Hi.

I have a HTPC which is connected to my TV. However X11 can recognize if this monitor is present or not - If the TV is turned OFF, X11 will not start.

Now my idea is that I write a script the will check if the TV is still present every 5 minutes or so and turn off the HTPC in order to save power

How can I reprobe for a TV which is connected without killing X and restarting it?
