Re: DDC info refresh?

have you looked at xrandr?
Doh! Thank you. Yes, that does the trick nicely. I really should not have needed to have been told that.

But does xrandr even work when the video timing info isn't coming from DDC? I thought it'd only switch modes when it knew the modelines to target... Maybe I misunderstood the problem from the start?

I've used xvidtune and other tools to setup modes for more or less guessed modelines on the fly, but never figured any tool could switch you into a video mode without a valid modeline.

Then again, I used to hardcode modeines a lot just to make sure I *could* switch to certain special modes. Maybe that's been auto-magicalized?
