Can you forward the output from /sys/class/graphics/fb0/modes and
/sys/class/graphics/fb0/mode from each of these displays?

It's possible that we're blocking some of the modes because they
don't support audio:

We added a driver parameter to the mxc_hdmi driver to force
the use of CEA modes. You can override it with this kernel
command-line parameter.

If you're running a recent U-Boot, you can also get a list
of supported modes from your monitor using these two
	U-Boot > i2c dev 1
	U-Boot > i2c edid

Please advise,
