Do you have logs for the failure with the single link hdmi cable and the 
register dump which you have given for the working case?
If not, can you please capture the logs and register dump.
Also which platform is this?
If it is live status related issue, we need to see how long it is taking 
to set the live status, or is it not setting it at all with the 
single-link cable?
