2014-04-16 18:20:40 Mario Limonciello summary HDMI Handshake fails after TV powered off Xfce resets TV mode to NULL when power cycled
2014-04-16 18:23:18 Mario Limonciello description I had an HTPC with Mythbuntu 12.04 installed and all included NVIDIA 185 driver package. Connected to the HTPC is an audio receiver and from the audio receiver a TV. I had no problems on NVIDIA 185. Since upgrading to 14.04 I have tried both the 304.117 driver as well as the 331.38 driver. Both have a new behavior that if the TV is power cycled it no longer detects a link. When this happens I can find in the xorg log that there is an accompanying log item: [ 39829.509] (II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "NULL" Upon recommendations from the internet i've captured the EDID, tried to hardcode the metamodes in the xorg conf, and regenerated the xorg conf using nvxconfig to no avail. The problem persists. Here is my original functional xorg.conf from 12.04 w/ NVIDIA 185: ============================== Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" DefaultDepth 24 EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Default Device" Driver "nvidia" Option "DPI" "100x100" Option "NoLogo" "1" EndSection Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Disable" EndSection ============================== Here is the xorg conf I've cluttered all the workarounds on the internet that still doesn't fix the problem: ============================== Section "Monitor" # HorizSync source: edid, VertRefresh source: edid Identifier "Monitor0" VendorName "Unknown" ModelName "SONY AVAMP" HorizSync 31.0 - 82.0 VertRefresh 57.0 - 63.0 Option "DPMS" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" BoardName "GeForce 9500 GT" Option "DPI" "100x100" Option "NoLogo" "1" Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-1" Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-1:/etc/X11/edid.bin" Option "UseEDID" "True" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Device0" Monitor "Monitor0" DefaultDepth 24 Option "Stereo" "0" Option "metamodes" "1920x1080 +0+0" Option "SLI" "Off" Option "MultiGPU" "Off" Option "BaseMosaic" "off" SubSection "Display" Depth 24 EndSubSection EndSection Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Disable" EndSection ============================== I have discovered that this behavior can be worked around with a simple shell script: ============================== #!/bin/sh #Fix TV state when HDMI link is lost. #By Mario Limonciello <superm1@ubuntu.com> OUTPUT="HDMI-0" BAD_MODE="1280x720" GOOD_MODE="1920x1080" for MODE in $BAD_MODE $GOOD_MODE; do DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output $OUTPUT --mode $MODE sleep 2 done ============================== I had an HTPC with Mythbuntu 12.04 installed.

2019-03-27 01:49:03 Sean Davis description I had an HTPC with Mythbuntu 12.04 installed. Upon upgrading a new behavior that if the TV is power cycled it no longer detects a link with the HTPC. When this happens I can find in the xorg log that there is an accompanying log item: [ 39829.509] (II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "NULL" After debugging with NVIDIA at https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/729955/linux/tv-stops-being-detected/ we've deteremined it's a X client that reacts to the RANDR events causing the mode to be set to NULL. Working through the list in an Xfce environment, the culprit is xfsettingsd. If xfsettingsd is running, it causes the TV to come up in a NULL mode. If it's killed, it remains in the mode it was previously running in. Until this is fixed, this behavior can be worked around with a simple shell script: ============================== #!/bin/sh #Fix TV state when HDMI link is lost. #By Mario Limonciello <superm1@ubuntu.com> OUTPUT="HDMI-0" BAD_MODE="1280x720" GOOD_MODE="1920x1080" for MODE in $BAD_MODE $GOOD_MODE; do  DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output $OUTPUT --mode $MODE  sleep 2 done ============================== [Impact] * When a TV is power-cycled, it is no longer detected as an available display. * The root issue is in xfce4-settings: xfsettingsd. * The related patch correctly handles the NULL mode the TV enters when powered off. [Test Case] * Connect a TV to a computer running xfce4-settings 4.12.0, this can be in a single configuration or dual-monitor. * Power the TV off. * Power the TV on. * Expected: TV powers on and remains connected as an available display. * Actual: TV powers on and is not connected or detected. [Regression Potential] * Regression potential is minimal: The associated patch targets this very specific scenario and behavior, and does not interact with the rest of the codebase.
