Tool script for video timings and center image on 15khz CRTs

This tool was made Frank Skilton.

Something I’ve been working on and am very happy with the results. Shell script to streamline the process of generating/viewing/manipulating and saving hdmi_timings.

Version 2.0

Current features:

– Manually enter and generate hdmi_timings
– Adjust screen position
– Display a PNG test image to aid in screen positioning
– Display horizontal scan rate and vertical refresh rate
– Save timings and full config to boot/config.txt

Works really well, makes life so much easier.
