Deploy monitor in Lab

Registered by Andy Doan on 2012-07-01

Snowball boards require an HDMI connection in order to get a /dev/fb device that we need for testing desktop images. In addition it would be nice to have some HDMI monitors deployed in the lab so we could start to do things like ensuring EDID probing works properly.
