I just successfully installed this mod on KA1. I think the trick after step 3 is directly delete all code in the config file, then do step 4 and 5. It will save time.

The screensaver hack is broken in the new firmware update. I can get the scanlines but no screensaver.

I've tried resetting the hack multiple times and it produces scanlines and saves them but the image never shows.

I'll try resetting the values again and report back.

EDIT: OMG, it finally worked. I tried deleting the scanline settings and redetecting them but that didn't work. I then uninstalled and reinstalled but it still didn't work. I then uninstalled and reinstalled a second time and the screensavers worked. Each time I went to standby and poweroff 3 times to be sure that the values were stored. FWIW, I'm using XP and EditPad Lite 7.

This doesn't seem to work on the newest firmware for the ka1 (4.2.8283). I'd had a previous version installed and that displayed duplicate images in the top two quarters of the screen. I reinstalled the mod and now it just doesn't display anything.

Any chance of an update?

Is this on the H2O (as in your profile) or do you have a KA1? 4.2.8283 comes with a kernel/framebuffer pixel format change, which pngshow won't know how to handle so you either get no images or glitched images. But as far as I'm aware this kernel/firmware doesn't run on the H2O so I can't test it myself. I don't have a KA1 and no plans to buy one.

I'm using a KA1, just been too lazy to update the profile. I'm willing to test, but I'm essentially limited to 'it didn't work' or 'it did work'. If the scanline mode in the autodetect works like it did when we controlled it, the line appears to be in the opposite corner from where it should be.

To make that clear it should be in the lower left corner, but I'm seeing a brief line in the upper right corner.

If it would help I could post what's in the config file.

Hmmm. Okay. I'm flying blind here, but there you go. Let me know what happens. (remove previously detected standby/poweroff from .addons/screensaver/screensaver.cfg & then let it re-detect those).

On my KA1, the standby and poweroff were finally detected after a few tries at each but the screensaver never loads.

Is this working for anyone else with the new firmware?

@kobayashi: So the scanline showed up properly? What's in your .addons/screensaver/screensaver.cfg?

If scanline works properly but images don't show, that'd be pngshow not working properly. It has to work partially though, otherwise scanline wouldn't show either. Hmmm.

RGBA but A is the first byte? Okay. I hate byte order issues.

Does this change anything?

This experiment2 should also create a .addons/screensaver/fbset.txt, please post it.

If you have a shell, you can try this directly:

Code:
# fbset
# /usr/local/ScreenSaver/pngshow /mnt/onboard/someimage.png
# echo $?
Thanks for testing.

Hmmm, no big surprise there. Not sure what else to try right now, sorry.
