Followup: HDMI to any monitor/TV shows a blank screen, but is detected

So there was a solution in the Forums about this topic, similar to mine:

ORIGINAL POST HERE

This person (wildcard, the OP for the above link) has hardware practically identical to mine, but here’s my inxi -G:

$ inxi -G

^ that works if I have the HDMI hooked up and there is an active signal. If not, I get a kernel error about bad display topology. It doesn’t default back to the laptop display until I’ve logged into cinnamon… then I can obviously set it how I want. But if HDMI isn’t hooked up, then I have been renaming the xorg configuration to 10-render-offload.conf.bak … and I got it from another thread, but links are not allowed.

Yes, I read all of chapter 33, most of the NVIDIA wiki… Arch wikis… hell, a liveusb with linux mint wont even boot without “nomodeset” … now with the “solution” or workaround, it makes HDMI the first display for whatever reason… and I don’t want that, because that means I have to tty to a terminal in order to rename and then restart lightdm.service. I tried installing gdm, but it’s not compatible with Cinnamon. Oh, mhwd --listinstalled:

$ mhwd --listinstalled

Warning: No installed USB configs!

That’s pretty much all I have aside from the xorg config file that I can only use with an HDMI device plugged in. Note that my laptop display resolution is 1080p native. It’s a very odd combo… and I just upgraded to the latest LTS kernel for Manjaro 20.1: v5.8.11… no change in how this responds.

Please help? The second I unplug it, I can’t boot or even if I try to restart lightdm, just doesn’t work until it’s void of the custom xorg conf.

This is where I got the custom xorg conf from.

About what topic?

What person?

You cannot start the topic in the middle and expect people will understand. Please, start with what is the issue, then provide link to the topic that was helpful, then explain what else do you need and add info about your hardware,

Also, the topic is bad. You don’t do follow ups, because no one will know or want to look for the original topic.You should provide link in a proper place, like described above.

There are too many similar disputes in the forum and although I saw your posts in different topic, I am also lost what it is about. It’s hard to help. The most info I pulled out of the topic: secondary monitor is blank when plugged in.

Unfortunately AMD/Nvidia combos are pretty rare so it’s hard to find someone who has similar hardware and is knowledgeable to help.

video-hybrid-amd-nvidia-450xx-prime - is a good driver configuration. But what else do you need? I don’t know. I can only tell you that with Intel/Nvidia combo, I use:

video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-450xx-prime
video-modesetting

Maybe you should have video-modesettng too?

On Intel/Nvidia, you need propetary Nvidia drivers and this is clear. But with Intel, in theory you can have Intel and modesetting drivers. On Intel drivers, secondary screen is not working. On modesetting driver, it works.

I don’t know what video-linux is providing but, video-modesetting is providing probably both intel or amd modesetting driver, or something like that and that would detect other monitors.

So at this point I would do a backup, uninstall video-linux and install video-modestting. Reboot and check if secondary screen is working now. If graphical session doesn’t start, open tty bring back the previous settings. See mhwd usage:

The person’s name is wildcard, the OP from the topic at the very bottom: it finally let me put a link there. At first it wouldn’t let me put a link in at all. See right here:

Click here for ORIGINAL POSTHDMI to TV shows a blank screen

I’ll try modesetting with this but it won’t change which display it defaults to. That’s my actual issue. It should boot up whether I have an HDMI signal from a cable or not. I don’t know how to actually get it to recognize my laptop display before the HDMI display. I don’t know how to switch the displays with a custom xorg.conf … so I think explained this as well as I possibly could. That’s the problem, here’s more information about the configuration for this problem:

The other graphics card is an AMD/ATI Integrated graphics, not intel… it’s an NVIDIA/AMD hybrid.

