C1+ and HDMI output

Unread post by htpcinc » Wed Nov 20, 2019 4:03 am

I want to be able to attach a c1+ box running Libreelec to a hdmi input on HP monitor, so I can do setups, trial runs and such before returning to its living room home.

No output showing on monitor. Do I need to add special driver, change a setting or what? Can this be done?

Can you check the resolution difference between the HP monitor and your living room TV?

Can you tell me the file name of LibreELEC OS image to reproduce the issue on our side?
Where did you download the image?

We will test the OS image with a couple of HDMI monitor and TV and get back to you early next week.

Meanwhile, try this official Ubuntu OS image to narrow down root causes.

I am not a Linux guru by any means. Just into the kodi media side of things.

I did try running a HDMI to VGA conversion cable from the Odroid HDMI output to Hp monitor VGA input and it did display correctly on the VGA input. Still no output on HDMI input of the monitor.

Hi.

I have tested LibreELEC 8.0.4a from your link.
I can confirm that its HDMI output to the HDMI input on our two monitors and one LG TV is working normally.

Please try to use our official Ubuntu image as @odroid said.
