On-board keys mapping in Android

Menu Back Up Home Explorer

Using Multimedia Daughter Card (MDC) in Android (Relevant for Generation I EVMs)


Using DVI output instead of on-board LCD

If you need external display you need to enable additional kernel parameters:

  • omapdss.def_disp=dvi - this specifies to use DVI output instead on-board screen
  • omapfb.mode=dvi:720x480MR-16@60 - this specifies the resolution for external display

or (in older versions of u-Boot)

  • omap-dss.def_disp=dvi - this specifies to use DVI output instead on-board screen
  • omapfb.video_mode=720x480MR-16@60 - this specifies the resolution for external display

Here 720x480MR-16@60 is example value which means:

  • resolution - 720x480
  • M - always present
  • R - reduced blinking
  • 16 - 16 bits = 65,536 colours
  • @60 - 60 Hz

For more detailed info see modedb Documentation


Using TV output (S-Video) instead of on-board LCD

It is similar to usage of DVI output. If you want to use S-Video - make sure the cable is connected to EVM S-Video Output connector (not to confuse with Input!!!).

Pass following parameters in the command line:

  • omapdss.def_disp="tv"
  • omapfb.mode="tv:ntsc"

or (in older versions of u-Boot)

  • omap-dss.def_disp="tv"
  • omapfb.video_mode="tv:ntsc" or "tv:pal"


Known issues, limitations

RTC does not work on Rev D board, you can find more details here: Latest EVM does not have this limitation.
