Default 8756 Works on Toshiba laptops!

Using my standard Nvidia xorg.conf, I only added the following new option in the "Screen" section, because the pixel clock was still not being determined correctly:

Option "ModeValidation" "NoMaxPClkCheck;NoEdidMaxPClkCheck"

In /etc/modprobe.conf, since I have a Toshiba:

options nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 NVreg_Mobile=4

And it works! Thanks Nvidia!

I'll try it in a minute and see if it works for me.

(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1600x1200"; removing.
(WW) NVIDIA(0):
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to validate any modes; falling back to the default mode
(WW) NVIDIA(0): "nvidia-auto-select".

It seems to be ignoring the "ConnectedMonitor" directive in NVIDIA(1)...

That was the message I got before I added the "ModeValidation" option. Disabling the checks should treat any mode as valid.

Default Re: 8756 Works on Toshiba laptops!

the auto detection seems to be giving me 1588x1200 again.

I can't seem to get my 1600x1200 modeline to work, anywhere, no matter what I'm putting in my ModeValidation.

And the TV out hasn't worked yet, it seems to be completely ignoring my "ConnectedDevices" string

I get this:

(WW) NVIDIA(0): Mode is rejected: Mode (1600 x 1200) is too large for DFP
(WW) NVIDIA(0): EDID (Max: 1588 x 1200).

I use this:

Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidDFPMaxSizeCheck"

I get this:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Mode is valid.
(II) NVIDIA(0):
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Mode "1600x1200" is too large for NVIDIA Default Flat Panel
(WW) NVIDIA(0): (DFP-0); discarding.

I can't seem to win against this mode validator.

And the TV out still nothing, NVIDIA(1) says this:

(--) NVIDIA(1): Connected display device(s) on GeForce4 420 Go at PCI:1:0:0:
(--) NVIDIA(1): NVIDIA Default Flat Panel (DFP-0)


Even though the device section for it says this:

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "TV"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP"

Yes, TV-out seems broken. I setup a TV only configuration, and I get the attached log, indicating

(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "640x480"
(EE) NVIDIA(0): The requested configuration of display devices is not
(EE) NVIDIA(0): supported in the hardware.

At least the DFP is usable now. I'll also attach my working 1600x1200 config.

manublade,
I have a few questions:
0) Can you elaborate on what exactly isn't working?
1) Why are you using the ConnectedMonitor option? I'd suggest removing the ConnectedMonitor option from your X configuration unless you have a good reason for using it (such as a KVM).
2) Is your TV connected directly to the videocard with the SVIDEO cable, or is there some other cable or intermediary device in use?
3) I'd suggest commenting out the 1280x800 modeline in your X configuration, or at the least, giving it a unique name.

Thanks,
Lonni
