No Video Signal

I got my first Banana Pi today and followed the instructions to create the SD card. I did an md5sum on the .img. Everything OK.

The output on my TV is "no video signal". I installed Lubuntu on the card from my Ubuntu System.

I use:

Intenso 32GB SDHC UHS-I (Ultra High Speed) card class 10
I use Samsung Note 2 power supply 5v/2A

I tried an HDMI with ethernet and an HDMI cable without ethernet. Neither one works. No Video Signal.
Network cable connected to router and the network LEDs  on the banana are blinking.

Red LED is on and green on blinking.

Copy the Code
Already tried for nearly 3 hours without success. Any idea?

I wrote the image Lubuntu_For_BPI_V3.1 to the card. Is that correct? How do I know what version of the Banana Pi board I have? On the board it only says
CM-3 94V-0
Try another SD card, and another distro, perhaps Android.
At least to make a test and see what happens...
If you have a ttl serial cable you may also connect to debug:

I tried Fedora. Same problem.

I am trying a different SD card now. Will report any success.

Is there a list of recommended SD cards?

No success with a Hama SD card, either. Are SDHC cards allowed even?

Habe gestern weitere 6-7 Stunden mit Troubleshooting verbracht und versucht ein Videosignal zu bekommen und mit den bin2hex und hex2bin Tools die Konfig Dateien für HDMI 1080p angepasst.

Genau NULL Erfolg. Übersehe ich getwas Grundlegendes?

How is your TV connected (HDMI with/without any sort of converter/adapter?) and what is its native resolution/refresh rate?

Your problem doesn't sound like issues with SD-cards at all but more like the usual EDID probing problems (there are some resolutions available that can be 'hard wired' into UEnv.txt -- you might want to google for screen0_output_mode uenv site:forum.lemaker.org)

@actkk2000: I already tried that for a few hours, yesterday. Tried all resolution combinations.
And all without the EDID.

Does it matter if one uses an HDMI oder HDMI with ethernet cable?
I tried 3 different HDMI cables. With ethernet, without, different lengths.

Nothing. No video signal.
