MM not starting when HDMI is connected

  • Hey,

    up to now my MagicMirror was only in test mode and accessed via browser. Now I wanted to install it with a monitor on my mirror. If the RPi is not connected to HDMI, it works great. But as soon as I connect it and reboot it does not work. I can see the bootup of the RPi and a splash screen of MagicMirror saying “booting up”, but after that only a period of time a black cross and than the desktop. I also can not connect via browser, so MM is definetly not running. I will append the ~/MagicMirror/npm-debug.log
    pm2 is listing MagicMirror as running.
    When I disconnect the HDMI and reboot it works again from my browser. Can anyone please help?
