    Thumbs down LCD TV over hdmi. Dual screen. Flashing/Blinking screen when hdmi audio is on.

    Hi,

    When I connect hdmi cable from laptop to my LCD TV, the screen eventually blinks/flashes. It becomes intermitently on/off.

    It only happens when I enable hdmi audio.

    How could it be fixed?

    PS:
    ubuntu 12.04
    dell inspiron, 1525
    intel 965

    I tried the xorg edgers ppa, but the problem remains.

    The screen is blinking when I plug the HDMI cable from laptop to TV and set the audio to HDMI audio.

    Thanks.

    I still wait for help.

    Your problem has already been solved here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2045313

    All you have to do is

    1. open a terminal
    2.
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa
    3. Type your password
    4 Find this line
    ### Automatically suspend sinks/sources that become idle for too long
    load-module module-suspend-on-idle

    5.Make it this
    ### Automatically suspend sinks/sources that become idle for too long
    #load-module module-suspend-on-idle

    6.Logut or reboot

    and yes I know this post is almost a year old, but I've been looking for a solution to this problem forever and just happened to stumble upon the solution above.
