    I run my music video and Karaoke off of a secondary video card. I'm doing some testing on the HDMI output with different secondary monitors. Somebody told me that it's alright to hot swap. Is it or would you shutdown and restart when changing HDMI cable configurations?

    It "should" be fine. I always recommend shutting down first. And some hardware won't handshake / work properly if the hardware is already powered on before connecting.
