Let me help you with this.
Please note that using the Blu-Ray between the TV and the NUC is similar as using a video converter/adapter. This can cause loss of information when sending the signal causing a black screen or no post at all.
My recommendation is to update the BIOS of the NUC to latest. Here you have the link:
In the case you have a much older version, please go updating it one by one if possible so you don’t brick the chipset. Here you can get more BIOS versions:
I would also like to know what happens if you connect the NUC directly to the TV? Perhaps updating the Blu-Ray firmware do the trick.
Thanks for responding Kevin
I did the update to 055 (was at 048). This was the result, and the order I did it.
Update done on Cheap TV/Monitor (Kogan) - after reboot Windows boot logo to no video
Through Main LG TV - Video and Audio (audio through TV not through Optic to Blu-Ray) cable swap to
Through LG Blu-Ray - No Video, but sound through Blu-Ray; cable swap to
Main TV - No Video or Sound. Restart See nothing but the TV is detecting something as it isn't giving the no signal notice
Through - Win Boot Screen, then no Video
Through Second Smaller LG TV (baby brother to main one) - Video and Audio.
Back to Blu-Ray - No Video or Sound swap plugs to
Back to main LG - No Video or Sound
Back to Kogan - Video and sound
Back to main LG - Video and Sound (through TV)
So something is happening when it connects to the Blu-Ray that is (maybe) affecting the settings.
Blu-Ray has a manufacturing date of October 2014 (so very new), and the Firmware is up to date.
I can't see a reason (anywhere) why it won't work through the Blu-Ray. What can I try next?
Ok I have made progress of sorts.
I managed to get the display up by fiddling with the Hz. Was working with two displays to get it to work - TV (Kogan) and the BRay.
A few lingering problems:
- While both plugged in sound pumps through the Kogan.
- When I unplug the Kogan, Video disappears through the BRay, but sound is then going through the BRay.
- The Win+P key combination will only work with Extend and Second Display options. PC only and Duplicate have blank screens all around.
- Through the control panel the Identify Display option (where it shows a 1 or 2 up) is wrong. The photo I took with my phone (link below I hope) is of the Kogan Screen, which is Screen 2 on the drop down menu, but is being identified as 1.
On the plus side when I plug the Kogan back it I get both displays back, which wasn't happening before.
It is very close (I think) but I scrapped the bottom of the barrel for my knowledge a couple of days back.
Can anyone suggest where/what next?
If possible try to boot from an Ubuntu 14.10 iso and see if you get the same behaviour there (because then you could nail it down to if its hardware related or if it is software/driver related)?
Sorry for the delay, school holidays so a lot happening with the kids.
Booted to Ubuntu 14.10 had the BluRay connected at the same time as the Kogan. BluRay wasn't showing initially, but clicked something on the display settings and they both popped up - side note Ubuntu detected the BluRay as LG 32".
I disconnected the Kogan, and the display stayed up on the BluRay output. I cued up a Youtube Video, but there was no sound. Clicked the sound settings link in the top menu bar, and screen immediately went blank but sound started.
Rebooting couldn't get the display to show on the BluRay output.
Hope this helps.
