[CentOS] Twin HDMI

The resolution to the dual HDMI problem was to upgrade to CentOS 7.5.

All CentOS versions from 7.5 to 8.1 work with no problems.

Thank you for your help.

Hi John, why not try something newer than CentOS 6.8 ?
Maybe not the latest 8.1 but 7.7 is quite recent and stable.

Your (integrated) video card is :
Intel® HD Graphics 605 (NUC7PJYH)

Intel NUC7PJYH seems to be able to pilot Dual 4K display :

" ...The NUC7PJYH kit also comes with dual Ultra HD 4K display support
via two full-sized HDMI* ports, consumer infrared, and a TOSLINK audio
jack, they’ve got everything they need to stream media, play, or
finish that last-minute presentation. And with 3.2x better graphics,3
2 you can create robust entry-level digital signage at entry-level
prices for your SMB customers."

First step is to post here the output of "hwinfo --gfxcard"

Some useful info is published here (sorry not CentOS related)
