How can i switch to 1980x1080@24Hz - TimSalabim - 2009-05-08 16:30

Hello im a newbie *g* i have installed XBMC live on a memorystick in my new acer aspire revo.

My Sony TV supports 24hz, how can i switch the screen resolution to 1920x1080P@24hz.

In the screen resolution menu i can only choose 1920x1080i or p and 50hz 51hz 52 and so on.

I too have this problem with a GeForce 9500GT running XBMC Live. Tried Linux (Ubuntu 8.10 & 9.04), with latest nVidia drivers and SVN-versions of XBMC Babylon as well with the same result. Could it be the graphics drivers?

In Windows it works like a charm Stare

Linux doesn't seem to read the EDID of some devices properly. For my Epson projector, I had to use xrandr and manually add a modeline to get 24p.


- TimSalabim - 2009-05-09 12:38

hmm, can you explain what i have to do ?


- dlmh - 2009-05-12 14:52

Anyone knows how to fix this? The only thing holding me back to use XBMC Live instead of a Windows install is not having 24p playback... it's not specific to XBMC Live, just the nVidia Linux driver (probably), but I seriously don't know how to fix this.

Some more info maybe useful:

Motherboard: Gigabyte EP31-DS3
CPU: Intel Core2Duo E8400 (3.0GHz)
Memory: OCZ 1GB
GPU: Gigabyte nVidia Geforce GF9500GT 512MB (HDMI/DVI/VGA)

Thanks!

Try this. Only way I got my Panasonic plasma to work in 1080p:

Will this fix the refreshrates or just the resolution? I DO get 1080p60 whatever refreshrate I choose from display settings (which strangely says 51,52,53,54,55,56 Hz, but not 23.976H,24,25,30,50 and 60Hz).

Am I able to run those commands from XBMC Live or just in Linux? (pardon my noobiness, I'm very familiar with OSX and quite some with Windows, Linux never really has been my thing)

It will fix both.But you need to enter some data about your TV and video card. Also it's an application that you run in a terminal in Linux.

Hi
can you please install aeon stark and tell me/us how it works on acer revo? Smile


- cejstrup - 2009-05-13 12:05

If you provide me with the size of the TV and these data I can make a modeline and you can give it a go:

HorizSync (minimum and maximum)
VertRefresh (minimum and maximum)

Max pixelclock (you can get this the xorg log file) Smile

Thanks, I will look into it this weekend!

For starters, it's a Samsung 46" LE46A686 LCD-TV, I'll have to check the other specs. Can I do this using Powerstrip in Windows?


- cejstrup - 2009-05-17 08:33

Yes,I guess you should be able to.I don't know that application so I can't tell you for sure.
I got my info from the xorg log file (max pixelclock, this is a video card parameter) and from the TV manual (horizontal sync,vertical refresh).

Hi! Could you help me out generating a 1080p modeline for my tv?

I have a panasonic TH-42PZ70EA, xbmc can´t detect the edid Sad

Max pixelclock = 165 MHz
HorizSync (minimum and maximum) = 31 - 69 kHz
VertRefresh (minimum and maximum) = 59 - 86 Hz

106 cm (diagonal)
922 mm (S) × 518 mm (H)

My tv handles:
1 125 (1 080) / 60p
1 125 (1 080) / 50p

It should also be able to use 24p.

Thanks!

IMPORTANT: I've had several issues with nvidia drivers and/or xbmc version. So this is my tested and verified combination what works without issues for me:

* xbmc live 9.04
* nvifia drivers 180.44



Your TV will not be able to do 24p ,look at your vertical refresh it's 59-86. So it's similar to my TV which means you can get 1080p@60.

Try my xorg.conf with the above combination of xbmc live and nvidia driver.Your TV has the same data as mine,so can't see why it shouldn't work out.Use the whole section from my conf file :
