Default Re: Is there a way to disable void HDMI audio from DVI output of 8400GS?

Disabling EDID from xorg.conf helped and I'm able to use the latest drivers! Here's my configuration. I think now I'll be able to start X without taking care that the TV is on.

# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg

# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated

#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
