How to override guisettings.xml resolution in advancedsettings.xml
#1
Hi,

I'm trying to get my video calibration to 'stick' (overscan specifically) because it gets lost after reboots sometimes. According to the docs I can put directives from guisettings.xml into advancedsettings.xml.

I've tried adding the following but it doesn't seem to take effect. The xbmc log doesn't mention any errors.

Any ideas?

Thanks...

<resolution>
<description>1280x720 @ 60.00 - Full Screen</description>
<subtitles>685</subtitles>
<pixelratio>0.979858</pixelratio>
<refreshrate>60.000000</refreshrate>
<output>default</output>
<xrandrid>0x13d</xrandrid>
<overscan>
<left>26</left>
<top>16</top>
<right>1254</right>
<bottom>703</bottom>
</overscan>
</resolution>

Try enclosing your code inside

<resolutions>
...
</resolutions>

That is,

<resolutions>
<resolution>
<description>1280x720 @ 60.00 - Full Screen</description>
<subtitles>685</subtitles>
<pixelratio>0.979858</pixelratio>
<refreshrate>60.000000</refreshrate>
<output>default</output>
<xrandrid>0x13d</xrandrid>
<overscan>
<left>26</left>
<top>16</top>
<right>1254</right>
<bottom>703</bottom>
</overscan>
</resolution>
</resolutions>

Hi,
I'm having the same problem. My resolution settings in advancedsettings.xml are being ignored and those in guisettings.xml are being used instead. Other settings in advancedsettings.xml are being applied correctly including others that would normally be in guisettings.xml

Here is the relevent entry from advancedsetting.xml:
Code:
<resolutions>
        <resolution>
            <description>1920x1080 @ 50.00 - Full Screen</description>
            <subtitles>1030</subtitles>
            <pixelratio>1.000000</pixelratio>
            <refreshrate>50.000000</refreshrate>
            <output>default</output>
            <xrandrid>0x164</xrandrid>
            <overscan>
                <left>98</left>
                <top>34</top>
                <right>1882</right>
                <bottom>1056</bottom>
            </overscan>
        </resolution>
    </resolutions>
and a full debug log:here

Doesn't seem to shed much light as far as I can see. In fact it doesn't say anything at all about resolutions etc.

Any help appreciated.
