No HDMI Display need help with correct uEnv.txt settings
#1
I am trying Ayufan's latest minimal xenial image for pine64
https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/linux-build/releases

It is booting and I can ssh to the board.  All seems fine except I can't get the HDMI port to function.

It is connected to my standard monitor which supports 1080p

Here is the only defaults (comments) I changed.  I've fiddled some with these but nothing not even a hint of communication with my monitor (like a flicker).
I am assuming my issue is just getting these settings correct?  Are there maybe other things I must do to get HDMI working?


Code:
# To enable LCD or HDMI, if not changed it will use default (experimental)
#disp_screen0=lcd or hdmi
disp_screen0=hdmi
disp_screen1=hdmi
# disp_mode=screen0 or screen1 or dualhead or xinerama or clone or disabled
disp_mode=screen0

# USB OTG port mode (experimental)
# otg_mode=device or host or otg
otg_mode=host

# Configure contiguous memory allocation
# This maybe required to be enlarged for 4K displays
cma=384M

# To change HDMI display mode:
# hdmi_mode=480i
# hdmi_mode=576i
# hdmi_mode=480p
# hdmi_mode=576p
# hdmi_mode=720p50
# hdmi_mode=720p60
# hdmi_mode=1080i50
# hdmi_mode=1080i60
# hdmi_mode=1080p24
# hdmi_mode=1080p50
hdmi_mode=1080p60
# hdmi_mode=2160p30
# hdmi_mode=2160p25
# hdmi_mode=2160p24
# hdmi_mode=800x480p
# hdmi_mode=1024x600p

if you are using a hdmi to dvi setup then getting the monitor functional will take some experimenting with settings and depending on your setup may not work. i would suggest trying the latest arch linux build for pine64. it comes with xfce desktop installed. it will help narrow what the problem may be if you test that build.

not sure what you mean "hdmi to dvi setup".    There is no dvi port on my monitor just hdmi.    This is a minimal build of Ubuntu, no desktop and yet unable to get the terminal/cli on the monitor.   On the RPI getting these similar settings "right" in the "config" file in /boot is usually the fix.  I am assuming the same.

I can't imaging that ayufan would make these builds that don't support hdmi on a standard monitor.  I must be missing something here.

Further not really wanting to use arch.  I am very familiar with ubuntu as it my main dev distro for other work.

yes, but if you spend 30min to test if the arch linux build boots and displays then you have a probable solution to get other build running. but, suit yourself.

Burned instead this longsleep image upon which ayufan makes new builds.  It worked fine, not need to try arch.

Obviously it's something amiss in that latest image of Ayufan.

for those finding this thread I jumped back to Ayufan's lastest "stable" release instead of pre-release and that worked fine
https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/linux-b.../tag/0.6.2

for the record , perhaps if you have the time, ayufan has previously requested that issues with any builds be entered in the proper github repo so that he can track the problems with specific builds. thanks.

I had already done this when I realized it was issue with his pre-release.
