    I am using the composite out and cannot change the screen resolution from wide screen to 4:3 so I cannot see what keys it is asking me to press during the initial controller setup. All I see is “YER 1,press…” What is the order that it asks to map the buttons?

    You need to specify 4:3 ratio in config.txt

    sudo nano /boot/config.txt

    See here for more info: http://elinux.org/RPiconfig#Video

    (specifically sdtv_aspect)

    Thank you! So I know I need to add the following lines of text in:
    sdtv_mode=0
    sdtv_aspect=1
    Should I delete the rest of the text in the file and just leave that? I removed the HDMI out so I will never use it. Here is a video of my project you can see that its 16:9 and not 4:3.

    No don’t delete anything in config.txt, it’s the Pi’s equivalent of the BIOS settings on a PC.
