I see that arandr has has been updated, along with a firmware fix to re-enable Composite video on RPi3.
No change in findings for pure hdmi connections, however...
Is there further information available regarding the "less capable" HDMI1 output?
I eliminated the possibility of a faulty Pi4 by trying the same setup with a different Pi4, in fact a Pi4 with 2Gb ram, with reproducable problems as per my previous post.
So, bearing in mind the "less capable" HDMI 1, I tried 2 different, but same make, Dell monitors which do not have HDMI, but its predecessor, DVI-D, & lo & behold Pi4 boots reliably, & said DVI-D extends the desktop properly.
Moving the icons around in arandr no longer crashes Pi4 using this configuration.
The reverse, with DVi-D in HDMI0, & any available HDMI only monitor in HDMI 1 socket, as reported before the boot text scrolls up the screen & then the Pi4 crashes, no SSH possible.
It would be interesting to see if anyone having dual screen monitors, but unable to boot, could see if such applies to them.
