Default More jaggies...

Well, it now seems that many folks are having this jaggie problem when using a dvi input.

I am a bit frustrated that the nvidia folks have yet to respond.
Would any of you brave souls mind adding your voices to send bug reports to the nvidia linux people so that maybe we can get some more of their attention!

Default dvi lcd connection causes full-screen problems

Hi all- I would just like to report that I have also experienced the "jaggies" problem when using DVI with a Hitachi LCD display in full screen mode while at the 1280x1024 resolution at 75Hz.

I recently built two identical computers, and both experienced this problem. Interestingly, I have also noticed the problem using XFree86's nv driver (this was before installing Nvidia's drivers).

So, here are the details of my system:

ECS L7S7A2 main board, Kingston HyperX 2700 DDR ram, Athlon XP 2800+ CPU

Aopen Geforce 4 440 MX 8x video card with DVI
and XFree86 4.3 nv plus 1.0-4363 nvidia drivers

Hitachi 17" 1280x1024 screen CML175B, running at 75Hz

RedHat 9.0

I don't have access to the machines at the moment to try adjusting the video fresh rate to 60Hz, but I will try that as soon as possible and post the results.

I hope this helps.

Default Same lines bug with me

Hello,

I just want to confirm that I get the same bug. Playing any video (especially DVDs) There are interleaved black lines when in fullscreen mode. It just looks blurry. Here is my setup:

XFree86 4.3.0.1
nvidia drivers 1.0.4363
linux 2.4.20
nvidia GeForce ti4600
ViewSonic VX900 LCD Monitor

snippet from XF86Config:
Section "Device"
Identifier "nVidia GeForce4 ti4600"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NvAgp" "2"
Option "NoLogo" "Yes"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
EndSection


Someone mentioned that running another movie first in fullscreen and then running the movie I want to play will work. That does seem to work around the bug. Also the bug seems to only materialize when I use the xv driver. For example, in mplayer if I use -vo sdl or -vo x11, there are no interleaved black lines in fullscreen.

However, I am using the newest nvidia drivers and the bug is still there. So hopefully nVidia can take a look and fix it.

Xine, mplayer, ogle, etc ALL have the same problem. It is an issue with the video card and X -- nothing to do with the video player.

Default Where the h*ll is nVidia????

Why hasn't nVidia responded/acknowledged this common bug???

This thread has been going on for months with multiple people reporting the same problem. I have also submitted bug reports to nVidia and mentioned it in all the new driver release threads.

In the last driver release thread, Andy mentioned that all known bugs have been fixed. Well, how about fixing this one!!! Even if you can't fix it, at least acknowledge it and tell us when/if it might be fixed.

This problem is only going to be more common as DVI becomes increasingly popular.

So wake up nVidia and respond please!!!!

Note: all you fellow sufferers could help by submitting your own bug reports, by keeping this thread alive, and by posting such questions to the new driver release threads that Andy Meecham seems to monitor.

I believe it's because od the kernel version.. i am using kernel 2.4.20 on Debian. I used to have kernel 2.4.18 and never had this problem. Is it possible that nvidia's drivers aren't fully compatible with this kernel???

The jaggies problem is kernel independent (for me at least). Had problems with both 2.4.18 and 2.4.20 -- which is to be expected since it would be hard to understand how kernel would effect something at this relatively high video level.

Perhaps you had an earlier nvidia driver. I suspect (but haven't confirmed) that the jaggies problem didn't exist with the 3123 driver.

Yes. I am dissappointed with them. I'd like to make a shameless plug at another bug that I notice that seems related to LCD displays. I staretd a thread here:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...threadid=12392

Also, In regards to this bug, it did work for me when I set my VertRefresh down to 60 Hz. At that rate, the black lines were gone. Is there anything else we can do to bring this problem to nVidia's attention?

puterguy, could you attach your whole XFree86 configuration file? I want to check something that is a very common thing to miss. I really cannot explain right now since I cannot get to a Linux machine with X11 installed at the moment. Thanks
