Default Re: plans for 3D vision under linux ???

I have an OpenGL program working with the 3D Vision setup on my Samsung 2233RZ monitor under Linux and the 256.44 drivers. I now have a Viewsonic PJD6531w projector that I am trying to get to work. I can get the stereo to work in Windows 7 x64, but there are problems under Linux.

If I use a DVI to HDMI cable, I cannot get the projector to get a lower resolution than 1280x800. The Linux driver says it is setting 1024x768 (or 1280x720 or 1280x768), but the projector always reports 1280x800. It is always going into "optimum resolution" for the projector regardless of what the Linux driver says in Xorg.0.log. I can set higher resolutions, and the projector will accept them, but nothing lower than 1280x800.

If I use a VGA cable, I can set the projector at 1024x768@120 or 1280x720@120, and the projector changes colors and goes darker like it does when it goes into stereo mode, and the emitter goes bright green when I put my application into stereo mode, but the actual picture does not converge with the glasses - like something somewhere along the line is not actually in stereo mode. Will there be further updates for this projector under Linux ?
