Can you confirm answers to the other questions before we go any further?

Also, try HDMI2 (if you haven't already). Apparently this port can act as a DVI port whereas HDMI1 can't (you can ignore the comment about not supporting a PC sonnection).

Check out http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/co...0/EN/3_sub.htm

You may also have better luck using VGA. While the image may not be as "sharp", there seems to be a lot of fine tuning that can be done using this connection which isn't available via the HDMI inputs.

My guess is that the "resolution-within-resolution" capabilities of ATI cards would be able to overcome this. If not, adding Powerstrip into the mix definately would. Not sure what else we can do with the Intel IGP

One other thought (and this is straying away from the subject of this thread now), your TV should have a service menu. To access it, make sure your TV is turned off then enter the following sequence on your remote:

Mute --> 1 --> 8 --> 2 --> Power

In here ther may be an option to turn off overscan.

I believe it's possible on some HLS models. Check out http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post8345218.

MESS WITH THESE SETTINGS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Sorry I can't be of any further help.

Fantastic mate!!!

Would you mind confirming whether you can now use standard 720p or whether a custom resolution DTD was still required?

Cheers,

Where can I apply the custom resolution after I saved to registry? I don't see it listed anywhere. Sorry if the answer is posted earlier, this thread is very long.

You apply the custom timing through the normal Intel Graphics Tray. If the new timing isn't listed there it could be because of a clash with an existing resolution or because the "Reg Hack" tool isn't working on your system. Does it show the new timing correctly under the "Registry Hack" tab after you've added it? What DTD are you adding?

Cheers,

I checked, the path /002 has all 5 mode that I selected, but with extra "37 01" appended at the end.

The resolutions for the primary display are not changed, but the resolutions for the secondary display does not have all the DTD I specified in the registry...


Btw, which driver is best? I installed the latest one but it doesn't show anything when playing FLV (i.e. Youtube) full screen. It will only show black blank screen when played in full screen mode.

I'm sorry but I don't really follow you. DTD's are display independant (that's the point). Could you try explaining the problem to me again and maybe include the DTD's (it's odd but seeing the numbers usually helps me ). Sorry if I'm being a bit thick tonight .

As for drivers, I'd stick with 15.6.1 for the least problems or go for 15.7.3 with the "Persistence=C:\\Windows\\system32\\igfxpers.exe" removed from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVer sion \\Run registry key. This great find by DPlettner stops the resolution reset problem from happening (if you have this problem in the first place). 15.8 is widely accepted as a bit of a dog (maybe unfair but....). All drivers suffer from the HDCP repeater bug. Fingers crossed for 15.8.1 or 15.9

The choice is yours

Oh, does DTD Calculatorpo support Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family? I'm using Driver Version: 7.14.10.1318 right now.

'cause if you say the DTDs are display independent, then I'm not getting any custom DTD for in the "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for mobile" even though the registry is set.

It should work for mobile chipsets although you may also have to contend with video BIOS restrictions. If that's the case try changing one of the DTDs to 1918x1080 instead of 1920x1080 and see if that shows up.

Did you get the DTD's from your displays EDID?

how to "contend with video bios"?

Those DTDs are from the templated ones provided in the drop down list.

None of them showed up in the menu... the DTD's i set in registry are all PAL tv resolution/refresh rate...

Firstly, download and install the latest DTDCalc from http://www.clevertec.co.uk/productsfree.htm.

The 1080i50 DTD in the latest release is
01 1D 80 D0 72 1C 16 20 10 2C 25 80 00 00 00 00 00 9E which isn't in your registry.

Secondly, generate an Intel diagnostic report and save to a .txt file. Make sure you're in single display mode and that your TV is the working primary display. The .txt should include the EDID for the TV. Post the .txt when you've done it.

There are only two ways to overcome the video BIOS issue.

1. Ask your laptop vendor for an updated one (you could be in for a long wait with that one )
2. Change to a "non-standard" resolution such as 1918x1080 as I suggested in the previous post. This is unlikely to be blocked in the video BIOS.

Hi there,
i´m getting nearly insane with my Toshiba 32C3000P LCD TV and a Shuttle SG33G5M that provides the Intel GMA 3100 Chipset. I want to use a Resolution of 1360 x 768 or 1366 x 768 but the Chipset does not allow this. I´ve already tried to get the EDID Data but the Toshiba Panels don´t send this Informations. I'm not really well versed in this case, so I wanted to ask if somebody be able and willing to help me. The PC ist connected by VGA Cable to the LCD Panel.


