View Full Version : [ubuntu] Acer Revo ION

December 3rd, 2010, 04:26 PM
I have booth the Acer Revo with ION on board.
I also got original NVIDIA drivers from repository.
Ubuntu 10.04 works great, apart from one thing - video goes only throw VGA, and nvidia-settings shows only one display.
Is it possible to get video and audio signal throw HDMI?
Thx for any help.

PS I also tried Ubuntu 10.10 - the same problem.

I had a similar problem with a small form home theater pc (Zotac Ion) where I am running 10.10 and XMBC. I had to check a couple of settings in the Alsa
In terminal type "alsamixer" if the hdmi appears there make sure that it is not muted.

If the hdmi does not appear there or has a value of "00" that cannot be changed follow the instructions for editing the alsa config file in the link below. I only had to add 2 or three lines to the file.

If you have never altered these files before it easier than it looks. I am a new user and I used "vi" to edit the config file.

If you are completely new to linux there are a lot of great posts about editing config files and audio settings.
