I have a Myth box that I've been using through S-video to my HDTV for too long. I ordered a Audio Authority VGA->RGB converter and will attempt o hook it up via component.


Does anyone have some starting modelines that I can use? I'm not sure where to start with that. I have a widescreen Sony (16:9) HDTV.


Some pointers, suggestions, etc would help quite a bit!

Just to add some info to this thread, I found this:

http://www.sllug.org/how-to/linux-ht...iguration.html


Go down to the section "Modelines ready-to-go for native HDTV displays". I'm going to assume I can just pick one of the native DTV modes, such as this one:

ModeLine "ATSC-720-59.94p" 74.176 1280 1320 1376 1650 720 722 728 750

For a pretty standard 720p.


And then tweak with xvidtune for the particular overscan on my Sony. Does this all sound kosher? Anyone else do this?

These are the ones I came up with using powerstrip under XP, and am now using under Linux:


Modeline "848x480" 33.328 848 920 1008 1072 480 491 494 518 -hsync -vsync

Modeline "960x540" 42.187 960 1056 1104 1248 540 547 548 563 +hsync +vsync

Modeline "1920x1080" 82.500 1920 2088 2144 2440 1080 1082 1087 1125 interlace +hsync +vsync


I am using this on a GeForce 5200FX connected to a Toshiba 65HX81 via a Crecendo TC2000 transcoder. I tried XVidTune, but I had much better luck getting good images out of powerstrip. If you hit the copy to clipboard button in powerstrip it will give you a Linux modeline in the output. Good luck, the picture is so much better using the transcoder, you'll be mad you ever tried s-video.

I also got this from a user on this forum several months ago. The user was connecting to his TV via DVI from a Nvidia card. 1160x680 was the most usable resolution. I haven't tried this yet; still waiting on a case for my myth box.

Yeah, that was probably me... Connected from an Nvidia GF4 440MX to a Tosh 30HF83. Regular 1280x720 works fine over DVI too, as does 1184x666 (which I discovered has even less overscan than 1160x680). I was unable to get any of the 540p resolutions working (1920x540 or 960x540). Depending on the source material, I run at either 1920x540 or 1280x720.


1280x720 works fine for 480p and 720p video, but 1080i requires deinterlacing at that res and no matter what I do, it never looks quite right. I've tried a VGA to component adapter, and was able to get 1920x540 working with that, which the TV converted to 1920x1080i. At that res, 1080i looks great (as it is a native res).


Gordon32: Does your FX5200 actually run at 1080i? I was under the impression that nvidia cards were not able to support interlaced resolutions.


Anyway, here's my current modelines:


ModeLine "1184x666" 74.5 1184 1320 1376 1656 666 697 703 750 +hsync +vsync

ModeLine "1280x720" 74.16 1280 1352 1392 1648 720 725 730 750 -hsync -vsync

ModeLine "1920x540" 74.18 1920 1964 2012 2204 540 542 547 562 -hsync -vsync

ModeLine "1368x768" 80.29 1368 1440 1464 1768 768 769 783 804 -hsync -vsync

ModeLine "960x540" 37.29 960 976 1008 1104 540 542 548 563 +hsync +vsync


1368x768 and 960x540 are for my Sony HS10. The other resolutions are for my Toshiba.
