> I've recently moved from nvidia to Intel graphics for my frontend. With
> nvidia, I could specify CustomEDID and ConnectedMonitor options in my
> xorg.conf so that mythfrontend would start up before the TV was turned
> on, but Intel graphics doesn't support the ConnectedMonitor option and I
> so far can't find an alternative.
> When mythfrontend starts it reports failure to find a screen and
> attempts to set a mode with 0fps, although xrandr correctly reports the
> modes specified via CustomEDID.
> I've tried various alterations to no avail.
> * Specifying custom edid and an enabled output via KMS, but that seemed
> to have no effect.
> * Setting the primary output with xrandr before starting mythfrontend
> * Specifying monitor definitions in the x config with the Ignore option
> set to True for all outputs other than HDMI1.
> Nothing has worked, although the system has fooled me into thinking it
> is working several times.
> Hope someone has some more suggestions. Here are various logs:

Looks like there a “ missing from the end of your edid line in your xorg.conf
Option "CustomEDID" "HDMI1:/etc/X11/edid.bin
Not sure if that’s the case in the actual file or not,
