I've just tried this (the HBi1 was booted previously with the HDMI socket
disconnected).  Just now, I turned the TV on, and then connected it to
the HDMI.

The TV reported a resolution of 1024x768, and the kernel log was silent.

My guess would be that your HDMI sink is reporting slightly non-standard
1024x768 timings, which cause the IPU restrictions to be violated.  Maybe
dumping the EDID of the HDMI device would reveal this?

# edid-decode < /sys/class/drm/card0-HDMI-A-1/edid

might provide some hints?
