I've managed to get my monitor working happily via HDMI at this point --
using an HDMI to DVI cable, with the DVI end plugged into the monitor. I
suspect something is broken with this monitor's HDMI implementation that
makes it incompatible with the HDMI video card I have. I'm not going to
worry about it for now though.

Now to try and get TV out working from this card -- right now it thinks
it has another VGA connector. SDVO is weird.
