Forgot to run update-grub

I'm seeing this bug too. It seems the Radeon bug report has a good explanation of what is happening (driver is caching the EDID but never gets updated when system is using drm_kms_helper). Perhaps the Intel driver has a similar caching issue.
Kind of. It is just that the EDID is queried for audio capability during detect(), which is circumvented by drm_kms_heler.edid= What could do as a workaround is xrandr --output HDMI --off xrandr --set audio off; xrandr --output HDMI1 --preferred --set audio on;
I will try the work around... thanks!
That said, drm_kms_helper supplied EDID, in my case is on HDMI connector... audio *should* be enabled. In other words, I would expect same behavior whether (same) EDID was detected from monitor or supplied by kernel.
Am I missing something to properly force enabling my HDMI output (for video and sound) when monitor if off/disconnected during boot?
Hmm, I may be getting the effect of the overrides mixed up then. The xrandr trick may not work if it is not skipping the detect() on the HDMI port. Can you attach the edid you are using just so we can run it through a decoder to check.
The other override for *forced**detection* (my mistake above!) is video=HDMI-1-A:e

Rob, does this patch help?
Chris, does this patch make sense? ;) Should we check for connector type and only do this for HDMI/DP?

Timing out. Seems like we need something like the fix Jani mentioned, but would need someone to test it (assuming it isn't already pushed).
I can confirm that this patch works; tested with 4.0-rc5.
I have an ASUS Chromebox (Celeron 2955U) connected to an Onkyo RT-393 AVR via HDMI. It very rarely (5-10% of the time) can initiate a successful handshake to the AVR so I dumped the EDID and have been using grub to enable the output and force the EDID:
This caused video to work 100% of the time but audio to work 0% of the time; eld was always empty and the AVR was indicating no signal:
Now with this patch I rebooted and audio/video worked 3/3 times which has never happened in the ~6 weeks that I've had this hardware combo.

Jolan, thanks for picking this up and testing the patch.
To sidetrack a bit, have you reported your EDID issues? Is there a bug? If you're having issues reading EDID, you might want to give drm-intel-nightly branch of http://cgit.freedesktop.org/drm-intel a spin. There are some fixes headed for v4.1 kernel that might help. Just be sure to drop the edid_firmware part.
N.b. we'll want to fix this EDID override issue no matter what.

No, I haven't reported the EDID issues yet as I haven't yet collected enough info to make a decent bug report.
There's definitely some sort of bug. Sometimes no EDID, sometimes EDID but the connector isn't enabled. I have a Raspberry Pi 2 connected to the same hardware with the same cable and it works 100% of the time so I don't think it's the other side.
I'll give drm-intel-nightly a try and report back results.
I just booted a drm-intel-nightly kernel remotely and the EDID/ELD info is populated and connector is reporting connected. So it seems it woke the receiver out of stand by and properly initialized which is a good sign.
Will do some more tests once I'm home to verify.

nightly dmesg w/debug
Picks 720x480 instead of 1920x1080 but otherwise seems to initialize fine.
I can switch to 1920x1080 in X and audio has no problems either.

drm/edid: set ELD for firmware and debugfs override EDIDs
in Linus' tree. Thanks for the report.
