iMX8QM-MEK HDMI Output 2400x900@60 Problem

Hello,

I have built a yocto distro for fsl-imx-xwayland and iMX8QM-MEK machine with v5.4.70 kernel version as below.

yocto_imx8qm-mek.jpeg

I wish to output from 3 panels: 2 of them are LVDS outputs and 1 of them is HDMI output, all of them at the same time.

2 x panels have physical resolution 1920x720@60 and connected to iMX8QM-MEK eboard via LVDS lines with dual mode as represented figure below.

iMX8QM-MEK_LVDS_connection.png

1 x panel has physical resolution 2400x900@60 and connected to iMX8QM-MEK eboard via HDMI port.

* When I use the attached DTS file imx8qm-mek-hdmi.dts.txt, 2400x900@60 panel works fine which is connected to HDMI port. But there are no outputs on LVDS panels.

* When I use the attached DTS files imx8qm-mek-jdi-wuxga-lvds1-panel.dts.txt and imx8qm-mek-jdi-wuxga-lvds1-panel.dtsi, both 1920x720 LVDS panels work fine but there is no output on 2400x900@60 panel which is connected to HDMI port. If I unplug the HDMI connection from 2400x900@60 panel and plug a standard 1280x720@60 PC monitor via HDMI port, there is an output (works fine) on that PC monitor.

On the other hand, I have set the u-boot bootargs variable to adjust the HDMI output setting as below.

 

bootargs=root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootwait rw video=mxcdi0fb:RGB24,2400x900M@60,hdmi video=mxcdi1fb:RGB666,XGA,di0_primary ldb=di1 ip=none

 

How can I output from all of the panels (2 x LVDS 1920x720@60 and 1 x HDMI 2400x900@60) at the same time. What should be the rootcause of that problem ?

Note: DTS files are attached.

We cannot meet the criteria I show in the figure. What do I need to do to provide the resolutions in the options given here? 

Even though I took 2 LVDS and HDMI together, it was not possible to reach the resolutions I wanted and shown in the figure.

Can you provide the source for the slide "Seeris Display Output Capabilities"?

Can you also provide video mode definitions and/or EDIDs for the displays that you tried?

The current driver has a single display pipe width limit of 2560 pixels. This means that 2 2560 width displays are possible on a single display pipe. Which also means that up to 3 or 4 2560 width displays are possible. Or one larger display up to 5120 pixel width and two displays up to 2560 width.

Oliver

Hi @OliverB ,

We had already shared the EDID of our panel you before as zipped file.

 

Thanks.

Hello @OliverB  ,

We are trying to get at least 2 panels (one of them HDMI, one of them LVDS). Now 1 LVDS(1920x720) and 1 HDMI(1920x720) work fine. However when we changed HDMI with 2400x900 monitor, there is no image in the monitor. You can see reference slide as attached. Could you please give a way to find root cause of this issue?

Best regards.

hkaracali and  tuncayyldrm,

Are you working with nevozade? If not please, start another thread to avoid confusion. 

nevozade, 

Can you provide the full boot log as follows:

  1. Leave the HDMI monitor unplugged boot until the prompt. Both LVDS panels should be working. (If not you need to investigate.)
  2. login
  3. run "dmesg -c"
  4. Run "modetest"
  5. plug in the HDMI monitor.
  6. run "dmesg -c"
  7. run "modetest"
  8. Save the full console dump and send it to me.

Sorry to keep asking for logs, but this may be the only way I can help?

Regards,

Oliver

Hello Oliver,
We got the boot log which you asked for. Here we ran “dmesg-c” and “modetest” commands without HDMI. Then we tried to complete the same process after plugging in the HDMI, but we couldn't get a new log with the "dmesg -c" command. After rebooting, we repeated the same process with HDMI plugged in and saved the log files separately in this way.


With “imx8qm-mek-jdi-wuxga-lvds1-panel.dtb” dtb, the log file created when HDMI (2400x900@60) and 2 LDVS (1920x720) are connected: log_with_HDMI.txt

Hi @OliverB ,

Is there any progress after comparing these logs with modetest command? We will be glad if you inform us.

 

Thanks,

Hi,

From the logs it seems we are using different kernel versions. You are using this version:

...

I was using the latest from the branch origin/imx_5.4.70_2.3.0 and then applying my patch:

This is a proof of concept with no resource conflict checking. It is important
that the HDMI display is less than 2560 pixels and the pixel clock is less than
300 MHz or LVDS0 will not work.

Can you update to the latest version on the imx_5.4.70_2.3.0 branch and apply the patch I sent? I found that when I use the same version as you are using I get no display on LVDS or HDMI.

Hello @OliverB ,

We apply the necessary patches and kernel updates on our Yocto project as you mentioned. However, there is nothing to change (no display on 2400x900 monitor HDMI output). Is there any idea or progress about this issue?

