Question FX3000G frame locking

I've got 4 Quadro FX3000Gs that I need to frame lock together. The PDF manual for these cards shows a control panel for setting it, and says that frame locking is supported under Linux. However, I can't find any sort of control panel, and the cards are certainly not doing it automatically.

Has anyone actually made this work? Is there software other than the driver that I'm missing? If so, where might I find it?

Yes, we are locking six 3000g cards using the 'nvidia-settings' program. However, I am not sure if it comes with the drivers or is optional.

As I wrote in another thread we have great problems when we enable HyperThreading in the CPUs, so be aware of that and please report if you manage to genlock the cards in HT mode (as Nvidia as not responded yet).

Cheers

Well, our system is running fine with the 4620 as long as HT is disabled. This driver was provided with the cards by the vendor, since they aparently have some special genlock support.

I am not the sysadm so I can not (and will not) experiment with different drivers. And since the same problem occur in Windows on the same machines I fear that is not a driver problem. Still, It would be nice with an official statement.

I got Framelock working with the 1.0-53.41 driver,
just remember typing "xhost +" on each node.
here is a screenshot

Do you have Hyper Thread CPUs and is it enabled in Bios? Like I said: Framelock is not a problem, but framelock with HT enabled is (in Linux and Windows).

You can download it from pny.com but note that the 1.0-4620 nvidia-settings app was more advanced than the one in 1.0-5341.
