I want to use my laptop to play music via my receiver. The receiver has an HDMI input and I am connecting it via an HDMI / DIsplayport adapter to my Lenovo T420s. Furthermore, I installed (hopefully it was successful) bumblebee. For me, it seems to be running. Here the output of ‘bumblebeed --debug’:

Normally ( at least under windows ) the receiver is detected as a normal monitor or TV because it is capable to pass through the complete video stream. Unfortunately, using opensuse its not beeing detected:
xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1600 x 900, maximum 32767 x 32767 LVDS1 connected primary 1600x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 310mm x 174mm 1600x900 60.0*+ 1024x768 60.0 800x600 60.3 56.2 640x480 59.9 VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) VIRTUAL1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
I think for the same reason, also there is no additional audio device detected.
I appreciate any help! Thanks in advance!
Here some more information regarding my system:
