Installation issues / Re: No Signal with hdmi cable.
« on: September 12, 2009, 03:44:45 am »
If I boot into the MCE on a VGA monitor I see the A/V menu; however, if I boot in using HDMI I have a blank screen. I know that with 710 installs you can use the keyboard shortcuts to select which input/output option for video you want to use. Those same options do not seem to work with 810, do they? How else can I get the HDMI to be my primary video out?  :-\ ???


PS. I am a "virgin" Linux user, so please use one syllable answers....  :D

I installed 810 and using my VGA output I see the AV menu and the NIC card is recognized. However, I want to connect the computer to an HDMI out. How do I set up the PC directly connected via HDMI if I cannot see the A/V menu? Shortcuts associated with 710 (1,2,3,4,5,...) do not seem to work. Is there a way to connect "blindly"?

When I ifconfig, I get an internal IP of 127.x.x.x - doesn't that mean that the NIC is not recognized? If it is not then I cannot upgrade the kernel over the net. I do not know of the shortcuts in Linux. How can I download the latest kernel and drivers to a USB stick, change the directory into in in the Linux and upgrade the drivers that way? Sorry for too much of novice questioning, but I really do not know where to start.

Please forgive a novice Linux user if this question has already been addressed.   ::)

I noticed that a lot of users are forgoing the 710 for an 810 install. I tried the "official LinuxMCE 710" on my Zotac 330 (A-U) with no luck. The video does not work and when I tried to update the Nvidia drivers the NIC is not there. ifconfig gives me an internal IP. Is this a well known issue? Should I try the 810 alpha release, or should I be doing something more to get this stable release to work? I noticed that the 810 is a much smaller file compared to the 710. Is there something missing out of the 810?  ???

I am not savvy as to Linux at all, and am a rather adapt Windows user. Maybe, I should keep that to myself here...  ::)

Please help.
