I cannot get Xorg to display to my panny L500U. The console displays (with some overscan). Xorg starts (can listen to KDE startup tune), but screen remains blue. Relevant xorg.conf settings, including various modelines I've tried, are:


Section "ServerFlags"

EndSection


Section "Monitor"

Identifier "Panasonic"

HorizSync 30-70

VertRefresh 50-87

#Modeline "[email protected]" 73.78 1280 1312 1592 1624 720 735 742 757

#Modeline "[email protected]" 74.16 1280 1320 1376 1648 720 722 728 750

#Modeline "[email protected]" 88.903 1280 1320 1376 1648 720 722 728 750

Modeline "[email protected]" 88.992 1280 1320 1376 1648 720 722 728 750

# [email protected] is optimal

EndSection


Section "Device"

Identifier "NVidia"

VendorName "NVidia"

BoardName "GeForce 6800GT"

Driver "nvidia"

EndSection


Section "Screen"

Identifier "Projector"

Device "NVidia"

Monitor "Panasonic"

DefaultDepth 24

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0"


Subsection "Display"

Depth 24

Modes "[email protected]"

ViewPort 0 0

EndSubsection

EndSection


# No ServerLayout section


I actually have another Monitor and Screen section for use with my LCD, which is the default section. However to try using the panny I use "startx -- -screen Projector"


In Xorg.0.log nvidia seems happy with the setup:


...

(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failure reading EDID parameters for display device CRT-0

(II) NVIDIA(0): Panasonic: Using hsync range of 30.00-70.00 kHz

(II) NVIDIA(0): Panasonic: Using vrefresh range of 50.00-87.00 Hz

(II) NVIDIA(0): Clock range: 12.00 to 400.00 MHz

... lots of modes that it cannot use, none of which are 1280x720

(**) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes for display device CRT-0:

(**) NVIDIA(0): Mode "[email protected]": 89.0 MHz, 54.0 kHz, 72.0 Hz

(**) NVIDIA(0): Default mode "832x624": 57.3 MHz, 49.7 kHz, 74.6 Hz

... a number of other "valid" modes but, for example, 800x600 also does not display

(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1280 x 720

(==) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (75, 75)

... rest of startup is ok


Any help? I would assume it is a modeline issue, but two of the ones I tried came from the XFree86 web page that calcs modelines, and one of them had a poster somewhere saying it worked with his AE500 (is the same model, no?)
