Default Re: 9629 driver and modelines

"ATSC720" is not an X server mode. Its a custom modeline which is faling validation because its likely not in the EDID for your DFP. Your workaround with the ModeValidation option is likely the only way to address this.

i need this:

Option "ModeValidation" "AllowNon60HzDFPModes, NoEdidModes, NoMaxPClkCheck, NoEdidMaxPClkCheck, NoMaxSizeCheck, NoHorizSyncCheck, NoVertRefreshCheck, NoWidthAlignmentCheck, NoDFPNativeResolution, NoVirtualSizeCheck, NoEdidModes"

to get my beamer working without powering it on and disable all edid stuff?

netllama, can you clarify what logic in mode validation has changed which is causing configurations that worked before to fail under the new drivers?

also, which specific ModeValidation option enables the workaround? are they all required?

I'm having a similar problem as the others in this thread. I just upgraded to the 9629 driver and can no longer get the max resolution I used to get. My setup is pretty simple, with two DFPs running at 1600x1200 each. But I can only get 1024x768 out of them. The log file reports that:

Mode (1600x1200) is too large for DFP.

Is this just an arbitrary limit on the size that a DFP screen can be? Why? And how do I get around it? I am using EDID and it seems to report that 1600x1200 is do-able. I tried the workaround listed in this thread, but that just killed everything, dropping it down to 640x480.

Nevermind, I found it:

Option "ModeValidation" "NoDFPNativeResolutionCheck"