Regards,

 

Nevzat.

Hi,

I'm not sure what the issue is that you are facing. I have also tried my patch with a Dell QHD Monitor 2560x1440@60Hz on HDMI. Both LVDS and HDMI monitors are working. What I would do if I had your setup using my patch...

  1. Verify that both LVDS Monitors are working as expected with HDMI monitor disconnected. If both LVDS displays not working, debug and fix this configuration. 
  2. With both LVDS connected, try different HDMI monitors in addition to the 2400x900 monitor. I recommend trying a few monitors with different resolutions like1920x1080-60Hz and 2560x1440-60Hz. Be sure to reboot the iMX8QM after changing each monitor. 

There may be some issue with the 2400x900 monitor you are using. Can you provide any additional information about the monitor? (Manufacturer, data sheet, specifications,...)

Regards,

 

Oliver

Hi @OliverB,

I just wonder that your monitor resolution is 2560x1440; but is it fullscreen? Because our motinor supports only one resolution as 2400x900. When we use a different monitor, it works but all resolutions are same on three monitors as 1920x720. We want to use 1 Lvds 1920x720,  1 HDMI 2400x900 as both fullscreen. Do you have any idea about that can we use two monitors with two different resolutions? Or is it about different resolutions?

Best regards.

my current setup is as follows:

HDMI 2560x1440 Dell monitor. Also used Quantum Data 980B with 2400x900 EDID

LVDS0: 1920x1200 NXP Dual Channel LVDS Panel (jdi,tx26d202vm0bwa)

LVDS1: 1920x1200 NXP Dual Channel LVDS Panel (jdi,tx26d202vm0bwa)

All the displays are at full resolution (see modetest output). Your modetest output will show you the resolutions from the display controller. 

What resolution do you want for each display? I may be able to test it with a LVDS-HDMI converter instead of a panel. 

Regards,

 

Oliver

Hello @OliverB,

When we tried to get the log you requested from us, we encountered the error that the 'modetest command not found'. Several solutions we found on the internet did not help us run the modetest command. We saw the message that libraries such as libdrm-dev already newest version installed when we tried to install some libraries. Do you have an alternative for modetest or an idea to solve this problem instead ?

You may be using the core-image-minimal. Can you start a new yocto build with imx-image-multimedia or imx-image-full?

Alternatively, you could use the prebuilt images to test this also from here:

 https://www.nxp.com/webapp/Download?colCode=L5.4.70_2.3.0_MX8QM&appType=licens

Then you could build the kernel sources from here:

https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imx/linux-imx 

branch: remotes/origin/imx_5.4.70_2.3.0

Remember to apply the patch attached here. I found the dts file was missing -  sorry. So use this patch!

And Finally set the boot environment: 

=> setenv fdt_file imx8qm-mek-jdi-wuxga-lvds0-lvds1-panel-hdmi.dtb
=> saveenv
Saving Environment to MMC... Writing to MMC(1)... OK
=> boot

Yes @OliverB , we are working together on this issue, you can accept their replies like I wrote.

No problem for us to ask logs or other files, we all aim to solve this problem. Sorry for responding late, we are in very far time zones. We are going to provide what you requested.

Thanks,

Hello @OliverB,

Yes. We are working with nevozade. So we can go on from this issue. We will send logs tomorrow. Because we are not in the office right now because of time zone difference.

I was able to get HDMI working with LVDS0 and LVDS1. The HDMI display needs to be limited to 2560 pixels or less and less than 300MHz pixel clock. Otherwise LVDS0 will not have a display. In this patch I also had to disable hdmi audio due to a probe conflict. Let me know if this is working for you.

Hello @OliverB ,

Firstly, thanks for your quick reply, this issue is so urgent and important to me.

I have applied your patch and 1 HDMI and 2 LVDS work now. However still I have a problem. Now just I can get 1920x1080 resolution from HDMI; but I need 2400x900 like FHD+. Without your patch if I use imx8qm-mek-hdmi.dtb, HDMI (2400x900) works; but not any LVDS. If I use imx8qm-mek-jdi-wuxga-lvds1-panel.dtb, just 2 LVDS work, no HDMI. When I apply your patch 2 LVDS OK; just HDMI (1920x1080) OK, not 2400x900. What is the reason of not working 2400x900 with LVDSs and how can I solve this problem? Or is this case possible?

Best regards.

Hi Nevozade,

I'm not sure why it is not working for your resolution. Can you you provide the EDID from you 2400x900 monitor? You can just provide the output of "modtest" from when your monitor is working in HDMI mode. I'll have to set this mode on my analyzer and see what is causing the problem. Both the display controller driver and HDMI Driver should allow this mode in a single display pipe. It's possible "1920"  is hardcoded somewhere in the drivers.

Regards,

 

Oliver
