    It is a problem I did not have in the beginning: the signal via hdmi to tv gets very unstable, then disappear completely when I use hdmi cables 5 mt long.
    No problem with a 1,5 mt cable.
    I changed several cables but it is the same: the signal has problems with longer cables. With other norebooks the cables work perfectly. It is just the ep121 that shows this issue.
    I would really to draw on ep121 and watch what I draw on tv, from a bigger distance.
    Any suggestions? Thank you very much.

    Miracast an option maybe? Use wireless instead of cable. Sounds like some kind of electromagnetic interference (EMI). Maybe a bad transformer or frayed charging cable if you are using power connection. Turn off Bluetooth or other emitting devices in vicinity. Like your cell phone possibly.
