IF the resolution is too high and you can barely see the text, this is the fix.

I was able to set the resolution with a bootparameter in /etc/default/grub but when the tty loads, it gets overriden by something.
Then I found this: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issu ... -368846000 and I added / changed this:

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/default/grub
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset"
GRUB_GFXMODE=800x600
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep

then do: sudo update-grub and reboot.
Change GRUB_GFXMODE= to your desired resolution.
It worked for me :slight_smile:

edit: Here a guide how to find out working resolutions for your TV:
