Splash Screens/No Signal

  • Hi,

    I’ve searched through the forums and not managed to find an answer. I’m looking to pick up a second hand monitor (they seem cheaper than TVs) and I’d like to use a PIR sensor to turn the monitor on and off. However, when the HDMI output of the Pi is turned off, won’t the monitor display a “No SIgnal” message or even a company splash screen?

    Can anyone confirm whether this is a genuine concern and, if so, how to avoid it?

    Thanks for your help,

  • @steve23p9835908 depends on your monitor. For most, the pi sends a “power off” signal, and you get no message.

    Really, you gotta play worth the parts you have to see how it works.
