RaspberryPi: Video Output DetectionCopyleft Games Group

When PySoy loads on RaspberryPi, HDMI output is assumed along with a default output resolution. It does not currently support composite video output.

Extend the Client constructor to detect HDMI output and uses it at the highest supported resolution when available, otherwise use composite video output.

You will need a RaspberryPi computer to work on this task. Using an SD card image for Sprout, start by building libsoy from Mercurial which will allow you to modify the RaspberryPi-specific code in platforms/videocore.

While working on this task you should join and remain in #CopyleftGames on Freenode to get help, feedback, and guidance from mentors and other developers. Code updates which may affect your work are also announced here as they happen.

When you've done, commit your work and post the resulting changeset url to this task.
