Ubuntu :: Connect Xbox 360 To Laptop Via HDMI Cable?
Sep 21, 2010
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 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?
Recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 on laptop - new partition. Have PC running XP with internet connection. I have a satellite connect from Germany. I live in Turkmenistan.I know all IP addresses, subnet mask, Default gateway, etc. Can someone help configure internet on laptop w/Ubuntu? I am not the fastest ball down the alley but I shouldn't have too much problem with the terminal. Just be gentle. I just completed a pppoeconf search and was informed something or another couldn't be found. It's a little frustrating because I need to disconnect internet cable from PC and connect to Laptop. let me add that I do not have an internet user name or password "supplied by ISP". But I hooked up connection OK on XP.
I have an old desktop computer that I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on. I also have a laptop with Windows 7 Pro which is connected wirelessly to the internet. The desktop does not have a wireless card and the modem is in another room. I have a spare ethernet cable, is it possible to connect the Ubuntu desktop to the internet by connecting it to the laptop with the cable? I'm not very good with computers.If this isn't possible, how would I go about connecting the desktop to the internet?
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").
Code: ~> aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog] Subdevices: 1/1 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 am having a problem when I hook my computer up to my tv the desktop is bigger than the screen will allow. Is there a way to shrink the desktop down so that it fits within the screen? I can not find a way to do it on the tv itself... I should also add that the resolution is set to 19201080 and the video card has a vga and dvi port. I am connecting to the tv with a dvi-hdmi cable
I bought a 25 foot dvi to hdmi cable to play movies from my computer on my plasma tv. Green pixels appear on about 20% of the plasma screen; some jump around others stay in one place. I have a nvidia GeForce 7600 GT card. The nvidia restricted drivers are installed. I also tried using a mythbuntu live cd and had the same problems. Is this a problem with a bad cable, bad driver, wrong setup, or something else? How can I get rid of the green pixels?
I am running 11.04 on a new Gateway with 8 gigs of ram. It is a solo installation. The monitor is connected via an HDMI cable. Everything was great (installation running smoothly for over a month) until last night. I just installed a netgear router and was setting it up with the system to try to get Stanza on my IPAD to connect to Calibre. Anyway, i suffered a severe freeze up warranting a hard boot. I could see the drive working, ancillary drives lit up, keyboard lit up so I know the system is working. The monitor did not come on, It shows a yellow light indication no signal. It is a 28" Hansspree. I tested the monitor by hooking it to a laptop. The monitor is fine. I cannot see anything on the screen so I can't boot to repair mode or use a CD. There is no signal.
Dell XPS 420: Radeon HD 4670: Philips 720p TV monitor. When booting, after the GRUB screen nothing happens until the HDMI cable is unplugged and replugged. Various ATI drivers installed. Various /etc/X11/xorg.conf used.
My son has been using 9.10 and when he wanted to play on his XBox live, we just connected a ethernet cable to the Xbox and laptop then clicked on the wireless icon and clicked on wired connection and then he could play on his Xbox. But since upgrading to 10.04 this just will not work. We have tried with the XBox off and on, the wired connection connects but the XBox will not find the connection.
I know my way around windows but my Vista files got corrupted a few days ago and thats why i decided to use Ubuntu.Well anyway, this is my problem.Ive got a Acer5920 Laptop and an Xbox. My xbox is in the living room and Id like to connect it to the internet. When i had vista i used bridged connection. :Xbox => ethernet port of my laptop bridged with wlan of laptop => router.Bridging connections on vista is fairly easy but I have no clue how to bridge connections on ubuntu.
I went out to buy myself an nVidia G210 yesterday in order to play Quake Wars. I installed the 260.19 (latest from RPMFusion) nVidia drivers and 3D effects worked along with the game. What didn't work is the sound. I am using an HDMI cable to connect my monitor to the computer. It seems as though ALSA is not letting the digital stream through because when I play an audio file in Rhythmbox, PulseAudio Volume Control shows that the speakers are blasting music. This is strange, since nothing is coming out.

I am currently employing card 2, device 3 in my PulseAudio configuration (/etc/pulse/default.pa). How can I make ALSA read the digital stream from my HDMI cable?
I have a home server that I have been running for some years and am constantly tweaking / playing with it resulting in numerous reinstalls (and upsetting the wife!). It does nothing critical but I use it mainly for:
backing up my laptop files XBMC ZoneMinder
Due to the number of times that I manage to break it, I have now thought about setting it up as a base system but with virtual machines looking after the seperate 'components'. The machine is an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ with 2Gb RAM. First of all do you think it is powerful enough to run XBMC and ZM in seperate virtual machines? - I appreciate the more RAM the better but at the moment I am sticking to 2Gb.
