Ubuntu :: Use Hdmi \ Connect Laptop To The Lcd Using Hdmi?
Dec 9, 2010
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?
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.
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 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).
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.
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.
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'm trying to get HDMI audio to play from my Dell XPX M1330 laptop through a HDMI cable to my Sony Bravia TV. This is a dual booted laptop. Booting into Windows 7 on the same laptop and streaming the desktop through HDMI cable to the TV shows up on the TV just fine, including sound through the TV's speakers.
However, when booting into my Debian laptop, with the HDMI cable already plugged in, I am able to play the videos, but no sound comes out of the TV's speakers. (plugging in the HDMI cable after logging into Gnome hangs up the entire system and I have to cold boot; setting that problem aside for now).
Since Windows 7 can figure this out, I consider this just something I don't have configured properly.
What do I need to do in order to enable sound to be piped through HDMI to the TV's speakers?
System details are shown below:
Pavucontrol Configuration tab dropdown indicating it is not sensing, or doesn't know about, the HDMI hardware:
cat /etc/debian_version shows 7.8
Output of aplay -l is:
Code: Select allcensored@thedell:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: STAC92xx Analog [STAC92xx Analog] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Though I had solved this but I was premature. Here are the details. When I use HDMI to connect to my lcd TV it works fine in Windows7. (I have dual partitions W7/Ubuntu),but when I boot into Ubuntu and use HDMI, nothing happens.

also when I open the Gnome Alsa Mixer, under the HDMI tab, there is just a blank screen. I believe I have the latest Alsa releases.
I'm triying to connect my computer to my tv and im trying with the HDMI. I connected the cable to the computer and to the tv and it all worked fine. But when i click on my tv the HDMI 1, nothing shows?
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?
I was looking for a solution to watch HDTV quality videos on multiple tv's. I have a cable run and cat5 run to each room and wanted a way to watch hidef movies in each room preferably synced. After much searching I'm coming to the conclusion that this will be hard and expensive no matter which route I want to go. I'm thinking my best route is to build a media converter and pipe that to each room.
I found a couple of HDMI input cards [URL] and [URL] that work in linux. Great with one of those I can get it to a computer signal and even get it on standard coax using a VGA2RCA converter and 1/8 inch to rca for audio hooked up to an old vcr set to channel 3 or 4. And for TV's that support hidef I can hook up computers at each to receive the video over gig ethernet.
So the question becomes what is a good app for sending and what is a good app for receiving. Is gig ethernet fast enough for 1080i? what about 1080p? Comcast has multiple hdtv channels over their coax; so how is it so hard to even encode one channel to an hdtv signal to watch on tv. Is there a way to encode the video to hdtv over the coax like comcast? So I can use the tv itself to watch the hdtv broadcast from my computer over the coax?
Can someone provide me with the exact instructions I need to backtrace pulseaudio? I have a bug that a developer is asking me to do a backtrace and the instructions on the ubuntu site aren't very good. I tried exactly what it said and my problem is that it says to "run the program under gdb by doing
gdb pulseaudio 2>&1 | tee ~/gdb-pulseaudio.txt
unfortunately pulseaudio isn't actually starting when I do this (I kill the program before I do this command, I also add the appropriate text file so pulse doesn't auto restart). Not sure what's going on but I'd appreciate any help as I can't get sound out of HDMI (I get it but it dies out fast).
Trying to put up my HTPC with Ubuntu 9.10 but I cant get any sound to work. Im using a HDMI cable between the pc and TV. Computer is an Asrock ION HT/BD 330. Also running a 64 bit version of Ubuntu. I have upgraded all I know or think I know what to do but still with no luck. To start of heres my multimedia.
I have a on-board video card (ATI Radeon HD4200) that capable to output HDMI as well as VGA.I connected both into my TV (which also have VGA input as well as HDMI). Here is the weird thing:IF I reboot my computer (9.10 64bit) with my TV set to display HDMI, then after I login at my workspace, my HDMI display got cut off at the edge! BUT my VGA display correctly when I switch to it on my TV.HOWEVER, IF I reboot my computer with my TV set to display VGA, then after I login at my workspace, my VGA display correctly AND my HDMI display correctly.What's the deal here? I am trying to use only HDMI connection and eliminate the VGA as well as the analog audio wire (which the HDMI audio is another big problem but for another post).
I recently put together a small computer on which I'm running Ubuntu 10.04. The plan here was to test the motherboard out for use in a HTPC running linux, and using smplayer and vdpau (not exactly sure if that's the way to say it), I'm running video just fine out of my HDMI cable, but I'm not having any luck getting any audio.
My motherboard is one of those Zotac Ion Itx G-E with an NVidia Geforece 9400 thingamajig. Customer reviews on New Egg said it handled Linux and Mythbuntu well, and that was my reason for making this purchase. When I recieved my motherboard, I loaded Ubuntu as the instructions said I should, and then I attempted to load the disc with the drivers and that failed. Apparently, the disc was designed to run in Windows. I downloaded drivers from the Zotac website which were supposedly designed for linux, however I haven't had any luck installing these. The terminal keeps saying I need the installer.
I put a hdmi cable on my note, I turned on the TV and ran to is a beauty but when I turned on the video ... the sound did not come. I went to System -> Preferences -> Sound and changed the output to "Digital Stereo (HDMI) output. And no sound came out. The boxes of note works perfectly.
I installed ubuntu 10.4.I am getting no screen on my display by HDMI. I installed after that the nvia driver but it won't work 800*600 by 60hz .My display works fine with Windows 7 on my other computer. I do my first steps with an open scoure OS so does Ubuntu support HDMI?
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. Everything is working fine except I have no sound. When I use the command 'aplay -D hw:0,0 somefile.wav', I can get sound through headphones attached to the headphone jack. But I can't get any sound through the speakers. This is a dual boot desktop and the sound works fine under Windows, so no problems with hardware. The PC monitor is connected through a hdmi cable and I would need sound through the speakers.

I am big fan of Ubuntu and presently doing a lot of research on switching over to Ubuntu from Windows environment.
First things first My desktop basic hardware specs Motherboard: GIGABYTE MA790XT-UD4P CPU: AMD PHENON 545 GPU: NVIDIA GT240 (1GB) RAM: 4GB POWER: 650W HDD: 1TB
I am using Win 7 64bit and installed Ubuntu 10.10 64bit Ubuntu installation went smooth and it got updated...
Everything is fine except couple of things
1. No audio output from HDMI.
2. No Multitasking.
I will elaborate the above issues
1. My comp display is my LCD TV which is connected by HDMI cable, usually I get sound from TV speakers when I use Win 7, however in Ubuntu there is option to select the sound output by HDMI but even though after selecting nothing happens...
2. Whenever I am to listen to music in Ubuntu and if I am doing some other work like copying files or opening multiple files or burning DVD's, music gets stuck or it plays pause by pause...so multitasking problems...
