Default Re: Problems with incomplete HDTV EDID


Im afraid its not that easy, I already got those two modelines, and nvidia simply refuses to use it.

Modeline "1368x768" 85.800 1368 1400 1452 1528 768 771 781 790 +HSync -Vsync
ModeLine "1920x1080" 74.184 1920 1960 2008 2200 1080 1084 1094 1124 -Hsync -Vsync interlace

With Windows I got the 1368 line working, with Linux the driver refuses to accept the same settings. Im not completely sure if I did the "1400 1452" and the "771 781" values correct, those are not completely clear to me.

I tried a few switches with the driver, too :

# Option "ModeValidation" "NoVertRefreshCheck,NoEdidDFPMaxSizeCheck,NoEdidMa xPClkCheck,NoMaxPClkCheck"
# Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP-0"
# Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "FALSE"
# Option "UseEDIDDpi" "FALSE"
# Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"

None seems to do what I want, the modes above still get declined, what's really annoying, with Windows I had no problem to get the 1368x768 work. Im going to try your 1920 line though.

This is what the driver is doing :

(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1920x1080"; removing.
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1368x768"; removing.
