I have a ASRock and Ubuntu 10.10. Everything worked fine till I had a short circuit. I started the computer, everything came up fine but the projector I have attached to the HDMI wasn't recognized anymore. I have a GeForce GT 425M and a Panasonic AE-2000 attached to it. The Xorg.0.log has following entries:
[ 12.838] (EE) NVIDIA(1): Unable to find available Display Devices
for screen 1.
[ 12.838] (EE) NVIDIA(1): No display devices found for this X screen
I'm having a hard time with my hdmi output on my HP G60-128CA laptop to my HDTV.For now I'm getting video only with the Nvidia 173 driver no mater if I'm on 10.04 or 10.10. In the 2 cases, the sound is not passing. Let me add that all the options in sound preferences are available and all the speakers tests i did whit aplay worked ( no error messages), and no muted devices in alsamixer.In all my web searching one thing is strange to me: i didn't find a lot of problems regarding the hdmi display output whit the latest nvidia driver
i upgraded to lucid, but now my video has stopped working... videos and iplayer work fine. the problem is with any videos (mp4, flv) opened in vlc or mplayer. i can hear sound fine but the screen is black. the same happens in skype. i followed the comprehensive guide and did all the steps, but no joy.
Sometimes, both on Gnome MPlayer and Movie Player, videos clips won't play. I use mainly MKV file format and quite often, AVI. I have also installed Ubuntu-Restricted-Extras.
The players will literally not play. When I scroll, it goes through the video clip as if I'm fast forwarding when paused, and then it would still be frozen.
I only use Gnome MPlayer and it's been working fine until like two weeks ago, and when it happens it's also the same for the Movie Player. The problem stays there until I reboot my laptop.
It's random but quite often and it's now doing my head in. It would be nice if any of you gents could give me a good solution without getting involved another player, because I really like Gnome MPlayer.
I have been using my HTPC OpenSuse 11.2 for for some months now and everything is great, I'm very happy that I made the switch to Linux. Today for some reason none of my avi files are able to play. When I try a DVD there is also no play back of the video. Sound is working but video is not there. I have tried Kaffeine, VLC, SM Player. All no luck.
Here is the output after checking with Red Dwarf's troubleshoot thread:
Recently audio stopped working in my flash video, when browsing in Chrome or Firefox, video is ok, but no audio. I don't know when did it stop to work. My system is SUSE 11.3 with all software up-to-date.
I'm looking to put a new video card in my desktop. I need one that will be able to handle H.264 at 1920x1080, and I would like to find one that can do HDMI with audio. Shopping for video cards, as I heard somewhere, is the kind of thing that makes you want to bang your head against a wall until you go blind, because then you won't need to worry about it any more... someone will be able to recommend a model, or at least a chipset or something, before I rip my own eyes out.
Hardware: HP dv3505ea laptop Ubuntu: 10.04 LTS uname -a: Linux adventure 2.6.32-28-generic #55-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jan 10 23:42:43 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux HDTV: Panasonic TX-L37D28BSA
I'm having trouble getting any output from my laptop's HDMI socket. I've had a search and can only find sound problems, mine is no visible output whatsoever.
Let me describe the setup: Laptop has a HDMI socket which I have never used before, HDTV has 4 HDMI inputs, I just bought a HDMI cable to connect the two to try it.
After connection I go to System->Preferences->Monitors and the TV is detected fine with the correct description and offers me 3 different resolutions. xrandr also works and gives me the same thing:
However none of the options display ANYTHING on the TV. The screen remains black, not even a flicker.
I have connected the laptop to the TV before using an analogue VGA (monitor) cable which worked in the same way with no problems.
Could this be an encryption/DRM/DVI problem? I have suspicions about the cable too because it is new and I haven't seen it work, but it wouldn't detect the correct TV description and resolutions would it? It was sold as an XBOX360/PS3 HDMI cable, is there a difference? It looks like a standard HDMI male-male cable.
Other things I've tried: Log off and log back on to restart the X server reboot
I've recently tried using my HDMI port on my Acer Timelinex 3820T. Audio works perfectly; video is another story altogether, however. I am able to see my mouse on my TV screen, and my top panel of my desktop is partially visible (it's cut out at the top). The icons on this panel respond to mouse kicks.
I currently use "MSI Radeon HD 3650 Graphics Card - ATi Radeon HD 3650 750MHz - 512MB GDDR3 SDRAM - PCI Express" that have no HDMI and some problems with Ubuntu. Due to the Ubuntu compatibility problems I decided to ask you guys for recommendations before upgrading to a new video card.The only "demand" is that the card must have dual HDMI outputs, one for the monitor and one for the TV.
I have a Zotac MAG HD N01 desktop computer hooked up to my 40" LCD Samsung TV in the living room. On this machine, I have Ubuntu 9.10 minimal installed, and the system is configured using the XCI script (a customization script to configure the system as an HTPC with XBMC).
Now, since the original install, I've tweak it a little, and one of the things I have it doing is its booting into a minimal desktop using the NODM login manager and it goes into OpenBox. Everything works fine and dandy, however, when I leave it for a while, it looses its connection and says "Searching for Signal" on my TV. I can remedy the situation by just hitting a key on the keyboard (Ctrl for example).
This also happens if i'm watching, say a flash video in a web browser for a while (like a hockey game), and all of a sudden, the screen cuts out.I've checked in the openbox configuration, and screensaver is turned off, but I can't seem to find where to configure any sort of power management. Is there a way to turn off the, what I can only assume, is a power management feature?
