SUMMARY: Sun Fire V210 no longer displaying on XVR-100

Dear all,

First off can I thank everyone that responded, more specifically Iain and

My issue was resolved by running the command 'eeprom
output-device=screen:r1024x768x75' as root

I ran the command from user land and waited for the nightly reboot,
hey presto all works fine the next morning.

Before my output-device was only set to 'screen'.

Thank you again.
