My laptop connects to 46" Sony Bravia LED TV using HDMI cable in Windows without any problem. However, it just doesn't work with Ubuntu 12.04. It always says No Signal.

Problem somewhat persists after upgrading to 13.04. Bravia detects my laptop as a connection now but I am unable to display anything.

What drivers/applications should I install to connect via HDMI?

What do you see, when you open System settings > Displays ? Is the Bravia there at all? Do you know which graphics adapter your laptop has, or if you don't know, could you include the output of sudo lspci -nn from a terminal? –  taneli Jan 9 '13 at 7:37

1 Answer 1

It should work as it is.

  1. Plug your HDMI Cable.
  2. Go to System settings --> Displays --> If detected, External display will be available there and you get the option to Mirror or have multiple displays.
