Hi David 

tnx fer advice.

An other problem is that I don't have permission to change the file you mention.

So how do I get permission?

Hello Alf,

One thing you can try is to force the HDMI port always on.  To do this, edit the /boot/config.txt and enable the following feature:

   hdmi_force_hotplug=1

Save the file and reboot.  Does that help?  If not, I would then research how to force the desired screen resolution that your current monitor supports and also put that into the config.txt file.

Ultimately, there is probably a more elegant way to achieve what you're looking for without forcing the HDMI port to be on and maybe someone on the list can offer that up.

Hi,

I got problems when I set up my remote station headless.

With a monitor connected at the remote qth there is no problems with the size of JTDX main screen.

I have tried both Raspberry Pi 3B and Raspberry Pi 4B with same problem - the screen is too large and I'm not able to make the text on the screen smaller - I cannot press ok on setting screen!!

I don't no if this is a Raspberry Pi problem or a JTDX problem.
