I have this 50 $ projector and I connect a Dongle to it with HDMI cable-- so I have actual screen of 320x240, but the screen is broadcast at 720p. This results in unreadable letters, even if I set font size to huge setting. Can I somehow change the resolution dongle works?

  • can you explain us what kind of device you're running and projector ? – svarog May 18 '15 at 4:47
  • Device is MK-808 dongle, projector is Chinese noname brand with native resolution 320x240 - something similar to the link I posted in the question. – Anton May 18 '15 at 5:31

Hope this helps. On my Note3 running Lollipop I was able to check for supported external resolutions by running ( via a terminal app or adb shell )

>dmesg

and ( filtering with grep ) looking for the lines:

<6>[  581.051746] hdmi_edid_add_sink_video_format: EDID: format: 1 [640x480 p60 4/3], Supported

which you'll note correspond to supported resolutions in:

>cat /sys/devices/virtual/graphics/fb1/edid_modes 
1,4

then select your preferred output using :

>setprop hw.hdmi.resolution 1

and then re-plug the mhl adapter.

which in my case resulted in 640x480 which was the only option supported by my 800x600 projector.

Thanks to this Force 720p Resolution on InForce 6540
