I'm using a asus n56vj laptop. I have fedora 19 running on it and I'm having a bit of issues with my hdmi not being recognized. I'm running bumblebee at the moment and primus I'm using them to run a few graphics instense games in steam. Currently, when I try to use arandr or the display monitors (I'm using gnome 3 and cinnamon as well as awesome (depends on my mood andif i'm at work) no hdmi port is displayed as an option regardless of whther it's plugged in or not. I could really use some assistance as I'm finally well out of my league. here are the lspci results:

hdmi is suppposed to be hot plug http://superuser.com/questions/440959/is-hdmi-hot-pluggable, but i would boot the laptop with hdmi cable connected, as suggested here: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/question/7898/why-the-hdmi-does-not-work-on-f16/

So I actually managed to solve this on my own. Turns out that if you are using the bumblebee-nvidia package fromthe nonfree repo, it will force your video drivers to not see your hdmi port. So a quick uninstall hdmi is detected in arandr (after a reboot) but sadly no bumblebee, looks like nouveau needs to get updated for the open source drivers to work properly.
