Option "DPI" "100 x 100"

What i want to do..

Use a CRT on dvi 1 and a 34XBR970 on dvi2..

I am using a dvi -> vga on dv1 and dvi->hdmi on dvi2..

My TV does not give the EDID correct screen size. I measured with
a tape @ 760mm x 440mm with the option
"DisplaySize 760 440" under "xorg.conf"

THe Screen is still back when i startx...

Another question..

When i am using seprate x screen view. How can i make all the displays
goto the DFP screen by default?

I am using Arch Linux .8 running ICEwm.

Re: XFX 6800 AGP GT Linux MythTV Sony TV..

after i start X..

The CRT is is fine with 1280x1024..

The TV flashes the "nvidia logo" and has a black background.

When i Move the mouse over to the right the "x" now appears on the TV..

However I cannot move any windows to the TV. it "hops" from the right side of the
CRT to the left side of the CRT and misses the TV...

Any ideas?

I got a "working" xorg.conf only if i disable the CRT monitor..

It comes up fine and I can watch TV.. however the screen is off to the right by 3"..

Does anyone know howto fix this?


Attached is my xorg.conf and Xlog for the working TV..

PROBLEM: when I launch "startx -- -verbose 6" and read the Xlog it stated "cannot validate 1080i or 720p and defaults to 640x480..

How can i disable this and let it run the modes I specify in the xorg.conf?
