Nah dumbest thing is HDCP 2.2 repaired hundreds of TVs by putting them on 1080p or component to avoid the digital handshake

It took more than ten years for laptop computers to properly manage "Power Management" into computer BIOS. Yes, from 1995 to 2006. In 2006, it become possible to close the lid of the computer, and - upon reopening it - everything was working as supposed to be. Now it is more than ten years that EDID is around (I began seeing it after Win 98) but the level of annoyance to customers is far from the unruly power management in laptops... Thanks for the video...

I just bought this new ASUS TUF gaming monitor, I used its included HDMI with my new RX5700XT and then I get no display, but when I plug it to my 4k TV it has output! then I use my ps4's HDMI for this pc set up with the new monitor and it worked, the HDMI that is included with the monitor I used that to my ps4 to 4tk TV and it worked. I don't know whats up with these HDMI cables they are sometimes a headache to set up.

Why do we get devices with incorrectly encoded EDID? Manufacturers like to go all "Apple" on it: "We're too good for industry standards, therefore we make up our own EDID encoding. If anyone doesn't like it, it's on you. Screw you all! ..|. Deal with it. "

HDCP is a much bigger pain in the butt. My Android TV box only works when it's plugged into my TV directly, but doesn't work through my AV receiver.

You didn't even talk about how HDMI has a ethernet standard built into it and nobody uses it. They way is should "work" is you have a "smart" TV that has 1 ethernet cable plugged into the TV and the TV acts like an ethernet hub/switch. All of you HDMI devices, game consoles, blu-ray players, cable boxes, and video streaming service sticks, would utilize the ethernet function on HDMI so you have fewer cables to connect. Why has nobody done this?

EDID can also have an issue with multiple devices connected where it will search all devices for a common supported resolution between all devices. So, if one device only accepts 1080P 60, but everything else is 4K 120 capable, it may send 1080P 60 to all devices.

I have 3 monitors and two devices, a work laptop and a PC. I have HDMI switches between the devices and the monitors so I don't have to replug stuff and can switch 1, 2 or 3 monitors over at a time depending on my needs. However every-time I did so I would have 1 minute of black screens on all 3, regardless if I swapped the one monitor as Windows was busy shuffling windows around (something I didn't want but can't configure). I ended up getting some dummy EDID passthrough devices (6 - one for each HDMI into the switches) that always sent an EDID, thus preserving the display on the device that wasn't being used. These normally sell for £20, though I managed to get some from China for £2 a pop, though had to use a m-m adapter and a f-f adapter on each one as they worked in only one direction (hint in the wrong direction for my case). What a faff for just wanting to switch the display between two devices without anything else changing!!!

Except this isn't HDMI exclusive, and it's super easy to edit when the source is a PC... so the truer title would be something like "Why having a media source that's not a PC is stupid" or "Why receivers actually ruin everything" or something else clickbaitie, but at least more accurate than this is currently.

Actually, my local Wal-Mart does self correctly. For incidentals: do whatever; For produce, _if_ weighing is necessary: prompt; For ID requirement: pause; For void: pause. There is no such thing as bagging or strict weight metrics necessary for most items. It's cheap, it's effective and it keeps people honest by not forcing the point. That, and if a customer cocks up and are caught on camera, they get in trouble, and if they're not caught, well - the Waltons have money. They can deal with it, them rotten commie business-stealing bastards. But other than that last bit, yeah, Wal-Mart's self-checkout experience is nice.

It's frustrating every time I plug a computer into an HDMI display, the computer assumes it's a "stupid" TV that does underscan, so it sends an overscanned signal (or vice versa). I shouldn't have to keep going in to reset overscan to zero, and also set the colour space to RGB instead of YCbCr just to make the text clear.

SO THIS IS WHY!! I have a 4k secondary monitor that almost always shows a black screen or flickering when I first turn on my computer. The only way to fix it is by going (Windows Key) + P to disconnect the monitor, wait a second, and then connect it again. I never understood why this had to be done every time. Now I see that it's probably just forcing EDID to run and correctly configuring the data. Thanks Techquickie!

Is EDID handshake issues/voltage variances the reason that my screen will go completely black for a second while playing a game or streaming something from a device? For example, in a videogame, I can still hear the game, and I have control over what is happening with my character, I just can't see it. It always returns 1 second later, but it is always annoying when it happens in the middle of a Halo match.

I bought a receiver to make life 'easier'. Spent the next few days trying to figure out why on earth I wouldn't get my tv to show picture. Tried every trick in the book, tried different monitors (which worked), to then come to conclusion that the hdmi cable I was using only worked when connected directly to a tv and not (for some reason) through a receiver.
