For the info, I've got a mini10 as well (with latest Mandriva). I've got
no problem with the psb driver and HDMI. All the screens I've tried (3
or 4) always worked. You can check the EDID reported with "xrandr
The only problems encountered is that the default maximum framebuffer
size is too small, and there are some artifacts with XV if screens are
positioned horizontally. So you either have to make sure you plug the
HDMI before starting X, or force the framebuffer size like I do in
Virtual 1920 1848
Also, the screens need to be positioned vertically if you want to use XV
(eg: watch a movie).
