Problems with NUC HTPC
I have a DC3217IYE NUC kit running as an HTPC. I have had it plugged into my TV for about a year, and it works pretty well, sound could be louder but other than that no real problems.
I had to buy a new Home Theater all in one and went with an LG model (BH7540TW) with BluRay and 2 HDMI in options – I liked this option as it meant I could put the old TV remote in the drawer, and (hopefully) the sound would stay uniform-ish when switching between HDMI sources.
Satellite TV is working perfectly going into the first HDMI in slot (and 2nd as a way of testing), but when I plugged the NUC into the second slot (and first to test) all I get is sound no picture. I have tried four different cords, even the one that worked for the satellite (two are definitely 1.4) but with the same result.
The kicker is now I can’t get any picture out of the NUC on any display (3 tried). But on a cheap TV I do see the boot screen and can get into BIOS (Clarifying – I get nothing on the other TVs). Again I have tried all my HDMI cables for this as well.
I managed to get it back up and running by doing a fresh install (which I also used as an excuse to upgrade to 8.1), I made sure all the drivers and software was up to date through intel, Microsoft and SlimDrivers. Then plugged it into the BluRay for the same result. No picture on two displays, with Boot screen and Bios viewable on the cheap TV.
So I guess I have three questions:
1 – What is happening?
2 – How can I stop it happening?
3 – How do I get my screen showing again with having to do a fresh install?
Thanks in advance
