Firstly while it's not related to the issues you are having, I think you
should consider buying an ATI video card. Every time I've used NVidia I've
had problems related to driver support. Currently I'm supporting a Windows
10 system that's reliably running with a 4K video card that would cause regular
system crashes in two different Linux systems.
The card was a relatively cheap option to work with a new motherboard,
the PC that you gave me failed, seemed like MB or CPU, income had
improved, enough, so I bought a MSI mainboard and Ryzen CPU, the board
had video connectors, but the CPU did not include the video. It was a
way to have video, without having any recommendation. I may buy
something else, but timing is a bit of a pain at the moment with not
supposed to travel.
To get it as I currently want, I just need to be able to tell the
video system to not use a uniform margin all round. The colour and
crispness is not an issue, although I would not rely on the colour for
photography, that is where I would look at the monitors you suggest.
It may be that I need to redo the initial probe and detection for
video configuration. As to TV at home, I have no free to air land
based signal, I have to use a VAST box (Viewer Assisted Satellite
Television), that is currently out of service. It is a UEC box,
actually a small Linux box, but without external access, it has an
ethernet port, but not enabled. If it continues to not work and I get
another, I would like to bring it to a LUV workshop for the curious.
Next what type of TV is this and how are you connecting to it? The above
blog post has some information on how TVs don't work in a sane manner, possibly
some of the issues in that post apply to you. If so you can probably get it
working properly (with some effort) but probably can't get the best
it is a 12V Wintal 24" LED TV, I bought from Radio Parts, I intend to
use it more with a Raspberry Pi to have a 12V system for mobile and
remote computing. When I go to various events demonstrating
handspinning, I would like to have computing facility, and the
capacity to play a video of what I do when I have to go to the toilet
or get lunch.
Here's a 24" FullHD monitor for $160 plus postage. That should just work
for the full screen display and not look fuzzy. Then you can have TV playing as
well while you look at your computer during ad breaks. ;)
Here's a 24" 2560*1440 monitor for $280.
I am also running into another issue, a Debian bug with scanning. I
have been reading up, but the behaviour is puzzling. SimpleScan works,
but scanimage and the other command linme tools do not see the
scanner, but it is there when I do lsusb. The scanner is a Canon LIDE
210, and it works well on the out of date Debian on the Acer
TravelMate 3230. I appear to have appropriate permissions and such,
but some detail is still out of place. I may try adding myself to the
scanner group, but that should not be necessary. I want to use
scanimage as I can increment an index number for each page the way I
want, which is not the way SimpleScan does.
