    MB896 and 800x480 setup?

    First post after a search for the answer.

    Have the MB896 with 1.4GHz Pent. M running on the bench connected to a Xenarc 700TSV. XP Pro w SP2 + all updates, latest 915GM drivers from Intel.

    The BIOS setup allows selection of "Panel Scaling" and "Panel Number of 800x480 at 18bit SC". However after many attempts at various combinations, I can not get the deisred 800x480 out to the Xenarc.

    Has anyone done this with this board? If so please share the detailed steps.

    Thank you,
    Neil.

    For the last 2 days I've been pulling my hair trying to get that golden native "800x480" resolution on my TSV... I've even tried the powerstrip program from Xenarc FAQ

    what affects being able to do a 800x480 resolution? the monitor, mobo, or vid card?

    I believe it is the vid card, but this includes the mobo on many boards because of the integrated video. If you buy an Nvidia card you can output in this resolution just fine, but the integrated intel has some troubles, either because the BIOS on the mobo doesn't allow it, or because the vid card doesn't support it.

    It's actually the BIOS on the video card that limits the resolutions available under Windows. In most (all?) cases, the video hardware itself can be programmed to generate whatever resolution you want, but you can only take advantage of this if you are running Linux.

    BIOS if for LVDS output only. See the thread on getting Intel Graphics to work using Xenarc. It should work with those settings.

    I have the cpu, mobo, lilliput, everything... but I haven't even tried to install the lilliput drivers yet and get 800x480 working. I'm going to make sure there's a System Restore point set before I do, so I can at least roll back the drivers and such. I'll try to do it this weekend and keep you posted.