$ inxi -G Graphics: **Device-1: NVIDIA TU117M driver: nvidia v: 450.66** **Device-2: AMD Renoir driver: amdgpu v: kernel** Device-3: Chicony HD User Facing type: USB driver: uvcvideo Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.9 driver: amdgpu,ati,nvidia unloaded: modesetting,nouveau resolution: 1: 1920x1080~60Hz 2: 1600x900~60Hz OpenGL: renderer: AMD RENOIR (DRM 3.38.0 5.8.11-1-MANJARO LLVM 10.0.1) v: 4.6 Mesa 20.1.8

^ Without the current /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-render-offload.conf. i.e. That’s what shows with default configuration

Here’s WITH the custom xorg 10-render-offload.conf:

The reason I said “person” was because I wasn’t sure about the rules when it came to referring to another person/another topic on the forums is all. I’m still new. I even went on IRC and posted the link, making sure to register my nick first. I guess I just never make sense. I posted my mhwd --listinstalled and the reason video-linux is there is because of the AMD, I’m guessing… the rest is in the details given, I’d think…

I’ll try modesetting but from what I’ve experienced, that will also give me just tty and no GUI. After all, I’ve been doing:

sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-render-offload.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-render-offload.conf.bak

followed by

sudo systemctl restart lightdm.service

Then, it boots, but it uses default drivers… and the blank screen for my HDMI occurs.

My xorg config contents for /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-render-offload.conf:

It’s similar to offloading nvidia + intel hybrids/prime offloading. It seems to just feed a signal through the HDMI somehow. It tries to place the HDMI display first, which means it needs a signal to even boot up with that configuration, otherwise, just see above… I’d just restart lightdm with default configuration.

Now, with all of this in order… is it possible I could get some help?

Yeah, it may be, so there is a high chance that when you uninstall it, there will be no graphical session. This is why it’s important for you to know how to enter and use tty, and how to reverse changes. Maybe someone come here and confirm that with AMD this configuration is OK and must stay.

If the issue is that the laptop screen is not lighting up, then probably this is something different and the experiment with modesetting is probably not going to work. I’ve seen rarely cases about laptop screen not powering with multimonitors, but I don’t remember what was the cause back then. I also don’t know enough about AMD/Nvidia combo to say how xorg and nvidia configs should look like in your case.

I guess you need to read some arch wiki articles and some forums about multimonitors, xrandr, amd/nvidia settings, etc.

Did you try xrandr? It also sets specific settings to xorg for each monitor?

What does xrandr shows about your monitors?

xrandr --listmonitors

Monitors: 2
0: +*eDP 1920/344x1080/194+0+0 eDP
1: +HDMI-1-0 1600/443x900/249+1920+0 HDMI-1-0
`
also tried:

xrandr --setmonitor test auto eDP,HDMI-1-0

still black/blank. With the 10-render-offload.conf, it looks a tad different, but technically works for expanding displays… the problem, then, is the assumption it seems to make with this xorg config:

xrandr --listmonitors
Monitors: 2
0: +*eDP-1-0 1920/344x1080/194+0+0 eDP-1-0
1: +HDMI-0 1600/443x900/249+1920+0 HDMI-0

I tried then doing xrandr --delmonitor test

then i tried xrandr --setmonitor newtest auto eDP-1-0,HDMI-0 … still doesn’t seem to change anything, this was a suggestion on IRC… not sure if it’s even correct. Doesn’t change a thing. Still can’t log out and log back in without that monitor and a signal from the monitor. I spoke to wildcard, by the way… he just said he had no other option and uses the offloading configuration temporarily, just as I am. I’ve been tty’ng in order to change things back to defaults lol… I can use the terminal, that’s not what I’m worried about.

I can’t pretend I understand the situation, but I think that in Linux you can’t use two GPUs at the same time for X, or at least that was the case in the past. Xorg was always tied to one GPU and making other GPU working at the same time was a hack (bumblebee, nvidia-xrun).

Since Nvidia 435xx drivers, there is some utility to use two GPUs, but it works that way that one GPU is the main one and is used for everything, while the other one is turned on and accessible on demand with environmental variable.

Intel/Nvidia combo is often and well established, while AMD/INTEL GPUs is super rare.

So the situation is this: your setup is defaulting to one of the GPUs. I don’t know which one. Then you try to force the second screen to be used by other GPU. The issue is, the other screen is not a window that can be turned on on demand. So this off-loading shenanigan is necessary.

What I suspect is that you are doing it wrong. On Linux, you can have those two cards, but use only one GPU for both monitors and then the other GPU for certain apps. The only way to have two monitors on different GPUs would be to use pass-through, but how to do it - I have no idea. I’m not familiar with that topic.

