Default Re: Which NVIDIA Graphics Cards can display 2048x2048 ?

Hi there,
Hi Bernhard,

I have tested the same issue (i.e. BARCO ISIS MDP-471 with nVidia GeForce 9400 DFI LANParty GF9400-T2RS) with the following configuration.

About my english... please no comment! I give my Best, thanks!
the highest ordered: give never up!

after long one try on the part of Windows (nvidia & powerstrip), I tried it again under linux.

we begins with a new installation of linux. i have try ubuntu 9.10
Install them, make a reboot update the system... but do not install the hardware nvidia drivers from ubuntu.
make a root acount with "sudo passwd root" (it's not necessary)
install with "apt-get install mc" mc (for edit your xorg.conf i like this tool!!!)
now you will download NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.42-pkg1.run or higher.
Logout your acount and change to a console ttyXY and login with root. (CTRL-ALT-F1)
shutdown the X-Server with "/etc/init.d/gdm stop"
Install the NVIDIA driver as root with "... sh ./NVIDIA-Linux..." and create a new xorg.conf file with the installer.
reboot your system, normaly the screen was change to the nativ resolution of the display.
my first monitor0 (1280x1024 17") is connected to the hdmi port with a divi-d adapter. (to startup the computer, you must deconnected the analogue port DVI-D to Analogue Adapter. after the Bios startup you can connect the BARCO 2K display). Open a console as root, and startup "nvidia-setup"...
with this tool you can activate your 2nd. analogue display. save the xorg.conf file and reboot...
edit your xorg.conf file as root (mc) with thread #9. my xorg.conf looks like that:

logout your acount... now the BARCO Display was comes up... but not 100% perfect.



the wallpapers was scaled in to the screen, so you will see the problem.
now you will see... the Modeline was not perfect. but a GOOD startup

ps: the modline from wyvern666 is the only one it will works a half... with this Modeline, my Barco will Start-Up!!! But only with this!

annyone a idea?

Hi Bernhard,

Did how do you calculate this Modline?

From the Barco Manual...

1.2.3.1 AIB (Analog Input Board)
Analog RGB/SS input on 5 BNC connectors
Make sure to use high quality cables!

1.2.3.1.1 Signal definition
One RGB non-differential input according to:
Signal: 0.7 Vpp 3 dB
Signal input impedance : 50 ohms terminated internally
Sync: 1.0 Vpp 3 dB External Separate H & V Sync
Sync input impedance : 75 ohms terminated internally
Standard input has an addressable resolution of 2048 x 2048 pixels

1.2.3.1.2 Timing specifications
Standard timings for ATC 28" CRT based 2048 by 2048 Main Display are applicable:
Horizontal Line Frequency : 126.84 kHz
Pixel clock : 357.181 MHz
Active pixels : 2048 pixels
Hor. Blanking : 768 pixels
Refresh rate : 60 Hz
Vertical active lines : 2048
Vertical blanking lines : 66 lines
Vertical sync width : minimum 3 lines
APA (Automatic Phase Adjustment, an ON/OFF switchable lock of the display panel sampling clock
to the graphics generator pixel frequency) for optimal sampling of analog signals at all times

1.2.3.1.3 Sync
The MDP 471 accepts only external sync, H & V separate (no Sync-on-green).

1.2.3.2 DIB (Digital Input Board)
DIGITAL RGB input on single DVI connector
Can be connected with e.g. a BarcoView board PVS 5611/TD.

1.2.3.2.1 Signal definition
One RGB digital input according to DVI specification (dual link)
Format: 2048 by 2048 at 60 Hz Refresh rate
DVI cable length: maximum 3 m

Hi!

Sorry for the late reply - I was on travel.

A modeline for the timing values above might look like this:

Code:
ModeLine "2048x2048" 357.18 2048 2240 2432 2816 2048 2051 2054 2114
Pixel Clock 357.18 MHz
Horizontal Active Pixels: 2048
Horizontal Sync Start: 2240
Horizontal Sync End: 2432
Horizontal Total 2816
Vertical Active Pixels: 2048
Vertical Sync Start: 2051
Vertical Sync End: 2054
Vertical Total: 2114

Remember:
Back Porch = Total - Sync End
Sync Width = Sync End - Sync Start
Front Porch = Sync Start - Active Pixels
Blanking Time = Total - Active

Again, 25% Sync Delay (= Back Porch) and 25% Sync Width of the blanking time

However, in the modeline above, the pixel clock is beyond what a
DVI output can do (330 MHz). VGA can basically do up to 400 MHz,
but I don't know if this also applies to the analog VGA signals that
come out of the DVI socket.

