I just a cheapo one online to Switch between 2 laptops and ATV1 on a Monitor.
The switch, does some auto detection and for some reason the laptops can drive the output, but ATV1 output is a bit finicky.
If I play a video directly to Monitor, keep it going and then connect it via Switcher it works.
But, if I boot from scratch or sometimes from idle mode, then it wont show me the ATV1 output via the Switch.
I am wondering if there’s some settings in OSMC that can be tweaked to drive this?
Or if anyone else is using some inexpensive HDMI Switcher that they can recommend/ link to? (Amazon/ Ebay?)
PS: Is there a more recent ATV1 OSMC release? I havent see the TINY update available pop up notification icon in a while…
The latest version of OSMC is 2016.08-1 (August)
Thanks Just noticed the downloads list. For sake of stable behavior on ATV1, should I go to Aug or slightly older build - July/ June?
Any thoughts on what/ why ATV1 + OSMC does differently with/ on the HDMI output as compared to a Windows laptop?
All ATV builds are stable. Always use the latest.
Your PC behaves differently because it’s a completely different device running an entirely different OS and set of drivers. You should configure an EDID via Xorg.conf
Thanks for the insights. I did google for it and it brough up lot of resuls - configure an EDID via Xorg.conf - Recherche Google
Could you point me to the one that fits best (as a HOW TO) with your advise? Thanks.
Thanks. But this is for component output. What should I change/ do for the HDMI output?
