I have a home server that is connected to my TV via HDMI. I want it to display some information that I can easily see by flipping the channel on the TV. I would like to disable the screen saver and any display-disabling functionality on the machine so that the display is always active. That way I can hit the HDMI button on my remote and see the info.
The computer already runs 24 hours a day (the TV, much less). So although it might be pushing pixels to the HDMI cable, it won't be visible unless the TV is on. Is this safe? Are there any damages to the cable, graphics card or TV that this could cause?
