Does anyone know how a high resolution monitor limits resolution over VGA, and if there is a reasonably easy way to hack it?
I just got a U3011 (2560x1600 native, but only 2048x1280 over VGA). I do know for the fact that the video card is capable of higher resolution since it works fine with the Matrox TripleHead2Go and 3x19" monitors for a total resolution of 3840x1024. That is 3,932,160 pixels vs 4,096,000 pixels, a mere 4% difference. On the monitor's side, there would be a 36% difference between analog and digital pixel count, but I'm 99% certain that the analog circuitry's bandwidth is higher than what's absolutely needed for 2048x1280.
Can I just send some fake EDID data to the display adapter?
