Hello,

There is a case of setting brightness on a hdmi display with imx8mq board.

The hdmi display can support adjusting brightness by DDC/CI protocol, which already implemented in windows application.

So how can I do in imx8mq to set brightness by DDC(HDMI_DDC_SDA, HDMI_DDC_SCL).

 

Thanks very much.

Hi,

     I tried the attached recipe for ddcutil and it can detect the display however I got a "DDC communication failed" error:

    root@imx8mp-var-dart:~# ddcutil detect
    Invalid display
    I2C bus: /dev/i2c-6 
    EDID synopsis:
    Mfg id: MST
    Model: MStar Demo
    Product code: 48
    Serial number:
    Binary serial number: 1 (0x00000001)
    Manufacture year: 2010, Week: 10
    DDC communication failed

    Any suggestions of how to fix it?

    Thanks a lot!

    Regards,

    Tom

Have you found a way to do that correctly with the imx8mq? @edward_fu @tomsong

Hi Zhiming,

 

Thanks for your quick reply.

The solution is general , but is suitable for imx8mq? Because the ddcutil tool you mentioned need i2c-dev module to be loaded. As we know imx8mq DDC uses HDMI_DDC_SDA, HDMI_DDC_SCL not a common i2c.

Thanks again.

Edward

And bitbake ddcutil

Hi

 

Thanks for your support. One question, the solution you suggested is still using ddcutil, just compling with yocto. Is it the same with apt-get install ddcutil? 

Another question, the .bb fiel you provided indicated that dduutil tool depends on x11(xserver). But as I know imx8mq only supports wayland.
