ODROID-C1/C1+/C0

To use the VU7 plus on C1+ Linux system, the Kernel version must be 3.10.80-128 or higher.

sudo apt update & sudo apt dist-upgrade

Also, don’t forget to configure the boot.ini file for 1024×600 resolution and DVI output mode as following.

# Comment default mode 1080p and uncomment 1024x600p60hz
# setenv m “1080p”    # 1080P@60Hz 
setenv m “1024x600p60hz” # 1024x600
 
# HDMI DVI/VGA modes
# By default its set to HDMI, if needed change below.
# Uncomment only a single Line.
setenv vout_mode "dvi"

ODROID-C2

In case of ODROID-C2, display auto detection mode can adjust hdmi resolution and dvi option by default.
So you don't need to edit boot.ini.

# Auto Detection of Monitor settings based on your Screen information
# See: http://odroid.com/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=en:c2_auto_detect_display
setenv display_autodetect "true"

But if you want to use a manual mode, please refer to the following.

# Auto detection
setenv display_autodetect "false"
 
# Resolutions
# setenv m "1080p"  # 1080P@60Hz
setenv m “1024x600p60hz”
 
# HDMI DVI/VGA modes
# By default its set to HDMI, if needed change below.
# Uncomment only a single Line.
setenv vout "dvi"
