i.mx8m HDMI problem

On a custom board equipped with an IMX.8 CPU I cannot make HDMI work. The issue is that upon insertion of HDMI cable and assertion of HDMI_HPD (high, 3.3V), the CPU does not start DDC communication with the Display on HDMI_DDC_SCL and HDMI_DDC_SDA pins. Internal HDMI supply (VDD_PHY1V8) is 1.8V stable. The Problem is not in the CPU module as HDMI works in its Development Kit.
Is there a way to check the status of HDMI_HPD pin? Wich register should I read?
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Hi Antonio

one can try to read "HPD input" in register HPD_PLUG_IN, described in

sect.13.4.10.1.77 HDMI HPD status (HPD_PLUG_IN)

i.MX 8M Dual/8M QuadLite/8M Quad Applications Processors Reference Manual

Custom board hdmi hardware may be checked using i.MX8M Hardware Developer’s Guide

Best regards

Igor,

thanks for your help. The Hotplug signal was correctly reaching the CPU, the problem was a wrong device tree configuration that failed to load the HDMI display configuration.

Thanks a lot,

best regards
