EDID resolution problem
 
hi,

i have two 21" viewsonic lcd-panels both connected to an 8600gt card via dvi.
one panel can't "tell" his EDID-settings so it isn't recognized correctly by the nvidia-driver anymore.
after checking the Xorg.0.log i got these lines:
Code:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Frequency information for ViewSonic VP2130 SERIES (DFP-0):
(II) NVIDIA(0):  HorizSync  : 30.000-92.000 kHz
(II) NVIDIA(0):  VertRefresh : 50.000-75.000 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0):    (HorizSync from EDID)
(II) NVIDIA(0):    (VertRefresh from EDID)
(II) NVIDIA(0):
(II) NVIDIA(0): Native backend timings for ViewSonic VP2130 SERIES (DFP-0):
(II) NVIDIA(0):  1600 x 1200 @ 60 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0):    Pixel Clock      : 162.00 MHz
(II) NVIDIA(0):    HRes, HSyncStart : 1600, 1664
(II) NVIDIA(0):    HSyncEnd, HTotal : 1856, 2160
(II) NVIDIA(0):    VRes, VSyncStart : 1200, 1201
(II) NVIDIA(0):    VSyncEnd, VTotal : 1204, 1250
(II) NVIDIA(0):    H/V Polarity    : +/+

so the first panel is "good:
but these are the lines for the second panel:
Code:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Frequency information for DFP-1:
(II) NVIDIA(0):  HorizSync  : 30.000-92.000 kHz
(II) NVIDIA(0):  VertRefresh : 50.000-75.000 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0):    (HorizSync from SecondMonitorHorizSync X Config Option)
(II) NVIDIA(0):    (VertRefresh from SecondMonitorVertRefresh X Config
(II) NVIDIA(0):    Option)
(II) NVIDIA(0):
(II) NVIDIA(0): Native backend timings for DFP-1:
(II) NVIDIA(0):  640 x 480 @ 60 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0):    Pixel Clock      : 25.18 MHz
(II) NVIDIA(0):    HRes, HSyncStart :  640,  656
(II) NVIDIA(0):    HSyncEnd, HTotal :  752,  800
(II) NVIDIA(0):    VRes, VSyncStart :  480,  490
(II) NVIDIA(0):    VSyncEnd, VTotal :  492,  525
(II) NVIDIA(0):    H/V Polarity    : +/+

how can i tell Xorg not to set a native backend resolution to 640 x 480 and use 1600 x 1200 instead?
i tried these options, but without success:
Code:

    Option        "UseEdidFreqs" "false"
    Option        "IgnoreEDID" "true"
    Option        "ModeValidation" "DFP-1: NoEdidDFPMaxSizeCheck"

Re: EDID resolution problem
 
is there really no solution to get this display working with xorg without the "resolution-checking"?
with windows i can use both displays with native resolution via dvi although one panel isn't "edid-talking" anymore. (this display was recognized as "standard monitor")
but how want's to use windows ...???:)
