Default Re: 1080i

It didn't work

Here's what I tried:

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Generic Monitor"
    HorizSync       28.0 - 64.0
    VertRefresh     43.0 - 60.0
    Option         "DPMS"
    DisplaySize    656 369
#    ModeLine       "1920x1080i" 74.25 1920 1960 2016 2200 1080 1082 1088 1125 Interlace
    ModeLine       "1080i3" 148.5 1920 2008 2052 2200 1080 1084 1094 1124 interlace +hsync +vsync

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "NVIDIA Corporation NV43 [GeForce 6600 GT]"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    Option         "RenderAccel" "True"
    Option         "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "True"
    Option         "UseEdidDpi"   "FALSE"
    Option         "DPI"   "150x150"
    Option         "ModeValidation" "AllowNon60HzDFPModes,NoVertRefreshCheck,NoEdidMaxPClkCheck,NoHorizSyncCheck"

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Default Screen"
    Device         "NVIDIA Corporation NV43 [GeForce 6600 GT]"
    Monitor        "Generic Monitor"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "TVStandard" "HD1080i"
    Option         "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"
    SubSection     "Display"
          Modes          "1080i3"
I had to add NoEdidMaxPClkCheck and NoHorizSyncCheck to ModeValidation to get the modeline to validate, but the tv didn't like it at all. It went into 'no signal' mode.

I don't understand this problem at all. It HAS to be a bug. 8774 worked perfectly for desktop and general display, but would crash when playing video with xv. Now I understand the xv problem has been fixed but I can't get a picture! This is VERY frustrating
