Just brought hs20 from local fry's for two-week trial.

I have Radeon 9600SE card, the latest driver, and Powerstrip installed on win2000.

Now, after 3 hours of trying I still cannot set resolution more than 1024x768

1. For DVI / Video GBR mode (hs20) I get 800x600 maximum in the standard display dialog (settings tab)

2. For DVI / computer mode I can set up to 1024x768, but the picture seems to be washed out in this mode, so I am using 800x600 so far :(((

3. In powerstrip I am not able to adjust H and V geometry fields they seem to be stuck in the current resolution 800 and 600. I can change other fields though ???

4. I was also trying to add new custom resolution, on that page I could change resolution values but when I completed setup, powerstrip asks to reboot after which the resolution does not change.


Any help is appreciated:

-What dvi mode should I use in hs20 (computer or video)?

-How to unlock resolution fields in powerstrip?

-How to enable more than 1024x768 (800x640 for video mode) in the standard display settings?

Computer mode if you want 1:1 pixel mapping.

Here are the Powerstrip timings you should use:


1366x768=1366,65,142,207,768,1,3,21,79046,39


When you are in the advanced timings section/add new resolution, there is an icon in the lower right that will allow you to paste the above line into the timings settings.


Powerstrip will want to reboot your PC, and it will come back up in 1024x768 mode. You then will be able to go into the display settings and select the 1366x768 res. If it is not available, then you probably need to delete the plug-and-play monitor in device manager before applying the Powerstrip timings.

JDLIVE, thank to your help I was able to figure out that the problem was in the "Hide modes not supported by monitor". Once I unchecked it, all my custom configurations appeared and got available.


So, I changed parameters to:


1376x774=1376,72,144,216,774,1,3,23,82451,1

HFP=72 HSW=144 HBP=216 kHz=46 VFP=1 VSW=3 VBP=23 Hz=57


However, I immediately noticed some problems with the picture. I am going to make a separate post trying to describe what I see.
