Anyone experience this? I recently changed my monitor to Samsung 2K 144hz monitor and it went blank after bootup at the login screen. I need to unplug and replug my HDMI cable 2 times then it showed up.

Do you have Whatevergreen included in your kexts? If so try using the -rad24 boot arg.

Yes, I do have Whatevergreen in my Kext folder. I tried -rad24, get the same result. My old 1080p monitor doesn't have any problem at all. Only this 2K monitor I need to plug and unplug the HDMI cable a few times to make it work.
