Joy: hi there, i'm wondering if the situation with VGA_1 being down on a Lenovo T400 is known
Joy: i can't get the driver to see it up, it can't read EDID data and xrandr keeps ignoring it
Joy: it works fine under windows, maybe there's something strange with my TV, it's a Sony LCD
Joy: anyone?
Joy: 'xrandr --output VGA_1 --auto' does nothing, 'xrandr --output VGA_1 --mode 1360x768' simply returns xrandr: cannot find mode 1360x768
Joy: ow, i get it, there's a difference in settings somewhere..
