Default Re: Monitor is not detected at all, and ConnectedMonitor / UseDisplayDevice do not he

Lonni,

my IIyama Vision Master Pro410 (A702HT, manufactured July 2000) suffers from the exact same problems. However, because in this case the raw EDID starts with 0x00, the driver didn't mistake it for an EDID version 2.0 and simply dediced to ignore the EDID (cannot read EDID for device DFP-0).

Again, when I replace the first 8 bytes, I get sane results. So, I am starting to get the feeling that the nvidia drivers could do better: apparently there are more monitors out there that don't start with 00 ff ff ff ff ff ff 00.

I've attached the raw EDID of this monitor too (it looks quite different).
