You can use a lower refresh rate, or a special option (see section L of the README) to disable the check for the maximal pixel clock. This is out-of-spec but it usually just works.

You can also use a VGA cable, this will have no problem at all to reach that resolution.

THANKS for the quick reply. yes I use the DVI... I can not find section L of the read me to figure this out. I would like to use the DVI and not analog if possible

TIA