I may be wrong. It’s just what I deducted from what I know or observed.

What are the errors?

And please run xrandr --listproviders.

So far that’s been the general explanation.

With defaults, it’s got the NVIDIA and AMD rendering separated… you mentioned the “past-through” … that’s what the current xorg.conf does… it offloads the rederers through the HDMI in order for it to get a picture… but I’ve definitely got the conf slightly wrong. I just don’t know where I’m right with it. It’s not a 1 or 0 type of thing. If I could just get the xorg.conf set correctly it’d probably work fine.

The Xorg configuration looks OK to me.

Oct 02 14:41:51 NITRO5 kernel: [drm:mod_hdcp_add_display_to_topology [amdgpu]] *ERROR* Failed to add display topology, DTM TA is not initialized.

then when I plug the HDMI back in, I do sudo systemctl restart lightdm and it boots to the monitor (HDMI).

and as per request: xrandr --listproviders with the current config:

$ xrandr --listproviders
Providers: number : 2
Provider 0: id: 0x1b8 cap: 0x1, Source Output crtcs: 4 outputs: 1 associated providers: 1 name:NVIDIA-0
Provider 1: id: 0x1f0 cap: 0xf, Source Output, Sink Output, Source Offload, Sink Offload crtcs: 4 outputs: 1 associated providers: 1 name:Unknown AMD Radeon GPU @ pci:0000:05:00.0

Well, it won’t default to the laptop display… it should work without it plugged in with a signal coming from HDMI. Otherwise, gotta tty and revert to defaults, or you see the above kernel error.


In the future, when providing code/output, please copy-paste that output in-between 3 backticks ``` at the beginning and end of the code/text so that the output looks like this:

instead of like this:

I have some more info, I suppose… it’s a kernel error of course and everything just hangs/freezes, and I’m posting it here because, otherwise, it’d basically be like cross-posting. I looked up AMDGPU on google, google groups, linuxquestions, arch linux forums, followed a boatload of arch wikis, IRC, now these forums… I’m getting nowhere. Even the AMDGPU wiki… which I will admit I have trouble following. I can’t tell if it’s just the amdgpu driver or what. I’m sorry if I’ve been agitating. I have been trying really hard to get this right and now I’m running into something I really don’t think I can debug without help.

It seems to happen after a few days of uptime… regardless of configuration. Error via journalctl:

You’ve never posted a full inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host but whichever kernel you’re on, try 5.4 LTS (Long Term Support) and 5.9 RC6 first.

:thinking:

5.4 LTS doesn’t boot without a kernel parameter I’m forgetting right now… ;/ 5.9 rc6 I think I’ve tried already. ;/ I’ve been running 5.8.6 and now 5.8.11 … i’ll report back on 5.9 rc6 again, just in case it won’t boot. here’s inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host:

Try the following:

  • Blacklist the AMD GPU driver
  • try the 440 series of nVidia

If that doesn’t help, do the reverse and report back, please?

That doesn’t seem to be a kernel error, but rather a problem in the radeonsi Xorg driver.

I also thought that… I’m not sure why though. It’s not really being used, radeon doesn’t seem to be loaded…

but could it be part of the amdgpu driver? or… microcode? Blah. Tough to narrow this down. About to blacklist amdgpu it and just see what happens. :confused:

Unfortunately, lightdm crashes incessantly and I can only tty if i blacklist amdgpu. No GUI.

I’ve tried the ‘hybrid drivers’ 450x… 440x series doesn’t work. As well as nvidia-only 440x. Reporting back. I just want to thank you for sticking with me and not getting too frustrated with me.

Edit: Installing kernel v5.9 rc6 again, btw… just to make sure we’re aware that I’m trying that one more time along with trying the 5.4 LTS kernel. I’m tryin’… heh.

Okay… Wow. This makes a boatload of sense. I’m not sure if this is cross-posting… I don’t see any threads about this. That’s my exact processor. I just looked up “Ryzen 5 4600h linux drivers” on google.

I know this provide little info but… I’m about to try optimus-manager as i’ve noticed that there’s a new version merged with amd support… not sure if the package is updated yet but I can just do a PKGBUILD to try.
