http://ubuntuforums.org – I just wiped Win7 and installed Ubuntu 12.10 on the laptop that I use as an HTPC. After I got everything set up, I plugged in my HDMI cable and went to Displays to try to turn on HDMI. No luck! Only my laptop is listed when I have HDMI connected. xrandr doesn't see that the TV is connected. And when I go to Sound, it doesn't show any options for HDMI. The TV is circa 2009-2010. Could it be an issue with the EDID?
