Hardware :: Debian Video Card - Nvidia And HDMI ?

Jul 15, 2009

I intend to update my video card to allow the operation of all three of my monitors in a triple monitor configuration. I have a 790i motherboard with Nvidia chips, so I will most likely choose an Nvidia card for the upgrade. As I will need connections for three monitors, I will have to have two cards. It is my intention to have one large screen field spread across all three monitors. I assume the best way of doing this will be to use an SLI Bridge to link the two video cards. Thus the two video cards must be identical.

Question 01: Is this the best way of realizing a triple monitor setup?

While I am upgrading, I desire to also give the system the ability to play Blue-Ray High Def Movie one of the 1920x1200 monitors I will be using.

Question 02: What are the pitfalls of playing BD-Discs on Debian. I know I will be eventually acquiring a BD-Disc player (once the prices come down a bit more), but when shelling out for two video cards, I better think as far ahead as possible and get the two video cards that will do everything I can foresee them needing to do.

Question 03: As all of my monitors have HDMI input ports, I assume that I will need Video cards that have HDMI output ports to play full 1080P movies. Is this a valid assumption?

Question 04: Can anyone recommend a video card that does what I am wanting it to do? (This is to say Two Dual Link DVI connectors and an HDMI connector per video card with standard and high definition video playback capabilities). Keep in mind that I will most likely need to purchase two of them, to the Super Expensive Bleeding Edge cards are probably not going to be a practical option here.

Question 05: Is there a way that I can just play the BD-Discs with full resolution in a window on one of the three monitors I will have connected to the computer without having to go the HDMI route?

Debian Hardware :: Video Card - Failed To Initialize NVidia Kernel Module

Aug 9, 2011

I am trying to get my Debian system running. I have an older Dell Precision 490 with two dual core CPUs. It has 16G Ram, an 150G Intel solid state drive, a 230G data drive, and a 600G backup drive. I have two Samsung monitors attached to the NVIDIA Geforce FX 5xx card. I have been using this machine for several years with Etch, then Lenny, running KDE 3.5. I recently needed to upgrade to Squeeze and KDE4 and have had nothing but problems since. I keep having issues with the video drivers, every time I touch anything the drivers seem to upgrade from the legacy 173 to the current 195.

There have been other library compatibility issues as well (gclib) and the machine has not been stable. This morning the system was running very slowly with X running at 100% (from top) and then the entire system froze. After a hard reboot, X did restart. The Xorg.0.log has the following message:
"Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module! Please ensure that there is a supported NVIDIA GPU in this system, and that the NVIDIA device files have been created properly..."

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio Over HDMI With NVidia Card?

Aug 7, 2011

I am trying to connect my desktop computer to my TV and I need some assistance with using audio over HDMI. I have an NVidia 580 GTX graphics card and I am on Ubuntu 10.04. I compiled and upgraded to newest alsa, so my HDMI audio shows up as one of the sound cards. I also read that I should manually unmute everything that shows up in alsamixer that is related with the NVidia card, and I did that as well. Unfortunately I still don't have any audio.. Here's the output of aplay:

Code:
$ aplay -L

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Lost HDMI Sound With New Vid Card

Jun 14, 2011

The old Nvidia GT220 recently died in my HTPC and I replaced it with a new GT430. Sound over HDMI worked beautifully with the old card (after much trial & error,) but has now stopped working with the new card.Forgot to mention that everything appears to be unmuted in alsamixer. When I run "aplay -D plughw:1,3 /usr/share/ sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav" I get no sound. I do however get sound from the headphone jack when I do the same command for the onboard sound card (0,0)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Best Video Card For H.264 And HDMI?

Jul 2, 2010

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.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Output To 32" LCD (1920x1080) - Nvidia And Video Performance

Apr 24, 2010

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

Hardware :: No Sound Through Inboard HDMI On Fedora 12 With Proprietary NVIDIA Video Driver

Aug 5, 2010

Under Fedora 12, I have installed the proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver successfully and am now attempting to use the onboard HDMI output. (The board has HDMI and VGA out built in.) I am getting a clear picture on the TV screen, although the edge of the screen output hangs off all edges of the physical screen. The HDMI audio output is being detected, but no sound come out of the TV when I switch the sound output from the Analog Sterio Duplex to HDMI Output in the Sound Preferences. Any suggestions, and what further information is required?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Old Video Card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT Now Beginning To Fail - Which Way Is Best, ATI Or Nvidia?

May 3, 2010

I have an old video card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT, which is now beginning to fail and I need to upgrade. I am not huge a gamer but I do play/buy games on regular basis. Right now I'm playing Eternal Lands on the Linux side. Looking to spend $100-$150 on a new card.I have a Core2Duo Wolfdale 3.0, with 2ghz ram and run Lucid 32bit. Also run windows Vista64Ultimate on dual boot (rarely).

