While there are some issues with the 3.10.17 kernel for Wandboard with HDMI, I'm 
not aware of this one.  Then again, I don't have a Sony HDMI monitor.  I've been 
working with an Acer 22" monitor with HDMI input.  I suspect that most of the 
problems I've seen are related to the lack of working EDID on Wandboard.
