@buzz Till that hiccup, it’s run fine from the desktop (This installation was from before rpi4 was supported and had an image). It just took a bit of tweaking. I did notice better performance when booting directly vs desktop, though it was outputting in 4:3 on a 16:9 TV and the resolution was low (I think) so the TV’s upscaling algorithm (4k tv) smoothed out the pixels (will have to tinker to see if I can fix that). I’m just glad it works again.
Can you please add more info about your system, as requested in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first ?
How are you trying to wake up the system - keyboard, controller, etc ? If you're running a screensaver, consider disabling the power saving option in ES.
For the audio part, try adding audio_pwm_mode=2 to your /boot/config.txt and see if it improves the sound cutting part.
@herb_fargus That's what I was thinking.. an overclock that won't run on his pi, since every pi is different. Or using different controllers with a driver enabled that is interfering with the controller he is using.
@TommyEllas What controllers are you and your friend using ?
I have similar problem. I thought its my adapter to the monitor. I use a dongle for keyboard too. What was the interval when you got this screen freeze? I get it maybe once in a hour. Maybe its a different story on my side.
I have this exact same issue. However the fix doesn't work for me. The bluetooth disconnects after 5 seconds as it should but then never connects back to the pie and wont until the pie is rebooted. Any ideas or anything I can check using ssh to ensure the bluetooth service has restarted?? I am a bit of Linux noob but can find my way around a putty window :)
