    For N64 emulators, when I set the video mode to CEA1 (640×480), my TV says the video input is actually 720×480 and I get no video, only a black screen. I can still hear audio.
    For N64, I would especially like to use video mode CEA1 for the performance gains, but I can’t seem to get around this.
    Has anyone else had issues with only getting a black screen when using video mode CEA1?
    I’ve been searching through the wiki and forums for a solution with no luck.

    I’m using RetroPie v3.6 on a Raspberry Pi 3 connecting to an HD TV via HDMI. Other devices that output at 640×480 seem to work fine on my TV.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
