Is it straight hdmi or dvi to hdmi?
Not sure who you were asking.. in my case, I was using straight HDMI to my 47" LCD.
Seems like if it doesn't find the LCD info at boot time, it won't try again, and/or boot and decides there is no display (then) and can't tell (later) when the LCD is on.
Or it could be a trait of linux (Ubuntu 8.10), I don;t know. Guess I can try booting in windows and see what happens there.
