Default Re: Cannot get Resolution to Work.

tama102 --

Many, many thanks for this thread!

I started out with an ATI card in my MythTV box, and it picked up the resolution for my SP4805 with no issues at all... Very quickly, I upgraded (felt like a downgrade...) to an NVidia card so I could use XvMC... I spent about 3-4 days trying to get 848x480 working again. I got so frusterated, I took a break... it was only supposed to be for a few days, and it turned into 6 weeks because of real life issues.

Anyways, your instructions worked perfect. For the sake of completeness, here is my working monitor section:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        Option      "VendorName" "Infocus SP4805"
        Option      "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
        Option      "NoDDC" "1"
        Option      "IgnoreEDID" "true"
        Option      "UseEdidFreqs" "false"
        Option      "DPMS" "false"
        HorizSync   25 - 80.0
        VertRefresh 50.0 - 85.0
        Modeline    "848x480" 37.293 848 936 984 1104 480 508 509 563 +hsync +vsync
Thank you for your persistance!
