EDID Override Thread - Page 6

post #151 of 3084
My current devices and setup:

Gigabyte EP45-DS3R
Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Realtek 2.09 ATI HDMI driver
Diamond HD 4870 1GB version
Catalyst driver version 8.542
DVI out #1: 21" LCD monitor
DVI out #2: ATI DVI to HDMI adapter connected to HDMI 1.2 cable which is connected to HDMI in on my Onkyo 806

So in CCC, I only see this in the Graphics Adapter dropdown:
1. ATI Radeon 4800 Series [LCD Monitor Model # + TX-SR806]

My HDMI out on the Onkyo is going to a 1080p Mitsubishi projector.

1. So how do I use the Moninfo program if I can't see the projector, or is this workaround not going to work for me?

2. I also just downloaded the CCC and driver from ATI's website and it's version 8.12. But when I look in CCC Information Center under "Driver Packaging Version" it says 8.542... what gives?

2. Do the folowing:



3. Reinstal the Realtek ATI HDMI Audio 2.09 drivers and Reboot

4. You're good to go with Audio over HDMI

5. Wish a Merry Christmas to RandomFoe and all other people for this great support!

OK, about to lose my mind here. I have gone through all of the steps as described and when I try to update the driver with the modified .inf file, I can get to the last step where I highlight it and hit open, and it does nothing. It just keeps the .inf filename highlighted and goes nowhere. What am i missing? Aargh...
post #153 of 3084
Oops, nevermind...solved the problem myself. Awesome site guys, used the altered file and now my Yamaha HTR-6180 shows up as HDMI and the sound is there! Thanks alot.
post #154 of 3084
It worked like a charm!!!!

I am including my modified file (with a txt extension) that is for the Yamaha 663 and a Samsung 61A750 HDTV. Also, don't forget to install the Realtek drivers.

I have the info for the Yamaha HTR-6180 if someone is interested.

As long as the HTPC knows all the E_EDID info of the receiver, it can output any audio format and any video format that the receiver can cope with, what happens after that is a 'negotiation' between the receiver and the TV. My assumption is that the receiver enquires the EDID of the TV and then outputs the video in a format the TV can interpret.

Isn't that how it works (just asking), this only makes sense of course if the receiver can convert the video format coming in from the HTPC into a format that the TV can interpret, my receiver does this (I think anyway)....

I am wondering the same thing, since I am using a Projector, which does not even support/play any sound (yet oddly it has a hdmi input). So do I only need to make an INF for my Onkyo 806, or do I need to do the same exercise of connecting to the projector first, then the Onkyo, using MonInfo? Also, I noticed 2 sets of data in MonInfo, Realtime and Registry... which set of numbers do I use?
post #157 of 3084
Well I just installed CCC 8.12 and it didn't fix my problem, but when I ran MonInfo I got a "ERROR: No graphics card found" but then it loads anyway, and I was able to pull the following info from my Onkyo 806:

Sorry to take up so many posts in this thread guys, but I am out of ideas and attempts here. Using the above info, I created the attached file, then reinstalled the Reaktek driver and still nothing!

From looking at your inf file, it looks like you've either got (1) too many characters in the two lines or (2) some carriage returns (when you press enter) in there where they don't need to be.

So, let me make sure you did the steps correctly.

First, plug you 4670 directly into the projector. Run moninfo. Copy down the raw data, it should take up about eight lines of text. The first 128 characters (characters being 00, FF, FF, FF... so there are four in this example) go in the first override line in the .inf file.

Second, prior to unplugging the projector, open moninfo and make sure that when you press F5 it refreshes the data displayed. Next, unplug the video cable from the projector and plug it into the receiver. This will be done without anything on the screen. Next, press F5. Go grab a snack or something while the data refreshes, wait like five minutes to make sure its done. Then, unplug from the receiver and into the projector and you have monitor data for the receiver (note, don't hit refresh because you'll lose the Onlyo data). Copy this into a text file. Finally, take the last 128 characters, starting from the very last one, and paste it into the second override line in the .inf file.

Third, be sure that the characters are all in 0x** format (you've already done this, I see). Make sure that the line of characters for each override is one single line with no breaks.

Give it a shot.

If you have other questions, let me know.

