Hi I've been using Win10 with the Nuc (nuc6cays) for a couple years now but like others I'm having trouble getting my new Samsung HDTV (49" QN49Q6F) to recognize it through the HDMI port. I have searched through the forums and gotten some help and tried a few things, but I'm having trouble with upgrading my NUC. I've successfully flashed the bios with AYAPLCEL.86A.0049.EB but I'm confused about the HDMI firmware upgrade "NUC6CAY-NUC7ixBN-HDMI-Update-1.72". I found this reference in an old post as a possible fix to the HDMI problem, but I'm a little confused on how to work the "Bobcat Aux ISP Tool" software. It seems I'm using this program to run the files found in the "bin" folder, but no matter what file I run, it fails. First all, is this firmware update still relevant? When it comes to flashing bios and firmware/driver updates I'm of the mindset that if it ain't broke don't fix it. If anyone can advise me on which updates to apply to fix this problem please let me know. I was able to find a tutorial on how to install the HDMI firmware, but it said nothing about how to use Bobcat and I don' know what "FW" refers to. The other possible problem is that the tutorial says I must be hooked up to an HDMI 2.0 compliant device which is impossible in terms of the Samsung as hooking up is the problem. I did run bobcat while hooked up to a different HDMI monitor, but I was unable to be certain if this was HDMI compliant.
Beyond that I've confirmed the HDMI cable is fine and that HDMI works fine with the HDTV using a different PC. I spend two or three hours trying to get the HDMI to work including returning and getting the same TV thinking the problem might be with the "ONE CONNECT" box that comes with the TV. This box attaches to the TV with it's own priority cable. At one point, the one connect box feel 2 feet to the floor, then when I picked it up, the HDMI port was recognized, but only for as long as the TV was on. After that it went back to being unable to detect the PC, although it's clear the HDTV knew something was connected to the HDMI port. Hot swapping didn't work and I've tried all 4 HDMI ports available on the TV. I don't get a blank screen or a boot screen or anything. Just the Samsung screen showing it failed to establish a connection.
I realize there are other posts on this topic which I am still exploring.
