I only checked the old Kickstarts one. Version 0.61, but most significant perhaps, installed August 2016 and nothing newer.

Yes, somewhere along in the installation it warned me that it would be a limited Radeon, and what to do about it, but my current stage of dementia didn't retain the latter info. But after posting yesterday I remember answering a query from Christian of Linux fame about what Radeon I had, and I had answered with something very like "... 5450." I suspect that the RadeonHD.chip in the X1000 Kickstart must be it. I'll look for its version number, but probably try copying it over in any event.I'm guessing your newly installed system has the cut-down free version which is limited to the lower resolution, and at least one of the ones you had on the X1000 is the full version you bought. If so - and the version numbers will help us find out - you can just copy the one from the X1000 installation to the new Kickstart.
0.61 is actually the cut-down free version from the FE install CD. You want to overwrite that with whatever you used on the X1000, to get the higher resolutions to work.kilaueabart wrote:I only checked the old Kickstarts one.

Good to hear!I haven't tried it yet, but had success with the internet stuff (I found the instructions for setting up my modem, and guessed at which IP addresses were right). I am doing this from the SAM right now!
Small puzzle: I got that figure running "version miscellany:sysBackup/Kickstart/RadeonHD.chip," or so I thought, but trying again today, I came up with 2.18, the same number I get clicking on the icon's "version string"!? Maybe I looked at the new SAM item instead of the one I meant to? I guess you have already said yes on that.nbache wrote:0.61 is actually the cut-down free version from the FE install CD.

Having copied the last into the new Kickstart, it has the same version number of course. One result of that copy is that Prefs > Screenmode is now fully populated to Board 0: 1280x1024 ARGB32. I'm not sure what "Board 0" means, but in any event selecting that last mode made no change in the Workbench screen. Still almost 3" of black on both sides. It occurs to me that I didn't have a wide screen with my SAM before; I got a new monitor after the X1000, so perhaps the SAM doesn't have a card capable of 1280 pixels wide?
Remembering that I used to use Radeon 5450, I replaced the RV730 in Devs > Monitors with that, but it was a bad move that I have reversed, but not retested yet. My current Workbench hangs down about one inch from the top of the screen. Fortunately, everything I open on it, such as this Odyssey, fills the screen top-to-bottom anyway, if not side-to-side. Both Radeon HD 5450 and Radeon RV730 are version RTG 54.1 and 6560 bytes, but the former squeezes those bytes into 7 blocks while the latter uses 14.
I hope you will notice something in this data, even if it means I would have to buy a new video card.
Is Radeon RV730 really the same as Radeon HD 5450? Devs > Monitors in DH0: says RV730 and even when I replaced it with the 5450, Prefs Screenmode > Monitor refused to change. Could that mean the SAM has a different card from what the X1000 has? In any event, I get full resolution vertically, as before, but not full width, even though 1280x1024 is selected in Screenmode.
I googled for a manual and found the technical specs for that monitor, and yes, those are the correct frequencies for it. Whether you had 70 or 60 as Max. VSync is probably less important, because you probably want to use the monitor's preferred mode which is 1920×1080@60Hz.kilaueabart wrote:The monitor in question is a Samsung S23C570. Minimum VSync 60, Maximum VSync 60 (but it was 70 when javierdl asked me yesterday!), Minumum Hsync 31000, Maximum HSync 85000.
Sounds great. I assume that by full screen you mean 1920×1080?UPDATE: Since making changes to Screenmode > Monitors (use preferred mode, detect settings automatically), I have booted full screen twice.
I have seen that very rarely on different machines here, I don't know for sure what causes it, but it might be an idea to make sure your DVI cable is of good quality and that the plugs are securely inserted at both ends.Well, the second time only got about two-thirds vertical, but I don't expect that to be a regular happening.