PS.: Please excuse my horrible English

Hi Dr. Phunk,

If you'd said that you were connecting via HDMI I'd have not been very hopeful. The fact you're connecting via VGA means there's a better chance of success.

It seems very odd that you can't get any EDID information for your TV. Is the information missing from the Intel Diagnostic report even after saving it to a text file?

Anyway, I'm not familiar with your model of TV but doing a quick search I found http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Toshiba_32C3000P

You'll notice that the page includes a modeline for 1360x768. These values equate to a DTD of

18 21 50 A0 51 00 1B 30 40 90 13 00 00 00 00 00 00 1C

Might be worth giving this a try. If it doesn't work then we can always do a more detailed search.

Your English is very good by the way

Hey guys,

I have a panasonic 50" (600u series), and am running vista home ultimate. Neither the Intel utility nor Moninfo report the EDID data. My display is being identified as a generic non-pnp monitor, and i'm connected via VGA.

Does anyone know what could be wrong? I think the first step is getting the computer to recognize it as a pnp monitor, but I could be wrong...

thanks in advance!

Have you tried the drivers at

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-028366.htm

first? Supposedly these make the EDID more likely readable than usual.

I do not speak officially in any sense for
Intel Corp., Technology Manufacturing Group
but I do work there.

i installed the drivers but they didn't seem to help at all. Any other ideas? i have no clue why it says "generic non-pnp monitor". everyone else seems to be getting some kind of pnp monitor.

Don't know. Some TVs don't seem to want to give up the EDID. Also, there have been some cases where the VGA cable was problematic and didn't pass the EDID back.

You might want to try the DTDCalc tool with something like

Modeline "1360x768" 85.500 1360 1424 1536 1792 768 771 777 795 +Hsync +Vsync

i must be doing something wrong. i enter the values, hit 'write to registry', it asks me to reboot (which i do), but i don't see the new resolutions offered in either the Intel driver or the window regular display settings tab.

i've tried both your suggested settings, and the ones below which were offered by Oscar (aka SpiffBB) earlier in the thread:

85,5 1366 1494 1624 1798 768 770 776 795 +hsync -vsync

Try 15.7.x or 15.6.x. I do not recommend 15.8.

I've got pretty much the same problem.

I´m trying to get a 852x480 (EDTV?) resolution on a LG Plasma to match the hardware resolution on that TV.

I´ve got the DTD calc, i can write and read from the registry but i don't get the new resolution on either intel app or vista settings.
I´ve created 2 modelines in DTD:
ModeLine "852x480 at 75" 41.2 852 880 1032 1048 480 488 494 525
DTD 1 - 18 10 54 C4 30 E0 2D 10 1C 98 86 00 00 00 00 00 00 1E

Modeline "856x481 at 85" 46.8 856 880 1032 1048 481 488 494 525
DTD 2 - 48 12 58 C0 30 E1 2C 10 18 98 76 00 00 00 00 00 00 1E
(wich is the above modified)

I have tryed the 158 157 and 158 modded by intel.

Note that the 856x481 is indicated as supported on the Plasma modes connected via VGA cable.

There could be an issue with DTDCalc writing to the wrong place in the registry. The trouble is we can't duplicate the problem on any of our test systems using any of the recent drivers (15.6.1, 15.7.1, 15.7.3 or 15.8)

If anyone with the rpoblem could do the following it would help us to eliminate some of the possibilities.

