I just tested modeline:
Modeline "1600x1200" 417.70 1600 1808 2312 3272 1200 1200 1205 1276
in two ways
1. just adding it inside monitor section of xorg.conf
- then it gave me 93.3kHz/85Hz with 1400x1050 resolution
2. adding it in monitor section and removing all other resolutions
- this gave me 120.3kHz/75Hz with 2048x1536 resolution
Monitor survived without any problem, but none of these resolutions
do not fit what I need.
who can calculate Modeline for 1600x1200 on this monitor.
Thanks in advance.
