One day my HTPC stopped displaying anything on my TV. I rebuilt the entire machine and when I plugged it back into the TV it shows nothing on the screen. After trouble shooting I realized the connection was showing as an analong connection to a generic monitor. When it does work It shows a sprcific device as the monitor with a digital connection. I have a dvi to hdmi cable to the hdmi of the TV. Any suggestions how to fix this, or is it possible its the TV's hdmi that is causing the issue.
Thing is it was working fine for the longest time, then swapped the MB. Since then I could not get the TV to work, yet brougt it to work and used a VGA cable to a monitor without any issues, take it back home use a DVI and it can no longer find the signal. Then at one point I got it working and thats when I realized the TV was showing correctly. Reboot and it goes back to pnp monitor again and now no longer shows up.
What resolution are you sending over the DVI-HDMI connection to the
TV using the Nvidia 195.xx drivers?do a
Is the TV turned on with the HDMI connection you are using selected when you set the resolution in the Nvidia drivers?
Are you able to perform a F8 SafeMode boot using the TV as the dispaly?
Sounds like the DVI port is not being detected or is not enabled. In Your bios there might be a setting where you select which video card/port is the primary. Can you go to the NV control panel and force detection of the panel or clone the VGA so that DVI works
I am an ATI guy but I think I had a similar problem once that I solved by hooking up a vga monitor and in the CCC I enabled the DVI port as a secondary display, extended mode. Then I made the dvi the primary, shut down, disconnected the monitor, rebooted et voila, it worked on the DVI.
Just giving you something to try.
