This isn't true with Kernel Mode Setting anymore. With KMS
you do get
enough memory reserved to handle the largest resolution your
do, regardless of what was plugged in at the time X launched.
As I mentioned, I don't think the problem is with X not having enough
memory for largest resolution, but not reading resolution information
when you hot-plug a HDMI connection (or maybe other interface types).
If I manually add the modelines using xrandr, it just works.
Yes, it could be a bad monitor. I have one monitor I use HDMI with,
however it uses a HDMI to DVI converter at the monitor side, and it's
plugged into the HDMI port on my M1330. No matter whats plugged into my
laptop at X launch time, I can plug in this monitor and successfully get
native resolution on it. I have a 26" LCD TV that I use direct HDMI
with and it too gets proper resolution when I plug it in, regardless of
when X launched. My M1330 uses the intel driver, and if yours does too,
then the likely culprit is the display.
