- Firstly, when selecting an option from the initial screen resolution, connector, frequency page and pressing next (or enter), it can take a really long time to show the screen where you have to confirm. Like 8 minutes! Any idea what's going on there? That's, of course, tricky, because you tend to be doing something else so catching the "yes it's ok" bit in 10 seconds is tricky.
I've never seen this happen.
- Secondly - 1280x1024 doesn't seem to work any more. I select it because it's definitely what I had previously, but
when it "tests" it, the screen is oversized - ie lots of the buttons are offscreen. I went through with it anyway, because
I figure maybe there's something quirky about avwiz and I could guess my way through blindly having done
it so often ;-) But then when I finally get to a running system it's the same problem - the menu bar is offscreen.
And when I check the monitor it says it's receiving 1024x768, not 1280x1024 which I chose.
I can confirm that in webadmin the media director video settings are 1280 1024/60.
The intel video drivers have changed drastically from 1004 to 1204 and could be part of the issue. Otherwise I'm not entirely sure.
I can't see any Xorg.conf file. Do we use one anymore? How to troubleshoot?
Yes we use xorg.conf (except on the rpi). If you do not have an xorg.conf file after avwizard then there is an issue there for sure.
- And then finally, just a question - Does the frequency still matter in the AVWiz screen setup? Especially for LCD screens? Is there a default? I'm assumig 50 or 60 Hz? Will it make much difference? Should one experiment with these?
It does not make a difference on LCD monitors (that I have tried). But is very important for proper operation of CRT monitors. I'm not sure how this data is being utilized in the current AV setup scripts.
