Has anyone figured out the format for the monitor list/timings in the Radius software?
I don’t get great results at 1600x1200 with my Thunder IV because the LCD that I have it going into really prefers the VESA frequencies (it’s 1600x1200 native), and I wind up with ghosting and such at the frequencies the software does offer. It’s definitely not the cable either, I’ve used the same cable with a Sony GPD-400 and gotten a rock solid image at the same resolution/frequencies. Barring some sort of interlocking requirements, it should be possible for the Thunder IV to generate VESA frequencies (even for 1600x1200 they’re lower than some of what it can output), so it’d be great to be able to add a VESA entry to the monitors list. So, has anyone done the necessary reverse engineering work yet? I believe a cursory look a year or so ago showed the information was all in resources, I presume there’s just a list of timings to program into the clock generators. — Chris Sent from my iPad > On Apr 16, 2018, at 7:16 AM, 'Raj Patel' via Vintage Macs > <email@example.com> wrote: > > hi, > on my 840av with Radius precision color 8-24x i had difficulty getting to > 1024x768 on a standard VGA display. > > But i solved it this is how i got there. > > Install dynamic desktop / radius : http://www.kan.org/6100/nubus.html > Ensure display is set to 'Radius Precisioncolor/19" > Color to 256 > Pram-Zap > > On boot you should be able to access 'dynamic desktop' by hitting 'Control > +option' (unless you have changed it, check by going to the Radius Dynamic > app in control panel, at the top. > > If you have completed all steps correctly you should see various resolution > modes.