Instead, you may like to try the following modeline:
Code:
ModeLine "2048x2048" 328.77 2048 2176 2304 2592 2048 2051 2055 2114
BTW.: I guess you need to define some metamodes for your combination of
displays (however I'm not very familiar with metamodes). Can you please try
out with the Barco display alone? i.e. remote login from a laptop and then
starting the X-Server? It would also be very helpful if you could post an
nvidia-bug-report.log in order to check what the X-Server actually did.

best regards

Bernhard

Hi,

Just tried out the "ConnectedMonitor" option: when applying "CRT",
then the X-server tells that the pixel clock limit is 400MHz (otherwise
it says 330 MHz). My LCDs couldn't receive any signals through DVI,
but I guess that's to be expected :-)

So in your case this might help
Code:
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP,CRT"
Assuming your small display is the first device connected through DVI
and the Barco is the second device connected through VGA.

Then the modeline of posting #19 (derived from the timing information
you provided in posting #18) should also work. If not, then I guess
it is necessary to define a metamode for your display combo.

regards

Bernhard

Hi!

Thanks guys. I would have never set up a BARCO ISIS on NVidia card if I wouldn't have found this posts.

I am using Gigabyte GeForce 8500 GT graphics card. XWindows work on BARCO but I am not able to setup a second screen on analog output of the same card. I think it should be possible. there is also one funny thing. The menu on BARCO gets strangely interlaced when I am running it on NVidia. It can not be seen very well on the picture but one can get an idea.

My xorg.conf looks like this now:

My understanding is that you may need to define an appropriate
metamode specifically for the display combo. Also, since
"ExactModeTimingsDVI" has been applied, you may need to
add a modeline for the second display.

I guess the OSD doesn't like the timing value. You may try playing around with
them, i.e. increase the pixel clock or play with the horizontal sync signal.

Here's the meaning of the the first five values of the given modeline:

Pixel clock in MHz: 257.0
With this setting, the vertical refresh rate is only 257000000/2174/2080=56.8Hz.
For a 60Hz refresh rate you would need a value of 271.31.

Number of displayed pixels: 2048
You should not change this field since it perfectly fine fits
to your display.

Number of (non-displayed) pixels from the beginning of the
display area to the beginning of the sync pulse:
So the so called "back porch" is 2080-2048=32

Number of (non-displayed) pixels from the beginning of the
display area to the end of the sync pulse:
So the so called "sync width" is 2112-2080=32

Number of (non-displayed) pixels from the beginning of the
display area to the end of a horizontal line:
So the so called "front porch" is 2174-2112=64

maybe this helps

regards

Bernhard

Thanks for the information. Unfortunately I have already dismounted the setup with which I was testing. It was important for me just to see if it works. Now I know we can also buy cheap graphic cards instead of BARCO graphical boards which cost fortune compared to NVidia. And it works great.

When I will connect it again I will try other frequency settings.

Hi!
After an unsuccessful try, I have again found time and pleasure to tinker with my xorg.conf.
With other words i need help to configure my xorg.conf.
I have a Geforce 9400, the main Screen is DVI-D Display 1280x1024@60 and the 2nd. Screen CRT (Barco MDP-471). Starting Point is a new Installed Ubuntu 9.10 System with the Nvidia 195.30 BETA Driver. And now??? Whats are the correctly steps to setup my Barco Display?

Best Regards
Patrick

Hi all!
Here are the exact timing information for the MDP-471 display.

# timings for 2048x2048 at 60 hertz

res_name = 2048x2048x60;

res_desc = "2048x2048, 60 hertz";

xres = 2048;

yres = 2048;

freq = 60;

syncOnGreen = NO;

blankPedestal = NO;

pixelClock = 357000;

horTotalTime = 2816;

horAddrTime = 2048;

horBlankStart = 2048;

horBlankTime = 768;

horSyncStart = 2096;

horSyncTime = 320;

verTotalTime = 2114;

verAddrTime = 2048;

verBlankStart = 2048;

verBlankTime = 66;

verSyncStart = 2051;

verSyncTime = 3;

Hi All,

We use NVIDIA graphic cards with Barco ISIS MDP-471 (analog) and FD2k-2824 (Digital) for a couple of years now.
For the best image quality I recommend NVIDIA Quadro FX cards.

The Barco ISIS has analog BNC inputs. Although I use a good VGA to BNC cable, with black text on white you see some faint shadows to the right of each letter. We will probably upgrade them with a digital input.

The eg-electronic FD2K-2824 has two dual DVI inputs. Connected to a NVIDIA graphic card gives you a perfect picture.

My xorg.conf for a dual monitor setup of a Barco ISIS display and a 1280x1024 LCD display.
The devices usbmouse1 and usbkeyboard1 are links to the /dev/input/event.. of the input devices.
(CentOS 5.4 , kernel 2.6.18-164.10.1.el5, X.Org X Server 1.7.3 and NVIDIA driver 195.22).

Code:

Default Re: Which NVIDIA Graphics Cards can display 2048x2048 ?

Dear All,

And how to use this vga card in Windows XP ?
I use Barco ISIS 471, with NVIDIA FX380 too, but I can't find any setting in WinXP.

Rgds,

It should be possible to create a custom resolution according to the
example timings given, above, using the nvidia control panel that comes
with the driver:

"NVIDIA Control Panel" -> "Display" -> "Manage custom resolutions"
