Same effect on a Xiaomi monitor (user manual just telling HDMI1,4 compatible), an
older Acer video projector and a Sharp TV set.

The Xiaomi monitor does not say "No signal" but shows a black screen. The others
do not even report any HDMI signals. All work well with MEDIA_BUS_FMT_RGB888_1X24.

This means the transcoding to YUV does not work properly on the jz4780 SoC setup.

So it looks as if we have to disable it (at least unless someone finds a fix).

I am not sure if the Sharp TV is fully certified but would assume...

This works!

So how can we get that merged? IMHO your proposal should be before we add ingenic-dw-hdmi.
If you have a version with proper commit message I can add it to the beginning of my
seried and include it in a v17. Or if you get yours merged to drm-misc/drm-misc-next I
can build on top.

BR and thanks,
