This affects me too.
I'm looking for what some other users refer to as "Alexander's patch" but I
can't find it.
Additionally, I see the post numbers jump fro #2 to #41... How can I see the
other posts? Perhaps the patch was posted there?

Xfce resets TV mode to NULL when power cycled
Status in Mythbuntu:

I had an HTPC with Mythbuntu 12.04 installed. Upon upgrading a new
behavior that if the TV is power cycled it no longer detects a link
with the HTPC.
When this happens I can find in the xorg log that there is an
accompanying log item:
[ 39829.509] (II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "NULL"
After debugging with NVIDIA at
detected/ we've deteremined it's a X client that reacts to the RANDR
events causing the mode to be set to NULL.
Working through the list in an Xfce environment, the culprit is
xfsettingsd. If xfsettingsd is running, it causes the TV to come up
in a NULL mode. If it's killed, it remains in the mode it was
previously running in.
Until this is fixed, this behavior can be worked around with a simple shell
#Fix TV state when HDMI link is lost.

for MODE in $BAD_MODE $GOOD_MODE; do
DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output $OUTPUT --mode $MODE
