  • My two cents on 800x480

    It is a solid fact that the VIA mainboard built-in graphic cards do not support this resolution and many ppl have requested this tweak at VIA.

    What I think is that even if VIA gets this 800x480 mode developed it will be likely that the monitor won't recognize it as it happens with other videocards that already do support this mode.

    The issue infact is double:
    1. Get the resolution on the graphic card drivers
    2. Get the correct values for monitor parameters (porches, refresh rates, etc...)

    Just my two cents, I've been asking in other forums also to find out if anybody knew the values for the second part of our problem, but no luck for now.

    Have you guys tried using powerstrip to create a custom resolution?

          I've installed a Matrox Millenium PCI video card and with the modeline from Xenarc, the monitor detects 800x480 with no problems at all.

            And does the Lilliput recognize it?
            I will change my video card if you assure me it does. I got a Matrox too
            I also got a Nvidia GF4Mx. If any of these works I'd be willing to change,

                  I thought someone was sending a monitor to VIA to make a driver?

                    Search on "Powerstrip". It's been discussed zillions of times.

                      Take a look at this guys site for the values you are looking for. At least they are the ones he's using for his Xenarc display and mac mini.

                      Hope that helps.

                          that's nearly exactly what I was looking for (but I need the same for lilliput)
                          thanks anyway

                          I think that ppl who got it working on lilliput (with the display on the screen showing 800x480) should open powerstrip up and write out - here - the values (porches, refressh rates) that powerstrip detects at that res.

                          Can anyone do that pls?

                            The lilliput's natural res is 800x480 so not only does it support this mode with other graphics cards but it looks much much better.
