OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Connect Toshiba X205 Laptop To TV With HDMI?
Jul 4, 2011
Off and on for some time now I've been using a Toshiba x205-s9359 laptop with (11.4/KDE4.6) during the day as a general purpose laptop using the onboard LCD and in the evenings to run XBMC to play movies on a TV using an HDMI cable (no cable TV on our little island & Satellite TV is poor in the rainy season).
The video card is an NVidia GeForce 8700M GT with NVidia's proprietary driver v. 275.09.07 (installed the "hard way").
~> aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog]
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Now the Audio/Video both go to the TV via HDMI if it's connected prior to boot, if not the laptop works normally.
If you try this with XBMC don't forget to go to set the XBMC settings to "HDMI" as needed.
i want to connect my laptop to the lcd using hdmiI have nvidia video card 9200 gs and the driver is installedafter connecting both together nothing happens!do i have to change anything in the system or display settings?
My wireless (Toshiba laptop, 10.04 64 bit) is just hanging when trying to connect. It was working fine but now nothing. My Wireless antennae is on and my other laptop can connect with no problems. I have restarted the router and the laptop twice.
I'm trying to connect my Xbox 360 to my Laptop via HDMI cable, so that I can use Xbox ony my laptop's screen.
I connected my Latop to my Xbox 360 by HDMI cable, but nothing happens, I was expecting the screen to auto-switch or something, so I went to the monitors GUI and tried to find settings there - unsuccessfuly.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A660 laptop with Ubuntu 10.04. I am sure that the internal microphone works because when I reboot into Windows it works fine. It does not work in Ubuntu instead. I tried three things:
1) Action: I checked all the volumes, made sure that the microphone is not muted and selected the proper device as "Analog Stereo Duplex". Result: no improvements.
2) Action: I installed PulseAudio to better manage the volumes. Result: no improvements.
3) Action: in the Terminal, I executed the line " sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf " and then added the line " options snd-hda-intel model=toshiba " at the bottom of the page that opened. I saved, closed and rebooted. Result: no improvements.
I executed in the Terminal the command " wget [URL]. The link to where data were uploaded is [URL].
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my HP Pavilion dv4-1040ee laptop which was shipped with nVidia GeForce 9200M GS graphics card, the only problem that I'm currently facing is that the computer was not able to detect my screen by using the HDMI port. So, I thought that may be it was a driver's issue so I installed the latest nVidia dirvers by using the command
Code: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current When I restarted the computer nVidia's logo appeared during booting and nVidia X Server
So, help me through getting my audio working properly on my Toshiba Satellite A105-S2081 Laptop. I think I've been through most of the help messages and tried many things to get it working correctly. The ONLY thing that has helped is to go to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and change model=auto to model=generic. (options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 power_save_controller=N model=generic)
I've tried model=toshiba, model=auto, model=lenovo, model=3stack, model=dallas and the laptops internal sound device disappears from the list of sound devices. If I plug in my Logitech Headset, it seems to work fine.It also seems to work fine if I boot it up into XP SP3.It does work now generally with model=generic, but not sure that everything works properly, like the headset & microphone jack. (Actually the reason I have the Logitech Headset is because the headset jack doesn't work).
Running OpenSuse 11.2 from live dvd. When it starts up, the screen gets filled with vertical green and black lines, with about a 1 inch square in the middle that moves as the cursor. Nothing else is visible.I've tried each of the video options, with the same result. Is there any solution to this?
Where the script is for Gnome 3. When I plug the HDMI cable, the desktop expands to include both, but disables the backlight on the laptop monitor. I have to restart gdm3 or the laptop for the brightness control to bring it back up. First, why would it turn brightness to 0, and how do I change the default of that so it stops. I plug and unplug the HDMI regualarly while I wait for a new desktop and the laptop has to pull double duty.
I just switched from Ubuntu 14.10. It never blacked out a screen on plug in or removing. That means that there must be some way to do it, however, it used Unity and this is Gnome 3.
I installed KDE. It works as well. I will use it for now, but would like to get Gnome 3 to work. My default is gdm but I think I saw I can switch it to kdm.
