DSDT injection is not easy for many, and GE provides somewhat of a one size fits all solution. If there was the possibility to provide an over-ride for the NVcap injected by GE for Nvidia cards it'd be useful for some who may want to use other outputs.

As an example my 560 Ti NVCAP with no HDMI working from card but DVI outputs is fine and is

04 00 00 00 00 00 03 00
00 00 00 00 00 00 00 07
00 00 00 00.

However, for someone who needs HDMI from the mini HDMI port on the card a better NVcap is:


04 00 00 00 00 00 03 00
1c 00 00 00 00 00 00 0a
00 00 00 00

This one has fully functional HDMI if you boot with it connected OR has fully functional DVI if you boot with that. However, with this string it is one, or the other.

This string works to enable the HDMI ports of many Nvidia cards (majority??). So perhaps a chimera entry for "HDMI - override" (or whatever) might be a nice option for the bootloader and not too hard to implement..
