Monitor not always recognising the signal from eGPU

Hello all,


I have this rather annoying problem with my setup:

if I turn off my monitor, it does not get a signal from the eGPU when I turn it back on. The only solution is to detach the HDMI cable and put it back. However, it is not consistent at all when the signal is "recognized" by the monitor. As I hardly ever shut my computer down for the night, every morning I spend a couple of minutes fiddling with the HDMI cable at the back of my eGPU.

I have Razer Core X w/ AMD Radeon RX580, macOS 10.14.6 and a Gigabyte monitor.

Does anyone know if this is a problem with the monitor, the eGPU or software? Thank you very much in advance.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.
