Welcome, CoFi. :)

In case you wish to read and write German then you will have to post in the German language sub-forum. The main forum is English only, because we do not necessarily share the same native languages here. English is our lingua franca, unless it is the native language of course. :wink:

A wild guess (since you haven't posted system specs via inxi -Fxz) is that like my Dell latitude, HDMI only works through the nvidia graphics chip. When operating with the intel graphics you have no HDMI available.
