Moode Best Resolution Settings for HDMI Touchscreen (for 11", 12", and 13" monitors)
#1
I picked up an 11.6 inch IPS 1920x1080 Touchscreen to replace my 7 inch R Pi screen. After messing around for hours, I finally pinned down the Moode Display Settings that worked best for my 12" monitor... in terms of:
- Decent quality font smoothing
- Readability
- Touchability (Touch Screen Usability; i.e. not too small)
- Access to A-Z in Library > Tag (without overlapping into the song area below the Tags
- Etc

Using Moode on a screen like this is absolutely ANGELLIC!  Angel  Hopefully this may be helpful to someone... here are the settings I found worked best:

Configure > System > Pixel Aspect Ratio = DEFAULT

Cofigure > Appearance > Font Size = X-LARGE

Configure > System > SSH > OPEN //USER: pi  |  PW: moodeaudio
sudo nano /boot/config.txt
hdmi_force_hotplug=1   //(perhaps unchanged from defaults)
hdmi_group=2   //1=CEA consumer electronics i.e. TVs   |   2=DMT i.e. display monitors
hdmi_mode=85   //82 = DMT 1920 60Hz  |  85 = DMT 1280x720 60Hz
[CTRL + S]   //Save and Reboot to a system that defaults to the new settings
//FYI: With hdmi_drive=1 (the default), sound will work in CEA (HDMI) modes, but not in DMT (DVI) modes. hdmi_drive=2 forces sound in DVI modes.
