[mythtv-users] DVI on GeForce 6200 to HDMI on Toshiba 30HF84 TV

I'm trying to connect my system using the DVI out on my MSI GeForce 6200 
video card to the HDMI input on my Toshiba 30HF84 TV using a DVI to HDMI 
cable. I never get a thing on the TV, as if there's no signal detected 
coming from the graphics card.

I want to check here that I should get BIOS messages via this 
connection, correct? Or would I only get a signal once the XWindows 
drivers have initialized? I guess I'm trying to nail down if this is a 
basic connection problem, or a problem with XWindows. Not knowing how 
it's *supposed* to work hinders ones ability to figure out what's wrong.

I do see some sort of EDID exchange taking place in the XWindows log 
(which I'm still looking in to), so I know the connection is there, but 
I'm thinking that I should be seeing *something* before XWindows starts....
