Getting EDID of your monitor on mainline Linux for Unsupported Resolutions or Black Screen

The EDID of your monitor can be found in the file here: /sys/devices/platform/soc/d0100000.vpu/drm/card0/card0-HDMI-A-1/edid

It is in binary format so you can't cat it to console. You can use xxd instead.

xxd /sys/devices/platform/soc/d0100000.vpu/drm/card0/card0-HDMI-A-1/edid

This is useful if you are unable to get video output on your monitor. You can decode your monitor's EDID via get-edid in the read-edid package.

sudo apt-get install -y read-edid
parse-edid < /sys/devices/platform/soc/d0100000.vpu/drm/card0/card0-HDMI-A-1/edid
