  • What video cards will do widescreen??

    Which cards have resolutions of 1024X600 or 848x480?? I've looked all over the net and can't find a darn thing.

    Thanks,
    Landon

    any radeon or geforce card will as long as you use powerstrip to make the custom resolutions

      I have read a post by ZIN (?) that has used his desktop Geforce 2 card to get the 848X480.

      Good question though. I am interested in hearing more about it as well.

        Will no card support these resolutions by default? Is there a tutorial somewhere for powerstrip?? It sounds easy but I know how those things can go sometimes. Thanks Guys, I just don't want to buy a card and then find out it won't work.

        Thanks,

          I believe Tvtool might be able to help with this.

              The radeon 7000 upwards will support these without the need for powerstrip. Its just makes it easier that's all.

              The bit about only genuine radeons working is rubbish as my 7000 sdr no-name brand worked no probs by changing the windows registry.

                  So this one will work? http://www.dvcentury.com/Merchant2/m...de=96-230-9205

                  PAL/NTSC will work for the output to the Lilliput touchscreen tv right?

                    I have nVidia GeForce2 MX200, Win2K, and driver form CD, 848x480 is an option in settings tab, my Lilliput shows great picture on this resoluton, but remember to set monitor vert. frequency to 75 Hz (on my Lily 60Hz looks crapy, 85Hz does not show anything).

                    but I need the same on M10K mobo :-((( I will brobably through it out (sell) and get some MictoATX with nVidia

                      Just use any Nvidia card. Download Latest drivers, this is a must. They include an option to have custom resolutions!!!

                      Make a resolution at 856 * 480 I think it was. You will then have to adjust screen position from within the same Nvidia software, and in the monitor too. I think my refresh rate was 70.

                      Then look in monitor information in lilliput menu it will show 848 * 480.

                      And the bonus media car widescreen skin covers the whole screen no black bars.


                      The trick is installing lastest video card drivers!!!!!!!!

                          Some cards were never designed to support such resolutions, the driver know which card you are using so dont put the odd resolutions in as a standard option.

                              that link took me nowhere, I have a 4 Nvidia cards aroung the place, they are all different models. I use anything from an old tnt card and up the lastest drivers work with all and give all options.

                              Maybe find someone with an older card and try for yourself, you may pick something up on ebay cheap. Its exactly what I have done recently.

                              Just remember the native res for the liliput is 800 x 480. And differnt monitor inf files will allow certain resolutions and some wont on the standard windows properties are.
