  1. Force screen resolution

    Nvidia cards need resolution dimensions to be divisible 8 (or was it 16?). Either way 1366 wide is out, try 1360x768. You will hardly notice the 3 pixel black borders down the sides. ;-) That said, trying to get same res on my Sony Bravia TV (VGA connection), the simplified custom res settings on SwitchResX didn't work. I did a google for some ModeLines generated by the windows app PowerStrip and pasted them in (menu on little icon in bottom left of custom res screen). I'm almost there, mines just shunted a tiny bit too much to the right. Going to have to check out the old ModeLine I used on my old Xorg.conf off my old Linux drive, prior to me trying Hackintosh - that was spot on.
  2. No one got a clue? Problem is not noticeable when using the digital out (coax spdif). Also the interference remains the same volume, regardless of how loud I crank the volume on my amp, which would kind of imply its more general interference, rather than in the signal itself... Amp is an Exposure XXV.
  3. Just installed Snow Leopard using [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]+[url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url]. Have upgraded to 10.6.4 and have installed the Envy24HT drivers for my Audiophile 192 sound card. Everything works, as it in boots and can play sound etc. However I'm getting constant interference when ever the machine is busy doing stuff. Scrolling/moving windows, rolling mouse of dock with magnification, caning hard drive off etc, all causes hiss and interference through the speakers. Any ideas? The same hardware didn't produce this interference when running Fedora 10. Guessing its a drivers issue. I've seen a similar effect years ago on a windows machine with unscrupulous graphics card drivers hosing the bus to achieve higher speeds at the expense of other stuff on the bus. Could it be the Envy24Ht drivers, the nvidia drivers or something else? Any boot args I could try to disable some acceleration, see if that helps? I'm running Intel Core 2 Duo e7200, Asus P5K-VM mobo, 2GB ram, Nvidia 9400GT, M-Audio Audiophile 192. SATA HD and DVD-DW. I've disabled onboard video, audio, ide, parallel and serial gubbins.
