    Hi, i have a Neo x8h plus that i just received (2 actually).
    i am connecting them to a display device that receives DVI. when i connect the x8h plus to hdmi monitor it works fine but when i connect to dvi converter it will not boot. this device will be left in a remote location so it needs to boot by itself in case of power failure. i have made the required jumper connection on the mother board for that and it works fine when connected to a hdmi monitor but when i connect it to the DVI monitor the power light does not come on and it simply won't boot. it will boot if i disconnect the hdmi to dvi cable until the power light comes on and then boot it. any suggestions?

    I had that with a device once, except it never displayed on hdmi again.
