Twinview on Ti4200 - TV resolution Q'n
« on: March 26, 2004, 04:03:51 AM »
I have asked this questions in so many places, it's not funny. I have failed to even get 1 response to any of them. Please help.

What I would like is to have either:
1. My TV display at 1024x768 like the card states it is capable of showing
OR
2. My TV to show what is on my desktop, but at fullscreen instead of in a 800x600 screen with a larger virtual display that you can scroll around with the mouse.

I've tried many ways to do this, but if the TV is told to display 1024x768, it just shows the default blue screen.

One other minor problem (?) was that if i have the option "ConnectedMonitor"/s in the XFREE86 file, nothing will show on the monitor. Only the TV (providing it has been told 800x600 or less).

Does anyone have any ideas?
