  1. Hi bcc9, I have just come across your postings. I hope you are still monitoring this thread. I have an XFX 5770 (ZMF3) card with 3 physical connectors, DVI : DVI : MDP. When I used the tools you linked to, I found that the card BIOS reports 5 connectors: ATOM BIOS Rom: SubsystemVendorID: 0x1682 SubsystemID: 0x2994 IOBaseAddress: 0x0000 Filename: 577ZMF73.BIN BIOS Bootup Message: JUNIPER BIOS UCODEv:1255 PCI ID: 1002:68b8 Connector at index 0 Type [@offset 44278]: DisplayPort (10) Encoder [@offset 44282]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY2 (0x21) i2cid [@offset 44380]: 0x91, OSX senseid: 0x2 Connector at index 1 Type [@offset 44288]: DVI-I (2) Encoder [@offset 44292]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY1 (0x20) i2cid [@offset 44417]: 0x93, OSX senseid: 0x4 Connector at index 2 Type [@offset 44298]: DVI-I (2) Encoder [@offset 44302]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC2 (0x16) i2cid [@offset 44417]: 0x93, OSX senseid: 0x4 Connector at index 3 Type [@offset 44308]: DVI-I (2) Encoder [@offset 44312]: INTERNAL_UNIPHY (0x1e) i2cid [@offset 44454]: 0x92, OSX senseid: 0x3 Connector at index 4 Type [@offset 44318]: DVI-I (2) Encoder [@offset 44322]: INTERNAL_KLDSCP_DAC1 (0x15) i2cid [@offset 44454]: 0x92, OSX senseid: 0x3 I noticed that you were uncertain about your connector types in the original post I have to admit that I'm guessing, but there are a few clues here: There are 3 physical connectors, but five reported by the BIOS. Logically then there must be 2 more. Then I remembered that DVI can be either DVI-D (digital only), or DVI-I (digital with -I-ntegrated analog). Looking at the output from the radeon_bios_decode tool, there's another clue in each of the 'Encoder' lines, connectors at indexes 2 and 4 have the acronym DAC in their descriptions, which usually stands for Digital to Analog Converter. Therefore I'm concluding that I do indeed have 5 physical connectors, it's just that my DVI ports are DVI-I and combine the digital and analog. Looking at the output from your ati_personality script, I'm going to suggest that cards with DVI-I will have personalities like this: 0000000 00 04 00 00 04 03 00 00 00 01 00 00 12 04 05 01 #MDP 0000010 04 00 00 00 04 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 11 02 01 02 #DVI-D 0000020 00 02 00 00 14 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 03 03 #DVI-A 0000030 04 00 00 00 04 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 11 02 01 04 #DVI-D 0000040 00 02 00 00 14 02 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 03 05 #DVI-A I'm suggesting that 00 20 00 00 is the analog port of DVI-I. What do you think? RTH
