Default Re: problem with X-4.3 + flat panels using dvi cables and nvidia graphics card

After having said all of this, I "discovered" a work-around for the problem:

Just use the analog port on the card/monitor and connecting analog cable. When you want the X-windows graphics mode, push the button on the monitor to use the dvi port. When you want the vga console mode, push the button to use the svga port.

Works fine.

However, I did not see anywhere in the docs / manuals about using both ports simultaneously on the card and the same monitor. Lot's people are using two monitors (twinview), but I have not seen this. I was concerned at first that I might somehow damage the monitor. So, I just took the chance and it works !
