Hi,

I have a raspberry po with openelec/xbmc. Works fine with my tv as long as I use 1280 * 720 as resolution. However it changes sometimes to 1280 * 768 and I lose my output on tv (resolution not supported).

Can I set it fix to 1280 * 720 and make sure it does not adapt, maybe via ssh?

Should be under /etc/X11.

Try -
locate xorg.conf
find / -name 'xorg.conf'

Open in new window
