Re: Updates do not work properly

Hi can anyone please help me out with AmiUpdate. I have version 2.43 installed on my X5000. However I can't update to 2.47 or anything newer than I have. I've already set the update server to codebench but no updates are found. I also went to the amiupdate website and to the Downloads section to try...

Re: Can't set 2560x1440 monitor resolution - ASUS VX24AH

DVI sounds like it may "just work" - the problem for me though is my monitor only has 1x VGA port and 2x HDMI ports on the back. I've been emailing Hans and we has been great with advice with different things to try, he even sent me a beta display driver to test with my monitor too. Unfortunately we...

Re: Can't set 2560x1440 monitor resolution - ASUS VX24AH

Judging from your tries something seema to calculate the frequencies wrong. 1920x1080@61 with H freq 68.70 kHz = Displays test pattern (weirdly this on is actually @60 in my icon information but shows as @61 in ScreenModes) 1920x1080@65 with H freq 72.88 kHz = the dreaded "Out of Range" wrt the wro...

Re: Can't set 2560x1440 monitor resolution - ASUS VX24AH

Ok I've now also tried all possibly resolutions that will show up in AvailableModes for 2560x1440 in +RB and -RB. I then tried adding a D to the end of each res line too in the monitor icon information so that they'd all be DoubleScan! With Double Scan none at all showed up. +RB and -RB also all giv...

Re: Can't set 2560x1440 monitor resolution - ASUS VX24AH

Ok the plot thickens... I I've had a look in linux as my display settings to see what other clues may be there. Now it lists 1920x1200 as also available. So I tried setting that up on the Amiga, just to try to get even nearer to the desired 2560x1440!! I tried lots of @60,@59,@58 etc etc and when I ...

Re: Can't set 2560x1440 monitor resolution - ASUS VX24AH

The only thing left i could recommend is to write down the HSync and VSync figures that ScreenModePrefs displays for the 1920x1080 resolution. Create more of those in your monitor file, like this: 1920x1080@50 1920x1080@55 1920x1080@60 1920x1080@65 1920x1080@70 1920x1080@76 between 50 and 76 Hz (wh...

Re: Can't set 2560x1440 monitor resolution - ASUS VX24AH

Really strange. What resolution are you using Workbench in when not trying to use 256x1440? What gfx card do you use with the Amiga? Which cable/port do you use? (VGA, DVI, HDMI?) What version of the gfx driver? You can try (+/-)RB, but they only reduce/enhance the frequency. Since you already test...

Re: Can't set 2560x1440 monitor resolution - ASUS VX24AH

Ok by adjusting HSYNCMAX to 99000 every resolution I've tried now shows from @63 down to @48 and everything in between. So thanks for getting them showing up for me!! @47 and lower won't show up. @64 and higher still show up but start showing really weird Hsync numbers and even wrong vsync too so I ...
