Default 10.6.3 v 10.5.6 Viewing on TV monitor via VGA - 05-16-2010, 08:56 PM

I recently installed SL on a runcore32 for a DM9. It is to replace a 8GB SSD running 10.5.6 on the same DM9.

When I connected the 10.5.6 DM9 at startup to the Sony 45 inch monitor, the system recognized the monitor, selected it as the monitor and I am able to use it with my DM9 as the single monitor (the lap display is dark).

On my new SL SSD in the same DM9, it doesn't recognize the the monitor and I'm unable to display upon it upon startup.

I have a couple questions.

Are the differing results due to the OSX version?
Are the results due to a differing installer?

I don't know the installer method used on the 10.5.6 SSD as I purchased it installed. I used NBI 8.4 for SL.

Is there a way to have the machine display on the external monitor on boot up like the 10.5.6 SSD? thanks
