    Unhappy BLINKing screen with CF

    Hi!

    I try the new CF, but if i use it, my screen is blinking/flickering.
    In RR and any win APP the system works great.
    any solution?
    about 5sec good, 1/2 sec black... the VGA signal is off ! when the screen is coming back the LCD write out the active input...

    It isn't an LCD problem! If i use the CENTRAFUSE the screen is blinking. If I use anything else the LCD works great. It isn't an LCD problem, it is problem with the CF and my PC

    PC : 900MHz P3,256M (EPC)

    any idea?
    FLASH version is 8

    what can Ido? Any IDEA?

    you know best then

    maybe its a problem with how CF handles resizing, and how your lcd locks on to the vga input...

    I have the same problem, it only recently started (this week).
    I have tried several resolutions and no different, but it works fine out side of CF.
    It seems to happen more if I resume from hibernate, but happens none the less. I am using the lilliput 7" on the VIA SP-1300 with the 800x480 drivers and res.
    Any suggestions david?

    AFAIK this is NOT specific to Centrafuse... I can recreate this problem using RR and any flash based skin. And I have had this problem since RR first supported flash skins!

    But it is defo the Lilli which is causing it. Cause if I plug in a full sized monitor it doesn't do it!

    It is something to do with the way the monitor detects what resolution and refresh rate you are using.

    Mine ONLY does it when in 800x480, in 800x600 it NEVER does it

    I have posted a few times about this but until now no one else had experienced it

    i tried to switch to 800 x 600 and the same thing happened, i have not tried 840 x 480 though, but I will give it a go. Why does this only happen in centrafuse though, my desktop is 800 x 480 and no flicker.

    AFAIK something to do with the screen boundry area. Because CF is basically a full screen borderless window, the lilli sometimes finds it difficult to detect which resolution you are using and therefore syncs to the wrong settings which causes the screen to flash on and off and be shifted also.

    Running a full screen app like notepad normally stops mine flashing though, problem is you can only press the touchscreen when the screen briefly displays correctly, otherwise nothing works
