HDMI Output in i.MX 8QuadMax

Hello everyone,


I'm trying to get output via HDMI on a i.MX 8QuadMax but so far without any success. I've already followed the steps described here Getting an HDMI output on IMX8QMLPDDR4ARM2 for a similar problem and used two different monitors for the test: a PC monitor and a TV monitor.


The configurations I'm using are the following:


Yocto project image: fsl-image-qt5-validation-imx


Moreover, I tried already setting the bootargs in uboot as follows:

u-boot -> setenv mmcargs 'setenv bootargs console=${console} root=${mmcroot} video=HDMI-A-1:3840x2160-32@30'


Other errors that I noticed during boot which I'm not sure if they are indicators of other possible issues related to this problem:


During boot the following message shows up:

[FAILED] Failed to start Terminate Psplash Boot Screen.


and in dmesg:


[    2.429971] [drm] Cannot find any crtc or sizes
[    2.435001] [drm] Initialized imx-drm 1.0.0 20120507 for display-subsystem on minor 0


In addition, as this board has 8 LVDS outputs I'm not sure if I'm using the correct one. Should I use a specific one or can I plug the HDMI in any LVDS plug (obviously using the adapter)?


Can someone help me on this?


P.S. If needed I can provide more information (boot output,  uboot args, ...).
