Is the Xserver block or is it just that there is no picture ? ie when
you see somethings on the screen is it directly the gnome login screen
or what ever should come first ? or do you then see gnome loading ?

If it's just black and then you directly got gnome-shell it's likely
that your tv doesn't live hdmi mode change and take time before
showing the picture.