Alex

Thanks. I did follow those steps, with the following exceptions:
After getting the projector data, I moved the hdmi cable to the Onkyo, but I also connected my 22" lcd monitor to the 2nd DVI port on my 4870 so I could see what was going on. Also, I did not count the characters for the Onkyo to only take the last 128 characters. I guess I can retry without the LCD monitor hooked up and then double-check everything again.

You have to use moninfo for the receiver with no monitor attached. Only one cable from the HTPC to the Onkyo. If you don't do it that way then the raw EDID data is a mixture of both rather than Onkyo alone. Its key.
post #163 of 3084
Do people think this might fix the issue I have that I can't send DD/DTS (original codecs, not high def ones) over HDMI to my receiver? I have a Denon AVR-4806CL that can accept DD/DTS & 7.1 LPCM (at least it can with other sources) over HDMI.

Most probably yes
post #165 of 3084
Ok, I followed the steps as you stated, but when I unplugged the projector, I plugged that end back into the Onkyo's main hdmi out, and I took the hdmi connected to the hdmi cableTV port on the Onkyo and put that into he dvi adapter that the projector was just in (this way I can still see the display, but does it defeat the purpose of the test?).

Anyway, nothing worked...

Also, when I run Moninfo I always get the "graphics not found" popup, is that normal? I have attached some screenshots where you will see that even though I did one device at a time, the LCD monitor and the Onko were "remembered" and displayed in the list.

So, it seems like the monitor info should be okay. Since it was the only thing connected to the HTPC when you ran moninfo, right? It still said graphics car not found?

When you go to get the Onkyo EDID info, here is what the setup should be.
From the HTPC: ATI DVI-HDMI dongle to hdmi cable to Input 1 of the Onkyo (not HDMI output on the Onkyo).

Try that, i was unclear in my directions. You have to do this with no monitor connected, if one is connected, then you defeat the whole purpose of getting the raw EDID data for each component in the chain.
post #167 of 3084
Here is are the connections I had setup:
1. HTCP-->ATI DVI/HDMI dongle-->HDMI cable-->HDMI input on Mitsubish Projector
2. HTCP-->ATI DVI/HDMI dongle-->HDMI cable-->HDMI input #3 on Onkyo AND
Onkyo output-->HDMI cable-->HDMI input on Mitsubish Projector (the 2nd part shoudn't matter, since Moninfo can't see beyond the Onkyo's input #3, right?)

For both #1 and #2 I am getting the "graphic card not found" error. For both #1 and #2 I am seeing what appears to be remnants of my my previous INF load/install, even though I did rollback to Generic PNP monitor prior to re-doing the Moninfo again. I think the error and the fact that I still see the 22" lcd monitor in Moninfo (which is obviously not connected at all) are the same root cause... possibly the INF needs blown away (uninstall the PNP monitor and reboot maybe?)

wrong- you cannot have anything connected to the onkyo HDMI out. It will see both your AVR and Monitor - the goal is to get an EDID from each separately.

Regarding your graphics card not found issue I would uninstall your video card drivers, run something like CCleaner and reinstall. You should not be seeing that error, it should detect your video card.

Looking at your screenshots it looks like you might have a motherboard with realtek audio, go into your bios and disable this if so. Some folks have had issues with both ATI and MB audio at the same time.
post #169 of 3084
Great, thanks. I will try it again without anything else connected, but first I need to clean up this driver issue. While I did recently install CCC 8.12, I didn't start seeing the problem until after I tried to rollback to Generic PNP monitor from my first attempt to load the over ride INF, so maybe I will just try an uninstall on that first. Although my CCC install was over top of my existing drivers (upgrade) so maybe I do need to do a clean install again.

As for motherboard, yes I am using Gigabyte EP45-DS3R with onboard realtek audio, which I plan to use. Are you saying I need to disable this just for the Moninfo data capture or leave it disabled permanently? Because I plan to use the onboard audio so I can have 7.1 sound over HDMI (the entire reason I bought this HD 4870).

Never a good idea to upgrade ATI drivers, always better to uninstall/reinstall.

I would dissable the on board audio permanenetly if your going to be using your ATI card for video and audio. Thats the whole point of this thread is to be able to use an ATI 4XXX card for both audio and video. Your onboard audio doesn't come into play at all for HDMI audio.

Also their are special realtek ATI drivers that you need to install, the ATI audio device will not work using just the onbaord audio realtek drivers.

The 4870 card and video drivers, realtek ATI hd audio drive,r and the inf edid overide all need to be installed properly in order for you have HDMI audio from your 4870.

