AIW 9600 and 1080i

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.ati (More info?)

I connected a VGA to RGB cable between the VGA 2 connector
on my AIW 9600 to a Mitsubishi HDTV monitor. It displays fine
in 480p but not 1080i.

The horizontal sync period output by the AIW 9600 is about
16 microseconds in either 1080p or 1080i. The period should
be twice that for the interlaced mode.

How do I get the AIW 9600 to output 1080i when the 1080i
mode is selected?????

    That older card is NOT compatible with HDTV's.

    Guess you missed this little tidbit on the same site/next page:


    Multiple component video modes available for use.

    a.. The HDTV Component Video Adapter will support:
    a.. 480i (interlaced)
    b.. 480p (progressive)
    c.. 720p
    d.. 1080i
    Modes can be easily set with switches on the adapter or with the
    software provided on the installation CD.

    My guess would be a quick view of the Help file will have info on where the
    switches are on the adapter and/or what section of the software controls
    this setting.

    Just wanted to point out that the 9600 wasn't that old. Guess I was overly
    sarcastic. Yesterday was very stressful.

    Looks like the only reason I can't get my AIW 9600 to output
    1080i is a fascist routine in ATI's driver that ignores the
    interlace flag if the extra cost dongle is not detected.

    Or else 1080i just doesn't work and ATI forgot to tell anyone.

    Or it works in component but not DVI.
