Hello everyone,

I'm in trouble again Wink My htpc is connected to a HD Fury, but on boot up, the HD Fury is not recognized as Screen so the xbmc doesn't boot up Sad Is there a way to tell xbmc, that there is allways a screen (with 1920x1080 / 50Hz) on HDMI connected, also if xbmc doesn't found one? Hope so much, you could help me.

Greetings
Limx

do you mean, the computer does not boot or xbmc does not start?
if no boot, there should be a setting in the bios "halt on errors". if you set it to "none" the PC should boot.

Hi,
seems to be the xbmc (linux), because if I boot up with a "normal" TV connected to HDMI until the bootscreen appears and then switch to HDFury (also HDMI), the xbmc also doesn't start... if I otherwise boot full with the TV connected (until the xbmc navigation appears) and switch than, there is a picture on HDfury Sad may there is something to set in xorg.conf...?