I think so. Give it a try, but maybe create a system restore point that you can revert to in safe mode. Other people have used a file for a Yamaha receiver when they had a different brand receiver entirely.

What is the best way to uninstall the CCC and video drivers? I know this may sound trivial to most, but I found nothing in the documentation provided by ATI and I don't want to have to repeat this process over again. I chose to uninstall the card in Device Manager under Display adapters, and also uninstalled the generic pnp monitor. When I rebooted and went into device mgr, ati 4800 series card is under display adapter, and no monitor is listed yet. But what is odd is when I run Moninfo at this poit I still show the 22" lcd and the onkyo (but not the projector), so I am concerned there are remnants in the registry mucking things up (see attached).

Next I went ahead and ran the v8.12 CCC program and chose the "uninstall" option and rebooted. Then ran it again and installed CCC and driver. Generic PNP monitor now shows up in Device Mgr, but when I run Moninfo it still says no graphics card is installed and I still see the old Onky and LCD monitor entries.

As for the proper realtek driver, I am pretty sure I got the correct one from realtek's site, it's called "ATI HDMI Audio Device" v 2.09.

Thanks

Just wanted to let you know that your solution worked like a charm for me. I have a Denon 1909 receiver and a Tatung V42EMGI TV. I got the same error as Mulox with MonInfo (no graphics card detected) but I got the proper info anyway. After reading this thread and understanding what to do it took me about 5 minutes to get things working. You made me a very happy person Thanks a lot guys.

Disconnected cable to projector and connected it to the Onkyo with nothing else connected. Waited 2 minutes, press F5 and then reconnected cable to projector to gather the below data.

What is interesting though is that after my capture session, I decided to look in CCC and noticed it showed the connection as HDMI not DVI (first time I saw this, and I had NOT made any other changes yet or installed the new INF). So I got excited and tested the audio before making any changes and could hear the music track using Media Player! YEAH! So I thought this must have been due to the proper/clean reinstall of CCC. Not sure why, but I decided to reinstall the realtek audio driver and reboot. Well ever since that reboot I cannot get audio now, and I have installed the new over ride inf, etc. and CCC now shows the display as DVI instead of HDMI?! I don't think the reinstall of the audio driver did this... I think it was the fact that I rebooted and somehow the connection was lost and the 4870 thought it was on DVI again?

Hi all... just tried the procedure of creating the new EDID file but having some trouble. Was wondering if someone might be able to look and see if I pieced this together right?
More importantly, I had some questions on the process of gathering the MONINFO data and if I did that correctly.

My equipment:
Samsung DLP TV - connected via HDMI to Denon 5308ci monitor out HDMI.
HP8530p Ellitebook connected via HDMI to Denon 5308ci HDMI port 2.

Installed moninfo on HP8530p.
Ran moninfo and collected Denon data. (Samsung was still connected to it's monitor out port. Not sure if I should have disconnected this)
Next unpluged Denon and connected Samsung to HP8530p and ran moninfo and collected data. Disconnected Samsung and reconnected back to mon out port.

Combined data in attached EDIDOverride file. (had to change to text to upload)
Went to Vista device manager and saw not one but two PNP monitor devices.
One was clearly the laptop LCD, so I upgraded the driver on the 2nd one first, rebooted and tested with no luck.
I then upgraded the 1st device...figured what the heck... rebooted and had the same result.
I'm sure I have something wrong either in my process of collecting the data or perhaps the data itself. I could really use some fresh prospective at this point.

Thanks for all your posts and time! I've learned allot... just not enough to lick this one yet.

Just took a quick look and you might want to remove the 0x at the end of each EDID line. That might cause a problem?
post #178 of 3084
Kmac,
Thanks for looking at my post... I really do appreciate it.

When I placed the data into the inf file I just had "word wrap" on.
So if a line has to wrap due to character limitation... should I end the line with the comma or the last alpha/numeric character?

I just saw the post about the 128 character count posted by redtyler1... I didn't see that in RandomFoe's first post, having to count the characters, but maybe I need to do it that way?
post #179 of 3084
geovoni, should be all on one line without any CRs or special characters. I used notepad so WYSIWYG.

To remove the ATI drivers I use "Control Pannel" - "Programs and features" - Look for ATI in the list and remove, this will run the ATI uninstall utility. Make sure to reboot before running the install program.
