    Hi All,

    Im using retropie to build a handheld gaming rig. I’m having some trouble getting the Atari Lynx emulator to out video. I’m suing an Adafruit 5 inch TFT which outputs at 800×480.

    I get sound, but no video when I load lynx roms. All other emulators don’t give me any problems.

    I have the following in my config.txt to force it toutput HDMI at this resoltion:

    # uncomment if you get no picture on HDMI for a default “safe” mode

    # uncomment this if your display has a black border of unused pixels visible
    # and your display can output without overscan

    # uncomment the following to adjust overscan. Use positive numbers if console
    # goes off screen, and negative if there is too much border

    # uncomment to force a console size. By default it will be display’s size minus
    # overscan.

    # uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

    # uncomment to force a specific HDMI mode (here we are forcing 800×480!)
    hdmi_cvt 800 480 60 6 0 0 0

    # uncomment to force a HDMI mode rather than DVI. This can make audio work in
    # DMT (computer monitor) modes

    # uncomment to increase signal to HDMI, if you have interference, blanking, or
    # no display

    # uncomment for composite PAL

    #uncomment to overclock the arm. 700 MHz is the default.

    # for more options see



    Are you using the 3.0 image? There were issues with the lynx emulator that were fixed. Update your setup script and reinstall lr-handy from binaries.



    Thanks for the reply. I am using the 3.0 image. Its good to know it wasn’t something I did wrong.



    Thanks for the advice. That seems to have fixed all my problems
