Why can't I select my preferred refresh rate or resolution in Windows 98 or 2000?
Er, I think it should be good luck to you Kris. Aren't you the one trying to get this to work? I think others have pretty much given up on this but if you can get it to work with the Imagine drivers then please post your results here.
I think I know what part of the problem is going â€œnative rateâ€ 1360 X 768 DVI on Fujitsu PDS50x & PDS61x monitors.
I was able to go native in RGB analog mode with power strip, the plasma.inf, with an ATI 8500, but every time I tried the same settings in DVI mode it would resort to 1024 X 768 and go to pan mode. According to Fujitsu all the timings are the same between analog and DVI.
When I used power strip to read the EDID in DVI it would report back Max Resolution 1024 X 768 even with the plasma.inf from Pixel Perfect.
Today I installed a Pixel Perfect GC-K2x-64 and could not get it to go into â€œnative rateâ€ till I turned the EDID communications off, unchecked detect plug and play monitors, and had there plasma.inf monitor file installed. http://www.imaginegraphics.co.uk/drivers/drivers.htm . The key thing is the EDID communications needs to be turned off.
I wonder if there is any way to use anyoneâ€™s software to stop the video card from reading the EDID info from the plasma.
Pixel Perfect has dual outputs DVI and analog and doing an A/B comparison DVI blows it away.
I realize the Pixel Perfect is far from the best cards out there but images definitely look better in DVI native then they did on the ATI analog native.
Have you successfully configured the Radeon to work at native DVI also? Using the same .inf file, you can specify the monitor type to be Fujitsu plasma, replacing the plug-and-play type, effectively turning off the EDID. It will work.
Now that you have both the Radeon and the Pixel Perfect card, you can compare the 2 cards and use the better one.
Are you guys saying that at 1360 x 768 you are so close to the native rate of the display which is 1365(66) x 768 that the internal scaler in the display is performing a negligible amount of scaling activity or are you convinced that at 1360 x 768, the internal scaler in the display recognizes that as its native resolution and performs no scaling what-so-ever?
Makes one wonder if they could have made life easier by posting the resolution in the marketing material as 1360 x 768 instead of 1365(66) x 768.
I would guess that most external scaler or HDPC devices would have enough range in their horizontal size modes to make the stretch down to 1360 from 1365(66). Although, as has been demonstrated so far, there appears to be nothing easy in this effort to get the Fuji to sync to its native rate either over analog RGB or a digital connection.