I was also wondering what sort of issues may arise for the audio and video areas I will be using. XBMC currently outputs through an HDMI cable to the TV and ZM recieves video signals through a seperate video card. ( I have had my concerns in the past that there have been conflicts in the way I have set things up!). I have read a number of guides about setting a system up with virtual machines but not really found any articles about the practicalities of using such a set up at home. before I commit and spend a week pulling my hair out trying to get it all to work!
I were to download a demo from [URL] would it save the demo to my laptop and then I could transfer it to my Xbox via Ethernet cable, even though my laptop has Ubuntu on it or does it have to be Windows computer?
I ask, b/c either way it is just a file on my laptop, regardless of the OS.
I have a newly set up computer with 11.4 64 bit. Intel Core i5, under Sound Configuration in YaST I have '5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio'and 'nVidia Corporation'I have built in speakers in my screen, connected via HDMI. I hear no sound from any source, neither via HDMI, nor via a separate sound cable connected to the sound connector on the back of the computer nor via the head phone jack on the front.
My problem here is the following: whenever I plug or unplug the AC cable in or out of my laptop it goes on hibernation, which is very annoying indeed. Sometimes I just want to plug it because I'm downloading something and my battery is running out.I would like to add that when my laptop goes into hibernation, and I try to bring it back up nothing happens, only the fans go on, but no activity other than that, at which point always just end up shutting the computer down cold and restarting it, which is getting to be a huge problem
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T520 laptop with Nvidia NVS 4200m Graphics card. I installed Ubuntu 11.04.
Before I installed Ubuntu 11.04 I had went to my bios and disabled Nvidia Optiums and changed the graphics to Discrete Graphics. Then inserted my Ubuntu 11.04 CD and installed.
With this I had gotten unity to work. However when I pull the power cable from the laptop my screen freezes. Also if press "FN"+ Home or END to change the brightness of the screen my screen freezes and no longer able to move the mouse or press anything on keyboard.
Did anyone ever run into this problem and or fix this issue? I can get the graphics working properly with Ubuntu 11.04 with Unity with a Nvidia NVS 4200m graphics card.
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 am running Ubuntu 10.04 on an Acer Aspire 6930 with an nVidia GeForce 9300m GS hooked up to my LG TV via HDMI.I have used the nVidia configuration tool to set the TV as a clone of my desktop and all appears to be working fine except for one thing.When I close my laptop lid, the TV also blanks.I know I could turn off my laptop monitor from within the nVidia config tool, but that is not what I want to do as I still use it; and besides, it's inconvenient to have to do it all the time.
Acer 5250-BZ475 laptop, fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04. Boots up beautifully as long as an ethernet cable is plugged in. Otherwise, I get to the login screen and have just enough time to start typing in my password before the entire system hangs hard - no mouse, no keyboard, can't even get to a terminal, nothing. Have to hard power off the machine.
It seems to be a problem with the wireless card trying to initialize, but there doesn't seem to be a bios option to disable wireless on this laptop, so I'm a bit at a loss as to how to fix this problem. By the way, wireless works fine if I boot up with a cable connected - I can see all the wireless access points in my area no problem. I just can't boot without a wired connection, which makes my laptop more or less useless when I'm away from home with it.
I'm having trouble connecting to the internet... I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 on a PC with Windows XP installed. When I click the little network icon at the top there's an option called "auto eth1" but when I click it, it just says "Wired Connection: Disconnected - you are now offline."
I have a weird problem, i have an LG LCD screen that i connect to my laptop via HDMI through nVidia. I was watching full length movies and everything worked perfectly. So, i got myself a new, slightly bigger LG LCD, and now, when I play a movie, about 20-60 minutes into the movie, my machine just turns off. doesnt even shutdown properly, just turns itself off, as if the power ran out (which it didnt..)
I thought maybe i had too many things installed, or mabe i should wait for a new version.. so i waited till i reinstalled a fresh 10.4 on a new partition, played a movie, and again, the machine just suddenly turned itself off.
i tried looking in the system log viewer, but between shutdown and startup, i see nothing special (besides ALOT of "rt_ioctl_giwscan. 1(1) BSS returned, data->length = 105")..
i tried running 64bit & 32bit and it has the same error.
When I open my browser in windows vista (I have a duel-boot system), my browser (Firefox) automatically goes to this page, and I log in, and am able to then use the Internet.
Ubuntu also searches for this 10.196.128.11 server, but it continually states "waiting for server to respond". I have checked all the settings I could find in windows and compared them to the ones in ubuntu, and they seem to be identical to me. I am using firefox in ubuntu too so I cannot understand the problem.
I am using Ubuntu Server version 10.4, and am trying to connect to the internet via an ethernet cable. This may and probably is incredibly simple, however, I could not find anything that pertains to it.