I would love to buy a new ATI 5770 or 5830, ATI budget cards seem to be much better for the buck over budget Nvidia cards, but I'm concerned with ATI drivers and long term with Ubuntu.On the Nvidia side I'm considering the GTS 250. The only advantage I can find is lower power consumption with Nvidia and Ubuntu has always preferred Nvidia over ATI, as far as working drivers go.As Far as Ubuntu and Lucid is concerned, which way is best, ATI or Nvidia? Has anything changed with ATI support, that could make theor cards more compatible now and in the future?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install Nvidia Drivers For Nvidia 8800 GT Video Card

Apr 3, 2011

I can't figure out how to install the nvidia drivers for my nvidia 8800 GT video card. I've followed some other posts and all the posts seemed either incomplete, or led me down a path of which eventually broke my installation, that I needed to reinstall the entire ubuntu system.Again, it may not have been broken, i just didnt know how to get back in to the gui version of ubuntu, the instructions took me to the console terminal

1.) I've installed the ubuntu 10.10 64bit for i386 in an oracle virtualBox..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: White Lines On Sony HDTV With NVidia Card Via HDMI

Apr 1, 2010

I've had a look and can't find this particular problem on the boards (feel free to correct me if there is something useful already though). I've recently got a Sony HDTV, and have hooked it up via HDMI to an Nvidia GeForce graphics card. Surprisingly enough, I'd like to watch movies/TV this way. However I'm experiencing flickery horizontal white lines on the desktop, and horizontal lines through video. I generally use VLC to play stuff, and have the 805 Nvidia proprietary driver installed.

So far I've tried:
Changing the resolution and refresh rate (Including the native TV ones)
Using Twinview, Separate X Screen and unplugging my monitor altogether.
Uninstalling the Nvidia Drivers and using the standard ones
Re-Installing the Nvidia Drivers
Xine Player
Changing video output of VLC to X11
Using Force scaling (I think, it's a tv-specific setting to compensate for differences in native resolution)
Switching desktop effects on and off

In short, it doesn't seem to be an issue with drivers, resolution, refresh rate, video files, codecs or players. How to stop these flickery lines as I wouldn't like to have to give up on the OS over one problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Onboard HDMI And A Video Card At Same Time?

Jul 26, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Installing An NVIDIA Video Card ?

Jan 5, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu (or Xubuntu) on a PC that has integrated on board video. After that I want to disable the onboard video and use an NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS video card.

I tried it before, and got a lot of resolution problems.

This is what I did:

- First, I put the card in the PCI slot and modified the bios to use it as the default video, and booted from the ubuntu CD. The installation did not go through as I got no screen output (I guess ubuntu did not recognize my video card).

- Second, I restarted and modified the BIOS so that the onboard video was the default. This worked when I booted from the CD and installed, I got screen output and all. I completed the installation and turned off the computer.

- Third, I installed the card on the PCI slot but did not change the BIOS, booted and used the onboard video, downloaded the NVIDIA driver (190.53) from the NVIDIA website, installed it, and turned off the PC.

- Fourth, I modified the BIOS so that the NVIDIA video was the default, plugged the monitor to the NVIDIA VGA output, restarted, and got ubuntu working at a very low resolution of 640*320.

This is where I am stuck. I can't change the resolution to 1024*768 or 1366*768. I only get 640*320.

Is there any way to avoid all this and do a fresh installation of ubuntu 9.10 with the NVIDIA card already in and as default on the BIOS?

I am thinking the resolution problems started because I got video drivers mixed up with intel onboard during installation, then NVIDIA. I guess I should have removed the intel drivers first before installing NVIDIA drivers. If anyone agrees, how do I uninstall Intel video drivers?

If that is not the case, how do I configure the NVIDIA drivers to work properly?

My PC is an older IBM 8303 KKU at 2.26GHz, with 2GB RAM, 40GB HDD, and a 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS

Hardware :: Nvidia Video Card Overheating

Jul 23, 2010

I have a Lenovo W700 laptop, and have had SuSE 11.1 on it for over a year. Recently, I tried updating to 11.2 and then 11.3. Ever since I tried that, my laptop started shutting down because the graphics card (nVidia Quadro FX 2700m) overheats - when the temperature reaches over 120 degrees centigrade, the system auto-shuts down.

I tried doing a clean re-install of SuSE 11.1 but that didn't help.

I thought it might be a hardware problem, but I can boot the laptop in Windows and it runs fine there. The part of the laptop where the GPU is feels warm, but not burning hot, when running in Windows.

