Re: TV Display Not Detected


Uninstall your proprietary drivers and see what happens, at least
regarding the lag. I have a little experience with xrandr and dual
monitors, what does this output when your tv is plugged in?:

xrandr -q

This is a very strange case if your tv is HDMI and not working automatically.
