I’ve got a weird problem that I did not have initially but I suspect it came either after an rpi-update or after an “apt-get dist-upgrade”. I’ve also at some point done a “download binaries” i retropie-setup.sh.
The SD card was initially created using the 2.3 image.
I’ve played a lot of Zelda (NES) version without this happening but now it happens in several (all?) emulators so something I’ve done must have changed this behavior.
What happens is that the screen goes totally blank. I’ve removed overclocking, compiled RetroArch from sources, changed controller, power supply, HDMI cable, video modes etc. but nothing helped and today when it happened I had a wireless keyboard and mouse connected and guess what? Clicking the mouse buttons makes the screen turn on again. This problem that has been driving me crazy here seems to be some powersaving screenblanking kicking in.
I’ve checked /etc/kbd/config and powersaving seems to be turned off so that’s not it. Anyone experienced the same and found a solution? I’m going to keep looking and if I find out what’s causing it I will post the solution here.
