Rockpix if goes down requires hdmi plugged in to boot

I have noticed if rockpi goes down abruptly it requres monitor plugged into hdmi.
Has anyone faced this issue ?

Are you sure? I think the RockPi X works although it does not activate the output to the monitor. At least it connects to the Internet answering the pings.

Anyway, there is a FAKE HDMI product to solve these problems although the best thing would be to “avoid” this problem directly by modifying something in the soft of this SBC, right?

I’m running one headless as a Nextcloud box. It seems to run fine.
