Using an external Display

Hey, I want to use an external display over HDMI to see the now playing screen,
I’ve installed the touch display plugin and connected my 1080p screen over HDMI Port 0 but it’s just a black screen.

What do I have to configure to make it work?

@gvolt can you help him with this.

Some more information is required:

What is your Volumio version and are you on a fresh system?

What is the brand and model name of the screen?

I have the newest version of volumio and my screen is a LG 24BN550Y, but I plan on getting a smaller screen. This is just my second monitor for testing this

So, 3.198 I suppose.

Are you on a fresh Volumio installation?

Please connect to Volumio via SSH and post the output of

ls -al /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d
