setting ATI EDID?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got Natit working with my Radeon mobility v5200 by changing instances of "Alopias" to "Wormy" in the Info.plist, but I cannot figure how to get my internal LCD working! I got my EDID, but I dont know where i can insert it in the Info.plist. Can anyone give me some help, it would be MUCH appreciated!

 

my thinkpad t60p would be fully working! smile.gif

 

Thanks,

?? how does that help me with the edid? :sorcerer:

 

its not that i don't get video on my internal LCD, its just garbled colors -- i think the EDID string isn't set correctly. can any thinkpad t60p owners chime in and help me?

There has been a lot of problems with notebook screens and I wanted to show you an alternative solution in case you can't get your screen working correctly. Obviously it doesn't help you with edid.

I believe you need to use some editor like PlistEditPro because the EDID data needs to be encoded. Open the Info.plist in the editor and paste your data where shown. In the editor, it will show the "@0, EDID" key in left column and you will paste your EDID data in right column.
