I’m using a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with a Gigabye GA-E7AUM-DS2H motherboard (BIOS F4 08/26/2009, is latest) and Ubuntu 20.04.1 [kernel 5.8.0-43-generic]. It’s a pretty vanilla installation, right now – I’ve used the “Minimal installation” option. I’m using nvidia-460.39.
My problem is that, when connected to my LG TV with my Onkyo receiver, ( TV <-hdmi-> Onkyo <-hdmi-> computer), it boots to a black screen. If I connect directly to the TV ( TV <-hdmi-> computer), then I don’t get a black screen and the Ubuntu GUI seems to be working fine (gdm3).
I enabled debugging by adding “Enable=true” in the “[debug]” section of /etc/gdm3/custom.conf
I’ve tried using the nomodeset option in GRUB, but that didn’t seem to affect this.
When it boots to a black screen, I am unable to use Ctrl-Alt-F1, etc., to get to a terminal. When I use that key combination, nothing happens. However, I can log in remotely via ssh, which I did to produce the attached nvidia-bug-report.log.gz
I’m hoping to figure out how to configure my system so that I may boot properly while connected to the Onkyo receiver.
