Console display goes blank

Hi All

 

I have added a GPU card to my UnRAID server and moved my console to the GPU card instead of the IGPU

and now the screen goes blank? - is this normal behaviour, I have not done any passthrough to any VM's (all set to VNC)

or is it the new UnRAID Nvidia plugin that takes control of the GPU during boot?

(UnRAID isn't even auto mounted so I can't believe that is the case)

 

In this video it is stated that the screen will go blank if you try to pass through a Nvidia GPU as a primary GPU?  (timecode 10:04)

if this is the case then how to I remove it?

Have you check the BIOS(s) to see if any energy saving features have been turned-on.  (You could also move the mouse or hit a keyboard key to see if that reactivates the display.)

I found that if I remove the binding for Plex IGPU HW transcoding in the go file I get my screen back?

 

#Setup drivers for hardware transcoding in Plex
#modprobe i915
#chown -R nobody:users /dev/dri
#chmod -R 777 /dev/dri

 

Only change... how can that be?

Is this by design? or a bug?
