Default DVI DMPM support

Hello,
I can not find any mention about DVI DMPM support by NVIDIA linux drivers. Does anybody know the state of the subject?

Why would you want Linux support? As far as I know all DMPM devices will accept standard DVI (unencrypted) content (you may need a cable adaptor as the plugs have changed I think), and as Linux is not a closed platform it is unlikely there will be legal players for content that insists on being scrambled.

Uh, well. I refered to DMPM: Digital Monitor Power Management. I want to switch off my LCD from a computer. DPMS does not work on DVI output.

Sorry, all these acronyms confuse me.

It works with mine with DVI out. make sure you have
Option "dpms"
In the monitor section of your config file

My monitor only switches black, but doesnt not go to standby.

Which version of the driver do you use? I use 6629.

Me again.
Just played around a little bit:
Using drivers 7676:
All modes work: standby, suspend, off
the effect is always the same: the monitor switches off the backlight (led changes to amber)

Using drivers 6627:
Ony off works, but with the same effect as above

Important is: Option "DPMS" "true" (in the monitor section)

I'm sticking with the 6627 cause its considered stable on my platform (gentoo x86_64)
