    24" Widescreen CRT (FW900) From Ebay arrived,Comments.

    I grabbed a sunix 3000 mini dp variant but having issues getting a good looking 1920x1200 85hz image up how are you guys adding custom resolutions? I added 1920x1200 85hz but left the timings section alone and the image hardly fills up half the screen and not sharp at all.

    Sadly one of them won't power on (the one that was in the box but previously opened) so I have to start swapping boards from a working one to try and figure out what the issue could be. Who knows why these sat at nikon for 13 years It's pretty crazy when you think about it, who knows how many...

    Does anyone with a hdfury 2 know where I can get a power cable for it? Can't find a jack small enough anywhere, I read it was 1.5mm but went to a store with 1.2mm and even that was too big.

    Turned out to be junk, lots of interference on the screen and the need to toggle the resolution everytime, lack of power button etc is a deal breaker. Went ahead and ordered an hdfury 2, hopefully that's better.

    I'm going to use this primarily for hdmi consoles on the fw900 so no need for more than 1080p/60, but lag may be an issue (though I doubt it would be more lag than a console straight into an average lcd hdtv) Whats the best program/website to check lag with? I have an older pc with vga that...

    Have had my eye on this for a while as an alternative to the current hdfury offerings Extron Digital to Analog Converters - DVI-RGB 200 does 1920x1200 60hz max if I read the user guide properly, Not exactly amazing but would work very well for consoles via an hdmi adapter. Extron build...

    so whats the best card that still has analog support was hoping the 1070 would have it but looks like nv dropped it from all of their cards also does anyone know if the fw900 supports 1:1 pixel mapping? I have an rgb scaler that requires it to get the most out of the scaler

    doesn't look widescreen to me at all, you can see the small broadcast monitor to the left which is 100% 4:3 and the vga monitors in question have a similar aspect ratio Anyway I did some digging and they seem to be NEC MultiSync FE700 or similar monitors Also other then the fw900 and its...

    When mine had the same issue leaving it on all the time helped in the beginning but it got worse and worse, swapping the board eventually fixed it though.

    Yeah my old 280x had analog support and my 290 doesn't looks fantastic. Need to find a card that supports analog and calibrate mine, this vga/hdmi adapter just doesn't cut it.

    Make sure it's not something stupid like the cable and see if it does the same on both inputs. If the issues persist then see if tapping it lightly in certain areas effect it, might be a bad solder joint then.

    Been messing around with the osd and was wondering how fine can the geometry be tuned with windas on these? Is it possible to get near perfect geometry and even convergence with windas? Is it even worth messing around with windas if your geometry and convergence is like 8.5/10
