Default Re: 320.17 can't detect video modes on Lenovo laptop

One more update . . . The logs appear to show the modes correctly with the "ViewPortIn" syntax -

[ 69952.467] (**) NVIDIA(0): Option "MetaModes" "1920x1080 +0+0; 1920x1080 { ViewPortIn = 1024x768 +0+0 }; 1920x1080 { ViewPortIn=1280x1024 +0+0 }; 1920x1080 { ViewPortIn=800x600 +0+0 }"
[ 69952.467] (**) NVIDIA(0): Enabling 2D acceleration

.

.
[ 69954.196] (**) NVIDIA(0): Using HorizSync/VertRefresh ranges from the EDID for display
[ 69954.196] (**) NVIDIA(0): device Lenovo Group Limited (DFP-0) (Using EDID
[ 69954.196] (**) NVIDIA(0): frequencies has been enabled on all display devices.)
[ 69954.198] (II) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes:
[ 69954.198] (II) NVIDIA(0): "1920x1080+0+0"
[ 69954.198] (II) NVIDIA(0): "1920x1080{ViewPortIn=1024x768+0+0}"
[ 69954.198] (II) NVIDIA(0): "1920x1080{ViewPortIn=1280x1024+0+0}"
[ 69954.198] (II) NVIDIA(0): "1920x1080{ViewPortIn=800x600+0+0}"
[ 69954.198] (II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1920 x 1080
[ 69955.259] (--) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (143, 144); computed from "UseEdidDpi" X config

Which indicated that what I entered was correct. nvidia-settings still shows the mangled values, and does not facilitate a change of modes.

The good news is that nvidia-settings --assign CurrentMetaMode *IS* now setting things correctly, so I have *FINALLY* gotten the 302 driver to at least admit to being able to do what I need.

The issue now is getting the toolset such that when I need to reres to match a projector to make a presentation, it isn't a 10 minute science project to get the main display down to projector resolution so that things fit, and to do it in under an hour . . . .
