Yeah i came across that but i'd assume DVI to be superior (i.e. more
recent, hence better) than VGA... Also, could the monitor's EDID be
reporting erroneous values?

I switched to VGA to give it a try, these are the results:

# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 1280 x 1024
default connected 1280x1024+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1280x1024 60.0*

320x240 60.0

These look like the basic VESA resolutions. I wonder if you could
force any additional resolutions by adding custom modelines to your
xorg.conf file.


Any chance that it's a wide screen that has an option in the menu to either
automatically or manually adjust to a standard 3:4 resolution?

I've got a samsung syncmaster and on this particular monitor at least if I set
menu->setup->image size
to auto instead of wide (so that it gives a non-stretched screen for 3:4
resolutions) the edid comes out wrong and X doesn't recognize the high
resolutions. I don't recall what is the default behavior with this monitor