I have been searching the web for a solution to a couple of problemsm having with hardware, I am Unable to get the fan or wireless working on my Toshiba U505 S2950 Laptop. I am new to using OpenSuse but I have used Ubuntu and other distros. I have not been able to solve these issues yet and I have tried several things that I have found on various forums
I have Lenovo SL500 with ubuntu 10.10. Also i have installed latest GeForce 9300M GS drivers from NVIDIA site. NVTV is also installed. When i want to connect to LG 32LE4500 trough HDMI i get no singnal message. I tried to configure with nvidia-settings but no positive results. Also i have tried with bigger SAMSUNG screen but no results... am i doing something wrong? Or, is this problem with NVIDIA (or ubuntu) HDMI support. If it is, where can i find information when will be bigger support for HDMI with NVIDIA and ubuntu?
After updating the repositories, a long update took place... and after completed, my sound card was disabled. I had to reboot the system to have it working again, yet... mp3, mp4, avi files cannot be reproduced at all.
I just want to get rid of Win 7... and I find OpenSuse very stable, solid and friendly. I just installed version 11.2 in this old Toshiba Satellite, as a pilot installation prior the final one in a desktop PC.
I have my Acer Revo R3610 PC connected to my LCD TV through HDMI. The sound works but I cannot control the volume from Kmix. I've added the IEC958 channel to the channels in Kmix but it doesn't provide a slider for it. Only a mute. The master volume slider has no effect at all. Is there any way of controlling the volume when connected through HDMI?
I ran the alsa diagnostics script (/usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh) and uploaded it here.
Here is a quick summary of my Alsa version, sound module loaded and sound card details.
Having some problems with HDMI-Audio on my HTPC: I don't get sound out of HDMI port! For system info look there: Sysprofile
OS is Suse11.3 64Bit with KDE now! At "System-Settings/Multimedia/Audio Output" there are the following devices in the given order: HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev1 Analog) HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev2 Digital) HDA NVidia, NVIDIA HDMI (HDMI Audio)
That's consistent with the connector layout of the mainboard. Playing "Test sound" while marked the HDMI Audio is not causing any output with HDMI, while analog works just fine!
I also installed the nVidia prop drivers with the packet manager. In YAST there is one card found in the sound section:: Idex=0 and Card Model=MCP79 High Definition Audio
I own an asus u50a, which has an intel cooperation mobile 4 chipset integrated graphics card. It has a vga port on it (in addition to an hdmi) and i would like to see if it is possible to connect it to the s-video or the rca ports on my big CRT television set. I have been endlessly confused by what it is that i need to accomplish the task of seeing the same image on both a laptop and a television screen, both in the matters of hardware and software. What should I do considering these circumstances to achieve my ends?
I have HDMI sound enabled by default in System Configuration (Music, Movies and System Sounds), but the only multimedia application that uses it is DragonPlayer. (System Sounds work fine also)Kaffeine still wants to use my INTEL card as does Amarok; VLC Player just complains that my AlsaLib file isn't up to date.I am running opensuse 11.3, KDE 4.5.90 (4.6 RC1) Kernel 2.6.34-7-0.5-desktop sound is outputting to a Samsung 42" 1080p TV.
Sound/Video card is an ATI RV710 (Radeon HD 4350). What does DragonPlayer do that the other three applications do not?How can I configure Kaffeine and VLC to output via the HDMIAlso since doing a system update to KDE 4.5.90 my screen blanks every ten minutes, I have tried to disable screen saver and screen power save in power management, however still i can't stop the system blanking every 10 minutes any clues?Finally DragonPlayer is now crashing after every video has finished playing before i can start the next
I occasionally use a DisplayPort->HDMI cable to connect my laptop to my AV-Receiver, however I only get the picture to the AV-Receiver, but no sound. I read that not all DisplayPort->HDMI cables support sound, so I tested Windows7 on the same machine and it transmitted sound over that cable just fine. So I conclude that it is a Linux driver problem.
So I generally wonder whether this can be made to work easily or not. Does anyone here have experiences with this topic, especially with nvidia graphics cards managing the display port? (I did find older posts about HDMI audio, but they were all concerned with ATI graphics.)
pavucontrol / phonon do list a "High Definition Audio Controller Digital Stereo (HDMI)"-device, but sending sound to it does not do a thing. Furthermore, my dell laptop only has a displayport, but no HDMI connector.
I am attempting to set up a machine to use as a movie/video viewer. When I connect this machine using an HDMI cable to an HDMI TV, I get video, but no audio. No beeps, no system sounds, no noise of any kind.
I've run the following mixers and set all volume controls to maximum:Gmixer, Kmix, AlsaMixer and pavucontrol.
