I am running 13.10 on my Dell Latitude E6410 as a media server with XBMC.

Every now and then when I power on the laptop it fails to display on my Sony Bravia HDTV.

I've the laptop connected to the TV via a display port to hdmi adapter.

I then restart the machine and on the second attempt the desktop displays without a problem.

Any ideas how to solve this one??
