e7470 proper better solution for HDMI output.

Installed Mojave and everything is running stable enough, except for Hdmi output. I run HDMI out to my monitor and swap and mirror back and fourth between the built display and my external monitor. 

 

Does anyone have any pointers or tips on how to go about having a more stable experience? The current workaround is by closing and opening the lid. It works (sorta) but there's got to be a better fix. 

 

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean?

You only have to do the LID close workaround once only.

After that, you could unplug / replug HDMI without any issue.

To be more clearer, you only have to do the workaround on a fresh boot.

This does not occur if system had gone through a sleep cycle.

Sorry for the delay.

Yes, that works most of the time. But it can also be inconsistent, specially if change that specific scenario that you mentioned. A few times I was forced to reboot the machine because it would be stuck on a black screen and no amount of plugging and unplugging HDMI would solve it. That's why I said there has to be a more proper fix to make it run closer to native setup

 

Is that too far from possible?

 

Im going to run a couple if different scenarios and i'll report back with findings.

 

Thanks
