Default HDMI = black virtual console (VGA = OK)

Hi guys,

I'm using my Ubuntu 10.4 with nVidia 9300 (256.44) for my mediacenter pc.

I used to attach it via DVI -> VGA. Everything worked fine in 1920x1080, even switching to/from virtual consoles (CTRL+ALT+F1...)

Then I moved to HDMI (to gain more flexibility with refresh rates and XBMC)
and I found I can no longer use virtual consoles.
Screen goes black, with backlight on. I can switch back to X, system dosn't freeze.

I tried advices here

with no success.

Any hint about this ?
Thanks a lot !