I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard and graphics card. Ideally, I'd like to have 2 monitors running at once (DVI), and an output to an LCD projector (HDMI). If I can't have all 3 working at once, I'd like the 2 monitors on all the time (off the graphics card), and then switch from the monitors to the HDMI output so that only the projector is getting video.
So, If I get a motherboard with onboard HDMI, would it be possible to run the HDMI out at the same time as the graphics card output?
but I had trouble trying to play an avi file on the bigscreen via my laptop's HDMI output.Although I could play the video in a full size box (with status bars and borders visible), both screens would go black when I double-clicked to go full size. This happened in both MPlayer and VLC as long as the HDMI cable was connected. Audio was fine.It presents as some sort off copyright protection, but I remember being able to watch movies fine in Maverick. Is anyone else having this problem with Natty?
script which adjusts my NVIDIA settings to HDMI and also my Audio output to my digital output. I feel its quite a lot of clicking to get my signal to my LCD.So I hope somebody already had this idea and can give me the script or can assist me in writing it myself. I think its not a complicated script. i guess its only 2 lines. But i am not exactly a pro in Ubuntu..So as i said i have a NVIDIA graphic cardand aplay -l shows

I have noticed that, using nvidia's latest drivers, HDMi output to my 32" LCD (1920x1080) and totem or vlc, the video on my LCD gets a bit "choppy" when the image changes faster.. some bars start appearing on the moving parts of the image.. like the system is having trouble rendering the video. This doesn't happen on my laptop screen even when both displays are running at the same time.
Also, this problem doesn't appear in windows 7, everything works perfectly there with one odd thing... the picture gets "choppy" on the laptop screen when I'm running both at the same time. It's not that noticeable, but I can tell the difference between windows and ubuntu in quality and it's annoying me
I realise this is an issue that has been covered a lot, one way or another, but at least from what I've been able to find, most of the discussion centres around getting HDMI audio to work. However, I have problems even getting the video to work from my laptop's HDMI output.
I have an HP dv6z-se, with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6550 (1 Gb) video card and using F14/KDE. My problem is that when I go to System Settings/Display/Monitor, Fedora doesn't actually seem to realise my computer even has an HDMI output and only displays options for VGA and my integrated screen.
When I plug it into my LCD screen, sometimes I get a 'No Signal' message and sometimes I get garbled static and a message about unrecognised input and the frequency it's coming at.
I read elsewhere in the forum that someone was able to get video working by editing their xorg.conf file, so I went in and tried to see if I could replicate that, but none of the files in my xorg.conf.d folder had anything related to video outputs (as far as I can tell at this point).
over the last couple of weeks, firefox has asked to be upgraded a few times. shockwave flash has also asked to be upgraded. sometime last week after upgrading shockwave flash all video stopped. so i have no videos, video in webpages just shows a grey box, with a light grey arrow.i have been very busy so i have taken time here and there to check the internet for solutions. there appear to have been problems with macs' and a lot of the problems appear to be from august 2009 onwards,am not sure it is the same problem.i am running opensuse 11.1mozilla firefox 3.6.10shockwave flash 10.1 r82 is enabled
I currently installed ubuntu 10.04 and I am having trouble getting sound from my monitor. The monitor that I have is a HANNS-G HH251. It is connected to a Sapphire 4850 Video card through a HDMI wire. The monitor has audio when I boot it in windows7, but there is no audio when I use ubuntu 10.04.
I am running 10.04 with an integrated Radeon HD3200 card. When I set up the tv through hdmi, the sound works perfectly; however, when I switch to analog audio to play something else, the next time I try to use hdmi audio I get nothing. It shows to have good level through Pulse Audio Volume Control - shows like there is a sound coming through it, but I get no audio through the tv. The only way I can fix this is by uninstalling proprietary drivers and reverting back to generic configuration and then reinstalling proprietary drivers. I have to revert back to generic in order to get the sound working again.
I have a dell 1525 laptop with ubuntu 10.10 . Just made the switch from win vista . Everything seems to be perfect, wireless, video, ect. However no audio on my onboard hdmi port. The video is displayed perfect runs very smooth. This could be my lack of knowledge on ubuntu just not understanding what settings to change maybe no driver for the hdmi audio. I would like to add that the laptop onboard speakers work fine.
I recently bought a new HD Television, and I wanted to connect it to my laptop, a Gateway NV52 using an HDMI cable. I got the video to work with no issues, but I can't seem to get the audio to work. My soundcard is a Conexant CX20561 and I'm running Ubuntu 10.10.
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
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 a few days ago and HDMI audio worked out of the box (with the nVidia drivers enabled). Today I did a system update and (among other problems) there is no more sound coming over HDMI. I'm not really sure what to do to diagnose this problem... where would I start?
im trying to get my xbmc box running on an asus ion mobo. in gnome i set all audio output to the hdmi driver but im not getting any sound on the tv. Im a newbie by the way so it's problably some silly thing.. but i've included a link to my alsa information and pulseaudio settings in case it's a big thing.URL...
I have been pining over and over through 100s of forum posts to no avail. My problem is that my audio through HDMI does not work fully. I upgraded to 1.0.23 alsa release, which seemed to help, but I cant get anything besides 'Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output' from System-Preferences-Sound. Maybe this is normal, and I will have to rely on xbmc, etc. to provide 5.1 surround sound?
