Simply open your video player and set the Video Option Output to HDMI. Bye. Paolo.

I've got a 4k display and a fullhd display. After sleep, the 4k display refuses to start, except if my mouse is far right on the fullhd display. If I disable the second monitor, apply settings and enable it again everything works like in 15.10. I've got an integrated Intel graphics card (sky lake).

Had a big D'oh! moment here. Might also help the eternally confused. No Linux was working for me. Found my pc had two hdmi outputs. One on the m'board and the other on the graphics card. Linux was correctly displaying from the graphics card to the TV but failed to set audio similarly. ROSA linux using KDE, found "HDMI2" on the audio output setup. It tested ...

I had a similar issue, it seems a little picky about what it will connect to. It wouldn't work with my monitor through a HDMI to DVI converter or in my TV through its second HDMI port, which is labled as a HDMI/DVI. It did however work in a different HDMI port (HDMI 1). So this is rather a long way of saying try a different port

OK, so after a couple of hours of digging through the Internet and learning shell scripting, I've mashed-up the script below, which brutally switches sound output device to what I want. //edit: I've also added test, if HDMI cable is connected #!/bin/bash while sleep 5s ; do SCR_SAVER_STATE=$(gnome-screensaver-command --query | grep -o "\w*active\w*") ...

I have a similar question with 16.04 with nvidia based graphic card to a Panasonic 26" TV,detected as an 32" if connected HDMI. I could solve the Output Problem, i can see the hole screen with the "underscan" Option, but this doesn't solve the reason for this Fault. The output of "xrandr" is stillgiving the worngphysicalMonitor size and i can't find the ...

Install pavucontrol (I assume you use pulseaudio), run it, set your output device.

whatever happened since this post first appeared and after making the obvious changes in settings, it now looks as if plugging a mouse and keyboard in is enough to wake the external monitor up whilst keeping the laptop lid closed and its screen off.

As with most other issues I have seen here - it was a bunch of random actions that fixed it. Connected to VGA and HDMI - only VGA worked. Created an installation USB for ubuntu 14.04 using "startup disk creator" and left it in the USB. Shutdown using the GUI. Booted into BIOS and changed the boot order to have USB boot first (or so I thought). ...

I suspect the issue is the result of a bug, since I cannot find another cause. At least as a workaround the background script below could be used. The script does the job on my system, but you'll have to try and see. If it doesn't work on your system, we can switch to xrandr to specifically switch of per monitor, but this is the simplest option. Resources? ...

The GTX760 has a DVI-I output connector. Try connecting a DVI to VGA adaptor to it and then connect to a monitor using a VGA cable. If this works then you will be able to play with the different drivers. The article by JoKeR seems very comprehensive.

It seems difficult to figure out the issue from the problems you just described. Primarily, I suspect this could be nouveau issue. If you are installing Nvidia driver, then nouveau should be disabled. One way you can do to disable nouveau is by adding nouveau.modeset=0 as kernel parameter : # grubby --update-kernel=ALL --args=nouveau.modeset=0 and ...

Install the proprietary drivers from Nvidia, since using proprietary drivers will most likely give you a boost and probably fix your issue. I don't know a lot about Nvidia since I am an AMD user, but at least for me, installing the proprietary drivers fixed all of my issues.

I have had similar problems, and all the forums I could find were talking about PulseAudio and AlsaMixer. None of those solutions worked for me. I finally found my solution in updating my Graphic Cards driver from which the HDMI cable was connected following the steps here. You might not have the same grapic cards or any but you might give it a try to ...

I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and a Sanyo TV. After an update or something, the top panel moved off the top of the mirrored display, so I could only see it on the laptop monitor. The fix for me was to adjust the 'vertical pos' from 50 to 25 in the TV picture menu, when you're in the D-SUB input source mode of the TV (because the 'screen' sub-menu is available ...
