    Is 640x480 stupid on a xenarc ?

    Yo fellows ,

    I am encountering the following problem, i am using a xenarc 700 TS on a via epia10000 board, the board and the xenarc is powered by a OPUS 90W. Now when i put my resolution on 800x600 or 1024*768 on 75Hz, 1/2 of the time the xenarc does not behave like it should : it replaces the screen image about 3-4 cm to the right. the only thing i can do is auto adjust the screen by the buttons on the screen. no the problem is, i have bondo'ed these buttons away. The only solution i found was putting the screen on a 640x480 resulotion on 60Hz, now the screen always shows the image the correct way. I am using frodo as front end, and frodo turns out to work great on 640x480, but i would prefere runing it on 800x600 because this is te resolution most skins are build for. Are there any solutions ?

    thnx in advance ....

    800x600 at 60Hz doesn't work for you? That should be the refresh rate at which the Xenarc is happiest (as is the case with many, many LCD panels), and I've had no autodetect problems at that res. Not to imply that you don't already know this, but as LCDs don't flicker the way CRTs do, there's not much point in running the Xenarc about 60 Hz. Hope that helps...

    Why did you get rid of the buttons in the first place?

    first of all thnx for the reply's
    second : I can get to the buttons if i really wont to, but i need to do this 1/2 of the time... (auto adjusting the screen) and this is really frustrating me. now i am running at 640x480 and i don't need to do it any more ... but i would like it more running at 800x600 .....
