Default Re: Color problem (NV 420 Go)

I found out the following:

In some web pages I read that many LCDs only support 6 bit color depth.

Many graphics cards or can use deithering in this case so the difference between real 24 bit and "emulated" 24 bit can not be seen by the user.

Theoretically this can be done by the software (the X server), too.

The 420 Go seems to support this feature by hardware.

My solution was simple: I took my background image (the reason why I want the 24 bit DAC) and deithered it with the algorithm described on the web pages.