When playing a video, pavucontrol meter shows signal from the application and shows output signal to the HDMI device, but where that output is going to is beyond me.
Using the Sound setup of Yast, I attempt to play a test sound on the HDMI, nothing.
Built in Audio adapter works fine. I have disabled it in pavucontrol in attempts to get the sound directed to the HDMI output, but, silence is all I get. I've also tried enabling and disabling simultaneous output with no difference in results.
I've tried a few suggestions from other posts with the same issue (creating /etc/asoundrc.conf, modifying /etc/pulse/default.pa), but no joy.
If I boot up that other operating system (starts with a W), all sounds (system & video) show up on the HDMI input with no adjustments needed.
Why must this be so difficult?
The technical details: Suse 11.4 EVGA GeForce 8400GS Video card (HDMI)
All commands below were issued while HDMI cable connected, and video playing (using VLC).
CPU fan apparently is not working with Debian (or Kernel, I don't know who's responsible for ACPI devices management. ).After setting up lm-sensors to show core temperatures, and running a simple "while(true);" C program, I noticed the fan doesn't turn on until the temperature reaches 80 degrees Celsius, and when it does, it runs at what appears to be full speed (VERY noisy). Also, it stays turned on at that speed even after temperature gets below 35 degrees Celsius. The only way to turn it off is to put the computer to sleep and wake it up again, but if I do the same procedure, it happens again.
I think it is related to some compatibility problem with ACPI devices because when I turn on the computer, I can't get the Fn keys to work, but after I suspend and wake it up, I can control the brightness using the Fn key and use the Play, Pause, etc. buttons. I read this has something to do with ACPI issues, the same as the fan control issues, because "try to suspend and wake up the computer" is something people usually tell to others with this problem (I assume just to confirm the diagnostic).Everything works fine on the pre-installed Windows Vista that came with the computer. It's definitely a compatibility problem.
I've read a lot in forums, even here, but I couldn't get any solution for this. I installed toshset but asks me to enable a Kernel module which I have no idea of how to load. I have no idea of how to load a Kernel module in fact.Also, I didn't want to believe, but I read there's no solution for this (at least, not one which doesn't involve a lot of knowledge on the matter).I'd like to stay with Debian, so I'm doing my last try here before installing other Linux Distro. I hope this problem is about Debian and not all Linux distros.My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L355, Intel Pentium Dual Core T3200. I bought it in the end of 2008, so it's kind of old.
The sound on my system is really low. I am using a Toshiba Tecra M3 laptop with Intel sound.
Here is my uname info: Code: 126.96.36.199-67.fc12.i686 #1 SMP Sat Feb 27 10:00:02 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I tested both Rhythmbox and Gnome Mplayer. Both are low when using headphones and very low when using the laptop speakers. I checked the alsa configuration via alsamixer -c0 and everything looks good. I have attached my alsa-info.txt file.
I feel I am really really close at getting this connected.
The native ath9k driver did not work. I blacklisted this driver and then proceeded to load a windows driver that came with the card through ndiswrapper.
The system sees my wireless router but I could not get connected to the router. I get the circle of death of it trying to connect though.
I then replaced the Network Manager with Wicd.
I try and connect, after setting the preshared key, and it stops at the very end saying it could not obtain an IP address.
I then try to set a static IP, and at the very end it comes back with, "could not contact wireless access point".
I feel I am so close to getting this connected I just don't know if it is a setting on my router I need to change or to look for a different driver. Driver should be fine but I'm no expert.
I have two other computers wireless'ly connected to this router currently and one of them is connected via a dual boot, Ubuntu and Win7, so at the very least these two computers don't have any issues connecting to the router.
Or I am just going to live with WinXP installed on it instead. BTW: I had no problems getting a wireless connection from this laptop when I had WinXP installed, but I have since wiped it off with a clean install of Ubuntu 9.10. Goes to show how much I want to rid myself of Windows on the laptop.
I even installed 8.04 to see if I could make a connection with that version but to no avail I could not. I have since reloaded 9.10.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A660-056 which works beautifully except that the built in mic and the headphone jack don't work. For the microphone, no input device is listed in the Sound Preferences control panel. When I plug in headphones, the built-in speakers go quiet but nothing goes through the headphones.
Here's the info Code: uname -a Linux satelliteoflove 2.6.32-24-generic #43-Ubuntu SMP Thu Sep 16 14:17:33 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
