Make HDMI work with Nvidia GeForce 8200 M and Anderson LED TV in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.


Hi,
When HDMI-cable is Connected between My Laptop which is HP Compaq Presario CQ60 and My Anderson LED TV, I get the massage "No Videosource". I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Nvidia GeForce 8200 M grafic card.How do I make it work step by step?

Thnx,
Jetson53

I'll also note you'll likely have to change your audio settings to go out via HDMI rather than the laptop speakers.

No, my primary goal is to get the tv work as an extra Monitor through HDMI

So, you want to spread your display over both your current monitor and your TV?
