Default slimport not working

i have a samsung tv (old tv but still 720p) that if i connect the nexus 5 via slimport it works really well, but if i connect the nexus 7 .... all it shows is black picture, when there is no picture a msg appears as no signal, in this case only black is showing, donīt know what settings to change in order to work correctly

Are you using a custom ROM? May not be incorporated yet. It has always worked flawless on my ROM setup. If it's working on one and not the other, that's where I would start.

I'm using a Nexus 7/2013 with original Slimport adapter on a Panasonic TV. It's not plug-and-play most of the time.

But rebooting the tablet will make it work. Stay on the TV's HDMI input channel while the tablet is rebooting.

I think it's a problem around the handshake protocol of HDMI.
