1.5. Monitor compatibility

There are hardware limitations affecting HDMI support and issues might be encountered when using the V2M-Juno motherboard with certain monitors.

  • On some monitors, the native resolution is not always achieved, and the V2M-Juno motherboard output degrades to 1024×768. On the next reboot, there is a chance that the native resolution might be selected.

  • For some display modes on some monitors, the display can periodically lose synchronization, causing a brief picture loss each time this occurs. The ratio of display time to blanking time varies significantly across monitors and modes.

  • On some monitors, the V2M-Juno motherboard is unable to establish a working display mode.

The following table summarizes the results for monitors that ARM has tested.

[a] Requires the kernel command-line option: video=DVI-D-1:1920×1080R@60

[b] No blanking occurs when invoking the kernel with a video command-line option that includes an R flag. For example, video=DVI-D-1:1920×1080R@60

[c] The Samsung SyncMaster SA850 is available for purchase at the time of writing and works well when using 1024×768 or half of the native resolution, but only if the following kernel command-line option is provided to force the resolution. ARM recommends adding this option to get the monitor to work:
