Need to rotate screen 180 degrees

Thu Jul 16, 2020 3:21 pm

I'm running 4.1 on a Pi4 and due to the way I need to mount the TV in the frame I need to rotate the screen 180 degrees clockwise.

My current config file is;
# 0 is the normal configuration. 1 is 90 degrees. 2 is 180 degress. 3 is 270 degrees.
display_rotate=3

What number do I need to use to make this happen?

Look at my avatar and picture me needing to make her head pointing down.

Well I'm at a complete loss on how to resolve this, I have changed the display_rotate= number to all settings (0, 1, 2, 3) and nothing.

Below is my config file, any ideas?


# For more options and information see
# http://rpf.io/configtxt
# Some settings may impact device functionality. See link above for details

[pi4]
disable_overscan=1
hdmi_drive=2
dtparam=audio=on
disable_splash=0
# 0 is the normal configuration. 1 is 90 degrees. 2 is 180 degress. 3 is 270 degrees.
display_rotate=1
framebuffer_depth=32
framebuffer_ignore_alpha=1
gpu_mem=512
#dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=82
config_hdmi_boost=4

[all]
disable_overscan=1
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
dtparam=audio=on
disable_splash=1

# 0 is the normal configuration. 1 is 90 degrees. 2 is 180 degress. 3 is 270 degrees.
display_rotate=1
framebuffer_depth=32
framebuffer_ignore_alpha=1
gpu_mem=256

The fix:

I needed to change both lines (one line in [pi4] and the other line in [all]
