Sony LCD TV Modelines

Sony LCD TV Modelines

Hi,

I'm really struggling to set up the modeline on my ubuntu mythtv
fronted for my Sony KDL32V2500 lcd TV. I have tried numerous setting
and have had no joy. I have feisty fawn installed on an old Toshiba A2
laptop which has an Intel 855GM integrated graphics card. I have
installed 915 resolution drivers but still no mater what I only get
1024 x 768!!

Here is my xorg.conf, as you can see tried loads of different modelines:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device"
Driver "i810"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Have you taken your question to

http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/xorg

They're mostly involved in the development of the Intel drivers for Linux, but they've helped the occasional person who had questions on how to get his resolution running.

Just from what I see of your Monitor section... shouldn't HorizSyncand Vertical Refresh be a range and not a single number? Been a while since I looked at my xorg.conf, so I could be wrong. Also, it's reporting the i810 driver... I'd jump to the new Intel drivers get started there.

Archibael,

I have tried a range of numbers and statics numbers for HorizSync and Vertical refresh ranges. With no luck!!

I've subsribed to the mailing list, we'll see what that turns up.

Thanks,

Jim
