Thanks for that. So my problem has narrowed down a bit (it still happens
but I can fix it by changing the input colour format using the buttons on
the side of the screen). The screen switches to use YCbCr input format:
** When the computer is booted up
** When I log in using kdm
** When the screen switches off after a period of inactivity
I've used this screen for more than a year and it hasn't happened before.
Is there any reason that the driver might set the input colour format to
YCbCr, or is it possible for a Radeon card to set a hint for input colour
format that could persist across a reboot?
I'll try with the 4.1 kernel and see if anything changes.
