      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Need to add HDMI monitor - actually HDMI wireless

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Running Mandriva 2010.2 and using a GeForce 210 video card (if more hardware info is required, please let me know what). Monitor is a Hyundai B90a on the vga port (recognized by system and running fine - hope to upgrade soon to dvi monitor, though).

 

What I am looking to do is to feed the HDMI output from the GeForce (same as I am seeing on the monitor) through a wireless HDMI (Philips) to my TV. Let me say well in front that I am no expert on video, hdmi, etc. In any case, I have attached the HDMI wireless to the GeForce graphics card HDMI port, but the Mandriva system does not recognize it as a monitor, so it appears that I will not be able to use the 'configure your desktop' monitor section to make the hdmi live.

 

How do I go about activating the HDMI output?? I am assuming that HDMI is HDMI, so configuration is not relevant - but of course that could be way wrong too. Hopefully this is dead simple, and someone out there with some hands on can provide guidance..... I'm guessing that I will have to go in and manually edit a file or two.

 

Regards -- Roger

You will need to install the proprietary Nvidia drivers to get the HDMI to work. I had to do the same with my laptop, and then via pulseaudio you will also be able to choose HDMI for the sound output to go to the TV.

Thanks. Sounds like there is work to do..... I also read that the ASUS GeForce card will support 2 monitors, but either 2 digital or 2 analog (not 1 vga and 1 HDMI). That would indicate that the dvi monitor needs to happen first so I can see what I am doing.
