I got slight problem after using Coreboot succesfully for few months as my new TV seems to ignore signal from Asus Chromebox.

Device: Asus Chromebox with Celeron, newest CoreBoot (updated last night) & OpenElec as standalone installation.

Everything worked just fine with old tv & other TVs in the house, but new ProCaster tv seems to have decided that Chromebox ain't sending any signal and I'm not sure what to try anymore.

I have updated Coreboot, changed HDMI-cables, ports, tried other HDMI-devices (all worked), tried booting with HDMI unplugged, hot plugging etc. Even with DisplayPort-cable connected to my computer screen and fiddling with OpenElec screen options, still no change. Not even bios loading screen, so seems like device problem, not OpenElec problem.

I got DisplayPort -> HDMI adapter coming next week to try that out but if that doesn't help, then I'm lost at what more to try.

so to be clear, the ChromeBox still works on your old TV, just not the new one? What is the native resolution of each? How to attack this depends on whether the ChromeBox is actually outputting a signal (just one your new TV can't use) or not
