Regain Use of HDMI (FAQ)?

Hello, this must be an FAQ.?. I would like to reclaim the use of the HDMI output on my devices raspberry pi, rather than display the logo?

I really need the output for diagnostics, but rather not have to wire up another tftp device or whatever …

Can this be done with boot configs, or similar?

Thank You!

Hi Rusty, you absolutely can make use of the HDMI port on the Raspberry Pi, via a container running an application! Our balenaDash project is an easy example project that will get you started:

Or, if you’d like to run a full desktop OS in a container, have a look at this article:

Hope that helps!

Very cool, that is exactly what I needed!!!
