Checking all the information you have provided (by the way excellent description)I think you are having a similar problem to the one discussed here https://communities.intel.com/thread/39881
I wonder what happens if you connect the NUC with a monitor? Have you tried updating the TV’s firmware?
I would also like to get more information so can you please provide the dxdiag report, graphics report and system information?
How to get it?
Dxdiag Report: Type dxdiag in Start Menu> open> Save> Attach using Advanced Editor Options.
System Information: Click Start> Type System Information> Click File> Export> Save File> Attach using Advanced Editor Options.
Graphics Report: Right click on desktop> Graphics Properties> Options> Drop Down Menu> Information Center> Save> Attach using Advanced Editor Options.
Thank you for the reply. Shame on me for missing that huge topic...
Regarding your questions:
1) Unfortunately I don't have a monitor at hand. I might be able to test this in a week or so.
2) My TV's firmware is up to date (sony KDL-32w655a)
I do have an update on my side:
- When using the mini display port, I no longer experience the intermittent blackouts while watching a video. I'm not that much into the technicalities of the display port, so I don't really know what the important difference is with HDMI. Could it be that HDMI sometimes re-establishes its handshake, while mini-display does not?
- When I enable 'Deep S4/S5' in the bios. The black screen from boot no longer occurs. I can now shutdown windows and restart at any time without issues. However, this deep S4/S5 mode also disables the infrared receiver, so I can no longer turn the unit on with a remote.
With these workarounds the nuc suits my needs. I can however still provide you with the files you asked for, but I'm not sure if they are of any help? I cannot create these reports without a screen (and I think graphics and dxdiag reports should be from the 'troubled state'?). I can RDP into the machine and fetch the reports, but I think that I then get a report from the 'virtual display'?
