    Exclamation no hdmi at all on zbox id 85 plus

    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post here so let me start by a big THANK YOU for answering questions on the forum. First time I post myself but have been there maaany times and always got plenty of useful information, you saved my life (OK not my life but certainly my time) a million times. But for the first time I couldn't find the solution of my problem... here I go :

    I bought a Zotac Zbox (ID-85 plus) and a videprojector (Benq W1070, awesome!) to make myself a nice HTPC setup. Tried it and works great, except... I can't get HDMI port to work ! I wanting to install Ubuntu through HDMI, but had to use VGA to have a display It hasn't worked since.

    The setup :
    - Zotac Zbox ID 85 plus (has intel graphics, no nvidia here)
    - Ubuntu 13.04 (upgraded from 12.10 that wasn't working either, has intel proprietary drivers installed)
    - Videoprojector Benq W1070

    I shall also say that HDMI cable and projector are both working since I connected another laptop on it and it went just fine.

    This is the result of xrandr command, has two HDMI ports (I got only one, looked suspicious to me)

    Code:
    sims@ZBOX:~$ xrandr
    Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 32767 x 32767
    VGA1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
       1920x1080      60.0*+
       1600x1200      60.0

       1024x576       60.0  
       832x624        74.6  
       800x600        72.2     75.0     60.3  
       640x480        72.8     75.0     66.7     60.0  
       720x400        70.1  
    HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    HDMI2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    DP1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    DP2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    Everytime I tried to plug it in and reboot or change projector's source I get "no HDMI signal". Do you see any options ? Or a way to test my hardware (it's brand new but you never know...) ?

    You might find this useful too :

    Code:
    sims@ZBOX:~$ lspci | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
