If it helps, I did this with the XVR-600 in my Ultra 60, but the
output stops with:

[    0.000000] OF stdout device is: /pci@1f,2000/SUNW,XVR-600@1
[    0.000000] Console: colour dummy device 80x25
[    0.000000] console [tty0] enabled, bootconsole disabled

I am able to ssh into the machine.

few years ago and have been using it with a Sun monitor.)
