    VIA Video Output

    Guys,

    This might be a real dumb question, but going through the forum, I came across that the VIA can't dispaly 800x600 resolution video output that is needed for the Liliput. Does this apply to the newer SP chipsets as well? And anyone could point me to a work around?

    Thanks

    The VIA boards can do 800x600. It's 800x480 that we are all after.

    The only work around is to use a PCI graphics card that CAN be set to 800x480

    Yes at the moment. 800x600 works OK though.

    Not true........

    We already find the way for the S3 chipset (via's video card) to display 800x480.

    There are people testing the new bios/driver only complain so far is that the lilliput doesn't lock with the 60hz refresh time.

    I'm just waiting for xenarc to send me a new screen (after play with it for 3 months ) and I then going to start to play with powerstrip.

    Chec this thread :

    Finally somebody with the bios/driver
