I am using, as software developer, a DH61AG motherboard to setup a linux based HTPC.
I arranged my Gentoo Linux based environment on top of this board. Main use of the system is video playback via hardware accelerations.
Everything looks to work pretty well, except some glitches related to video output ports.
The main issue I face is an hard lock up of the whole board (it looks so, I'm still investigationg on that on software side).
Here the use case.
If I try do connect and disconnect back and forth video outputs on HDMI or DVI connectors, sometimes MB completely freezes. No display output at all, ethernet network stops working and anything else looks freezed.
The main strange thing I see is that after a while (~1-2mins) the ethernet switch the MB is attached to stops working as well (other devices attached to such switch loose ethernet connection). As soon as I disconnect the network cable from DH61AG eth port, the ethernet switch promptly begins to work correctly again.
The only solution to such lock up situation is a power cycle or hard reset of the MB.
Is there anybody experienced similar problems (even with windows)?
