I am using a Radeon 8500 with CAT 3.2 drivers, WIN 2000 hooked up to a HS10 via DVI.


I have followed the instructions on two different sites and I am still having problems moving the combination to 1366 x 768 resolution...


I input all the information to the add resolution screen and when I press the add resolution it reboots the computer. Nothing is saved and the computer reboots on its own.



Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?


Thanks

Steve

The resolution will not appear on the user installed list

after you hit add resolution until it re-boots. Is it on the list after re-booting?

Freak!

Swatkins,


I was having a problem along those same lines with my 9000 Pro and CAT 3.2. What I noticed is that just before the reboot I'd have a BSOD that would show up on my TV but not my monitor. I ended up reloading the drivers and the ATI control panel (I think that's what it's called) from the CD and it works fine now. I haven't done any serious testing to see what my problem was, but I think it may have been because I loaded the CAT 3.2 on a fresh Win2k install and didn't have the control panel installed.


Did you install the drivers/control panel off your CD then upgrdade to 3.2 or did you install 3.2 from scratch?

No its not on the list,,,, I don't think it is saving anything because when it restarts windows I am always asked to restore my active desktop, and that indicates a unexpected shutdown....



Micah


I have reinstalled all the drivers and control panel after I installed windows and I have reinstalled them twice.....




Thanks

Here are the settings that have been found to work with the HS10.



Here are the details for Powerstrip settings for your HTPC to work with the HS10.


• Timing parameters: 1366x768=1366,65,142,207,768,1,3,21,79046,39

• Horiz res: 1366

• Vert res: 768

• Horiz refresh: 45 Khz

• Vert refresh: 56 Hz (most important value to obtain WXGA, needs to be somewhere between 55.9 and 56.9 Hz)

• H-sync: negative

• V-sync: negative




When I look at the Custom Resolution screen in powerstrip I see these fields.


New Resolution


****** Active Pixels *********


Horizontal Vertical




***** Refresh Rate ******

***** Front Porch ******

***** Sync Width ******

***** Back Porch ******



* Positive Polarity * Positive



* Composite sync


Pixel Clock

*******


Aspect Ratio


* ANY * 4:3 * 5:4 * 16:9 *16:10




* Lock Total Geomerty



ADD NEW RESOLUTION






Could anyone help me with the values to add in the * spaces? What I have added looks like this.


New Resolution


1366 Active Pixels 768


Horizontal Vertical




45 Refresh Rate 56

65 Front Porch 1

142 Sync Width 3

207 Back Porch 21


(Unchecked)Positive Polarity (Unchecked) Positive



* Composite sync


Pixel Clock

79.002


Aspect Ratio


* ANY * 4:3 * 5:4 (Checked) 16:9 *16:10




* Lock Total Geometry



ADD NEW RESOLUTION



When I hit the ADD NEW RESOLUTION button the computer immediately reboots, and nothing is saved..


Any Ideas?

If the resolution doesn't appear on the list after reboot - it usually means the your video drivers have not accepted

the new resolution.


Are you sure your card and drivers can handle the resolution that you are asking?

I assume it can, I am 99% sure others have made it work.... Radeon 8500 with cat 3.2 drivers.....



What I think is happening is that nothing is being saved to the list because the program is rebooting the computer, not after it is saved and I am asked to reboot but something is killing the computer when I press the add new resolution button. What that could be, I have no idea :(

And the problem was.....


Heck if I know :)


I found that Powerstrip has a board and I asked for help there. It was very responsive help and very fast. They suggested different settings and when they did not work they suggested that I download the "very latest" program which worked like a charm!


Keep in mind that I had just downloaded the program two days before :) So I suspect they tried out my problem and released a version to take care of the bug that was making me pull my hair out :)


Whatever they did it works now and I will soon send them a check!


Thanks guys for all the help
