I downloaded the image from https://help.risevision.com/user/player/chrome-app/chrome-player-raspberrypi2, this is my first time using rise vision, at first I thought the video, Big Buck Bunny, I was testing might have just not been high quality because the video was not clear when played through risevision, it looked like a lower standard definition video. Then I noticed that even back on the desktop, the rise vision logo isnt really that clear or when I open chrome the fonts are not that smooth. I checked the resolution is getting detected properly at 1366X768. So I put my sd card in with raspbian on it, and the display is perfect. Anyone know where I can check to see where the problem is?

Hi Bill,

You may want to check with the original creator of the Ubuntu Image to see if they can give you any input as to why it is not displaying properly.
Bill, we saw the same thing, when first using the image.
It can be fixed by setting the color-depth to 32bit.
To do so, edit the file /boot/config.txt and add these lines:

gpu_mem=256
framebuffer_depth=32
framebuffer_ignore_alpha=1

Thanks I will try the forum for the Ubuntu image. Not sure if risevision is going to work for me though, I noticed in another thread you mentioned that the PI2 still had limitations.

Libratone, I tried those settings, but didnt notice a change.
