    did you set it as a timing resolution?

    I've googled it up many times but this seems to be the only way to get 800x480.

    Isn't there a way to whack that ONE setting into display config directly?

    DisplayConfigX costs more than I'm willing to pay for a one-off solution...

    Although I guess the real reason is I'm unwilling to shell out more cash until I'm certain that an OSX front end is the way to go.




    P.S. I am in NO way saying that displayconfigX is a waste of time - it's great, if I was a graphic designer I'd love the extra functionality that it provides, with multiple resolutions and tailored timings - especially for projector work. It's just a whole program for one resolution seems like complete overkill.

    Yes, there is. The files with these settings are stored in /System/Library/Displays/Overrides/ If you can figure out the file structure (I belive it is documented somewhere on ADC), you can achieve exactly the same result as with DisplayConfigX. But believe me, it is much better and (counting your time) cheaper to just buy DisplayConfig X...

    i have tried settings in displayconfigx from these forums and ones found on macvroom.com but they all result in my eby701 "going out of range" has anyone used these settings and got the eby701 to display 800x480 on an intel mac mini?

    (i purchased the software so i have full functionality)

    you've got to remember to change the refresh rate from 100hz to 60hz. had the same issues and fixed that and works great on both my eby701 and 889gl.

    as long as i know others have done it on the eby701, i will have to play around with it more. all the documentation seems to talk about the gl series screens. thank you

    bandwidth 29.910
    horizontal frequency 30.151
    refresh rate 60.302

    must be a timing resolution

    i think those are the settings i used. i'll check to make sure
    let me know if you have questions
    I entered these settings exactly into the purchased "newest version" of display config x as a timing and clicked install then rebooted and upon reboot got the blue screen of "out of range"

    Only difference is where you refer to it as "bandwidth" the first field under "back porch" is called "pixel frequency" in display config x.

    Am i missing something here? I have the eby701 and an intel core duo mac mini with all newest updates.

    I've just put these settings into my Lilliput 629GL-70NP (run from a Mac Mini) and the size is great but I am getting excessive flickering that I didn't get before (at the higher resolutions).

    Anybody have any ideas for more suitable Refresh Rates. I presume that the problem is with the refresh rate?
