I've already had some in advance! Is it a problem? Anyway my conclusion is that X has a rather robust mode config system hand in hand with the Nvidia driver's validation. So I say ..anyone out there trying to get it work, don't give up!

I couldn't agree more, as well these threads should impose some compelling guidance for NV to keep improving the driver.

LOL, never mind, I just realized I was reading this thread backwards and responding to an older posting!

Yeah! You gotta take pictures of your display to sink that low, look what I had to do. Maybe one of these days I'll convince rush to do something dumb like give Beryl a try.

When's our fix coming out rush???

Look guys. It's MVinny himself back online. The Godfather of THE 1080i thread!
Where have you been? I was worried that you'd gone blind from the interlace flicker.

Funny you should mention beryl. I was just trying to get it going on my daughter's laptop. Won't run. Not enough video horsepower.
Converted my son's machine this weekend. He figured Linux would be either a disaster or a drag. ("Dad's just too cheap to buy Vista."... ha!.. true, but he doesn't have to know that.) Now he's running with beryl and he's waaaaay cool.

Now we're all up on 4 machines with Linux!

Yeah dad DON"T buy vista, don't do it! I don't want to see you on the Windoze forums. I see ATI is opening up the source, HMM. I've got the match, how about some fuel Rush?

Nice to hear about a household full of Linux boxes. Is your son running beryl in 1080i?

Nope. That's my system in the family room (Athlon64/7900GS with Feisty, Mint, & WinXP.) Beryl runs fine on both distros.
Son runs MInt on a PCChips mobo with an Athlon XP-M and a 7300GS V/C. (Yeah, wierd setup. Laptop CPU in a desktop mobo. AMD put it together to get rid of a bunch of XP-M chips. Cost $80 complete. Darn thing's got a lot of pop, even with only 512mb memory.)
Daughter runs Mint on her laptop. Same XP-M chip but no V/C. Thought I might be able to convince beryl to run some 2D stuff but no luck yet.

We like Mint. Nice distro. "Bianca" (distro name) is a slicked-out and dressed-up "Edgy". Works good with no surprizes. Next release to be "Cassandra" based on Feisty. Due out in a month or two.

Fourth machine is at my shop, an old HP with a P3 running Fedora 6.

Don't worry MV, there will be no Vista in this house. Next move is to try Wine with our Win games. If that works reasonably well WinXP will go away too.
Cut to "2001".... in my family room.... XP is fading away....
XP: "Rush, you really don't want to do that."
Rush: (silent)
XP: "I know I've had my problems, Rush, the service pack 2 thing and all. But we've had so much fun together. Is it about the money?"
Rush: "It's not about the money, XP. But then it IS about the money."
XP: "How about a discount, Rush? We can work something out. Free upgrade to Pro maybe?"
Rush: (silent)
XP: "My daddy will sue you Rush, and all your Linux friends."
Rush: "Bring it on."
XP: "Daisy...Daisy....give me........your........answer............do........ ........................................"

So I think I finally "fixed" my 1080i problem ! Okay, I'm too much of a spaz to actually remember to bring all my log and bug and conf files in to work on my thumb drive, but here's what I did.

I tried using the EDID-reported modes from my CRT TV (Sony 34XBR970) for 1080i. That produced a nice display of the top half of the desktop, the bottom half was invisible below the lower edge of the TV screen. I tried the "workaraounds" mentioned waay back in this thread, but only managed to produce either a) modes that my TV could not sync to - TV indicated no signal, or b) modes that my TV seemed to sync to, but showed only a blank screen. I tried quite a few of the modelines that various people posted here and in other forums. No luck.

What finally worked - and I have no idea why - was to change the "+hsync +vsync" to "-hsync -vsync", and otherwise keep all of the parameters from the EDID-reported 1080i mode. I noticed that some of the EDID-reported modes (but NOT the 1080i) had negative sync polarity, so I just figured why not try it.

This was all done minutes before rushing (re-rushing ?) out the door for work this morning, so I haven't had a chance to tweak it much. Definitely needs some adjustment to correct for overscan. And in my haste, I tested it by playing a recording of 1080i video (which I now realize was de-interlaced) so I haven't really given it the acid test - 1080i displayed at 1080i. But the video looked good.

On the downside, normal computer graphics - desktop, text, etc., don't look as nice. Lots of flicker. But I guess that's what you'd expect for an interlaced display at such a low rate (60 Hz = 30 Hz per field). If I'm just screwing around on the computer or watching progressive video sources, I guess I'll stick to 720p. But for 1080i, it feels like I'm getting close !
