ASUS EN9600GT silent/HTDI/512M AVwizard problem
« on: June 17, 2008, 01:55:59 pm »
I have just managed to PXE boot my MD and reached the AVwizard.

This is what happens:

1. TV connected via HDMI: Boot is ok, but AVwizard doesn' t show. No success hitting the 1-key for DVI/HDMI output.

2. TV connected via VGA: Boot and AVwizard shows up ok. But cannot switch to DVI/HDMI by pressing 1-key. The screen goes black and by pressing 2 the avWizard returns.

It seems like HDMI is only enabled on the card if the VGA connector is disconnected when the PC cold boots.

So I tried connecting the TV to HDMI and a second monitor(M2) to the VGA output when the HDMI goes black. I still get the avwizard on M2 but cannot switch it over to the TV on HDMI.

This is a diskless MD with Vista on the internal drive fully working on the HDMI output.

Anny advice is appreciated

Hi,

So when the system initially boots up you see the Kubuntu splash, then the screen goes black and after system beeps you press 1 and no A/V Wizard is presented via the DVI/HDMI port?  O.K.

The restricted nvidia drivers were loaded during the initial MCE setup?  O.K.

I would guess the next thing to look at is your xorg.conf in the MD diskless directory.  From the Core it's in something like  /usr/pluto/diskless/XX/etc/X11.

Post your xorg.conf if need be.  That'll be a start.

Hope this helps.

pigdog,

thanks for reply.

No beep. Sound is next... I'm piping spdif through to the video card via internal spdif link. ASUS mainboard.

But YES to the others.

O.K.

I'm running an NX8400GS on my diskless MD.  (no hard drive period.)

I'm hooked up to a Sharp Aquos LC46D64U 1080p LCD screen.

When you load your diskless MD you need to wait for Diskless_Setup.sh to complete.  The cursor blinks for about 5 minutes before setup continues and the MD restarts.  When the files are downloaded and the configuartion is complete the system will beep.  I hope you are waiting long enough for the beep especially when you have no sound!

Anyway,  our setup are pretty similar except for some wiimote stuff.

In Section "Monitor" since I'm 1080p my Modeline is as follows...
"1920x1080" 148.5 1920 1960 2016 2200 1080 1082 1088 1125

In Section "Device" and Section "Screen" I have option "UseEDID" "true" which allows my monitor to run in 1080p native resolution but I had to add some inputs via web admin to use the correct input on my Sharp LC46D64U.

In Section "Device" Option "ConnectedMonitor" is "DFP"
There are also 2 other options after "DFP"
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"

In Section "Screen" after Option "UseEvents" add the two options AllowGLX and AddARGBGLX again.
Then add Option "TVStandard" "1080p"

In Section "Extensions" add
Option "Composite" "true"

I hope this helps you out.

Cheers.
