Unhappy HDMI problems with different drivers version

Hi everybody, I'm experiencing different level of problems with the hdmi output of my HP G60-128CA laptop on my HDTV and DENON receiver.
Only whit the 173 driver can I get the video to display on my HDTV(no sound). Now, both on Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10 the only driver that works is the 173, the two current versions : 195 and 260 don't give me video display and no sound. From my researches over the net I understand(correct me if I'm wrong)but there is no support for the HDMI sound for the 173 version.
So if anyone can give me a hand...

Can you please supply an NVIDIA bug report; see the forum sticky posts.

173 may well not support HDMI audio. It'd best best to solve your issues with the more recent drivers, assuming your GPU is supported by them.

Default Re: HDMI problems with different drivers version

I see you have your monitor plugged into a DVI port. Does your machine have a VGA port too?

Can you please try the following two experiments, with the latest 260.19.29 driver installed:

a) Reboot with DVI attached. Per your comments, you won't get any video. Now, disconnect your TV from DVI and attach to VGA.

b) Reboot with just VGA attached. Does your TV display something now?

If that's not the problem, can you please try running nvidia-settings, go to the page for your TV, and change some of the GPU scaling and related options. Do any of those cause the TV to work?


Finally, your bug report is a little confusing; the X log mentions states that only a 1366x768 digital display was attached (which I assume is your laptio display), yet later mentions a "SONY TV". Can you please recreate the bug report after having rebooted with the TV attached, and then attempting to enable it via nvidia-settings.

Thanks.

Something must be wrong here because my laptop only as vga and hdmi display ports and so does the HDTV. No DVI.

I now the vga option is working, I used it before, and it's working now.

i did saw something strange when i was in the nvidia-settings: the information about the flat panel didn't appear until i select the xscreen tab in the X display configuration and force the detection, before that if i use the detect display in the other tab noting append an there was no information.

For the GPU scaling and related options, noting that i try did it.

concerning the driver my distro use the 260.19.06 not the .29.


so I'm giving you an other log, hope you can find something helpful.. I really would like to use the sound through HDMI for my Denon home teather.

papaeric,

For you r260.19.26 log, could you please attach your TV to the HDMI port not the VGA port, reboot and regenerate the log file; the log you provided was with your TV attached to the VGA port as far as I can tell, which you said works OK.

I'm also having an issue with connecting my Dell laptop to my HDTV via HDMI cable. Its a Dell Studio 14z Laptop w/ Ubuntu 10.10 installed and the video hardware is listed as "NVIDIA MCP79MX"

I've tried searching for that particular product and I can't find anything on it.

ANY help would be really appreciated.

Cheers
