Orangepi pc image comes out of the screen Ropi 4.1
#1
first of all I apologize for my bad english I am using a translator.
I am using an orange pi pc with Ropi 4.1 connected by hdmi and the image looks bigger than the screen even in 800x600.
I hope you can help me, thanks.

Hi Julio, this is the so called 'Overscan', I'm having the same problem here. 

You can check your TV settings, it might allow to switch off overscan. If it doesn't allow it but has a VGA input, your only option is to get an HDMI > VGA converter.

Yes, spectre is correct about the hdmi overscan bug.

hello, sorry for the delay

I can not turn off the overscan.
It's not a TV problem since u-boot looks good like in the video

The problem happens after that.

Not very helpful here but I wonder what's the resolution of the U-Boot screen because my TV isn't showing it at all. The first thing I'm seeing after switching on my OPIPC is the Retrorangepi boot screen.

it's 1920x1080. In my setup, it immediately changes to 1280x720, because it's set to 720p. So, if your screen is not compliant, you could maybe try to change with 'sudo h3disp'. Backup /boot/script.bin so you can replace if something goes wrong , like a blank screen caused by a non compliant resolution

Subject resolved, I write this in case someone happens.
Extract the sctipt.bin from some other image or download these

rename it and copy it to EMMC
Start Ropi and go.

those script.bin files are not recommended since they have old overvolt/overclock settings. We'll check the syntax to see how we can use the optimal settings to avoid overscan without risking the board due to overheat

you're right, in the end reinstall Ropi configure the resolution and it worked.
I do not know if it was the hdmi cable or something else, but it works with the original script.bin.