I tried installing nvclock to force the fan to stay on (some of the things I've read seem to indicate a problem with the fan control) but that says it doesn't recognize my card, and when I run it with "-f" it says the card doesn't have fan control.

At this point, I can either run Windows Vista on the laptop, or run Linux in text-mode only; I wasn't able to install a graphical system because it would overheat halfway through the installation.

Software :: Freezing With An NVIDIA Video Card?

Oct 14, 2010

After seven months of digging I've come to the conclusion that the problem is somewhere between kernel and X server. I've tried contacting several firends with guru-like experience, I tried looking for answers on FedoraForum, I asked a question there, and I even started a bug report where the blame keeps being passed around different components.

I thought the problem might be isolated to my system, as I wasn't able to find any concrete info on this. About a week ago, I finished a new build for a friend. The PC has an NVIDIA card (GTX460). I tried Fedora 13 on that computer and I noticed the problem there as well. Actually, it was more pronounced than on my system. You couldn't use the system (friend's build) for more than two hours.

I'd like to get a little feedback on just how spread this problem is. I'm trying to see if it's a problem with NVIDIA cards in general, with Fedora in particular, if it's confined to 64-bit systems, etc.

Whether or not you have this issue, please post about it. Please also post to indicate that you have no problem if that is the case. I'll start the first "report". Please state all the items in your report.

Video Card: Dual GeForce9800GT

Driver: nvidia (latest akmod-nvidia from rpmfusion) but problem also present with nouveau

Kernel: Noticed problem from 2.6.32 (earliest tested) to 2.6.34 (latest tested). I did not test with earlier kernels

Problem: System randomly freezes. In most cases, keyboard and mouse stop responding (CapsLock does not toggle the light on the keyboard). system stops responding to ssh and ping. A hard reboot is required On rare occasions, the ssh login is possible and restarting the X server usually revives the system.

Debian Hardware :: Nvidia GTX 260m HDMI Audio Not Showing Up In Squeeze?

Oct 31, 2010

When i was using windows it shows up and works, so thus it has to have the hardware onboard and the support for it sans the driver. It's incapable of working, i don't know why but it's not listing it, and it's just not working with it. I've tried a million times before to find a fix and they only have them for the desktop drivers and not the mobile ones. I was glad to see that i could finally use a second monitor correctly in linux now but the hdmi audio thing is driving me loopy and there doesn't seem to be anyone else who has posted with this issue before.

Fedora :: HDMI Video Output On F14 - HDMI Does Not Appear As Option

Feb 8, 2011

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).

Debian Hardware :: No Video Output To Second Screen Through HDMI?

Mar 10, 2011

I'm using Debian Lenny with an nVidia 8400GS. Before I changed motherboards (and graphic cards, as apparently AGP doesn't exist anymore) this set-up worked fine, but with the new hardware, I can't use the TV as a second screen anymore: there's simply no image going through. All that's visible on the screen is "No video signal".I've tried the proprietary nVidia driver and nvidia-settings, but nvidia-settings doesn't even see the second screen. I've tried adding it manually to xorg.conf, but again, nothing.

Fedora :: Set Up Any NVidia Video Card Properly With The Proprietary Drivers ?

Jan 5, 2009

Quote:

NOTICE: Some very old nVidia Video Cards from more than 9 years ago might not work with this way, but just try this method because you'll see if there's a driver available for your video card in Fedora or not.

I have been noticing that it was hard to set up my own NVidia video card, and alot of other people shared the same problem as I had. I have been experimenting with some things, and here's what I did to solve it.

It's fairly easy, anyone can do this. Read and follow these instructions:

Install all updates. Although it seems unimportant, it really is.

Go to [url] and follow the instructions to install the free and nonfree repositories

Go to System > Administration > Add/Remove Software

Search the following: nv

Click everything which has to do with NVidia. Do not check the checkboxes yet, but read the descriptions. If you've found your video card in the description, check the checkbox at the left of the title.

Install the drivers by clicking "Apply" at the bottom of your screen.

After installing, go to Applications > System Tools > nVidia Display Settings

Set the properties of your video card, such as TwinView or higher screen resolutions.

After you've set it up, click Apply to preview your settings. Change some settings if you like, and then click Apply when you're done. DO NOT EXIT YET!

Click "Save to X Confguration File, but do NOT save the file. Click "Show preview..." and copy the text in the preview.

Go to Applications > System Tools > Terminal and type "su". Press Enter and enter the root password.

Now type:

Code:

Select all of the text in the document and delete it. Then, paste the text of the "Save X Configuration" window into the text editor.

Exit out of the terminal.

Exit out of the nVidia Display Settings application. Do not save anything from this application.

Log out and log back in to see the changes.

If you want to change some settings, repeat steps 7 - 16.
