Lilliput 7" VGA and EPIA M9000 issues...
Well I sort of have things working, but something still does not make sense.
(Thanks NJay for the timings.. I started with those and played around a bit....
For those who are interested, NJay dumped a buttload of modes with their timings @ http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...744#post131744
In windows on the EPIA-M 9000, I am still having driver issues... Both WinXP and Win2K complain about driver being misconfigured and either give me 640x480x4bpp or 800x600x16bpp with no valid modes to switch to. Powerstrip at this point either complains that the driver is not setup right, or starts up but the advanced timings button is greyed out always.
I have tried every version of the drivers... From the CD that the board came with, and the few versions from VIA's website...
In Linux, I configure the framebuffer (I use the VIA viafb.o kernel module), and everything works ok for modes like 640x480 and 800x600. However, when I configure for a custom mode like 848x480, i always get "Out of Range" on the lilliput.
Now, if I connect my desktop with a geforce2 (and right timing info) to the lilliput, the screen does 848x480@72Hz like a champ.. If I program the exact same timings from powerstrip on my desktop into the cle266 linux framebuffer device and try to look at it on the lilliput, boom... out of range..
It doesnt make any sense. I guess the VIA framebuffer device is not full featured and doesn't support some custom timings? That doesn't really make sense though.. And what about the stupid windows drivers issues?
Any one have any ideas?? Please help a brother out ;)
P.S. I also tried hooking up the EPIA running linux to my viewsonic monitor, and I do get a signal that resembles 848x480.. its hard to tell.. Looks close enough :)
I believe the culprit in this case is my epia board.. I guess i'll have to pickup the M10000 nehemiah and see what happends with that one..
Anyone else with similar problems? Please weigh in....
