This program lets you create a EDID-file. The NVIDIA-drive is actually able to read that correctly!

1. Open the program with wine or in windows
2. Import/ read your EDID file
3. Export it to raw-format, which will create a 128k file
4. add these lines in your xorg.conf:

Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP-0"
Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/path/to/your/custom/edid-file/nameofedidfile.raw"

5. Remove all the crap you probably already have added in your xorg.conf (with all respect to all the helpfull people)
6. logout, kill X, startx
7. change resolution tot the correct size
8. Request NVIDIA to fix their driver :P
Hi dusdus,

i'm also having the problem that the driver seems to read my EDID incorrectly. I downloaded the PhoenixEDID Designer, and launched it with Wine, but i have no idea what to put into all those fields... might you give me some information for this? (I want to drive my CRT with 1024x768@100Hz, but the "nvidia"-driver reports my modeline as "invalid")
