What is the easiest setup for Jetson Orin Nano Dev Kit

My current setup is a main Windows Desktop, a laptop running Ubuntu 22 I used to flash the kit and a monitor that supports 1 DP and 2 HDMI inputs.

I am using the monitor DP for the Windows desktop for the high resolution, however I couldn’t get the Jetson Nano to display anything using a DP-HDMI cable, so I am switching the DP port between the two temporarily.

Before receiving the kit I was planning on using it only through a host and though no need for a display, however seeing the Jetpack and the tutorials that are using the GUI tools, I feel like I will be losing some value.
Right now I am thinking about configuring the Jetson for remote sessions and creating a virtual monitor so I can connect to it from my Windows/Ubuntu computers without having it connected to a physical monitor.
My second option is to just lose the GUI and use it remotely with SSH.

I am open to any suggestion the above are just my thoughts, knowing that this is my first experience with this system.

I appreciate any help.


You need a active DP-HDMI cable which has chip inside in charge of converting the signal format between DP and HDMI.

For the dummy display, you may want to do something like this:
