard.

Angstrom is ‘cutting edge’ and Android is ‘stable’. :slight_smile:

i assume you saw koen's post where the 2.6.29 angstrom uimage is all
ready for the pico projector, so i don't need to mess with that.
makes my life easier. and i'm going to document all of this here:

feel free to play along and suggest additions. i've just started.


whoops, that was meant just for dan, sorry. too early. not enough
