micky, can you help advising how DVI would work.

I have a X1600XT but so far I can have DVI to VGA adaptor working. No DVI.

My system is 10.8.4 with 8.8.1 Kernel.

hey there

Guedes Jr.. both my monitors work.. vga / dvi.. using either dvi to vga adapter and hooking up a crt monitor or a dvi monitor.. but still in "cloned mode or mirrored" as ati like to call this setup under windows..

Still waiting for a solution for extended desktop on my atix 1600 PCIE either then getting a nvidia card..

thanks.



Hi, yes

Hi all,

Ok lets go!

1# install a natit uni.kext and caucho info.plist,
2# put my DVI monitor EDID into plist in DFP@1 EDID , i use a proper plist editor for this!
3# delete e LVDS key for a plist file ( all key, only have now a DFP@1 kay into file)
4# rapair all permissions and reboot.

note, i have signal im DVI port, but if i use a detect display function i loose a video signal!,
if a analogic monitor is plug in VGA port i have a mirror screnn (display) but no have dual extend!
a analogic display is shows in ioreg = CRT2 display.

i hope this help! sorry my bad inglish..

HI fellas! I have an ATI Shappire x1600 PCIe 512mb and Im having problems to find a working and easy way to properly configure it. (no resolution switching, no QE/CI, card not recogniced as x1600 512mb)

I have made a clean JAS 10.4.8 install and tried many methods, but none works properly for me . (even using dvi/vga adapter, of couse)

You, that nice people who have do it.. PLEASE!!! Help me with a proven method, easily step by step explained, Im a bit desperate.

Thank you so much.
