Well the CRT is blank in non-twinview mode, which is what you'd described, but that's not useful for me. I want the projector on LVDS and CRT on VGA for the case display -- the projector to run Myth and the case display to run whatever rinky-dink app.
Ya, used both of these:
... and in each case the logfile warned they are depreciated but accepted them.
So to sum up, in non-twinview mode yes I've finally bashed into making the projector work (which does not respond to EDID), however it can never go above 640x480. I need 1280x720, and did manual overrides for this in xorg.conf. CRT is blank, and probably working in that respect, although this is not what the docs describe and it is of no real use this way. Twinview mode does not work.
I am suspicioning the problem is driver shortcomings, so is hopeless. I can't believe no one has solved this yet, with HDMI mobos having been out for a year.
Projector is an Optoma H78DC3, and only comes up in 640x480 for DFP-0. DFP-1, DFP-2, DFP-3, DFP-4, LVDS, and TV result in no signal for the projector at all.
Myth may be an impossible hope given the above, and given that it refuses to do a channel scan. When I run mythtv-setup and set Schedules Direct, I tell it to fetch my lineups and that works fine. It gets my antenna locals and Dish Network channels. However a Channel Scan does not work, nor does getting channels from my lineups. And when I hit Next and go back to this page, my two lineups are gone and in their place is "PC98105". (my zip code) WTF?
P.S. - I've noticed you are not partisan in helping ppl. Impressive and unusual.
P.P.S - I got drunk yesterday because I know Obama will win. You may be surprised to know that I am not a supporter. No, I believe that both of the Party candidates are bought and sold, and nothing will change (for the better) no matter which of them wins. I've been working for (and donating to) Nader ever since he announced. Yeah, he has no chance, but I believe he is the right man and don't care what the pundits or majority think. Obamanites will be sorely disappointed
in about a year, if they're still paying attention.