1. Remove the Intel Graphics Drivers

2. Edit the igdlh.inf file to include the required DTD's then install the drivers.

By default, the section of the .inf to edit reads

[NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings]
HKR,, TotalDTDCount, %REG_DWORD%, 0 ; This shows number of DTDs to be used. ; 0-->Disable the feature.
;Following keys have 20 bytes (18 byte DTD + 2 Byte flags).
HKR,, DTD_1,%REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,80,18,71,1C,16,20,58,2C,1A,00,00,00,00,00,00,86,37,01\ t ;1920x1080@60...Interlaced
HKR,, DTD_2, %REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,80,D0,72,1C,16,20,10,2C,1A,80,00,00,00,00,00,86,37, 01 ;1920x1080@50...Interlaced
HKR,, DTD_3,%REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,00,BC,52,D0,1E,20,B8,28,25,40,00,00,00,00,00,04,37, 01 ;1280x720@50....Non-interlaced
HKR,, DTD_4, %REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,00,72,51,D0,1E,20,6E,28,25,00,00,00,00,00,00,06,37,01\ t ;1280x720@60....Non-interlaced
HKR,, DTD_5,%REG_BINARY%, 00, 00, 00 ,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00 ;Fifth DTD

3. Replace the values for one (or more) of the DTD's with the required DTD values and change the TotalDTDCount value to match (if you're adding 1 DTD change to 1, etc).

In oteacher's scenario, the DTD section in the new inf should look like this

[NonEDIDMode_AddSwSettings]
HKR,, TotalDTDCount, %REG_DWORD%, 2 ; This shows number of DTDs to be used. ; 0-->Disable the feature.
;Following keys have 20 bytes (18 byte DTD + 2 Byte flags).
HKR,, DTD_1,%REG_BINARY%, 18 10 54 C4 30 E0 2D 10 1C 98 86 00 00 00 00 00 00 1E,37,01 ;852x480
HKR,, DTD_2, %REG_BINARY%, 48 12 58 C0 30 E1 2C 10 18 98 76 00 00 00 00 00 00 1E,37, 01 ;856x481
HKR,, DTD_3,%REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,00,BC,52,D0,1E,20,B8,28,25,40,00,00,00,00,00,04,37, 01 ;1280x720@50....Non-interlaced
HKR,, DTD_4, %REG_BINARY%, 01,1D,00,72,51,D0,1E,20,6E,28,25,00,00,00,00,00,00,06,37,01\ t ;1280x720@60....Non-interlaced
HKR,, DTD_5,%REG_BINARY%, 00, 00, 00 ,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00, 00,00, 00 ;Fifth DTD

4. Once the drivers have been reinstalled using the new inf, check to see if the resolution(s) are now selectable.

5. If the new resolutions are available, please search the registry starting at HKLM\\System\\CurrentControlSet for "DTD_1" and post all the entries that have this key with the correct DTD values (as specified in the inf).

Once this is done, we can cross reference the results with the logic DTDCalc uses to decide which registry keys to change and see if there are any discrepancies.

Of course, if the new resolutions don't show up after installing the drivers using the edited inf, then there's something else going on that will need investigation.

Thanks,

Wo0zy

Ok, before i try that, let's see whats in the registry...

I´ve searched for all occurrences of DTD_1 in the registry and they seem all the ones i put.

Here's the result:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\Clas s\\{4D36E968-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\\0000]

So the registry information SEEMS Ok... I've attached the complete registry information on those keys here for reference.

It looks like the driver isn't looking for that info though.

Hi Alexandre,

Have you tried disabling the built-in display so that the system is running with the TV as the primary and only display?

Also, check to make sure that "Hide Modes that this monitor cannot display" is NOT ticked.

Thank you for the other information. Very helpful.

Cheers,

Wo0zy

hummm let's see, the hide modes is not checked, in fact it it grayed out.
Let's try the TV Only.
same results, the available modes are:
800x600, 1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x960, 1280x1024
None has the same aspect as the TV so i allways get overscan. 1280x960 is the better but i get top and bottom black strips.

Well, sorry to say I'm out of ideas other than to suggest editing the inf, then uninstalling and re-installing the drivers .

Perhaps Archibael can suggest something else when he gets online a little later.

Just out of curiosity what language is your Windows Installation?

There was a guy from Portugal who posted a similar experience (several pages back now). Just for fun he re-installed the OS as English (UK) and it solved his problem. Probably not an option for you but it would be interesting to know if language has something to do with the problem.

Cheers,

Wo0zy

I've thought on that being the problem, and it may be! OS is Brazilian Portuguese, and Intel recognizes that and install in that language also (see screen capture).
Well if that's the case i rather wait for another version of the intel drivers.... than reinstall Vista (PIA). Or maybe there is some command-line options that changes the setup language?

Thanks

Aha

If that is the problem then directly editing the inf may well work. Got to be worth a try.
