  • 4DPi-24-HAT How to switch between outputs (the HAT and normal HDMI)?

    Howdy folks,

    I'm writing today inquiring as to how one may switch between display modes. I know that the startx -- -layout TFT or HDMI command exists, but it does not function as I would like, and I'm looking for an alternative if it exists.

    When I use the aforementioned commands, it starts up a GUI, and I would rather it remain in the display mode currently enabled (CLI) or even allow an argument to choose the display mode. It also seems that the boot up sequence will not show on the HAT until it gets to user login.

    How can I switch between outputs, choosing whether it's GUI or CLI?
    How can I ensure that all boot output is on whichever monitor is selected to load at startup?

    I am using the most recent Raspbian release with NOOBS also on the card.
Working...
