Purple Store. Making soup. Tidying living room. Fighting with computers.

So, in the living room, I have the giant 1080p TV, the Onkyo HT-RC560 stereo, and Algol, the brand-new Mac Mini running Mavericks.

Everything routes thru the stereo.. directv, algol, xbox, playstation, everything. TV is just a monitor.

Sometimes I turn on the stereo but not the TV to listen to Algol. Sometimes I turn on both, to watch Algol.

Depending on the state of the TV and the stereo, Algol either things there's a 1080p television connected OR ... I'm not sure which, either a 1024x1280 monitor or /nothing/, and it defaults to a 1024x1280 monitor. But the relevant point is that /almost/ consistently, when it switches from TV mode to monitor mode, it appears the graphics driver is crashing. 11/16/13 9:02:13.000 PM kernel[0]: The graphics driver has encountered internal error 0x0, 0xfffffffe. And when that happens, /everything/ crashes. Finder restarts. Terminal restarts. iTunes restarts. /everything/. And it fucks things up. the iTunes library has to be scanned to make sure it's still intact, and I just know eventually it's gonna get corrupted. Bitcasa gets angry, saying "You can't just unmount the drive like that!". It interrupts the scripts running in the terminal.. It's really pissing me off.

I've made some changes to the stereo's settings to minimize the number of such transitions, but it's still going to happen.

I've found /nothing/ directly relevant to this via Google, either. ::/
