Raspberry Pi

On the first partition of your SD card, you will find a file named config.txt. This file allows you to tweak a lot of things like framebuffer resolution, overclocking, audio, and is documented here

HDMI to DVI adaptor

If your RPi is not booting while using an HDMI to DVI adaptor, please remove this line from your config.txt:

Raspberry Pi 3

Add video=Composite-1:[email protected] to cmdline.txt right after quiet (separate these statements with a space)

Raspberry Pi 4

In addition to the modification of cmdline.txt above, add enable_tvout=1 and dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d-pi4,composite=1 to config.txt.
